From New York Times Bestselling Author Kendall Ryan comes a sexy and sizzling, enemies-to-lovers romp with bite.
He’s rude. Arrogant. And too hot to handle.
And she’s stranded with him for an entire week.
He knows the sexy stranger doesn’t belong in his small town, but he’s determined to keep her there. The second she opens her smart mouth, he wants to swap a whole lot more than insults with her.
She’s got a secret. But he’s got his own agenda.
Another fun, fast-paced, laugh-out-loud, sweet, sexy romance from Kendall Ryan.
Kendall has a really strong brand and I always know what to expect when I pick up one of her books. Sexy Stranger ticked all the usual boxes and it was a quick, entertaining read with a great HEA.
Luke Wilder owns and runs a whiskey brewing company with his brother and sister and he has lived a small town existence for most of his life. He had a promising football career and he went away to college but returned home after his father passed away, to run the family business with his twin, Duke (hardy, har. Luke and Duke are actually nicknames but it was funny!)
He has been burnt in love so when sexy stranger Charlotte rolls into town with her expensive car and her fiesty mouth, he has no interest in pursing the spark of attraction that ignites between them. Charlotte is on the run from those who seek to control her life and the last thing she wants is some redneck hothead pushing her buttons. Despite the fact our couple got off on the wrong foot, they soon make amends and quickly agree to a fling. Both know it can’t go anywhere because he is stuck there and she is leaving.
The banter was great between our couple and Luke was swoonworthy in the extreme. I enjoyed the setting of the book and the whiskey business was unique. I enjoyed watching Charlotte relax and let her hair down and the romance was electric. Kendall writes great romantic/sexy times.
An inability to properly communicate had the potential to rip our couple apart but all ended up in a good place.
The writing and pacing were solid and it was a thoroughly enjoyable read.
Actual 3.5 stars.
Thanks to the author and Inkslinger PR for providing an ARC of this book which I have voluntarily reviewed.
