I am delighted to share my review today for Opposites Attract by Camilla Isley. I had seen this book and the reviews during a blog tour and decided that it was one I would enjoy. I enjoyed it so much I read it in one sitting back in February. Yeah! I am still trying to catch up with posting my reviews of my purchased books.
First law of magnetism: opposite poles attract.
Single mom Vivian has been burned by love once before, and her job as a divorce lawyer has presented enough evidence to convince her there are no good men left in New York City.
The worst offender is her new neighbor: Dr. Lucas Keller, a couple’s therapist whose piercing blue eyes and flawless dark hair are just as annoying as his bad temper.
But when Luke starts poaching Vivian’s clients by saving their marriages, she makes it her mission to force him out of the building to save her practice. But it’s Luke who gives her the perfect opportunity when he proposes an unexpected bet.
With their offices at stake, Vivian and Luke play the field of love in a fierce battle of wits that quickly turns hot and personal, especially when Vivian’s daughter gets involved. Now, taking down Luke has become more than business for Vivian. It’s become a pleasure—and soon, Vivian and Luke will realize how pointless it is to fight the laws of attraction.
If you are looking for a rom-com that provides a wonderful escapism read then this is one that should be on your list.
Lucas and Vivienne don’t exactly hit it off on their first encounter. She barges past him to get on the subway and he ends up missing out on the office he had his eye on. As if his day hadn’t got off to the ideal start, it then seems to get worse.
Having offices next door to each other doesn’t make for the calmest and relaxing work area. But as the title suggests, opposites attract, but do they really. It seems that every time these two meet there is a barb. They do bury the hatchet in the form of a bet, the winner gets the corner office, the other leaves the building.
Now while there is some animosity between the two, they are adults and a third party almost forces them to be civil to each other. There are some serious moments and this adds more of a depth to the story. Overcoming problems of past and present is something that the author has weaved into her story.
I really enjoyed this tale and devoured it easily in one evening. Quite a quick read but one that did have me sniggering as well as giving me a lovely heart-warming feel. One for those looking for a bit of light-hearted, fun, escapism in their reading and one for the rom-com fans.
Many thanks for reading my post, a like or share would be amazing 🙂 xx
