Fear: Falling in Love with An Alpha Billionaire (BWWM Romance) by Amarie Avant

22 year old Luxury Whitson is a romantic at heart. Yet this florist only grasp at love is listening to a customer's sentimental story while he purchases a beautiful bouquet of roses for a significant other. When Lux crosses paths with Victor, his presence commands her attention. From a tailor-made suit that drapes over 6 feet of muscles to aqua blue eyes that hold her siege, Lux falls fast. Victor exudes sex, and a plethora of other emotions. The most intense one being... fear. 

Victor has a strict policy: work now, play later. With a sharp and twisted mind for murder, this billionaire doubles as a hitman. Victor always takes assassinations seriously until meeting Luxury, the daughter of his next mark. Now he has a new challenge. Tame Luxury and keep the Whitsons' alive.... 

I have to say my favorite character was Victor by far. I love a tall, dark and handsome man with a large bank account. But what I liked most about him was that he was a British aristocrat with a twisted mind. Dark is my favorite. He has everything in life and yet he chose a profession of danger. (I won’t give away his trade) It wasn’t because he was spoiled or bored; it was because of his warped mind stemming all the way back from childhood.

Lux, Victor’s love interest, is the typical girl next door who leads a simple life. She becomes enthralled with Victor and falls hard, fast. She wants to fight him but just cannot as she gets sucked into his twisted world. It happens. It’s all chemistry.

I like the concept of how Victor desires the daughter of his assignment. At first, it’s a game of control that turns into actual emotions. Victor is a worldly man, who can have any woman he wants, and he has, but Lux is different. She’s not rich, spoiled or vain which is what he is used to. In this novel of danger and intrigue, the author did a great job of hooking me in and keeping me interested. I cannot wait for book two to see what happens next.
