Review: Force My Hand by Em Brown

Synopsis (via Goodreads):
Independent and always in command, Darcy Sherwood holds her own among the cads and rakes who frequent the dubious gaming hall where she works. When she has the opportunity to exact revenge upon the man who wronged her sister, she intends to provide the arrogant Baron Broadmoor the biggest set-down of his life…by requiring him to be her suitor.

But when the Baron begins to play his role too well, can Darcy resist falling for the man she’s supposed to hate above all others?

Radcliff Barrington, Baron Broadmoor, has no intention of quietly submitting to Miss Sherwood – even if she does hold the deed that could ruin his family. He intends to turn the tables on Miss Sherwood. She must surrender the deed or surrender herself…

Passions flare to erotic heights as Darcy and Radcliff struggle to see who will submit to whom. And all bets are off as to who will win…
My Thoughts: Currently a free read at, this wasn't a terrible book by any means but neither was it fantastically outstanding.  In fact, there were times when I didn't quite understand what Darcy and Radcliff saw in one another.  He calls her a whore, she's trying to milk him for a bunch of money to make up for the fact that his cousin won't claim her sister's illegitimate child.  Like I said, it wasn't bad exactly, but neither was it fantastic.

One point in its favor were that the editorial issues were at a minimum.  There are times when I'm reading books that aren't put out under big name publishers and the sheer amount of misspellings and poorly constructed sentences are enough to make me grit my teeth.  I don't remember running across any glaring errors and such.

So there you have it.  I didn't hate it, I'm just feeling ambivalent about it.
