4.5 starsI didn't expect to enjoy this book so much. I saw some other readers thought of Sarah as a doormat; I did not. She was self sacrificing with her younger sister but she basically raised her and it actually made her hatred for Alex and his family much more believable. The story begins when Sarah's eighteen years old sister has just died while giving birth to her baby boy. Alex Terzakis is there at the hospital demanding complete custody of his new nephew. Alex believes that Sarah's sister had been nothing but a gold digger, sleeping around and looking for an easy meal ticket. The battle is on between two strong characters. I just loved the way Sarah tore into Alex. She gave as good as she got and he deserved it.
