1. She’s my fiercest rival.
2. She’s also my fiery ex.
3. We’re going up against each other in a stiff competition to win the hottest new client on the market.
And yet, I’d like to be up against the wall in a stiff competition to get her to call out my name.
Time to double down on my resistance to her tough-as-nails, take-no-prisoners, sexy-as-sin attitude. The same attitude that I find irresistible.
That’s the big problem, because in this race to nab the client I run into Haven in the hotel, on the beach, in the guest quarters late at night.
Hate sex would be a terrible idea.
Except, it’s the complete opposite, and now we can’t keep our hands off each other.
Trouble is, I’m not so sure it’s hate I’m feeling anymore.
And that’s the biggest reason sleeping with the enemy you’re falling for is a bad idea — my job literally depends on never letting her into my heart.
Her hand slides down my back, and it feels reverent. Her touch does so many things to me. It turns me on, it riles me up, and it sends me soaring. And now, it makes my heart thunder like a wild animal in my chest. One that wants to be with her, next to her, beside her.
“More,” I whisper. “Give me more of your kisses.”
“Take them all,” she tells me.
I am ravenous for her. I don’t know if I will ever be sated.
Not with her scent in my head, her body curled around me, and her kisses on my lips and in my soul.
We might have come in here for one final hurrah, but as we kiss like we can’t ever get enough, this doesn’t feel like the last time for either of us. It doesn’t seem like the end run down the slopes.
I should keep that thought to myself. But when I’m with her, when she’s close like this, I can’t think rationally. It’s too hard to lie or to pretend like she’s the enemy.
My rival, yes.
The competition, yes.
But she’s also the woman I can’t quit.
The woman I don’t want to quit.
Truth? For me, neither of these were the most likeable characters I’ve experienced from Ms Blakely – at least at the outset. And yet, this story just works. All the right words are put together to ensure that, despite my initial lack of love with the protagonists (and that faded pretty rapidly), I was soon wrapped up in this delightful enemies to lovers story.
Great chemistry coupled with a fun and flirty story arc, and you inevitably have a hit.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
