Their wishes were simple and modest. Fate had other things in store though, and she can be a real bitch sometimes.
- All he wanted was to get the job done and somehow to endure those long months playing nanny to a spoiled little rich girl. Without strangling her with his bare hands in the process. Well, it is going to be much easier said than done.
- All she wanted was to escape the past and live like any other nineteen-year-old girl. Her plan definitely didn’t include the arrogant, tattooed savage, with his awful mohawk hair and lack of social graces, whose only mission was to stick real close and mess up her life.
But, people aren't always what they seem to be, are they?
I received a copy of Perfect Opposite in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed this one. When I hear bad boy, tattooed, and mafia..Im all in....how about you?
The story opens introducing us to a mystery man. I couldnt figure out where the prologue fit in, until almost the very end. And I love that!!!
Sasha is trying hard to get away from the life she grew up with. Desperately trying to carve her own future, away from her father's shady dealings, she has grown bitter and cynical. Now, I must admit, it took me a while to warm up to her. She comes off as a total spoiled brat, one that literally pitches a fit when things do not go her way. But as the story progressed, and you learn more of the things she had to contend with growing up, things she has lived through and endured, you begin to have a better understanding as to why she behaves the way she does.
Alex, OMGoodness--->can we say YUM!!! I LOVED him. He is broody, and secretive. He is tattooed head to toe and built like a mac truck. His face remains expressionless, and you are constantly left wondering what is going on inside his head. But at the same time, you want to attach yourself to him and never let go. He is a total jerk, comes off cold and distant. The kind of guy you want to get inside his head and learn all his secrets, and the things that make him tick.
Alex is one of Sasha's father's top men. One of his most trusted foot soldiers, so when a competitor threatens to have her killed in move of retaliation against her father, Alex is sent to play body guard and watch out for Sasha. The problem is, no one in Sasha's new life know who Sasha really is. No one knows who her father, the criminal mastermind, is or how she grew up. So how is she supposed to explain the sudden appearance of a tattooed hot guy constantly following her around?? The solution?? Move him into the spare bedroom of her apartment, and say he is a distant relative in need of a place to stay.
As Sasha tries to navigate life with a constant shadow, she finds herself drawn to the mysterious Alex, as she is fighting so hard to stay away. When the unthinkable happens, Sasha is forced into hiding with Alex. As time wears on, the constant pull she feels towards him becomes harder to resist. And as Sasha finds her resolve weakening, Alex continues to fight against the feelings he has come to have towards Sasha. Will these two ever get on the same page??
As Sasha and Alex finally begin to work towards building a relationship, secrets are spilled, and missing puzzle pieces begin to fall into place. But when Alex's deepest darkest secret is finally revealed, will Sasha be able to move past it? Or will the love that fate has brought together fall apart before it ever has a chance grow solid??
Sasha and Alex'x story is full of twists and turns, and a lot of the unexpected. I love when a book keeps me on my toes, and Perfect Opposite delivered.
