Blackmail (Controlling Interest Book 1) (English Edition) Format Kindle
Bristol Anderson will do anything to protect her younger siblings. Even if it means embezzling from the company where she's a temp. No one will find out. And the wealthy owner of the investment firm will never notice.
Except Will Leblanc doesn't miss a thing.
He could call the police, but he has more interesting plans for her. In the copy room. On the conference table. Under his desk.
The coldhearted venture capitalist will make her pay back every last cent.

This story is of Will LeBlanc. If you read the previous Collector trilogy by Amelia you have already met Will because he is one of the two brothers of Emerson LeBlanc. Will is a powerful and controlling man. When he meets his new temporary assistant Bristol Anderson for the first time he is already drawn to her, but he has a strict rule to not start something with employees. But when he finds out that she was stealing some money from his company it’s the perfect opportunity to blackmail her.
I was so intrigued to find out more of Emerson's brothers and Amelia didn’t disappoint! I read this book in like three hours because I couldn’t put the book down. I was so captivated by the story and I just needed to know what happened next. Will and Bristol have such an instant chemistry you can’t deny and there is so much sizzling tension in the air. They are pure fire together! Bristol is such a strong woman what she is going through and does everything for her two younger siblings. For me Will is a broken person and I can’t wait to find out more about his story!
Really can’t wait for the next part!
The book's writing was solid for the most part, although the story is pretty tropetastic. There's Will, the damaged hero who puts up a normal, if cold and ruthless, front to hide the fact that he's emotionally crippled, using an underground fight club as his poison of choice to remind himself that he's not worthy of love. There was a lot of 'I want her but am no good for her so have to let her go for her own good' business that's been done a thousand times before. I actually thought Will was pretty decent for the most part, trying to help Bristol and being really protective of her. Considering the title of the book is Blackmail, I expected there to be more of him subjecting her to his naughty demands but there seemed to be more of him fantasising about her and the idea of having her in his life while he spent money to try and 'save' her rather than actual dominant and deviant behaviour to manipulate her for his own means (and sue me, this is what I was hoping for more of lol). The phrase 'blackmail' is repeated often, but unfortunately stating something doesn't make it so. If it was, I'd be swimming in money and married to a Hemsworth while reading all day and playing with my dozen cats and alpacas. As for Bristol, she has her own issues. She's the primary caregiver of her ten year old twin siblings and living with a deadbeat father who has them moving across the country as he escapes from one con to the next. When an armed man threatens them, she decides to steal...while she's a temp...at the behest of her loser father who then perks right up at the thought of his daughter putting herself into danger or using her assets to help him out. Honey, it's time to drop your dad like yesterday's garbage. She had the whole naïve, virginal, just doing her best to help her family vibe going for her. She was compassionate but started coming pretty close to the 'too stupid to help' type (thankfully she didn't cross into this, though, so I liked her).
There are also a lot of familiar, well-worn clichés. She was an inexperienced virgin but Will has magic bits so naturally she's turned on by his dominance and darkness, leading to minimal pain as she jumps onboard and rides the pleasure train. I believe the word 'frantic' was used in their initial joining. There was the strange and repetitive use of the slur 'corporate *insert the 'w' word that rhymes with door*' used by both Will and Bristol to refer to the latter character. I think maybe this was thrown in here and there to give the supposed blackmail situation some teeth - it didn't - it just seemed weird when the term kept popping up. Will's mother left him as a child, so the usual 'all women are evil who will just leave me' song and dance dragged out - surely someone who's so successful and has money falling about him everyone is more clued on than this? Talk about long-term mummy issues. There's also his constant referral to himself as a monster hiding behind a suit and rules at work.
It was a solid enough and entertaining read, even though it was trope city at times. The instalove was strong and some of the repetition wasn't too far behind it. While the story obviously isn't finished, the blurb for Book 2 makes the story line sound pretty similar to Blackmail so I'm not sure if I'll grab it when it comes out - I'm afraid more repetition of the same themes will make me stabby, no matter how much I liked the main characters and the story line in general. Quick note: there's also a book on Will's brother so some readers might be familiar with his story and background. I haven't read Emerson's story and even though there were references to him and his wife, it didn't impede this story.
So here's the basic premise. Woman has a con man for a father and two younger siblings to take care of. She embezzles from her temp job in corporate Manhattan to pay off her father's debt, and her boss finds out. Rather than calling the police and firing her, the devious alphahole of a boss lays out a completely different way to pay back the money.
Holy hades, if you like ‘em scorching hot, this is the read for you! Nothing too outrageous (at least, not yet) but H O T ! The chemistry between Bristol and Will is palpable, and for those of you who love a broken, damaged hero that only his strong, compassionate heroine can heal, this is your read.
Yes, it's a cliffie ending, but not a jaw-dropping, I-want-to-smother-this-writer-with-a-pillow kind of ending. It just leaves you wanting more. Begging for all things Will and Bristol, and probably pre-ordering the next installment, Extortion. Read as they come out, or wait and read them in an epic, smexy, heart-wrenching binge, but read them!! You absolutely will not be sorry.
Bristol has a job temping for Will. Unfortunately she has no option but to take her dad’s advice and embezzle some money from Will’s company, in an effort to keep her her father as well as her 10 year old twin siblings safe.
When she is caught out, Will finds a way for her to pay back the money . . . but not in cash.
With the heat and spice, Amelia takes us on another Wild(e) ride!

Sexy, a bit dirty, and chemistry. Will Leblanc is one hot but powerful and at times, demanding man. A dark past. Bristol has more on her plate than she can manage and when she does something illegal to help her father, it puts her in debt with Will.
He decides to make her repay him in other ways, and she cannot help but like it. Despite being temporary, a bond builds, and Will finds himself in conflict. A man with a dark past, he is more than she can handle, so he thinks. But Bristol wants all of him.
Can he trust himself with her?
