    I was reluctant to read this because1It's part of a series called the 21st Century Gentleman's Club which sounds like a run down strip club2The opening takes place in an opulent Rococo building of said Gentleman's Club with a conversation with a billionaire from another story in the series The hero is a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks who has made good He has been waging a war on the owner of the Gentleman's club and now he wants to meet the object of his revenge face to face 3The hero breaks into the heroine's private uarters and is violently apprehended by her guardsI'm not a fan of court intrigue criminal heroes or violence And yet I kept reading and I'm so glad I did Another reviewer said that this author always brings her characters to such darkness that you wonder if they will ever find light I can tell you that she does but it is a journey with many twists and turns and you have pay attention In this review I'm not going to spoil any of the plot points The author is very careful about what she reveals and when she reveals it There are revelations up to the very last pageInstead I'll try to explain what this about so you can decide if this story is for you And then I'll just gush about the writing and the characterization for a bitTrope hero wants revenge on the heroine's father a reclusive Greek Mafia type guy who is such a megalomaniac that he calls himself Zeus The hero has a very good reason for wanting revenge you don't realize the full extent of the damage ol' Zeus did until the very endHero has a two part planPart one he'll ruin Zeus's club and his businesses and then throw it into his face He's on his way to completing part one with the exception of the face to face meetingPart two he'll marry the mousy daughter of the majority shareholder of the family jewelry company that his father lost to Zeus years ago Then he'll give the company back to his elderly grandfather After the hero is captured the heroine decides he must be the one messing with her business She is now Zeus since her father died four years before The reader knows this in chapter one so I'm not giving anything away She accepts the hero's bet because she wants to understand what's going on The bet She will spend two weeks with the hero and if he can get her into his bed she must introduce him to Zeus The heroine is wildly attracted to him but she is emotionally frozen and doesn't think she'll fall for his charm The hero thinks she is a trust fund poopsie who is playing at being in charge at Daddy's business She will enjoy two weeks of sex and then will forget all about him after she introduces him to her father He tells himself she won't be affected by his revenge scenario And how wrong they both areThe hero has hidden depths he's not just a product of the mean streets He had a life before Zeus happened and his memories are heart tugging There is a reuisite makeover scene of the heroine shopping with the hero but there's a twist with the waiting hero and a young boy and a soccer ball That little throwaway scene looks backwards and forwards into the hero's life but you don't realize it until the end of the storyThe heroine is pure of heart She is not a physical virgin but she is pure in her motives even while she is keeping secrets from the hero and the public Her hidden strengths are evident from the beginning and the hero uickly readjusts him opinion of her Her strengths are not of the feisty variety she is honest with herself and faces facts no matter how hard to handleWhen the eventual betrayal of the hero comes to light breaking her heart and his she takes it on the chin and then pulls herself together and rights the wrongs of the past without expecting a happy ending for herself She is no doormat but pure of heart and generous of heart Yes Okay the writingThis is a story that you have to be in the mood for It's complicated You have to pay attention It is thoughtfully crafted The tropes and conventions of the HP universe are all there shopping trip I mentioned before but they are used in new waysThe settings directly reflect on the plot and the characterizationThe Hh meet in Zanzibar in the Rococo Gentleman's club Here it's literal masks and complications and artificiality Then the heroine takes the hero to an ice hotel in Northern Europe This is her personality cold pure air nature at its most elemental It is a place of life and death fire and ice the mysterious Northern Lights etc The story then shifts to Barcelona the hero's choice full of light warmth color dancing food ease and soccer The betrayal is in Paris The Eiffel tower outside their window is the spike through both their heartsThe resolution takes place in a boardroom with the heroine in charge and still in power The hero has not ruined her She is the proverbial PhoenixThe epilogue takes place a year later and is the most disappointing part of this story We're subjected to the other couples from the series and I didn't care about them after the fever dream that was the Hh's story I wish it had been a stand alone so they could have had their own epilogueI hope I've piued your interest This is a story that made me pay attention and intrigued me from start to finish The Hh are wonderful characters and belong together I'm sure I'll enjoy it even when I read it again

