Friends come and go. I wish this one would go.

 I know Denver Talcott hates me as much as I hate him, but since we’re sharing custody of the same friend, I can’t get rid of him. Believe me, I’ve tried.

Worse, he’s now working at the same startup as me. My dream job cannot be his dream job, because my dream is to not see him on a daily basis.

Denver… You wouldn’t think a prickly introvert could also be a busybody, but it’s possible. I’ve met one. Sadie raises my blood pressure with her mere presence, and she can’t ever know that. She’d weaponize it. And then sell the recipe to other sadists.

Plus, I have another secret—this pesky attraction I feel towards her.

It’s got to be one of those inappropriate reactions to stress, like when you laugh while being reprimanded, or see your to-do list and decide to take a nap.

I’ll be fine. It’ll be fine. I just won’t ever look at her. Except now we’re desk mates at work…

Book Review:

I loved this book! I haven’t read all of the books in this series yet, but I still loved reading Sadie and Denver’s story! They were so cute and funny even as Sadie tried to kill Denver with a dodgeball 😉

Can you unfriend someone in real life? Because if you can, Sadie would gladly unfriend her annoying neighbor, Denver. Unfortunately, she’s stuck with him at her house and at her work. But as she spends more and more time with Denver, she finds out that it’s actually kind of fun messing with him. And it might be even more fun to work with him 😉

Okay, first of all the banter in this book was awesome! Sadie and Denver have amazing banter and insults against each other. They are so funny, and I loved watching them prank their office mates too. And the dodgeball thing was just amazing! It’s hilarious because they are trying so hard to pretend that they don’t like each other.

But they slowly fall for one another and break down each other’s walls too. I really liked how there wasn’t a specific moment where they fell in love or started liking each other. Because in a way, they had never really hated each other. They just had to learn to let go of their past judgements of the other person.

And it was sweet to watch their character development. Sadie had a lot of trust issues she needed to work through while Denver was always trying to save people. I think it was cute to see how they matched and balanced each other out. Sadie needed to learn how to relax while Denver had to learn how to make commitments.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves romcoms! It is a clean, sweet, amazing read 🙂
