Goodreads Synopsis:

Imagine waking up in the dead of night to find your hot new neighbour dangling out of your window. What’s more, he's clutching your tattiest bra in his hand.
What. The. Actual. Fudge.
When bad boy Alec Wilde moves in next door to Riley, sparks fly. After their 'unconventional' introduction, Riley is determined to get her own back. A nemesis is just the distraction she needs: inside, she's barely holding it together. It's game on.
But behind the banter, there's a side to Alec that Riley actually likes. How can she get through to the real him when she can't even take herself seriously?

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I love cute contemporaries and lately, I have been in the mood for them. I am really excited for this one because the description pretty much just made me giddy. I can't wait to start this.

Thank you so much to Jonathan Ball Publishers for sending me a copy of this book. Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book for free. Please note that this does affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

The writing in this book was fresh and young which worked well with the story. The dialogue was fun and the banter was very entertaining. The writing was also light and fluffy so it made it very easy to read.

Plot Thoughts:

The plot was both light and fluffy, making it a great contemporary, but it also had this other element that made it deeper. I really enjoyed this book because it was a slow-burning romance which meant that after 200 pages the tension was definitely there. The main focus felt as if it was not the romantic relationship between the two main characters but rather their friendship. I really enjoyed that the author did this as this allowed us to get to know the characters.

Character Thoughts:

I really liked the characters. Riley was almost the perfect main character. She was fun to read about and her voice as the narrative was fun and interesting. However, I did feel as if she lacked some dimension to her character. Alec was the typical brooding bad boy but he didn't actually feel like one. He lacked the actions to back up his title. Yes, he did flirt and make out with a couple random girls but other than that, there wasn't really anything that distinctly proved this.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I really liked this book. I was reading it in the wee hours of the morning and it was the perfect book. It made me laugh out a couple of times and I definitely had some swoon moments. I loved how this book focused on their friendship first and developed that before jumping into the romantic relationship. The writing was fresh and fun, the plot had a couple of really great moments. The characters were fun to read about and I definitely want to read more about them. Thank you so much to Jonathan Ball Publishers for providing me with a copy of this book!

Yours in Reading,
Melleny
