The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson

Why Do We Like This Book?

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.

Favorite Quotes

This man that had gone from idol to enemy, to reluctant friend, to fantastic kisser.  And not only that he kissed me beyond all reason and rational thought, but he’d given me back whole chunks of myself that had been missing.
His chest brushed against mine, his length pressing at my core. “So impatient,” he murmured.  And then there was no more reason to complain.  He moved inside me, filling, satisfying, driving me to a breathless precipice.
“I want to be challenged and pushed and held accountable for this talent of mine.  I can think of no other person that does all three of those things as effortlessly as you.”

The Book Details
Publisher Synopsis

I’ve sworn off men.

All 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.

About The Author
My first foray into the Romance genre came my freshman year in high school English, where the teacher had us all read books from several different genres. So, my first book boyfriend and PnR introduction, if you will, was Richard Merlin, from The Wizard of Seattle. Prior to that, I’d only read Fantasy or Sci-fi, with a little teen horror thrown in for angst. I was reading The Vampire Diaries decades before it was even a twinkle in the eyes of the producers. Now, I am addicted to PnR, always reading at least one book a week about vamps, wolves, angels, demons, Fae, or overall magic.
