Lex is an up and coming fashion designer who is trying to make her own name in the world. She finds out that her fabric supplier stopped her shipment and she decides to visit the supplier in person, to see what she can do to get her shipment. She just never thought that her whole world would change as soon as she met the owner of the fabric company.
Masi is a prince who is used to a certain playboy lifestyle. He is used to getting his own way and never had anyone argue with him. That was until he met a certain female. Once he met her and started talking to her, his whole world changed. He always thought that he would never fall in love again. He always thought that he would have people fall at his feet and do whatever he wanted. But he never thought that he would meet his match.
Lex and Masi butted heads from the moment they met. She wanted things her way and he just wanted to get her into his bed. Lex tried her hardest to get her fabric because it was what she needed to saver her company. Masi wanted her to help him with his new designs so that he can be a part of the competition for female fashion. Lex and Masi bargained that she would help him if he would let her have her fabric.
Lex also showed up on red carpet events with Masi because he convinced her that it would help promote both of their clothing lines. Lex always shied away from the cameras but agreed because it would be the best for her line. At one event, Lex got into a fist fight with an exlover of Masi’s. It was then all over the news and tabloids. So Lex decided that she needed to go back home and do her fashion show. She also decided that she needed time away from everything to straighten her life out. She knew she was leaving her love behind but did not know where Masi stood in their relationship. All she knew was that she needed to leave.
While she was in NY with her fashion show trying to recover from the tabloids, Masi finally realized what his life would be without Lex. He finally figured out that he was deeply on love with her and could not let her go again. So he went to NY and went to her fashion show and completely surprised her by proposing at her fashion show. Lex finally realized that he loved her as much as she loved him. So she accepted his proposal.
The whole book was about two stubborn people who thought what they knew were best. It’s was nice to read about them getting over their own personal stubbornness to be together. It made me hope for a good love life of my own.
I fell in love with this book from the very beginning. I loved the way the author wrote her characters. She made them both stubborn and able to stand on their own feet separately. The author made strong characters which I fell completely in love with.
I am looking forward to reading more books by this author.
