I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.

Lola West is the queen of sweet, intelligent, silly, sexy romance! She has a Ph.D. in women’s studies and a flair for the dramatic. She likes cotton candy, astronomy, kitten heels, and small-town hunks. Lola is a pen name. The mind behind Lola is just like you – an everyday person living a regular life, happy to daydream about sexy men and the sassy women they love. LONG LIVE THE BOOK BOYFRIEND!

Everybody talks about Bruno…

Bad boy. Entitled. Spoiled. Words whispered about the wild and distractingly sexy heir to the Difrancos record label. When his parents die unexpectedly, he finds himself not running the company, but instead under the thumb of Ava Childs, the woman he loves to hate.

Everybody loves Ava…

She owes the Difranco family everything. They kept her off the streets and gave her a home. Even their rebellious son took a turn playing her hero, accepting the blame for her mistake. For years, she meant to come clean and tell his parents the truth , but now they’re gone and it’s too late to redeem him in their eyes.

Now they’ll have to work together…

Knowing Bruno will never accept “charity” from the girl who betrayed him, Ava devises a plan to see the company in his rightful hands. She’ll use whatever tricks she can to make it happen. They both want to be free of the other, but working in close proximity reveals just how thin the line between hate and love truly is.

“I. Am. Not Your. Enemy.”

Ava has had to hustle her entire life. She plays the game better than anyone else because she knows she has no other choice. Bruno grew up wanting for nothing. He also grew up understanding his privilege. When he makes a sacrifice that shifts everything, Ava knows she will stop at nothing to even the score because she believes in Bruno, even if he doesn’t believe in himself yet.

Ugh! I was not ready for this to end. I enjoyed this book so much. This is the beginning of another epic series from Lola West.

Ava was a beautiful character. She has the ability to see people for who they are and what they are capable of. She can work a situation and come out on top. She is brave, strong, and loyal.

Bruno has never wanted for anything, otjer then his parents attention. Growing up the prince of a record label has been challenging. When it’s time for Bruno to rise up and take what is his, he knows he can do it, but only with Ava by his side.

I love the premise of this book, and I am so excited to see where this series goes. I wish this had been longer, because I’m not ready to say good bye!

I love how emotional this story was. Lola is such a talented storyteller, and her skill was showcased in this book. She will take you high, low, and everywhere in between.

This series is going to be incredible.
