Overview

Amber Miller has worked hard to get her small business thriving. Now the Wright family wants to tear down her store to put up a mega center. What's even worse, the guy who broke her heart in high school is the new CEO of Wright Inc. He’s just as infuriating now—and just as tempting—as he was back then, but she isn't giving up without a fight.

Logan Wright is back in Pine Falls for one reason: to turn his dad’s failing company around. His plans should put them on the upswing. But he didn’t count on Amber Miller standing in his way, as fiery and stubborn as she was years ago. And the more time he spends with her, the harder it is to resist falling for her again. The only problem is he's everything she doesn't want.

This was a great read. I loved the strength and fierce way Amber lived her life. She didn't back down from a person insulting her or anything standing in the way of what she wanted. And Logan kept right up with her. Their bickering was great foreplay and excellent form of communication. I enjoyed their chemistry, fun and hot at the same time. I adored the people of Pine Falls. They are as a community should be. The ending was so sweet and romantic. Major swooning. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. I thought this was a cute book, good timing of events, no dragging. Logan and Amber knew each other in high school and were attracted to each other, but ended up having a misunderstanding, so Amber disliked Logan. They were also from different sides of the track and Amber was bullied, and no one stuck up for her. Logan comes back to town to make a mega hardware center, which will destroy other small businesses. One of those businesses belongs to Amber, she has the local hardware store that has been around for years, she will not go down without a fight, and rallies the other businesses. They end up spending time together, and decide to act on the attraction. They end up falling in love. (

It's a great read. I loved both Logan and Amber. They've perfect chemistry. Story is also good. As far as contemporary romances goes this one is quite good. Amber owns a hardware stone in a small town. Now her livelihood is threatened by Logan Wright who wants to build a mega store in this small town. He wants to buy her out. She can move her store but with a mega store hers small store will not survive. So there is only one option, she must fight him. Mega store must not be built. Unfortunately, things will not be easy for her. Because Logan is rich and his family has influence. She on the other hand comes from wrong side of track. She can't fight this battle in Logan's world. It doesn't mean she will give it up... There is another problem, as soon as she see Logan again after all these years she realises that the attraction they felt for each other when they were teenagers is still there. So not only she has to fight for her business but also for heart... Logan cannot break it once again. Logan was never been able to forget Amber. She is hot headed and temperamental but she is also irresistible. As much as business matter to him, he must admit that Amber matters more. But with his father's failing health, his mother's disapproval, their past and present rivalry, winning her over might not be easy. In any case he is going to try, maybe she feels the same about him... It's an interesting story, well-written, and full of drama. Although it was a bit predictable but then most contemporary romances are. ;) I enjoyed reading it and will recommend to anyone who likes a good romance novel.

Amber Miller has pulled herself up by her boot-straps. Her mother lives in a trailer park and has always paid more attention to her hair and make-up and men than to paying bills and putting food on the table. Her father drifted in and out of their lives sponging off her mother. But Amber has worked hard and now she owns a small hardware store where she has built a thriving business on giving customers personal service (I've rewritten that twice but it still sounds dirty). Logan Wright is the son and heir to Wright Inc. He has returned to Pine Falls after his father's heart attack to find that the business is failing. After making a lot of hard decisions and laying off a lot of people he decides that the only way to turn the company around (and give back jobs to the community) is to build a large DIY mega-centre in Pine Falls. But to do that he needs to buy up the last five small businesses which are situated on the plot he has chosen - guess where Amber's store is? Despite practically running the company into the ground Logan's father is reluctant to relinquish the reins of power to Logan and he and Logan's mother have decided that he cannot become full CEO until he has married a 'suitable' woman from the right family background! To add insult to injury, back when they were at High School Amber and Logan made out a few times but that all ended when Amber was the waitress when Logan took another girl on a date at the restaurant where she worked. When Amber goes to see the Mayor to plead the case for the small businesses he suggest that she garner some goodwill in the community by helping to build playhouses for a non-profit childcare provider. Quick to ensure he isn't disadvantaged Logan also offers to help. As Amber and Logan work together and bicker over the plans for the playhouses they rekindle their former attraction, but can the son of one of the wealthiest families in town ever be serious about the girl from the wrong side of the tracks? And how can Logan square his feelings for Amber with his worries about the business and making jobs for the town? I liked this but I didn't love it. I thought Logan's parents were like cartoon villains and then with a wave of the magic romance wand, poof, they saw the error of their ways. Both Logan and Amber were just too nice for any semblance of a rivalry to seem plausible. This felt like a PG-rated romance with all the heat and fire surgically removed. It was sweet and felt more like a throwback to the John Hughes teenage angst films of the 1980s than a modern romance. Coleen Kwan is still a one-click author for me - maybe I need to pay more attention to the publishing imprint? I received a free copy of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

