young couple hugging

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.

I’m starting to feel like the grumpy old lady of reading, lol.

Damn. I hate a doormat.

The heroine is a complete doormat. Being in her head is like being in the head of a whimpering, whining cowardly child.

She revolts me somewhat.

Sadly, because I am in the head of this weak and whiny doormat, I have no clue what the hero is really like. Currently, he’s a complete and utter dick who has bad taste in women.

I’m really hoping it will get better…but I doubt it will.

Damn. When book blurbs lead you astray.

ETA: I couldn’t take it. I started skimming…and becoming more impatient with every word read. The ending though…I both hated and loved the ending. I hated the commentary on her life (I say “her” because she is so weak and pathetic I can’t remember her name) but I loved the gesture from the hero. It killed me that that was the ending.Annnnnnd guess what! It’s another serial! Screw your serial. While I do want to know what’s going on…I’ll not spend the money just to finish up the story that should have been completed in one novel. I’ll wait until the series is complete and a fangirl writes a Wiki of it.
