When Harper Mathews gets drunk with a friend and hacks into her boss’s personal accounts, Arturo (Ace) Charles Easton gives her a choice. Work as part of his secret hacking team, searching for clues to the people who infiltrated a weather control program, or face unemployment and jail.

But working as part of this team isn’t all that Ace demands from Harper. He also expects her in his bed, when he wants her there, how he decides to make love to her, and for as long as he desires.

Ace is part of a group of friends financing the efforts to put a stop to The Madeline Project. These men have power, resources, and money, but they’re as ruthless and possessive as the storms ravaging Earth.

They call themselves the Weathermen… 






Review
Drinking to excess rarely ends with good results and Harper learns that lesson with a vengeance in An Appetite for Blackmail the first in Ravenna Tate’s new series The Weathermen. After of night of drinking, Harper’s wakes up with not only a hangover but a belly full of regrets, especially when her boss calls her to his office. Losing her job could be the least of her worries, but she never expected the options Ace gives her. I must say that I wasn’t really a fan of Ace when I first met him. But as we got to know him Ms. Tate did a wonderful job of making him likeable. I mean he has Harper over a barrel and what does he decide to do? Use not only her skills but also her body, so not cool. But then we learn about his insecurities and secrets you begin to understand why he does what he does. It doesn’t hurt that Harper also has feelings for him. I loved seeing Harper justify her actions and reactions. She doesn’t make excuses or allow herself to be seen as a victim. She takes responsibility for her actions and her emotions. I loved that she was a smart cookie and even though she found herself in an awkward situation, she made the best of it. I enjoyed this new series by Ravenna Tate. The characters were flawed but strong and their chemistry was believable. I am looking forward to where she will take us next in this new world.
