“One. More. Word.”
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Length: 395 pages
POV: Alternating First Person
For the first time in my life, I’m with the family I choose.
Living with my cousin, who happens to be a newlywed, is the best thing ever.
There is one pesky downside, and his name is Lucas Clark.
He’s a spoiled rich boy who was put on this Earth to torture me.
He thinks he can intimidate me, keep me in my place, but I have news for him. No way is he man enough.
And it’s annoying. Like, why do his eyes follow me everywhere? Why do I lose all self-control, seeking him out whenever we share the same space?
I should be running in the opposite direction, right?
His words are harsh, hostile. Until one night, the hostility is replaced by a kiss that almost set us on fire.
She’s a tiny ball of energy. Every bitter and combative word out of her mouth is aimed at me.
My family thinks I walk on water, so I could use any excuse to stay away from her.
She’s nothing more than a man-hating shrew wrapped up in a beautiful package.
Those dark eyes of hers? I see them everywhere.
Her red lips? They beg to be kissed.
And one night, I do. I finally get a taste, but it’s not enough. I want more.
She says she hates me.
I’m used to getting what I want, and what I want is to prove to Vivi that hate is the last thing on her mind when it comes to me.

Vivi and Luke didn’t have a typical meet cute. They basically crashed into each other, found an instant attraction that neither wanted and therefore created an instant sarcastic hatred. Once they realized that her cousin was marrying his brother and there was no escaping each other they made it a game of torturing each other…something Luke started to curb his attraction and something she started for payback because he made her self-esteem falter.
Everyone in both families could see the attraction they had for each other even though neither one of them would admit it. Each tried to fight the attraction and instead focus on the mutual hate they each assumed the other had. That is until she began working for him and he couldn’t resist her anymore.
“I have the one thing I want. The one thing I didn’t know I needed. I have you.”
I enjoyed the jealousy drama. Luke was hella good at knowing how to make Vivi jealous even before they were together. He wanted under her skin. He wanted her to want him as badly as he wanted her. But oh boy did he go about it the wrong way. And he got stink bombed because of it.
Crash is another Clark Family love story. I love how the Clark brother’s have fallen for cousins and keeps both of their families entwined in the storyline. All the characters have such fantastic personalities and each one comes alive as I read.
