Anybody But Him by Claire Baxter

A deliciously funny rom com from Random Romance. What happens when you fall in love with the man you hate?

Nicola Doyle's dating record is a disaster, and it doesn't improve when she returns to Redgum Valley, after an absence of twelve years, to look after her increasingly eccentric parents. There, she's thrown into regular contact with Blair Morrissey – the very reason she couldn't wait to leave town in the first place.

The decade-old scars are still raw from that humiliating day in high school – when Blair went from the boy she loved to the boy she hated.

Except Blair doesn't seem to be a ‘bad boy' any more – in fact, he's charming, infuriatingly helpful and extremely attractive.

If only Nicola could forgive and forget . . 

Tifferz Take~

Ms. Baxter's contemporary romance is witty and heartfelt. I loved Blair and Nicola's relationship or lack there of. They have history and need to hash things out to get to the bottom of things. Nicola had to come to terms with her feelings and she it is mite slow but does work it out in the end. Blair has some issues he needs to come to terms with as well. I really savor the friendship that Blair and Nicola develop. Blair seems to be in the right place at the right time. But, Nicola does not always feel the same way. One of my favorite parts in when Nicola gets locked in the bathroom. Oh and the need for a plumber. I  felt so bad for Nicola. I  was thrilled to laugh about it even though Nicola did not find it funny. Ms. Baxter does an excellent job with character development and the plot of the book was fun!
I would take great pleasure in reading more from Ms. Baxter! I hope she writes Lainey's story as she needs a happily ever after!

Just FYI~ This contains no sexual situations or swearing.
