She sacrificed everything to keep him safe…
Five years ago, con artist Lisa Smith broke the first rule of hustling when she fell in love with—and married—her mark, billionaire Sawyer Hayes. The erotic nights spent acting out her darkest fantasies with her husband and Master were the happiest of her life. But when her ruthless father demanded she kill him and take his money, she had no choice but to disappear without a trace…or lose him forever.
He’ll risk everything to have her again…
Now Sawyer has found her, and he has an indecent proposal: submit to him for seven nights and he’ll grant her the divorce she desires. Forced to pretend she no longer loves him, each night spent in his arms is exquisite torture as they reignite their intense passion through role play and ménage. But when a deranged killer out for revenge targets Lisa, she must finally trust Sawyer with the secrets of her past…or neither of them will live to see the future.
Warning: Scenes depicting BDSM, fisting, MMFMM, consensual non-consent, and references to abuse
Lisa Smith has a secret. Five years ago she was forced to run a high-end con, hustle Sawyer. It included learning about BDSM and seducing her mark, into marriage. Along the way, she falls in love.
In order to save Sawyer's life, (her father wanted to kill Sawyer so she could inherit his money), she flees without a trace.
Five years later, Sawyer tracks her down, intent on learning why she broke his heart and ran. Striking up a deal, he coerces her into an agreement; spend the next seven nights with him and he’ll grant her a divorce.
This book was incredible. I love a bit of whodunit with my romance. The interactions between Lisa and Sawyer were realistic and hot with no difficulty following all the action. That said, it will keep you guessing till the end. The author takes a fresh approach to BDSM, making the scenes exciting and leaving you wanting more.
I would definitely read more by this author and look forward to future works.
