⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sexy, fun holiday romance

Light and funny with plenty of steam, this book moves quickly and will keep you smiling. It’s an “enemies” to lovers romance where our couple butts heads until the tension between them snaps. And while Syler may have been something of a bad boy in the past, all we see is what a great guy he truly is deep down. While I felt the romance lacked some depth and cringed at the circumstances surrounding the night that changed things between Syler and Katrina, there’s a whole lot that I enjoyed about the book.

The story follows Syler, a 28-year-old who returns to his hometown in time for the holidays when he finds out that his sister is in need. Though he’s definitely been a troublemaker in the past, Syler would do anything for his family and knows it’s time for him to step up. Unbeknownst to Syler, his sister’s best friend also comes to help out, and the strained relationship between them comes to a head. Growing up, Katrina always had a crush on Syler’s brother, until one night changed things forever. These two might clash every time they speak, but beneath that is an chemistry neither one can ignore. 

The writing is solid and moves quickly, not lingering on anything that drags the story down. It’s got an overall light feel with an undercurrent of sex throughout the whole thing. Neither Syler nor Katrina has been able to forget the night they shared, and living together doesn’t make that any easier. Personally, I connected with Syler more than I did Katrina – he was young when he made his mistakes, and is being judged on his past behavior. I will say that I didn’t love how “that night” played out, which colored my opinion of the characters, especially Katrina. Ultimately, however, I loved the humor and lightness of the story, which made it a quick and easy read. I received an ARC via Give Me Books and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Maybe there’s one of us in every family.  
The guy who scorns all the rules.  
The guy who shuns expectations.  
The guy most commonly known as the ultimate villain in a
cultish self help movement.
On the other hand, perhaps we’re not as common as I
thought.  
But so what if I’m never anyone’s hero? 
At least I’m a good brother. That is the one thing I manage
to get right.  So when my big sister is abandoned by her prick of a
husband, leaving her and her four kids alone a week before Christmas, I don’t
hesitate to head home.  
To my surprise, I’m not the only one who shows
up.  
Katrina has always been my sister’s best
friend.  She’s headstrong and hot. She’s neurotic and
sexy.  She belts out old power ballads with horrible, tuneless
abandon and her hair always smells like vanilla cookie batter. 
We have a long history of being at odds and she’s never
appreciated my natural talent for getting under her skin.  
And then there was the time when we accidentally got naked
together…
There might have been some post-wedding horniness
involved.  
Combined with antique furniture abuse.  
Along with a creative application of lemon
buttercream. 
It’s kind of a forbidden topic.  
Now, nearly a decade later, it’s possible I’m still using
that memory to get off once or twice or twelve times a
month.     
Katrina never knew that back in the day she was the one girl
who really got to me.  
In the spirit of the holidays I’ve decided it’s time to
settle the score.   
She already thinks I’m not one of the good guys.  
She also realizes I’ve got something she wants for
Christmas.  
All she has to do is swallow her high maintenance pride and
ask nicely.  
I can guarantee she’ll get more than she ever bargained
for…  
  
*SYLER MCKNIGHT is a complete stand alone with:
·       Small town
quirkiness
·       Enemies to Lovers
(with majorly hot hate sex)
·       A sarcastic
flannel-shirt-wearing anti-hero
