Mel's thoughts...

Omfg what in the ever loving faccccckkkk !!! Excuse my lack of composure here but I’ve just finished this book and I’m reeling. It was bad enough that I’m my hear was in my throat at the end of book 1 but now !!! Ahhhhh. This is the continuation of Marlo and Ray’s story. Enemies to lovers and back to enemies again. These two are in what seems to be this never ending cycle between love and hate. Emotions are high in this one, chemistry is hot and that wall that Ray has built is coming down slowly but surely. I loved every bit of this book. It was exiting, entertaining and exhilarating. Marlo and Ray are fire and ice and I’m not sure I would want them any other way. And this ending, I mean it’s a trilogy so I knew we would end with a fluffy but come on !!!! Did you have to kill me with this one. Damn RVD !!! Why you do me like that.

About The Book

I wanted revenge.

And I got it in the best way possible.

Ray has always driven me insane, now that we're older, all I want is to make her feel the pain she put me through for four years.

And then suddenly, everything shifts and I realize I just want her,

It's bad enough that I'm the camp director — her boss.

Our love is equal to our hate for one another and the burning tension between us refuses to relent. If anything it's gotten worse.

I push her.

She pushes back.

Passion, whether it be born of love or hate — is a powerful beast, one I'm refusing to tame.

Marlo and Ray's story continues…
