The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
::..Reviewed for Red's Midnight Readers..::
I was kindly given an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I have given it 5 stars!
This is my first book by the talented Rachel Higginson and what a way to pop my cherry! When I first opened this book I wasn't sure what to expect but what I got was a sexy, feel good romance that had me hooked from the very beginning.
It was witty and clever and the slow burn romance was just what I needed.
Leading lady Vera was very likeable and very funny. I loved getting to know her character as she struggled to find her place as a chef once more. Help, however comes in the form of rival, Killian Quinn and the pair form an unlikely friendship. The pair have undeniable chemistry and I enjoyed watching their relationship blossom from hate to love.
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The writing style and the plot kept me turning the pages to find out what happened next.
My only issue and it's a very small issue was a lack of drama and angst from her ex boyfriend who appeared quickly and disappeared even quicker. I would have liked to see that story line developed a little bit more but other than that it is a very good book, I would recommend you one click.
I’ve sworn off men.
Famous last words, right? You’re expecting some epic tale of reluctant love and my dramatic change of heart? Well, you’re not going to get it.
I’m stubborn. And headstrong. And I’ve just survived the worst three years of my life. After escaping an abusive boyfriend to live in hostels and cheap hotels while I worked my way across Europe, I’ve come to two conclusions.
The first? Now that I’m back home, I’m going to squander my expensive culinary degree on a food truck that caters to the late night drunk crowd.
The second? I’m going to prove to the bastard across the plaza that my street food is better than his fussy five course monstrosities.
Killian Quinn might be Food and Wine’s Chef to Watch Out For. He might have a Michelin Star. He might have every food critic in the city wrapped around his too-large fingers. But he’s also pretentious and unbearably arrogant and the very opposite of me.
So he can keep his unsolicited advice and his late night visits and his cocky smiles. I want none of it. Or him.
I want the opposite.
