Dashiel Hampton is her enemy.
Layla Tate reminds herself of that fact every morning she goes to class and sees his smug face smirking up at her. There hasn’t been a moment they weren’t pitted against each other and she refuses to back down…not even when she learns he’s her new teaching assistant.
Layla Tate is going down.
There is nothing that makes Dash Hampton as happy as the look on Layla’s face when she realizes he’s won. He lives to drive her crazy because if he can’t have her beneath him, then he’ll have her any other way he can. He’ll get her to notice him, even if it means making her semester a living hell.
When their classroom rivalry crosses the line between frenemies and forbidden, the hardest lesson they’ll have to learn is that sometimes you have to lose to win.

❤️💋🔥 My Review
Sexy, snappy and swoon worthy! Outstanding enemies to lovers romance with divine characters and fantastic writing. Dash is a dream of a hero with his good looks, pedigree and smarts. He loves to set Layla on fire either with his barbs or his sexiness and watch as she reacts. She’s a spitfire that gives as good as she takes and she wants to take him down. Their rivalry started in childhood with Dash “pulling her pigtails” and Layla going for payback that continues into adulthood. These highly competitive, beautiful people dish it back and forth with a fierceness that looks like hate but is really attraction. When Layla needs some help Dash is there for her and she sees a different side of him that she likes. Dash is ready to romance the lovely and sassy Layla but he has to convince her that they can be more than frenemies or at the least dislike and lust can co-exist. These two have terrific chemistry that’s sizzles and can’t be denied whether they’re fighting or lusting. There are a few twists that cause friction in their budding relationship including their current teacher/student situation. And then there’s the drama and heartache both have to deal with from their respective family’s expectations and issues. Love the friendship between the gals and their wonderful support. This author has given us a panty-melting couple along with a storyline that has loads of depth and emotion. A real page turner to find out how Layla and Dash get to their ending. Loved it!
