Plot Summary

Gorgeous, cocky, and fast on his way to becoming a hotshot doctor, Josh Chen has never met a woman he couldn’t charm—except for Jules f**king Ambrose.

The beautiful redhead has been a thorn in his side since they met, but she also consumes his thoughts in a way no woman ever has.

When their animosity explodes into one unforgettable night, he proposes a solution that’ll get her out of his system once and for all: an enemies with benefits arrangement with simple rules.

No jealousy.

No strings attached.

And absolutely no falling in love.


Outgoing and ambitious, Jules Ambrose is a former party girl who’s focused on one thing: passing the attorney’s bar exam.

The last thing she needs is to get involved with a doctor who puts the SUFFER in insufferable…no matter how good-looking he is.

But the more she gets to know him, the more she realizes there’s more than meets the eye to the man she’s hated for so long.

Her best friend’s brother.

Her nemesis.

And her only salvation.

Theirs is a match made in hell, and when the demons from their past catch up with them, they’re faced with truths that could either save them …or destroy everything they’ve worked for.

My Review

Josh and Jules can’t stand each other (or so they say). They’re always bickering and calling each other out. When they first met, Jules overheard Josh talking about her with his sister and they weren’t nice things to hear. Since then, she’s been holding a grudge. 

Josh thinks Jules is too wild to hang out with his beloved sister. Wherever she goes, there’s trouble and he doesn’t want Ava involved in any of that.

The thing is, despite the hate for each other, along the years something else has been quietly growing, a sexual tension between them.

Since they’re clearly enemies, they don’t see harm in relieving the sexual tension and decide to be ‘enemies with benefits’ in secret.

I loved their interactions and relationships. Jules is a very strong character that puts Josh in his place and brings him to his knees. She’s strong-willed and passionate, not caring what anyone thinks about how she lives her life. She’s my favourite female character of this series.

The development of their relationship was very very slow. A real slow-burn which was a bit frustrating to read sometimes. The author included a trip that made no sense at all for me because it didn’t contribute one bit to the story. 

It was very entertaining to see Josh falling first, seeing the development in his emotions.

So far these series didn’t disappoint. What a wild ride the previous books were. Despite not being as good as the previous two, I enjoyed this story.

Tropes you can expect

  • Enemies to lovers
  • Enemies with benefits
  • Best friend’s brother/ Sister’s best friend


“Hell with you sounds like heaven to me.”

“Go. To. Hell,” I panted. It was the only sentence I could manage before another sharp thrust scrambled my thoughts.
His dark chuckle reverberated through me. “You’re my personal hell, Red.” He gave my hair another sharp tug. “And God help me, I don’t want to fucking leave.”

“You know, you’re the first guy I’ve been with in my room.”
“First and last, Red.”
“Possessive much?”
“Damn right I am. I don’t like sharing.”
“Sharing is a virtue, Josh.”
“I don’t give a flying fuck. I don’t share. Not when it comes to you.”

“No falling in love.”
I scoffed. “Red, you’ll fall in love with me before I ever fall in love with you.” The mere idea was absurd.
Jules was the most difficult woman I’d ever encountered. God help whichever poor bastard ended up falling for her.”

“This is a work event, so apologize, walk away, and we’ll leave it at that. But disrespect Jules again, and I’ll put you in the emergency room myself.”
