Book Review: Unmaking Marchant by Ella James

Unmaking Marchant (Love Inc #3) by Ella James
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance) 18+
Expected Release Date: February 12, 2014
Publisher: Barkley's Books

Marchant Radcliffe, owner of the exclusive Love Inc. brothel outside Vegas, is no stranger to darkness. He lost his sister in childhood and his parents in college. Since his best friend helped him finance the Love Inc. ranch almost ten years ago, Marchant has drowned himself in business—and he’s thrived, despite the heavy secret that has plagued him since his parents’ deaths.

Then, after ten years of good fortune, Marchant’s skeletons start to peek out of the closet, tossing him down a trail of ruin that begins with arson and could end with murder. Because he’s kept his struggles private, he has no one to pull him back from the brink.

Except for Suri Dalton.

After a breakup with her longtime fiancĂ©, Suri, the daughter of one of Silicon Valley’s tech tycoons, has nowhere to go except her BFF’s new penthouse in Las Vegas. The last thing Suri is looking for is a man, but after drowning her woes in wine on the flight over, she stumbles into a torrid make out session with a beautiful stranger—who just so happens to be Marchant Radcliffe, a playboy and a literal pimp.

Despite an immediate attraction, Suri writes Marchant off as exactly the sort of guy she should avoid. Until Love Inc. goes up in flames, Marchant winds up at the bottom of a swimming pool, and Suri is the only one around to pull him out.

What happens when what you see isn’t what you get? What do you do when destiny is too alluring to resist and too dangerous to survive?

Unmaking Marchant is the third book in the Love Inc series by Ella James. I would recommend reading the previous two books in this series before reading this one. You don't have to read this series in order, but I think it all ties together better, and we're also kept up to date on the characters who were the focus of the last two books. We are given both Suri and Marchant's perspectives. This was really beneficial, because it gave you a good look at where they were mentally and emotionally. Who knew Marchant had so much baggage? Poor guy. He takes responsibility for everything, even things out of his control. He has some definite layers, and he's not what he seems. I'm so glad we're finally getting Suri's story too. She's got more hidden under the surface as well... not the the extent of Marchant by any means, but she has many insecurities she's fighting to overcome. I liked her. There's quite a bit of mystery behind this story line. Just when you think it's safe.. Bam! I knew it couldn't be that easy, but I wasn't expecting a cliffhanger!!! What!? I need to know what happens!
