Format: ebook from the digital library
Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don’t even like each other…which would explain why their marriage lasted only twelve hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourselfmantra. Maybe she’s too similar to the rugged fisherman—or just what he needs.
I’m not sure how this is possible, but Christina Lauren has done again and made me fall for another couple in their crazy world of romance. Harlow and Finn are just…there are really no words to describe the two of them. I mean, if it’s insanely possible I actually liked them more than I did Mia and Ansel. There was just something about them from the start that I really liked. And yeah, I should have guessed when they first showed up in Sweet Filthy Boy that I would like them, but considering that book was more focused on Mia and Ansel, I couldn’t really get a feel for the others yet.
I think it must be my thing for romance, but as soon as two characters start picking on each other, throwing insults and the like, I start shipping them automatically. I blame my love for Sailor Moon for this. But when Harlow and Finn started doing that in the first chapter no less, I fell fast. Their relationship was so…odd. I mean, I liked that they tried to just be friends with benefits – or in this case enemies with benefits – first, but as soon as they started connecting and talking and letting things off their chests, I knew that that wasn’t going to last long. But even when they started to fall for each other, I was just totally captivated by what was going on. Especially that scene in Harlow’s car right before the big Hollywood party? I was a goner.
Final Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. I wish the next book also focused on Harlow and Finn, but it’s time for Lola and Oliver to have their turn. And considering they both don’t think the other is in to them, you know it’s going to be good.
