“What kept this book from getting boring for me was the witty banter between Miranda and Logan. It kept the flow of things from bogging down and kept the romance interesting.” ~Becca
Here we have your basic Romeo & Juliet type plot line…with quite a few fun twists along the way!
He’s a Martin, she’s a Sweet….
“…two families on opposite sides of the track who grew up hearing tales of the other’s treachery and general worthlessness.”
Miranda Sweet grew up to be everything the town of Salvation said she never could be: smart, successful, and well not a felon!
Logan Martin grew up to be exactly what his dad wanted him to be: a shrewd, while sexy as sin, business man with his head in the right place.
Or did they? Logan is very well liked by everyone, well everyone except Miranda…and even then, the hatred she wants to have for him isn’t always there. After Logan and Miranda lost their virginity to one another years ago all hell broke loose in the gossip circles and Miranda ran. Now Logan holds the key to her success and she is willing to do just about anything to win.
This is your typical enemies to lovers novel…not to say that it isn’t good, just that the plot line is a tad bit predictable. The characters are well developed and likable, they are deep and real. What kept this book from getting boring for me was the witty banter between Miranda and Logan. It kept the flow of things from bogging down and kept the romance interesting.
Speaking of romance…
This one was pretty good. While there were some moments I kept thinking…”umm, yeah don’t do that!” (Like the bank vault..come on people!) most of the book was spent with me quietly whispering to egg them on and get them kissing! There was more of a build up of sexual tension than I expected, which was also a plus When things finally do come to a breaking point it is a sex scene worth reading! I’m not sure which I enjoyed more the boat or the table!
Another thing that kept this book a teensy bit more interesting than your average enemies to lovers book was the danger and mystery. (While I figured it out rather quickly…heck the book gives it away pretty quickly, I enjoyed the little bit of mystery and wish that it would have been drug out a bit more.) I sincerely felt for Miranda and Logan as they fought to get free from the hold of small town expectations. I teared up just a bit when Logan stood up for Miranda, it was a really great moment.
Overall, the book was a tad predictable but the depth of the characters and the extras in the plot line definitely pulled it up to a 3 star book for me. I honestly enjoyed reading it and recommend it to others that enjoy a good enemies to lovers book.
I haven’t looked into what book is next…or when it comes out…however, I feel like it will end up being about the quiet yet studly Sean and Miranda’s sister Natalie. But I suppose we shall have to wait and see I will definitely be on the look out and read it when it comes out!
She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.
Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.
Sexy, funny shenanigans between two enemies who totally hot for each other.
I’ve been writing for about as long as I can remember. Book titles are always hard to come up with, but I love it when we get them just right!
Logan is a sexy bit of awesome. OK, he’s an ass – but only in the beginning. He’s a guy who grew up knowing he was supposed to act a certain way, be a certain kind of person and only hang out with certain kind of people. Who said being a prince was easy, right? But he grows and makes that turn from guy to man and I loved that.
I’m a total control freak so of course, I’m the driver.
I’d love to be able to clone myself. Imagine all I could get done in a day!
