Book review

WE SHOULDN’T By VI KEELAND

Blurb

Bennett Fox walked into my life on one hell of a crappy Monday morning.

I was late for the first day at my new job—a job I’d now have to compete for even though I’d already worked eight years to earn it, because of an unexpected merger. 

While I lugged my belongings up to my new office, a meter maid wrote me a parking summons.

She’d ticketed a long line of cars—except for the Audi parked in front of me, which happened to be the same make and model as mine.

Annoyed, I decided to regift my ticket to the car that had evaded a fine. Chances were, the owner would pay it and be none the wiser.

Except, I accidentally broke the windshield wiper while slipping the ticket onto the car’s window.

Seriously, my day couldn’t get any worse.

Things started to perk up when I ran into a gorgeous man in the elevator. We had one of those brief moments that only happened in movies.

You know the deal…your body lights up, fireworks go off, and the air around you crackles with electricity. 

His heated stare left me flush when I stepped off the elevator. 

Maybe things here wouldn’t be so bad after all. 

Or so I thought.

Until I walked into my new boss’s office and met my competition.

The gorgeous man from the elevator was now my nemesis. His heated stare wasn’t because of any mutual attraction. It was because he’d seen me vandalize his car. And now he couldn’t wait to annihilate his rival. 

There’s a fine line between love and hate—and we shouldn’t cross it. 

We shouldn’t—but straddling that line could be so much fun.

Review:

I had so much I wanted to say when I finished reading this book. But I waited to long to write my review that my adrenalin rush evaporated. So, this review will be more character focus.

I have nothing to hate on Annalise, I don’t love her, but I like everything about her. She’s not dramatic, girly but not clingy or whine. She’s tough and determine.

Bennett on the other hand was a fun guy from the start, he, however, did not grow on me until chapter 9 where he told that Annalise ex is… I don’t know, an asshole (sorry for the word) from this point on Bennett just made me like him and love him more and more. I love how he threatened Annalise with a wink. Who knows that a wink can be a weapon? Hahaha 😀 Oh Bennett. He made me laugh almost all the time, I never expected that him to make me cry. I was sniffing and to stop reading the chapter to enjoy the pain… ehem.

My most favorite character though is Lucas. And I think that his grandmother got it easy. I did not like how that turn out. She was so mean to Lucas. What she deserved was to lose right to be his guardian and live the rest of her life regretting she did not treat him better.

All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book. What I love most about We Shouldn’t is that the drama is not only concentrated on between Bennett and Annalise. It’s balance. And the humor inserted in it always made me smile.

Thanks to Claire for recommending the book.
