A Jade’s Trick (Lilly Black’s Jaded Series Book 1)
When the rich, playboy Dom meets his match in the sassy ice queen, his world will never be the same.
A lifetime of harboring secrets and building his empire have shaped strikingly handsome billionaire, Cain Ballantyne, into a man who gets everything he wants all of the time while years of hiding the effects of past sexual abuse and pretending to be someone she is not have left Evan Lucien (female) frigid and hardwired to expect the worst in others. When she meets Cain one night in the bar where she works, she recognizes him for exactly what he is – a rich playboy just out for a good time…but this playboy comes with much darker desires than she could have imagined.
Determined to prove her assessment wrong, Cain spares no resource in seducing her, reminding her at every turn that he is the one who will succeed where all others have failed, and when Evan surrenders to him, she finds everything she ever wanted. In her, Cain finds everything he never knew he needed, including her appetite for both ends of the whip.
On the arm of San Diego’s most eligible bachelor, the poor girl from New Orleans is thrust into the spotlight among the Southern Californian elite where she learns that none of the people in Cain’s world are what they seem. Everyone has secrets and hidden motives beneath their perfect facades, even Cain himself, and over the course of the four-book series, as their tumultuous yet unstoppable love grows, he gradually begins to share his secrets with her amid grand gestures of affection and extraordinary, mind-bending sex…all while a killer hunts among his ex-submissives.
