"A classic start really. Powerful business guy (Iain) wants to force young woman (Kirstine) to move her small business away. They meet, are aware that they are enemies, but are very much physically attracted to one another.
But he doesn’t like coffee. Can you imagine? Enter Kirsty with her coffee making skills, to try and convert him into a lover of ‘a hug in a mug’ ;)
The main character is Iain. Kirsty is secondary; her POV is too matter-of-fact, I never felt as if I really got to know her. Nothing about her personal life, not enough feelings. At least, I didn’t FEEL it, it didn’t reach me. She stayed distant, aloof, from afar…
And… I didn’t like Iain. It started when he said people who read books are geeks. Hey! That’s offensive! And he’s clearly playing a mind game with Kirsty. And he’s soooo overly arrogant! The kind of guy who wants things his way no matter the cost to others. All of that made him unlikeable. Well, what do you expect from a guy who didn’t like coffee (wink wink)."
