There’s a fine line between lust and hate.
I don’t care that Drew Merritt spent the last year transforming himself from grungy slob to sexy playboy. With messy, dirty blond hair and gorgeous eyes, his looks aren’t the problem.
His mouth is.
And the stupid things that come out of it.
But after an emergency strands us together, and he does his damnedest to take care of me…
Let’s just say there’s one thing we don’t clash on.
And it doesn’t involve talking.
I’ve despised Drew since I met him years ago. One weekend can’t change us that much, can it?
Spoiler alert: It doesn’t.
Except he left me a little keepsake.
And in nine months, I’ll have a surprise for Portland’s most notorious player.
Lex writes contemporary romance, the sexy kind with lotsa angst, a whole lotta kissing, and the hot happily ever afters. When she’s not writing, she lives a parallel life as an English teacher.
She loves printing black and white photos, listening to music on vinyl, and getting lost in a great book. Bitten by wanderlust, she’s lived all over the country but currently resides in the City of Angels with her husband and twin daughters.
Lex is represented by Kimberly Brower of Brower Literary & Management.
Leslie McAdam is a California girl who loves romance, Little Dude, and well-defined abs. She lives in a drafty old farmhouse on a small orange tree farm in Southern California with her husband and two small children. Leslie always encourages her kids to be themselves – even if it means letting her daughter wear leopard print from head to toe. An avirectreader from a young age, she will always trade watching TV for reading a book, unless it’s Top Gear. Or football. Leslie is employed by day but spends her nights writing about the men you fantasize about. She’s unapologetically sarcastic and notoriously terrible at comma placement.
Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she’s not in the writing cave you’ll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.

I was given a copy of this book for review and gah am I in love with these two. I hadn’t read the previous book, so I didn’t know how the other two came to be, but I loved reading about Kendall and Drew. I have said this before but I will say it again, I am a big sucker when it comes to hate-to-love stories, and this one wasn’t an exception. It took me a while to finish, which had nothing to do with the book, but more to do with the fact that I was not around too much to read.
Kendall and Drew have met a few years before through their best friends and while they have never really hit it off, when they get stranded in a mountain cabin together, they get talking and of course things start happening.
Lex and Leslie have written this book perfectly, with enough banter and fights and other drama.
Kendall was a sassy AF woman that I would love to be one day, maybe minus the pregnancy part.
Drew was a man to my heart, one who had a past that he didn’t like to be reminded off too much but with a love for his woman that I would love to feel.
Thank you so much for letting me read this book, I can’t wait to find out what else is on the horizon from either author!
