Genre: Contemporary Romance
When it comes to women, sexy, well-built Kyle Coleman has always been a lover, not a fighter. His one exception? The sassy, tempting, smart-mouthed Ella Fisher. Her family and his are sworn enemies, which make the two of them off-limits—despite the fact that she's inspired some of his dirtiest, most erotic fantasies for years. But when the lines between animosity and lust become irrevocably blurred one fateful evening, their one night stand leads to a very unexpected consequence—that changes everything between them forever.
Loved this book! Kyle is determined to do something for his mother to make her happy, even if it means stepping on the toes of the towns' people he'd left behind years before. Even, it turns out, if it means devastating the one person from his past he'd once thought he'd die for. Well, he's an adult now and he doesn't have time to revisit old emotions. In fact, he doesn't have time for much of anything since he's busy with his own company and making money.
Ella, on the other hand, never left her hometown and pursued her dreams since her father fell ill and needed someone at home to care for him. Her sister wasn't going to stick around, so Ella remained to build her family's business and was hoping to expand it until Kyle rolled into town and ruined everything. He ripped her dreams right out from under her without any thought. He forced her to step up and fight for what she wanted, even if it meant being vulnerable in front of the one person she'd long since forgotten about. Besides, her family and his family had been at odds for years and nothing was going to change that now. So she had nothing to lose when she confronted him, and everything to gain if she could just convince him to sell her the building.
Kyle is a good guy. A really good guy. He's a mama's boy at heart and never stopped loving Ella, but family and life got in the way. He's a very likable character. Ella is a strong woman, but she is tied to her home by a father who is pretty selfish and a sense of responsibility. She is fairly stereotypical in terms of being a woman who would give up her dreams to care for others. I liked her though because she was willing to stand up to Kyle and step outside the comfort of her life to try to get what she wants. She is willing to take risks, even when she is terrified. I think that made her more relatable. I expected someone a bit more feisty, due to the blurb on the book, but she's still a great character.
This book just makes you feel good! Great relationships, feel good moments and some teary moments, but a good read. Great collaboration between two fabulous authors!
