I Flogging loved this so hard!!!! It seems I read this whole book in a fight with each different feeling trying to become the winner, I was crawling in emotions they were coming out of my pores. This story begs you to read without feeling anything , only to laugh at you and say “see, I knew you couldn’t last” I was tearing up in the first 5%. I knew this story was going to kill me and it did. It broke my heart then mended it all back together in a beautiful bubble with hearts and rainbows .
Ella James kicked some serious butt with this enemy to lovers tale. She doesn’t just get you with the smoking hot Burke visuals (and trust me ... there were many visuals) or the funny as hell banter, or sexy “melt your panties” sexual chemistry, she kills you with those two absolutely beautiful kids who just melt every single piece of your heart.
Burke & June ... Brought together through a current tragedy, they struggle with loss, guilt, pain and trying to do what’s right for their niece and nephew. June was awarded guardianship but Burke wants to take them home with him. He decides to go visit and thinks it will be easy to have her hand them over . Oh boy!!! Is he in for a rude shock . June is stubborn , smart , sassy, and hard headed, she will not stand for this smoking hot moneybags who thinks he can come in on his white horse to save the day. She doesn’t need saving thank you very much!!! and soon they are both giving us exactly what enemies looks like ... up close and personal.
I could not stop turning the pages, I was so obsessed with finding out everything there was to know about Burke, this man intrigued me like no other , I wanted to know what made him tick, I loved how the smaller picture of him gets so much bigger and time goes on. He is just stunning!!!! His tragic past gutted me, I had tears .. so many tears for him. I wanted a HEA he deserved and nobody would ever be good enough .. except June . As a leading Lady she was the absolute star. While these two find it difficult to lay some insults to rest, they also struggle with letting down their guards . Once they do though ... magic happens, like I mean ‘those hearts that constantly keep bugging out your eyes’ type magic. It’s electric and makes you feel like a giddy lovesick teenager.
I felt ALL THE FEELS.
This book is a ‘Must Read’ it was one of the easiest 5 stars I’ve ever given. The journey to finding peace and happiness was hard and didn’t come without pain, but when you find somebody who can open you up, make you vulnerable while making you strong is someone to hold on to and never let go.
