SHE'S FIGHTING FOR CONTROL...

Celeste Connor swore that she'd never be a victim again. After the hell of her abusive ex, the last thing she needs is to be under another man's thumb. But when she catches the eye of fiercely dominant Nartan Lupan at her best friend's wedding, Celeste finds herself drawn into a glittering world of wealth and power that has her body aching and her mind reeling.

HE'S FIGHTING TO MAKE HER HIS...

Nartan is a filthy rich businessman who works hard, plays harder, and doesn't take no for an answer-and he wants Celeste with a hunger he's never before felt. He'll do whatever it takes to have her. But Nartan didn't expect that he'd want still more...








Celeste is in Alaska for her best friend Sabra's wedding. Also present is Nartan - the future husband's best friend. Celeste and Nartan met once before and both have been horribly attracted to each other ever since, but especially Celeste doesn't want to admit the attraction.
She's still so horribly hurt and scared and broken, after the divorce from her manipulating, controlling, violent rich ass of an ex husband. Who is due to get out of jail soon - and even though she's a master in martial arts now, she's still a bit scared of him bothering her again.
But Nartan isn't one to give up easily. When he sees something that he wants - he takes it.

It went deeper than desire, bordering on craving.

But Celeste doesn't make it easy for him...


There might be some close moments and some kissing in this Alaskan paradise...



But once we're back in southern California Celeste thinks she's seen the last of Nartan.
And she even admits to herself that she's a bit sad about it...

But as we already know, Nartan isn't one to give up easily ☺

WHAT WiLL HAPPEN WITH CELESTE & NARTAN?
WiLL THERE BE A HAPPY EVER AFTER FOR THEM?
OR WIiLL THERE BE A HORRiBLE CLiFFHANGER?


Nope - I'm not telling you anything!!!  ☺

I really enjoyed reading this book.
I was so looking forward to read Nartan's story - we already met both him and Celeste in the first book in the series and now they have their own story.

There was lots of going back and forth - especially from Celeste's side - she said yes one moment and ran away the next - that happened not only once. It was a bit frustrating.
But it was also great to see how Nartan didn't give up and how they fight their way through all the obstacles in their way to get to their HEA ☺

The book was very sexy - there was some serious sexual tension between those two.... and things got really hot!!!!!

Some things I didn't like.... Dawn repeats lots of words and expressions.
A few examples...
Everybody is always curling their lips in, thinning theirs lips, rolling their lips - I always imagine a dog when I read something like that - very weird. It just happens way too often.
Then in only a short few pages she uses the word VESSEL 5 times. Instead of calling it a boat or a yacht. Also weird.
Another thing...some lines or comments ... I didn't understand what they were supposed to mean. I had the feeling they're just letters and words and they don't make any sense in relation to what the conversation was about.
And way too much lawyer talk. I know Celeste is a lawyer and it might be fun to lawyer-talk a bit in the bedroom. But once is enough.

Overall I also had the feeling that it would've been amazing if Dawn had made two books out of Celeste's and Nartan's story. The first part of Filthy Rich - where they were in Alaska - could've been a bit longer. I think it would've been great if that Alaska-part woudl've been one book, that could've ended in them ending up together, but with the still unclear future of what will happen once they get back to their real lives... And then in book #2 - back in LA - with all the problems of their jobs and Celeste's crazy Ex et cetera. I think there would've been enough story to do that.
Because the way the book is now - it's all a bit too insta-love and it feels like things are missing.

BUT - that all didn't stop me from enjoying the book.
But if it hadn't been for the amazing character of Nartan - the book might've only gotten 3 stars from me.



But all in all...


FILTHY RICH was a really sexy and adorable - even slightly suspensy - Romance!
You will sooo want your own Nartan after reading it!
