Living Hell, a fake engagement with a recipe for disaster…
Tyler and Iona fell in love in high school but it didn’t last. So many years later when she came back home, well there was still something in the air, a mix of angst, sexual tension and of course the weight of all the unsaid things and unsolved relationship. Maybe it was time to get closure, right?
I appreciated the colorful characters and the craziness in the air, everything going on fast paced but sometimes I felt like the chemistry was off. And mostly driving me crazy but I guess it was the point.
I appreciated reading about these two former lovers with their heavy baggage, when the hate and love were definitely blurred. I was looking forward to reading Tyler’s story and found about that woman who crushed his heart. For someone who was supposed to be over, he was acting the contrary. Iona knew how to push his buttons like no one else. A fake engagement with a recipe for disaster.
Some situations were pretty hilarious and I enjoyed Elizabeth Lynx’s sarcastic humor. I usually didn’t mind some craziness and wildness in a story but sometimes it was going off in all different directions that made lost my focus at times. It was a great enemies to lovers story but the scenario was just a bit too much to me.
