Series: The Dixie Warden Rejects #8
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: MC Romance
|I didn't even know I needed or wanted this book. In the book "In Skates Trouble" we read about Addison and her BFF Harper.|
Even though the book was about Addy, Harper played a pretty big part and you were emotionally invested in her.
Going into book 1, "Irresistible You", was a smooth transition and a no brainer for me because I WANTED to know about her.
IY was a continuation of IST, but obviously about another couple, but the timeline is right where IST ends. Harper is landed with her father's will and it's pretty harsh in her eyes. She must now bond with 2 estranged sister's, Isobel and Veronica. Seeing the story through Harper's eyes made me not so keen on Isobel, whether it was her fault or not. I felt truly bad for Harper. I didn't feel really invested in Isobel at this point, she seemed kind of boring and standoffish.
I'm glad I read "So Over You" though. As much as I loved Remy in IY, Vadim was a beautiful creation in all his Russian glory and Isobel was definitely not droll.
The story is one of disappointment for Isobel, but at the same time, she's finding herself, not her father's "winningest" girl.
The story is sexy and charged with a lot of tensions and energies, both good and not so good.
I thought it was a great continuation and the authors hockey knowledge and cultural knowledge seems out of this world (even if it's faked, it's still uber believable).
We're left with a pretty big bomb at the end of this story and I can't wait for Spring 2018.
Not to Mention the last (but not least) sister's story, which isn't next. If we're following that timeline though, it's understandable.
If you're a big sports romance, and hockey at that, this series is definitely for you.5*
I've read the previous book and novella and loved them both.
This author's writing style soothes my soul. I loved this one as much as I loved Irresistible You. I loved Vadim Petrov as much as I loved Remy DuPre.
I don't want to spoil the awesome story for you, so I'll keep this short. As you've probably noticed if you've read the previous book, there seems to be some history between our main characters. Obviously no warm fuzzy feelings between them, but professionals that they are, they try to keep the past in the past.
But with this insane chemistry and sexual tension between them - not to mention, Vadim has to sort of make amends for something - the past comes crashing back.
From enemies-to-lovers, these two are hilarious together. The banter, the back-and-forth is funny, yet there are many feels, as well.
I fell for these characters, for this series and I can't wait to read more!
I highly recommend it.
I voluntarily agreed to read an early copy of this book. My rating is 5 stars.
