Genre: Dark Romance Standalone

I’ll stop at
nothing to own her. 
I’m a collector of dolls.All kinds of dolls.So beautiful and sexy, they become my art.

So perfect and flawless, my art galleries are flooded by the wealthy to gaze
upon my possessions with envy.

So fragile and delicate, I keep them tucked away for safety.

The dark and torrid tales of Drayton’s Dolls run rampant through the rich and
famous, and all but a few are true.

Normally I share my dolls for others to play with or watch on display.

But not my special doll.

No, not her.

Ivy is the most precious doll of all.

She’s mine. All mine.

*Scoundrels & Scotch is a dark billionaire romance. If you don’t like a
splash of shock, a dash of taboo, and a heavy dose of sex, then don’t take a
sip of this TOP SHELF cocktail.

Bettina A’s Review: 4 stars
Victor Drayton is a well known artist around the world. His shows are taboo and his “dolls” are the object of his art. These women live and breathe being a doll to please Victor and to be a part if his shows. Ivy enjoyed her job at Spiked Roses. So why did she break one their most important rules? Without a job, Ivy is offered job to be a infamous Drayton Doll. Know knowing what to expect but really needing the job to take care of her family she accepts. At Drayton’s dollhouse Ivy realises being Victor’s doll isn’t as bad as she thought it would be. Ivy also learns something about herself. With all the notary the dolls has received there are people who are willing to pay for them. Can Victor save them or will someone become their new puppetmaster?
This book had my attention from beginning to the end. The dark and twisted artwork of Victor Drayton is something I wish I could see in real life. Scoundrels Scotch wasn’t as dark as I thought it would be but I still enjoyed reading it. Little by little I saw the dynamics between Ivy and Victor change and enjoyed seeing two people come together. I would most definitely recommend this book to others if they like taboo. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series!

Lita T’s Review: 4 Stars

Scoundrels & Scotch  (Top Shelf #3) by Alta Hensley is Victor and Ivy’s story. Victor is not only a partner in the club Spiked Roses but a successful artist along with his Drayton’s Dolls. When Ivy gets fired from the club due ro a failed drug test Victor decides to hire her as one of his dolls. He sees something in her that pulls at him. When he first gets her to the doll house he finds her submissive ways pulls at him in other ways and he is looking forward to see what type of doll she will be. There is more to Ivy than her failed drug test. She really needed the job at the club. The money and tips were real good. Now she has a chance at being a doll but she isn’t quite sure she can handle what it entails. However the more she trains to be  a doll the more she learns about herself. Another good story. There was of course some action and some kink. I definitely enjoyed Victor and Ivy’s journey to discover. We also get to learn more about the characters and their lives. Really looking forward to the next book. I give this story 4 stars.
