Summary

I sold my soul to a man I hate. Now, he owns me.

I had a plan: Sign a contract, and board a plane to Ibiza. The anonymous deal would salvage the smoldering wreckage of my life.

It would not involve billionaire Harrison King, the reason I need saving in the first place.

He’s as beautiful as he is cruel. A British business titan who makes a living getting what he wants.

The man flies private. Dates supermodels. But the crisp accent and cocky smirk don’t fool me. He’s a gentleman on the outside, a savage beneath. Dangerous, rough, and brutal.

Because after my attempt to publicly stand up for those who needed it....

He destroyed my reputation.

Now, he’s come for the rest of me.

Except it’s not salvation he’s promising. It’s nights in Ibiza, under his roof, rules, his control.

I can’t back out. No matter what he has in store for me.

Harrison King knows my secrets....

But kings keep secrets, too.

Beautiful Enemy is an enthralling, explosive romance from USA Today best-selling author Piper Lawson. You’ll want to binge Harrison and Rae’s entire addictive story.

loved this Audio book

5*
Harrison & Rae cross paths when she performed at a club he owned. After an incident happened there she's determined to be the voice everyone hears.
Unfortunately others aren't keen on supporting her.
A chance opportunity to work again leads her to ibiza, but things aren't as she thought.
I'm enjoying the pull between these two and can't wait to read "beautiful sins" the next book in  the series.

Exciting New Series! Fantastic Story & Narration🎧

This is an amazing start to a new series, and Piper Lawson definitely penned another winner of a story. She is a gifted author with a wonderful writing style. I love how complex and layered her stories are and her ability to capture my attention and hold it hostage for every one of her books. If you have not gotten a chance yet, be sure to check out her other series, her “Wicked” and “Rivals” series, which I loved. The lead characters of this book made appearances in “Rivals”, Rae is Annie’s friend and Harrison King, a friend and colleague of Tyler. Harrison is a billionaire and businessman with his hands in the entertainment industry. Rae is a DJ playing in high end clubs, she finds it is a man’s world and she has to put up with biases and no all men play fairly. After a scandalous incident, which she blames Harrison for, she is trying to start over and takes a job abroad in a club in Ibiza. Problem is her new boss is not so new, she is stuck with Harrison as her boss once again, even worse, she has to deal with him every day. I admired Rae’s strength and determination to stand up for what she believed in. Harrison turns out to be so much more than his reputation and I loved watching these two go back and forth and then compromise. I loved how everything played out in this book, it is a beautifully plotted story with plenty of drama, angst, heartfelt emotions, some thrilling suspense and a slow burn romance. Piper Lawson, thank you for another amazing story and emotional rollercoaster ride. I am looking forward to what comes next for Rae and Harrison.

🎧📚🎧And for the wonderful narration, Samantha Brentmoor and Shane East were the perfect cast to bring these characters and their story to life. They had a complete understanding of the characters they were portraying, gave even a voice that fit their character’s persona , sounding believable and just as I pictured the characters would sound. Brentmoor played Rae’s role with perfection, she grasped every side of her personality, her strength and her fierceness, she is also amazing covering the other roles, including male roles, accents and all. Shane East’s Harrison was spot on as well, he too grasped all sides of his personality, from a man with an alpha-tude to a caring softy. They set the perfect tone for the story, captured all the character’s emotions and projected them into their performance. These entertaining storytellers are versatile voice artists and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another amazing listen.

So Good!!

I just finished the audiobook and I loved it! The narration fit the characters perfectly. The voices were age appropriate and the performances were great. Rae and Harrison clash from the first minute they lay eyes on each other making for some very sizzling encounters. They have an instant dislike but also an undeniable pull to each other. I loved how they both changed with each interaction. They are both carrying a lot of baggage around and I can’t wait to see where this story goes.

Rae & Harrison! The beginning!

Piper Lawson, I am in love with the way you write! This is the beginning of Rae and Harrison's story, and it's fantastic! We met Rae in the Rebel's series, and now we get a look into her life. She is working on fixing her reputation as a DJ, always changing her look and enjoying that chance to hide herself. Harrison is the man who has created this mess. And now he is going to make her life even worse. Making a deal to honor her contract, help her roommate and repair her life, Rae moves into Harrison's house and is working to make his nightclub a success. What these two find though is flawed souls that together may be the healing that they need. But in true Lawson style, life is never easy. Harrison's past is interfering with his life, both personally and professionally and wounds are reopened. Rae is quite a character. I love her individuality and ambition. She is a fantastic friend, and a need to stand for what is right. Harrison is unexpected. A billionaire, he definitely carries himself high, but he is just a man, and it's refreshing to get to know him. The cliffhanger is enough to make me scream at the top of my lungs looking for the next part of this amazing series. Bring it on!

