In this book Ellie is concerned her best friend, Penny, is about to marry a man who she thinks is only after her for her money. So she sets up a weekend in her brother's friend's house in order to expose to her what a rat he is. Unfortunately, the brother's friend, Gideon, is a man she has always loved, but never told because of his reputation as a womanizer.

As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that Gideon has real problems from a difficult childhood and that Ellie's interest in helping her friend might not be as altruistic as originally believed. This forms the backdrop to a passionate and powerful love story between Ellie and Gideon.

This book keep me up last night because I wanted to find out the ending. The characters appealed to me, they both came across as very real with issues and problems and I especially liked the fact that Ellie, despite her issues in the book, wasn't a Cinderella waiting to be rescued. She was sarky and often said the wrong thing, regretting it afterwards.

The love scenes in this book are very well written and emotional. Overall, I really enjoyed this story, I liked the author's voice, which was strong, and the plot line that didn't go in the way you thought it would. Certainly I didn't see Penny's secret coming!

I could not put down this book, I was so keen to see how the story developed between Ellie and Gideon. The love scenes were electric and the characters were rounded, interesting and imperfectly right. Can't wait for the next book!

From the moment we meet Ellie and Gideon, the chemistry leaps off the pages. This is one fun read, as they pair up in order to save a friend from making what they see as a mistake. It's so lovely reading a book where the hero and heroine need to work together in order to solve a problem -- and heck, spend their time in a gorgeous country pile to boot. I couldn't put it down as I didn't want to leave these two without knowing they were HEA. A fab, rollickingly good read! I hope this debut author brings out more like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reviewed by Desere Steenberg 7 Jan. 2013
By Desere Steenberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Ellie is in a slump, has been for the last six months. Her fiancée left her for another hotter woman. And all this after she had their future all planned out. The only thing that she can focus her attention on for now is helping her best friend from making a mistake.

And for help she goes to her brothers best friend Gideon DeLancy, Mr. I am hotter than the sun and I burn up the sheets with any willing woman,and then discard them for another.

Gideon knows he will live to regret it but to keep Ellie from trouble and as a silent favour to her family that took him under their wings. He goes with the flow and they head out to his estate or rather should I say castle as it is really no ordinary home.

Only once he and Ellie are in confined places and situations together neither one can seem to keep their hands of each other. Gideon makes her feel like a real woman again, after her ex degraded her on every level he could think of. They both decide after their return home sex is off the table.

But once they leave and get back to the city, it proves easier said then done. And yes you guessed it a series of events follow that for me as reader had me rooting for these two all the way.

The author did a brilliant job at taking two lost characters both needing to find peace and come to terms with the stones life has thrown at them, and brought them together with a bang!

What was interesting was that the author not only pulled the characters past into the mix to show me as reader the reasoning as to just exactly why both have issues that they very clearly need to sort out in order to really move on, but she incorporated the little things such as Ellie crying when she sees a child or the reasoning behind her baggy clothes. Not many authors focus on these and sometimes for me as reader I need to try to pick up on those by using imagination, as you only get the reason why the character is so touchy or guarded. But not really all the situations or comments that set their emotions off.

But this author gave it all, and more by carefully taking me as reader on a journey of self discovery, letting go of the past and finding what you have been looking for is right in front of you.

The book can also be a real eye opener to readers that have suffered verbal and emotional abuse. The book had passion and a level of emotion that brought me to tears.

The dialogue was at times a little bit funny but most of the time really serious. The author also really gave the book that "love set in the country side" feeling with stunning descriptions, she certainly has a very vivid imagination which to me as reader is always very important.

The sex scenes where hot yet a little different, as if you are into the normal ordinary sex scenes from laid back contemporary romances, some instances such as a very sexy mirror scene you might be somewhat shocked. For myself as reader I am never too overly troubled by those or shocked for that matter and I found the sex very tasteful.

If your in the mood for a spicy yet different kind of romance read focusing on learning how to love yourself and the one your with and shake of the past, then this is the read for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars How do you mend a broken heart? Here's an option. 7 Jan. 2013
By girly girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Being a bit of an anglophile, I was already in the right frame of mind to like, Her New Worst Enemy. I wanted Gideon and Ellie to get together right from the get-go. He's so slick and polished and she's well . . . not. But that's part of their charm.

I enjoyed how these two, who practically grew up together, still managed to misunderstand and misinterpret each other. Sometimes you can't move away from your past fast enough. You're doomed to drag it around behind you like a streamer of toilet paper stuck to the bottom of your shoe. Not so good.

But the potential for fresh growth was there once they decided to revisit and revise their relationship as adults and leave the hurt behind. And that, my friends, was one steamy ride.

I received an advanced copy of this book from the author for an impartial review.
5.0 out of 5 stars Best laid plans 12 Sept. 2015
By Avid Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Ellie desperately needs help saving her best friend Penny from making the biggest mistake of her life and Gideon is just the man for the job. Ellie has known him for years, he and her brother were friends, and she can't believe her luck when Gideon agrees to help her. Ellie has also had a crush on Gideon for 12 years and knows Gideon's 'love 'em & leave 'em' life style means he will never be the one for her. So spending a week end together with Penny and Will at Gideon's place shouldn't be an issue, until Ellie and Gideon find themselves alone together the first day and they suddenly can't keep their hands off each other. They agree they can keep this up just for the week end, since they know they aren't right for each other. They can do this. Right? And when Penny and Will arrive and Ellie puts her plan in action to prove to Penny who Will really is then everything will be perfect. Right?

Ellie's recently been dumped by the man she thought she'd be spending the rest of her life with and has hiden herself away from family and friends. When she learns her friend Penny is about to marry someone Ellie doesn't trust, she enlists the help of Gideon, her brother's best friend. Problem is, Ellie's always felt a little weak-kneed around the man and he's got a different woman on his arm every week. When Penny and Will show up late for the weekend at Gideon's house, the attraction between Ellie and Gideon sizzles and boils over.

Well developed characters that have lots of believable and easy-to-relate to thoughts racing around in their heads and super hot sex scenes that came across as fresh every time. I look forward to reading more books by this author.

This book was fun. I loved Ellie's sense of humor and her loyalty to a fault. When she believes in something, she goes after it with all of her heart and soul. She's loved her brother's best friend since she was a little girl and she goes to him for help in stopping her friend from making what she sees as a huge mistake marrying a man she barely knows. She's hidden her feelings for Gideon behind snarky remarks and aloof behavior. To read my full review go here: [...]
