It’s an angsty, new adult, enemies to lovers romance
Reviewed in Australia on 24 August 2020
A brand new series from Michelle Heard and it’s jam packed with angst, hatred and a whole lot of sexual chemistry. If you’ve read Michelle before than you’ll know this is the next generation from her previous books.
We see a friendship group being torn in two when two of their friends have drawn their lines for battle and it doesn’t look like anyone was coming out of it unharmed. But I loved the groups loyalty. I LOVED the banter (there’s a lot) and it just made me excited for the next books in this series. I gotta tell you though, keeping up with all the different names, potential pairings and whose child is who, whose friend was who, was confusing and exhausting to keep up with at best. I was lost, A LOT! But aside from all the side characters, if you focus on who this story was about, it’s actually pretty good!
Jade and Hunter’s relationship was so damn dysfunctional and semi-toxic but at the same time innocent and intense. It’s a weird situation that I couldn’t let go of. I wanted to know more, despite it being like watching a car crash right in front of you.
I had a problem with Jade as a character. She let her childish temper, logic and heart get the best of her. And despite her going through a pretty bad time, I didn’t agree with what she did. Hunter, however, bless his cold heart. How he managed to deal and withstand Jade’s hatred while simultaneously hating her and loving her at the same time, I’ll never understand. I didn’t agree with some of the things these characters did but I did agree that they made a good pair. Once they put their differences aside, it was like it was always meant to be and that’s what I love about this story. How easy it was for them to be together after going through such a hard time before that.
Overall, it’s a pretty good story! I finished it in one sitting. It’s an angsty, new adult, enemies to lovers romance and the Heirs are here to make their impression.
