Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is a cute opposites-attract, enemies-to-lovers rom com that is book 5 in a series, but can be read as a stand-alone. The book is an easy read and the cute teasing and banter between the main characters, Hannah and Easton, is a fun read.

Hannah and Easton have been at odds since they were children. Easton mercilessly teases her, and Hannah gives it right back. Easton is part of a wealthy family that owns Wilder Adventures, an adventure tour group, and Hannah is one of their guides. When a you-tube influencer chef joins a new program the company starts, Easton sees his chance to branch out into something away from his family, and Hannah sees her possible chance at love. They convince Easton’s brother to let them lead the chef’s tour groups, and both put their plans into action.

The trouble is, Hannah needs help spicing up her wardrobe, and suddenly Easton finds himself giving her fashion advice and ogling her as she tries on outfit after outfit (cue Pretty Woman montage here). Hannah, unaware of her affect on Easton, then asks him for kissing lessons. Suddenly the couple becomes aware of their years-long desire for each other, but they fight admitting it to themselves.

Both characters are so cute. Easton has a bad-boy reputation but realizes his past encounters with women are empty and is surprised that he’s actually looking for more. He’s secretly soft-hearted and it was so sweet to see that side of him come out. Hannah is frank and bluntly honest. She has a painful past that makes trusting anyone almost impossible. As she spends more time with Easton, she slowly starts to let him into her life, but one wrong move will close the doors permanently. I enjoyed watching Easton slowly start to seep into Hannah’s life, and got a kick out of her awkward encounters with the influencer chef.

This is a sweet book, with a few spicy passages, that can easily be read in one sitting. If you want a light, fun book to escape with for a few hours, this is the one for you. I haven’t read any of the previous books, but I’m definitely going back to read them.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and Jelsba Media Group. All opinions are my own.
