Review: Perfect Opposite by Zoya Tessi

Perfect Opposite by Zoya Tessi

Their wishes were simple and modest. Fate had other things in store though, and she can be a real bitch sometimes.

- All he wanted was to get the job done and somehow to endure those long months playing nanny to a spoiled little rich girl. Without strangling her with his bare hands in the process. Well, it is going to be much easier said than done.

- All she wanted was to escape the past and live like any other nineteen-year-old girl. Her plan definitely didn’t include the arrogant, tattooed savage, with his awful mohawk hair and lack of social graces, whose only mission was to stick real close and mess up her life.

But, people aren't always what they seem to be, are they?

Pages: 263
Format: ebook (only)
Published by: Zoya Tessi
Genre: NA Romance



When I first got the chance to read this book free from the author, I was intrigued, but also quite hesitant. I was ready for the bad-boy vibe that I knew was going to be inevitable in Alex, but not very thrilled by the "nanny" term that was used to label him in the description. But nevertheless, I picked up this book, ready to read, and was delighted to find out this book was, in fact, quite interesting with an amazing story-line. The prologue itself drew me in with the air of mystery coming from those first few pages and then after that, I was caught up by this book.

The characters were well-written and very easy to love, and want to know more about their lives. The romance was exciting and believable, and at times... adorable. This was an excellent, quick read with a satisfying conclusion. I am very glad that I picked this book up to read, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves romances books with quite an unexpected ending.

And there was an added bonus of Alex, who was 100% - ok maybe 95% because he did have his moments - swoon-worthy (and well he does have a mohawk which kind-of turned me off)!
Note: I received this book free from Zoya Tessi in exchange for an honest review.
