Ladies & Gents,
I sold my soul for a hamburger.
And I have no regrets. When a girl is trapped indefinitely in an elevator with a smoking hot burger and an empty stomach, even the strongest of women will crumble.
The story goes like this: Bradley Hamilton, the most frustrating human alive, offered me half of his hamburger in exchange for a date. I took him up on the offer—while under duress—and now I’m stuck with the consequences. Specifically, the scorching kiss at the end of our date that has me drooling for more.
However, there’s one whopper of a problem. This man has been a thorn in my side for the last twenty years—ever since he moved next door and became my older brother’s best friend. We’ve gone head to head for years, and now, he’s trying to buy out my restaurant in order to plop one of his big fat gyms there instead.
I refuse to let him ruin my business. Unfortunately, Bradley Hamilton is like an order of french fries: you just can’t have one. It appears our lips are addicted to kissing. He’s alarmingly handsome. Deliciously confident. And worst of all? Underneath that salty exterior he’s starting to show signs of sweet.
Brad Hamilton is my guilty pleasure, my cheat meal, my greatest craving.
Which is why he’ll be one habit that’s hard to kick.
I had such high hopes for this book. When reading the blurb, I thought to myself that I just had to read this book. Unfortunately, this book didn't live up to my expectations. I did finish the book, but I had a hard time fully enjoying it.
The plot of this book is what caught my attention. Enemies to lovers is ones of my favorite genres to read. On top of that they are all also neighbours and former friends. This is why I was so excited to read the book. Add in the title Hangry, and I thought this would be perfect for me. The plot itself was written well. It was easy to follow along with.
The main female, Lexi, was a funny character. Honestly, her and her friends are the whole reason I enjoyed this book. Their banter reminded me of my friends. Brad disappointed me. I really wanted to fall in love with him, but I just couldn't. I felt he was very feminine, which isn't a bad thing. It is just not what I look for in my man.
There is some heat in this book. I liked the way the author teased us with these characters. She would start to heat us up, but then turn around and cool us back down. I actually liked this aspect of the book.
The writing style of this book was okay. The pace was steady. There is some time jumps throughout the book. I did like the humour included as well. The writing was clear and concise.
Overall, this book was okay, but not awesome. It didn't blow my hair back. I personally wouldn't recommend this book to others only because I didn't enjoy it as much as I could have.
Writing style: 4/5
