Shepard Prescott is an entitled rich boy, currently a Junior at college and along with his friend Gabe and cousin Tristan, he runs an illegal gambling house for the students. It’s here at the mini casino that he wins feisty Jade Frost in a game of blackjack.
Jade is not happy that her boyfriend offered her up as a winning prize, especially when Shep makes it clear that he is planning on claiming his winnings. Shep has never met a girl who is willing to stand up to him before and her strong personality along with her stunning red hair and beautiful features, she is looking like she may be the one to tame his ways.
Rich boy/Poor girl plus enemies to lovers are personal favourites of mine, and whilst I did really enjoy reading this one, I felt something was missing to give it the wow factor.
There was great banter, lots of hot sex and it was fun. I just missed a more deeper emotional connection between the characters. Saying that, I really liked both characters, I love it when a man realises that having a good woman is so much better than whoring around, and I love to watch a strong man fall. This was definitely the case here.
“I’ve been a shallow asshole most of my life.
A product of my environment, I’d say.
But there is always that defining moment when a man decides he wants to change his ways.”
Overall I would recommend this to NA lovers, I am definitely looking forward to both Gabe and Tristans stories.
This is the first in a series of standalones.
