And, what can I say? They never let me down. This was a witty, sexy, low-angst romp, and I loved every minute of it.
Usually reporter heroines irk me. They’re often too nosy for their own good and run head-first into life-threatening situations for the sake of their stories, which can often venture into TSTL (too stupid to live) territory. But Rebecca wasn’t like that. She took a couple of risks, but nothing that made me want to throw my Kindle at her head, and that’s saying a lot, because the list of reporter heroines I really like is pretty short.
But what I think I liked most about this story was Cade. In the beginning, you might think he’s your typical former athlete, cocky jerk type of hero. But once you get to know him, he’s really nothing like that. He’s fairly humble and a genuinely nice guy who is good at his job, loves and supports his brother, and is supportive of Rebecca when no one else in their office is. And because it’s Romancelandia, he’s also blisteringly hot, which is just a bonus as far as I’m concerned. I ADORE nice-guy heroes, and Cade fits the bill nicely.
I won’t keep gushing because if I haven’t convinced you to read this one by now I’m not going to. But if you decide not to read this one, just know you’re missing out on a great office/enemies-to-lovers romance that would’ve made you laugh out loud and possibly pee your pants a little because you were laughing so hard.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
No rehab needed. This one’s clean and sober.
