Review: Loving the Enemy

Loving the Enemy Loving the Enemy by Charmaine Pauls
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

***** April's 5 Star Review ***** 5 Dreams and Screams

I want to thank NetGalley for giving be the opportunity of reading this book for an honest review.
What if your father is a powerful criminal, you can't trust anyone, especially not the stranger who saves you.

Lily is on the run for her father's sins. Having escaped a brutal attack on her home that left her dad's small army and her beloved nana dead, she finds a job and a cheap room in Camps Bay, South Africa. When the men from Sky Communications track her down, she's forced to flee again. This time, Lily ends up homeless, alone on a bench under a brewing winter storm in a violent city. It's a lucky coincidence that Jacob appears through the mist just before a gang finds her in the dark, deserted park. Or is it?

After offering Lily shelter for the night, Jacob's flat is destroyed in an explosion. With Jacob's help, Lily tries to locate her father in search of his protection. In a whirlwind escapade from Africa to France, danger always a step behind, Lily learns about desire, love, survival and trust. Eventually, she'll also learn about betrayal ... and the truth about the savior to who she gave her body and heart.
This is a well written book filled with an action packed romance. I couldn't put it down it is a page turner. You won't want to put it down. The chemistry between the main characters was great. Lily is a very strong female character and surprised me through the book. I loved her desire to fight for her survival and what she feels is right.

This is my first time reading a book but this author and I'm glad it was this one. I can't wait to see what happens next with these characters. I will be reading more from Charmaine Pauls
