Publisher Description

A new stand alone enemies-to-lovers romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

Derek Ballentine and I have always been on opposite sides of everything.

I went to a public Savannah high school. He went to a private Catholic school. I went to Duke on scholarship. He went to UNC as a legacy. When we both end up at Harvard for graduate school and we’re finally on a level playing field, I think it’s all going to change.

I was wrong.

The only thing that changed was ending up in his bed.

Now my grandma has passed away, and Derek is the attorney helping the people trying to steal her legacy. I’ll do anything to stop that from happening. Even take on my lifetime enemy.

I hate him at first sight…but I also want him at first hate.

Oh wow!

True to writing form from KA Linde, this story was gut wrenching, romantically perfect. 😍 A Must Read

I read the Cruel Trilogy and of course the 1st Wright brother book. This is well written and loved that over the years, love conquers all.

Mrs.Gragg ,


The chemistry of these characters are off the charts, the heartbreak and life in general for the poor girl. Gives you all the feels from start to finish. I love alll things KA Linde and this one is no different.

Angst level 100! Love it!!!

Folks…we may have a new KA Linde favorite!! The angst is REAL with this one!! I also absolutely LOVED how she had “cameo” appearances of some very familiar characters in previous books! (It makes me really picture them all as real people!!! I’m invested even more now!)

Marley isn’t going to let anyone stop her from reaching her life goals. She didn’t have the most ideal childhood but is blessed to have been raised by her grandparents who she adores and strives to make proud. Lucky for her, she also has some AMAZING friends, all of which she will need to survive Derek Ballentine…

Derek has it all. Money. Popularity. Athletic. But the one thing he wants most, the one thing that challenges him most, is Marley and she’s not interested! (Or is she??) Derek sets his sights on Marley in high school and this amazing book follows them both on their journeys together and apart. Sometimes in life we picture things a certain way, and when that picture finally develops it’s often times not what we expected it to be at all. How will Derek and Marley’s picture develop?? Dive into this one today and find out!!!

PS, after you read this book, let me know if you want a “sidecar” too!!!
