I married a douchebag. It’s my own fault, really. 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 to obtain his
grandfathers business, and I was the poor victim in his path. I thought
we had something real, I believed it was special until the truth reared
its ugly head.
I never meant anything to Marcus. Not a damned thing.
Five years on and my life has been a struggle. Left with nothing, I’ve
had to work myself into the ground to clean up my debts and take care of
my sick mother, as well as trying to divorce a man that refuses contact
Five years is a lot of time to plot the perfect revenge.
What my dear husband didn’t count on, is that fact that I was smarter
than I looked. After all, what married couple doesn’t take out a life
insurance policy? If he dies. I get five million dollars.
Of course, Marcus doesn’t know about it.
One drunken night just after I
left made sure of that.
My mother is unwell, she can’t pay for treatment. And I’m a bitter
woman. I’ve been the joke of Marcus Tandem for five years while I’ve
formed the perfect plan. Now it’s my turn.
I have to kill him.
Oh yes, Marcus will pay for what he did.
I made a vow before God, that I would be by his side ‘Til death do we
I plan to keep that vow.

“But I didn’t take that.”
“No, you didn’t,” I agree. A fact that I’m painfully aware of.

I see the vein throb at the base of his throat.
“Good girl,” he admonishes.

All I’ve ever wanted was to be loved, but if this is what true love is…I’m not so sure I want it anymore. It also makes me wonder if any of my memories of our once happy marriage are even real. Maybe I just conjured up the fairy tale in my head because I wanted…no…needed it so much. Who the hell knows?

Abby’s review 4 stars
I have been looking forward to this like crazy! Mister Black was all kinds of yummy and I just couldn’t wait to get my greedy reader hands on this!
What is the business, Black and Red?
I’ll tell you, it’s all kinds of sexy and surprising. There is a whole wave of mystery going on. It leaves you wondering are there any coincidences. Do the two’s past have more connections? What will happen in the next book?
Don’t you love it when you have no idea what is going to happen next in a series? Sure I mean we know one thing, but the rest leaves you like hmmm what…how?
Mister Black and Scarlet Red weave a tale of utter sexiness, but this is more than that. Red is a mystery writer and I think that P.T. Michelle does a fantastic job of creating the mystery in the story. There is a place where Red says that she writes mystery with the romance being a sub plot and I think Michelle writes romance with Mystery being the sub plot.
Totally enjoy this and I can’t wait for the next one.
Kristine’s review 4 stars
After reading Mister Black, I was very excited to get my needy little hands on this one. So this story had no problem taking off in the heart wrenching department …. Oh boy…I knew I was in for it with this one. This was a little different from Mister Black the story to read before this one, which intrigued me even more. Being that these are the first books I’ve read so far from P.T. Michelle, I liked the way she got my undying attention from the get go. And not only being a lover of hot sex and romance, I also love mysteries too, so I was even more excited to have a twist of that in this story too!
We get more into the pasts of Sabastian and Talia. These two had some dark and messed up pasts. These pasts have a lot to do with the people that they grown to become. They haven’t seen each other in years. A lot has happened. But all this time that has passed, they never forgot about each other. Talia’s aunt talks her into going on a getaway and what a getaway this turns out to be! Wait until you read all that happens. People are not who they seem to be! I had my Detective switch on high the whole time. Asking my kindle all kinds of questions like it would answer me back! I really enjoyed this story and give it a 4 stars. There was a point that I was so desperate for answers I was getting a little antsy and I swear my kindle was shaking a bit from fear of being thrown across the room….then it all hit me like a tidal wave. I’m still drying off! Looking forward to reading more from Sabastian and Talia!

DAWNS 5 star Review
If I close my eyes, maybe she’ll disappear.
“That was amazing. So good, Cane.”
The woman nestled against me, her hand draping across my body. She stroked my skin, the intimacy of the action curling my stomach.
I switched on the bedside lamp, letting my eyes adjust to the bright light. Glancing at the clock, I pushed her hand away.
It’s not too late. She can still go home.
Sitting up, I swung my legs over the side of the bed; my body groaned in response. I stretched my arms overhead in an attempt to work some life back into my exhausted muscles.
This girl was a decent choice for a last minute decision. Memories of her contorted in a variety of wicked ways, screaming my name, made my dick harden again.
“Do you want me to get us something to eat?” she asked.
Her nails grazed down my back and I moved out of her reach. Her touch, like her voice, was more annoying than I remembered it being a few hours earlier.
That’s because you just dumped a load.
I twisted around. Her blonde hair was spread across my pillows, black makeup smeared across her face. A part of me wanted to tell her she looked like hell, but a bigger part of me didn’t care enough to point it out. I just needed her gone.
She rolled onto her back, cheap perfume wafting through the air. She pulled the sheets tight around her body.
I’m going to have to do laundry. Hell, I’ll probably just have to burn the sheets to get rid of that smell.
“I was thinking I would grab us some hamburgers. I could pick up some things for breakfast while I’m out.”
I cringed at the implications saturating her voice. “You’re going to need to tone that shit down.”
“What are you talking about?”
“Look, I have things to do tonight.” Her face was familiar but her name—not so much.
“Oh, that’s fine. I can just wait here while you do what you need to do.” She flashed me her biggest smile and settled back into the sheets, looking way too comfortable in my bed.
“No. You’re going to need to get up, get dressed, and go home.” I massaged my temples with my fingertips, a migraine inching its way into my skull.
For fuck’s sake! Why isn’t this ever as easy as they make it out to be? Maybe I should get them to sign some shit, a ‘This is a Fuck and Only a Fuck’ disclaimer or something.
“I really have no plans for tomorrow, Cane.” She licked her lips, still swollen from moments before.
“We discussed this. We fuck. You leave. You know this.”
She had the nerve to look hurt.
“I didn’t think you were going to say that once we were done.”
“It was amazing. It is always amazing with me.” I flashed her a grin and literally watched her swoon.
That never gets old.
“Look, I don’t do this ‘sex and a sandwich’ thing, but that is not a newsflash.”
“Why does it feel like we’ve been here before?” Frustration took over and I took a deep breath, trying to keep myself calm. All I needed was a hot little body to dump my stress into for a little while and I had made no illusions otherwise. She agreed to this before she followed me home.
Why does it have to be complicated now? I ran my fingers through my short blond hair, scrubbing my scalp in annoyance.
“When I was here a few months ago, we had lunch, too. Remember? We sat out on the patio.”
Remember her face. Do not triple dip this one.
“You don’t understand how this works.” I glanced at her reclining against my pillows and fought hard to not sound as brusque as I felt. “I have a bunch of shit to do. You really need to go.”
She sighed dramatically as she got up and found her jeans on the floor. I watched her ass jiggle as she pulled them on slowly, undoubtedly for my benefit.
I had to restrain myself from grabbing her and fucking her one more time, just for good measure.
That is only going to make getting her out of here even harder and she simply isn’t good enough to waste any more time on.
Instead, I sat and enjoyed the show. She turned to face me as she pulled her shirt over her head, her eyes never leaving mine. She tucked her bra in her purse.
With a final glance over her shoulder, presumably to give me time to change my mind, she was gone.
And I was alone again—just the way I liked it.

