Title: The Bargain
Author: R.G. Angel
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: November 15, 2020


A mistaken identity romance. 

When a hard knock raps on her door, Amber Collins doesn't want to answer it. 

She knows it'll be a battle she won't be able to win.

At twenty-one years old, she's struggling to make ends meet, but she would endure anything for her six month old nephew whose big green eyes bring a smile to her face on the worst of days. 

And today is the worst of them all. 

As the knock turns into a deafening bang, she steels herself to confront the rich, powerful, and chillingly handsome Dean Beaumont. The baby's uncle who most certainly has come to take him away from her. Deceiving him was the only way. 

Now, she's being taken to his country estate for six months to prove she's a fit mother. As time goes by, Amber finds herself with another fight on her hands, the need to safeguard her heart from the ruthless but charismatic Beaumont. The closer she gets to him, the more she wants him to know the real her. Not the drug addict hooker her sister was. But if she tells him the truth, she will lose the baby and him forever...

The Bargain engaged my attention immediately as the premise was intriguing and the author’s creative writing style left me captivated throughout the entire read. Moving at a good pace and with spot on character development, The Bargain is a tantalizing romance complete with a unique plot, interesting characters, deception, and steam which I thoroughly enjoyed. 

Dean was exactly what I have come to expect in an anti-hero.  Wealthy and handsome, he wields his words with a sharp sword, is ruthless in his dealings, and craves control  Yet, Amber rarely cowers in his presence.    His cruel words, quick judgments, and questionable actions should have made me loathe him, but the author with her intricate way of weaving the story and impeccable character evolution made me like this delectable, commanding anti-hero. 

I loved Amber as she is a remarkable heroine.  She was a brilliant young woman who possesses an innate kindness that made her so easy to love.  Her vibrant personality and caring nature were apparent throughout the novel and she definitely threw Dean for a loop. Yes, she had flaws and moments of vulnerably, but she also had an inner strength that served her well.  Both characters have backstories that will pull at your heartstrings and will help the reader to understand just how their experiences have shaped who they are today. The two together made an interesting but perfect pair.  Neither really like each other in the beginning and witnessing how their relationship evolved over time was highly entertaining. 

The Bargain is a well written enemies-to-lovers, mistaken identity novel that has an older man-younger woman theme. I did not find the difference in age to be a big deal as Amber’s responsibilities had greatly matured her, but she was still inexperienced in other areas.  I think this helped contribute to why she was an excellent match for Dean.  If you are looking for an entertaining enemies-to-lovers and billionaire romance, then you should definitely check out this book!  I voluntarily read an early version of this book.  All thoughts expressed are my own.
