This is a first I have read from Alice Gaines and have to say I loved it. Raine and Jack are two people so different from each other and it's hard to hate them. Take for instance Raine. Here is a woman who has plenty of money but is afraid of giving her heart because of one man. It only takes one man to close her heart yet when it comes to Jack she is having a hard time of keeping her heart closed to falling in love again. Now Jack, talk about a determined man. I loved that he never took no for an answer and the passion between them was wow. This one was a great book and I loved it and highly recommend it. The one person I felt sorry for the most was Raine's mother, which is something you got to read about in this book. All in all this was definitely a great one and can't wait for more from this talented author.
What happens when two people come down on the wrong side in the battle of the sexes? After a disastrous engagement, Raine Winstead wants nothing more than anonymous sex. Unfortunately, she chooses as her victim the most traditional of men. Jack Bugalli believes in love, marriage and family.
Jack has found the woman of his dreams, he just has to learn that a strong man doesn't always have all the answers…
