Libby Reed is over it. Or that’s what she tells herself. She’s lusted after one of New York’s bravest for years, but firefighter Antonio Moretti has doused her interest for the last time. As much as she wants the arrogant jerk (in a bad, bad way), they can’t even be in the same room without setting each other off…which might be a problem now that she’s volunteered to help out in his family’s restaurant.
Antonio’s been burned before. Now he knows better than to trust a pretty face and follow another pair of long, beautiful legs into heartbreak. But while Libby might rub him the wrong way, he can’t deny the heat between them. And it only burns hotter when she steps up in his time of need. The closer they get, the more he realizes he may have misjudged her. Then again, he doesn’t know the secret Libby’s keeping that could send their relationship up in flames before it’s even begun.

“Whether you run into it, stumble into it, or get tossed into it, love has a way of finding you.”
This was the last installment of this series and it was cute! I love enemies to lovers and was looking forward to this story when we were introduced to Libby and Antonio in Stumbling into love, the Mack I love enemies to lovers!
Libby and Antonio were one of those couples where you just want them to open their eyes and see what’s in front of them. It was a fun ride reading about them coming into their feelings for one another.
There were a couple of things that kept me from loving it completely. First was that the writing was overly descriptive. Such as descriptions of her outfits down to what everyone looks like. I get that a little description is needed to for the reader to paint a picture in their mind but I couldn’t fully be in the story because of the info dumps. Also, it was quite predictable. I knew how the story was going to go in the first few chapters.
Now on to some happy gushing! As usual, ARR can write an overprotective alpha like nobody else and she did it again with Antonio. I loved seeing him get jealous and growly about Libby. My favorite part of the book had to be the chapters of what happens years later. Longer epilogues always put a smile on my face!
Overall, while I didn’t love it completely, this was a cute read and perfect for summer!
