Vitoria Miene lives in New York - on the opposite side of the country as her best friend. After careful thought, she decides to pack everything up and move to Seattle. There is only one problem with her plan - Wes Novak. He hates her and does everything in his power to make her miserable.
Wes has never detested anyone as much as he does Vitoria. He believes she is evil incarnate. If she wasn’t best friends with his brother’s fiancée, he’d never have to see her again. Unfortunately, he sees more of her than he wants to. So much so, he is starting to have trouble keeping his hands off her.
Wes and Tori fight every step of the way. They combust in each other’s arms as much as they bicker. Can they stop battling long enough to find the one thing they both want - love?
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
Love it when I can look at a cover periodically throughout a listen and see the character. Great job here with the long hair and tough cowboy face. I have to admit that I didn’t like Wes at all for most of the book. His inability to actually listen to Vitoria really irked me. And Vitoria was, well, not the brightest gem in the cave. How she failed to see any connection between Eric, her sister, and the crime boss was beyond me. It dragged through many unproductive but sexual encounters between the clueless couple. The ending took me by surprise. Unfortunately, while the initial storyline was rather slow, the juicy conclusion was sudden and brief.
Erica Wilder did a fantastic job. She switched between character voices flawlessly.
👍🏻 Solid ONE THUMB!
We met Vitori in book 1, she was BFF w Ginny. From the first time that she laid eyes on Wes at the ranch, she was smitten; but the sexy cowboy was a jerk. Now Tori has decided to close up her office in NY and relocate to Seattle so that she could be closer to her bff. Imagine her surprise when she arrives at the airport to find Wes waiting for her. He was asked to meet her and take her to dinner w Ginny, her fiance', Dallas. Wes continues to be a jerk face and Tori is baffled. Could it be that he's getting her mixed up w her twin? This scenario drags on for a bit...Wes being a jerk and Tori not understanding. The thing is that they are attracted to each other but Wes is fighting his feelings. We eventually get to the heart of the matter w Wes...lots of drama w bad guys, guns, dead returning to life ;-)...sorry, no spoilers. Great book, just wish that Wes was not such a jerk for most of the story...I almost wanted Tori to make him work a bit harder for her forgiveness.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
