Review by Jackie: Filthy Rich by Virna DePaul

High finance and a sizzling office affair raise desire and passion to the boiling point in Virna DePaul’s seductive new contemporary romance—perfect for fans of Carly Phillips, Lori Foster, and Molly O’Keefe.

Cara Michal has had to fight every step of the way to earn her place in the glittering seven-figure world of Wall Street. Years ago her hardworking father, a small-time investment adviser, was humiliated and wrongfully accused of fraud. Now Cara is at the top of her game, trying to support not only herself but her mother and brother. The occasional night out dancing soothes Cara’s soul, even as a bitter need for revenge against the man who destroyed her father makes inner peace elusive.

Then, in a moment of heat, Cara kisses a sexy stranger at a party—only later to discover that the man is Branden Duke, her new boss, an infamous operator with a wicked reputation in bed and on the Street. Branden is a man who seemingly has it all—except a woman who connects with him on a physical and emotional level. Now that he’s found Cara, he’s not sure he can let her go, even if he should.

In spite of herself, Cara is drawn to this charismatic guy. He is a challenge like none she has ever faced in her life. Their passion for each other is unquenchable, surprising them both with its ferocity. Even as Cara wonders if she can trust this man with her heart and soul, the ecstasy of their love cannot be denied. But when the past threatens the present, the two are faced with a truth from which they may never recover.

4 Star 
I was given this book through NetGalley for a honest review
My first book by Virna DePaul and I really enjoyed it, I will certainly look for more from her.
Cara has had a tough life and is now supporting her mother and her brother after her father died from a heart attacked after being accused and framed for stealing money.
Branden is a hot sexy billionaire who doesn't commit to any relationships. Brandon has just purchased D&B where Cara works. No one knows the company has been sold yet .....
So when Cara meets a tall dark stranger at a works party and has a heated moment with him the last thing she expects is to be introduced to him the next day as her new boss......
Cara and Brandon have chemistry but Cara is also  strong woman who doesn't rely on men to get through life. Will they both except their feelings for each other or will their parents past come back to haunt them........
This book has a lot going on and its not your typical billionaire romance, Yes it does have some great hot sex scenes but it also has a story that involves mystery, suspense and a stalker as well as some insider trading. 
Its a standalone but I do hope we get more from the other characters in this book.
