This was a surprise for me. I really wasn't expecting to love Eric's story so much. We got a few scenes with him in previous Dirty Rich series but he didn't stand out to me at that time. However, I was completely enthralled. Eric is done with his father's family but it only took Harper to pull him back in. He has never stopped thinking about their time together 6 years ago. Even though he fears she is just like the rest of his family, he wants her. If Harper is in trouble, he will protect her but he fears she is lying to him. There was so much to uncover in this book. The family is full of secrets and lies and I enjoyed following along as Eric and Harper dug in to find the truth all the while Eric is trying to learn to trust Harper. Their attraction is explosive and I love them together. I got to the last page in the book and couldn't believe it was going to end there. I literally screamed no! I'm going to need that second book ASAP. Just as Harper and Eric start to solidify their relationship a bomb was dropped and then something else happened that I won't give away in my review but I need to know what happens next!!!

As usual, this author does not disappoint with her likeable, relatable characters and a plot that leaves you wanting to turn the page and find out what will happen next. I wouldn't have minded the characters being fleshed out a bit more, making the book a little deeper and longer, but all in all a captivating read.

Stunned into silence. Sometimes, there just aren't enough words to explain how a story makes you feel. Amazed, achy, frustrated, swoony, tense, enthralled. god, I could go on and on about Eric and Harper. These two met six years ago and had an instant rapport that ended with them in bed. But, Eric left, and neither spoke to the other again. Not until, Harper needs Eric's help. Even though they haven't seen each other in all that time, the attraction hasn't waned. If anything it's gotten stronger and neither can fight it. But, there's things that Harper isn't telling Eric, and he's keeping tight-lipped about something too. Then, there's Isaac, and Eric's father. Both men distrust Eric and will do anything to make him go away. Lies and secrets abound. Mysteries are placed in their way. A distraction or the truth hidden in numbers only Eric can decipher. They're getting close, in more ways than one when Isaac drops a bomb. Will Eric stick around or will he really leave Harper to face the wolves alone? Yes, this ended in a cliffhanger, and it was one heck of a fall. I'm still screaming!!!!

Addicting, Consuming, Palpable Allure! This embodies everything that makes Lisa Renee Jones the phenomenal writer, of romance, of which I just can’t get enough. So consumed, I could not put this down and read this in one sitting. Edgy, intense, provocative, passionate and full of intrigue, danger, secrets and deception. These characters are well developed and their sizzling attraction jumps off the page. Their push and pull of lust and need is constantly consuming the characters as well as the reader, taking us along for the ride, leaving you breathless and affected. You don’t want to miss this book! Anxiously awaiting what happens next! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This story is relentless and addictive. It captured and held my attention right from the beginning. Eric is the "bastard" son to the Kingston Motors empire. Something that his brother Isaac takes great delight in reminding him. As much as he wanted to be a part of this family, this time has passed. He now considers those who run Bennett Enterprises to be his family. He is a genius and self made millionaire. Harper is the step daughter of Eric's father. She sticks by Kingston Motors to honour her father's legacy, but she is not held in high regards! When Eric sets eyes on Harper at one of his father's party, there is an instant attraction from both parties. They have a brief encounter, but Eric doesn't want to have anything to do with the "enemy" and makes a sharp exit. Six years later, Harper goes to him for help. There is something fishy going on in Kingston Motors, but she isn't getting any answers from anyone. The sparks between them is ignited once again, and against his better judgement, Eric goes to investigate. With the help of the Walker brothers, he realises that there is more going on than meets the eyes! As he gets closer to Harper, he becomes more inclined to get to the bottom of the truth. He doesn't trust anyone else, but can he trust her? Eric is fair and honest to those he loves and trusts even though, his earlier days were riddled with pain, rejection and disrespect. Harper is too trusting and even when she knows that something is drastically wrong, she stays to protect her mother. This story has love, passion, endless twists, mysteries and secrets. It had me on tenterhooks on more than one occasion. When things appear to be falling into place, something else goes wrong and raises more questions. The worse one being at the end, when Harper's secret is let out of the bag. Oh! No, it doesn't stop there, there is another agonising twist of event. This cliffhanger only brings more questions. There is no indication as to the "who" or the "why", and the wait is on for the answers to these questions and so many more! It's a well constructed and complex story which sucked me in and has left me wanting for more. Nailbiting! I was kindly issued with an eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.

Absolutely loved this story. You could feel Eric and Harper’s connection from the very beginning and all the way through. The storyline pulls you in from the very start and keeps you on the edge of your seat til the end. The twists and secrets between not only Eric and Harper but also with the Kingston family are so well written. The two want to trust one another but there are things that have happened to each of them that cause them to question if the secrets they have will tear them apart. Lies they have been told by family they don’t trust. They both want to find away out and are trying to do it together. The chemistry between Eric and Harper is undeniable. Will the secrets pull them apart? Can they overcome the obstacles they face by the Kingston family? The ones caused by the secrets they keep? Will knowing Harper’s secret cause Eric to run? Will he see the truth in the secret Harper kept? Or will he only see what he wants to see? Can they get past all of it and find the HEA they deserve? Will the people who have caused all the pain to them be held accountable? We’ll find out. This is a captivating story I can not wait to find out what happens next in part two; The Princess. Book two of The Filthy Duet.
