"This is a series. I read the 2nd book first and still laughing out loud about the goofy way the book was written!"
"Bromance boys!! This. Was. Amazing!<br/>Book #2, enemies to lovers trope!<br/>It was funny, entertaining and even thrilling!<br/>Povs Liv and Mack, their stories colide with a rough start. LIV gets fired as a result and witnesse something really perterbing between her boss Royce and another employee Jessica . Liv reaches out to Mack asking him for help and they team up to take down Royce. Things get real hot with Mack and Liv, you get their back stories and then you also have the group of men form a ops team. I found myself reading the whole works play by play on edge. They take Royce down! You get really vested and then comes Mack's backstory, (the founder of the bromance club) and it's heart wrenching but you understand how this character turned to reading romance novels. <br/><br/>Livs backstory is continued from book #1 when her sister Theas story is told. She is built up as a very stubborn, bitchy, cold brat who really hates all men. In this book her character is heightened making her so so irritating and I often thought " just stuck it up already, stop being such a batch!" (It gets repetitive). But I suppose that this was exactly the point to build her up as an unlikable character and see her evolve into a relationship while facing herself. Clever!<br/><br/>Loved the humor! The who story just so entertaining. Plot structure was perfect!"
"I just love Mack. Probably like one of my fav mc. Just an amazing couple ❤️💋"
