Retaliation: An Alpha Billionaire Romance (Secrets & Lies Book 2) by [Landish, Lauren]

Retaliation: An Alpha Billionaire Romance

Lauren Landish (Author)

Retaliation is Andrea’s story. This is the next book in the series. Retaliation can be read as a standalone. Many of the characters from the previous story, Revenge, are in this book as well.

Andrea helped her half-brother Jackson and Katrina take down her father. They along with a few others were able to get Peter DeLaCoeur sent to prison. Peter is released on a technicality and is ready for retaliation. Everyone takes off or goes in different directions to hide from Peter. Andrea tries to move on with her life in New Orleans and finish school. Andrea has to be very careful about any contact that she has with the others, because Peter has sent men after her (as well as the others). Andrea discovers that she has a half-sister named Melissa. Melissa encouraged her adopted brother Carson to locate Andrea. When they meet, Carson and Andrea are very attracted to each other. Should they give in to their desire when Carson is the adopted brother of Andrea’s half-sister? Will they be able to resist the temptation? Carson and Andrea have very hot chemistry together. Carson feels very protective of Andrea. Carson has to decide if Andrea can handle his desires.

Carson and Andrea are great together. I love a dirty talking alpha male / hero. There are definitely some steamy scenes with Carson and Andrea. Yum! I like that characters from Revenge (Jackson, Katrina & Nathan) were in this story as well. I am excited for Nathan’s story. Retaliation has some violence, action, romance, a sexy hero and a smart feisty heroine. There was lots of suspense & many twist and turns. In other words, this book contains a generous amount of secrets and lies (like the title states), but don’t fear there is a happily ever after.
I was given this book in exchange for an unbiased review.
