** Book Review ** TO BLACKMAIL A DI SIONE by Rachael Thomas

To Blackmail a Di Sione

3 1/2 STARS!

Fairly slow to get into, but I did enjoy seeing them develop their relationship once they let their guard down some.

Billionaire Liev Dragunov has planned revenge on those responsible for ruining his father’s business for most of his life.  He grew up in a harsh way because of how things went down, and he wants someone to pay for that!

Bianca Di Sione has caught Liev’s attention and is the perfect path to his revenge, but she keeps turning down his overtures.  When he discovers a weakness in her facade, he swoops in and gets his hands on the thing she wants most … an old bracelet with special meaning to her grandfather.  Blackmailed into pretending to be his fiance, Bianca is bitter that he has the power to use her like this, but she lives up to her end of the bargain.

As they spend time together pretending to be a couple, real feelings start to show through … will Liev be able to avenge his family without bringing down Bianca’s?
