What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
One crumbling house. One exploded truck. And two people who think they can’t stand each other.
Arden Weathers. She’s a girl on a mission, and that mission most certainly doesn’t involve Brody Blastoviak, the hometown hottie who made her college prospects go boom, and not in a good way, six years ago.
Brody Blastoviak. He knows better than to stick his you-know-what into Crazy. So why is he losing his cookies over Arden Weathers, the uptight chemistry partner who “accidentally” torched his truck back in high school?
Now, older and wiser, these former classmates are supposedly on the same team – working to restore a crumbling beach house that both of them want to claim as their own. Too bad for Arden, Brody holds not just the deed, but all of the cards and clout, too.
She’s a broke college graduate while Brody is not only hotter than ever, but obnoxiously rich and famous, thanks to Blast Tools, a rags-to-riches brotherly venture. It’s all so stupidly unfair, especially when Arden makes an appalling discovery. Turns out, she’s not nearly as immune to Brody’s charms as she thought.
And Brody? Let’s just say, this tool-toting billionaire is reluctantly learning that the girl of his nightmares just might be the girl of his dreams.
Thoughts on Boom
The kind of contemporary romance that makes you smile. It’s sweet…. well, once they get over themselves. And they do have quite a bit to get over. I mean, if either of them had just talked things through it works have been an incredibly short book – but no. It’s misunderstanding heaven and they BOTH fall deep into the trap….. it is a Enemies to Lovers romance, after all.
Fortunately, like all good romances (or main stream ones at least), things are resolved, feelings exposed and the future looks bright. It’s a charming read, though not a deep one. Great for pool side or casual reading.
First Person, Multiple POV
Character Age Range
My Final Verdict on Boom
I classify strict romance novels into several categories – this one falling in line with casual. It’s sweet, a bit quick, fairly shallow on plot but over all, a decent book that inspires smiles. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