Looking for a delightful second-chance romance with great characters, dreams and schemes then look no further, go read this novel! This is the story of someone from a wealthy, privileged background, the CEO of a large company with many employees who is trying to keep their business afloat. His plans, however have detrimental consequences for someone he once cared for . . . Back in High School, Amber Miller always had a crush on Logan Wright, in fact they really seemed to connect one night but that was only for that one night, then she had to serve him and his girlfriend who were out for a meal. Amber never wanted a relationship like that. She’d grown up knowing her father alternated between her Mum and his wife, never paying maintenance or anything to support her and also making her the butt of jokes at school. She has worked hard to turn the local hardware stall she now owns (well has mortgages on!) into a thriving business, becoming a valued shopkeeper in the community because of her care and consideration. When she learns that the local wealthy Wright family are planning on tearing down her store and those of the neighbouring businesses, she’s determined to fight their plans to construct a huge mega store. The catch? Well the CEO of the Wright family business is none other than Logan Wright - and the chemistry between them is as volatile as ever! Can you be enemies in business but lovers at night? A great story which you can imagine actually happening. The regrets and misunderstandings from the past and present together with their continuing attraction make it a riveting read. She’s hot headed and likely to say what she thinks, so there are some laugh out loud scenes and as for his parents and the woman they’d like him to marry, well!!! The backstory and overcoming those events is almost as critical in this as the business dealings. It is a great story where competitors actually work best together, especially when love conquers all - even his parents! Many thanks to the publishers for gifting me a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review.

I received this book via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. Logan and Amber, what do I say. The whole scorned lovers to lovers is well written. But it appeared that the hatred was a little more one-sided than an equal. Amber had her heart broken by Logan during the most awkward years of her life, High School. Fast forward years later and her fate rests in his hands. How could this be happening to her? Hasn't she already suffered enough? Her passion leaps off the pages, you understand her outburst, you understand her despair. What I didn't understand right away was his tolerance, his compassion, his despair. Author Coleen Kwan takes a hold of the reader and takes us on a roller coaster ride with twists and turns that you didn't see coming. I liked how both sides of the relationship is affected by outside forces. It made them more equal even though they are clearly not socially equal. But the parallels are interesting, Logan is a new CEO, Amber is the owner of her own business, Logan's Dad is having a medical issue but hiding something else, Amber's mom had a medical scare and is hiding something else. It's just nice to see a balance of their lives. I really enjoyed the book, the story is strong and the characters are developed at a nice pace that keeps the reader engrossed. The supporting characters are even developed and made a part of the story rather than just a thought. I wish that it hadn't ended so quickly. With the build it felt like it just all clicked in one page and the epilogue left me wanting just a little more. But a nice solid book.

This is a great enemies to lovers/second chance story that had me captivated from beginning to end. Ms. Kwan has a great writing style and the characters in this one will touch your heart. When high school sweethearts Amber Miller and Logan Wright go head to head over a business deal, tempers fly and hearts come to life. Logan needs this deal to save the family business. Amber can't lose the store she's work so hard to buy. Neither can back down no matter how much they may want to. Can they find a compromise that will give them both what they want?? I highly recommend this one.

Like a pair of loving arms, Ms. Kwan's characters envelop her readers in comfort, providing hope and laughter at the best of times, along with the perfect escape in some of the worst. KIssing Her Enemy proves that the easy road is not always the best one. Amber has had her heart broken, dreams crushed and is on the verge of losing her business, when she crosses paths with the man who holds the fate of her happiness in his hands. The original "heartbreaker", at least in her case Logan Wright. For Logan, business is everything. He has a lot to prove and not an abundance of time to do so. So why is he on the verge of risking it all for a second chance at love? Anytime that I read Coleen Kwan, I get goose bumps. Realistic situations, heartwarming moments and temptation at it's peak, make for my kind of heavenly bliss.
