Knockout (Whiskey Dolls 2)
A small-town, enemies to lovers romance
It wasn’t fair that the man I hated with a passion was so freaking gorgeous.
Things in Layla Fox’s life were going great. She had a fantastic job, amazing friends, and a killer apartment. There was just one tiny glitch in all that perfect. Her upstairs neighbor was the very definition of tall, dark, and handsome . . . and she hated the man with every cell in her body.
Jude Kingsley was the most arrogant jerk she’d ever met, making the fact that she was attracted to him more than a little inconvenient.
When the two of them are forced together by Jude’s meddling grandmother, the bitter rivalry between the two feuding neighbors suddenly turns into something very different. And a raw, intense chemistry like theirs is bound to explode if they aren’t careful.
Review: Crazy and Hilarious
Knockout is the second book in this series, and I have to say that so far this is the best one. It’s a perfect example of how wrong you can be when you make snap judgments and assumptions about other people without knowing them. You might just find yourself in a serious prank-war.Jude and Layla hated each other from the very first meeting. They went out of their way to annoy and play pranks on the other person. The witty banter and chemistry between the two was off the charts, and this book truly had some hilarious moments. But my absolute favorite person in this book was Sybil. She totally stole the show and I want to be her when I grow up.
This is a fun and steamy small-town romance with a strong-willed female lead and a alpha-male brought to his knees. I have read and liked/loved the other books from this author, but this book felt like a step up. It just shined a little bit brighter, and while the writing is always great, this story just seemed to flow easier. A truly great story that is on my top 10 list of favorite books this year.
