Another wingman bites the dust in this enemies-to-lovers standalone romantic comedy.
For the past year, I’ve been working my butt off to start my own coffee company on Whidbey.
A weekend in Cabo with sun, tiny bikinis, and vacation hook-ups is exactly the kind of tension relief I need.
What I don’t need is a bruised jaw, having to bribe my way out of jail, a hellion set on ruining my life, and my mother seeing a picture of my assets on "The Twitter."
Caribou Caldwell is my worst nightmare. Unfortunately, she’s also the star of my sexiest dreams.
What happens when a small town guy becomes the focus of a million fantasies? As Erik Kelso navigates his sudden notoriety, will his feelings for Cari turn out to be anything but love?
Anything but Love is the third book in the Wingmen series, a spin off of Modern Love Stories. Like Ready to Fall (Wingmen #1) and Confessions of a Reformed Tom Cat (Wingmen #2), it can be read as a standalone romantic comedy.
Anything but Love by Daisy Prescott is the third book in the Wingmen series. The Wingmen series is a group of interconnected romantic comedies that can each be read as standalones. I know the summary describes this as an enemies to lovers story, but man oh man is that ever right. As soon as you start Anything But Love you immediately can feel how much dislike Cari feels for Erik. After the first scene, I wrote her off. I thought there was no way she was going to be the romantic interest because I could feel genuine hate searing from her eyeballs. But let me just tell you, that made the rest of the book all the more fun. Once I realized that she was Cari, I knew their story was going to be a good one. And it was. Anything But Love is the first book I have read from the Wingmen series and if they are all as funny, and hot, and fantastic as this one, then what the heck have I been doing with my life?? I need to be reading all of Daisy’s books!
Anything But Love is the story of Erik and Cari. I didn’t know Erik from the previous stories, so I don’t know just how much of a player or wingman he was previously, but Anything But Love is one giant rollercoaster of events and emotions for him. The poor guy does not catch a break- his life gets jumbled up in one thing after another. And it certainly does not stay in Mexico like he wants it to. I love a book that can integrate our world of social media well, and social media plays a big part in this story. The scary thing is, it is so realistic. I could see what happened to Erik, happening to guys and girls all over the place. Watching Cari and Erik try and deal with the fallout of everything was half the fun for me. I am a new (newly huge) fan of Daisy’s. I just love her writing. She writes fantastically delicious tension, and her humor is spot on. And I know this has nothing to do with the story, but I also love that her bio says she lives in a real life Stars Hollow. I want to visit!
Bottom line: Anything But Love is a solidly great book. The writing is top notch, the characters are relatable, and likeable. And the story line will have you laughing. I could see the Wingmen books being made into movies- or at least Anything But Love. It would make a great romantic comedy.
