Publisher's Summary

What do the hot, genius entrepreneur and I have in common?

Absolutely nothing.

Taika Parata may be rich as hell, but he’s a total jerk. He spends his days traveling the globe in the lap of luxury while I dreamed of leaving my tiny hometown for a nomadic life and never got further than Boston.

But when fate throws us together, our preconceptions are challenged and suddenly we both have an entirely new perception of the world…and each other.

Note: This is a 12K short story that was first available as part of volume 2 of the Heart2Heart charity anthology. No content has been changed or added. It has ties to the O'Leary universe, but can easily be listened to as a stand-alone.

Opposites attract.

3.5*

Sweet little opposites attract/enemies to lovers short story. Part of the Love in O'Leary series but can be definitely read as a standalone.
This was originally in one of the H2H anthologies, but I came to those late so this was new to me.
Ethan was a sweetie and Taika grew on me, after awhile- he was a bit of a snob at the very beginning. I liked how Ethan make him rethink things.
Would make for a cute Hallmarkesque movie.

The narration was fine.

Lovely book

At first listen, the progression seemed too quick, but a second run had me appreciating the little things I'd overlooked. It's a lovely short story and I'm glad the writing was decently paced, allowing the romance to build.
