Billionaire roughneck Knox Price finds himself twisted by desire for a yoga teacher in this new romance by the New York Times bestselling author of Dirty Scoundrel.
Knox Price has always fallen short in comparison to his brothers. Boone is the ambitious one. Clay is the nice one. Gage is the handsome one. And Knox? Well, he's the cynical one. The odd man out in the ultra-wealthy but rather unique Price family. It's not that Knox hates people--it's that humanity always disappoints him. When you become an oil-rich, Texan billionaire overnight, people treat you a certain way. Just once he'd like to meet someone that isn't dazzled by his wallet.
Then, he meets struggling yoga teacher Lexi Brandon. She's weird. She's unpredictable and tends to say strange things. She lurks in the bushes and dresses in all black. She loves when people cross the street to get away from her. Lexi's definitely not his type, but she's also the first one to ever truly see him and not just another rich, dirty Price.
And that's...fascinating. But how do you catch the interest of a woman who goes out of her way to be odd? When an unexpected surprise throws them both for a loop, Knox decides it's time to get down and dirty, abandon the rules, and be who he truly is--a bastard.
I loved this book!!! I think it’s my favorite of the series! There were so many heart racing situations that I could literally feel my palms getting sweaty and my blood rushing in my veins. Clare’s ability at making you feel just as much of a part of the story as her characters is astounding! It is the main reason Clare will always be on my automatic buy list.
I think Lexi and Knox were my favorite characters because they were just so odd!!! Lexi was just so weird and funny and Knox was so willing to do whatever he could to make her laugh. I loved her antics and her sarcasm and I loved how Knox just wanted to mess with everyone around him, it didn’t matter if they were strangers or his family. I loved how she embraced her weirdness and made sure everyone knew how she felt. She was just so much fun to read! I did feel like reaching through the pages and strangling her a few times because of her stubbornness but I got over it. I loved it- did I mention that?
And Knox! God he was soooo sweet! It was so funny reading about all the strange ways he tried to woo Lexi. I would definitely have a hard time having a date a hunted hotel and a graveyard but it worked for them. He was just everything every woman wants in a man! They were the best odd couple! The jokes about Knox being younger than Lexi were laugh out loud funny! He was just one of those guys that wanted love and family and happiness. That’s all that mattered to him.
I do wish there was more interactions with the other characters but like the other books in this series the main focus was on Lexi and Knox. That was ok but I do wish we got to see the others more.
This book was fast paced and so sweet! I loved Lexi and Knox! This book was just the book I needed to read right now. It was loving and steamy and had all the right ingredients to make it a perfect contemporary romance. Sooo good!!!
