Bottom line – this book was well-written, but the cartoonish portrayal of Stephanie wasn’t great, and the drama was over-the-top.
I love the friends-to-lovers tripe, I don’t love the I’ll-teach-you-to-get-the-other-guy trope. So I wasn’t sure what which opinion would win out, but I had to read this book. – Smut Matters
This book is exactly what I wanted. It was light on the angst, heavy on the sexy, and I genuinely liked every single character, up to and including Cooper’s duck-watching, meditating agent. – Smut Matters
I do recommend this one, but I don’t think it’ll be for everyone. – Smut Matters
I really like Lauren Layne; I think she has a great writing style, and her characters all but jump off the page for me. I really enjoyed this series overall, but it’s ending in the right place. – Smut Matters
I have a deep, dark secret about this series, you guys. I’ve never told anyone this before, but… Here we go. – Smut Matters
In fact, I decided to DNF this one, but I talked to someone at Lori Foster’s Reader Author Get Together who said he got better, so I decided to finish it. Which turned out to be a mistake. Because he did not. – Smut Matters
I loved everything about this book. The relationship was a slow burn, even if the sex wasn’t. The sex was scorching hot and an immediate burn. I’m so excited to read the next book in the series and I cannot recommend this one highly enough. – Smut Matters
I’ve been looking forward to reading this story; Lauren has been so cold and unfriendly through the first two books in the series, there had to be something there. – Smut Matters
The book wasn’t bad, the writing was good, and I’d read more by Marie Harte, but Johnny just didn’t do anything for me.
