I kind of enjoyed that they were both damaged by their upbringings to be wary of marriage and commitment, but for different reasons. But I felt for both of them. I’m not saying they didn’t frustrate me at times, but not enough for me to lose my love for them…I knew they’d get there.
The funny thing is, I’m not sure what I love about each of them individually, though they’re both very interesting individuals with a lot of sass and snark. But it was the two of them together that had me captivated. I think it’s because their relationship had so much push and pull — this amazing chemistry, with both of them alternating between fighting it and capitulating. And it was just fun to watch them both slowly start to realize things — start to let their guard down with one another. I just really enjoyed that journey.
As always, the secondary cast was awesome. I seriously think Ms. Layne writes some of the best friend groups.
Also, shout out to Juno who was adorable.
And now we move on to Kennedy and Kate. I really have no idea what’s behind both of them, but I’m excited.

This book can be read as a standalone or part of the series.
Matt runs into problems at work when he gets photographed partying hard! He needs to clean up his act, and fast if he doesn't want to lose his job and clients. Matt has one person in mind to help! Sabrina! Sabrina is Ian's best friend and Matt's frenemy with benefits. She is the perfect woman to play Matt's fake girlfriend, show the world Matt is settling down and leaving his partying ways behind him.
I loved the chemistry between these two characters. The friendships and loyalty!
"I offer them solutions. For a price, yes, but I don’t deal in extortion. I’m upfront with how I work and what they can expect from me from the very beginning."
Matt has been recently caught in a scandal during his cousin's bachelorette party and now his bosses want him to fix his reputation by finding a good woman to be at his side. But, Matt doesn't believe in love and marriage due to some of the relationships he encountered in his past and he goes to his friends to ask for help. Ian being Sabrina's childhood bestfriend, suggests Matt to get help from her.
"My friends are right. She is the last woman on earth to be at risk of falling for me. Because Sabrina Cross hates my guts."
Unfortunately for Matt, one encounter gone wrong between them four years ago has made Matt & Sabrina mortal enemies who are constantly at each other's throats. Too bad for Matt, Sabrina also doesn't believe in love and she's the only person whom he can trust fully to not fall in love with him because of the obvious animosity between them. But, you know what they say, there's a fine line between love and hate and that's what exactly happens in Matt & Sabrina's case.
“I want you because you’re my mortal enemy, Sabrina.” “Why?” His eyes lock on mine. “Because of all the women in my life, you’re the one I can count on to never fall in love with me."
It was too entertaining to see them fight their feelings and constantly question whether whatever they were doing together was real or not and their constant banters made the book have it's own charm. When I first read about Sabrina in the first book of the series, I was sure that I'm going to love her and I was right! She was strong, confident, independent, sassy but also vulnerable, alone and in need of someone to love, (whether she admitted that to herself or not.) Matt was a really good guy. He was kind, considerate, total book boyfriend material but a total tool when it came to his feelings. Sometimes, I just wanted to get into the book and shake him to make him realise what he's doing. He frustrated me but at the same time, I enjoyed the angst that was created in those situations.
"I don’t believe in love—but I do believe in friendship. And these girls right here are as good as it gets."
Overall, the chemistry was intense and tension between Matt & Sabrina was sorching hot. I loved the side characters. The bond that the girls- Lara, Sabrina and Kate formed with each other in such a short time was heartwarming. They found a family in their friends and now I'm going to read Kate & Kennedy's book next. I recently saw that Lauren is going to write a book about Jarod and I'm definitely interested to see who he will get paired up with .
