Picking up right where the third serial left off, Hannah's true identity is out in the open. You may think that this would cause Jackson to change tactics, but surprisingly, his determination to break her only grows stronger. He recognizes that he's already crossed a line with Hannah and is unwilling to change his course without getting the answers he came for.

While this installment has Hannah on the receiving end of Jackson's cruelest behavior yet, it also contains a great deal more tenderness

We are finally about to find out the truth

Jackson and Hannah’s love story is getting better and better. This book was the steamiest of the three, with a lot of hot sexy scenes and the D/s part of the relationship has been in the forefront now that Jackson knows that Hannah is not her sister. Jackson is truly starting to believe in Hannah now that he knows is not she isn’t pretending to be submissive like her twin Harley did when he was first getting to know her and she was conning him into fall

OMG! Another 5++++ Star Success. I don't know how she does it! Lili Valente has once again totally outdone herself. Desperate Domination is spectacular and gripping and is another page-turning triumph. After leaving us hanging once again at the end of book 2, Desperate Domination thankfully picks up virtually where we left off immediately drawing me right back into the lives of Jackson and Hannah.

This book had me on the edge of my seat!
Hannah has finally confessed her true identity to Jackson and although he struggles to believe what she tells him, he begins to accept the differences between her and Harley. Although Jackson considers himself a monster, Hannah sees past that and finds herself falling in love with him. This discovery uncovers feelings that Jackson has spent years burying within himself.
Just when you think things are going to work out for Jackson and Hannah, the unthinkabl

I am loving this series. (Though I hate the serial format). This picks up where book 2 left of but with MAJOR reveal at the beginning. Jackson is starting to come around and show a side of goodness. Hannah, is strong willed and yet submissive. A great match for Jackson. I'm really enjoying this well written story. There are secrets revealed, HOT sex and a MAJOR cliffhanger. Definitely reading the next book which is the final installment.

Wow. LOVE this book. This book was one of the best in the series. This is where the truth about Hannah's real identity is exposed. This is where Jackson must make a choice. The book is full of drama, lust, passion, danger and love. Will our dysfunctional couple be together and will Jackson ever abandon his quest for revenge against Harley??
I must admit that Hannah is one of my favourite heroines ever. Her generosity and love are simply awe inspiring. Jackson is dark but under the surface there i

**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review.**

Holy Batman, this book was hot. Hannah and Jackson have a chemistry that leaps off the page.

Yes, Jackson can act like an add, yes he has his problems, but he can also be sweet and admit when he is wrong. The man still has a conscience but doesn't realize that all is not lost.

Hannah can see past his facade to the man hidden deep within, she is a strong woman and helps him even when he is being difficult.

Things are sooooooooo crazy! Jackson discovers his dad is not the man he pretended to be, things are not what they seem with Hannah..... I gotta stop! Dying to get to last installment!

This is the third part in the Bought By the Billionaire series and damn...what a ride it was. Each part has been brought new pieces to this crazy puzzle and I love it. They all end in an epic cliffhanger but Lili has the next part quickly so there isn't too much time to wait. Thank God.

Jackson and Hannah's relationship gets turned up a notch but not always in a good way. Jackson still needs Hannah to give him information that she is not willing to give up easily. Someone is still after her fami

Another roller coaster ride!! 5++++++ stars

"You're mine. You belong to me. You will always belong to me. Because no one has ever made you feel the way I have."

Jackson Hawke might be a monster, but he's Hannah's monster. They belong together and she's determined to show Jackson she can love every part of him - light and dark, cruel and gentle, lost soul and Dominant man.

The truth is out, and Hannah decides to make a run for it. The strong feelings she has for Jackson cannot compete with her need for freedom. However, Hannah is not meant for freedom. Jackson scoops her back to where he thinks she belongs: with him. Can Hannah and Jackson make it work once all their secrets are out in the open? Or will new secrets tear them apart once more?

I love cliffhangers and I'm quickly seeing that Lili Valente is the Queen of the Cliffhanger! I almost have no words to describe this 3 book in the series. These characters have become so complex and real that I'm incredibly invested in their lives and their future and so happy that this wasn't the end! Desperate Domination picks up where Deep Domination ended. Hannah suddenly became afraid what Jackson was going to do to her and she ran. Not knowing where she's going or what the consequences wi ...more

This was an amazing read. The story of Jackson and Hannah continues right where part two left off. The story was filled with suspense and was very interesting. The characters were better as the story went on. Jackson is more open in some ways. Hannah is more independent. However, their strengths as individuals makes them that much more compelling when they are together. They have unbelievable chemistry. This book proves that you should not hide your feelings. The ending was a cliffhanger. Howeve ...more

This is another 5 starts for this author – wow, you have me spell bounded. I did not think that every book could be better than the previous, but surprisingly they are. The story just keeps getting stronger and better. The cracks are starting to show, the lies are unfolding and truths are coming out. Trust is the question, can Jackson and Hannah trust each other. Hannah character is strong even though she is a natural submissive. Jackson goodness is s

Was ok. Thought it was going to be better as the blurb talked up the steamy sex and family secrets - didn’t live up to its expectations. Couldn’t connect with the characters as the story was told in the eyes of the narrator. Not my type of story telling.

My Review:
I've read other books by Lili Valente before but nothing could have prepared me for this one. It was just out of this world. The story was hot, intense, suspenseful, heartbreaking and intriguing. There were completely unexpected twists and turns through the story that just left my head spinning. And around the end of it, I was seating at the end of my seat and anxious to find out what will happen next. With every single page I've read I just wanted

"How much of yourself are you willing to give up, Hannah? How much are you going to let me take before you draw the line?"

DESPERATE DOMINATION, the third book in this series, picks up right where the second left off. And, oh, how I had been waiting for this one, because my hair was standing on end at the end of Book 2, just waiting to see what Jackson Hawke had up his sleeve. And, in true Lili Valente fashion, she picked right back up with this mind-blower of a story and ran with it.

Phew! I had heard that Jackson was going to get crazy darker before he was going to change and dang is that spot on. If you haven't read the previous installments please do not read this review! I can't promise it won't spoil previous events.

Desperate Domination by Lili Valente is the third book in her Bought by the Billionaire four-part serial.

The proverbial cat is out of the bag - no more mistaken identity. But now that Jackson doesn't have a reason to hate Hannah can he pull it together and truly feel for the woman who has the same face as the one he's hated for the past six years? As their bond together grows, the climate turns more dangerous. Threats loom. Jackson believes he is not a good man and now that he knows Hannah IS in

Started with my heart in my throat… and ended the same…

This is the third in a four-part serial and the tension, secrets, heat and emotion are just getting higher and higher! If you haven’t read the first two instalments definitely do that first before reading this.
Jackson Hawke wants revenge, plain and simple. He has been grievously wronged and someone has to pay. Hannah is his target but, as with much in this series, not everything is black and white. Hannah may be collateral damage but at what

I read this book, as well as the other in the series, as a box set from Amazon, so despite the fact that I'm reviewing them separately on Goodreads, the reviews will read the same. :-) My praise will apply to all the books.

Honestly, I'm a little tired of the billionaire stories. I've thought for the last few months that they are a cop-out for writers who have a problem writing a tougher story. After all, it is really easy to write a story if the guy has enough money to make anything he wants hap

Holy hotness! This book was short, sexy, edgy, intense, raw, and dark. This book was crazy hot and made me have to take a breather. I devoured this book is one sitting, craving to know more. With each installment in this series, this author blows me away more, making me want to throw my kindle by the end. That ending was absolutely killer as this is part of a series. You've been warned . . .
