From USA Today best-selling author Ava Harrison comes an enemies-to-lovers, slow-burn romance with a twist.
Trent Aldridge is the devil.
Rich. Arrogant. Sinfully handsome.
He holds my inheritance in his hands.
Twenty-two million dollars I didn't even know about.
I met him at a funeral.
As one life ended, mine unraveled.
Because he has one goal—to ruin me.
And Trent Aldridge never loses.
My present is gone and my future is in ashes.
All because of a past that's not even mine.
He has it all now that I'm his maid.
He's rude, sarcastic, and well...the hottest man I've ever met.
Lust is a dangerous game to play.
Where there's smoke, there's fire.
And I’m about to be consumed.
You want to hate Trent. Payton does, and as a reader you really should hate him. He's arrogant, and he's controlling, and he's an ass...and, well, you should hate him.
But, you don't. I think it's because he is so ruthless, and so angry, and so...in an odd way...right about how angry he is toward his father, even though Payton is not the person he should be taking it out on.
The pacing of the book is interesting, as it takes time for the reader, and Payton, to see how low and far Trent is willing to act out in anger, and well, you are on Payton's side as Trent is ruining her life and she really didn't do anything.
The switch from enemies to lovers goes past friends, and I liked that. After the way Trent treats Payton, you need to see them forming a connection that is more than lust in order for the relationship to feel even a little authentic. And, they do, and it does. And you find out he has reasons, which if you have read the other books you already know, but they are good reasons, even though he is still taking out his anger on the wrong person.
This is a darker read, and the hero is definitely the villain in the story for quite a lot of it, but you get the happily ever after ending, and a lot of fun on the way there. I enjoyed and recommend this title.
