Black Listed (Benediction #4) by Shelly Bell Hits Shelves Today!!

No one knows how to adapt to their surroundings quite like Lisa Smith, changing personalities and identities is second nature to her, and really the only way she knows how to live. When you are raised by and surrounded by a group of con artists you really have no other choice then follow suit and do what your taught, even if it is wrong. When her father tells her to con, and marry, billionaire Sawyer Hayes, she is game to complete the mission, but things take an unexpected turn. Lisa ends up breaking protocol and winds up falling head over heels in love with Sawyer. Letting her guard down and falling for him wasn't part of the plan, but is sure felt good to finally feel like she had someone in her life who truly cared about her and her welfare. But things between them come to a screeching halt when her father demands she kill him and move on, she can't bring herself to end his life so she flees, with his money, and never looks back. But four years later Sawyer tracks her down, and makes her an offer she can't really refuse, he'll grant her the divorce she requested as long as she spends the next seven days being his love slave, which sounds plausible, but she's not so sure her fragile heart can handle being that close to him, and walking away from him again. 

Having been a while since my last book by Shelly Bell, I had forgotten just how much I enjoyed reading her stories, but after reading the first paragraph of this one I was quickly reminded of the literary treat her books provide! The story line was very engaging and action packed, and had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through. The chemistry between Lisa and Sawyer was undeniable from the start, their relationship was fueled by loads of intensity and passion, and filled with lots of steamy action that left me blushing quite a few times! No one does sinfully sexy tales quite like Ms. Bell, she has a knack for putting the perfect amounts of naughty, romance and suspense into her stories, and giving readers a very well balanced and highly satisfying reading experience!! I have yet to read something from her that I haven't absolutely loved, and I highly recommend you give this read a try, it is sure to satisfy all your reading cravings...and then some!!
