The Opposite of You - Rachel Higginson




The Opposite of You

Rachel Higginson



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.






An excellent contemporary romance that's actually not bogged down by unnecessary drama.  The beginning 1/3 of the book felt like it could have been going in a cheesy direction and felt repetitively tedious at times…but the last 2/3's were compelling readable.  In fact, I read that portion of the book in one sitting.  I liked the characters so much that I do believe I want to read the second book soon.  The witty banter between the H and h was well written and their chemistry was quite hot.
