Falling for his rivals' little sister could cost him everything …

For Liam Trulane, failure is not an option. He is determined to win a place in Katie Summers' life before she leaves Independence Falls for good. But first, he needs to make amends for the last time they got down and dirty.

Only problem?

His professional success hinges on striking a deal to buy Katie's family business. And after Liam's relationship with their Katie went south years ago, the Summers brothers are more enemy than friend. If both parties agree to set the past aside, they can reach an understanding. But when Katie welcomes him back into her bed, Liam risks everything to make her his.

After Liam betrayed her trust, Katie Summers will do anything to keep him from walking away with the family business. She decides to seduce him, knowing that when her brothers find out, they will back off from the deal. And she'll finally have her revenge. But when her plan spirals out of control, Katie learns that payback may come at too high a price …

My Review:

Intro: I am finally back to normal. Internet is good. Health is good. I am still playing catch up with everything but at least my week from Hades is over.


Heroine: Katie: I liked her. I really did. But I was sort of stuck in the middle of really empathizing with her and being completely frustrated with her. I was also caught in between wanting her to let go of the past and wanting her to really get her revenge on Liam. I usually make my judgments about where I stand with a character’s motivations but I couldn’t with Katie.

Hero: Liam-I really felt for him. He so wanted to make it better with Katie but she was holding onto the past like a lifeline. I loved him. He learned from his past mistakes and wanted to make it right which is something I really appreciate.

Chemistry: I loved the angst with these two. I really did. But I found myself a bit frustrated with Katie. I wanted her to let go of the past and move on. I loved their journey together and really adored them as a couple.

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: I really enjoyed this one. I loved that, despite my frustrations with the heroine, I never lost interest in the story. I actually think that my issues with Katie might have enhanced my interest in the book because I was only frustrated with her because I wanted good things for her and holding onto the past is never a good thing. I will restrain myself from singing a couple verses of “Let it go.”
