This was the first book by Connie Brockway I've read, and I was completely enthralled by it.My Dearest Enemy is enriched with witty, intellectual banter. In the case of Avery and Lily, language is a sport used as a form of foreplay. What I love about this book is that their difference of opinions and outlook in life comes in a large measure from a deep-seeded moral principal that can be found due to their complex and unusual background. Dominance had no place in their relationship. Respect, honor, and trust did.