Add to that the narration team! Samantha Brentmoor is Rae, edgy and full of attitude. She can be mouthing off in one breath and seamlessly change to a soft emotional woman. Love her man voice too! Shane East carries that air of importance as Harrison, but his flaws and pain are evident in his voice. This pairing is perfect for this trilogy and I can't wait to hear more.

Amazing !!

OMG This Audiobook is PHENOMENAL !!I
Now I read this story a while ago and I Loved it.
Piper Lawson is one of my favourite authors,her books are Always Amazing.
So it goes without saying that I Love the characters she creates and I Love Harrison and Rae.
So when I began to listen to this Audiobook,I became quite emotional..lol..
Samantha Brentmoor and Shane East ARE Rae and Harrison !!
To hear them reciting this book to me washed over me like the warmest of hugs.
They are both an exceptional talent and perfectly told Harrison and Rae's thunderous Romance with ease.When I first heard Shane speak as Harrison,I completely melted,I honestly had a hot flush !!..lol.
Rae and Harrison are combustible believe me,Enemies that are unequivocally attracted to one another,and who are opposites in every way.
Rae is a D.J...Trying to make it big in the music industry and Harrison is a Billionaire night club owner and a ruthless buisness man.....And Rae is the woman who decided to take him on.When allegations of an assault at one of his Night clubs comes to light.Rae with all her sass makes the call to confront him about it ,much to the detriment of her career.
There is so much Push and pull between these two they are a great match,great at sparring verbally and great with all the sexual tension and steam.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book,and I highly recommend it.
Just Brilliant.

Beautiful Enemy

A great story by Piper Lawson.

Rae and Harrison I met already in the Rivals series and I love that they got their own story.

The story is captivating from the beginning. Can't wait to listen to book 2.

The perfect start to an enemies to lovers series!

Beautiful Enemy is book one in the Enemies trilogy and is the age gap, enemies to lovers romance of Harrison and Rae.
If you have read Piper’s Rivals series, you will recognise Harrison King and Raegan Madani as friends of Tyler and Annie and will recall their first meeting in ‘A Love Song for Dreamers’ didn’t go well at all and since then has only gone from bad to worse and they have become enemies.
Rae, a deejay who is so good at her craft finds herself blacklisted from every major club in America so imagine her surprise when she lands in Ibiza and realises, she’s at the mercy of the man who she not only despises most in the world but the guy who derailed her budding career and to make matters worse she’s also staying at his villa so can’t escape him. Will her month-long stint in Harrison’s club salvage her career? And will she last the month under his roof without killing him or climbing him?
Harrison, a hot successful British guy with clubs across America and Ibiza. However, one Raegan Madani, the woman who, even though she’s the best friend of his friends wife, has become the bane of his existence and has caused a shitstorm for one of his clubs so he decides to exact his revenge by black listing her from any decent clubs in America and tricks her into playing a month long residency at his club in Ibiza to get the crowds back in and have her stay with him at his luxury villa. Will Harrison live to regret his decision, or will Rae do the unthinkable manage to increase the numbers coming into the club?
Shane East and Samantha Brentmoor bring Harrison and Rae to life and my goodness, these two perfectly complimented each other. Samantha brings all the snark, sass and sex appeal as globetrotting deejay Rae and Shane perfectly portrays the moody, brooding, stick up his ass alpha hole.
I loved this first instalment in what is shaping up to be another incredible series by the insanely talented Piper Lawson. Ibiza is such a beautiful place and as the weather has been lovely here in England, I listened to this laid in the sun in the garden with a cocktail in my hand and as I live by the seaside, if I closed my eyes, I could almost trick my brain that I was in Ibiza…almost!

