A tabloid scandal unites a powerful mogul and a woman from the wrong side of the tracks in this tantalizing novel from the USA Today bestselling author of Bound Beneath His Pain and the Club Sin series.

The multimillionaire owner of a chain of successful Irish pubs, Gabe O’Keefe loves being in the spotlight almost as much as he loves women. But when all his secrets are exposed in a shameless tabloid, his glistening reputation takes a hit. What hurts most is learning who sold him out: sweet and sensual McKenna Archer, his own employee. Gabe thought he could trust her. But now he’s got bigger problems than keeping his hands off McKenna.

After putting a difficult past behind her, McKenna would never betray Gabe. But she knows someone who would: her brother, a compulsive gambler who owes money all over town. To make things right, McKenna will have to set aside her feelings for her boss. Easier said than done. Gabe oozes pure temptation. But when they team up, McKenna sees that he isn’t the manwhore she always thought. He’s strong. He’s real. And the heat between them is the only thing that makes sense anymore.

This is the 4th in the series and I have been looking forward to Gabe and McKenna's story. The beginning was interesting and I was really looking forward to where this was going to go and the tension that was created by the beginning of the story and the revelations that followed soon after.

But, then something happened and the characters in this fell a little flat to me, and they seemed to just accept easily the things that were happening. While this is not always a bad thing, and I do enjoy the romance novels that involve characters sliding into their relationship and staying there, for some reason this didn't totally work for Gabe and McKenna.

I am not saying that the book was bad, or that I didn't enjoy wasn't and I did...but I think I wanted more of the angst and the tension that was promised at the beginning.

It was nice to see the resolution of this, and the chance to see all of the other characters happy, and I did enjoy this overall.

I do recommend this title, especially if you have read the others.