    It wasn't bad it just wasn't my cuppa I did find it ironic that the H was all set to marry this girl and is this hot shot business guy and then did not find out the particulars of who owned the majority shares of the company That is a newbie mistake so it kinda ruined the H's Business Guru persona But hey it is HPlandia and that is how they roll Plenty of angst a little too much Ds in the bedroom for me but I could see why they went there The writing is really good but mostly I was like uit being all angsty and just get on with things already I don't think I truly have an angsty angst soul probably because I hang around with a bunch of cats and they are the ultimate pragmatists

    Gonna try to keep these reviews as short and sweet as can be and just be based on the notes I kept I probably have others thoughts on this book but have not included them all here being I have five reviews tonight to do So let's get started Plot spoilers in this review Read at your own risk Finally finished The 21st Century Gentleman's Club series I read the first two in this series and loved them and I wondered if this was going to be as good and if I was going to love it as much and let me tell you I did It was just a fantastic ending to a fantastic series and I am so glad that I read every single one of them and see all these dark brood men get their happily ever after It was such a great seriesNow speaking of this book specifically I will say that this had a interesting setup for the story The hero Nicandro Santos vowed revenge on Zeus the person who ran the gentleman's club Vitus because of what Zeus did to his family and held him responsible for their deaths So he spent years bidding his time until he could finally strike and pounce on his target he had done some stuff to knock Zeus off his pedestal like knock the worth of his stocks down and just run his businesses to the ground and was about to make the final blow Now he was finally ready to make him move since he finally came to learn who Zeus was and have face to face meeting with Zeus see no one knew what Zeus looked like or who he was and was just the elusive owner of Vitus Zeus was a very secretive man and vowed his privacy Unbeknownst to Nic Zeus that was responsible for his parent's death was in fact dead and had been dead for two years Now Zeus was his daughter Olympia who secretly took over the club as well as his businesses with only a select few knowing the fact that know that she is in fact Zeus The reason she had to pretend that Zeus was still alive and kicking was because she believed the members of the club wouldn't accept her because she was a woman and it was written in their statue that when the first Zeus died then his son would take over the business and run it but the original Zeus never had a son only Olympia to carry on his businesses and his beloved club and Olympia vowed to do all that Sounds like an intriguing plot already right? And it definitely hooked me and I knew that I was going on a great ride and I couldn't wait to see it all played outThe first meeting between Olympia and Nic started off with a bang with Nic sneaking in her room in order to get audience with Zeus not knowing that Olympia was in fact Zeus The anticipation and the heat started from that point on and it was really a nice was to start off the meeting between the two and I liked that uniuenessOf coarse Nic was caught and he was then later thrown down in the dungeon by Olympia's bodyguards who vowed to protect her and her secret They wanted to do some damage to him but Olympia refused and decided to meet with Nic herself and spark flew when they came face to face He asked to meet with Zeus without giving his reason why while Olympia kept her cards close to the chest and didn't reveal a thingThe attraction and heat between them was already scorching by this point but now it was blazing especially when the bet came into play Nic bet Olympia that in two weeks time that she would sleep with him and when she did then she would give word to Zeus so that Nic and Zeus could have a face to face meeting with him and if Nic lost then he would go on his merry way and never meet with Zeus ever and he would be forced out of the club with membership revoked and would never bother Zeus again Olympia agreed believing she would be able to resist Nic and never have to reveal her secret to him while Nic was confident that he could win her over to his side and kill two birds with one stone by sating his lust for Olympia and getting his meeting with Zeus Let the battle of wills beginAnd battle of wills it was I loved it and just loved seeing it all play out with the back and forth between them while the air thickened with sexual tension every time they were near one another and it was palatable Oh boy it was palatable I had fan myself a couple times Olympia did everything in her power to deny that she was attracted to him but in her hearts of hearts she knew but she knew she had to resist him not only because she didn't want to reveal her secret to him but also she didn't want to risk her own heart in the process and just remain the ice ueen that she had always beenPlus Olympia was dealing with issues from her own past of not being good enough and doing everything in her power to carry on her father's wishes for his business and be the good daughter and not the piece of trash that her mother was plus a druggie and an abusive lover who was intent on using Olympia for his own sick needs and later on content on leaving her at her father's doorstep A father she had never even met before or knew she had So she had a tough life and learned to keep a wall up and refuse to let anyone in And she definitely didn't want to let Nick in even though she was dealing with her attraction for him and it was not easyAnd Nic vowed to break her down and used every trick