When Rose Jensen’s grandfather dies, he leaves her enough money to save her parents’ failing business and get her through UCLA. The only catch – she has to marry Lee Montenegro, the infuriating half-Spanish, all-playboy transfer. Rose and Lee’s grandfathers were fast friends, and betrothed their grandchildren to each other.
Lee wants the money to run from his suffocating family, and turns his full burning charisma on Rose, but she won’t give in. She’ll never marry someone she doesn't love, and who doesn't love her. But memories of a mysterious boy in her childhood haunt her, and Lee insists they know each other. With her parent’s pressures mounting, her scholarship slipping, and Lee’s advances heating up with more than just money-lust, Rose is torn between doing the right thing for her family, and doing the right thing for her heart.

Oh hell I’m not even going to beat around the bush you can read the synopsis and get the jist of what this book is about. I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN. It’s the middle of the night and I’m tore all to pieces with how it ended. But I had to know. There was no way I could go to sleep not knowing what would happen between Rose and Lee. I am heartbroken.
At first I didn’t know what to think about Rose but the more I read the more I saw that she was simply and insecure person that was very goal oriented and loyal to those she loved. Then Lee comes around and I knew I was a goner for him. Rose, not so much. She couldn’t stand him and thought he was nothing but a playboy. Why would he want her?
When Rose finds out about her grandfather’s will she is angry and more determined to stay away from Lee. What she doesn’t know is they have a history. One she doesn’t remember. She thinks this is all a game to him.
“I won’t bind you to me with old me with old memories and should-have-beens.” ~Lee
Like I said I knew I would love Lee early on in the book. Well I did all the way through and my heart is broken right now for him and Rose.
There are other things afoot though. A greedy father. A scheming ex. When faced with possible deceit Rose throws it all away thinking Lee lied to her about everything. Will she realize that she was deceived by someone other than the person that she thought in time? Or will she lose the person she loves to others whims?
“I love you, Rose Jenson. Don’t you ever fucking doubt that again. No matter what happens from now on – never.” ~Lee
