Book Review 👩🏻‍💻


Description:

After a childhood spent on the streets, ruthless billionaire Nik Valenti has had his share of dealing with crooks. He thought that was behind him. Until the woman he’s been casually dating turns out to be the biggest con artist of them all. Now, with pride, money, and his company’s survival at stake, he won’t rest until she’s experienced his own brand of justice. 

Sara Turner knows she’s no angel, but a few deliberate omissions…well, compared to the rest of her family, that’s choir girl behavior. But now the one man whose heart she’d hoped to steal is accusing her of embezzling from his company. Worse, he wants answers. And he’s come up with a foolproof way to ensure he gets them. One Sara must accept if she doesn’t want to end up in jail. 

Nik might be trying to save his company, but he has a tough time ignoring the way Sara makes him burn. The passion between them is all-consuming, and each time he peels away a layer, he discovers there’s more to her than first meets the eye, but he can’t give in to his need. Nik will put everything on the line to find the truth…except his heart. 

 

 

Review:

Billionaire Blackmail by Alison Aimes centers round both Nik and Sara, who come from difficult backgrounds.  Both were neglected as kids, and because of that, they became stronger characters….. Nik became a ruthless business man, but Sara, she got to continually bail her brother out of bad situation after situation. 

We join the story AFTER their break-up (which was a twist on the usual read) Sara needs to find money quickly to bail her brother out of a really bad deal, and possibly put him into a rehabilitation centre. 

Nik wants Sara, but not for what we think! Oh no, he wants her to pay after stealing from him……

The story picks up with Nik accusing Sara of embezzling a lot of money from him. And after almost kidnapping her from the hospital (she was visiting her beaten up brother) he offers her a deal …… 

Misunderstandings and distrust at first, each waiting for the hammer to fall. Old wounds keep them wary of each other, and their childhoods keep them at arms length. Each trying to get rid of their past, and move forward. 

Nik wants Sara, but he isn’t willing to risk his heart, but as the story progresses, he doesn’t really have much choice, she wiggles under his skin and wedged herself into his heart, but trust is a big thing to Nik, and he can’t let go, he is waiting to prove to himself, that Sara was just another con artist. 

Sara, fell in love with Nik, but she was always being put on hold, her insecurities wouldn’t let her truly open up to Nik. She works to let him all the way in, but too many people had let her down. 

Yes, we all know they will get it together …..  But boy did they leave it close.

It was really well written, and the author took us in a few different directions.  The characters were well rounded, and you felt sorry for both Nik and Sara. And the others characters in the book weren’t neglected. You felt disgust at Sara’s brother. And sad that both the main characters had such a poor start in life. No child should ever be or feel neglected. 

It was a great read, and I’d recommend you download and chill out 😉
