Alpha billionaire businessman, Max Savage has had a thing for Lucy Dare for as long as he can remember but he values his long standing friendship with her brothers too much to cross the line. When Lucy shows up at an engagement party on the arms of another man, Max doesn’t like the changes he sees in her and vows to make her his own.

*each book can stand alone for your reading enjoyment 

I had a hard time with this story.  I didn't really connect with Lucy and Max as a couple.  And I didn't really like Lucy by herself.  I thought there was WAY to much insecurities between what was supposed to be two "alpha" personalities.  

Max has always had a thing for Lucy but decided to marry someone he KNEW that he couldn't love the way she wanted.  Lucy doesn't let people get close because of the death of her parents when she was a teenager.  But when Max got engaged she moved to L.A. so she didn't have to see him (with his wife) anymore... blahhhhh 

I thought this book felt rushed.  Granted it was a novella, but you can tell that it was one.  There was gaps in time that nothing really happened.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5
