Title: Bane
Series: Memphis #1
Author: D H Sidebottom 

Release Date: January 31, 2017

Milly Evans has been PA to the head of Sparrow Towers for over eight years. And Milly loves her job. Her boss is the most affectionate and compassionate man she’s ever known. Geoffrey Sparrow’s high profile status and company prestige never changed the old man, and with his and Milly’s love for his respected company, their relationship gave them both something to cherish in the workplace and build an even better future for themselves and all Sparrow’s employees.

That is until her boss is brutally murdered and Milly witnesses the whole horrifying ordeal.

And then everything changes.

Warne Industries has been trying to snatch Sparrow Towers for months, their snide underhand ways not once swaying her much loved boss.

And now they are quick to move in and take what they always wanted – Milly included.

Yet, one of the CEOs of Warne Industries who had been hiding behind the anonymity of his partner turns out to be the best friend Milly had left behind years ago, Rik Bane. However, everything she used to love about Rik is gone, and in his place is an arrogant and cruel man, a man Milly no longer recognises.

His new ways, his coldness and the way he sneers down his nose at Milly give her many reasons to flee her new employers. Yet, driven by her love for Geoffrey and his resolve to create a traditional company, Milly is determined to stay and make sure his lifetime’s commitment isn’t torn to shreds and fed to the lions’ piece by piece.

Now Milly’s past, her secrets and the lies she had told to protect herself and everyone around her is suddenly about to blow wide open.

But when it surfaces that Milly is a witness to her boss’ murder, she’s soon running for her life, and the only man that can help her stay alive is Rik.

She dropped heavily onto the inflatable chair and I bit
my lip to stop the loud laugh when she bounced off to the side and collided
with the wall, her forehead thudding on the thin tin keeping the shack
“Fuck!” She giggled, clasping at her brow. Then came the
silly grunt I had so fucking missed. Her bright eyes found mine and we were
both laughing so hard that she held onto her side to stop the cramp.
“There’s a fucking YouTube moment,” she howled as tears
streamed down her face. There was only Esther Dean that could have me aching
with sadness one moment, and in the next, rolling around with laughter.
“Jesus bloody Christ,” I snorted. “I’ve changed my mind;
you’ll get my team killed!”
Taking a deep breath and wiping her tears, she righted
the chair and gingerly sat down, her giggle still making me chuckle. “Oh dear,”
she sniffed, attempting to curb her laughter. “Right, sorry.”
Shaking my head, I grinned at her. “Fuck, you’re so
Any hilarity that was left evaporated so quickly the air clawed
at my throat. She gazed at me, her eyes soft and sparkling as my words hung
heavy between us.
“At least think about it,” I snapped, shifting quickly to
prevent the need to grab her by her throat and kiss her until we both got lost
in one another.
I didn’t wait for her reply, and I jolted when the
caravan door slammed shut behind me.
Bettina A’s Review: 4.5 Stars

*I voluntarily reviewed an ARC for this book*

Rik and Esther were childhood best friends until one day Esther suddenly disappeared with her family. Fourteen years later Esther is not who she used to be. Going by another name, Milly, she’s a secretary for a company that specializes in government contacts. Suddenly her boss is killed and the company taken over by someone else who wants to keep her on staff. If that isn’t bad, someone is out to get rid of Esther. Rik spent fourteen years looking for Esther and when he finally found her he realised nothing had changed. He is not the same boy that Esther remembered, there’s a hard edge to him.  As the two start to learn the truth about each other pasts, secrets and betrayals are revealed. Can they survive the lies and deceit? Or will that be their downfall?

I loved this book. There were twists and turns I did not expect. DH Sidebottom does not disappoint. I could not put this book down. I would recommend this book to anyone. I am looking forward to reading more of her work.

Bane (Memphis #1)

Bane by D.H. Sidebottom
Tanya Rae’s rating: 4 of 5 stars

Milly aka Esther knew Rik from her childhood. But, she disappeared and Rik hunted for her. Now years later and he finds her again. Her boss Geoffrey Sparrow’s has been murdered and Milly witnessed it. Now the only person that can save her is Rik Bane and you can finish reading the synopsis. Bane is a Romantic Thriller and has some twists and turns I didn’t see coming. This story is told in both Bane’s and Milly’s point of view.

Have I mentioned that this book is sexy too? I enjoyed this book loved the twists and look forward to book 2 in the Memphis Series.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. I give Bane 4 stars
