The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson
Oh, how I love a good enemies-to-lovers romance, and this one has it all. Snark, awesome side characters, character depth, and angst, plus a great slow-burn romance. I loved Vera and Killian’s cooking challenges, and the best friend had some great one-liners. I highlighted whole passages that had me cracking up because I couldn’t do just one line. It takes almost the whole book before they give in to their carnal feelings, but you’re so caught up in the story you don’t realize you’re at 75% and they haven’t had sex yet. But, don’t worry, once they confess their love, it is ON! Rawr.

I’ve sworn off men.
Famous last words, right? You’re expecting some epic tale of reluctant love and my dramatic change of heart? Well, you’re not going to get it.
I’m stubborn. And headstrong. And I’ve just survived the worst three years of my life. After escaping an abusive boyfriend to live in hostels and cheap hotels while I worked my way across Europe, I’ve come to two conclusions.
The first? Now that I’m back home, I’m going to squander my expensive culinary degree on a food truck that caters to the late night drunk crowd.
The second? I’m going to prove to the bastard across the plaza that my street food is better than his fussy five course monstrosities.
Killian Quinn might be Food and Wine’s Chef to Watch Out For. He might have a Michelin Star. He might have every food critic in the city wrapped around his too-large fingers. But he’s also pretentious and unbearably arrogant and the very opposite of me.
So he can keep his unsolicited advice and his late night visits and his cocky smiles. I want none of it. Or him.
I want the opposite.
