Description

Nemesis (n.) 1) An opponent or rival whom a person cannot best or overcome.

2) A person’s undoing

3) Joshua Templeman

Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman hate each other. Not dislike. Not begrudgingly tolerate. Hate. And they have no problem displaying their feelings through a series of ritualistic passive aggressive maneuvers as they sit across from each other, executive assistants to co-CEOs of a publishing company. Lucy can’t understand Joshua’s joyless, uptight, meticulous approach to his job. Joshua is clearly baffled by Lucy’s overly bright clothes, quirkiness, and Pollyanna attitude.

Now up for the same promotion, their battle of wills has come to a head and Lucy refuses to back down when their latest game could cost her her dream job…But the tension between Lucy and Joshua has also reached its boiling point, and Lucy is discovering that maybe she doesn’t hate Joshua. And maybe, he doesn’t hate her either. Or maybe this is just another game.


Review

I normally don’t go into reading with high expectations even if the book has great reviews. But this book lived up to its reputation. I absolutely loved it. I love the enemies to lovers trope. It gives the book such a fun and interesting vibe. It’s not a typical romance which I like. The buildup between Joshua and Lucy is just perfect. I loved the back and forth between them. It created this immense sexual tension that you really got from the authors writing. I couldn’t read fast enough I just had to know what happened. I loved all the little details the author put into the book.
