When the going gets tough, Beth Rammada has no choice but to get the hell out of Chicago. Her family is sinking fast and she’s at risk of being used as bait to hurt her father.
But living on the streets of New York is no walk in the park, until that is, she’s taken under the rather dubious wing of Roper Hermanus. He’s rough and hard and likes it kinky, or so he says. But should she stick around and help her sexy new friend turn a few tricks? Or should she be running for the hills?
As their journey reveals secrets, Beth falls for the man who’s shown her a new side to her erotic self. It seems their demons are compatible—the underworld, extortion and blackmail is their currency.
That is, until the biggest secret of all has to be announced to their families. Will Beth’s life ever be the same again? Does she want it to be? And will her mobster lover be there when she needs him most?
My Review – Hot and down and dirty read! ~ 5 stars
I LOVED this fast paced and oh so sexy erotic romantic suspense from Lily Harlem. It’s perfect if you fancy a quick, hot and down and dirty read! Mobster Roper is all alpha male and likes it hot, hard and rough, but has a heart of gold when he takes pity on Beth, a young homeless woman in New York and offers her a meal and a room for the night.
Roper is willing to take all Beth offers him (what man could refuse?) in what starts off as a no strings attached arrangement. Neither are looking for a permanent relationship. For her part, Beth is profoundly grateful for his gifts of a hot meal, a warm bed and a roof over her head, after months of being destitute. The hot sex is a bonus she soon becomes addicted to. Roper is all man and introduces her to some mad, bad and distinctly addictive type of loving she can’t get enough of. So what if he is a bad man!
Their no strings arrangement soon develops into something deeper. However, things soon come to a head as unbeknown to Roper Beth is on the run from a complicated and dangerous past. Beth has welcomed the anonymity of New York as she has needed to lie low for the benefit of preserving her own life and that of her family. This is all about to change…
Beth discovers that Roper’s past and present is not as far removed from her own. Just how will Roper react when he finds out the truth about Beth and what she represents? Will he protect her or sacrifice her?
I enjoyed the premise of the plot and Lily Harlem uses it to create a hero and heroine who find that they have lots more in common than they first envisaged. The lovemaking scene between them are scorching as Roper introduces Beth to his love of kink and hot, dirty and raw sex!
Recommended for fans of erotic romance who love tales on the wild side.
