Hate: to dislike intensely or passionately; feel extreme aversion for or extreme hostility toward.
Scarlet Jennings, the preacher’s daughter who lived across the street, was a royal, uptight pain in my ass. When she looked at me, she saw a college quarterback asshole with rocks for brains, but she didn’t have a single word for what was happening between us.
When we were forced to ride together every single day that summer, there was definitely some dislike going on. Extreme hostility was a given, considering that we were spending so much time together in close quarters.
One night of bed-breaking, body-shattering, lose-your-voice-from-screaming passion had surprised us both, but it was only just the beginning…
I LOVE Alex Lucian’s writing. When he hit the scene with Tempting, I knew, *KNEW* that he was an author to keep an eye on. His second book Beguiling is no different. I absolutely loved it.
The writing, the characters, the storyline…impeccable. Beguiling was just as intoxicating as Tempting was but on a lighter note. Where Tempting was more forbidden and a little bit darker, Beguiling was lighter, a little more comical with some fun, witty banter thrown in. (And who doesn’t love some witty banter between the hero and heroine…NO ONE THAT is WHO!)
Beguiling is a hate to love story. Where the boy chases the girl. Leo, the starting college quarterback, and Scarlet, the straight-laced preacher’s daughter, who knew that hate could be so hot. The boy is persistent that is for sure, and Scarlet is just as obstinate to not let Leo crack her hardened exterior, and he only has 6 weeks to accomplish his goal.
Beguiling was a story that I dove into head first, and didn’t really come up for air until I was finished.
I fell in love with Leo and his charm.
I loved Scarlet and her firecracker personality.
I can’t wait to see where else Alex takes us.
He has proven that he can write a fabulous story, and I will follow him where ever he goes to get more of his words.
Alex Lucian is an author living on the eastern coast of the United States who appreciates being anonymous, for personal and professional reasons. Tempting is Alex's first novel.
