About this ebook

The Blackstones. There are rumors about the oldest brother. Those who know him say he's shrewd, powerful, and not to be crossed. But I end up crossing him in more ways than one.

I thought I would end the year alone, binge-watching my favorite TV shows and eating bonbons while trying to come up with an idea for my next award-winning article. That was until I received a call from an old friend, who made me an offer I couldn't afford to refuse.

So now, I'm ending the year with one of the world's most enigmatic and wealthiest families. When I arrive at Blackstone manor, my friend, Bryn Blackstone, is nowhere to be found. It's her oldest brother Jasper, who welcomes me with unopened arms.

Jasper Blackstone is arguably the dreamiest man I've ever seen. But don't let his good looks fool you; everybody knows not to make an enemy out of him or else he will destroy you. And he knows I earn a living exposing the dirty deeds of powerful families like his. I'm sure that's why he's not happy to see me.

So soon my friend's proposition puts me at odds with her dangerous and alluring older brother who will do whatever it takes to keep his family secrets safe. And then, an unexpected spark between us makes it harder for me to get the job done.

I vow to keep my distance from Jasper Blackstone, but the more I try, the more impossible he's making it.

And now, we have a secret.

Intrigued is book one of The Dark Billionaire Jasper Blackstone trilogy. The story has plenty of angst, steam, and suspenseful twists and turns to keep you turning the pages.

If you want a laugh at lines like "it was time to swallow his pole" and repeated scenes of "he stuffed/crammed his partly soft dick in me" then this is the book for you. "Ah", she said....

OMG!!!!! I loved this book! I honestly read the book twice. The first time I could not put the book down. It had me so intrigued I had to keep reading it to find out what happened next. I was up half the night, but sooooo worth it. This book is so full of twists that it seemed I kept thinking "WHAT???" "No Way!" I read it a second time just to make sure I did not miss anything. The characters are so complex in this book. Just when you think you had one of the Christmases figured out, think again! The Christmases had me perplexed, especially Jasper. I am still not sure how to feel about him. He has many layers to peel back and I believe we have only seen a glimpse. Holly and Bryn (Jaspers sister) went to college together, they are like night and day. Years later Bryn gets back in contact with Holly and wants her to do some "research" on her family. Holly is good at reading people and knows there are dark secrets that the family does not want to get out, except for Bryn. Jasper and Holly have hot chemistry!! Whew, do they ever. I can't wait for the next book, I need to find out what happens. This is one of Z.L. Arkadie's best books. A must read, you will not be disappointed!!

Beginning of a must read series! Really enjoyed this book and can't wait for book 2 as it was left on quite the cliffhanger! Arkadie is really excelling in the suspense and intrigue on top of the romance that her books are always packed with. Can't wait for the next.
