Anybody But Him

ANYBODY BUT HIM                                   CLAIRE BAXTER

A deliciously funny rom com from Random Romance. What happens when you fall in love with the man you hate?Nicola Doyle’s dating record is a disaster, and it doesn’t improve when she returns to Redgum Valley, after an absence of twelve years, to look after her increasingly eccentric parents. There, she’s thrown into regular contact with Blair Morrissey – the very reason she couldn’t wait to leave town in the first place. The decade-old scars are still raw from that humiliating day in high school – when Blair went from the boy she loved to the boy she hated.Except Blair doesn’t seem to be a ‘bad boy’ any more – in fact, he’s charming, infuriatingly helpful and extremely attractive. If only Nicola could forgive and forget . . .



MY REVIEW: 
What can I say? Who in their lifetime, as a young adult, can say they have never been made to feel like Nicola (or like Blair Morrissey liked to call her Nicki Doyle)? If they tell you they haven't I would say they are lying. Nicki grew up in a small town with a best friend who always had her back, which she really needed. You see Nicki came from a very eccentric family or at least her mom and dad were. Her and her sister were the laughing stock of the town or so she thought or some made her feel that way. Then on top of that you add that she was dyslexic and having a no self-esteem and a crush on a guy that when he found out she wrote poetry about him brushed off as if she was a speck at the bottom of her shoe she was crushed now to be back home to care for her parents for three months to give her sister a rest. When said crush Blair appears before her eyes. Mr. Toads Wild Ride has nothing on these two that is for sure. It does have the HEA but to me it felt a little to rush in the relationship after the reveal of his past. There were no real feelings. Talked about on either side then boom. I like it though and would recommend it.
