I had one goal—take down the man responsible for my parents’ deaths.
Until I locked eyes with a stranger across the courtroom.
Notorious billionaire. Rumored criminal.
And the most beautiful man I’ve ever seen.
Once I leave this courtroom, I hope to never see him again.
But then he hires me to be his lawyer. And I’m forced deeper into his world.
Ignites a passion I can’t ignore.
The closer I get to him, the more secrets unravel.
Is he my past?
Or my downfall?
Every aspect of Tobias and Skye’s relationship is fated. There’s a synchronicity to them finding one another that transcends even their lifelong goals. They’re so taken with each other, that they’re willing to sacrifice aspects of their plans but their lives are intersected in ways they could never imagine. There’s just something magical about the way it all happens, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be simple. Skye sees Tobias as an obstacle at first but an irresistible one. She doesn’t want to want him but he’s too perfect to dismiss.
Tobias has spent his entire life plotting his exit from the business but he’s determined to get vengeance for his father before he leaves the life. Skye is a means to an end in his carefully crafted plan. Once he puts things in motions, she turns out to be more of a wild card than he anticipated but he’s increasingly drawn to this woman, despite the way her existence shakes his world.
There’s suspense from different angles, danger and threats but this is one steamy slow burn where nothing overshadows the romance. I love these characters and couldn’t get enough of their story. I received an ARC from Grey’s Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
