Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right?
Not when it’s Justin…the only person I’d ever loved…who now hates me.
When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise.
The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago.
The same teenager who’s now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match.
I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house.
The worst part? He didn’t come alone.
I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection.
The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more.
This book is a slow build that puts you through the wringer and keeps you guessing. I thought it was going to be one thing, it turned into something totally different, and I loved it all the way.
At the beginning Justin straight up made me mad. I know that’s the whole point of enemies-to-lovers, but man, his attitude drove me nuts. When we had the big reveal of what she did to piss him off, I really didn’t think it was justified. Thankfully, the flashbacks helped me forgive him. There was a kind and protective side there, it was just buried under a mountain of betrayal and hurt feelings.
Amelia was super sweet, but never spineless. In fact, half the time she’s just being sweet to kill Justin with kindness. Atta girl, if you can’t beat them at least make them feel bad about it. And the way she deals with the curveballs that come her way… Let’s just say, she’s a strong woman.
I probably don’t even need to say my last point, seeing as it’s a book I enjoyed… But these two are pure steamy perfection together.
“Don’t ever forget that I respect the hell out of you,” he said as he stuck his hand up my dress and grabbed onto my panties.
“Why do you say that?”
“Because I’m about to fuck you like I don’t.”
Just a side note: they nudged this close to my line on cheating. Thankfully they stayed on the right side of it, but only just. Emotional affairs aren’t cool either, guys.
All up, four stars!
