Synopsis from Goodreads
Delilah Northcutt has been described as weird, nerdy. But her favorite term is quirky. The eccentric flower shop owner definitely marches to the beat of her own drum. On the rebound from a cheating ex, she’s not looking to open her heart to someone else any time soon. On a whim, her best friend convinces her that one night with a stranger she’ll never see again is just what she needs to pull herself out of the funk she’s been living in.
Overly serious, workaholic Richard Locklaine was always described as the twin determined to do the right thing. Even if it was at the cost of his own well-being. But after years in a loveless, manipulative marriage, he’s finally free and ready to build a life of his choosing. And nowhere in that life is there room for another woman—unless it’s for just one night, of course.
They are complete opposites in every single way. But for some reason, fate has decided to force the two of them together. Despite the chemistry, they’re determined to fight the attraction growing between them. Besides, what could a florist with horrible taste in music and an attorney from Connecticut ever really have in common? Only one thing is certain. When they finally come together, it’s going to be epic.
***This is Book 2 in the Locklaine Boys series, a spin-off of Love Hate relationship. They are interconnected standalones.***
Opposites Attract has such fun quirky characters, I absolutely adored them, especially Delilah ?
At her best friends encouragement to erase the memory of her cheating ex, Delilah embarks on a hot and steamy night with a stranger. Except fate has other plans in store for her; unable to forget the incredible night she spent with a stranger, Delilah is more than a little shocked when said stranger walks into her flower shop to collect the flowers for a wedding. Unfortunately, making the assumption the man of her fantasies is nothing more than a cheating scumbag like her ex.
Richard hasn’t been able to wipe the memory of Delilah from his imagination, neither has he been able to connect with anyone else since his night with her. Subconsciously he knows there is something special between them, unfortunately, his horrible former relationship has completely clouded his perception. Stunned to find Delilah is not only the florist for his twin brother’s wedding but also his new next door neighbor. You really can’t escape fate. Richard unleashes his inner alpha, claiming Delilah in what he considers a friends with benefits scenario; yet his actions speak louder than his thoughts will allow him to admit.
The peripheral characters are something else and I loved how they all blended together to help and support each other, folding Delilah and her best friend, Devon, into their group.
There are a lot of references to previous incidents that have shaped both Richard and his twin, Rowan, but without the in-depth detail. I couldn’t help but wonder what had happened and coming up with the worse possible scenario. I really, really want to know more. As I haven’t read the first book in the series, I am wondering if the details are in there???? It is now added to my wish-list.
Opposites Attract is a fun fast paced romance with plenty of heat and amazing banter ?????
I cannot wait to see what is in store for Devon xxx
