Grayson Bennett.

He's a billionaire, a lawyer, the king of the world to some. A professed lifelong bachelor. A man who took his father's business and fortune and turned marginal success into an empire. Now someone is threatening that empire and he's going to burn them to the ground. But he'll need the help of one person. He'll need her.

That woman is Mia Cavanaugh, criminal attorney, ex-lover, a woman who believes he betrayed her, a woman who could burn him to the ground, but she won't. Because she loves him. Because he loves her, and it's time that she sees the truth of the past.

Now, he's handing her the key to his future. He's giving her the chance to burn him to the ground. He's letting her see the real man beneath the surface that not even she's seen in the past. She has to decide what to do with that man. Love him or destroy him.

Mia and Grayson.
They met three years ago when she started working for his firm. It was attraction/love/lust at first sight. Even though she was a bit afraid because he was the big boss man.
They've been deliriously happy for a while until something happened. Mia thought he betrayed her. We don't yet know how and what happened exactly. We do know that Grayson says he's innocent.

After not seeing him since his father's funeral, she's now back in his life. She has to warn him. She overheard some people talk about taking him down for doing illegal things. But she knows he would never do that. She has to help him. They have to work together to stop the bad guys from ruining him and his beloved father's empire.


Well, that was adorable!
A sexy & very exciting second-chance romance!

The story goes back in time a few times. We have this huge insta attraction between them. But we also now have all that hate and anger and all those betrayed and hurt feelings ... so much to overcome until we can get our happily ever after. But we love watching them fight their way through everything. With or without clothes! Lotsa fun for the reader. Even though it's a lot of back and forth in the beginning .... I love you but I don't believe you. Ugh.
I didn't like the whole betrayal part of the book. There was no betrayal. He was innocent back then and she didn't even give him a second to explain or to convince her. I hated Mia for that. They could've been happily married for a year now, but she just runs away when things get complicated.
But now she's here and they're using that second chance. A year too late, and after lots of hurting ... especially for our darling Grayson, but better now than never. ☺

I really liked reading it. I also loved that it wasn't as ultra-too-long as the previous books in this series! ☺
It was really exciting and interesting - you just have to keep on reading - you want to know if and how they'll stop Ri from destroying everything!
And plus also .... I can't wait to get Eric's 2 books!!! He's really adorable and mysterious and rich and Navy SEALish nerdy! ☺

DIRTY RICH BETRAYAL was a very adorable & exciting & sexy second-chance-lawyer-lovers-to-enemies-to-lovers romance!
Run to your nearest amazon for your own Grayson - this one is MINE!!!

ARC received for an honest review

Welcome back to Lisa's world of corporate high flyers, dirty deals and even dirtier relationships.

Mia and Grayson's relationship is complicated. Breakups and betrayals abound as our lovelies find their way back to each other.

I will say, I felt that the first 30% of the story went around in circles.  I love you, you betrayed me, I hate you, I didn't lie - rinse, wash, rinse repeat.  Mia and Grayson seemed to be caught in that loop.

And when it came round to it, was there any betrayal to begin with?  Mia annoyed me with all her going on about that - but this could just be me.

I do love the spark and push/pull between Grayson and Mia, and through it all, I do want them to find their HEA, even when I want to slap their heads together and yell at them to snap out of it!

I did like them fighting to be together. Fighting those that are fighting against them.  Giving a big middle finger to the world.  I had to know what was happening next.

What I loved the most though was Grayson's friends.  Oh, how I am impatient for their stories, especially Eric - hello, Navy SEAL.

Please don't make me wait too long, Ms Jones.


He kisses me, a quick brush of lips over lips. “I need you naked. I need to feel you next to me.” He rolls me to my back and with that “for now” in the air, he moves and resettles with his lips to my stomach and this is not an accidental connection. My heart squeezes with the certainty that he’s reminding me of how many times he told me he wanted a little girl just like me. It affects me. We had so many plans. We were best friends. We were so many things that happened so very quickly and easily, and then it was gone.

He pulls down my pants, and all too quickly my sneakers and everything else are gone. I’m naked and not just my body. I am so very naked with this man and always have been. But as for my body, I’m not alone for long. He strips away his clothes, and I lift to my elbows to admire all that sinewy, perfect muscle before he reaches down, grabs my legs and pulls me to him. The minute my backside is on the edge of the bed, he goes down on a knee. I sit up and cup his face. “Not now. Now I need—I need—”

He cups my head and pulls my mouth to his, kissing me with a long stroke of his tongue before he says, “And I need to taste you.”

“Not now. I’m not leaving. We have time. I need—you. Here with me.”

His eyes soften but he still leans in and licks my clit, and then suckles. I’m all but undone by the sensation because one thing I know and know well is how good this man is with his tongue. But he doesn’t ignore my request. He pushes off the floor, and in a heartbeat, he’s kissing me and I don’t even know how we end up in the center of the bed, our naked bodies entwined. We just are and it’s wonderful and right in ways nothing has been in so very long.

He lifts my leg to his thigh and presses his thick erection inside me, filling me in ways that go beyond our bodies; driving deep, his hand on my backside, pulling me into him, pushing into me, but then we don’t move. Then we just lay there, intimately connected, lost in the moment and each other. “Is this what you wanted?”

“Yes,” I say. “This is what I wanted.”

“I didn’t think I’d ever have you here, like this, with me again.”

“Me either,” I whisper, my fingers curling on his jaw. “Grayson,” I say for no reason other than I need his name on my lips. I need everything with this man.

He kisses me, a fast, deep, passionate kiss. “I missed the hell out of you, Mia. So fucking much. I don’t think you really understand how much.”

This moment, right here, right now, is one of our raw, honest, perfect moments that has always made his betrayal hard to accept. I need that honesty in my life and with him and I don’t even think about denying him my truth. “I missed you, too. More than you know, Grayson.”

He squeezes my backside and drives into me again. I pant with the sensations that rip through my body, my hand going to his shoulder. “Nothing was right without you,” he says. “Nothing, Mia.” He kisses me, and I sink into the connection, pressing into him, into his thrust, into the hard warmth of his entire body. Needing to be close. Needing the things that separated us not to exist.
