Filthy Rich by Virna DePaul
This book involves the intriguing romance of Cara Michal and Braden Duke. Honestly, I did not even read what the book was about as the fine man on the cover had me hook, line, and sinker.
Cara Michal works as a analyst for Dubois & Mellan (D&M) on Wall Street and is a workaholic. Because of her father’s past, Cara is taking care of her mom and elder brother, who has treatment-resistant schizophrenia, and is living in an assisted living facility paid by Cara.
Cara is persuaded by her best friend to go to a company party to let lose for a little while. Cara goes with an obtuse co-worker and to clear her head, wanders upstairs to escape the party. Ultimately, Cara falls asleep on a stranger’s coach, only to be woken up by a man, who has her body, aching, begging, and screaming for in all the right places. Especially, after a hot, steamy passionate kiss.
Upon leaving the party, Cara is captured on camera as being romantically involved with the owner of the home, Branden Duke.
It is then revealed that Branden Duke is the new owner of D&M and Cara’s new boss.
Once Cara finds this out, she does everything in her power to keep her attraction to her boss in check, but Cara can only do so much as Branden is also equally attracted to Cara. Both of them try to keep it professional.
Branden Duke, is a self-made rich, sexy, single, business man with a reputation to go with it. But, he also has a very caring heart as he takes care of his sisters, as his mother has a few issues. He also has some secrets of his own that affect his relationship with Cara and his newly acquired business. Branden brings on some new employees to D&M to aid in the transition. A new office manager, Mike Gaunt and Deena Raj, which Cara is not very found of.
Finally, things between Branden and Cara finally go from hot to DAMN HOT! The sex scenes between Branden and Cara are very very impassioned.
Just when you think this is all about sex, someone is out to get Branden and Cara.
This mystery person will not stop until Branden and/or Cara are dead. This extra twist in the book just added to the storyline, and made the book even better.
Will Branden and Cara live to figure out whose out to get them before it is to late? Is Branden and/or Cara’s past part of this mystery? Will their romance even survive? You’ll have to read the book to find out.
I give this book 3.5 journals. See rating system here.
