A lone wolf. That’s me.
Growing up, it was Mom and me against the world.
But now that she’s sick, it’s my turn to take care of her. If I have to work until I drop to get her what she needs, then that’s what I’ll do.
What I don’t see coming?
The sassy, heart-of-gold brunette who lives in the apartment next door. Meadow Ridley drives me to the brink of insanity, it’s only fair for me to return the favor. Taunting her lights a fire in her that drags me in over and over again.
Being ordered to work with her to nab the bad guy? I can’t resist the opportunity to push her buttons. If nothing else, just to piss her off.
Falling for her in the process? It can’t happen. I won’t let it. Not when my future isn’t guaranteed.
Turns out I have as much control over that as I do Mom’s illness.
Because as it happens, all’s fair in love and leaderboards.
All's Fair in Love and Leaderboards is the first book in Alina Lane's Phoenician Heat series. Join Meadow and Griffin on a forced proximity, enemies to lovers, competition style race to catch the bad guy.
Loved this well matched couple that were competitive with each other…. In a good way! The storyline had lots of opportunities for humor, humanity, and heat! This was a well balanced read that I really enjoyed!
