The Hero: Sinclair Sterling (a.k.a. Sin) – Filthy rich and determined to get Revenge for somet he and his six (Friends?) suffered when they were younger. They call it the incident and it changed them all. Now they are all wealthy and work together. At times it seems they are friends, but other times they describe themselves as enemies. Sin wants revenge agains the heroine’s father and the people he worked for at the time of the incident. So he has maneuvered her into a position where he can use her.
The heroine: Summer West – Trying to get her fledgling business off the ground and paying the bills which include medical bills for her sister who is sick, she isn’t in a position to refuse Sin even though her very nature has her balking at everything he does and says. He blackmails her and she has no choice but to help him by doing what he wants.
The Love Story: Sinclair bullies and blackmails Summer into becoming his fake bride to draw Summer’s father to him. The same father who left her and her sister to the foster care system after her mother died. For years Summer has assumed her father died. However when her father does appear, Sin seems to want to protect Summer more than use her.
I liked the fact that Sinclair is a dominant and cocky alpha male who does what it takes to get what he wants. However, I sometimes have trouble with dominant men who aren’t afraid to take what they want, but then take forever to do the deed. I’m not saying that things didn’t get steamy early on in the book because they did. However, I hate it when a guy is supposed to be so bad that he will dominantly take what he wants, but then he doesn’t follow all the way through. Sin follows through and then some. This book was Scorching.
The story also turned out to be much better than I originally thought. The “incident” was explained, at least from Sinclair’s experience. There are still six of his friends that went through something similar and I suspect we will find out what that was a book at a time. Next up is Saint and he is every bit as rich, powerful and handsome as Sin.
Apparently Sinclair and Saint are both “gazillionaires”, I always thought that was a made up word, but I was curious about how many billions made a gazillion so I Googled. It turns out it is actually a word in Webster’s Dictionary, but I think it was probably one of those made up slang words that became a word just because so many people used it, unlike million or billion which are actual numbers, gazillion just means a whole bunch. But still, I wouldn’t mind falling in love with a gazillionaire. Overall I really liked this book and my star rating is based on an average of my other ratings (above).
