Title: Blackmailed By The Hero
The wrong bed. The wrong guy.
Party planner Vicky Stone is on a post-divorce mission. Not only does she intend to land her dream promotion, she's going to indulge in a night of hot hook-up sex. Preferably with the hunky actor she just met at a work function, no-fraternization rules be damned. Fortunately, his drunken directions included a right that should have been a left, landing her in bed with her brother's extra-hot, extra-off-limits best friend instead of the unemployment line.
And, oh, he feels good. Too good.
Bad boy Dante Palladino's forbidden fantasies are about to come true...until Vicky realizes who she's feeling up. And to find out she risked her job for sex with some loser? Not on his watch. Dante throws down the ultimate, albeit self-serving, blackmail. Vicky will date him-and only him-and her secret will be safe. But Vicky swore never to fall for another guy who could break her heart...and Dante's on course to do just that.

Vicky and Dante have known each other for years. Dante is Evan, Vicky’s brother’s, best friend. They first met a bit before Vicky was to be married and there were sparks then. Evan didn’t want that event ruined, so she was warned to stay away as well as Dante.
Now, it’s five years later and Vicky is divorced for a year and trying to move on with her life-but not having a lot of luck doing it. Her best friend thinks she needs to have a night of unbridled sex to get the ball rolling. She runs into Dante at a party she was waitressing at. The sparks are there again, but Vicky remembers Evan’s warning. After a series of mistakes, Vicky ends up in Dante’s bed instead of the intended target. Quite a melee ensues, but Dante vows everything will be alright as long as she dates him for a couple of weeks….
I really enjoyed Blackmailed by the Hero! Dante really isn’t anywhere close to a dark and dangerous type man who would blackmail someone-but you gotta do what you gotta do!! He saw a chance with Vicky and took it. He really was very nice and sweet and ripped and Oh you get the picture-the perfect man. At least for Vicky he seems to be. She just needed to get past some impressions she had of him and the warning from her brother. Dante does a good job of showing her who he really is-not what the tabloids say about him. Vicky was a goner!
Julie Particka wrote a quick, flirty, and very sexy read! I loved the banter! The story flows nicely and I wanted them to get their HEA! I wasn’t disappointed!
