Cara Michal has had to fight every step of the way to earn her place in the glittering seven-figure world of Wall Street. Years ago her hardworking father, a small-time investment adviser, was humiliated and wrongfully accused of fraud. Now Cara is at the top of her game, trying to support not only herself but her mother and brother. The occasional night out dancing soothes Cara’s soul, even as a bitter need for revenge against the man who destroyed her father makes inner peace elusive.
Then, in a moment of heat, Cara kisses a sexy stranger at a party—only later to discover that the man is Branden Duke, her new boss, an infamous operator with a wicked reputation in bed and on the Street. Branden is a man who seemingly has it all—except a woman who connects with him on a physical and emotional level. Now that he’s found Cara, he’s not sure he can let her go, even if he should.
In spite of herself, Cara is drawn to this charismatic guy. He is a challenge like none she has ever faced in her life. Their passion for each other is unquenchable, surprising them both with its ferocity. Even as Cara wonders if she can trust this man with her heart and soul, the ecstasy of their love cannot be denied. But when the past threatens the present, the two are faced with a truth from which they may never recover.

Book review: 3 stars
Before I read this book I was not familiar with the author, the sexy cover and great blurb intrigued me so I decided to asked for it.
Sadly I struggled to finish it, the plot was very interesting and intriguing but the development of the story wasn’t good enough to hook me up.
Cara Michal had a rough life, after her father died she had to look after her mom and brother. She’s trying to make a career on Wall Street, so work is everything for her and there is no way she will risk everything she has accomplished until she met Braden.
Cara met Branden Duke on a party and the chemistry was instantly and she immediately was drawn to him, without knowing he just bought the company she works for and that he is her new boss. As both of them can’t resist to be apart from each other, they decided to give it a try. But things get complicated when she started to receive threats and now Braden has to find out who is this person that want to hurt them.
At the beginning, the story was promising, it had suspense and intrigue but then there was too much information that wasn’t necessary that makes look like the author wanted to do it longer, and at the end when we finally knew what was going on, things started to go too fast and it was hard for me to keep up.
Cara couldn’t make up her mind, she wanted him but she was not supposed to, I hate her for doing that to Braden. She was supposed to be independant but she didn’t even know what she wanted, aghhhh. Braden on the other hand, was a great alpha male, so intense and dominant. Just how I love my book boyfriends.
I recommend you to read it to judge for yourself. maybe this book just wasn’t for me.
