I loved this sexy, funny, if not very cheesy, enemies to lovers, to friends to lovers, sappy romance. The story follows Mia Corelli who returns to her childhood town to stay with her best friend Tessa Kelly, for the summer. Her only issue is Benjamin Kelly, Tessa's older, horrible brother, who used to pick on her constantly. Oh and one other thing, she's still a virgin, and yes she wants to lose that card before she sees her best friend who is as far from a virgin as you can get. What better way to lose it than with a one night stand. Although I think she should have done her homework a bit more before picking up a stranger in a bar. Thoroughly enjoyable, addictive romance, written in dual POV, with lovable characters and lots of chemistry. I loved the narration, spot on.
Now grown into a beauty Mia is dreading staying with Tessa, her best friend, for the Summer because of Tessa's brother Ben and his once hurtful words and hatred towards her while growing up and those taunting words still haunt her today. Mia decides to stop en-route to lose her V card and picks up a very hot, very handsome and very buff guy at a Bar who is all too willing for a one night stand with her and he turns out to be very understanding of her situation and is a very tender, passionate and thoughtful lover.
With that taken care of and fond memories of her wild night and sexy lover she continues on to Tessa's house only to discover that her passionate lover was Ben.... of all the random people on the Planet she gave it up to Ben the hated brother and her anger towards him knew no bounds. But Ben's reaction was the opposite, he couldn't get the mystery woman out of his mind and was shocked but delighted to discover he had a second chance with her. So he took it every chance he got but Mia kept shooting him down and bringing up his hurtful childhood taunts which made him rethink his tactics.... he was quickly losing the battle but was determined to win the war.
Great main and secondary characters (especially a Dragon obsessed sweet little 3 yr old), an entertaining plot with no terrible secrets just some bad childhood memories that were eventually forgiven.... well he was irresistible in his Cop's uniform. Lots of sex, romance and laughs and the plot had some tension with a bitter ex, some angst as Mia's feelings changed and some heartache because Mia's Mother was battling Cancer. Dual POV's and Stella Bloom did an excellent job at bringing the characters and situations to life.
Worth a credit? What a great start to a series that I'm definitely going to get into and book 2 is already in my cart. A truly yummy enjoyable listen that's very creditworthy.

Interesting plot, great characters and I didn't want to stop listening. It was funny, sweet, hot and the characters felt realistic. J. Daniels' writing pulls you in and you can't wait to find out how Ben and Mia's story ends. And Sir Nolan.... I just love him. He's so precious.
