People who say keep your enemies closer never took a road trip with a guy who hated their guts.
A month ago, my identity as Dr. Love was a secret. A month ago, I thought I was getting engaged.
A month ago, I wasn’t stuck with the guy who hates me most in the world.;
Now… if I don’t make nice with my #1 hater, I might lose my book deal.
Without that, I’m not sure what I have left.
But when I’m forced on a publicity tour with everyone’s favorite guy, the guy who says I ruined his relationship, I didn’t know how low I could go.;
At every stop, I get roasted and he gets more revered.
You would think after a while, I would hate him too.
And you would be very, very wrong…
I’m so sad this series is over!! [Though low-key stoked to see what the author writes next].
I found this book beautifully chaotic (and this is a high compliment). Many antics that had me laughing and eyes widening because I couldn’t believe what hijinks were happening next. The road trip that went South fast, yet brought Sam and Rhys together was everything I could hope for.
The subtlety of the enemies to lovers dynamic worked great for these two. It wasn’t heavy on the enemies side. It definitely moved QUICK to lovers. But the way St. Clair portrayed their love story had me never second guessing the pace. It was a fantastic fast-paced romance where I was swooning right along with Sam’s friends at every turn (the pinky hold?! adorable).
It was so fun with all of the hotel changes, book tour nonsense, weddings, video chats, airplane rides, candy stops and much much more. Typing that all out I can’t believe how much happened. I love that the gang was all together and how magical to see all of the happy endings. Even better, there was an epic-logue where 40 years in the future we got to see everyone again. I love additions like this!!! I’m smitten for any epilogue I can get my hands on and this was no exception.
