by: B.L. Wilde and Jo Matthews
Genre: Erotica
Release date:  December 5, 2014

Ryan Lawson has almost everything he wants. A Capo to the Valenti mob family, the world is at his fingertips and the ladies all drop their panties at his signature smirk. All but one, anyway, and she happens to be the only one he wants.

On the run from a horrible past, Trixie finds herself accepting a job as an exotic dancer in a club run by the mob. Left without a choice, she begins to date the Boss’ son while lusting after someone else.

Everything changes when Ryan is offered a chance to win a weekend with the woman he desires. All he has to do is roll the dice. The rest is up to fate.

What will happen when their worlds collide? Will a mutual attraction turn into something more? Or will the dangers they face be enough to keep them apart for good?

Yes, Yes, YES! That pretty much sums up everything about this first installment of the new series from B.L. Wilde and Jo Matthews.  Hot, steamy, conflicting emotions, mysterious, heartbreaking, frightening…you name it, it’s here and in such a short span (which incidentally is why I gave it a 4 star rating.  We needed more!).  Trixie is a complex character who finds herself running away from her past only to fall right smack dab in the middle of a worse situation.  Ryan is in over his head with his desire for his boss’ son’s girlfriend.  When these two end up together for a single weekend of passion, after Ryan won a bet, the sparks ignite into flames.

I was honored to be a pre-reader for these two talented ladies.  If the rest of the series is as promising as this little teaser, than we’re in for a great ride (see what I did there…ride! HAHA!).  If you haven’t read this book and are looking for something with a bit of heat and mystery, I’d highly recommend this novella.
