I’m dead to the world, except for HIM.

Looking for a big break in my journalism career, I thought I found it when I met Brandon Thomas, a seedy accountant who works for every crooked politician, plus the cartel.

The minute he caught me stealing computer files with the cartel by his side, the jig was up. The cartel wanted me dead.

Brandon wanted me dead, but then he had a better idea – one that wouldn’t end my life but change it forever. I would be granted the opportunity to live – but only as his slave.

Now I’m only his toy. An inanimate object to torture and play with when he feels like doing so. But what’s worst than being his toy? His plaything? Liking it.

And just as things between us begins to progress, the game changes and we learn that the cartel is coming to kill both of us.

Read this dark billionaire romantic suspense to find out who makes it out alive.


Review by Twinsie Angie

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

This was the first full book I have read by this author.  I was actually pretty intrigued at this mafia/cartel/dark story.  I mean it hits all the right dark elements right!!

Chloe was a pretty entitled girl, but she also had to deal with her not so awesome or involved parents.  Her dad is a senator with political aspirations.  So Chloe is only good when she fits his agenda.  Her mother is a wet mop who is a trophy wife is the best guess.

Chloe just wants to be a journalist but her dad has a tantrum and takes her schooling away from her ya know because she was partying at a club….like a normal college kid……DUH DAD!  So she is none to thrilled to be ordered to attend a political party to put on the “show” for him.  She puts on the happy face and decides she will find something to write a story about at the party she is being forced to attend…not a good idea girl!!

Now here is where we meet Brandon.  He is a super slick accountant …and Chloe’s dads accountant at that.  He also is a bit on the corrupt side annnnd did I mention he works with the mafia??  Brandon sees Chloe and is not thrilled when she rebuffs him.  But soon enough Chloe sets her sights on Brandon and all hell breaks loose.  When Chloe gets busted stealing valuable information EVERYTHING changes for her and Brandon.

The dark elements were pretty amazing in that Chloe can either choose to die or stay as Brandon’s slave for LIFE.  The two find an easy companionship with Brandon helping Chloe realize her true nature.

The plot twist at the end, I was cheering alot and I sure would love more from the couple.

Derek Masters grew up in Overland Park, Kansas and now lives in the immediate Kansas City, Missouri area.

When he’s not writing, you can typically find him working out in the gym, watching the game at one of his favorite sports bars, or hanging out at the park with his dog, Bully.
