Book Spotlight/Giveaway: Making Scandal by Kiru Taye

Sunday, September 28, 2014

I am very excited to have Kiru Taye here at Brazen Babe Reviews. I just love her work, so when the opportunity arose to spotlight her newest series The Essien Trilogy, I jumped all over it. 

Making Scandal by +Kiru Taye, Author
The Essien Trilogy, Book 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Multicultural
Add to Goodreads TBR


Sassy, successful Faith Brown has earned her place in the boardroom
through hard work and sheer ambition. Making family is not on her agenda when
there are businesses to develop and competitors to outdo. So when a casual
affair with smooth and irresistible tycoon Mark Essien leads to an unplanned
pregnancy, she’s determined not to make the mistakes her mother made by living
with a man just for the sake of her child.

For Mark, personal matters have no place in the boardroom. Spotting the
perfect opportunity, he ruthlessly launches a takeover bid for Faith’s Investment
Brokerage firm. Finding out he’ll soon be a father, he knows he can’t let the
indomitable and sexy Faith go through with her plans of single parenthood. All
gloves are off. He’ll seduce her by any tactic necessary if it means his child
doesn’t suffer the same stigma he did as a child.

With the media dogging their affairs in the boardroom and the bedroom,
they find that making family is harder than making scandal.

Faith's cheeks heated and she half-laughed, half-coughed in a self-conscious manner. Her body still tingled as if it finally woke up from a long sleep. A really long sleep. "Of course, I wasn’t expecting that finally getting you to loosen up will get me so out of control I was going to explode within seconds like a teenager." How could he say that or even expect her to believe it? In the past year, he hadn’t exactly been lonely. Unlike her. He shouldn’t pretend this was more than it was. Sex. Lust. That’s all they had.She rolled over,trying to cover herself up in a semblance of decency. The thought of him with other women had her heart clenching tightly."If I believe that, I’ll believe anything." She pulled herself up and away from him. "You forget that your pictures have been splashed over the papers with different women hanging on your arms this past year."The mattress depressed as he sat on the edge. Tendrils of his heat curled around her. Breathing saturated her lungs with his spice. Need bubbled in her veins.She closed her eyes, hating the tightness in her chest.Remember, this is just sex. It doesn’t matterhow many women he’s been with this past year.Bullshit. Her hands clenched into fists, tightening on the seams of her clothes."Yes, I’ve attended events with women all because you refuse to be seen publicly with me. I would rather have had you as my escort on those occasions."Fingers, steel bands, wrapped around her ankles and tugged. Eyes flying open, she gulped in air and slid down the bed on her back until her legs straddled his hips. One by one, he removed her shoes and massaged her bare feet. His fingers worked blissful magic. She purred, to her dismay."But I haven’t had sex with another woman since I met you at that conference in Jo’burg."
