Hats off to author, Xavier Neal, of this dark romance with the spicy heroine Chantal Brooks, head accountant of Bennett Enterprises. Who storms into Benicio Bennett’s life like a Cat. Five hurricane and holds his interest until he is changing from his norm. Chantal is unlike the women that have come and gone in his life. Benicio must know more about Chantal and must have her in his life at all costs. Chantal, with her female superpower of writing everything in code, is a boss. A multi-millionaire who has legal and illegal ties in the world has met his match and is determined to make her his queen. Someone is out to make sure that does not happen; when the threats against Chantal happen, Benicio and his second Miko tight security, will that be enough. This dark romance is one for dark romance history books, and it’s not a typically carbon copy of anything that may have preceded its release. I enjoyed reading this story and look forward to reading the second book in the duet.
I received an advance copy of this book for a voluntary unbiased review.