“She sat beside me on
the bus – and she changed my whole life.”
and absurdly handsome – Spanish ex-football
player Mateo Casalles seemed like he had it all. A high-society wife, an
adorable little girl, and flashy apartments in Madrid and Barcelona only
sweetened the deal. But there was more to Mateo than met the eye – a life of
uncertainty and regret that colored his black and white world.
That was until Vera
Miles came into his life like a shooting star. Tattooed, wild and young, Vera
seemed like Mateo’s polar opposite at first. But you can’t choose who you fall
in love with and the two lost
souls did everything they could to be together, all while suffering the grave
Now with Mateo
divorced and living in Madrid with Vera, there is a whole new set of challenges
and setbacks facing the couple and rocking the foundation of their star-crossed
them, the brighter the star, the faster they burn.
“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.”
I turn in my chair and give Vera a curious look. Yet another English saying that I don’t know. “I’m afraid I don’t understand.”
She gives me a soft but tired smile and sits down on the arm rest. I immediately wrap my arm around her waist and pull her down into my lap, where she comes to a rest with a giggle, her hair obscuring the impish smile on her face. No matter where she is, I can never stop touching her and now more than ever I need her to relax, to feel safe, to know I’m going to get us out of this.
“Explain,” I demand. “Or I will punish you with kisses.”
She raises her brow. “Followed by punishment by penis?”
I shrug. “That can be arranged. Now, tell me my Estrella.”
She sighs and buries her lips into my neck. I can’t help the small moan that escapes from me, nor my hardness building beneath her plump, round ass. I close my eyes and fight the urge to pick her up and take her to the bedroom, the only other way I know how to make her feel safe and sated, the only way I know how to escape.
“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,” she says against my throat, “is a saying. I don’t know where it’s from but it means, well, nothing is scarier than a pissed off bitch.” She pauses, sucking in her breath and I know she fears she’s said the wrong thing. “Sorry,” she quickly adds and I feel her body tense up beneath my fingers. “I didn’t mean that Isabel is a bitch.”
She is still so skittish over her words, the way she blurts things out, but it’s one of the reasons why I love her. I cup the back of her head with my hand and let the softness of her hair sink over me. “I know you didn’t,” I assure her. “And, well, she is being a bitch.”
“Can you blame her though?” she asks, her voice rising a pitch and when she pulls away from me, her eyes are wet. It breaks my heart. I’m getting tired of my heart breaking and I know that this isn’t going to change anytime soon. Every day there is another weight on us, another crack appears.
“No,” I tell her honestly. “I cannot blame her.”
A silence lapses over us, heavy like a wool cloak. It does this sometimes. What we’ve done, it coats us.
Finally she clears her throat. “She’s going to hurt for a long time,” she says. “She’s going to be angry. This isn’t going away. I thought everything was behind us now, that she’d move on. You’ve been divorced for a year, if she’s still this mad a year out…”
“She is mad because I am going back to Atletico,” I tell her. “She is mad because of the paparazzi, the way they are hounding us again. She is mad because she feels she is being made to look like a fool. If I had just stayed with my head down, she wouldn’t be doing this.”
“But you can’t live your life in fear, Mateo,” she tells me.
I smile at her and brush her sunset hair from her face. “And neither can you.”
She settles back against my body, sinks, conforms, melds. She is second skin. She is a part of myself I can’t bear to separate from. I pray I never have to. I pray we can survive whatever is coming our way.
And I can feel it coming, that tension, that storm rolling in the weeks and days.
I pick her up in my arms and for all her pillowy curves, she weighs nothing more than a feather. I take her down the hall to the bedroom, throw her on the bed. She glows in the afternoon sun that streams in through our window and it isn’t long before we are both naked and I am climbing over her, pinning her arms above her head and drinking in her body like the most beautiful, decadent wine.
I will devour her until all of this is gone.
I will consume her until we are all that’s left.
I push inside her and let my hunger take over.
