Heart break is hard, especially when you're Roscoe Winston--cursed with kind of memory that never blurs or fades. Each day the pain is fresh as the last. So he's spent the last ten years avoiding Simone, and she's avoided him...except now he's a key component to the federal case that Simone is trying to build, and she can't afford to stay away from him anymore. Reid's writing is funny and smart, often making me actually laugh out loud. Her characters are interesting, brilliant and quirky--the kind you want to go back and visit again and again. (Reid is also a local independent author!) She has become an instabuy author for me.
Stella Lane: brilliant econometrician, lousy in love, ♥s pencil skirts and martial arts movies, autistic.
Michael Phan: Vietnamese stunner, also awful with romance, professional escort.
This book is both fun and endearing, and just goes to prove that romance is not only for white neurotypicals.
- Cutthroat competion
- Heartthrob athletes in various states of (un)dress
- Painfully well-executed cliffhangers
- Rivalry rife with sexual tension
and you get this cheeky, enthralling, character-driven volume for those who wish the Rocky movies were a little gayer.
I have nothing bad to say about this book. Thorne is a MASTER at telling an enemies to lovers story - which most people seem to get wrong. Not only that but her charactesr are rich, her dialogue is witty, and she just all-around makes you feel good! You'll want to read it five times in a row... and then, maybe again, just for good measure.
