My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I had a sneaky ARC of this one but wasn’t allowed to mention it until Roan officially announced the release so here’s my review now it’s out!
This book previously appeared in the Exposed anthology and, although I have that, I’ve not read anything from it yet so this was my first time with Natural Enemies and let me say, it’s an absolute delight.
In Stefan, Roan has created a character I could perfectly visualise and understand how his upbringing had led him into a fairly insular and repressed lifestyle. Milo, on the other hand, took me a bit longer to get inside his head, although I loved him as a character from the off.
There’s some really funny banter at times but also som quite heartbreaking moments when Milo unintentionally hits one of Stefan’s insecurity trigger points but overall it’s a seriously sexy (Stefan is all buttoned up and needs Milo to take control but when he lets go, the steam is explosive!)
It’s all filled out with loads of gardening fluff and there’s a fabulous list at the end of a load of gardening projects and schemes working with community groups to try and make a difference in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the USA.
ARC kindly received from the author in exchange for an honest and unbiased review
