What a refreshing breath of fresh air! Finally a heroine who doesn’t fall on her back and spread her legs immediately! Lux, our heroine, is simply fantastic! She is quirky, smart, and charming. Lux is desperate and trying to save one part of her building which has been bought by a ruthless and cutthroat businessman. He is as determined to own the whole building and knock it down as she is determined to save it. The battle between these two is hilarious with her giving as good as she gets and both sides taking no prisoners. Dean, our hero, who is used to women who fall at his feet, is intrigued by Lux as she fights him for her building. Their battles are a delicious foreplay and once they give into the attraction they are both feeling, we are left breathless and boneless in a sea of satisfaction. The plot was original and well thought out and there were even a couple didn’t-see-that-coming surprises thrown into the mix. Overall this was an amazing read that I will no doubt re-read in the future!
What Didn’t Work For Me:
This is quite possibly one of the worst blurbs I have ever read. It seriously gives you no indication as to what kind of book you are fixing to read.
