How the tables had turned

Once the boy who could do no good, Declan Gates was now the billionaire who could do no wrong. And blue-blood Lily Wharton suddenly needed his help in buying back her ancestral home. But Declan had no plans to succumb to Lily's heartfelt pleas. He'd keep her house, take her business and bed her—something he'd dreamed of for years.

But would one touch of her warm lips on his skin cause his ruthless plans to spiral dizzily out of control?

My rating:

I tried. I swear I tried. I did my best, honest, but I just couldn't bring myself to read further than the second chapter. I even tried reading the last one and the epilogue, but it just didn't grab my attention.

From what I did read, the hero was your template Harlequin/Silhouette male, tall, dark, handsome and with a "grudge" against the heroine. But it was she that pulled the brake on my reading experience. She struck me as a frigid little miss goody-two-shoes and there's nothing worse than that in my book.

Maybe I'll pick it up again at a later time, when I'm in the mood for some mental self-flagellation.
