One of Amazon's Best Romances of September
A 2017 RT Reviewer's Choice Nominee for Best Book of the Year and Reviewer's Choice Nominee for Best Contemporary Love and Laughter
She was a naive country girl. He was a billionaire's spoiled son. He was her first crush, her first heartbreak...and now her sworn enemy.
As Avalon Harwood's fortunes soared, Maximilian “Mac” Coltrane's plummeted, and he had to fight his way back to where they both began: Hellcat Canyon. Now Mac and Avalon will play dirty—in more ways than one—to get what they each want: the glorious old abandoned Coltrane mansion. But when Avalon snaps the house up at auction, she discovers there's something awfully familiar about the extremely hot caretaker...
Mac might have a heart of stone, and the abs to match, but Avalon—the dazzling girl whose heart was always too big and too reckless for her own good—was always his Kryptonite. And just like that, the stakes change: suddenly they're fighting not just for a house, but for a magic they tasted only once before and never since—long ago, with each other, at Devil's Leap.

They were meant for one another. Beautiful
Absolutely adored this book! Two fully realized characters in a moving and funny romantic reunion. Love the whole series, but this is my favorite.
I'm always looking for new sorbet and I like the premise of this one, so I took a chance. I liked Avalon and Mac well enough. She's loyal and hard working and he's a little cocky and stubborn. They have some decent chemistry and banter and I did enjoy how they pushed each other's buttons. Avalon's family was adorable and her niece easily stole every scene she was in. Plot wise, it was a bit slow moving, but it did make sense. I kept getting tripped up on repeat phrases and some scenes felt repetitive. By the end of the story, there was a good amount of growth for both of them and the grand gesture was fabulous. Overall, it was a cute and fairly quick read. I might look into other books in the series. **Huge thanks Avon Books for providing the arc free of charge**
