Annika Dev is all about the romance. She believes in the happily ever after and her app strives to help couples make it. She may not be successful at relationships but doesn’t mean she can’t help others. The problem is that her company is not thriving and she is one step away from being evicted from her office space. To make matters worse, her enemy Hudson Craft has moved into the office space next to hers.
One upon a time, Annika liked Hudson, after sharing a week long affair with him in Vegas at a conference. She shared her idea of her app and suddenly he created an app called Break Up. The complete opposite of hers. Just to help couples break up effortlessly.
Hudson is taken back that Annika is so openly hostile with him. He doesn’t even understand until she accuses him of stealing her idea and making profit over it. Then they are constantly fighting and competing for the same investors. As Annika and Hudson spend time together, they realize that some of the previous sparks are still there.
I really enjoyed this enemies to lovers story. Annika is so smart, hardworking and passionate about her career. I can understand why she is so hurt that Hudson would take her idea. The thing is did he really take her idea? She keeps finding herself wanting to let go around him. She also worked on my nerves because she became so judgmental and wanted him to be something else.
The chemistry between the two characters is what wow me. It was a slow longing for one another. I kept waiting for them to finally get together and when they did it was amazing.
The ending is the only thing that held me back from completely loving this book because I felt as the author gave Annika her wish in order to complete their romance. It didn’t sit well with me. I expected a bit more.
Overall, fans of the enemies to lovers trope will love this book.
