You better watch out for people that bounce back from everything that’s meant to destroy them.
Those were the words that Coreline King learned to live by when it came to dealing with Tide ‘Rook’ Crow, member of the Battle Crows MC, general surgeon, and all-around jerk who lived to make her life a living hell.
It all started in high school when he stopped seeing her as a random girl and started to see her as his rival.
Together, they became ‘frenemies.’ I.e.—a person with whom one is friendly, despite a fundamental dislike or rivalry.
At least, it started out like that.
Everyone always says there’s a fine line between love and hate. And at first, Tide and Coreline don’t realize how very true that is.
Not until Tide gets hurt defending Coreline’s honor, and Coreline has to fix him because she feels like she owes him.
But one night of bad choices leads to a very big ‘oops’ that will either haunt them for the next eighteen years or bring them together as tight as they ever could be.
Loved these characters!
Loved these characters! Tide and Coraline have been in competition pretty much their whole lives, and it continued into adulthood. After they both returned to their hometown from years in the big city, they roll their eyes even more after finding out they’re neighbors. Nothing has changed between them – they’ve always kept up with each other and poked fun at each other while also keeping interest in the other’s lives. Everything changes for them though when Coraline is assaulted by a biker in town, and it flips a switch in Tide that while they are still competitors in the truest form, he has this innate attraction to protecting her, because nobody can make fun of her or hurt her except him. This was the best storyline where LLV was able to take the age-old tale from our parents that when boys bully it means they have a crush on you, and took it to the extreme with these two. I can’t wait to see what comes next – these brothers are quickly becoming my favorite family/MC!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Lani Lynn Vale is by far my favorite author. Just like all the other books she’s written…..I couldn’t put this one down. I can’t wait until the next in the series is released.
Enemy to lovers
Not A Role Model is one of those stories that has you enchanted by the characters and their storyline waring, though there are some triggers bullying and assault being two I can name of the top of my head. Omg Tide and Coreline were amazing, I found my new favorite book, these two together is simply just chef kiss. The banter between these two is so entertaining you just can't put the book down for anything, I laughed out loud a few times. I love that Coreline was such a strong woman. She did not need Tide to make her that way, she just was. Tide is a jerk but loves with his whole heart. A true enemies to lovers story, Can't wait for the rest of the MC books to come out. Lani did it again!
