|They say opposites attract, but this is just ridiculous.
Aubry Kaiser doesn’t like people—actually, that’s not right. She loathes people. With her crippling anxiety, there’s no way she can demo her favorite video game at a convention with five thousand other people. Maybe if she brings someone to act as a shield…
But the only person available is the sexy cowboy she can’t stand.
Quinn Baldwyn is in a mess of his own. He’s been dodging his wealthy family’s matchmaking attempts—and life advice—for years, but with his sister’s wedding on the horizon, he needs of a shield of his own.
He and Aubry can barely hold down a civil conversation, but in bed…fireworks. And the closer they get to Quinn’s sister’s wedding, the more he realizes that he might actually like Aubry.
Now it’s up to him to convince her she might actually like him, too.
I really loved this. It was refreshing to read about a heroine who was neurotic, introverted, nerdy, rough around the edges, and fierce, who knew that she wasn't "normal" and embraced it. She was strong and a feminist and stubborn. And Quinn was almost the exact opposite. Easy-going, charming, outdoorsy,... But also fiercely independent and strong.
This was a Brazen story, so lots of super hot sex scenes (holy moly, understatement!), but had such great depth to it as well. The borderline vitriolic banter between Aubry and Quinn is actually fun, and you can't help but smirk when the two start to recognize - and fight - the crazy chemistry they have. The two push and pull at one another in all ways and in all instances, and make each other better.
I appreciated how relatable and not overly dramatic the big wrench in their relationship was, as well as how tentatively they both approached that relationship to begin with (once they realized what they wanted). The way they interacted felt natural.
By the end of this, there is no doubt that these two fit. And the epilogue was awesome!
