My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Alexa Holland’s father was her hero—until her shocking discovery that she and her mother weren’t his only family. Ever since, Alexa has worked to turn her life in a different direction and forge her own identity outside of his terrible secrets. But when she meets a man who’s as damaged by her father’s mistakes as she is, Alexa must help him.
Caine Carraway wants nothing to do with Alexa’s efforts at redemption, but it’s not so easy to push her away. Determined to make her hate him, he brings her to the edge of her patience and waits for her to walk away. But his actions only draw them together and, despite the odds, they begin an intense and explosive affair.
Only Caine knows he can never be the white knight that Alexa has always longed for. And when they’re on the precipice of danger, he finds he’ll do anything to protect either one of them from being hurt again…
I really enjoyed this book. There is something always appealing about the rich boy falling in love. This isn’t really a hate to love book. Lexie and Caine share a past that causes Caine to instantly dislike Lexie. Lexie at no fault of her own tries to amend for the sins of her father…ones that have caused Caine a lot of heartache. Their relationship starts out rocky with Caine trying to torment Alexa, but it soon blooms into some real. There were some HOT scenes!! I think Lexie was a strong heroine who stayed true to her feelings. Caine had his moments where he truly was an asshole, but he was a complex character and it is understandable why he treats Lexie the way he does at times. The writing was strong and it really captures you. Most importantly, it ends on a very happy note. I definitely recommend this book =)
