It was the kind of relationship where I invested more than I had to spare.
My soul, burnt embers in the aftermath.
He burned me.
She was a glorified waitress in the skies.
But one day, there he sat, gazing intently at her, ready to set everything ablaze once more.
Dante wanted her. Again.
Sure, she’d play along…but this time, it was his turn.
She was breaking him.
MAJOR heartache. MAJOR passion. And a strong heroine with a painful past! I’m obsessed with Scarlett and Dante!!
“Love is War” is a great description of this second chance, lovers-to-enemies story. BREAKING HIM was nothing that I expected. I need the second book yesterday! I must know more about Scarlett and Dante!!
This story has very much of a Tristan-and-Danika feel to it. The chemistry between Scarlett and Dante is almost so real, you can feel it leap off the pages. Why is Scarlett so ANGRY about everything? At first, her prickly attitude kept me at a distance, but once I learned more about her character and her background, I absolutely fell in love with her and was rooting for her. And Dante, well he seems like the perfect guy at first and I just know that he will end up doing the right thing. He and Scarlett MUST be together! They are meant for each other!! Do you hear me, Author Lady?!
The secondary characters are all fantastic, and are an integral part of the story. Ms. Lilley does a great job of describing the social hierarchy of small town life and how stifling it can be for those who do not “fit in”. I literally read this book in one sitting and cannot wait for the continuation of Scarlett and Dante’s story. Ms. Lilley has once again created an absolutely unforgettable couple whose passion and chemistry burned through every page.

Men are punching bags, and I have a hell of a right hook.”
