Sienna Jensen had no plans to return home when she graduated college last spring—after all, her dreams lie in California. But when she discovers her grandmother’s Nashville home has been foreclosed, and the new owner has started the eviction process, Sienna has no other choice but go back to Music City. And she comes face to face with the flawed, gorgeous man she never thought she’d see again. The man who now holds the deed to her grandma’s estate.
When millionaire rock star Lucas Wolfe finds the outspoken redhead glaring at him from across a courtroom, he’s both infuriated and intrigued. He still can't get the night Sienna almost spent with him out of his mind, and the chemistry between them is as undeniable as it was two years ago. He craves Sienna more than ever. And just like everything Lucas hungers for, he’s determined to have her.
Now, Lucas will do whatever it takes to lure Sienna into his bed, even if that means making a deal with her: ten days with him, playing by his rules, and he’ll hand over the deed to her grandmother’s home. Though she agrees to the arrangement, Sienna is conflicted. Because of her duty to her family. Because of promises she’s made to herself and a past that still haunts her. And as Lucas’s game of seduction continues, and Sienna is introduced to his dark, erotic world and even darker background, she realizes that at any moment, she could be devoured.
*This novel contains adult situations and content*
Sienna is forced back to her hometown in Nashville when she gets news that her Grandmother’s home is being foreclosed on. She will do everything in her power to save what used to be her childhood home. Anything. And she realizes she may have to make a deal with the devil to help her Grandmother. This time the devil is disguised as the sexy rock star sensation, Lucas Wolfe. The man who very rudely dismissed her from his bed a few years ago. The man who is also in the process of buying her Grandmother’s home.
“I’m here because some douchebag musician from California bought my Grandmother’s house. So you’ll understand why I’m saying this: Go fuck yourself, Lucas.”
Unfortunately for Sienna, she is still very much affected by Lucas even if she doesn’t want to be. Lucas is just as much affected by her…the one that got away. He comes up with a plan that she work for him for 10 days and, in return, he will give her Grandmother’s house back. Her first instinct is to tell him to “Fuck off,” but seeing the distress on her Grandmother’s face after a day of house hunting, she decides to take Lucas up on his offer.
"You're sending me training?" I finally ask, thrusting the memory of the near-sex experience with Lucas out of my head. "I am," he confirms. There's a smile in his voice. "So you're mine?" Fighting back fear and pride and something else that causes my heart to beat erratically, I tremble all over and say, "Yes, I'm all yours."
I loved Sienna’s character. She was a bit of a push-over with everyone EXCEPT Lucas. She was sweet and caring and just plain loveable. She had a troubled childhood and was practically raised by her Grandmother. I hated seeing her get take advantage of all the time in the beginning. Her boss, her brother, her fuck-up of a Mother…anyone and everyone. When she decides to work for Lucas though and their relationship blossoms, he helps her find her strength to always stand up for herself.
Which brings me to Lucas. He is mysterious, sexy, and dominate with a dark past that isn’t really touched on in this book. He can definitely be a dick, but that mainly has to do with a certain person from his past who keeps ruining things for him. I REALLY want to know what his big secret is. In fact, I was hoping it would come out at the end of the book, but I was very disappointed when it didn’t. The second book can’t come out fast enough!
I forgot to mention the HOT HOT HOT sex scenes! Holy balls they were good. Very steamy, detailed and blow your freakin’ mind.
I can’t think of anything I really disliked about this book except for the fact that I have to wait until the next book to find out more about Lucas’s past. Which, if I’m being honest, completely blows. That’s mainly because I’m impatient and hate the suspense. Thankfully there were no cliffhangers or that would have killed me! I highly recommend this book. It was an enjoyable read, again, not a life changer, but definitely worth reading.
