The Opposite of You (Opposites Attract #1) - Rachel Higginson

After a bad start to 2020 with a number of DNF's and frustration I finally struck gold! This book is about a woman , a talented chef, who's been badly burnt by her past relationship and doesn't trust easily. She is opening her own food truck. The guy is a world renowned chef working in a restaurant opposite where her food truck is parked. They both butt heads as competitors and slowly develop this beautiful friendship and love for each other. The start was a bit rocky for me. But once I got past that I loved the story! There was chemistry in spades..I had tummy flips in several places. I loved the guy. He was so kind and caring albeit in his own bossy way. The heroine wasn't your kick-ass self confident chick. She had severe self confidence issues thanks to her past, but the story shows her slowly healing and finding herself. The description about her lack of confidence and her past was a bit repetitive which soon got to be boring, which was probably the only thing I didn't like in the book. Apart from that this book was a gem I wish I'd read earlier! You know some points in life when you don't feel like you can trust any guy or you are anti-men because they are assholes? And you want to read a book to be able to relate to a heroine with that stance which shows how she slowly grows to trust and fall for that one kind soul? Ya.. definitely pick this up then.

About the book:

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.
