I didn’t mind this book. Basically an enemy’s to lovers story centred around Ciaran and Saylor (Ariel) Saylor is the daughter of a white collar criminal who has embezzled lots of innocent people’s money and run off. So, dodgy types are after him, and come after his family. Primarily consisting of Saylor, Mum Kelly & little sister Mila. After being badly beaten, and traumatised with dead men in their home Kelly, tells Saylor to ring a man by the name of Matt, who works for a mysterious secret agency called ‘Rogue’. Their specialty, extracting people from life threatening, dangerous situations and giving them new identities. While Mum & Mila go in one direction to a safe house, Saylor goes with Matt to live with him and his nephew (Ciaran) .
What starts as distain & hate quickly turns into attraction between the two housemates. A relationship that is forbidden under the ‘Rogue’ rules. (But these two flaunt the rule pretty quickly) Everything is going along as you would expect with this kind of novel. We get the girls school BF (Winter) who’s sole purpose is to explain for us readers the background of the boys in the story Kai, Silas, Ciaran, and everyone in the small towns relationship to ‘Rouge’ (Also to drag the female lead to social events. Parties, Fight Club, Winter fun at the Cabin ...and so on.
The guys BF (Kai) who pushes the two together with his flirty, witty banter. He’s the one who can see the relationship developing before our couple can. And the dark, moody friend Silas, who has s huge chip on his shoulder over some past drama between Kelly (mum) and his dad Jason.
The plot for this story was pretty responsible. Although, I was waiting for things to go to s$&t towards the end...& it did, What was annoying about the book was how the two main characters were soooo bad at pretending they didn’t care about each other. Even the author didn’t even bother trying to keep it on the down low after while. All those ‘ heat up the back of my neck’ ‘ my body was tingling. I new he was watching me’ ‘My treacherous body/nipples’ Uugh! When he was in the room we both felt the electricity in the air’ ... Come ON! Does everyone who writes these novels pull these phrases out of the same ‘How to...’ book? This is the only part of the book that annoyed me, otherwise I would have given it five stars
#MNGirl was such an addicting read that will have you devouring this book as fast as you can. Saylor's story is incredibly heartbreaking and it was horrible to watch her and her family being punished for her fathers actions and crimes. On the night of her seventeenth birthday, her life is changed forever. Horrible events lead to her being moved away and hidden for her and her families safety. This is where she meets Ciaran and even though he is horrible to her and shows her no kindness what so ever, she is somehow drawn to him. Their relationship is the classic enemies to lovers tale and this story is full of secrets, lies, betrayals, heartbreak, lust and plenty of twists and turns. That ending destroyed me and leaves us impatiently waiting for book 2.
