You can't hide from love...or revenge
Dodge Loving wants revenge...and he's about to get it. On the cusp of closing a multi-billion-dollar luxury resort deal, Dodge can't afford for anything go wrong. But then a fiery redhead shows up, the paparazzi hot on her trail, and throws his world into chaos. He has to get rid of her. Immediately.
Harper Conner just wants to be left alone, but after slapping her cheating senator ex-husband during a televised press conference, she's a hot commodity. The ultra exclusive resort in Wyoming seems like the ideal place to hide-and work-so there's no way she's letting the Type-A jerk who runs the place fire her.
Despite the animosity sparking between them, Dodge and Harper can't keep their hands to themselves. This thing between them can't happen. It won't. But his mother has other ideas...and she's willing to do whatever it takes to make sure Harper and Dodge fall in love.
Great start to a new series!
I don't think I've ever been disappointed with one of Avery Flynn's books, and this is no exception! Dodge is a bit of a jerk and it frustrated me the way he was plotting his way around Harper. As he gets to know her, the attraction turns into something more, but in his obsession of getting revenge against his grandfather, he almost loses her. Harper has been through a lot with both her ex and her parents and lost herself in the process. It was great to see her being true to herself and become her own person. The chemistry between them is great. Wonderful introduction to the Loving family - their mom is too cute. Looking forward to Dodge's brothers stories - can't wait to see who their mom matches them with.

Dodge and Harper have serious attraction from the start. Dodge is practically drooling from the first time they met. Harper is not sure she can spare him the time of day.
With outside forces helping the attraction to go from a spark into a flame - can they still resist? The hot scenes are worth reading, that is for sure!
Harper has a job to do and has no time for a playboy with arrogance issues. Dodge and Harper ultimately want the same thing. Don't they?
I found this book to be a fun read. I was a little put off at the characters attitudes. I felt they were a bit selfish. Overall has enough to make it worth the while.

Dodge Loving runs an ultra private resort/retreat in the middle of Wyoming. His grandfather runs a hotel that is in dire need of a cash influx. They are competing against each other for a place within the global resort company, The Brasch Group. Nothing will stand in the way of Dodge making sure his grandfather loses EVERYTHING because of the way he disowned Dodge's mother many years ago, when she married a black man. Is his need for revenge making him more like the old man than he wants to admit? Then his mother hires Harper Conner and he can't keep his eyes or hands off her until he finds out she works for his grandfather's company. Is she a corporate spy? Can he trust her?
Dodge is one fine looking cowboy/businessman. I think he gave up too easily on Harper. For as close as they got, I didn't feel the deep feelings from Dodge that he should have had. I felt the fun and sexy rendezvous in the kitchen, in the hall, and in the library, just to name a few, but no truly deep "love" feelings. Still, a very steamy and sexy romance with a fantastic cover!
