Favorite Quotes: Unable to stop them, I feel my eyebrows moving up and down in what is probably supposed to be sexy in my drunken mind, but from the crease in her forehead and scrunched-up nose, it reeks of creepy. Moist towelettes are my brother’s answer to getting more sleep. He stays out late, snoozes the alarm an extra thirty minutes, and uses the sheets to cleanse his nether regions—his words, not mine. Carrie’s sister missed her flight, and I live a short way from the church and happen to be her size. That’s what it boils down to. Her sister and I share the same voluptuous curves, the way Carrie put it. What she means is we are both built like linebackers with broad shoulders and hips to match. Her eyes widen in shock. I fear I broke her when she stares at me as if I just asked her to burn her pompoms. If I am dreaming, I’ll kill anyone who wakes me up. My Review: I love the role reversal in this storyline as the female lead character of Jillian was the most emotionally distant and closed off and also had the more physically demanding and macho job of a firefighter, while Sam, the male lead, was the more nurturing and thoughtful of the two and worked as a realtor. Both characters were invitingly quirky, highly appealing, and likable. Once they got past their initial antagonism they shared a playful manner with each other, love of all things Star Wars, and a clever and sardonic wit. I adored them and enjoyed their verbal sparring as well as their sweet and steamy romance. The premise was unique and interesting while the writing was engaging, cleverly amusing, and pleasantly entertaining.
A Little Spark? These two make a lot of sparks right from the beginning. I was a bit confused about the enemies to lovers part in the blurb because seriously, Sam is the absolute sweetest guy. I don't think anyone could actually be enemies with him. They do have their differences, mostly coming from Jillian's insecurities and some misunderstandings, but this pair is so good together that you can't help but root for them. The author gives us plenty of feels - everything from laughter to tears to sharing in some heartbreak, but the witty banter quickly brightens things up before they get too heavy. This is my first read by Amy McClung, but it won't be my last. This engaging, fast-paced romance is one that I can easily recommend.
