The ice queen melts in the palm of my hand. Can't help but turn into my good obedient girl, doing any and everything I say 'cause the fact is, you want me so bad it hurts. And it's okay. I know exactly how to make that hurt feel good." AUDREY TAYLOR hates her best friend's brother: DAMIEN PARKER, an arrogant, silver tongued delinquent. For every bit of loathing she has for him, he has for her. A shared feud of childish bickering and spiteful insults spanning to their first meeting in elementary up until he mysteriously left junior year. Since then, she's had the pleasure of not dealing with him-a fact that changes when she decides to spend the summer up at the Palmer beach house, where he's also staying. Initially, she's ready to resume their fiery rapport until he prompts an illicit game of cat and mouse and the lines between lover and enemy begin to blur.
