When her father’s death leaves her drowning in debt, scandal and loneliness, Lily Harris doesn’t protest when his business partner steps in to help—until Jake Tolliver reveals the last promise he made to her father. Although Jake’s as compelling to look at as a marble statue—and stirs a frighteningly powerful desire within her—there’s no way Lily will agree to be his socially acceptable bride while he continues to bed his string of beautiful women—not without getting him to agree to a deal of her own first. Jake didn’t get his reputation as a feral hunter by not going after what he wants. Right now he wants Lily, and her lack of options puts her exactly where he’s wanted her from the first moment he laid eyes on her. Jake’s not above making Lily think she’s having it her way if that’s what it’ll take to have his way in the end. But once he grows tired of playing beast to her beauty, he’s not above changing the rules of the game until they’re both playing for the same prize.

3.5.the first half of the book I thought Jake was just an asshole. It read like a 90s Harlequin - hero comes in and tells heroine he's going to marry her and that's all there is. He pushed and prodded, relentlessly. No matter her feelongs about it. The second half redeemed the book, IMO. Jake still ...
