“This book was slow burn perfection. ”
~ Under the Covers

I’m a sucker for a good foodie romance and if Rachel Higginson is writing it, then I’m reading it.  THE OPPOSITE OF YOU starts out as an enemies to lovers trope when our heroine, Vera, opens up a food truck in the parking lot across one of the town’s best known restaurants and the kitchen of world renowned Killian Quinn.  Seems simple but there’s so much underneath it all that makes this a rich and addictive read.  Once I started, I couldn’t put this down.

I’m not usually the biggest fan of slow burn romances, but Ms. Higginson does it so well.  This book was slow burn perfection.  The sexual tension is sizzling even when critiquing food, the chemistry is off the charts!  And between all that there’s so many layers of emotions to dig through for our characters.  Vera has been through a lot in her life and she’s trying to get back on her feet after life knocked her down.  A food truck was not necessarily her life’s dream but it’s the first baby step to regaining control and doing what she loves the most… cooking.

I loved both characters from the first page.  Killian is deliciously cocky and pushy and Vera is down to earth and the girl you want to be friends with and see her succeed.  Seeing how Killian would push her to be a better version of herself, either when she felt he was attacking her or supporting her, was one of my favorite things about him.  Of course, it helps he’s sexy as hell, has a broody attitude and can cook some delicious food.  He’s pretty much the perfect man.  But these two complemented each other so well, they were steaming the pages even with plain banter.  I just had to get more.

THE OPPOSITE OF YOU is such a well rounded story.  Emotion, chemistry, romance, family.  I loved every second of it and I can’t wait for the next story in this series.

About Rachel Higginson

I was born and raised in Nebraska, but spent my college years traveling the world. I fell in love with Eastern Europe, Paris, Indian Food and the beautiful beaches of Sri Lanka. But I came back home to marry my high school sweetheart and now I spend my days raising our growing family. In those few spare moments I have, I am either reading or writing Young Adult Fiction, because I am obsessed with it.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
