Refuse to compromise.
Hudson Winters is in control of every aspect of his world. From his earliest memories, he’s been driven to succeed. Starting from nothing, he built an empire based on opportunity and intimidation.

REVIEW BY VENTURE
Brie is excited. She left her family and her small home town for love. She can’t wait til she sees Hudson. He has been visiting & dating for a while when he asked her to come to New York. What she finds is that her Hudson isn’t the one that actually wined & dined her. She is humiliated & doesn’t know what to do.
Hudson is surprised when he gets a tongue lashing from a woman he never met. Finding out someone is using his identity to con women pisses him off. Finding out who did it is his priority. Yet he can’t forget her. He can’t forget her or his attraction to her.
I got this book to review. It seemed like a romance book. What it is, is a story of people & a woman who gives unconditionally. It isn’t a book I would normally read. Having said that the characters are lifelike & grab your attention. This book doesn’t just have sex scenes. It has very graphic sex scenes & isn’t for the faint at heart. Yet the storyline and the characters make this book not a raunchy sex book. It is about people; good and bad. The book kept my attention throughout & even though I normally wouldn’t like this story. I can’t help but admit the author is a genius. I give this book 4 books.
