Ever since I read, and loved Twisted Love, where we get to see a few fiery interactions between Jules and Josh I knew I needed to read their book. We get enemies to lovers between Ava’s [the MC of Twisted Love] BFF and older brother and it is steamy.
Seven years ago Jules befriended Ava and Josh has been against the friendship ever since. Only seeing Jules as a bad influence who’s prone to trouble Josh doesn’t want his younger sister anywhere near her and has been very vocal about it.
A lifetime of people disregarding and making assumptions about her has led Jules to despise anyone who looks down on her especially overconfident, and rude, future doctors like Josh Chen.
Both Jules and Josh are positive they know exactly who the other is…and hate them. Little do they know when forced together they may find they’re not that different after all.
I was not prepared for how good this book was. A fan of enemies to lovers and the BFF’s brother tropes I knew I was going to enjoy reading this book I just didn’t anticipate how much. Not only do we get great tropes between Jules and Josh but we also get to see Josh handle his severed relationship with his father and his ex-BFF Alex. Getting to see both characters face their pasts and overcome them had me cheering for them individually as well as together.
Knowing nothing about book four, which will feature Stella and Christian, I’m excited to see what happens. I feel like we’ll finally get more information about the stalker Stella dealt with, and since Christian is in security maybe she goes to him for help…really curious to see their love story unfold.
