Review by Darcie Sherrick
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 book is pretty intense! It starts off in the muck of things when Sienna has to go back to her home town when her Grandmother's home is being taken away. It is fairly easy to connect with Sienna from the start. While her family problems aren't something you see everyday, a slacker brother with a drinking problem and unpaid loans to his sister, and a mother who is in prison, it's not hard to feel bad for the situation she is in.
During the court hearing for her Grandma's formal eviction, Sienna catches a glimpse of the man who is pushing the eviction forward and while she doesn't see his face right away, she is instantly attracted to the rest of him. He eventually turns around and she sees his face knowing then exactly who he is. She has a past with him and is not happy to see him. You feel their connection through all the arguments and Snow does a great job of building up the tension, innocent and otherwise. They met years before, he is the tattoed, bad boy in a band and he had hurt her pride.
I often felt Sienna's anger towards Lucas, and enjoyed watching her become more open to Lucas and the way he feels about her while throwing in some pretty sexy and steamy encounters that help you get a better glimpse of who Lucas is. Just like in every relationship, you have to compromise and this book really shows you that.
While the book can be frustrating at times, it redeems itself by keeping you connected to the characters and the storyline. It is one heck of a ride, I can't wait for the next one.
