About this ebook

He's determined to ruin her, but he might just end up falling for her instead.

Keep your friends close...

And your enemies closer.

I knew Leilani Hart was trouble from the minute she stepped foot into our small town.

With her big city ideas and hotel heiress reputation, I know she’ll turn our picturesque island into a tacky tourist trap if given the opportunity.

She’ll have to go through me first.

From our first meeting, we’re like fire and ice, and I can’t help but wonder what it would be like to pin her down and melt some of those frigid layers right off.

I’ve never believed in love, but for her, I just might be willing to risk it all.

Even if it means falling... for the enemy.

Keywords: strong heroine, slow burn romance, contemporary romance, romance books, enemies to lovers, womens fiction, steamy romance, book series, small town romance, completed series.

Oh my gawd!!! I love Taylor and Lani!!! This couple just made me happy! Taylor’s plans for life were derailed years ago when he needed to step up, become an adult, and help his family. And he has done just that. When his brother Dean was emotionally absent, Taylor carried on the family business. His love for his family, friends and their small island town have kept him content. However, when others encourage him to find love he knows that that will never happen as love tends to disappear all too quickly. In an effort to gain her father’s attention, admiration and acknowledgement, Lani sets out to renovate the small motel his company owns. Located in the Outer Banks, her plans might include razing the building to the ground and starting over. Unfortunately, the citizens and business owners are not happy about it and the ring leader is none other than the hunky fisherman next door. This was a wonderfully entertaining enemies to lovers story! Taylor was just so perfect in his attitude toward life despite his own disappointments. When he meets Lani for the first time he moves full force ahead until he learns who she is. Lani knows exactly who all the players are and she’s determined to ignore Taylor at all costs. When her father gives her an ultimatum, she is forced into Taylor’s company where she learns that history can be quite thrilling when accompanied with passionate kisses that break all the rules. I loved how this couple’s relationship developed with anger, then laughter followed by plenty of steam and chemistry. Taylor and Lani complimented one another even as sparks flew each time they were together. The relationship drama was low angst which helped to showcase the amazing personalities of these characters. I absolutely loved Taylor’s sense of humor and how it brought out the best in Lani, who had lived a lifetime of loneliness. I usually don’t put a lot of weight on the heroine as it’s all about the hero for me. However, Lani was just too wonderful in all her actions and reactions to do anything but fall in love with her. She has definitely made it onto the top of my favorite heroine list, which include only two others. This is a well-paced book that never bogs down and yet includes so many interesting facts about Ocracoke. The secondary characters are just as amazing as the hero and heroine without consuming the story. I adored Piper, Lani’s best friend, and I’d do almost anything for her story! The heat level is so freaking hot the steam from my kindle may have burned my fingerprints away. I wasn’t setting this little pretty down for anything, third degree burns be danged! Overall, this is the best book in the series, although I’ve said that about each book. I dare you to find a couple that will make your heart sing more than Lani and Taylor.
