Once, the name Macalister Hale was uttered in the boardroom with respect. Now, it’s whispered in disgrace at cocktail parties hosted by Boston’s elite.
Scandal nearly destroyed me, but the one thing larger than my infamy is my bank account, and I’ve learned money can solve anything.
Sophia Alby’s preferred currency is secrets and the way she trades information puts Wall Street to shame.
This girl charges into my life and claims a partnership can restore my reputation. My downfall was swift, but with her, my climb to redemption will be greater.
Our arrangement is professional. Appropriate. It has to be, because she’s half my age. But it doesn’t stop me from wanting . . .
To move on. To control and indulge in her. To hear the name Macalister Hale echo in her breathy moans.
But I can’t. Giving in to temptation led to my undoing before, and I won’t survive it a second time.
The title is so fitting. I bought this book before I finished the end of the third one in the series, not realizing that it was a divergent story line, I just knew it would be good; the first three were SO. GOOD.
When I realized it was a divergent storyline I was excited but also bummed, I couldn’t imagine how this could compete with the plot twists and direction of the first three, nor how the relational dynamics could compete.
At first, I was so excited, found myself giggling. Then we start to see Macalister change and there’s a good portion at the beginning that feels like it slides in to tropes, and doesn’t have the same tension that so perfectly sustained the first three books. But, right about halfway, things start to shift and now, having just finished it and considering it from start to finish, it’s just what this character and his story need. It’s such a wonderful redemption, and it truly is such a delight to feel happiness for him. So worth it. Such a great treatment of a complicated, complex, hurting character, and giving him the chance to find redemption.
Macalister and Sophia were awesome! Loved the story and getting to see the good side of Macalister we didn’t see in the other books.
Incredible! The chemistry between the two main characters was intense. Loved every moment of this book!
