Dax Marshall is a business shark that cared not for emotions... except NOBODY ever tells him no. He had just purchased a resort to be flipped later when he spotted Kenzi Barrington, of the rich Barrington clan, on the beach of his new resort, drunk but attempting to get to the beach for a swim. He saw the sadness and despair in her eyes, and brought her back to her room and allowed her to sleep it off. That unlikely meeting created an interesting friendship, for Kenzi is indeed burning up inside, having kept a secret so long she had turned self-destructive, and nobody in the family is ready to listen. And she had to tell the one man she knew who is strong enough to stand the truth... Dax Marshall. And that shared secret will affect how they define life... and love.
I've always liked Ruth Cardello's novels more than her sister, Jeanette Winters. These characters seem to have a better depth to them without making them TOO wounded (unlike some authors who thought the more wounds the more defined the character). Kenzi's story seems to start with just plain bratiness, but you get a hint of tension underneath that exterior, and soon realize there's a lot more to her than that. And the family is like the "avoid crisis at any costs; just don't talk about it". Dax... was okay, but he's basically Richard Gere in Pretty Woman, starts as business shark, then wanted to turn companies around by the end of the book. A little cliche, I guess? Still good read.
Kenzi didn't deal with physical abuse but she sure wasn't heard when it came to what she wanted. She was raised to be the "perfect" daughter, someone who would politely submit to the wishes of her family. And above all else, do NOT upset her mother. You know that can't last forever, the pressure from that is about to blow. Also the secret that she has herself is adding to the pressure.
I did like how the friendship between Kenzi and Dex develops. He helped her get free and stand up for herself. Kenzi also began to show Dex that he was more caring than he ever imagined he could be. She really begins to sees that caring side of him, he is so good to her. She just seems to bring that out in him and at times it's pretty uncomfortable for him.
I liked how brutally honest Dax was, it ended up being one of the things that Kenzi needed and ended up loving. She was finally able to be herself for a change. It was fun to watch them grow and overcome.
You will enjoy this love story that unfolds and allows us to gain insite to the entire family and their demons.
This story ties into a trio of series and also gives a glimpse of the billionaires you have met in the past. This series is amazing and I only see it getting better.
