You can’t hide from love…or revenge.

Dodge Loving wants revenge…and he’s about to get it. On the cusp of closing a multi-billion-dollar luxury resort deal, Dodge can’t afford for anything go wrong. But then a fiery redhead shows up, the paparazzi hot on her trail, and throws his world into chaos. He has to get rid of her. Immediately.

Harper Conner just wants to be left alone, but after slapping her cheating senator ex-husband during a televised press conference, she’s a hot commodity. The ultra exclusive resort in Wyoming seems like the ideal place to hide-and work-so there’s no way she’s letting the Type-A jerk who runs the place fire her.

Despite the animosity sparking between them, Dodge and Harper can’t keep their hands to themselves.

This thing between them can’t happen. It won’t. But his mother has other ideas…and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make sure Harper and Dodge fall in love.

Michelle's Review

Dodge Loving wants revenge on his grandfather, who disowned his mother after not only becoming pregnant before wedlock, but falling in love with a black man.  Dodge and his family owns The Retreat Spa and Resort, it’s ultra exclusive and very private for those who just want to get away from it all in Colorado.  He wants the resort to go globally and put his grandfather out of business.  Dodge’s may not get what he wants if the ever growing paparazzi keeps lurking around and he doesn’t need them knowing that he has an aging rock star just out of rehab trying to relax.  What he didn’t expect was Harper Connor.


Harper is at The Retreat cataloguing some cowboy diaries that May Loving (Dodge’s mom) had found.  May is also a bit of a matchmaker, she’s destined to marry all three of her sons, starting with Dodge. Harper is hiding out there also dodging the media after her ex-husband Senator was caught cheating.  Her run in with Dodge was none too pleasant since he found out she was the cause the paparazzi hanging around.  Harper has a new mantra going, she will no longer be anyone’s doormat and especially Dodge’s.


This was a very quick read and pretty predictable with what was going on between Dodge and Harper.  I did like that Harper would stand up to Dodge, I just wanted her to play more hard to get with him.  Dodgewas a real ass in the beginning, but I warmed up to him.  The sexy times were pretty hot, I just wanted more of the story.  I guess if you’re looking for a quick read, then this is the book for you.  This is my first time read an Avery Flynn novel hopefully not my last.
