⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5
Lucius Vinemont is an arrogant man. His family owns Magnolia Sugar, it was built by him mother. Lucius and his two brothers run the company, but someone wants to take it over buy them out or do a hostile takeover.
Evelyn is looking to take over Magnolia Sugar and dismantling it. She wants to destroy the Vinemont family and she plans to do it by any means necessary. The only problem is that her plans don’t go the way she wanted and now she has a shadow. He’s not the only shadow though, and the other shadow could be the more dangerous of the two.
I really enjoyed this story, it was full of action, secrets, betrayal, danger, and a powerful family that is ruthless in protecting what is theirs. They’re also the family that ended the Acquisition years prior, and now they are in danger with the old guard and new blood trying to bring it back, but they know that the Vinemont’s will have to be destroyed or ended before that can happen. The only trouble is that the Vinemont’s are more powerful that any expected them to be, and they don’t the backing the families do that are trying to renew the Acquisition. The characters are well developed and strong. The story was enjoyable, and the danger was palpable. I give this story a 4-star review.