Great start to this story

Rae and Harrison's story is intriguing, I am having so much fun hearing to this audiobooks narrated by Shane East and Samantha Breitmoor, who did a fantastic performance portraying their characters, the production was overall good, can't wait to listen to the next ones. As for the story, the plotline has me hooked, it started a bit slow, but then it picked up, having Rae as being a DJ is refreshing and original, I really liked the idea.

great start to the series

I really liked where this book was going lots of
building the relationship and story with this
being a series but I did enjoy the sexual
tension and banter between Rae and
Harrison. Rae being a DJ was a cool element
that I have not read before and really liked.
listening to the early copy of the audiobook I
think made me like this book more than i
expected. I love listening to Shane East, talk
about and eargasm!
Looking forward to see where Rae and
Harrison end up over the next books!

Captivating and Emotional Romance!

I was so excited for Rae and Harrison's enemies to lovers story after getting a peak into them in the Rivals series, and was not disappointed! Rae was performing in one of Harrison's clubs when an assault happens. She blames him for not caring enough to provide a safe space for women. Rae wants nothing to do with him or his clubs which is why she is surprised when she finds out he owns the club she is working at. She tries to back out, but has personal reasons why she needs the money. Harrison is intrigued by the fiery woman who doesn't fall at his feet like others do. She challenges him and makes him feel things he swore he never wanted to feel again. Rae didn't want to like Harrison, but as she sees his kindness, and thoughtfulness, the more her walls begin to fall. When they finally give in to their explosive attraction, they begin to make plans for the future. But as they work towards a common goal, others are out to destroy them at any cost. I loved the tension between Rae and Harrison who were so great together. Rae is strong, determined, and a caring friend. She is perfect for the cocky, complicated, and protective, Harrison. The ending is a cliffhanger and left me wanting more.
Shane East and Samantha Brentmoor's narration was fantastic. They really captured every nuance of these characters. Their depth of emotion, and delivery created a realism that was completely captivating, I was totally captivated by their performance and can't wait for the next book, Beautiful Sins!

Harrison and Reagan

Dual POV. Book 1 of 4 in the Enemies series. SLOW burn, workplace enemies to lovers, age gap romance ending on a cliffhanger. If you want to get the most out of the character crossover, I recommend listening/reading two of her previous completed series, Wicked and Rivals. Listed as 5 hours 8 minutes; I listened at speed 1.75 for 2 hours 56 minutes. Both narrators adopted average American, British, and French accents. They did an excellent job. Trigger warnings: off the page suspicious drug overdose leading to the death of Harrison's parents 14 years ago; an assault on Raegan; and a fight in a club.

Reagan Madani is 24 years old, an electronic dance music DJ, and recently committed career suicide after calling out billionaire club owner Harrison King for a security issue at one of his venues during her performance. Harrison is 35 years old and has been on a mission for 14 years to restore his family's name after his parents death. Reagan signs a contract to work as a DJ for a month at Debajo in Ibiza, not knowing it is Harrison's newest club. These two definitely have chemistry but they also have a cargo hold full of baggage. On to 'Beautiful Sins', the next book in this series.

I always enjoy this author's work. Do I wish this one had more heat? Yes, but I also understand that it wouldn't have made sense in this portion of their story. Do I like cliffhanger? NO, but I did enjoy this book in the series.

*The audiobook is the same story as the ebook but has quite a few line editing differences. The differences don't take away from or change the story line at all but I couldn't "read and listen" to this one. JP

What an beautiful story

Rea will be performing for a month at a club in Ibiza that has just been remodelled and is trying to rebuild its clientele.

When she arrives, the situation isn't quite as described, and she's not happy. Feeling misformed, she decides to walk away from the contract at the earliest opportunity and plans to leave Ibiza immediately.

Her cousin calls in desperate need of cash and a lot of it after she performs one set at the club determined to leave the next day. A plan is hatched by Rea to save the day.

With a cliffhanger ending, you're gripped throughout by sexual tension, frustration, and finding friends in unlikely places. Can't wait to see more of this new series.

XOXO Lottie.

Couldn’t Put It Down!

I was immediately pulled in to this story right from the beginning. After Rae decides to stand up for something she believes her reputation is destroyed and she decides take a DJ job in Ibiza and later learns that she was hired by the same guy that ruined her, Harrison King.

Rae and Harrison’s chemistry is off the chart despite not liking each other very much and the verbal sparring between them was entertaining. I love them watching them get to know each other and she realizes there is a lot more to him than a rich guy that doesn’t care. They have an undeniable connection and I really enjoyed these characters.

