Twenty-one-year-old Kayla Turner has lost everything. After spending most of her life taking care of her ailing mother, she just wants to spot a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. So when her late father-a man she barely knew-leaves her an inheritance, she finally breathes a sigh of relief . . . until she learns the inheritance comes with strings. Strings in the form of handsome playboy Daren Ackwood, her father's protégé. To see any of her inheritance, she's forced to team up with him. From his expensive car to those sexy dimples, Kayla's seen his type before. But Daren isn't who he seems to be . . .

Struggling to make amends for his family's mistakes, Daren has a life more Oliver Twist than Richie Rich these days. He's beyond grateful that James Turner included him in his will, but working with Turner's princess of a daughter to fulfill his cryptic last wish is making Daren wonder if being broke is really so bad. Still, she's just as beautiful as she is stubborn, and the more time he spends with Kayla, the less it feels right being without her. Soon Daren and Kayla begin to wonder if maybe the best gift Kayla's dad could have left them . . . was each other.

“I really like that he really likes what he sees- and that’s never happened to me before

When Kayla Turners father dies, her life cannot possibly get any worse. Estranged from him for years, she only attends the funeral on the off chance that he possibly left her something in his will. He was incredibly wealthy and Kayla has been living in poverty for years with her ailing mother. Broke, homeless and out of options, Kayla is desperate for a new start. Daren Ackwood is a spoiled rich kid whom her father admired. Kayla cannot stand him, and unfortunately the only way for her to have a chance at her inheritance is to handcuff herself to him. They both have preconceived perceptions of each other, and they are not good. They also have an undeniable attraction to each other that makes their confinement to each other that much more frustrating.

This second book in the Finding Fate series is absolutely wonderful. It did take me a tad bit longer to get into Kayla and Daren’s story than it did Levi and Pixie from book one. However, as I lie here with a total book hangover, I find myself loving them even more. The whole world was against them. They were so broken and beat down from their respective pasts, that the last thing they could ever have imagined was that they would somehow end up together. There is so much miscommunication, not only between Kayla and Daren but also among the other people in their lives. As these two are led on a scavenger hunt to find the inheritance, so many secrets about their pasts are revealed that it literally changes everything they thought they knew.

Again Ms. Fine has done a fantastic job of making the buildup and the tension between her characters almost more intense and satisfying than the payoff. Neither Kayla nor Daren want to be together, both for very different reasons. They are fighting their feelings and their attraction for each other so badly because they feel that they cannot possibly take any more heartache. Their feelings however are just way too intense. I try not to do spoilers but I have to say that there is a shower scene that is so intense both physically and emotionally that I actually had to take a 10 minute break to recover. I feel like this couple had to work so much harder to realize that they should be together and that perhaps that is why I loved them so much. Their ending is in no way perfect, but this story absolutely is!

5 Stars and a Vodka Screwdriver for this one! Enjoy!

I truly enjoyed this book from beginning to end and am looking forward to the rest of the series. A thank you to Chelsea Fine for generously providing this ARC.
