Book Review - It Had to be You by Melissa Kate

ABOUT THE BOOK


Emma Wyatt has had enough of her ex-best friend and his ladykiller ways. The sweet boy from her youth had been replaced with a serial womaniser.
Oliver didn't intend to be coupled with Emma, but when it came to Emma Wyatt, he felt the need to be a knight in shining armor.
Now, the whole town knows and Emma is livid. She wants to wring his neck.
A heated argument incites a fiery moment of passion, and the pair find themselves fighting an unlikely attraction they never saw coming.
But a dreadful secret could tear them apart forever.

REVIEW

This is a refreshing romantic comedy.  The story seems like a simple hate turns to love story, but there are additional complicated layers in the story and the characters that make the entire book feel more substantial yet still a quick and easy read.  Emma and Ollie are strong characters and what I love about Ollie is that he is a strong alpha male without being dominating.  The dynamic between the two feels real and helps the overall flow of the book.  I look forward to reading more from the author.


OVERALL RATING - 4.5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy

ABOUT THE AUTHOR


Melissa Kate is a self confessed book-a-holic who lives in a small town along the coast in sunny South Africa. She writes contemporary romance with quirky characters and witty banter; a true romantic at heart, she loves the moment of falling in love. Her pet Beagle and maniacal lovebird keep her company while writing and often inspire senseless moments in her stories. When she’s not furiously tapping away on her laptop, Melissa can be found laughing away with her husband (who happens to be her pre-school sweetheart... you just know there's a story there) or scouring online stores for additions to her ever growing stiletto collection (ehm addiction). She balances her day job and conjuring up new romantic tales with a local personal blog with arb ramblings about her life in Durban.
