On the flap: Between two brothers...
Xander Santiago spent years living it up as a billionaire playboy. Never given a chance to lead his family business in the boardroom, he became a Master in the bedroom instead. His older brother inherited the company and worked tirelessly to make it an empire. But while the cutthroat corporate espionage took its toll on Javier, nothing was as devastating as the seemingly senseless murder of his wife. It propelled him into a year of punishing rage and guilt...until Xander came to his rescue.
Eager to rejuvenate Javier’s life, Xander shanghais him to Louisiana where they meet the beautiful London McLane. After surviving a decade of tragedy and struggle, London is determined to make a fresh start—and these sexy billionaire brothers are more than willing to help. In every way. And London is stunned to find herself open to every heated suggestion...and desperately hoping that her love will heal them.
And inescapable danger...
But a killer with a hidden motive is watching, on a single-minded mission to destroy everything the Santiago brothers hold dear, especially London. And as fear and desire collide, every passionate beat of her heart could be her last.
Xander Santiago finally gets his story. He’s the billionaire playboy who has used his money and connections to help the guys out in the past. He’s also spent the last year trying to help out his older brother, Javier.
Javi has been drinking his way through most of the last year instead of really mourning the death of his wife. All the while his position as CEO of SI Industries, the family owned corporation, is quickly going downward as he lacks focus and they are not able to deliver on new products for the government.
London, the cousin of Alyssa, has recently moved to Lafayette to try to start her life at the age of 25. She had a terrible accident 10 years prior which has stunted her evolution into an adult. She has many scars both actually and metaphorically.
Xander fears the only way to save his brother is to drug him and drag him to Lafayette to detox and really start to recover. While this rips their relationship further apart, he’s willing to do whatever it takes. To blow off some steam in his normal way, he heads over to Sexy Sirens and is immediately infatuated with the atypical type of voluptuous girl on the stage. After initially wooing London, she runs off and becomes the administrative assistant to Javier. Finally when both men realized they want London and she wants both of them, the healing can begin...Oh and the super sizzling sex. This book is heavy on the physical and the emotional aspects of the relationship. It’s one of the more raw stories by Shayla Black.
