4.5 stars

I enjoyed this installment in the series. One of my favorite kinds of stories is enemies-to-lovers, and this delivered on all the high points of the plot device. Derek and Hayden have terrific chemistry, and it's obvious that the "hate" between them is actually not dislike or meanness. They come away from their arguments sharper, and the heat between them is great.

There were a few things that felt a bit cliched at times, such as Hayden's assistant. I really wish she hadn't been part of the story--I'm not a big fan of women who are only in a story so they can pressure their male friends to make a move, and she was the most irritating variety of that kind of character. However, she wasn't in it much, and she was gone by the time the men worked things through for themselves.

The flow, pacing, and heat level were just right for the setting and characters. This was a nice, steamy read.

*I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review from Inked Rainbow Reads*
