Even at an early age, Reid Hunter's future was already planned out. Though he was groomed to become successor of the family business, he quickly discovered his destiny wasn't through his family's legacy, but to build his own empire. His plan: takeover Vegas, one building at a time. Known as a hard, no-nonsense man, inside the boardroom and out, Reid isn't prepared when he comes face to face with a woman from his past. The only one with the ability to make him question everything he stands for.
Raising a child is hard. Raising a child as a young, single mother is downright difficult. Yet Dani Whitley has managed to put herself through college, purchase her own home, and raise the unexpected, but greatly adored son she created while in college, after one night with a gorgeous stranger. Knowing nothing but his first name, Dani has managed to push all thought of Reid out of her mind until one day, nine years later, she is forced to face the man himself. Ruthless and callous, Reid Hunter is nothing like the young man she met at that music festival all those years ago. Yet Dani is still drawn to him, more than she was before.
Sin. Money. Success. Profits. That's the foundation of Las Vegas. But what happens when one day you realize that it's not enough? When the greatest thing you could profit is bigger and better than money: love.

I really enjoyed this book, Reid and Dani are great. Loved Ryan. Can't wait to read the next book in the series. mjw
Love this series-more please.
Loved, loved, loved this book!!! I was drawn in from the beginning, with an awesome back story that had me dying to know more! Dani is an awesome heroine, one who has a good head on her shoulders and has a lot more patience than I do. Reid is quickly climbing his way up my BBF list, even though he didn’t need to have a reality check or two thrown at him. It is one of my favorite tropes, and the author nailed it. This is my first read by Lacey Black, and she has sucked me in to this series and has me wanting to go back and read the first book, while impatiently waiting for the next to release. This book is definitely a must read!! (Note-it is a standalone)
Profited is the second book in the Bound Together series by Lacey Black. I always know that Lacey will take me on a fantastic journey with her words. There is always the perfect blend of humor, suspense, lust, foreplay and love. We met Reid in Submerged and I knew he had a good story. He's a hard a, no nonsense, successful business man. But he wasn't always that way. One night, nine years ago, he decided he needed to let go and just be for one night. One night before he had to take over his father's business. That's the night he met Dani. He saw her and he knew he wanted her. He thought things could be different. That he may be able to love and have a different life, but she was gone in the morning. He never saw her again. Until nine years later when she ends up in his office with news that's going to change his life. He has a son, Ryan. Dani never thought she would have a connection with a stranger, but she's never forgotten Reid. She only ever knew his first name, so she wasn't able to find him. As it turns out, he's been living in the same city. Even after all these years, she's still attracted to him, but when he hears her news, he's anything but friendly. Reid doesn't take the news well, but after time he realizes he wants Dani and Ryan in his life. He wants the chance to be the father that his own father never was. From the first time he meets Ryan, he loves him. He also can't stop thinking about Dani. But he just signed a deal that's going to change all their lives. Whatever happens with Dani, Reid will never walk away from Ryan. Will Reid listen to his heart for once or lose the only woman he's ever loved? Can Dani forgive the lies and trust Reid? I loved this couple! They are both smart, sexy and their chemistry is off the charts! There will be no one else in your life, sweetheart. I’ll be there. If anyone is going to warm your bed or keep you up all night, it’s going to be me. That is another promise,” I tell her, leaning forward and giving her a direct look to drive my point home. “Stop sexually assaulting me with your eyes or I’m never going to make it through this afternoon without tasting you,” he whispers against my ear, his breath tickling the shell of my ear.
What if the one that got away suddenly reappeared? Reid Hunter is a self-made man. His company is successful and still climbing. Everything he had planned for his life is falling into place. He always gets what he wants when he wants it. He never lacks for companionship though he doesn't do relationships past his friends and his sister. Dani Whitley loves her life. She is constantly reminded of that one special night years ago but doesn't allow it to keep her rooted in the past. She has the support of her sister and her dad and very fulfilling life. Reid was introduced in the first book, Submerged and I am so happy we get his story. I liked the characters in this story and felt they were well written. The story has a steady pace and is very captivating. I have read other stories by this author and loved them all. This story is a little different that her Rivers Edge series though no less intriguing. I am looking forward to reading more by her. This is the 2nd book in the series and can be read without reading the other but really why would you want to?
For Reid Hunter responsibility is a way of life. Ever the perfect child he attended all the right schools, followed all the family rules and lived his life knowing he was a product of money, power and a symbol of the family business. The one time he breaks the rules, he ends up with a broken heart and a mystery on his hands. Dani Whitley may not have been born with a silver spoon in her month but she knows there is something better in the cards for her. Hard work has gained her a chance at a better life until a night of pleasure throws all her plans off course and leaves behind more than just memories. I received an ARC of Profited in exchange for an honest review. It was hard not to see where this story was going from the moment Reid and Dani met. The chemistry emitted by this couple scorched through the page and had a lasting effect on the dynamic of the novel. Lacey Black knows how to grab a readers attention. Dani was everything I would expect for a guy like Reid. She was not expecting to be handed anything and when met with roadblocks, she didn't yield but plowed through every single one. She knew her worth. Great role model for females. She owned her mistakes and moved forward.
