A Fun & Easy Enemies to Lovers Romance!
Sexy Stranger was a fun and easy enemies to lovers romance. It definitely had a Pride & Prejudice vibe, with the hero and heroine making judgments and assumptions about the other without getting to know each other first. This is a standalone romance and is told from the points of view of both the hero, Luke, and the heroine, Charlotte.
Things start off a bit rocky when Charlotte and Luke first meet. There are lots of insults and barbs thrown and though there is an immediate attraction between the two, they both try desperately to bury those feelings. As things heat up (and boy do they heat up!), they both realize that they aren't quite as different as they seem to be. Will they be able to get past their emotional baggage filled pasts and insecurities though to find a happily ever after?
I did feel that there was some unnecessary drama thanks to a lack of communication and stubbornness by our characters. I also thought the appearance of a certain character at the end felt rushed and sort of out of place. I understand why this character showed up and where Luke and Charlotte were coming from, but it just seemed silly and forced. I did really like the secondary characters in this book though, especially Luke's siblings, Duke and Molly. They were honest and loyal and added some great comic relief throughout the story. I also really liked Charlotte's best friend, Valentina. A love connection was hinted at at the end of the book, but it's unclear if any more will be written with any of these characters.
Overall, this was a light and easy romance that fans of Kendall Ryan will definitely enjoy!

I love ALL of Kendall’s books. But this one grabbed me by the poo-naney and made me its b***h. I am in love with this novella. Truly she has such a way with words, I couldn’t ever stop reading her books. In the last week, 20 books have been purchased and read. I can’t stop reading her work. Work every minute and penny!!
Loved this book... charlotte and Luke holy moly!, please tell me there's another one on its way? Maybe duke and Val's? I finished this one in a few hours and couldn't put it down....
