A new stand-alone enemies-to-lovers romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…
Derek Ballentine and I have always been on opposite sides of everything.
I went to a public Savannah high school. He went to a private Catholic school. I went to Duke on scholarship. He went to UNC as a legacy. When we both end up at Harvard for graduate school and we’re finally on a level playing field, I think it’s all going to change.
I was wrong.
The only thing that changed was ending up in his bed.
Now my grandma has passed away, and Derek is the attorney helping the people trying to steal her legacy. I’ll do anything to stop that from happening. Even take on my lifetime enemy.
I hate him at first sight…but I also want him at first hate.
In this book, we meet Derek and Marley.
Two people who couldn’t be more different if they tried. I truly think they tried.
This book is Murphy’s Law, but make it in print. Seriously, they try so hard to be together but life is like, nah.
I love that this author had us grow up with the characters and we get to see the long sordid history between them.
I also enjoyed seeing my faves from _Hold the Forevers_.
I hope something happens for Asher. He deserves happiness.
The sexy scenes are steamy. A little bit of a slow burn, so if you’re into it this will be great for you.
I love how the story ends. I will not say it here, but it has a HEA.
All in all, a good book/story.
If you love a good enemies-to-lovers, second and third chances, with a strong heroine, and chemistry that is stronger than 2 magnets connecting, this book is for you.
Derek and Marley have a love-hate relationship like no other and have had it since high school. This book spans from high school to adulthood between the two so you get to follow them through all the bantering and fighting to the happily ever after they deserve.
