Lexi is the oldest Titan sister, Skye and Izzy are her half-sisters but they may only share a father, a strange hard businessman,but they have a real love for each other. The girls have a wonderful, tough best friend, Dana the policewoman who seems to have problems with men too!
Lexi finds herself in a financal bind-she had taken a $2 million loan to buy the building her day spa is in and make improvements to make it a bigger business and now the loan is being called in and she doesn't want to go to her father or sister for the money to cover the loan. In steps sexy Cruz Rodriquez who has business proposition for Lexi.
Of course Cruz and Lexi have a history they raced for pink slips some years ago. She lost her car and her virginity that night and maybe she lost her good sense where Cruz is concerned. Cruz's proposition is for her to be his fiancee for 6 months to introduce hin to the Texas Society he can't get into without an introduction by a member - Lexi and her family are one of the "first families" of Texas Society.
Cruz came from the barrio and has a father that he doesn't want! He has a plan and wants to follow it but he has a hard time not falling for Lexi, of course he doesn't know how he feels just that he likes having her with him. Lexi creates a wonderful world for Cruz, takes him into her confidence re:her loan and all the other unusual happens with her father and sister, and of course living with him! They both can hardly wait to be alone wherever it might be in their home. Lexi has a bombshell for Cruz, can he take it?
I'm eager for next month, the month after and finally the 4th book in the fall. The Titan's are a BIG Texas family!
“Soon, Lexi,” John told her, standing and shaking her hand. “You only have three weeks to come up with the money or you lose everything.”
Having the ability to sum up the disaster of her life in a single sentence was quite the gift. She hoped John appreciated it.
“You gotta be tough if you’re gonna be stupid.”
Dana ignored the menu. “What happened?” she asked. “Someone rip you the wrong way during a bikini wax?”
Dana looked as if she wanted to argue but instead she said, “I’ll help you move and I’ll be the one driving my truck.”
"Because you don’t trust me with your baby?”
"But it’s just a truck.”
Dana winced. “That’s why you can use it but you can’t borrow it.”
“Every guy is warm-blooded,” Izzy said before taking a bite of her burger. “He just needs the right woman,” she mumbled.
"We’re not talking about sex,” Skye said.
"That’s because you’re not getting any,” Izzy told her.
I will re-read this story and always look forward to works by this author.
She has a $2million callable loan that she must pay within a few weeks, or lose her business.
In comes sexy, uber-rich, Cruz.
Cruz and Lexi have a one-night past when they were kids. Cruz came from modest to poor means, and is now one of the nouveaux riche. And what do the uber-nouveaux riche always want? To be validated by the old-money crowd. So Cruz and Lexi strike a bargain so that Cruz can be accepted by the old-money crowd and Lexi can get her $2million so she doesn't have to go crawling to daddy. (who by the way, is a total tool)
I lost a bit of respect for Lexi when she took the deal. She was basically prostituting herself to save her business. Can understand it if she had children to feed, etc. But a spa business? Ugh.
So when you get past the whole premise of the deal (from her side), the book is great to read.
Susan Mallery does a great job peeling away the layers of the male character. The walls come down and the 'alpha tough guy' is really sweet, kind and vulnerable. The endings are a bit too quick for me. I like a more drawn out ending. Definitely love epilogues too. But these books don't have them. (insert sad face here). I loved reading about Cruz and watching him change, page by page in this book. Lexi works effortlessly, but tenaciously, to break down his brick walls, open him up to being loved, and loving someone in return. It's not overt. But fluid in the chapters. So that makes the book more fun to read. It's not an 'in your face' situation where the heroine is working hard to break down the hero's walls. It happens naturally. So she redeems herself by being the person that teaches him to love.Read more ›
Jed Titan is wealthy with three grown daughters, Lexi, Skye and Izzy. He divorced one wife, and the other died. He told his daughters that only one of them will inherit everything, depending on which daughter is the most successful on her own. Lexi opened a day spa. She borrowed $2 million from an anonymous source through her banker. The source calls the loan demanding she pay it off in 21 days. She doesn't want to ask Jed for help. Cruz conveniently overhears her dilemma and offers to give her $2 million if she will pretend to be his fiancé for six months. She agrees. This means she must sleep with him and introduce him to the right people, including politicians and potential wives. Cruz wants to marry "a woman with good bloodlines and family connections who would allow his children to have a much easier beginning than he did." He grew up poor and started making money by racing for pink slips. He owns businesses in the car industry, is into racing, and is extremely wealthy. Ten years earlier, Lexi was attracted to Cruz and spent a night with him. She liked him a lot, but when he saw that he took her virginity, he was scared. When she saw the look on his face, she said something cruel to protect her pride. He left and they never had any further contact until now. She finds herself still drawn to him but doesn't tell him.
A second story involves someone wanting to hurt the Titan family. This generates bad publicity for Jed, Skye, and Lexi about illegal activities and a lawsuit. None of this is true, but false statements are being made.
This is a romance novel, but it didn't pull me in emotionally. There is nothing new, surprising, or exciting. Dialogue is unremarkable.Read more ›
