His Enemy’s Son by Iyana Jenna
Read July 2015
Luke Garrett, a young oil mogul, can’t get his business counterpart to return his calls after a deal goes bad. After making every effort to contact the man, Luke decides to kidnap his former partner’s son, Alex, to gain the man’s attention to their shared problem.
Alex Parker is celebrating his eighteenth birthday by getting drunk with his best friend–and studiously avoiding the debutantes his father tries to throw Alex’s way. His night of revelry is cut short when he finds himself a houseguest of a rather unconventional abductor.
Even though he’s angry and scared, Alex is drawn to Luke, whose plan falls apart when his attraction to Alex generates a change of heart. Luke can’t do anything else but turn himself in to the police, much to Alex’s dismay. Alex doesn’t want to lose his chance at something great before it even begins.
I was really enjoying this story and then before I knew it, it was over. It was way too short for my liking. This story felt like it was more an opening to the rest of the book or that it could have been fleshed out a lot more.
I did like Luke and Alex as a couple, even if it was a bit forbidden. The only this that I didn’t like about their relationship was the insta-insta love. There wasn’t enough development in their relationship for them to be even reaching the ‘L’ level. But that could just be me.
Overall it was an enjoyable quick read.
