Publisher's Summary

Sometimes opposites don't just attract--they catch fire and burn the city down.

Is it true that you can't always get what you want?

Shaw Landon is a good girl from a nice family. She knows what she should want: top grades and then a steady job and, someday, a nice guy to take home to her parents. She also knows what she shouldn't want…but it's hard to stay away from a guy like Rule.

Rule Archer is the guy your mother always warned you about: a tattoo artist with a cocky swagger, a heart-melting smile, and a wicked glint in his eye. With his terrible reputation, he's used to getting everything and everyone he wants. But even he knows that beautiful Shaw is strictly off limits.…

But what if what you want is exactly what you need?

Slow and predictable

Not a very interesting story and the performances were a little dreary and monotonous. Not for me.
