I want to say this is sort of a play on Romeo & Juliet but less "we are going to kill ourselves if we can't be together" and more "everyone wants to keep us apart but destiny has other plans." Lucas and Ivy aren't exactly "star-crossed lovers" but they have known each other for most their lives and because of a falling out with their fathers, they are supposed to hate one another. Lucas sees it very differently though and begins pursuing Ivy much to her disapproval. There is a lot of push and pull in the beginning but as Lucas begins to break down her walls and she lets him in, there is a very wholesome, natural attraction there fueled by lust and eventually love. I really loved the strength of their chemistry and bond as challenges arise and the scenes between them get pretty hot. He pushes her outside of her comfort zone and it's incredibly sexy. Lisa Lace created a very entertaining build up between them and it made for a great romance.

About This Book
The stranger sweeps his gaze around the room then pulls me closer to him. It’s the second time he’s done that, and the second time I haven’t resisted. I like the way he leads me with confidence. It adds to the fantasy of being whisked off into a fairy-tale night.
He presses his lips to mine and leans toward me until his weight is pushing me down. Only a fleeting thought tells me to stop him. When it dissipates, I tip my head back, exposing my neck to him, exposing myself to him and letting him know I’m his. I want his body on mine. I want his hands to roam. I want him to dominate me the way he dominates the music industry.
He pulls my bottoms off and smiles as he looks me over. “Nice,” he says. “I love the little white cotton panties. Very innocent.”
I hate him.
But I want him.
Years ago, his company ran my father out of business. That family is nothing but trouble.
Today, he could snap his fingers and make me a star overnight. For a girl like me, he’s pure danger. Tall, muscular, and arrogant, Lucas is sin in a ten-thousand-dollar suit.
I should stay far away, but I want to tear off his clothes.
When he says he likes my voice, I’m sure he’s flirting. He thinks I’m easy and desperate. When his gaze lingers on my body, I know he’s imagining me naked.
He makes me tremble. I crave every filthy thing he whispers.
It’s dirty and forbidden, but I can’t stop myself from wanting what I can’t have.
