THE ENEMY by Kelsey Clayton
Release Day: August 13th
Kensington Bradwell doesn’t get told no often.
Not when he built an empire from the ground up.
Not when he became the most powerful man in North Haven.
And definitely not when he met my mother.
A picture-perfect relationship,
a happy family,
and twenty years of marriage—
all thrown away for a man with no morals.
Tearing him down won’t be easy,
but I won’t stop until his empire is in flames.
For my sister. For my father. For me.
I need to find a way to break him.
Lucky for me, the answer just fell into my lap.
Daddy’s little princess may be innocent in all of this,
but Lennon’s about to get caught in the crossfire of revenge.
I recently read and loved the third book in this series, The Rebel by Kelsey Clayton and I was really looking forward to this book. Lennon was a standout in The Rebel so I went into this book already knowing that I loved her. While, I still really like Lennon and it is easy to connect with her, I had a much harder time with the hero of our story, Cade. There were moments of this story were he was so swoon worthy but he definitely had moments where he was a complete asshole. Which also makes the ending when all the walls are broken down that much sweeter but it was a rough ride to get there. I also didn’t love the writing as much in this book as I did in The Rebel. There were lots of times where the story really flowed but there was an equal amount of times where it was stilted. I will say though, that despite the critiques I just gave, the back and forth tension between Cade and Lennon was HOT. The sexual tension rolls off them and I appreciated that the other characters in the book felt it too. If you are in the market for an angsty, drama filled New Adult romance with characters that have a fun and spicy intense connection than I definitely recommend this book to you. Also, I would just like to put in my request here, that the world needs a Colby romance and I hope so much that Clayton gives it to us!
