Attracting, repelling, and colliding, their chemistry—to say the least—is explosive. Strangely, it isn’t with the one who held her heart, but his asshole of a best friend, who will stop at nothing to keep them apart.
br>“I’ll let you in on a little secret. Do you want to know why he’s sidelined you?” His gaze meandered over her head, sweeping the vicinity before bending down conspiratorially. His lips ghosted her ear. “Your type is merely the intermission before the grand finale,” he said in a low, smoke-rasped voice. “A dirty little secret. A warm hole to bang out and blow his load before moving on to something more refined. Stop wasting your time.” And on that note, he ambled off, leaving her adrift in a scrim of self-doubt and cannabis smoke.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Enemies to Lovers/Friends to Lovers

That is right up my ally. I love seeing these relationships blossom into something so much more.  I crave for those first struggles of accepting unwelcome feelings, the build up tension and then the explosive bang at the end. I live for these stories. Sadly I'm rarely compensated for reading them. They usually leave a bad aftertaste after wasting hours reading horrible dialogue with even worse inter rambling monologue.

So you can imagine this was a delightful surprise. I loved the characters, their complexities and flaws, their ambiguity and realism. I savored the angst (which is a rare occurrence). I adored the tension, that uncertainty of what was to come. I relished in that feeling of terror that any time now the rug was about to be pulled from under me.

Definitely one of the better new adults out there.

One of those books I read on a whim. Lately these books seem to be the ones I end up liking. 
Let me know what you think :)
