Raised to rule, bred to lead and weaned on a diet of ruthless ambition. In a world of haves and have nots, my family has it all, and I want nothing to do with it.
My path takes me far from home and paints me as the black sheep. At odds with my father, I’m determined to build my own empire. I have rules, but Lennix Hunter is the exception to every one of them. From the moment we meet, something sparks between us. But my family stole from hers and my father is the man she hates most. I lied to have her, and would do anything to keep her. Though she tries to hate me, too, the inexorable pull between us will not be denied.
And neither will I.

I really wanted to love this book more, I really did. I had such high hopes when seeing all the great reviews from fellow book bloggers, so I decided to grab it up and start reading. And this is my FIRST Kennedy Ryan. So I definitely had high expectations. But to be honest this book was a struggle. I didn’t even finish it all the way through , I did get through most of it and yeah many things wrong with it. First is the romance, there was NO chemistry that I felt being built between the two characters. I just did’t connect with the story in any way and I think the main issue I had was the fact that this book was pretty much a political point that REPLACES the actual romance. Look I have no issue if you want to insert some political issues here and there in a story BUT it should never actually be replacing what I am looking for….a sexy romance romp. It just seemed like a whole Greta address for the whole book, it was pretty heavy and consistent all the way through and got so tedious and I just couldn’t take it. I still plan on read some other books by this author but I read romance for romance and not for a political missile field of knowledge dumps. There was so much potential for this story so it just saddens me that I couldn’t enjoy it like I wanted to.
