A deliciously funny rom com from Random Romance. What happens when you fall in love with the man you hate?
Nicola Doyle's dating record is a disaster, and it doesn't improve when she returns to Redgum Valley, after an absence of twelve years, to look after her increasingly eccentric parents. There, she's thrown into regular contact with Blair Morrissey – the very reason she couldn't wait to leave town in the first place.
The decade-old scars are still raw from that humiliating day in high school – when Blair went from the boy she loved to the boy she hated.
Except Blair doesn't seem to be a ‘bad boy' any more – in fact, he's charming, infuriatingly helpful and extremely attractive.
If only Nicola could forgive and forget . .
This is a really cute and sweet contemporary story. It’s pretty short in length and I was able to read it in less than a day.
I really liked the characters. Sometimes things aren’t always how they seem to be and Nicola found this out first hand. People do things and act a certain way for different reasons.
I think Nicola and Blaire made a cute couple and I’m happy they got their happy ending. Even though I was beginning to wonder lol
The language barrier is a little different. The author is from Australia and some of the terms and phrases used within this story are different from what I’m used too, but I thought it was cute.
There is no sex within the pages of this book. None. Notta. Zilch. But that doesn’t take away from the story. Like I said it’s a sweet romance and I’m glad I took the time to read it. Ms Baxter is a new to me author and I’m looking forward to reading more of her work in the future.
