When I first read the blurb for this book I thought I would like it, enemies to lovers with a road trip thrown in sounded like a lot of shits and giggles. I had been reading a few highly emotional books and I figured this would be a nice change of pace.

So I dove in and then I had to stop and check the blurb again. I seemed to be reading the wrong book and I thought my goldfish memory had struck and I had mixed up books. I mean sure there was some humour and I loved the stoner boss and his team bonding exercises but I wasn’t getting anything like I expected.

There was so much emotion and I will be honest initially I didn’t want that so I took a bit to get into the book. But the writing was so good and the characters were captivating enough that I had to know why they were how they were and see when the mounting sexual tension was going to boil over.

Then I spent a few hours playing chauffeur to the kids reading a page here and there and I was even more intrigued to see how this was all going to happen that I ended up not being able to put the book down until the last page at 2am this morning.

This is one of those times that I am so glad I didn’t get what I wanted because I got so much more. I got so many laughs, they just weren’t the cheap ones I expected, but the way Nicole manipulated my emotions was truly masterful.

There’s a few things personally I would have liked to see added on at the end but despite the lack of vengeance I still really loved this story. It’s a kick arse debut novel and I will be watching out for more of Nicole’s work in the future.
