Brady Davis is as happy as he is charming. Usually. Unless he’s in the same room with the frustratingly gorgeous antidote to his cheer. Mia Kendrick is headstrong and determined. She’s done with men who stand in her way—even if he has arms like Thor and a smile that makes her dizzy. Whenever they’re together, sparks fly—both the bad and good kind.

When Mia returns home to take over management of Kendrick Place, Brady is worried her focus on big business could be the end of his tight-knit home and the family he’s created there. Mia may have the power to change everything, but Brady could have the power to change her mind…if he can get inside her heart.

Publisher’s Description:

Never fall in love at a masquerade…

Nondescript “good girl” Miss Camellia Grenville only ever opens her mouth when forced to sing at her family’s musicales. That is, until the night she infiltrates the ton’s most scandalous masquerade ball on behalf of her sister, and finds herself in the arms—and the bed—of the one man she’d sworn to hate.

Irresistibly arrogant and unapologetically sensuous, infamous rake Lord Wainwright always gets his way. When he accepts a wager to turn his rakish image respectable in just forty days, he never anticipates falling for an anonymous masked lover…or that discovering her identity would destroy them both.

My Thoughts:

Reviewed April 28, 2017

I loved this second book of the Rogues to Riches series. I read and reviewed Book #1 but was not as impressed with it as this second one of this new series.
I have read several Erica Ridley books in the past and will most likely continue to read others. She has the ability to make her readers laugh and to draw them in.
Although this book is part of a series each book can be read as a standalone title but from the description of the next book in this series it may be best if you have read this one beforehand.
I gave this book 4.75 of 5 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3.75 of 5 flames.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title from the publisher through NetGalley to read. This in no way affects my opinion of this title which  I have voluntarily reviewed.

Renzo + Lucia, #3

Publication Date: March 4, 2019

Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense,

Organized Crime. Erotic Romance


(Free with Kindle Unlimited)


How much is too much?

Five years—that was the deal. Renzo Zulla gave up five years of his life to repay a debt to an organization that only wanted to break him before they could make him. Their way, their rules. He doesn’t move without their okay, even if his latest job puts him right in front of her. But the five years are almost up, and he knows exactly where he’s going first.

Love doesn’t follow rules …

Heartbroken and alone—that’s how she survives. Lucia Marcello is alive, but a part of her still feels dead without him. She’s spent far too much time running away from her past and the pain she constantly holds tight because it’s easier than hating the people who caused it. But life has a way of bringing you back when your heart never will.

Love doesn’t fade …

But time means nothing, and forever might be only an illusion for them. Because where fate doesn’t step in, reality does. If hate is a game you play with your heart, and contempt is the game you play with your mind … where does that leave love?

Vendettas don’t care about love.

It’s in God’s hands now.

Note: CONTEMPT is the final book in a three-book Trilogy following the same couple.



“You got a job for me, or what?” Renzo asked.

Dare’s jaw muscles tightened, but he nodded. Probably happy that they were now onto an entirely different conversation. Nobody said dealing with Renzo when he was in one of his moods was particularly easy.

Even he knew that about himself.

“Folder on the desk—black strip across the front,” Dare murmured.

Ah, great.

A black strip on the folder meant the job came directly from M. It was the only way Dare chose to differentiate from the jobs he negotiated for Renzo, and the ones that came specifically from M for him to do.

Crossing the office, Renzo picked up the folder, and flipped it open. He found the picture of a tanned-skinned man with short, black cropped hair and brown eyes attached to a sheet of details with a simple paper clip. He gave the picture about five seconds of his attention before lifting it up to read the bit of details it covered.

Christian Savino.


Born: Sienna, Italy.

Known drug trafficker.

Renzo took in the rest of the details about the man before quickly closing the folder, and giving Dare his attention again. The man still hadn’t come further into his office, instead opting to stand in the doorway.

“So the job is what, kill him?”

Because the file didn’t say.

Dare shook his head. “M wants you to keep an eye on the man, apparently. He doesn’t come over to this side very often—most of his business stays on his side of the world, I suppose. Except, he’s here for a span of time. Could be a couple of weeks, could be a lot more. For whatever reason, your boss has reason to believe that while he’s here, he could cause trouble. So yes, keep an eye on him. Report back to me once a week, and I will relay whatever information you give to M. He will decide what to do from there.”

Renzo blinked.

Like a fucking idiot.

“You want me to babysit some fucking Italian because he came to America?”

All the skills Renzo had … the shit he could do, and they wanted him to babysit somebody?

“That’s a joke, right?” Renzo asked.

Dare glanced at the folder. “That’s a folder from M, Ren. Do you think that’s a joke?”

Jesus Christ.

“Fine, where is this … Savino now?”

“Apparently, California,” Dare replied, “but it’s possible he’s doing work across the states, too. You might have to follow him.”

Renzo heard a lot in Dare’s statement, but only one thing registered to him.



He knew better—he needed to stay away until the five-year term was up. The rebel in him was fucking dancing, though.

“Yeah, all right,” Renzo said. “Cali first, then.”
