I was a bit worried starting this as I did something I never do, and that was read some reviews. Some weren’t very glowing but they were made before the book had been rewritten so maybe that’s the difference?? I loved the book. I loved Presley and Haden. She was a bit annoying at first being super rude and not giving Haden a chance at anything. I get his mannerisms and personality were getting on her nerves but he was redeeming himself but she just couldn’t see it. Haden was such a conflicting character, one minute I hated him, the next I loved him. The way Kat described him I could totally imagine him in my head. The whole book was so like this and I found myself immersed in their story. I enjoyed the love triangle, and for anyone who doesn’t like cheating, there isn’t any.
Miss OCD meets Mr player. Presley has ended the perfect relationship with her long term boyfriend because something was missing. Mr player wants miss OCD so he decides he's going to wind her up. (All he needs to do is move her perfectly arranged stationary but decides to go to the extreme). She hates him and then one night in a moment of weakness Mr player seizes his chance. It's a beautifully written romance with good characters and dialogue. Could see this as a movie. Well done and worth a look. I loved it.
I've just read Chasing Love, Chasing Us, Chasing Him, and Chasing Her, and decided to detour to these books before I finish Chasing Fate and Chasing Heartbreak. I read this book a couple of years ago when it was titled #Jerk and its so damn good to revisit these characters! Such a fun read, great storyline with the right amount of smut to keep you hooked!! Finished the book in just over 24 hours!
I had to push through the beginning with the hope Haden would redeem himself later. I was wrong. Without spoilers, this book took an unexpected and unpleasant turn. I love a good enemies to lovers as much as the next girl but this was not well executed.
It was an ok read but too many overdone cliches. I don't get why an adult male chose such an infantile approach to getting a woman's attention. And as it progressed neither of them spoke about their feelings but continued with the stupid avoidance. Presley repeatedly thought of Haden's immaturity because he was younger but she was no different. Instead of talking to Haden about things Eloise said she just reacted. I'm sick of scenes portraying females as these stupid, rash beings. And only after he married Eloise he realized he loved Presley and made a mistake so takes off for the airport to admit his feelings. I thought it could have been better but the cliches didn't do it for me.
Oh Kat, I have been meaning to read this story for years and now I want to kick myself for waiting for so long. This was a perfect enemies to lovers story, rife with your brand of angst. I loved Jaden and Presley's story. I loved that their love wasn't "cookie cutter" but hard won.
