Series: First Comes Love #1
on December 14, 2020
Genres: Adult Contemporary Romance
First law of magnetism: opposite poles attract.
Single mom Vivian has been burned by love once before, and her job as a divorce lawyer has presented enough evidence to convince her there are no good men left in New York City.
The worst offender is her new neighbor: Dr. Lucas Keller, a couple’s therapist whose piercing blue eyes and flawless dark hair are just as annoying as his bad temper.
But when Luke starts poaching Vivian’s clients by saving their marriages, she makes it her mission to force him out of the building to save her practice. But it’s Luke who gives her the perfect opportunity when he proposes an unexpected bet.
With their offices at stake, Vivian and Luke play the field of love in a fierce battle of wits that quickly turns hot and personal, especially when Vivian’s daughter gets involved. Now, taking down Luke has become more than business for Vivian. It’s become a pleasure—and soon, Vivian and Luke will realize how pointless it is to fight the laws of attraction.
Opposites Attract is available for Free!
So this book was a little different in that usually the male character is the a-hole that you don’t like. For me, it was the female main character, Vivian, that it took me a while to warm up to. Yeah, I get all the issues she had in her past that made her that way, but I feel like she was really rude and mean for a long time to Luke. However, I guess that would fit into their stereotype careers, she was a divorce lawyer and he was a couples counselor. But the enemies to lovers relationship definitely worked in this one, because it wasn’t necessarily a lot of insta-attraction or insta-love to start with. I liked that aspect. There were a lot of good extra parts to the story and that made it turn all really pretty good.
I really enjoyed the different dating disasters the two of them went on. Those were so funny, and so true to how things seem to be in the dating world these days, or probably always have been that way. You think this person is really good and someone you’ve connected with, but then they tell you how they are flat-earthers or something like that. Or they bring their mom on the second date, because if their mom doesn’t like you, it won’t work out.
There was one or two kind of awkward written moments for me in the book, the main one that keeps sticking out as I think about the book is where the main characters says to herself that she’s glad the shirt covers her “buttocks”. To me that is an awkward word for someone to be thinking about themselves. It also conjures up when Forrest Gump explains where he got shot and I just hear his voice saying it. Other than that, really it was a good read! And I’d be interested to see who else will be in future stories in this new series.
Oh, and I loved how the epilogue was done! Funny and cute!
