Laney Sawyer used to believe in love and all of the trappings that happily ever after could provide until Ryder Capwell crushed her heart. When Laney is auctioned off as a prize at the drama department fundraiser the last person she expects to trade cold hard cash for her company is Ryder.
Ryder Capwell is in love with Laney Sawyer. One year ago she walked out of his life and took the light of his world right along with her. Ryder would do anything to have another chance with Laney, including purchasing her for the evening courtesy of Whitney Briggs University, and he does just that.
One thing leads to whiskey, which leads to a one-night stand. She thinks it’s revenge sex—he thinks its make-up sex. Things can only go wrong from here.
Ryder has regretted not seeing the writing on the wall and losing the only person that ever mattered to him. Laney has been able to avoid Ryder at all costs. Laney knows that if she sees Ryder she will give in to him and she can’t. At least that is what she keeps telling herself.
Ryder and Laney’s problems are all a result of Ryder’s mom and Meg her personal assistant. Meg wants Ryder for herself and Rue despises Laney. Rue treats Laney with no respect and is very rude to her. Meg makes up problems to get Ryder to help her and take time away from Laney. Laney did not feel like she was 1st in Ryder life anymore so she ended things. Now, Laney is helping to raise money for the drama department and is being auctioned off. Ryder has made an appearance and cannot let another guy bid on Laney. Ryder bids on Laney and now they have to spend time together.
Ryder and Laney give into their feelings for one another and now must work out the 2 problems that stand to break them up again. Ryder is willing to cut his mother out of his life as long as Laney will stand by him. Roxy (Ryder’s sister) is hoping that will not happen.
While Roxy, Baya, and Bryson stand strong with Laney, Ryder has to make some decisions that will break his family into pieces. Will the couple survive the drama or will they crumble with them.
I like this story because Laney was strong to leave Ryder even though she loved him. Ryder should have went after her harder and got her back into his life sooner. The year apart makes since to make them realize that love each other and want to be together.
Rating: 3 ½ stars
