“You can lie to yourself all you want, but the chemistry between you and that cop? Freaking sizzling.” – Evil Enemy by Elle Thorpe

As much as I want to hate him, I hate myself more for how bad I want him. – Wild Irish by Brooke O’Brien


This review is for two books featured in the anthology: Evil Enemy by Elle Thorpe and Wild Irish by Brooke O’Brien.

Evil Enemy:

If you’ve read the first book in the Saint View Prison series, Locked Up Liars, then you have already been introduced to Boston, who is a cop, and Eve, who is the owner of Saint View Strip Club.

I have been waiting for their story and it does not disappoint. There is so much tension, chemistry, and suspense in this story. I DEVOURED every single page of it. Boston and Eve are two people who you’d never expect to have the sort of connection they do, but despite coming from different backgrounds they work so well together. I seriously couldn’t get enough of them.

I loved also getting some of the events from Locked Up Liars from Boston’s POV and I feel like it really added to that story line and mystery. Evil Enemy also had its own mystery and suspense that I absolutely loved and kept me on the edge of my seat. I can’t wait for the Saint View Strip Club crew, because I really need to know that is going to happen next!!

Wild Irish:

Austen and Ryder met as teens. They weren’t close and went their separate ways. Now, four years later, the end up at the same school. Austen’s new roommate just so happens to be dating Ryder’s friend…so there is no avoiding each other.

There is so much hate between the two of them, but there is also so much chemistry between them. Austen and Ryder are drawn to each other. Ryder is pretty protective when it comes to Austen, but to the hate outside world he pretends to hate her.

I absolutely loved Ryder and Austen. They knew how to push each other’s buttons. I loved their shared connection. They have life experiences that they share and adds another level to their relationship. I loved the sweet moments between them. Ryder is protective and will really do anything for Austen.

If you’re looking for a collection of enemies to lovers, bully romances this is one to check out!
