My father is dead.
And I’m about to make a deal with the devil to keep my family safe and get the revenge my father deserves.

Wren’s the only woman I’ve ever loved, but that doesn’t mean we’re right for each other. Don’t get me wrong… the sex was always crazy hot. That’s never been the problem.  But Wren and me? We’re explosive together, all sorts of wrong for each other—and sooner or later, someone’s going to get burned. 

I walked away from Wren once, and broke her heart. She’s never going to forgive me or trust me again—but her mob boss father doesn't care. He's forcing me to marry her, and if I want to find out who’s threatening my family, this is my only option. As for Wren—she’s going to be pissed when she sees me, let alone when she finds out we’re getting hitched. Ask me if I care. 

The deal is done. One way or another, I'm making her my wife.

*** This is an adult romance with adult language and steamy sex scenes.  This story explores darker situations that may not be to everyone's tastes and some readers might find disturbing.  Though this story has a Happily Ever After for the couple and can be read as a stand alone, there are small plot points that will continue in upcoming books.  ***

one of the best thing books

This story was too repetitive and stretched way too long. Main characters were annoying, and the author took on a subject matter that was way out of her depth, not giving it the delicacy that it requires. It started out strong, but it felt like a rough draft that didn’t get any of the attention it needed. I wouldn’t waste the space on your nook.

The story was quick and full of emotion. A lot of sex scenes and some bdsm not too much though.

GJRA. I have read books by this writer for years, but she now only writes long explicit sex scenes and the f bomb. In almost every paragraph, plus using g d a lot, I skipped over one half of the book because they were just having sex, wanted to know how it ended is the only reason I read maybe 50 pages of this 111 page story. I cuss but not every other word. WILL NOT READ ANY MORE BY HER. GJRA

Review Well this is certainly a bit different from the last series I read from Cali. Wren has moved away from home to try and forget all the bad stuff that happened, I don't think she knew her father has been having her watched though maybe if he had done that sooner the bad stuff wouldn't have happened. Ash had broken off with her thinking maybe someone else could help her and she would be happier, all it did was send her back to the one causing the trouble. Both are still in love with each other and now being blackmailed to get married by her father. The twists in this were not as surprising as I expected them to be, but I still enjoyed the story. There is abusive content and talk of rape, plus the BDSM element to Wren and Ash's relationship though I feel she needed that because of everything else she had been through and Ash was just trying to give her the release she needed. Lots of sexual content which is graphic, I suppose some might feel there was to much of this and maybe there could have been a bit more plot. But I felt that to some extent the sexual side of the story was probably more of the focus because they just couldn't keep their hands off each other, even when Wren was running away. I still found I lost myself in the reading which is good, maybe not my favourite of Cali's books but still worth my 5 stars and I am reading on through the series.

I enjoyed the story between Ash and Wren. The twists in the story were good and I found myself wanting to find out more. I wouldn't mind reading more about them either. Slight spoiler alert....I do wish more was covered why they originally broke up. Yes, you find out why but I wish there was a little more detail about it.

Excellent book!! It's sensual, sexy, exciting, and gripping. Wren and Ash are explosive and he walked away from her once. Can she trust him not to do it again??? Ash knows that one of them is going to be hurt but he has no choice. His family's safety is on the line. He will marry Wren and make her mobster father happy. Wren tries to fight it but her father and her feelings for Ash are too strong. This story is packed with a lot of emotion and will have you turning page after page. I definitely recommend it!
