Solace in Scandal by Kimberly Dean

Greed and lies bound them together, but will the truth tear their love apart?

When Elena Bardot suffers the backlash of a Ponzi scheme orchestrated by her father, she retreats to the abandoned estate of his partners in crime. Wolfe Manor is lush and private, a perfect place to lick her wounds – until the notorious prodigal son returns. Disgraced billionaire Alex Wolfe is aloof, imposing, and sexy as hell. Elena knows she shouldn’t want him, but attraction overrules her head.

Life behind bars has changed Alex. He doesn’t have time for the complication of a gorgeous little brunette – especially one with her name – but the tension between them escalates. Lust overwhelms their resistance, and the sex is hot and cathartic. They’ve both been betrayed by family, hurt by society, and cast as villains. Alone together, they take solace in slow kisses and sensual nights. Yet while Elena may be content to hide from the world, Alex is driven to reclaim his place on top of it. This time, he’s determined to take her with him.

I was asked to read this for Netgalley. It started off slow and I was wondering if I should carry on. It's started to pick up a bit later and the characters getting to know one another is an exploration in itself. I found myself wanting to shout at the main characters Elena and Alex for what they was going through.

I loved the sexual heat between them and the way that they hated what each other was at the start. The heat between them for what their father/grandfather had done in the first place was amazing. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes erotic novels with a twist.
