<— OMG!! THIS IS A SUPER FUNNY, and yet swoon-worthy romance series that is right up my alley! That book right there to the left? HAD ME HOOKED. Total 5 stars from me (my review).
Maryse: The Opposite of You did not have any kind of wallop, or twist or major angst, or anything crazy in the least. But what it felt like to me, was solid writing with that realistic, fun, “adult” (or should I say “new adult”) feel from way back when they were all so awesome. And entirely from her POV so it kept me always “feeling” like her, and worried, or crushing, or fuming that felt just so natural to me. And her “issue” that was sort of the “scary part” was one that made sense to me, and that many women experience.
Amy: Me after finishing the last page of The Opposite of You: *twirls around while giggling with head back* *sighs dreamily and falls back on fainting couch* I second what Maryse said about The Opposite of You. And I just need feels when I’m reading, but what brings on feels can vary from day to day for me so it can get difficult at times.
Suze: I want to thank you for your high praise for The Opposite of You. It was fantastic. I loved it. Great story. Could not put it down.
Sharon: I am so glad I picked back up The Opposite of You! It was such a slow burn, but it wouldn’t have worked any other way. Killian was the perfect amount of broody male without being over the top. I liked how he made his way into Vera’s heart. Its definitely a series I will follow now. I’m giving it a solid 4 stars!
D.G.: Started The Difference Between Us!!!! So excited because I FLOVED Killian and his BEARD!!! Can’t wait to visit will him and hot bestie Ezra!!!
And I’ve just finished the latest release, and loved it too. My review is coming soon, but right off the bat, I’m letting you know, for me it was 4.5 stars!!!! Yep. This series (at least to me, and so far) is the whole package. It has that perfect level of comedy (never over the top but will have you grinning and chuckling non-stop), and quirky-real heroines, realistic, and even infuriating “meet-cutes”, a delicious slow burn, angsty, believable backstories, and even very specific personal lives that have us connecting to the main characters, heart and soul!
Nothing too crazy, nothing too traumatic, every bit as realistic as our own lives, but also the amazing love story to boot! And!!! Each book can be read as a standalone, but I do recommend reading them in order, since the featured characters in each book are from a main group of friends (and co-workers). We get to know each one more and more as each of their stories is released.
About book #1:
I’ve sworn off men.
Famous last words, right? You’re expecting some epic tale of reluctant love and my dramatic change of heart? Well, you’re not going to get it.
I’m stubborn. And headstrong. And I’ve just survived the worst three years of my life. After escaping an abusive boyfriend to live in hostels and cheap hotels while I worked my way across Europe, I’ve come to two conclusions.
The first? Now that I’m back home, I’m going to squander my expensive culinary degree on a food truck that caters to the late night drunk crowd.
The second? I’m going to prove to the bastard across the plaza that my street food is better than his fussy five course monstrosities.
Killian Quinn might be Food and Wine’s Chef to Watch Out For. He might have a Michelin Star. He might have every food critic in the city wrapped around his too-large fingers. But he’s also pretentious and unbearably arrogant and the very opposite of me.
So he can keep his unsolicited advice and his late night visits and his cocky smiles. I want none of it. Or him.
I want the opposite.
