Piper Dawson has spent a lifetime living by other people’s rules.
She’s worked hard to get what she wants—a residency at her first choice hospital—and no one will ever tie her down again, not even her severe yet incredibly sexy supervisor, Dr. Alexander “Ace” Lennox.

Ace is done with love. He’s had his heart shattered, and he never wants to go there again. But when he’s inexplicably enticed by the sexy, tattooed woman with blue streaks in her hair and a perpetual smile on her lip, he figures that maybe he can keep it to just sex.

The problem? He thrives on control, and Piper dances just around the edges of it.

But when they’re together, control is the first thing to go…



If you enjoy the sexual escapades on Grey’s Anatomy, then CLAIMING THE ENEMY will be right up your alley. It’s a quick and steamy enemies -to-lovers read and the characters are combustible together. Ace and Piper are from different backgrounds and really have nothing in common but all of that pales beneath the heat they generate between them. 

The only issue I have with this story is that it’s all on the surface. There was no real emotional bond between Ace and Piper beyond their physical chemistry.  There was a lot of information on Ace and Piper and their pasts but it felt disconnected from who they currently are and it didn’t make them characters I could relate to at all. I really would have loved it if there was more development of the characters and all the dangling threads were tied off.

That said, if you’re looking for a very sexy read, this is your book. But if you want more to your characters, this may not fill that need.



About Lauren Hawkeye

New York Time and USA Today bestselling author Lauren Hawkeye never imagined that she’d wind up telling stories for a living… though when she looks back, it’s easy to see that she’s the only one who is surprised. Always “the kid who read all the time,” Lauren made up stories about her favorite characters once she’d finished a book… and once spent an entire year narrating her own life internally. No, really. But where she was just plain odd before publication, now she can at least claim to have an artistic temperament.

Lauren lives in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada with her husband, two young sons, pit bull and two idiot cats, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time, Lauren can be found knitting, reading anything she can get her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her readers!
