Description from the publisher:
This has got to be one of the weirdest relationships on the books.

Deena Rae is a loner, a strong independent woman who needs nobody, with the possible exception of Mr. Fine Ass, with whom she’s begun a strange courtship. He’s certainly a nice diversion from her new job with Pierce Securities and her first solo gig with the company.

Slade is in debt to a man nobody wants to owe, his sperm donor just died, and somehow, Deena Rae knows the half-brother Slade’s never met. Slade can’t keep his eyes off his gorgeous bitch of a neighbor who keeps her drapes open, even when she’s “entertaining.” He’s told her, though, he’s a train wreck and they shouldn’t get involved.

Now Deena Rae is riding Slade’s train all the way to the end, whether she likes it or not. Slade is working for her mark, and her mark suddenly wants her dead.

And Slade’s the man who’s got to do it.


BOND is the sixth book in the Pierce Securities series.  Though each does stand on its own, it is much better to read all and in the order of release because of the recurring characters.

The first line of the blurb is “This has got to be one of the weirdest relationships on the books.”  Weird doesn’t even begin to describe it.  Not to worry!  I mean that in the absolute best way possible.  Deena Rae and Slade are both so dark and twisted and when they twist around one another the steam and the sparks are impenetrable and undeniable. 

Their relationship may seem weird, twisted, and probably doomed. … but sometimes it takes someone just as twisted as you to understand you.  Isn’t that what we’re all ultimately looking for in our other half?

At times, Slade came off as a little whipped by life – in the form of his five-foot-nothing-cougar-mamma – but, it is his mamma.  In my humble opinion, every man should be a mamma’s boy to some extent.  It shows they have a compassionate heart.  Slade is his mamma’s boy and Deena Rae’s perfect twisted man. … but, oh what a ride they take to find that out!

What can I say about Deena Rae.  She is a hellcat with a brilliant mind.  So, of course, I understand that part of her.  She lives life with two names, and please don’t shorten it to just the first.  Yep, I understand that one, too.  The rest was a great escape from my life to experience something completely different.

I highly recommend this story, this series, this author!
