Eighty seven billion dollars.
One dead New York business mogul.
No heirs.
No wives.
No relatives.
Eighty seven billion dollars.
Not hers yet.
He doesn’t deserve them.
He doesn’t know what to do with them.
She does.
She always has.
Eighty seven billion dollars.
He’s overwhelmed.
She’s prepared.
That will should have had her name.
Not his.
Eighty seven billion dollars.
His looks are a bonus.
Her looks are her weapon.
He’s fighting a losing battle against his heart.
He doesn’t know it yet.
Eighty seven billion dollars.
She gets everything she wants.
He’s what she wants.
Love has nothing to do with it.
To get to where you’re going, sometimes you need to step on a few people to get there.
Good thing her heels are sharp.

Obviously, this summary doesn't give away much. But I know K.K. and she made it very clear that this book was going to be darker and way different from her previous books. She was definitely not lying. 

Ye who be looking for likable characters may not want to enter here. Cedar Reynolds takes no bull because it's the only way for her to get what she wants - and she will do whatever it takes to get what she wants. She's a skilled actress for New York society, and its newest member, Ellis Carrington. Cedar is ruthless and charming and demanding and has no issue owning that. Ellis, on the other hand, is completely naive to what's really going on. He's not stupid, but he's lacking in confidence and spine, especially when compared to Cedar. Having chapters from alternating view points of Cedar and Ellis magnifies just how different they are.and

Even with all this, the plot definitely shocked me. It covers a lot of ground in a relatively short book and I was continuously astounded about how things were coming along, but not in the way y'all probably think. I just can't be too specific because I don't want to spoil anything. I did, however, spend the last 10% of the book with my eyes bulging out at the story because OH MY DAMN. I didn't see any of THAT coming in exactly the way you'd expect. (Is this making any sense? I JUST DON'T WANT TO SPOIL YOU.)

But it was also kind of a fun read, in a way. It was just this fascinating thriller with these intriguing characters and it goes fast. Pretty perfect for a summer read, I think! And you can check it out if you enter to win the contest below. Good luck!
