KU Subscribers, this one is #FREE for you!!!
Erin Doyle can’t stand man whores, and she particularly can’t stand Brendan Langstrom — the guy who avoids relationships like the plague and never sleeps with the same girl twice. She and Brendan have waged a war of mutual disdain for years, but when Brendan picks up the pieces after Erin’s world unravels, they’ll both be forced to admit that beneath their dislike is something else entirely — something they’re not supposed to feel. Because Brendan isn’t just her nemesis … he’s also her fiance’s best friend.
Oh what a complicated web Elizabeth O’Roark has weaved with Drowning Erin!
A enemies to lovers romance with a forbidden twist, Drowning Erin is a twisty little romance. Brendan and Erin, despite the sizzling chemistry, truly dislike each other, but is that really the whole story? No, of course not. There is so much emotion to this book that lies under the surface of the blurb. This is a true example of not judging a book by its cover, or in this case its blurb. There is a lot going on under the surface Brendan’s outer facade. Erin is being pulled in two different directions by her own doing. She is trapped by her own image of a perfect life, so much so that she fails to see the truth.
I quite enjoyed this, but I did not enjoy the switching between past and present. It’s not just this book. That kind of storytelling is just not my jam. I found it a bit more distracting that Erin’s POV was present and Brendan’s was the past. There was a method to the madness, which I recognized, but I personally didn’t care for it. Other than that, I liked the book very much.
