Piper Dawson has spent a lifetime living by other people's rules.
She's worked hard to get what she wants--a residency at her first choice hospital--and no one will ever tie her down again, not even her severe yet incredibly sexy supervisor, Dr. Alexander "Ace" Lennox.
Ace is done with love. He's had his heart shattered, and he never wants to go there again. But when he's inexplicably enticed by the sexy, tattooed woman with blue streaks in her hair and a perpetual smile on her lips, he figures that maybe he can keep it to just sex.
The problem? He thrives on control, and Piper dances just around the edges of it.
But when they're together, control is the first thing to go...
I really love these series that are brought together by a common theme but are written by different authors. It’s a great way to get to know authors I might not have read before, and that’s definitely the case with Claiming the Enemy by Lauren Hawkeye. Not to mention the fact that I’m a total sucker for these Brazen titles.
This is a classic case of enemies to lovers as resident physician Piper pushes all of Ace’s buttons the wrong way. And the right way 😉 I was surprised by how much backstory Hawkeye packed in here. Ace lost his wife to a drunk driver, so it was understandable why he was only interested in NSA sex. I thought Piper was a little bitchy at first, but I understand why she had the attitude she did. Ace and Piper were definite opposites attract on the surface, but their brokenness bringing them together made total sense. The sexy times were steamy hot, the chemistry was intense, and the story was fast-paced and satisfying. A fun read!
