My Review:

This is another brilliant millionaire romance from a highly talented author, Sarah Ballance. Her stories (or all that I’ve read, so far!) are always delightful to escape into, with brilliant characters, an intriguing plot and enough twists to keep you enthralled together with a style which keeps you turning pages – and this is no exception!

Kennedy Price wants to get her sister and nephew the support they deserve from the child’s absentee father. She’s using unconventional tactics to achieve this, endeavouring to obtain hair samples for a paternity test by getting up close to the millionaire she believes is the man in question, Jagger Hamilton. Little did she consider there would be mutual attraction between them – or that he might come to her rescue! Get ready for deals being sought, blackmail used, red hot action and their parent/child experiences making relationships difficult for both of them. Can they learn to trust each other with their hearts? Will business get in the way? Will time enable their attraction grown into love?

This is a roller coaster story, action packed with lots of contrasts throughout it – the expectations and lifestyles of the main characters are significantly different, the Grand Atlantis hotel is an up market, sleek, establishment, contrasting dramatically with the shabby Lady Luck which Jagger is trying to purchase. I really enjoyed how the characters mature and grow as they get to know each other and interact – and the ending is simply superb!

I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys escaping into a well written, delectable contemporary romance with plenty of angst and turmoil along the way.

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read this in exchange for my honest review.


Wealth has a price. Everyone wants something from you. For one woman, that something was my DNA. One minute, she was kissing me like we were going to strip it down and go at it. And the next, she was ripping out my hair for a paternity test—and threatening to torpedo my latest deal. I don’t play these kind of games. And that damnably sexy woman with the alluring eyes and mistaken agenda is about to learn that the hard way…

Millionaire scion Jagger Hamilton didn’t father Kennedy Price’s nephew. That doesn’t mean he can’t use the situation to his advantage. She wants him to take a paternity test. He wants her in his bed.

He shouldn’t.

She’s blackmailing him, and she’s playing dirty. He could try to use the famous Hamilton charm to turn her into a powerful ally… But she makes him feel… Way. Too. Much.

Kennedy Price isn’t asking much. Just for the powerful, sinfully hot, and notorious playboy to be a decent human being. But he’s used to using that filthy, sensual mouth for getting what he wants.

And he wants her.

She’s determined not to fall for him. But there’s no avoiding his charisma, or his bed, where she threatens to lose more than the standoff between them. She just might lose her heart.
