I made a mistake.

At sixteen years old I fell for the wrong man.

Callum Torrio.

Ruthless billionaire. Dangerous villain. My best friend’s father.

At twenty one I gave up hope that he would ever notice me.

He’s twenty years older than me, and an arms dealer for the mob.

The smart choice would be to forget he ever existed.

But that’s not possible.

His icy blue gaze, sculpted physique, and huge rough hands play a vivid part in my dreams.

Then one night everything changes

Every fantasy I ever had he brings to life.

Dominant and possessive he praises and worships me.

He makes me feel like a woman when all my life I’ve felt sheltered and controlled.

But Callum has dark secrets, and a past that refuses to let go.

I knew he was a bad man but I never would have anticipated this…

Bianca has been denying her feelings for her best friend’s father for a while but that is proving to be more difficult when circumstances unfold, and she finds herself living with him. The situation only becomes more tense when she witnesses him in a personal moment it changes everything.

Callum is a dark and dangerous man who is used to getting what he wants. He has been trying to distance himself from Bianca and the way she makes him feel but when she sees him in a private moment it becomes a gamechanger and once lines are crossed there is no going back.

Surprises you don’t see coming, intrigue that keeps you on edge and hot chemistry escalate into a cliff hanger that leaves you wanting more of this captivating couple.

About JL Beck:

J.L. Beck writes steamy romance that’s unapologetic.

Her heroes are alphas who take what they want, and are willing to do anything for the woman they love.

She loves writing about darkness, passion, suspense, and of course steam.

Leaving her readers gasping, and asking what the hell just happened is only one of her many tricks.

Her books range from grey, too dark but always end with a happily ever after.

Inside the pages of her books you’ll always find one of your favorite tropes.

She started her writing career in the summer of 2014 and hasn’t stopped since. She lives in Wisconsin and is a mom to two, a wife, and likes to act as a literary agent part time.
