Short review:
This is the second book in the Billionaires from Blackcastle series by Olivia Gates. This time it's about Lightning aka Raiden Kuroshiro and Hannah aka Scarlett Delacroix.

Like in the series predecessor book, Raiden and Scarlett also had amazing chemistry and a very strong connection. Raiden and Scarlett have a past, they met years ago and fell in love but then a betrayal lead to them leading separate lives and 'Hannah' disappearing from Raiden's world.

Oh, once again Olivia Gates has delivered in spades! What a beautifully woven love story filled with exotic locations, revenge and two tortured people. What more could you want in a romance novel? Oh yes, that's right, and the steamiest love scenes delivered in beautiful poetic writing as only Olivia can do!

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.

Let me start off by saying I absolutely love this book. The story takes me on a trip to Japan a place I want to visit especially now. Raiden is on the verge of getting everything he ever dreamed of his family back. But doing his engagement party he has this feeling that he just can't shake. In walks the source of that feeling Scarlett. Love this love at first feeling. From the moment these two get together it's super HOT!!! The way the author

I absolutely believe this book is one of Olivia Gates's best work. I loved it and have re-read it a couple of times.

Raiden, our hero, is super hot and if memory serves me right, he's the first Asian male (that I know of) to feature in a Harlequin novel. Having been kidnapped as a child and trained as a mercenary, he grew up never quite having a sense of where he belonged. He escapes from the oppressive and sinister group of mercenaries, creates another persona then proceeds to ingratiate himself

Too slow-moving. I never really cared for or felt connected to Raiden and Scarlett, and I didn't feel the love between them. Their relationship seemed based more on lust and their strong physical attraction for each other. The storyline about The Organization wasn't very compelling. I was looking forward to reading this because of the Japan setting, but there was no sense of place in the story. Other than the Japanese characters, it seemed like it could have been set anywhere.

Very good

I really loved this book, as other reviews stated, more information about " The Organization" is revealed and more of the brothers. In the series, I hope Cypher will get his own story too.

All of the chapters are filled with pleasant surprises and adventures. My initial anticipation for this book is that it was going to have a predictable ,"happy ending"plot,and I have been gladly proven wrong. To say the least, this book was truly explosive. Raiden one of the Black Castle gods "accidentally" met Hannah and then he started ,"living" He then found out that nothing was as it seems. Olivia Gates uses so much imagery which in turn allows the audience to make a connection to the story. ...more

Olivia Gates weaves a sensual web of attraction between billionaire Raiden Kuroshiro and the intriguing Scarlett Delacroix. Gates' latest novel in the Billionaires Of Black Castle series is as impossible to put down as the last. I'd planned to stretch this book out over a few evenings, but I didn't have the willpower not to read it in one sitting. An amazing setting, vibrant characters, and an intriguing plotline all combine to make this one a must read.
D2345 Dec14 #2 in the series. Raiden Kuroshire reclaim his heritage by marrying a Japanese woman. He reconnects with Scarlet, the woman he has loved for years. She had disappeared and now he discovers she did it to save him and his brothers from the man who had kidnapped them as young children, and forced them into a life of crime.

I love books where the Hero feels one last tryst will be that. And then the heroine is left with a life time package. As females we all want the picket fences and loving family. However she understands that Raiden does not want that, therefore she will make do, leaving him to decide what is most important. Good story.

This was a hard one for me to read...
started off very slow and did not know where this story was going.

Pressed on and by chapter 5, I was hooked.

Happy that I kept reading, Olivia did a good job as usual
