Can the best of enemies become the hottest of lovers? New York Times bestselling author Aurora Rose Reynolds proves that opposites can be compatible—and twice as combustible…
Libby Reed is over it. Or that’s what she tells herself. She’s lusted after one of New York’s bravest for years, but firefighter Antonio Moretti has doused her interest for the last time. As much as she wants the arrogant jerk (in a bad, bad way), they can’t even be in the same room without setting each other off…which might be a problem now that she’s volunteered to help out in his family’s restaurant.
Antonio’s been burned before. Now he knows better than to trust a pretty face and follow another pair of long, beautiful legs into heartbreak. But while Libby might rub him the wrong way, he can’t deny the heat between them. And it only burns hotter when she steps up in his time of need. The closer they get, the more he realizes he may have misjudged her. Then again, he doesn’t know the secret Libby’s keeping that could send their relationship up in flames before it’s even begun.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
In Tossed Into Love we get the story of the last remaining single Reed sister, and Tony, the hot firefighter/pizza maker she’s had the hots for since forever.
As with the previous books in this series, I really enjoyed the story, the banter and the chemistry… it just didn’t completely wow me. Unlike Running Into Love and Stumbling Into Love, in this instance I loved Libby much more than I liked Antonio.
Libby was a hard-working, sweet and quite serious young woman. She was stylish and a complete fashionista and worked as a makeup artist in an upscale salon. She worked very hard for all she had, but found that she wasn’t enjoying her job and line of work as much as she had in the beginning. While searching for something that would make her truly happy, she offered to help out in her favorite pizza place, where the owners (Antonio’s parents) are having some issues.
That is how she ends up having to spend time with Tony, who’s running the restaurant while his father recuperates from a health scare. While Libby’s never been too good at keeping her crush on Antonio on the down-low, Tony has pretty much been a jerk to her openly from the very first time they saw each other. And at first, that doesn’t change in their forced proximity.
Tony was hot, obviously, as he is a firefighter, but he could be sweet and funny too. Unfortunately for me, he could also be a ginormous prejudiced asshole which totally killed his hotness level like, by at least half.
When Tony let go of his preconceived notions about Libby and really started to get to know her, magic happened. Their chemistry was undeniable and they truly seemed meant to be. That is until Antonio’s stupid prejudiced ways rear its head again. As this is an ARR’s romance, everything works out in the end and everyone lives happily ever after with lots of babies.
While Tony managed to overshadow his dreaminess with his attitude, I really liked Libby, and their chemistry was really something. Tossed Into Love had the sexiness, banter, and the fluffiness I was expecting, and even though the whole series was not my favorite from Ms. Reynolds all the stories were enjoyable and fun to read.