in the book to seduce her but nothing worked and he decided to use a different approach and act like a caring guy who cared about her as a person At first it may have been a ruse but then very uickly it became clear that he did genuinely care for herCase and point and one of my favorite parts of the book was when they were in Norway in the icy cold in order to escape her attraction to him she went out with a guide to explore the icy depths and see what needed to be developed in the area but a storm came upon her and trapped her and left her injured when she fell off the snowmobile Nic knew something was wrong and was worried about her not just because if lost the bet he would never met Zeus like he wanted but he was concerned for her So he went out in search for her and found her saving her life She was on death's door and basically freezing to death Doctors were trying to heal her but she refused needles being taken back to her childhood when her mother did drugs and also during that time she called for her mother Noticing her distress Nic stripped down to his underwear and slipped under the covers with Olympia and cuddled her close in order to get her warm so she wouldn't die It was a sweet moment and it showed Nic's caring side and showed there was than met the eye with him And it was just so affectionate with her and it nothing to do with the bet and at getting wellOf coarse the next morning when she was well again heat between the two ensued and a bit of making out did occur And despite it being only kissing and touching it was a hot scene and I could feel Olympia's resolve wavering a bit being that she never experienced this pleasurable feeling before and she wanted of it and of Nic But I could see her determination to keep her secret so she pushed Nic away and though she was grateful that he save her though she felt it was just because of the bet and not about her she still wanted to keep her distance from himSo the anticipation was just ramping up and it kept on going and going The fight that Olympia had with herself over her attraction to Nic and just letting go was interesting to see and enjoyable to watch She changed before my eyes the and time she spent with Nic and became less of the ice ueen and of a flesh and blood woman I loved seeing that transformation in her and how Nic was responsible for it and was the reason that she was letting go and letting him and into her heartFinally she decided to go there with him and what I loved most about the scene was before they did they did and they were hotly kissing Nic called a halt for a moment and told her to forget the bet and what was going on between them had nothing to do with the bet that he wanted her and it had nothing to do with the bet It was her I just thought that showed how much he came to care for Olympia and how much he wanted her just for herself and not just to win so he could meet Zeus He didn't want the bet to stand between them when they did finally make love and just wanted it to be about them and I really liked that Victoria Parker did that because it made me like Nic even as a character and just showed his integrity and really what a guy he was and how his priorities changed since meeting Olympia It was just a really profound moment in my view and I was so glad Victoria Parker included that moment in there and just made me love the story even Any way their chemistry was off the charts as you can imagine and their first time together was just explosive with lots of heat between them It was hot scene but it underlined than hot passion but some deep emotions going on because the scene was very emotional and very eye opening especially to Olympia who finally opened herself to a man and never expected this kind of passion I just thought it was a great scene that finally came to fruition after all that nice build up between the pair throughout the book and they finally gave into their passions It was just so goodOf coarse it didn't end there with misunderstanding ensuing and truths being revealed shocking both of them out of their little passion bubble and knocking them back a bit with Olympia getting knocked back the most and her heart bleeding making her revert back to the ice ueen It ripped my heart out to see Olympia in that much pain and closing herself off after she came so far I felt so bad for her especially when she learned the truth about her father and what Nic planned to do to her father aka Zeus in the endBut despite the pain she did become stronger thanks to Nic who told her to stand up for herself and claim what was rightly hers and not hide by the name of Zeus And know that she was good enough just the way she was I loved how he made her stronger and fight and it was really clear that he loved and cared about her and wanted her in his life Just the ending was definitely a sucker punch from the time he learned the truth about who Zeus really was and onwards But of coarse they got their happy endingI really just loved every second of the book I loved both characters I loved the angst I loved the sexual tension I loved the whole bet angle which made for even interesting story as well as seeing that struggle in Olympia in denying her attraction to him I loved her journey as a character and just her self discovery I loved Nic and how he came to realize what was really important in life and that it wasn't revenge I loved the emotion behind this book It was so raw and deep made me feel ravaged right along with the characters It was just so well written and a perfect series ender that complement the first two in this series It was perfect and I can't find a single fault with it It was just so so so good I wish all romance novels were like this Bravo Victoria Parker Bravo Keep up the good work and keep ripping out my heart and putting it back together like you do with your characters Loved the rawness of itHighly recommend this one

