Description

Fueled by desire and anger, an ex-con plots to take everything he wants now that he's free in this tale of romantic suspense from the author of Sin for Me.

After eight years in prison, Levi Rush is finally out and back on the gritty streets of Detroit to claim the future he was owed. A future that includes the one woman he's wanted for years—his former best friend Rachel. She's the reason he went inside, and if getting her to do what he wants means buying the building that houses her tattoo studio and using it as leverage, then that's what he'll do. Because if there's one thing he's learned inside it's that if you want to win, you have to play dirty.

Rachel Hamilton is a tattoo artist and one hell of a tough girl. Detroit is her home, and she's determined to make it a better place. But her plans are threatened when her old friend Levi reappears and gives her an ultimatum: she gives herself to him body and soul, or else she and her business are out on the street. Levi's got no room in his heart for anything but anger and the lust he's been carrying around for so long. But the only thing stronger than the secrets of their shared past is their fiery attraction to each other...

        October 10, 2016
        Ashendon fumbles the balance on her second Motor City Royals erotic contemporary (after Dirty for Me), set in Detroit. Rachel Hamilton and Levi Rush were best friends before Levi spent eight years in prison for manslaughter; they’re not sure how to be friends again now that he’s out, since Rachel never visited him. Sexual tension drips off the interactions between them, but they don’t act on their lust until Levi blackmails Rachel into playing out his fantasy of what their life could have been like if he’d never gone to prison. Readers may find this to be a very uncomfortable underpinning for the characters’ relationship, especially given their asymmetrical power dynamic in bed. Rachel and Levi both learn and grow from first mimicking a romance and then building a real one, but they don’t overcome the sketchy nature of the blackmail, which makes the happy ending feel disappointingly unearned. The story is compelling despite its flaws, and Ashendon’s fans will find plenty to enjoy and have higher hopes for future installments, but readers new to the series should start elsewhere.
