Release Date: November 25, 2014
They say there's a fine line between love and hate.
I married a douchebag.
I didn't know it at the time.
He came in like a handsome stranger and blew me off my feet.
I fell madly in love, like the naive girl I am.
Then he left me high and dry.
Turns out, I was nothing more than a business plan for billionaire playboy, Marcus Tandem.
He needed to be married in order to obtain his grandfathers business, and I was the poor victim in his path.
I believed in what we had, until the truth reared its ugly head.
I never meant anything to Marcus. Not a damned thing.
With my world spinning on its axis, the girl I once was has long since died.
Instead he left me as this empty, emotionless shell.
I may have made a vow before God to love and cherish him ‘Til Death do we part, but it’s time for me to give back to Marcus, exactly what he gave me.
He has to pay.
And pay he will.

“They say your body tells you when something becomes dangerous – that it hums with awareness. They would be right. I felt it; I felt the shift, and I knew the moment I entered Marcus’s world that he was going to take my soul and likely crush it.”
Katia is a bombshell. But more than that, she’s just a girl. One who works hard, takes care of her mother, and cares deeply for her friends. One would say she is the total package…but Katia is lonely.
Because of her life circumstances, she doesn’t have time for love, or anything closely resembling as such. She seems content, albeit a little tired, but wound just a little too tight. Letting loose, even for one night would do wonders for her…and her libido.
“He sweeps in, gets what he wants and has no problem doing it. He’s smooth, he’s sexy and he knows what to say. He’s the true meaning of the word player. And this right here is how Marcus Tandem entered my world.”
Marcus is on the hunt. After the passing of his grandfather and the stipulations of his will being passed on to Marcus in regards to the company he has run for the last decade, there is only one thing Marcus can do.
Find a wife.
But not just any woman will do. No. She has to be willing, she has to come freely (and free), and she has to stay, with him, together for two years. Now, how in the hell is he going to pull that off? And in twelve months?
Well, never underestimate a determined man…and Marcus is definitely that. What he didn’t count on was Katia.
She’s not like any other woman he’s ever met…and their connection in the bedroom is instant. If he can just keep his cool, make her fall in love with him and get through the next two years, he’s golden.
“My plan will work; it will work because I’m sure she’d do anything she could to get the lifestyle required to help her mother. Including falling for, and marrying, someone who supports her. Call me selfish, go ahead. It’s not selfish; it’s smart. A win-win, really.”
But who is really winning here? A one-sided marriage is no marriage at all…
“Marcus,” I breathe. “You’re destroying me. You’re taking everything I am and twisting it. You’re…ruining me.” “I know, precious,” he whispers.”
Life starts throwing curve balls…and Marcus finds that he and Katia are more connected than he could have ever thought…and that maybe, just maybe she is growing on him.
It was supposed to be easy. Two years, that’s it. Now, Katia has somehow embedded herself under his skin and he’s fighting for more than just keeping his company.
There are feelings. Unwanted feelings. And things are about to get a whole lot more complicated…
“There’s a fine line between love and hate. There is.”
Wow. That’s really all I can say. This is one of those books I would’ve been happy to just keep reading and reading. Bella Jewel has done a wonderful job of immersing the reader into a story that has so many different layers, by the time you are finished you don’t know what to be more upset or excited about! Bringing in Jokers Wrath was an absolute bonus…introducing Katia’s father, epic. And Marcus…mmmhmmm. That man is just perfection. I cannot wait to see how this ends and if he really and truly gets the girl. Talk about backwards, but I loved every second!
