Sassy is a perfect description for this also swoony romance
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
While this is probably the least “angsty” of the series, it’s by no means lightweight. Jay still covers some pretty big issues with her usual skill and compassionate understanding.
While on the face of it, this is an enemies-to-lovers trope centred narrative, in reality it’s so much more than the sum of its parts.
Kip, aka Chris as Leon calls him, has been a dynamic force in the previous books but here he really gets his chance to shine.
And also to have his halo tarnished as he’s also judgemental and unforgiving, like any human, over what he feels is an insult Leon dished out two years previous.
This means we’re given some interesting flashbacks that take the reader into the journey of Kip and Leon and let us see how they could come together in a believable happy ending.
Before it reaches that stage though, we’re treated to an emotionally complex and thoroughly enjoyable mix of sarcastic retorts, off-the-charts UST, sexual chemistry of the explosive variety, tensions and pain caused by family issues, hurt/comfort of the best kind, capped off with some utterly sweet and completely swoony love.
I’m not sure if this is the final entry or not, but if it is, Jay goes out on a high note.
