This was a fast, hot read.
Didn’t like it so much because the reason for him to go after her is just bullshit.
And I don’t get why he ever thought that that was a good idea.

The H's POV was horrible - immature, small-minded, vindictive. I'd expect a 48 yr old succesful man to be wise, resourceful, broad-minded but not the case here. The h, her dad and friends were adorable though, and admirable. The sex scenes were also hot and I liked that the H was good to the h in bed and in his own small ways.

3.5 stars! Recommended for readers who like older H's, assh*le H's and grovelling H's.

Def one of Sam's better books. No OW drama - no scenes, no memories, no mention of OW besides the fact that he didn't have a problem attracting them - and the heroine wasn't a virgin. ...more
3.5 stars

If you enjoy a storyline with a jerk who redeems himself, then this is for you. I personally like it, as long as they're is good grovel.

Alaric was a real jerk. He set his sights on Bella in order to seek revenge on her father. He was very dismissive of her when looking at pictures stating he could imagine she was someone else when he had sex with her. ...real peach, huh? Upon seeing her though, he instantly felt something. Never having feelings like that before, he kept pushing them ba
What a shitty book. The hero was probably the stupidest person I've ever read about and the heroine was not great either. And of course he's a manwhore who had women on rotation and she's this shy misunderstood curvy girl who was celibate for 3 years. I think I'm gonna quit Sam crescent for awhile. ...more

When Alaric feels that his business rival needs to be taught a lesson, he develops a plan to get his revenge. Putting himself in the path of his daughter, Alaric turns on the charm with the hopes to get Bella to fall head over heels before he breaks her heart.

The Enemy's daughter is a love story that pairs a much older Hero with a heroine that is young enough to be his daughter. Alaric at first comes across as this hard-ass older businessman. A bit ruthless, but as he attempts to woo Bella, the

Hero was 48 Heroine was 25! I loved that and I loved that hero was a very successful ruthless businessman with a revenge plan but Bella changed him and made him a better man. Instead of revenge he now wanted love!

"The Enemy's Daughter" is the story of Bella and Alaric.

In this tale of revenge, our older H decides to get revenge from his enemy, by seducing his much younger daughter and discarding her. He goes out of his way to plan the retribution, from adopting a puppy to finding out all her interests, slowly wooing her with his charm. The h is a sweet, curvy and confident woman, who falls for the sexy H's charms. They bang enacting the whole Kamasutra, the truth is revealed, and after minimal groveling t

Hot fast safe read
NOT an insta Love. He is at first set out for revenge, slowly falls in love with her. Then relies he's an asshole and is fucked because at this point he's crazy in love and still has not told her the truth.
( he only lies about his name and job)
HEA and epilogue
No OW/OW Drama
Both not virgins
Big age gap
H was a playboy, no detailed scenes of past women
It was pretty meh...Hero wasn't alpha enough. ...more
Alaric Patterson is furious that his competitor stole away the contract he was pursuing. Deciding he needs to retaliate, he decides revenge in an unconditional way is the best way to make the man hurt. Alaric pursues Bella Reed, his enemy's daughter.

Bella is a full figured beautiful woman, she just doesn't see herself like that. When Alaric expresses interest in her, Bella is expecting the other shoe to drop. Every man she has been involved with has been after her fathers money or some other sel

A fair 3 I think.
Rather better than the last Sam Crescent I read, To Claim His Girl but by no means perfect - marginally better editing shown, somewhat better scene continuity and exposition, colossally better plotline and characterisation (though for a 48 year old man Alaric read about a decade younger). It was a pleasant Mills & Boon type revenge plot so of course I enjoyed that, Sam can write good sex scenes as we are aware, and I would classify this as being fairly much back to the Sam Cresc

This was another book that I started and then stopped and moved onto something else. I'm just sick of the whole pretending to be someone you're not, the other person finds out almost at the end of the book and then BAM everything gets fixed in the last 5% of the book. Alaric Patterson is a 48 year old businessman, who is very wealthy and he believes Jackson Reed is his nemesis. When Jackson gets a deal that Alaric wanted and was working on for himself Alaric decides it's time to get revenge. Bel ...more

I really enjoyed this book! I devoured it in one sitting. I just have to say: I thought Alaric was an a**hole for most of the book. I know this sounds mean but when his plan backfired on him I couldn’t help but feel smug. I liked Alaric and Bella as a couple. I liked Bella, she truly deserved love. She was a good person. Although I hated Alaric in parts, I couldn’t help but like him. I could honestly start to see his guilt and his love for Bella.
I couldn’t help but chuckle when Alaric

This book was an okay read. I usually pick up Sam Crescent's book when I have nothing to read or when I need something short to read before I go to bed. This book is a tad ridiculous but I loved that the heroine's plain and how the Hero come to see her as attractive... gradually. If that makes sense? ...more

An Intense, Revenge Tinged Older Man/Younger Woman Tale...

While reading Sam Crescent's book, "Daughter's Best Friend" I realized that not only was it the second of a series, but that I had read it backwards! This one, "The Enemy's Daughter" is actually the first book, one that takes you through Bella and Alaric's story and sets the stage for all of the events in book two. However, despite my reading order snafu I was happy to find this one to be an equally sophisticated, far more serious take on

Alaric has one thing to do to his "rival" Jackson revenge!!! Jackson has made him look like a fool taking away his contract. Now he has a plan he is going to make his daughter Bella fall in love with him and break her heart.

The plan is set he bought a puppy to go along with this plan it was a piece of cake. Until he met Bella in person she was a sweetheart, it started off awkward between the two teasing and playfulness..

ARC received in exchange for an honest review

Alaric Patterson is powerful business man, but he just lost an important deal and to get back at the person that took that from him he decided to date his daughter, make her fall in-love with him and then he's going to break her.

Bella Reed is an ordinary plain girl who lives a normal life despite her fathers wealth working at a veterinary office. She is sweet, caring and a bit of a loner.

So when Alaric meets her, he can't understand all these feelings

Sam Crescent is passionate about fiction. She loves a good erotic romance and so it only made sense for her to spread her wings and start writing. She began writing in 2009 and finally got that first acceptance in 2011 by Total-E-Bound.
She loved creating new characters and delving into the worlds that she creates. When she’s not panicking about a story or arguing with a character, she can be foun
