I liked this one a heck of a lot more than I expected to. Usually, hate-to-love tropes don't work for me. But this one was set up in such a way that it made sense.
Now, the whole Stuart plot was pretty ridiculous. But I didn't really care, because the scenes between the main characters were so well drawn. Their conflict felt real on the page, and I was sold.
Also, Tessa Bailey's trademark dirty talking didn't hurt this book's cause, either. Meow!
