Loved the story. SY was good as always. The female narrator was a bit to handle. The author painted one picture of the characters and the female narrator painted another. Very confusing at times. Wished I had not bought the audible version but read it myself.

At first I wasn't too sure if I would enjoy this book. It starts off a little slow but I ended up loving this story so very much. It had a everything, humor, angst (but not too much), and even some really cool drink and food recipes. It was a perfect blend of emotions and had a kick butt spit fire heroine. Definitely recommend this book.

I’ve listened to books by this author before and they’ve been a mixture of ok to good, but they’ve really pulled one out of the bag with this book. Genuinely really good!
It follows the typical path you’d expect from a romance book, but it was the best version of the marriage of convenience turning to love storyline I’ve ever heard. I’ve listened to way over 1000 books and I’ve got quite picky with what I expect. It’s fairly cheesy and predictable towards the end, but in that satisfying joyful way you’d want from a great romance film so that’s ok in this genre (what you want when you listen to a book like this after all). I rarely give 5 stars and hate all the inflated reviews out there for average books, but this one really deserves its rating.
Sebastian York was exceptional as always (his voice is made for sexy male narration after all) but it’s the first time I’ve heard Diana Luke and she was brilliant! Her accent was beautiful and had a great range of voices.
Not sure whether it was the writing or the narration (probably both) but I was fully drawn into this book and the characters. I loved that the male lead was awkward too rather than the typical dark and mysterious or macho. It was more akin to books by Penny Reid (fantastic author with great characters) than the normal boring romance replicated banality out there.
The only negative was the recipes (which sounded delicious and made me hungry) which probably work well in a written book at the start of some of the chapters, but were pretty lengthy to be read out on audio so it disrupted the flow a bit. Since the recipes seemed good I’ve not knocked any stars off for that though.

Ooh, I love a storyline with an alpha male and a take no sh!t female lead, and this one definitely falls into that category. Jackson Boudreaux is rich and arrogant, but underneath his harsh exterior he’s got a soft centre. However, when he demands a table at Bianca Hardwick’s restaurant, neither of them are prepared for the sparks that fly. Enemies to lovers is one of my favourite genres. The storyline is tried and tested and there really aren’t many surprises but it’s so well written with wonderful characters, lots of sexy time and a few emotional scenes had me hooked. A lovely addition to the end of some of the chapters were recipes for drinks and food. The final recipe for a cocktail, “Slap Slap Kiss” is on my to do list. Although as I listened to the audio version of this book, I couldn’t screen shot any of the recipes, that though is the only downside of this audio. Perfect narration from both Sebastian York and Diana York definitely makes up for it.
I listened to this on audiobook whilst walking and the story kept me entertained and wanting more enjoyed it thoroughly
So loved these two fire crackers .. they were brilliant together.. loved their relationship and everyone from the restaurant to her momma and the Buttler ..definitely ... definitely worth the time to read this awesomeness book .. loved it..💕❤️💕❤️💕
