This summer was supposed to be spent lounging on the beach, madly in love with my boyfriend.
Until he decided to move to Singapore, and break up with me an hour before his plane left.
Now I’m stuck in a Hamptons house share with six of his closest pals, including his best friend … who despises me.

Since the moment Smith Redfield laid eyes on me, he’s hated my guts. I’m serious, I think the raven-haired restaurateur gets physically sick just being in my presence. And he’s never been shy about hiding that fact.

There was the time he cackled when I landed face first in a pile of Manhattan trash bags. Or the night I tried to throw my ex-boyfriend a surprise party, and Smith had strippers crash the bash. Or maybe it was New Year’s Eve, when he got in my face and called me a sheltered goody two-shoes who wouldn’t know passion if it smacked me in the lips.

He’s rooming right next door for the summer months, and I don’t think more animosity could exist than in the hallway of our vacation rental. As if I wasn’t already sporting a bruised ego and broken heart from the way his best friend left me.

But the more midnight run-ins we have, the more I can’t help but think about the way his mouth would feel against mine. With each heavy-eyed glance over the dinner table, I’m starting to wonder if the damaged alpha male doesn’t harbor more than just loathing towards me.

After all, they say hate is the closest emotion to love.
And with the way we’re skating that thin line, it’s bound to burn this whole house down.

Love at First Fight is enemies-to-lovers standalone Romance about Molly and Smith.

I’m always excited to start a new Carrie Aarons book and Love at First Fight was the perfect book to read! I have been in somewhat of a reading slump, I haven’t been reading that much, but Love at First Fight changed everything. Love at First Fight was such a fast-paced and well-written read, it was so hard to put this book down. I enjoyed reading this book and discovering more about Molly and Smith!

I really love Molly, she’s such a kind person and she gives so much to children in need. I think she’s such a loving character and I’d definitely be friends with her. When I first read about Smith, I knew that I was going to fall for him. I immediately knew that his mean behaviour towards Molly was an act and that he really loved her, but I didn’t mind. I loved how they grew towards each other and I really loved reading about them.

Love at First Fight was such a good Romance read and I didn’t expect anything else from Carrie Aarons. She’s such an amazing author and I loved every book I’ve read by her. I’m glad that I read this book during my reading slump because I think it’s finally over! I really recommend reading Love at First Fight if you’re looking for an addictive and quick enemies-to-lovers read!
