Gent - Harloe Rae


Raven Elliot blasts into town like a wrecking ball—striking and devastating.
With a few simple words, my reliable routine crumbles to dust.

“Is this seat taken?”

I could close my eyes and let her voice wrap around me like a lover’s caress.
But this isn’t that kind of story.
And I’m sure as hell not that kind of man.

She hovers in my space, batting her lashes and smiling shyly.
The glimmer in her sapphire eyes is a promise of peace.
But I’m not falling for it.
And Raven doesn't take the hint.

What starts as a battle of wills, explodes into a turf war. 
She stands directly in my path everywhere I turn. 
No matter how hard I shove, she won’t budge. 
Raven seems dead set on driving me insane.
But I was here first. 
And I’m not going down easy.

After all, no one ever taught me how to treat a lady.

Kamisa's Review:

I got an ARC (luckily, after I saw that cover and read that blurb I could hardly wait...) and went through it in a day. Yes, Trey and Raven were just that amazing.
What can I say? I love the misunderstood assholes, especially if they aren't as asshole-y as you'd expect them to be. Trey had a spot in my heart from the very first moment we slip into his perspective because damn, that guy is lonely... 

Raven... Raven rocks, and bakes. I mean, if I'd be a man, she'd be perfect for me. Hell, I'd date her as a woman because... dessert... pastries... Everything. ðŸ˜‰ Besides that, she's compassionate, stubborn, and inspiring. I mean, we all know the feeling of NOT knowing what you want or where you should go, and we also all know how it is to have a friend you want to follow because she makes you stronger just by being present. Well... D and Raven have that kind of friendship.

Next thing... small towns, and gossip. Jesus. I loved it because man, it was so realistic. Harloe Rae definitely has great talent, and her writing style is super realistic. I swear, I walked those streets while she was describing them, and I loved it.

What I also loved was how everything between Trey and Raven developed. Sweet, tender, like a sapling being watered and nurtured until it blossomed into something incredible.
I will admit that the end left me wanting. Not because it was unfinished, but because I found it to be so... sudden. The building of the whole relationship, Trey's issues, the sweetness that is them... I guess what I'm trying to say is I was just expecting a little more heartbreak, or rather for it to be more drawn out. Call me a masochist. ðŸ¤£ Though the ending seemed rather sudden, I won't deny the fact that I found it to be a good one. Sweet, and perfect, and... trusting, which we definitely needed.

Such a great book, quick read, and amazing enemies-to-lovers. It was my first Harloe Rae, but it definitely won't be my last. Thank you for letting me read it, lady.

(Side note: his uncle totally found someone, right? And what the hell happened to D and Zeke? Is he coming back? Do they get a second chance? Tell me, pretty please???)

Harloe added some more scenes at the end and made it more plausible, more... just more! I LOVE the extension, so my rating actually now goes up! 

Until next time!
