New Jerk in Town (Carolina Kisses, #2)New Jerk in Town by Sylvie Stewart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I loved the idea of this book. Two people going at each other like oil and water! I loved their quick witty banter and well actually all interactions. They have an amazing first kiss! What really got me though was that line drive Milo made for her when he backed her against the wall and seared her with his look and lips. Whoa!

There are many cute ideas in here that make it a treasure. The hate-hate relationship. The restaurant….SWiN. I loved the owner and the Bavarian style. I liked that the main character is a diver. That’s different and not highly used. I enjoyed the intricate relationship between Milo and his parents. Well done on weaving that! As well as his friendship with Bran. Lastly but not least are the crossover characters from her other series.

What I didn’t care for were the flashbacks. Some are useful but mostly not. I am NOT a fan of flashbacks at all so I am partially biased here. Sometimes they can be used artfully and smoothly to tell certain aspects or a reason for some problem in the present. Also there seemed to be an large amount thinking in their heads and berating themselves time and again. Too much of that also gets repetitive and old. Just my opinion.

Overall it’s a wonderful story that I enjoyed. I chuckled at their reactions to each other multiple times. Woot woot on the epilogue and the introduction of a certain crossover character the next book(who likes motorcycles and girls) from the Carolina Connections. Looking forward to that!
