This was sooo so good!! My first read of 2020 and its a win! I’d have read some of the other books in the series but when I saw the blurb, I wanted to read this bad. Cause we all know I adore a good enemies to lovers/hate to love trope book.
In Lucy Parker’s headliners, two rival TV presenters with their own shows are forced to work together to save the channels sinking morning show or they can kiss their careers goodbye. Sabrina Carlton and Nick Davenport have had rocky relationship, with what started out as a mild pretend snark has turned into full out war and hatred. Now they have to very reluctantly work together to save their jobs, which they have both worked very hard for.
Theres are a lot of shenanigans happening in this book, I just had so much fun reading it. Not only because Sabrina and Nick have such a wonderful chemistry but because the whole of their corner of the world is filled with drama, angst and craziness (the whole shebang). The drama and angst aren’t over the top, they balance really well with the romance and the relationship developing between Nick and Sabrina. I don’t know ,it had been a while since I felt this so engrossed in a book, I read it one sitting. This could totally be made into a movie and I’d watch it.
Sabrina and Nick are opposites of each other and that’s pretty obvious from the get go, but they come together and learn from each other. I loved how their relationship developed, with the anger to sparks to understanding, passionate and sweet love (still full of starkness and teasing though)! I also really liked Sabrina and Nick’s relationship with their siblings. There is a little focus on their families and it made the characters more fleshed out. There’s also some cutes scenes of Nick (and Sabrina) with his niece. There is also quite a bit banter in the book (an enemies to lovers book without banter would just not do really) which I also enjoyed immensely.
We also get cameos of the other couples in the series, which was also lovely!!
There was a lot of funny stuff in the book, with Sabrina and Nick having do stuff they’d rather not, things going absolutely wrong. The falling in love and them growing closer to each other while the career aspirations they have might go down the drain, if they don’t achieve the success demanded of them while dealing with the sabotager added a bit of an extra oomph to the story.
I don’t want to give away lots, just because I went in there pretty blind and really enjoyed it. Overall, (I’m just saying the same things again but!!) this was really lovely, the ridiculous things are balanced with the more mature stuff and the romance with the humour and drama. It worked really well, also the festive seasons in the book made it all the more I don’t know sweeter and perfect for a cozy winter night read. It felt me feeling very happy, warm and satisfied. I want more books from the author!!!
