Review

4 stars!

A short, sexy enemies-to-lovers romance. Originally a part of the GLAMOUR Anthology (and originally titled Red Hot Pursuit), this novella is now available as an individual standalone that fits into the Fight For Me series. Timeline-wise, it actually comes before the first book in the series, but it can honestly be read at any point, or even as a standalone.

Broderick Wolfe is a hardass businessman who gets what he wants. Lillith Redd is a big-hearted attorney who is desperate to protect her loved ones. When Broderick’s firm plans to move into Lillith’s town and demolish the building where she was essentially raised in order to build a luxury hotel, Lillith steps up take him on.

Broderick and Lillith battle it out over email as they prepare to meet in person, and their heated interactions – though infuriating – become the best part of their day.

She was sharp and obviously loyal. I’d never even seen her. But apparently, I didn’t have to. Just sitting there and reading the fight in her words made my dick hard.
There was nothing like a strong woman who knew what she wanted.
The best part was I wanted it more.

But before their first meeting can take place, they run into each other in a bar and, having no idea who the other is, things get hot and steamy.

“Why do I get the feeling that, given the chance, you would swallow me whole.”
My mouth brushed the very corner or hers, the words a low promise where they grated from my tongue. “Believe me, baby, I might devour you, but you’ll enjoy every second of it.”

So when they meet for real, it adds a delicious dynamic to the story as these two enemies not only have to fight over their business deal, but they also need to contend with their insane chemistry and the sexual tension that literally jumps off the page.

God, I liked this woman about just as much as I hated her.

I reached out and ran my fingertip along the sharp, defined curve of her jaw, my eyes keen on the movement as I did. Her mouth dropped open just as I began to murmur deeply, “Mark my words…I will have that building, and then I will have you.” I edged every closer. “Or maybe I’ll have you first.”

I really enjoyed this read. It’s quick and easy, and obviously fast-moving, but Broderick and Lillith are great characters and their story is fleshed out really well. Their attraction is palpable and the sexy time is steamy hot, and the connection between them naturally becomes something more intense than either of them ever expected.

“I’m afraid of this. It’s insane that I’m here. You’re the last person I should fall for.”
His big hand cupped the side of my face. “Don’t you know all great love stories never should have been? That’s what makes them great.”
“Is that what you think this is…the start to a great love story?”
“Do you want it to be?”

But how do they reconcile their business differences with what is developing between them? And can two people with such different goals really make it work?

“I shouldn’t fall for you.”
…“Yes, you should.”

Quick and steamy with great banter, a nice amount of heart and an epilogue that finishes of the story nicely, I really enjoyed this one.

4 stars.
