This was my favorite RS Grey book so far! This was peak enemies to lovers goodness. I listened to this on audio and really enjoyed both narrators!
The chemistry between Taylor and Ethan was palpable. Even when they were fighting there was so much tension between them. I absolutely loved their dynamic and bickering. Taylor’s character was so strong and witty and I loved that she always stood up for herself and fought for more. Ethan’s character starts off closed off and untrusting – validly – but by the end he was so charming and I was swooning.
The humor in this one worked really well for me and never feel overdone. All of the characters were so witty and sarcastic and found myself smiling or laughing out loud quite often. However, I did think this book could have been a bit shorter. Some of the topics/discussions were beaten to death and could have been cut back. But the epilogue in this melted my heart ♥♥
Once again R.S. Grey delivers a charming rom-com I couldn’t help but devour.
