Series: Retribution Book #2
Stand Alone Title: yes
Author: Katie Reus
Blurb: They’re enemies.
Alena Brennan’s relationship with Andre Makarov is… complicated. The casino magnate was a means to an end. Nothing more. At least that was what she tried to tell herself. Then she fell for him. Hard. But he kicked her out of his life when he discovered her lies.
Now she’s pregnant with his baby.
Andre understands why Alena wanted revenge. His father took everything from her, leaving her an orphan at a young age. But Andre still had to cut her out of his life. Now that his father is dead, she’s safe. He should just move on. But when he learns she’s carrying his child, all pretense is gone—he’ll protect Alena whether she likes it or not. She may kick up a fuss, but Andre knows the gorgeous model with a party-girl rep attracts attention…including the dangerous sort.
Thoughts: The chemistry is certainly there between these two characters, and Andre knows he still wants Alena….unfortunately, he doesn’t know whether everything was an act between them and he has his pride after all. He can even understand Alena’s actions, he’s just not sure what was real and what was a game. Fortunately for him, he’s in the right place at the right time, and discovers Alena left their relationship with more than either of them bargained for! And that gives him the opening he’s looking for to find his way back to Alena.
While it is a short novella title, Katie Reus never short changes her fans – short or not, yet get a full story, you get the full emotions, and you always get a great book worth reading. This one is no exception.
