Synopsis

Thea Reagan: Good girl? Always.
Loyal daughter? Without a doubt.
Hiding a scandalous secret? Only when night falls.

I put up a good act, hiding my true self beneath a wholesome mask. But as the daughter of a High Court Judge I must be extremely careful, and the men I entertain must be relied upon to be discreet.

However, everything changes when Vincent, my stepbrother, comes into my life. Rugged, handsome and downright dirty, he’s a far cry from the rich businessmen I’ve set my sights on. But Vincent inadvertently sets in motion a chain of horrid events that sends my world into a dangerous spin.

The scandal would ruin me, embarrass my father and lower his opinion of me.

Bribed, threatened, and used, I’m trapped and can see no way out… I can’t ask for help and yet Vincent takes it upon himself to deliver the final blow.

Vincent Hudson: Bad Boy? F*ck yeah!
Disowned? I didn’t need them anyway.
Man with a temper? Keep looking at me like that and you’ll find out.

When the red curtain of rage falls over my eyes, I’m unable stop myself. The anger that builds up inside me demands an outlet: a punching bag, a man’s face…

In my line of business the reputation of being a savage can come in extremely handy. But this time it went too far.

I’m a sucker for a damsel in distress and though when I met Thea she is anything but helpless, I can’t help but think she will be my f*cking downfall.

And one gratifying act could mean a lifetime in prison.

This is a story of a Good Girl gone bad. And a Bad Boy foolishly trying to do good.

**This is a standalone novel with a HEA**

My Review

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

I know it’s considered a “step brother” romance because these two main characters parents are married, it’s not like they have ever even been around each other. So the taboo nature of that, for me, was pretty nonexistent….

Vincent is a man with a temper. He can’t stand men who abuse women, or being lied to. Most of the time that’s when his temper rears its ugly head. He’s also a loan shark, so really that temper can come in handy. His cover is a gym he runs. However, he wants to go legit.

Thea is a judges daughter who has a secret life as a high priced call girl. She meets Vincent in a hotel bar while on a “date” with the douchy owner of said hotel. The attraction between these two is immediate.

Well, of course things can’t work out all easy peasy now can they?

Without too many spoilers suffice it to say that Vincent takes care of a problem but not to the extent that is at first assumed. Thea does what she needs to clear his name.

All in all it was a decent, quick little read. I enjoyed the chemistry between the two main characters. This was my first Emilia Beaumont book and I look forward to reading more.
