Some of the events were too convenient or contrived. He divorced one wife, and the other died. He told his daughters that only one of them will inherit everything, depending on which daughter is the most successful on her own. Lexi opened a day spa. The source calls the loan demanding she pay it off in 21 days.
She agrees. This means she must sleep with him and introduce him to the right people, including politicians and potential wives. He owns businesses in the car industry, is into racing, and is extremely wealthy. Ten years earlier, Lexi was attracted to Cruz and spent a night with him. She liked him a lot, but when he saw that he took her virginity, he was scared. When she saw the look on his face, she said something cruel to protect her pride.
He left and they never had any further contact until now. A second story involves someone wanting to hurt the Titan family. This generates bad publicity for Jed, Skye, and Lexi about illegal activities and a lawsuit.
Under Her Skin
None of this is true, but false statements are being made. There is nothing new, surprising, or exciting. Dialogue is unremarkable. Some of the conflicts were too convenient or contrived. More than once Lexi goes against her feelings and lies which creates false conflict. Cruz wants a connection with her so he attends a charity event.
He just happens to overhear her banker discussing her financial problem which solves his problem — a little too convenient. Cruz is not likeable. He is arrogant, insensitive, and cruel to Lexi. I had trouble with the ending. Cruz conveniently changes his views of love and commitment — just in time for a happy ending.

In my opinion, changing his views needed more time, events, and emotional development. I was unhappy that the second story about someone trying to hurt the Titan family was not finished. There are unanswered questions. I assume this story will continue into the sequels, which I do not plan to read. DATA: Story length: pages.

Lexi: "I am a rich girl trying to make it on my own with some serious Daddy issues. My bank just told me I need to come up with 2 million dollars in three weeks or I lose my whole business. What ever shall I do?!?! I know I took your virginity and your car and then ran off, but you look mighty fine and I just HAPPENED to overhear you need 2 m This book had some good points, but I just really have a hard time with straight up romance lately.
I need your old money status, so how about I pay you 2 million dollars to marry me for one year? Win win, right? I am offended. I will take your money but only for a 6 month engagement. Lexi avoids having sex with Cruz by screwing with her birth control to get her period early. I saw were THAT was heading too. Lexi gets a kitten.

While they are on the road to happiness, many things get in the way: the revelation that Cruz has a child, a madman out to ruin Lexi and her family, Cruz's fear of turning into his abusive father. Eventually, Lexi feels that enough is enough and her love for Cruz is not strong enough for the both of them, so she leaves. Lexi tells Cruz that she's pregnant when he comes to see her and he leaves her. After some well-meaning advice, Cruz finally goes to Lexi, tells her he loves her, and they live happily ever after.
Well, until the next tragedy strikes Lexi's family. I absolutely love Lexi. She's determined, passionate, intelligent, sarcastic, sweet. I loved how good she was with Cruz's daughter, Kendra, and I liked when they started talking and hanging out. I knew she was going to end up being pregnant.
I just knew it.
