The likes and dislikes:
~First...EEEP! It has been a long time since I got into a book the way I had with this one, with that said I would have liked a little diversity.
~I am not a fan of first person, but Cardiff makes it work without too much repetition between what is thought and what is said.
~Some crossovers had me doing double takes, but nothing big.
~I love the concept even when the end is something you see coming, the execution of this was unique and left me with 'Oh no, they didn't'.
~The build up of the intimacy is pretty close to perfect from the techinical and reader responsive perspectives and it leaves you craving more until the steamy scene hits you feeling...pretty damn good.
~Random note, but the names are unique (to me at least), which is awesome with the sexiness.
~The four days after conversation with Winnie, and then the Friday night call was contradicting, which felt like a little forced upon tension. It worked, but yeah kinda felt a little immature when regarding the world they're professions are in and on the other side I get it, but still...
~There was a certain point...*couch-cough* - 42% in my reader - ...when I totally lost it when the suspicions were confirmed and I'm not just talking about the steamy scene.
~I loved the book...like LOVED and Cardiff's voice is amazing, definitely an author I'm gonna start stalking!
Notes on characters:
Langley - Love her! She says and thinks as I do, which was nicely relatable.
Winnie - Awesome friend, love the ribbing between her and Langley. Kinda hoped she and Knox would get together, because seriously perfect stuff there!
Archer - I have to say it, I kept thinking of Archer from the animated adult series Archer, which worked and didn't work at times to show exactly how this Archer and that Archer are totally comparable. I loved him, he starts off as an...A...but he is really awesome and *wiet wiew*.
Knox - May I have him? Loved his interactions with Archer. Cool guy.
Getting the second book...no question about it, my next few days will be sleepless, due to reading. So do not disturb...
Archer Black has an agenda. As head of Black Investments, he's filthy rich, and his goal is to bring down Senator Thomas Wharton. For they have a blood debt they need to settle. Unfortunately, the best way to gain access to Senator Wharton is through his stepdaughter, Langley Mayer. When operatives started to track Langley's moves and bugged her place, after she found a list of women with prior dalliances with the senator. Except women on the list are turning up dead, and Langley may be next. Archer realized that he cannot go on with his plan. Archer has fallen for his mortal enemy's stepdaughter and needed to protect her from everyone, maybe even himself...
The final twist was pretty good, but it's probably telegraphed a long way (hint: title). Though I find the seduction slightly forced.
I'm definitely addicted to stepbrother romance, so that's initially what drew me in. But I was also intrigued by the premise that the heroine knew nothing about Archer and that he was going to use her to get revenge on his dad. Add in the fact that his dad is a prominent senator and planning to run for president and you have the makings for LOTS of drama!
The author pulled me right in from page one. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next.
Archer was a man with a plan, and he didn't care what he had to do to achieve his goals. Langley was just a tool to bring down his father. He didn't count on falling for her. I loved watching him fall. Langley confused him. Yes, he did his research and knew "everything" about her but he didn't know her or what her family was really like. So he was surprised to find that she wasn't the "loving daughter" that Senator Thomas Wharton spoke about in interviews. Senator Wharton wasn't her father, or even a father figure. He was simply a guy that married her mother. There was no happy family, not like Archer had been expecting.
Langley was very down to earth, I really liked her. She didn't enjoy the dog and pony show that went with her stepfather's career. She did her duty and played the loving daughter as needed just because she couldn't say no. At 25, she was struggling to build her own life, separate from that of her family. She didn't expect Archer...this rich, good looking guy who just showed up on day, showed interest and seemingly fell for her. I thought they had great chemistry and loved every moment of their relationship.
Along with Archer's plot for revenge, there's also a suspense plot to the book. I thought the author did a good job with this. It was woven into the revenge plot and both served as a device to push Archer and Langley together as well as something that initially they had to overcome. Plus, the intrigue going on gave Archer the smoking gun for his revenge to come to fruition.
Going back to the stepbrother thing for a moment, this book isn't all about "we're related by marriage! We shouldn't be together!"...If you didn't know about that connection from the blurb, you wouldn't really know that there was that marriage connection between Langley and Archer. It takes a while for the reader to find out that Archer is the son of Senator Wharton. So if that's holding you back from reading it, no worries. It's not a huge plot device. It does serve as a big reveal for Langley when she finds out the about Archer's plan but overall for the book, it wasn't a standard stepbrother romance.
Overall, this was an extremely enjoyable story. I was also intrigued by Archer's brother Knox and can't wait to read about him (yes, I'm assuming there will be a book since the series is titled "Black Brothers Series"). This was my first book by the author, but it definitely won't be my last!
