She changes everything.
No weapon can protect me from the kind of death she will ultimately deliver.

While I love regular, HEA Contemporary Romance, I tend to lean to the Dark side a lot, and I’m fortunate when I come across a books I loved that fits in this particular sub-genre. Villains & Vodka, the second book in the Top Shelf series, fits this little niche quite nicely. Any book that features NOLA as a setting gets extra points, in my book, there’s just something almost mystical about The Big Easy. This book features Harley Crow, one of the owners of the Spiked Roses, a private Fetish club, and Marlowe Masters.

Harley Crow’s a paid assassin and he makes no apologies about it. He’s a loner, and he knows his days are numbered, and that someday someone will come looking for him. The same way he targets his hits.

“The name Harley Crow was one to be feared, and I took fucking pride in that fact. The more people who feared me, the more money I made. Fear also kept me safe…or safer. Don’t’ mess with Harley Crow they say, and my  reply was always damn straight.”

He bought into the Spiked Roses fetish/BDSM private club that caters to a “particular taste” and extremely well-to-do members, a legit business, thinking he might want to retire soon. What he doesn’t like is socializing, but every now and then he has to do his duty, as an owner he has to help out. And when he’s scheduled to join the Tasting Room, an event that pulls in the wealthiest members, he thinks all he’ll do is attend and not partake.

Marlowe Masters works as a waitress at the Spiked Roses club. She’s been running from her notorious family and the road led her to New Orleans, dragging some seriously heavy baggage with her. She’s been fascinated by Harley for a while, but hasn’t been able to catch his attention. Marlowe doesn’t fear him in the least, on the contrary, she’s attracted to him like a moth to a flame. But she should be fearful. Get too close to the flame and a moth can easily get burned. She knew what Harley did for a living and didn’t care. He was her personal version of the boogieman and instead of being frightened by him, the more she observed, the more he fascinated her. When she finds out the next Tasting Room theme is “Who’s Afraid of the Dark?” she signs up when she finds out Harley will be there.

“You had to like my fire. I was the type of flame that burned with thick black smoke swirling around it. The kind that burned your lungs and watered your eyes. I was the flame that most wanted to extinguish rather than stoke.

But Harley Crow…I felt he would dance naked around my fire with wild abandon. Naked and howling at the moon as he did so.

I just needed a chance to show him where I burned.”

When Marlowe catches Harley’s attention he’s drawn to her and they draw up a contract for the weekend. After insisting there’s nothing he can do to frighten her, she’ll soon live to regret her words. And so will Harley.

This book has a HUGE twist that took me for surprise. I honestly fell for it and wanted to howl and beat someone on the chest when it was revealed! This series is going to be an instant 1-click, it’s a sure thing that the next book in the series will be just as gruesome and intriguing as this one was. I. Can’t. Wait.