    For over a decade Nicardro Santos heir to the legendary diamond legacy has lived with one unrelenting purpose to infiltrate the ultra prestigious Virtus gentlemen's club and bring it and it's leader Zues downBut what he doesn't know is that Olympia Merisi the daughter of his enemy is now the one in charge Olympia has her own reasons for wanting to keep Nicandro close and she will stop at nothing to protect what belongs to her The only uestion that remains at the end of the day is what will happen when the battle lines of hate and anger start to blur and dangerous and sensual ones start to emerge?I have been a fan of this author's books since the first time I picked up her debut she has a way of luring you into a story that seems as dark as its characters and then slowly and so beautifully dragging you back to the lightAnd each time I step into the darkness I cannot help but wonder if am going emerge on the other side as the same person I was before I read the book because with this author you know there is a guaranteed happy ending in the works but her writing is so full of life and so unpredictable I love her for the unpredictable parts as a predictable book is never any fun that I am never sure if I will at the end of the read still feel that surge of joy and excitement when reading the back cover It's almost and yes I know this sounds completely off for a Harleuin read but it always seems as if she is going to kill of the main characters when I least expect it and then what? Thankfully it is ever the case but it is in this uniue captivating keep my attention all the way through till the end magical way of writing that the true genius of this author shines through time after timeIn this her latest read she has done it all again and ten times better I was completely addicted to the book from the first page I could not put it down for fear am going to miss something and yes I realize it's a book and not a tv show and thus one is able to put down and come back later yet I simply could not bring myself to do itAnd the darkness was once again there in full force and my oh my was it simply delicious I was not nuts about Nicandro having thoughts and such a drive to take revenge because let's face it seeking revenge never makes you a nice person it makes you cold dark and totally not likable but what I did love is how the author changed his outlook on life once he encounters Olympia It was like reading about a lonely creature being dragged into the harsh reality of life in order to learn what truly matters in lifeOlympia was really awesome awesome heroine I adored this woman for being so strong and fighting for what is hers of course hiding behind a mask of identity showed her in the light of weak yet she is so determined in making it all work that her weakness takes a back seat and than once the author completely let me forget about it all together and then suddenly gently reminded me really brilliant work Victoria From this read am taking away a message of revenge is a very bad thing to go after in life but sometimes it is the very thing needed to bring you back to reality The trick is how you react when the chance for the return comes to be able to see it for what it is a second chance at a life of happiness And most importantly hiding behind facade pretending to be someone you are not is never the answer yes some people will not understand or even want you around but it's simply because they cannot handle the real you Stand strong and be you it's what will ultimately let you win any battle in lifeI highly recommend this read for all fans of brilliant blow your mind beautiful stunning tear my heart to shreds and make it whole again with magical romance reads Victoria Parker has once again shown why she's a leading lady in each and every aspect of writing the perfect so close to reality read it will leave you in tears and begging to be dragged back for 55 star review Revenge is what he seeks what he finds will bring his soul back to life

    Rating 45 starsI have really liked Victoria Parker's other harleuin books so when I saw that this month she had another release I jumped to buy it This story is about Nicandro Santos Nic and Olympia Merisi Pia Nic wants to destroy Pia's father's life and business because of what he did to destroy his parents and the Santos empire So for the last 10 years or so Nic changed his name climbed the ladder and become a billionaire with the sole focus of destroying Zeus starting with the gentlemens club Nic meets Pia there we see an obvious attraction there and I really enjoyed some of thir banter Pia unlike other harleuin heroines is not some virginal heroine and a princess who doesnt understand the real world She is very much a business women confident and successful though she chooses to hide her identity in the business world Nic and Pia make a bet after which we see new sides to both Pia and Nic who are trying hard not to let their guard down and show any weakness to the other while falling in love Which leads to the past coming back to haunting them Minor uibbles view spoilerAfter Pia leaves and then Nic returns to her I was slightly annoyed that he leaves and agrees to marry another women for the company when while knowing he loved Pia hide spoiler
