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.

 

1thoughtsSienna ran away from Lucas two years ago after they almost hooked up. She was the wardrobe assistant and was working on his music video at the time when everything happened. However, after he humiliated her and kicked her out of his house, she cut all ties with Lucas and tried to move on with life. Only neither of them have forgotten the other person and when Lucas unknowingly buys Sienna’s foreclosed house, they are reunited.

I enjoyed reading this story but I feel like you have to read the novella to really understand their history together. Yes, the author goes over it throughout the story, but going in knowing what happened between these two, really helps understand why they are acting the way that they are.

Lucas is still just as demanding at he was in the novella and Sienna is just as stubborn around him. Lucas is used to people submitting around him but Sienna seems to submit to everyone but him. So he works out a plan to sign the house over to Sienna if she becomes his personal assistant for 10 days. The majority of the story is a cat and mouse game. They both want each other but Lucas wants her to submit to him before they go any farther and Sienna refuses to be used by him again. I found the story to be predictable but I still enjoyed it. There were a quite a bit of intimate scenes between this two that would almost rank it as an erotica. So don’t go into this expecting a sweet love story. Lucas is a domineering jerk and none of their sex scenes are behind closed doors.
