Like, yesterday!

There’s opposite attract, and then there are these two. They couldn’t be any more different! Age gap, lifestyle difference, personality difference, maturity difference… you name it, it’s there. They really are in vastly different stages of their respective lives.

But then you put them together, and the chemistry is off the charts.

The plot surprised me more than anything, and to think this is only Book 1 of 3. I thought I knew what to expect (this is a dark romance, after all); but this book has so many twists and turns that you don’t see coming. That ending though… the cliffhanger is brutal. Why would you dump those plot twists on us, and then leave it like that?!?!

Obviously, read the trigger and content warnings.



Empire of Lust: A Dark Billionaire Romance

by J. L. Beck



I made a mistake.

At sixteen years old I fell for the wrong man.

Callum Torrio.

Ruthless billionaire. Dangerous villain. My best friend’s father.

At twenty one I gave up hope that he would ever notice me.

He’s twenty years older than me, and an arms dealer for the mob.

The smart choice would be to forget he ever existed.

But that’s not possible.

His icy blue gaze, sculpted physique, and huge rough hands play a vivid part in my dreams.

Then one night everything changes

Every fantasy I ever had he brings to life.

Dominant and possessive he praises and worships me.

He makes me feel like a woman when all my life I’ve felt sheltered and controlled.

But Callum has dark secrets, and a past that refuses to let go.

I knew he was a bad man but I never would have anticipated this…


Note: Empire of Lust is Book 1 in the Torrio Empire series
