We watched Chloe and A.J. exhibit their hatred for each other in the first Bad Habit novel, Sweet as Sin, so knowing this was an enemies to lovers trope (not my favorite) I had been putting off reading this book. It started off very quickly and I was soon immersed in A. J. and Chloe’s gritty love story. This was not a sweet book-it was however, a sexy book. But the word that better describes it is gritty. It was also honest, had my stomach churning and my heart breaking. For me, not an easy book to read. I prefer sweet, funny romances and, this one had to go through a lot of dark to get to the sweet. That darkness actually made their journey that much more special, because when they finally entered the light it was that much brighter.
A. J.’s back story was pretty awful, and when he finally opens up to Chloe about it she just takes it all in, no judgement. She just loves him and hopes that love will help him heal. His nickname for her was Angel, and that was how I thought of her too, because I f that had been me, I would’ve gone screaming into the night, gotten fake paperwork and disappeared from his life forever. Yep, his story was that dark, and Chloe didn’t even flinch. I’m not sure that was entirely realistic, but it made for a great story, and I read through the night to see it through to the end. ❤❤❤❤
