I don’t love him. I don’t even like him.
I just want him.
Eli Loveless was my nemesis from the first day of kindergarten until we graduated high school. Everything I did, he had to do better – and vice versa. The day he left town was the best day of my life.
Ten years later, the day he came back was the worst.
Now he’s my co-worker.
Grown-up Eli Loveless is sexy as sin. He’s hotter than asphalt in the summer. The irritating kid I once knew is gone, and he’s been replaced by a man with green eyes, perfect abs, and a cocky smile.
It’s bad that I want him.
It’s worse that he wants me back.
There are looks. There are smirks. There are smiles that make my panties burst into flame.
And then there’s a shared kiss that leads to the hottest night of my life.
This is no office romance. This is a five-alarm fire.
What’s a girl to do when the man I can’t stand is the one I can’t stop lusting after?
Enter into a friends-with-benefits agreement, of course.
No dates. No relationship. Just blisteringly hot sex, because if there’s one person I could never fall for, it’s Eli.

My Review ….
Violet is on a date from hell! Not only is the man rude, he’s obnoxious and blown up with his own self importance! But the worse part of this date, (and there is plenty wrong with it) she’s left washing dishes as she can’t cover the bill!
Eli was never going to come back home, but working and being back home is actually better than he thought. Well that was until he sees whose washing his dishes!
The internal dialogue Violet has with herself did have me chuckling. I liked her no nonsense attitude. I liked she could laugh at herself. So when Eli has me questioning who Violet really is, I know I’m going to be in for a good read.
This enemies to lovers book had me putting the kindle down at the wee small hours of the following morning. I couldn’t put it down. It was smart, funny, sassy and sexy. Eli had enough alpha to make you want to smack him and then kiss him. Violet in turn just made you want to know why…. Why did they always fight? Why can’t they get over their petty feelings about growing up and always having to be better than the other person?!
There were a few additional characters that I loved, mostly Eli’s family. They were a riot. And stole some of the book for themselves.
And when Eli and Violet decide on a no strings kind of thing, you know it won’t be long before they start breaking their own rules. I know they have history, I know the competitiveness as kids was a little rough at times, but come on people that should be ancient history.
And the obligatory break up moment, I had expected more! I didn’t even break out the tissues or ice cream!
So whilst it’s a good story, it’s not a great story!
