Wingman rule number two: never reveal how much you want them.

Lex hates Gabi. Gabi hates Lex. But, hey, at least the hate is mutual, right? All Lex has to do is survive the next few weeks training Gabi in all the ways of Wingmen Inc. and then he can be done with her. But now that they have to work together, the sexual tension and fighting is off the charts. He isn’t sure if he wants to strangle her or throw her against the nearest sturdy table and have his way with her.

But Gabi has a secret, something she’s keeping from not just her best friend but her nemesis too. Lines are blurred as Lex becomes less the villain she’s always painted him to be…and starts turning into something more. Gabi has always hated the way she’s been just a little bit attracted to him—no computer-science major should have that nice of a body or look that good in glasses—but “Lex Luthor” is an evil womanizer. He’s dangerous. Gabi should stay far, far away.

Then again, she’s always wanted a little danger.

Maria’s Review

➦I will keep this nice and short. Really enjoyed this second installment of the series. This one’s about Lex – a computer genius with a body of an athlete – who is a co-owner of Wingmen Inc. You know, the company that lets the ladies hire a hot stud to make their desired male jealous.

➦Wingman Inc. now hires Gabi to accommodate the male population. Gabi is off-limits to Lex because she is his best friend’s best friend. Get it? But she’s like a sister to him so I guess it would be one of those forbidden “my best friend’s sister” romances. Always fun!

➦Lex did get a taste of Gabi 4 years before she got hired by Wingman Inc. and he liked it. Oh he liked it a lot. But he was warned by his best friend to stay far far away. Now he goes around pretending to hate her, teasing her and fighting with her at any opportunity. So how long can he keep up the charade?

➦All right, so obviously there’s an enemies to lovers trope here. These two engage in arguing and bickering non-stop and it’s the greatest from of foreplay to them lol The sexual tension was nicely done, I was a really happy camper reading this one.

➦The humor was great just as in the first book. I happened to like the first book better just because it gave me more feels. Anywhoooo, if you like romantic comedies with enemies to lovers trope I think you might enjoy this one. 🙂