Samantha Brentmoor does an amazing job at bringing out Rae’s strength and Shane East is perfect as the broody club owner. Together they bring Rae and Harrison to life and I cannot wait to hear more from these two in this trilogy.

Exciting, Engrossing story!!!

Beautiful Enemy, an Audiobook by Piper Lawson is the engrossing story of Harrison and Rae. She’s stuck….with no way out. Harrison has complete control over everything, and she despises him. He has his own motivations for the liaison. This story had me on pins and needles!!! Loved the interaction between these two dynamic characters!! Loved the story line!!! LOVED EVERYTHING about this tremendous story!!!

This Audiobook was narrated by fabulously narrated by Shane East and Samantha Brentmoor! They do a phenomenal job translating these characters and the story!!! Kudos to them both for a job well done!!

I am volunteering to leave a review for an Advance Reader Copy of this Audiobook.

Easy listening

Harrison and Rae have enemies to lovers down to a science, and Shane and Samantha do a wonderful job of bringing this to life.
Their constant back and forth, their banter and taunts definitely gave me whiplash!
But, we already got to see some cracks in their facades - a peek behind the curtain of Harrison, a sliver of uninhibited Rae. A glimpse into their explosive chemistry. And then, Piper's evil genius strikes again! AKA Cliffhanger alert 🚨

Beautiful Enemy (Enemies Book 1)

PERFORMANCE REVIEW & RATING: 5 STARS

I’ve listened to quite a bit of Shane East’s narration in the past and have loved him in every one and this was no exception and Samantha Brentmoor did a really good job not just on her narration of Rae, but also capturing Harrison’s character as well! Well done.

STORY REVIEW & RATING: 4 STARS

As I go thru my notes on this first installment of Rae & Harrison’s journey, I can’t help the huge smile that just doesn’t want to go away! The love-hate, push-pull relationship they have was charged from the very beginning. It started because Rae is just sass personified but developed into a delicious slow-burn sexual charge that I couldn’t get enough of!

However, there is one thing I could have done with a bit less of, and that’s Rae’s constant insecurity and jumping to the worst possible conclusion almost immediately at every single turn. I got over it quick of course because she’s young, and young people have the tendency to be exactly as Piper Lawson created Rae to be! So as much as I wanted to throttle her a few times, I gotta give props to Piper for the realistic and relatable Rae she created.

This story is just developing in Beautiful Enemy and I am sure I have a lot more #twitchy moments coming ahead, but I welcome them with open arms because with just the little bit I know of both Harrison and Rae thus far, I am invested fully in their HEA! I want them to #win at life, badly! My gut tells me they deserve it!

I’m just beginning my journey into Piper Lawson as well, and thus far she has proven to be an excellent storyteller and I can’t wait to not only move forward with her stories, but also delve back into her past book some more!

Harrison King & his Little Queen!

It truly doesn’t get better than this! Before this story, Jax and Haley held the top spot in my favorite couples list. They’re now in second place! The tension between Harrison and Rae was palpable and sizzling hot! I honestly couldn’t get enough of them and want more.

I thought the book was phenomenal, but this version completely elevated their story! Samantha Brentmoore and Shane East truly brought Harrison and Rae to life, and did it superbly!

Action packed and tantalizing!

“Beautiful Enemy” is an action packed, secret filled and tantalizing enemies to lovers story that pulled me from the beginning and left me wanting more after I finished the last sentence.

The music world is a complicated beast and women are often an afterthought. Determined to make a change, up and coming DJ, Rae (AKA Little Queen) puts it all on the line to call out a club for its treatment. This sets off a domino effect and leaves her and the club owner in a mess. But when she signs a mysterious contract, she flies to Ibiza, and is working for the club owner, Harrison King. Harrison is rich, powerful and ruthless in getting what he wants.

I loved Rae and Harrison’s chemistry. It was red hot and explosive from the start. Rae is fierce, smart and independent. The perfect match to Harrison’s need for control and to own everything he wants. Their tension is so delicious and thick, you could cut it with a knife. I could not put this story down because I needed more of their banter and to find out when they would finally give into the attraction. This series is a trilogy so it ends on a cliffhanger, and I can’t wait to start the next one.

Samantha Brentmoor and Shane East did a great job bringing this story to life. I have loved Samantha in the past and she brought her A game to bring Rae to life. Her male British accent was so good. And I’m always happy when I get to listen to a confident and grumpy Shane East.
