My Review:  I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review 
Satyanna Darling was a orphan brought up by a man who used her to help him scam people and to help him with many illegal things. When she escapes him and ends up in jail she reaches out to the man she spent one weekend with.
Leonardo Duarte had one weekend with Satyanna and when she disappeared so something important to him. When he gets a call year later he goes to her in prison.
When she shares a secret with him he decides to use her now to get is property back. He didn’t plan on her strength. Together they fight for whats right and they fight to not fall in love.
This is a fast read and the story will keep you satisfied for hours.

 

Excerpt:  Silly small talk was harmless, right? Maybe the guy didn’t even speak English, which would bring things to a stop quickly and spare her the embarrassment. Before she thought things through, she found herself walking toward him, even though her knees weakened a bit more with each step.

What the hell? She had dated before and even had a boyfriend or two while studying at the New York City Photography Institute. This…by the time she made it to his side, she still had no fucking idea what she was going to say. He held a tumbler that was half filled with ice and some sort of alcoholic drink. Up close, he was bigger and taller, even though she stretched to her full five feet nine inches. His profile was intense, his eyes looking above even though there was nothing but a cloudless sky sprinkled with stars. The music from the dance floor faded into the background, and she inhaled. The man was completely content with being on his own, and this fascinated her, even though she couldn’t quite understand the sentiment—not after a life of being on her own for the most part.

She felt an unfamiliar throbbing sensation in her heart; it surged all the way down between her legs. “What are you supposed to be?” she asked him. He turned to look at her, and she noticed that his eyes were a gorgeous hazel—cinnamon with a hint of gold.

“Excuse me?” he asked without a smile and lifted his glass before taking a swig.

“Your costume,” she said, pointing at him. She lifted her hand to keep him from speaking. “No. Don’t say it. Let me guess. A mysterious guest. Perhaps a party crasher who stole some rich guy’s black tie.”

He chuckled, and the sound was masculine, hearty, and infectious. The planes of his face softened a bit, and she almost reached for his drink to have a shot, because she needed something to settle her nerves. “Go on,” he said, with a heavily accented voice.

“You used someone’s suite, maybe even a deluxe one. But you were afraid they’d return, which is why you didn’t have time to shave.” She pointed at his face. “Your hair is messy. You’re worried about something. Perhaps someone stood you up.”

He offered her a half smile. “Who would that person be?”

She leaned in. “A woman. A woman who likes to keep you on your toes.”

“Maybe she will meet me with our new passports before we fly off somewhere,” he said, his eyes watching her as if she would escape from him otherwise.

“In that case, I better introduce myself before she gets here. Satyanna Darling.” She offered him her hand, but in typical Brazilian style he gave her a kiss on both cheeks. The kiss was nothing more than it should have been, but, oh, it unleashed a part of her that she had no idea had been suppressed until then.
