But as Blake begins the transformation from hot mess to smokin’ hot, Ian realizes he’s in danger of breaking his cardinal rule.…
What I thought about the book:
This was ok. Not an amazing story and I wasn’t too keen on the main male character. He was a bit too much of a fan of himself and the book as a whole was very tropey.
I did really enjoy the banter between the characters. It was a fun relationship to watch grow and the supporting characters have a strong presence.
Ticks all the boxes for contemporary romance formula fiction so if you’re into that you will probably enjoy this.
Though it’s certainly not the best romance book I’ve read I did enjoy it enough to read the whole thing and I will most likely read the next book in the series.
