About the Book

Erin Doyle can’t stand man whores, and she particularly can’t stand Brendan Langstrom — the guy who avoids relationships like the plague and never sleeps with the same girl twice. She and Brendan have waged a war of mutual disdain for years, but when Brendan picks up the pieces after Erin's world unravels, they’ll both be forced to admit that beneath their dislike is something else entirely — something they’re not supposed to feel. Because Brendan isn’t just her nemesis … he’s also her fiance’s best friend.

My Review

Ratings: 4 stars

**I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book generously provided by the author. Thank you for the reviewing opportunity!** 

On the outside, Erin has it all - the perfect fiance, a stable job, and a house anyone could only dream of. For years she has deluded herself that she was content with her life, although she has skeletons in her closet, she hid them well from her fiance all the while pretending that she was nothing less than perfect.

"I like the fact that when Rob sees me, he sees the girl I might have been instead of the one I actually am."

But her Stepford life came to an end the moment Brendan Langstorm waltzed back into her life. Not only does she hates him, he was also her fiance's best friend - the ultimate forbidden fruit. Yet Brendan's return doesn't only cause old feelings to resurface, he brought the old Erin back to life and made her realize that her life was a lie, and she has been drowning all this time.

We first met Erin and Brendan in Waking Olivia (another sob-worthy book I highly recommend!!) and you wouldn't have an inkling that both of them may have ended up together. Erin and Brendan were such polar opposites but I couldn't help falling in love with the soft and kind-hearted Erin and the troublemaker Brendan.

As expected of Elizabeth's writing, they are filled with angst, emotions and has the ability to bring out your worst cry-face. Erin's struggles and emotions at being caged and hopeless were beyond heartbreaking, and her relationship with Brendan wasn't all fluff and sugary sweet. Although Brendan wasn't your classic prince charming and it takes time for him to grow on you, he was always a sweetheart in my book. A player with many layers.

Vividly touching and heart wrenching, drown yourself in Erin and Branden's story....and perhaps also in your own tears :p

*This book can be read as a standalone.*
