Happy Monday! Today on Diversity Between the Pages we’re featuring a review on Taking a Chance on the Enemy by Liwen Y. Ho.
About the Book
She’s an art teacher used to coloring outside the lines. He’s the straight-laced cop who pulled her over. Sparks fly when she decides to take a chance on the enemy.
Feisty and adventurous, art teacher Sam Koo is used to getting what she wants, including talking her way out of traffic tickets. When it comes to money matters though, she’s a lost cause. Her studio is in trouble, and there’s no way of charming herself out of this mess.
Police officer Lucas Choi is the last person she expects to rescue her. Handsome and rule-abiding, he was the best—and worst—part of her high school experience. When they meet a decade later, he’s still on her case and quick to point out her flaws.
Their differences drive each other crazy, but also draw them closer. The attraction is tangible, yet so are Sam’s fears. Will she choose to protect her heart or trust the only man who ever rejected her?
Each book in the Taking Chances on Love series is a standalone and can be read separately. To follow the stories as they occur in the overall timeline, feel free to read them in this order:
Taking a Chance on Mr. Wrong – Book Two
Taking a Chance on the Heartbreaker – Book One
Taking a Chance on the Enemy – Book Three
*Taking a Chance on the Enemy was formerly titled Drawn to You. This story was edited and rereleased with a new cover for your reading pleasure.
This is my first time reading anything by Liwen Y. Ho, and I truly enjoyed reading how opposite personalities attract. Sam Koo, an artist whose studio is on the edge of bankruptcy and is disorganized, is the complete of Lucas Choi, a police officer who is organized and a stickler for not breaking rules. They have known each other from school and drove each other crazy back then. They meet up again when Lucas pulls Sam over. This is an easy to read, sweet book as well as the chemistry and tension between the two characters. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________
