Being Blackmailed by Family
This is an interesting storyline of how by being blackmailed and at the same time finding love through the pain. As we find the two main characters Cain Farrell being blackmailed from the grave by his father who stipulate that he has to live in his fathers home and run the family with two half brothers unknown to him as a result of Cain’s father numerous affairs with other women. Then there is Devon Cole who has been devoted to her father since her mother’s death when she was a young teen girl and now he is forcing her to a arrange blackmail marriage with Cain.
When the couple first met at Cain’s fathers repast there was a spark between them but neither knew that they would both be blackmailed into a forced marriage.
I found this to be an emotional read because two see two innocent peoples lives being turned upside down all because of the sins of their father’s control and greed. The hurt and pain they both were going through, I wanted to help Devon punish her father myself.
The storyline held my attention and was a pager turner to the very end. I can’t wait to find out if their will be a backstory on Cain’s two half brothers Achilles and Kenan.
I highly recommend this book to read especially with the romance, suspense, steamy, power play and blackmailing storyline.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
What a fantastic story! It was the perfect enemies to lovers, arranged marriage romance, exactly what I needed. The attraction between Cain and Devon was instant even though they didn’t think they would ever see each other after their chance meeting. Little did they know that they would soon be blackmailed into a marriage to one another. Even with the blackmail held over their heads they couldn’t fight the attraction to each other and wow was it HOT! These two were explosive once they gave in to the attraction.
This book was fabulous and once you start reading you will not be able to set it down. I can’t wait for Achilles and Kenan’s books!
Great start of new series
Devon and Cain are worth rooting for and this was a wonderful read. There was so much in this story, blackmail, manipulation, lies, chemistry and love. The family dynamics was great. Naima Simone never disappoints with her perfect stories. I could not put this book down and can’t wait for anymore books in this series.
