Lucy Clark has just bought a house with her worst enemy.

From the moment Lucy – Miss ‘my self-worth comes from setting myself impossible standards of perfection’ – meets Zack – Mr ‘I’m your infuriatingly laidback yet impossibly ripped new yoga teacher’ – it’s hate at first sight.

So when Zack puts in a competing offer to buy her childhood home, there’s no way she’s backing down. After losing her business and her best friend in one great margarita-themed disaster, there’s no way she’s losing her beloved house. Except there’s one tiny problem – she can’t actually afford it.

When Zack suggests they buy the house together, inspiration strikes. Lucy will wear him down, with a never-ending supply of lists and rules, until he’s begging for escape. That’s until Zack arrives, with his non-existent sleepwear and a ridiculously sincere appreciation for the simple things. Suddenly, Lucy finds herself re-evaluating her own warped priorities.

Will living with the enemy end up with Lucy losing her sanity? Or is it true what they say – that there’s a thin line between love and hate?

An absolutely page-turning, laugh-out-loud rom com, perfect for fans of The Hating Game and The Spanish Love Deception.

This is a cozy romance novel where two people at first hate each other and then ended up falling for each other!

Lucy Clark is a workholic and with her friend’s request she starts yoga. While doing yoga, she meets Zach and the two didn’t get along well. In fact, the two cross the path when Zach offers to buy Lucy’s childhood house. The Lucy and Zach becomes housemates.

Not very sure about why there were low ratings but I actually did enjoy the book. I can say that the first part of the story was boring but then it kind of got a little interesting.. There were some funny parts in the book that will actually burst into laughter and I do like the how the romance slowly developed between Lucy and Zach. The only negative things about the book is there were too much of dialogue and of course the ending was very predictable. However, the writing was really good. Even though it seemed to me that many readers did not like the Lucy character, I thought she was actually an OK character.

If you like romance where with enemies to lovers trope in it, then this book is one for you–worth four stars!

Many thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
