I am a huge fan of enemies to lovers trope and this book gave me top notch E/L content.
Byron is a ruthless businessman who refuses to give up any amount of his power or business. He goes after what he wants and acquires it no matter the cost. I love me a ruthless mofo who you want to hate but he’s so so damn smooth that you end up liking him like crazy.
Honest to God, I actually got a little hot and bothered when him and Olivia were bantering.
Olivia is the kind of woman everyone other woman looks upto and aspires to be. We all want to be proud of who we are and its was really refreshing to see a female character who was 100% into her happiness and needs.
Their chemistry is obviously scorching. I knew they were either going to fall in love or destroy each other in the process. Their whole dynamic was insanely intense and so thrilling to read. I also liked how the story flowed smoothly.
The only thing that hit me wrong was the fact that Byron had 2 employees/ helpers/ servants and CD gave them a name and subtle personalities but they were PoC. The whole white man’s servants thing did not sit right with me and I feel it wasn’t entirely in good taste.
I am really excited for Logan’s book because he’s a Crowne and I am finding them really drool worthy.
“Why should I sleep with you?” I cross-examined the witness. It was the only way to manage Byron.
He considered his cup as if committing to his goal, then studied the way my finger tapped the counter as if choosing a strategy, then pondered my face as he decided on his tactic.
“Because you’re wet already,” he said with a deep knowledge of what aroused women looked like. “Because you want what I can give you. Your head hasn’t even acknowledged it, but your body knows.”
“That’s—” I was going to end in a denial, but my nipples were hard. “—not relevant. You and I don’t make sense.”
“That’s correct.” He gulped tea. I left my cup on the counter, refusing the challenge. “We are a disaster. You despise me too much to want a relationship and just enough to turn you on. And from what I can tell, you don’t want to get involved enough to force an ethical quandary. So, if you agree in principal, I have a proposal.”
Agreeing in principle meant revealing how badly my body ached for him.
Disagreeing meant never satisfying that ache.
“I agree in principal.”
“My proposal is one night. One full night…”
I could commit to that, and I was about to when he continued.
“…where I own your body.”
“You let me own you when we fuck. You come when I say. You obey me without hesitating. That’s what you want and you know it.”
My cheeks prickled, radiating the heat of my shame.
“No, then.” I pushed my cup away. “It’s never been like that. I’ve had three long relationships and a couple of flings but never—”
“—really enjoyed it.”
It was all lies… even when he spoke the truth, he lied.
About the Author

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.
She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
