ARC Review: HAPPY HOUR by Piper Rayne

Happy Hour by Piper Rayne
The perfect man for her is the one she hates most. #gofigure

Dating is hard.
Dating in your thirties is even harder.
Dating in Chicago is harder still.

I haven't given up on finding my happily-ever-after, but in the age of swiping right and Netflix and chill, I'm wondering if everything is as temporary as my marriage turned out to be.

Truth is, there is one guy I can't get my mind off of.

Roarke Baldwin has salt and pepper hair I've dreamed of running my hands through and I'm pretty sure that if I checked he really does have a six pack of abs underneath his suit. And I've always wondered what that stubble on his face would feel like between my thighs.

The problem? He's the one man I hate more than my ex-husband…

His divorce attorney.

Hannah and Roarke are two people who shouldn’t mix, but their attraction to each other just won’t die. She’s virtually sworn off another committed relationship. After her ex-husband cheated on her, destroying her self-worth and self-confidence, not to mention fleecing her for half of everything she owned, she wasn’t jumping at the bit to land herself in pain again. She definitely didn’t think Roarke should be the one she tested the waters with. He was not only more man than she was used to, but he was the attorney who helped her ex get everything he didn’t deserve. How can she lust so bad over someone she hates so much?

It was very easy to see things from Hannah’s perspective and not just because the story was told from her point of view. On top of the betrayals she suffered from the man she was supposed to spend her life with, Roarke was the guy who helped him keep on taking from her. But I didn’t like how she treated him. It was obvious from the start that who she imagined Roarke to be wasn’t the man he was. And yet she continued to give him a hard time. I found it hard to like her. She was rude, judgmental and condescending. To everyone it seemed. I was willing to suck a nut to get Roarke’s POV. Because of how difficult I found Hannah’s character to be, getting his perspective would have made this story a hell of a lot more palatable.

Overall, this was a story to enjoy and savor. I loved how witty these characters were. Their banter was something to look forward to as I progressed through each chapter. This story was about opposites falling in love. Period.

Happy Reading! xo
