“First it was love. Then it was war.
Work hard, play harder.
All I wanted was a weekend in the Hamptons, but what I got was forty-eight hours of quality time with my former business partner. My ex best friend. The girl who walked away without so much as an explanation the second sh*t got real.
I’m going to make her sorry she was never mine.
Work hard, forget the rest.
All I wanted was a peaceful weekend alone at my boss’ Hamptons manse, but what I got was forty-eight hours with the guy who convinced me to fall in love with him and then did the unthinkable.
He broke my heart once, and I’ll be damned if I let him anywhere near it ever again”
This was a novella so there wasn’t really much to analyze. If there’s anything I love in this world, it’s the rivals-to-lovers story. Something happens in their lives where they are arch-nemeses. Once they spend some time with each other, they see that it’s not all bad. It’s all the same, but I still love it every single time.
Xavier and Magnolia worked at the same company. They went on a retreat together years ago, and things escalate quickly (wink). However, the next morning, something happens and causes Magnolia to loathe Xavier.
Now, they have to spend 48 hours together in their bosses Hampton home. It’s pretty clear what happens, only it’s not what you expect. The author put a little bit of a different spin on it, and I really liked that. Overall, there were some parts where I was confused, but it was a refreshing rivals-to-lovers story.
