The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson Review


5 Smooches!

I’ve sworn off men.

All men.

Famous last words, right? You’re expecting some epic tale of reluctant love and my dramatic change of heart? Well, you’re not going to get it.

I’m stubborn. And headstrong. And I’ve just survived the worst three years of my life. After escaping an abusive boyfriend to live in hostels and cheap hotels while I worked my way across Europe, I’ve come to two conclusions.

The first? Now that I’m back home, I’m going to squander my expensive culinary degree on a food truck that caters to the late night drunk crowd.

The second? I’m going to prove to the bastard across the plaza that my street food is better than his fussy five course monstrosities.

Killian Quinn might be Food and Wine’s Chef to Watch Out For. He might have a Michelin Star. He might have every food critic in the city wrapped around his too-large fingers. But he’s also pretentious and unbearably arrogant and the very opposite of me.

So he can keep his unsolicited advice and his late night visits and his cocky smiles. I want none of it. Or him.

I want the opposite.



Okay, when I saw this cover, I was like I gotta read the blurb.  And when I read the blurb, I was all I gotta get this book.  And now that I’ve read the book I’m sad it’s over.  Because this one is probably my most favorite from this author.  Everything about this book spoke to me, even the a-hole hero.  Because he was a big time a-hole, but still somehow the author made me love him.

I admit that in the beginning of this book I felt like things were a little slow because of a quite a bit of setup, but once the ball got rolling, I couldn’t stop.  i didn’t want to do anything but read this one.  The characters were awesome, even the side characters held my attention and I cannot wait for their stories.  The dry wit type humor that was through out this book made my daggum day!   I was totally IN this story.  It had plenty of sexual tension and angst.  Rachel Higginson hit this one out of the park.  Cover, blurb, book!  All of it is amazing!
