Filthy Deal by Mika Lane
A twisty, erotically charged and satisfying read
Nico and Rain’s story is one super hot read, with an action packed plot and two very likeable main characters. One heck of a dominant alpha-male, Nico is determined to protect his woman at all costs. Rain is also a strong character, I sometimes felt her choices were not thought through properly BUT given the situation (her sister missing and she is held captive) then I’m not sure I’d be any more rational either! Their chemistry is so sizzling hot I’m surprised my kindle didn’t melt, and I loved that Rain was so confident in her own sexuality.
As the blurb says, this is an over-the-top romance, not in a ridiculous “roll-your-eyes” way, but in a low angst, fun to read way. Whilst Filthy Deal contains some darker themes, including sex-trafficking and murder, we don’t witness any of it in intense detail and the events happen to secondary characters. It isn’t darkly gritty like some mafia stories, it isn’t full of emotional turmoil like many a romantic suspense, it’s a wonderfully written piece of escapism when you just want to enjoy a hot read about a sexy couple. It’s a classy, well written erotic romance that takes the time to also have a good plot.
Whilst I love me a dark, difficult, full-of-feels read I also enjoy something lighter, something less taxing on my emotions and psyche. This book (in fact this whole series) is perfect for those times and I’m happy to recommend it to anyone who wants a quick(ish) hot, steamy but still well written read.
A Las Vegas Mafia Romance
Let’s make a deal…
She saw something she should not have. That happens when you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time. And when you meet the wrong man—me.
Her sister’s gone now, and her own life is in danger.
Not my problem I say…
But she was so… different.
So I made a deal to help.
And my deal was just as filthy as you’d think.
This hot, over-the-top romance includes sexy mafia hitmen with a penchant for pursuing and protecting the women who give them a run for their money. If you love outrageously naughty stories as a way to indulge your not-so-secret bad girl side, this is for you.
