Review ~ Seducing the Enemy (Heirs of Damon #1) by Noelle Adams

After being injured in a tragic accident as a child, Marietta Edwards has lived a sheltered life. Finally recovered, she wants to indulge in pleasures that are entirely new to her, so she begins by seducing a sexy, mysterious stranger. Only after their one-night stand does she learn their families have been embroiled in a fifteen-year legal battle and the man she’s given herself to is her worst enemy.

The heir to a vast fortune, Harrison Damon believes the unforgettable night he spent with Marietta in Monte Carlo is just a fling, an escape from his responsibilities. Then he discovers she is an Edwards—the family he despises most. He can’t quench his attraction for her, but he won’t let her use it against him. He won’t let her manipulate him to win money from his family. No matter how much he wants her, he won’t let her seduce him again.
Seducing the Enemy was a sweet and touching read that involved facing your fears and forgiveness. Marietta was in a car accident when she was 10 years, paralyzing her, killing her sister and the driver, Michael. After 13 years and numerous surgeries she was finally able to walk again. Seducing the Enemy took place 15 years after the accident.

Marietta was convinced to go to a club by her friend, so that she would live again, instead of hiding, a start to conquering her fears. Her and her grandfather had been tied up in a lawsuit against Michael's family, the Damon's, for all this time, not for the money but for closure. Marietta was at the club the night before a big meeting with the Damon's and lawyers. Marietta met a man at the club, the chemistry between the two was electrifying. Deciding to put her fears aside they spent the night together, not realizing that he was Harrison Damon, cousin of Michael and a head player in his uncle's company. Marietta was sweet, forgiving, strong, caring, trusting, loving but also naive and with fears that consumed her at times through panic attacks.

Damon was strong, powerful stubborn, reached for perfection and control but also kind, supportive, protective and understanding. He held his uncle's company together by throwing himself into his work, never waiting to disappoint his uncle, whom raised him, his brother and cousins after their parents were killed in a plane crash. Damon's uncle was demanding, stubborn, they were truly a dysfunctional family. I could tell Cyrus loved the his nephews, but his approach wasn't always the best.

This was an excellent read, that I definitely recommend
