My 4 Stars Review
Kimberley Dawson, aka the Ice Queen, and Owen Whitfield have absolutely nothing in common. In Kimberley’s opinion, nothing is more infuriating than an arrogant dumb jock, walking around school like he owns the place. So, she can’t understand the reason why the entire school seems to believe she hooked up with Owen. In reality, they are best enemies and things get complicated when they are forced to cooperate on an English assignment.
Despite her prejudice, Kimberley has to admit that Owen is rather smart and funny. He is even ready to help her play Nancy Drew and prove that a student has been wrongly accused of a theft, due to a setup. Owen and Kimberley are the best partners in crime, or rather partners to expose the criminals.
I loved their funny banter. They have great chemistry, even if both are fighting the attraction they feel for each other. But when Owen won’t hesitate to risk his life for Kimberley, she will finally accept to live in the moment and embrace her feelings for him.
This high school romance novella, told in dual POV, was a very pleasant and suspenseful read that kept me interested from beginning to end. My only complaint is that it was too short, I wanted to know more about the characters and their “Happily Ever After” ! But I’m sure they will appear in Ms. Soars’ future books in this series.
