Story Overview:
Billionaire roughneck Knox Price finds himself twisted by desire for a yoga teacher in this new romance by the New York Times bestselling author of Dirty Scoundrel.

Knox Price has always fallen short in comparison to his brothers. Boone is the ambitious one. Clay is the nice one. Gage is the handsome one. And Knox? Well, he's the cynical one. The odd man out in the ultra-wealthy but rather unique Price family. It's not that Knox hates people--it's that humanity always disappoints him. When you become an oil-rich, Texan billionaire overnight, people treat you a certain way. Just once he'd like to meet someone that isn't dazzled by his wallet.

Then, he meets struggling yoga teacher Lexi Brandon. She's weird. She's unpredictable and tends to say strange things. She lurks in the bushes and dresses in all black. She loves when people cross the street to get away from her. Lexi's definitely not his type, but she's also the first one to ever truly see him and not just another rich, dirty Price.

And that's...fascinating. But how do you catch the interest of a woman who goes out of her way to be odd? When an unexpected surprise throws them both for a loop, Knox decides it's time to get down and dirty, abandon the rules, and be who he truly is--a bastard.

My Review:
Overall, I enjoyed this story. In fact, I've enjoyed all the stories in this series. This one is really different, though, just because Lexi is so different. She's goth and dark and really doesn't like people. And I LOVED the way that Knox got her and immediately related to her. They were really fun together. There were several laugh out loud moments in this story. 

But there were also several serious moments. Lexi has a stalker and hasn't had a great history with men in general. She sees that as a fault within her. She's definitely had a hard life and that's a lot of the reason why she has this tough girl, take no drama persona. She tries really hard to keep everyone at arm's length. 

But Knox is awesome just because he sees through all that. Knox is really almost the opposite of Lexi. He's constantly playing pranks and messing with other people. But he's also way observant. He sees everything...including Lexi. 

Like I already mentioned...I really, really liked the two of them together. Their dialogue and banter made this story fun to read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. 

Now, I'm ready for Gage....my heart hurts for him, but I liked the teeny tiny glimpse of maybe his HEA in this one.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
