Alessandra Torre tells a truly beautiful story of love, hate, revenge and forgiveness. Loved it!
Summer lived with her Mom in small town Quincy where everybody knew everybody..... including everybody's business and, for four years, Summer had been gossiped about and shunned because of something she had rightly, naively and recklessly done to her cheating Fiancé. So, when a gay Movie Scout needed her help with arrangements for a potential blockbuster they were going to film in her town, Summer jumped at the chance to help - and to make a much needed solitary friend. But what she never planned for was the gorgeous, talented and award winning Actor Cole Masten to completely rock her world..... and completely knock her plans for the future way off course.
Cole had his own demons that he was running from and his pampered life was going to be shaken up even more when he comes face to face with the one woman on the planet that didn't obey his ever word, pander to his wishes and worst of all..... didn't lust after him. Huh, not that he wanted to have sex with her either.... oh no - because she was hard-headed, opinionated and stubborn as Hell and every time they met they clashed, verbally sparred and the sexual tension climbed up another degree or three..... however she would make the perfect feisty Leading Lady in his upcoming film. But what he never planned for was that the frustrating, annoying and naive woman who would completely rock his world too..... because Summer had a heart of gold, was loving, generous and kind (well to everyone except him) and opened his eyes to real life..... and real love.
A very enjoyable listen as these two likeable characters challenged, fought, insulted and lobbed weighted banter like granades designed to destroy but underneath it all was mutual attraction, hopeless desire and sizzling chemistry that was, despite efforts to snuff it out, about to ignite and burn. The book was heavy on their backgrounds and they didn't actually meet until Chapter 26 but when they did the gloves were put on long before the clothes came off. It was fun, sweet, sexy, angst-ridden and entertaining to watch these two battle each other, battle their desires and finally give in to the heady attraction for each other that ended up totally consuming them both. Dual POV's, a Cockrel made for some amusing scenes and a narrator who's character's voices were all fine but, IMO, I didn't particularly like her Hero's voice (which wasn't sexy, male or Alpha enough for me). There also seemed to be a lot of quick Chapters.
Worth a credit? If you're after an easy, light and heartwarming journey of 'enemies to frenemies to friends to lovers' Contemporary romance then you've just found it. And yes, it's totally creditworthy too.

loved this book!!!! APretty Woman type of love story. character developement was phenomenal. by the time the two met you really understood what their lives were really like. And wow does the fireworks fly (Southern Style)when these two finally meet face to face. I loved the heroine's sharp wit , southern charm, and take no s*** attitude. Absolutely refreshing for the girl to make the hero work for every inch of her respect. The narrator was brilliant in her delivery. kept great pace and her accent was spot on. she was perfect for this book. Absolutely credit worthy or dare I say , Buy it outright. definitely worth every cent. I listened straight thru, couldn't put it down. Truly the best book I've had the privilage to listen to in a long time. Will definitely be keeping a lookout for more from this author!
