Being in love with your brother's best friend is kind of normal but when the feelings are reciprocated, things can get a little complicated especially when business intersects with the personal. Ava and Barret are no exception to this. They've both had a thing for each other since they were younger and when they decide to start sneaking around, what started as fun gets way more serious. I'm just going to saying this right now. I love these types of storylines. They keep things interesting and this book definitely held my interest.
I love how determined and independent Ava is. She loves her family and her employees enough to sacrifice everything and is not a damsel in distress which for me is bonus points. This character in general is authentic and believable. She isn't one dimensional and has character growth. The same goes for Barret. There are so many sides to him and it was nice to see that displayed when he was with Ava, or his family, or in his work environment. His character is also authentic and relatable.
For the story itself, Kendall did an amazing job showing the confliction both characters were experiencing due them sneaking around and hooking up behind the brother's back. Add in the plot twist of Barret's law firm being the one's trying to take Ava's business, and the story just evolved and got more interesting. That's one thing I love about Kendall's books, and that is that they always keep you guessing and provide the right amount of entertainment mixed with truth. She gives us readers a realistic story about love and how complicated it can be and get but also shows that when it's real, it's worth it. Overall, I loved this book and you will too if you read it. So go buy it and show Kendall some love!
A contrarian at heart. I prefer The Lord of the Rings over Harry Potter and Narnia. I love Country Music and John Hughes movies and am the worst at singing the correct lyrics.
