Sienna Jensen had no plans to return home when she graduated college last spring—after all, her dreams lie in California. But when she discovers her grandmother’s Nashville home has been foreclosed, and the new owner has started the eviction process, Sienna has no other choice but go back to Music City. And she comes face to face with the flawed, gorgeous man she never thought she’d see again. The man who now holds the deed to her grandma’s estate.
When millionaire rock star Lucas Wolfe finds the outspoken redhead glaring at him from across a courtroom, he’s both infuriated and intrigued. He still can’t get the night Sienna almost spent with him out of his mind, and the chemistry between them is as undeniable as it was two years ago. He craves Sienna more than ever. And just like everything Lucas hungers for, he’s determined to have her.
Now, Lucas will do whatever it takes to lure Sienna into his bed, even if that means making a deal with her: ten days with him, playing by his rules, and he’ll hand over the deed to her grandmother’s home. Though she agrees to the arrangement, Sienna is conflicted. Because of her duty to her family. Because of promises she’s made to herself and a past that still haunts her. And as Lucas’s game of seduction continues, and Sienna is introduced to his dark, erotic world and even darker background, she realizes that at any moment, she could be devoured.
Hmmm…. I think the word for this book is ‘disjointed’.
The plot was the best thing about this book. Unfortunately it wasn’t approached very well but I understood and liked the idea of the storyline. I could see where the author was trying to go, it just didn’t get there.
The characters had potential but were under developed and I lacked empathy for them. I didn’t really feel like you got to know them at all.
I found some of the scenes hard to follow and at times found myself going back over a page to work out who had said what, what they were referring to and where in the room people were positioned etc. trying to make sense of things…
I found the whole thing quite slow and unrealistic to be honest.
There were a few steamy scenes (not nearly enough) but I had issues with the whole dominance thing in this book. If a man is going to be dominant, he damn well needs to step up to the plate… and unfortunately, Lucas just didn’t. He was just a bit bossy and arrogant.
The ending was… odd! It seemed rushed and as if the author had just gotten bored of writing so just decided to wrap it all up and be done with it. It felt as if the relationship went from nothing (and I wasn’t at all convinced of Sienna’s ‘love’ for Lucas) to earth shattering, confess-my-love-to-you-in-front-of-the-world intensity in the space of about two pages… it just wasn’t believable.
One of the main features in the story was meant to be the winning back of Gram’s house. When the moment came it seemed to be glossed over in an instant. Very odd.
