If I ever caught on fire, Dahlia Muñoz would fan the flames with a smile.
So, when she returns to Lake Wisteria, I fully intend to avoid the interior designer.
At least until my meddling mother exploits my savior complex.
The faster I help Dahlia find her creative spark, the sooner she will leave town.
But while I was busy getting rid of Dahlia, I overlooked one potential issue.
What happens if I want her to stay?
People say the devil has many faces, but I know only one.
Julian Lopez—my childhood rival and family frenemy.
I vow to steer clear of him while recovering from my broken engagement, but then the billionaire makes an irresistible offer.
Renovate a historic house together and triple our profits.
Our temporary truce becomes compromised as we face years’ worth of denied attraction and mixed emotions.
Giving into our desire is inevitable…but falling in love?
That isn’t part of the plan.

♡ NO third act break up!!
♡ good banter
♡ some of the best tropes
- I had difficulty getting into the story because of the narration. Listening to the audiobook made it worse, especially when the narrators mispronounced basic words.
- Towards the end, I found myself getting bored. While I appreciated that there was no dramatic breakup, the exciting moments were resolved too quickly, and some parts dragged on for too long.
- I wanted more banter and tension between the characters. Once they got together, everything moved too fast.
- I didn’t feel that Dahlia’s depression was portrayed accurately, and it didn’t contribute much to the story. It felt forced and didn’t add depth to her character. Although it was mentioned frequently at the beginning, it often slipped my mind because it didn’t feel realistic.
I have read part of Lauren Asher’s Dirty Air Series which I did enjoy, but I had a similar experience with those as well. They took too long for me to get into, which is why I never finished the series.
Having gone into reading this book with expectations similar to the Dirty Air Series, I was neither disappointed nor surprised.

I am intrigued about Rafa’s story with Ellie / Lorenzo Vittori with Lily so I will definitely be reading the rest of this series!
