This is another book that is not my normal kind of read, I am trying to expand my reading though so here we are… before we go into my review… let’s look at the Blurb!
Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman sit across from each other every day . . . and they hate each other.
Not dislike. Not begrudgingly tolerate. HATE. Lucy can’t understand Joshua’s joyless, uptight approach to his job and refusal to smile. Joshua is clearly baffled by Lucy’s overly bright clothes, quirkiness, and desire to be liked.
Now they’re up for the same promotion and Lucy, usually a determined people-pleaser, has had enough: it’s time to take him down. But as the tension between Lucy and Joshua reaches its boiling point, it’s clear that the real battle has only just begun . . .
Sounds great right? So let’s take a look at what I think…
Enemies to lovers… I mean sounds like a good trope right? Maybe it is, like I said I don’t really have a lot of experience with this genre and I thought it would be a trope I would like, especially since I am a slow burn romance girl.
But… this romance was too slow for me. You could see it was going to happen from the start, far too much hate for there not to be any feelings involved.
I did enjoy the storyline and I loved Josh’s character, he was so annoying in a funny kind of way and he always had a hint of a nice side shining through. But I couldn’t really find myself connecting to Lucy.
The story itself was a great story, and this book would definitely suit those that love slow burn. But unfortunately for me it was all just a little too slow.
