Darius Bennett can’t live without supreme control. A self-made billionaire, he’s rich enough to get anything—and any woman—he wants, yet he’s still haunted by a broken relationship. Five years ago, Darius let Taylor Erikson go because he knew he could never give her what she truly wanted: his heart. But the moment Taylor walks back into his life, bruised and beaten, Darius blames himself. To make good on his betrayal, he vows to help her heal—in and out of the sheets.

Once upon a time, Darius was Taylor’s world. Now his fierce embrace is exactly what she needs to get back on her feet. But Taylor pays a heavy price for her sizzling nights with Darius. As the emotional ties become stronger than ever and the paparazzi hunt her down for their next juicy story, Taylor must face some hard truths. They can’t go back. And to move forward, the key to loving Darius isn’t about keeping his secrets—it’s about exposing them.

(Dirty Little Secrets#2) 
Tied to His Betrayal (Dirty Little Secrets, #2)He was the darkness of night, she was the sunlight of a fresh new day, together they were magical, but Darius had other plans for his life, plans that didn’t include leaving his stain of darkness on Taylor.

Taylor is back, battered and bruised from an abusive relationship and Darius vows to fix the damage his betrayal of the heart caused in the past. He is a man in control, what he wants he gets, but Taylor deserves better, even with all of his billions, he doesn’t know how to say he loves her without hurting her. The one thing he can do is protect her from his dark sexual needs and the paparazzi that turn their friendship into something lurid, or to be perfectly honest something they both want, a real relationship.

Tied to His Betrayal by Stacey Kennedy is a very dark and painful romance between two people who are polar opposites. One loves the life of domination, both in and out of the bedroom. One seems almost too innocent or naïve to be realistic. The entire story has so much potential for love and sizzling sex, yet, it never quite got off the ground for me. Too many sidetracks, brief twists and dark secrets from both the past and present all unfolding too quickly without the depth they deserve.

One thing about Stacey Kennedy’s writing is that she doesn’t pander to the audience with her characters, she seems to be good with her readers not liking or understanding them while she builds up to full steam ahead with the plot. I Like a powerful author who writes what she feels, but sometimes, the end result isn’t what hits me as rocking awesome, but that’s okay, this is still a strong piece of work from a talented author that should not be overlooked! One question I had: How come it isn't okay to be a millionaire, anymore?

I received an ARC edition from Loveswept in exchange for my honest review.
