But a heated argument leads to a fiery moment of passion and suddenly the two are fighting an unlikely attraction that neither saw coming. But Oliver has a secret that could tear them apart…

I was provided with an ARC in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts about this book are from my own head and heart 🙂

A charming novel filled with witty banter and a fantastic, childhood friends to lovers story. I am a huge fan of snarky heroine’s that can both dish it out and take it when it comes right back. I loved the premise of the story and the slow burn of Emma and Oliver’s love story. I enjoyed the slight adrenaline rush of Oliver’s work in the city; it kept the novel from being just way too sweet. I also thoroughly enjoyed the geriatric squad and the other supporting characters. I hope to see more novels in this series, I’d especially love to see Carla get her own HEA.
