RAW HEAT by Cherrie Lynn
Publication Date: September 5th, 2017
Youngest Larson brother Damien has the luck of the devil. Fast talking and faster thinking, he owns a successful nightclub in Houston and runs an illegal poker room upstairs. After a troubled childhood, now nothing is out of Damien’s reach—except his accountant, Emma Haskell.
Emma has always been drawn to Damien’s dark intensity and the gleam in his eyes that promises more than she can possibly handle. But when her brother’s gambling threatens to destroy her family, Damien makes her an offer she’d be crazy to accept—but can’t refuse: her brother’s debts will be forgiven, and Emma belongs to him for thirty days.
In Damien’s world, he shows his angelic bookkeeper what it’s like to live with the devil. But Emma brings out a side in Damien he thought didn’t exist. Will the flames of lust scorch them both, or will this beauty tame the beast and give him something to fight for?
Raw Heat scorches with emotional intensity and smoldering passion that will leave readers spellbound!
I think this was my favorite book in the Larson Brothers series. Damien was…. wow. I need a moment to collect myself here. Ever since I first met Damien in book one I always knew there was something about this man that would bring me to my knees, and I was right. Sweet baby Jesus was I right.
To say the Larson brothers didn’t have an easy up bringing would be putting it mildly. But they had each other and I truly think that made all the different in each of their lives. Each of them handled their past in their own way, but Damien became dark, brooding and mysterious as he grew older. Don’t get me wrong, all three brother are hot and sinful as Belgian chocolate, but Damien’s wild side in the bedroom… *fans self* have mercy! However, even with his God like body, good looks, and his power and wealth he is still looking for more out of life.
And then there is Emma. Sweet, caring, feisty Emma the accountant. Her brother has a bad habit for spending money he does not have. He can’t get enough of the gambling life and he can dug himself a nice hole of 30k in no time. Emma wants Damien to stop letting him into the players room at his club, but Damien has a more sinister idea and he makes Emma an offer she can’t refuse, and just saying she be a dummy to refuse (you’ll see what I mean).
This story had everything I love, hot damaged hero, strong beautiful women, amazing connection, and let’s not forget the sex holy moly get your spare panties out and a tall glass of ice water ready. I recommend this book to anyone who’s ever wanted to play with the big dogs at the grown up table.
