Book Review: Opposites a special giveaway

By Sara Steven

Single mom Vivian has been burned by love once before, and her job as a divorce lawyer has presented enough evidence to convince her there are no good men left in New York City.

The worst offender is her new neighbor: Dr. Lucas Keller, a couple’s therapist whose piercing blue eyes and flawless dark hair are just as annoying as his bad temper.

But when Luke starts poaching Vivian’s clients by saving their marriages, she makes it her mission to force him out of the building to save her practice. But it’s Luke who gives her the perfect opportunity when he proposes an unexpected bet.

With their offices at stake, Vivian and Luke play the field of love in a fierce battle of wits that quickly turns hot and personal, especially when Vivian’s daughter gets involved. Now, taking down Luke has become more than business for Vivian. It’s become a pleasure—and soon, Vivian and Luke will realize how pointless it is to fight the laws of attraction.

I really enjoyed the back and forth banter between Vivian and Luke. It seemed like it was going to be a disaster right from the start, when the two of them are forced to play nice as office neighbors, and the battle of wits felt like an epic game that I never wanted to end! 

Vivian, as mentioned in the synopsis, has her ideas on men and relationships. It’s what has lended into her job as a divorce lawyer. Yet, beneath the gruff and tough exterior lurks a hopeless romantic who thinks romance is meant for everyone else, but not for her. On the flip side is Luke, a glass half full kind of guy who works on repairing marriages as a couple’s therapist, but for him, he’s become a bit cynical due to his own past baggage regarding personal relationships. It was fun to witness what they both present to the outside world, yet through their own points of view, we get to delve deeper into what has ultimately made both characters steer clear of relationships. 

The bet the two of them takes on goes against everything they stand for, only raising the stakes of the story. The various scenarios both Vivian and Luke go through in order to “win” was so entertaining and fun to read. There were moments involving Vivian’s daughter that brought on some teary-eyed moments for me, too, which really helped to balance out the battle going on for Vivian and Luke and made the plot and everything within it feel well-rounded and real. Even though they’re working to fight the laws of attraction, the question is, what happens next? What goes beyond that? And ultimately, can there be a happily-ever-after?

The fast-paced witty romantic disasterly mayhem behind Opposites Attract kept me going, from page one until I was done, and if I could give this battle of wits six stars, I really would!
