I was hooked from the start with this one!! A lot of enemies-to-lovers reads can be a bit like, yeah I don’t like you so there and a bit playground school type tit for tat, but not with this one!! The main characters really did detest one another!!
Natalia has always had bad luck with her love life, it never goes smoothly, and she has just about given up hope after her last boyfriend and problems with his cat! She ends up getting fired from her job at a publishing agency and ends up going working in marketing for her twin brother Luca, who is a self made millionaire with his company Gather. Marketing is her niche and she jumps right in doing research and wanting to increase their online presence. However Luca took on a partner, Anderson, that she had never met, but when they do meet it is hate at first sight!!!
Anderson is the CFO for Gather, a health foods focused brand that are looking to expand. He is good friends with Luca and their have known each other a while and work well together, he is a hard nosed business partner knowing his facts and figures and it willing to push the boundaries and take risks, the opposite to Luca really, which is why they work so well together.
Natalia and Anderson’s relationship flits from hate to passion and everything in between. He pushes her buttons so then she pushes his…. the banter between these two is everything!!!
Told from dual POV’s you get more about Natalia than you do Anderson, but you find out enough about him to explain why he acts the way he does. He has had his ups and down but I really liked how he has turned his life around, once I understood him I loved him better!
I loved how Natalia didn’t back down from him, her attraction to him was undeniable, even though he was awful with her at times, she would give back as good as she got, getting under his skin in a way no one else has. Some of the hot sexy scenes between these two will leave you needing cold showers!!!
A brilliant read from start to finish, I loved how the characters developed as you got to know them. It was one of those books I didn’t want to put down once I had started. Powerful in its intensity for how much they disliked one another, to the steamy getting to know you parts. Highly recommended reading, I will be reading more from this author.
