Rating: 4 stars
I was given an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review
Trey is an asshole and everyone in the small town of Garden Grove knows it. He is attractive and uses that to his advantage when taking up with female company, but only for one night. He spends his days working hard as a mechanic but at night often spends time at a bar. This is where he meets Raven.
Raven is the new girl in a small town, moving to town as she has a job as a baker, working with her best-friend from college. As a way to celebrate her move she and her friends go to the local bar. While waiting for her friends to show up she asks guy if the seat next to him is free. The response is not something she bargained for.
Trey doesn’t make the best first impression but she can’t seem to get him off her mind. Trey and Raven clash, he assumes she’s hitting on him and she just wanted a seat. Thus begins the battle between the two. Raven is attrracted to Trey but she also wants to understand why he acts the way he does. When she hears a little about his past from her friend, she is able to relate a little of what he went through.
They often cross paths and the sizzle between them builds until their shared desires can no longer be ignored. They start a relationship of convenience, but there is something more between them. But Trey is having trouble coming to terms with his feelings for Raven.
This was my first read by this author and I did really enjoy this story. I do like a good enemies to lovers story and this one was entertaining filled with great characters.
