A smart, practical girl. A handsome, vengeful man. The passionate retelling of a marriage gone wrong.

When Dakota walked out of his life, she took Samuel Seaforth’s heart with her. He’s hollow inside, and she made him that way. A decade later, he’s out to break her. What he doesn’t know is that she’s already broken.
From the boardroom to the bedroom, they’re locked in a battle of wits and desire. One of them will break. One of them will pay. Both of them want to win. Neither of them expects to fall in love…again.

Review by Cindy
Dakota, a girl from the wrong side of town, meets Sam, a wealthy and privileged boy, who is destined to follow in his father’s footsteps. They fall in love and marry two weeks after their high school graduation. Sam is then disowned by his father. Two years into their marriage, Sam’s father blackmails Dakota into divorcing Sam. It isn’t until 10 years later, that Dakota and Sam meet again.
The story is written in one of my favorite styles of POV by both Dakota and Sam, from the past and present views. As a reader, I completely fell in love with them. I could feel how much they loved each other and how hurt they were from the divorce. I felt bad for Dakota and I just wanted to yell at her to tell Sam the truth. I also understood Sam’s hurt and why he wanted to return the pain by hurting her, but you could still tell their love for one another never died.
Each chapter also had a hint of suspense, so all I wanted to do is keep reading. This is book one in a two book series, so it does end with a cliffhanger. And I will definitely be buying book two to see what happens between Dakota and Sam.
