Huge thank you to Gallery Books, NetGalley, and Christina Lauren for giving me the opportunity to read this eARC a few months ago! The following will be an open and honest review.
You guys….I have seriously come to the conclusion that I will love every single thing that these two lovely ladies put out. I first read and loved the Wild Seasons books and then quickly moved onto the Beautiful Bastard series which I also devoured. They will never cease to make you laugh, cry, and blush profusely.
“Hi.” I hold out my hand. “I’m Evie.”
“Is that short for Evil?” He pretends to be scared as he tentatively returns the handshake.
“Are you sure you’re Gryffindor? Your laugh makes me think you have a secret lab and are building an apocalyptic robot dog that’s going to eat every smug person here. Slytherin for sure.”
“It’s short of Evelyn. The cackle is my gift. It keeps the delicate ones away.”
I definitely enjoyed this one in particular as it had some angst in the form both MCs, Carter and Evie (dubbed Evil), fighting for the same position at their merged company. It was an interesting take on the hating to loving trope because they had met BEFORE the chaos started and really hit it off. So that spark was there the entire time, even while the fighting commenced. Their prank war was HILARIOUS. I have not laughed out loud so many times at a book in quite awhile which was a relief after the emotional roller coaster that was A Court of Wings and Ruin.
I HIGHLY recommend as a quick, fun read. Whether or not you’ve read anything by them or not, this one is a keeper.
