Rating – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Good NA romances are hard to find, because a great deal of them end up being so cheesy that I run the risk of a roll-induced eye injury.
So, despite being a tad unrealistic, this book was a pleasant surprise.
What it’s About
Ten is a regular at Em-Dash, the town’s only bookshop, but not for the books – he mainly goes for the free Wi-Fi and for the opportunity to irritate the gorgeous shop owner, Kali. And despite her less-than-booming business, Kali isn’t quite as welcoming as you would expect, trying her best to run Ten away from her shop. Ten, however, is determined to get to know her, and weasels his way into co-planning the town’s Halloween ball, much to Kali’s disappointment.
As the two work together, Kali slowly starts to warm to and embrace her feelings for Ten – but she’s still clinging on to her dark secrets.
When I said previously that this book is slightly unrealistic, I really just meant that Kali is downright rude to Ten initially, and instead of filing a complaint against her shop, he keeps going back for more. Maybe I’m wrong, but if I was rude to a patient like this for no apparent reason, I’d probably get sacked.
Overall, though, I loved this book, which was a pleasant surprise because I read Christi Snow’s Guarded Desire and rated it one star.
