Caught in a messy merger with the mounting pressure to close a multi-million dollar deal, business mogul Ryder Granger finds things are more hostile than the average takeover, but he’s not just interested in acquiring the lucrative Lyon coffee chain. He has an entirely more personal motive hidden beneath his cool exterior and designer suit.
Trace Lyon believes the merger with B&G could be the way out of the closet his strict Southern father keeps him locked in, but there’s one big problem. Ryder Granger is everything Trace wants, and everything his father despises. Two years ago, they shared one incredible night together, but despite the connection and the intense heat, both walked away.
With the deal falling through, Ryder brings an unexpected offer to the table — a more personal type of merger between the two rival families, one Trace is dead against. After all, an arranged marriage in New York in 2016… That could never work out. Taking control in the only way he can, Trace agrees to marry Ryder, but secretly plots to double deal both his father and Ryder. He just has to get this whole absurd wedding out of the way first and ignore how happy Ryder makes him feel.
There are questions he’s hesitant to ask, however. Is Skye a man or a woman? And, what does it mean that he doesn’t really care?

Double Dealing is a story filled with super sexy hotness, alpha rich men, unrequited sort of then requited love, lies, secrets, and most importantly; the search for that one person that makes you whole. Did I mention it’s really hot? Seriously! The sex scenes are off the charts explosive. I read a lot and I have to say these guys, Trace and Ryder, are raw, animalistic, and all consuming. Sex like that can only come with an unrelenting love.
So now that you know I loved the sexy times let’s talk characters. Ryder first. LOVED him. I mean yeah I think it was slightly underhanded what he did to get Trace to be with him but it’s also ridiculously (and yes fiction) romantic. He did have flaws but honestly they were warranted. He’s a man in a room of millions and yet always alone. Until Trace. Opening up more would be his singular flaw. No really he’s practically perfect!
Trace… Okay so, my heart hurt for him at times with his dealings with his dad. His dad isn’t the nicest guy but oddly he loves Trace in his way. His mom is nothing like I’d thought she’d be based on early conversations about her. Trace as a person... I liked him. I really did. He has some broken parts but I did want to hug him and love him. No doubt he’s frustrated and I’d be too. The only minor issue I had with him was; he whined a real lot. Almost to the point I was like, “Oh, Ryder, how are you not packing his bags for him?” I felt that needed to be reined in a little because it was too much for my taste.
I loved the idea of the story and obviously the sex in this book. Ryder rocked my socks clean off and he is truly every knight in shining armor I ever dreamed about.
This is a very exciting, hot, romantic story that I absolutely recommend if you love romantic suspense, hotness, and alpha men in suits.
