Review: Under Her Skin by Susan Mallery

First line: "It's only two million."

From the back cover: Lexi Titan can just see the headlines. All of Titanville will be buzzing. Not that she has any other choice. Faced with exactly thirty days to come up with two million dollars, she is out of options. Marry Cruz Rodriquez or lose everything - the successful day spa she built herself, her tyrant father's respect. And the long-standing competition with her sisters for the family business.

Cruz has money, success, smoldering good looks - everything but the blue blood needed to become a true member of Texas society. If Lexi agrees to be his fiancee for six months, lending him her famous father's influence and connections, he'll hand her a check on the spot. And in six months they'll go their separate ways.

But neither one is prepared for their long-ago shared passion to throw a wrench into what would seem to be the perfect deal...

My thoughts:  This is the first book in the Lone Star Sister's series and I loved it. Yes, it was a quick read, but I loved that I would see these characters again in the next book. The main focus of this book is on Lexi, the oldest of the Titan sisters. She is strong, independent and hell-bent on doing things on her own terms. It also introduces some of the main players in this series - Skye, Izzy, Jed, Dana and Garth. It is a book that has a little of everything - romance, a little bit of mystery, girl-power, and of course, drama.
