You know what I always say, a man wants a lady in the street and a freak in the sheets… It’s like what they say about mullets, only way better.”


So here's the deal; In the last sixish months I've read at least four but probably closer to six Jessica Prince books (thank you, Kindle Unlimited). In scientific terms, that's a boatload. Want to know what my research has found? They all rock somthing fierce!

So, one a scale of one to ten, how creepy would it be to propose to Jessica Prince based off this awesome AF book?

Anything less than a five and I'm going for it. Because HOLY SHIT, did I love Opposites Attract.

Seriously, I don't think this book could have been more perfect for me. It had all the things and all the feels that make me love reading, and left me feeling practically giddy. And also, desperate for more, more, more from this author. (Truth time: I stopped about 15% into this book to gr

I received an ARC of this book through Love Affair With Fiction for an honest review.
My ladies, you will love this!

One night stand. Two neighbours. A dog called Slim Shady?!
It's a winning combo!
I had fun reading this. Like, really enjoyed myself.
I love when a rom com leaves me blushing and smiling at the same time. After reading few really dark and gritty books in the past few days, I really needed this.

Esta autora realmente me fisgou com as histórias criadas. Comecei um livro por acaso e fiquei curiosa sobre os outros personagens e fui lendo um por um.
Eu me diverti muito com a leitura e a interação entre os personagens foi muito interessante.
Tudo começou com uma transa de uma só noite e com o reencontro como vizinhos de apartamento.
Amei a heroína.
Recomendo muito.

4.0 "My Delilah" Stars!!!

Oh sweet fudgecicles!!!
Opposites Attract by Jessica Prince is one of the cutest story I had the pleasure of reading. The romance and comedy combined together had me captured since the very beginning until the end. It's like watching a movie so sweet you don't want to blink even once afraid to miss a single scene. That and having glimpses of other Locklaine guys and I was hoot!!! *Fanning


So, all of these started as best-friends' goal to be sinfully sexy in an adorable qui

In this book the author gives us Delilah (Del) Northcutt, who has been described as nerdy and quirky, in the re-bound from a cheating ex her best-friends persuades her to have a night out on the town, and have a hot one-night stand. Richard Locklaine has just come out of a long-term marriage from hell, and has no desire to ever be shackled again, fun he can do anything more – nope. What he doesn’t expect is Delilah.

To say that I was excited when I heard we were getting Richard's book would be putting it mildly. I'm a huge fan of Ms. Prince and of this series. Delilah and Richard truly are opposites and reading this book, watching their relationship build, especially after how they met, made me so very happy!

I am quickly becoming a huge fan of the romantic comedy genre. They are fun to read and leave you with a happy overall feeling. That is exactly what Opposites Attract by Jessica Prince was to me. I loved the story, the characters, the banter and all the shenanigans. I just kept laughing out loud.

In Opposites Attract, which is Book 2 in The Locklaine Boys series, a spin-off to Love Hate Relationship, which I also loved, we get Richard’s story. Richard, who is a very straight and narrow and no no

I feel like I've read a lot of books with florists recently! We have Delilah, who is now running her family's flower shop. Her parents retired and she loves her job. At the beginning of the book, she had recently broken up with her fiance after finding out he'd been sleeping around

If you are needing a quirky romance story to read filled with laughs , then Jessica Prince's Book #2 in the Locklaine Boys series - Opposites Attract is the read for you . As someone who has been called quirky and wears glasses and loves a variety of music including Taylor Swift , I felt right at home with the main female lead - Delilah. The novel starts off with Delilah finding out who boyfriend is cheating on her and so with her best friend Devon dress up to the nines and go clubbing. It is he ...more

Oh good lord I think I'm in love with Jessica Prince.

This book was absolutely fucking awesome. A little bit a of sweet mixed in with some piss your pants moments.

Throw in a man that won't take no and bam you have yourself a winner in my eyes.

I am actually sad that I read this already and have to wait for the next book. I'm feeling a little like an addict that needs her next fix immediately.

These books not only have a great story but also a great cast of characters. This is a romantic comedy with less sexy times than the first but the characters and lol moments mean you don't miss it much. Continued characters, HEA with epilogue. 5 stars if the books were just longer. Recommend reading!

4.5 Stars - Jessica Prince delivers another smart, sexy, and totally sassy RomCom with Opposites Attract. From their smoking hot first night to the hilariously awkward subsequent encounters, Delilah and Richard’s story is utterly amusing and so full of feels. I absolutely adored the chemistry between these two. They were such an unlikely duo and yet somehow Jessica Prince made them sizzle. Their story was wrought with witty banter, blush-inducing encounters, and a delicious tension that could no ...more

After the finalization of his divorce, Richard Locklaine has absolutely no plans to enter into anything like that kind of relationship again. As was revealed in the book that the Locklaine Boys series is spun off from, Love Hate Relationship, his marriage was a nightmare, and now that he's free from it, that's exactly how he intends to live ... free.

That doesn't stop him from becoming entranced by a beauty in a red dress that he encounters and shares a torrid night of passion with. For weeks aft

I laughed, I cried...

And it's getting repetitive but I have to say it...another winning entry in this series of fantastic characters. My only complaint is that we don't get nearly enough of all the wonderful characters we've been introduced to this far.

This is yet another great example of an author developing her characters in such a way that the reader comes to feel like they are real people and to care for them in that way. Delilah is a wonderful character you'd want as your friend and while i

As the second book in Ms. Prince's Locklaine Boys series, you don't need to have read the first to enjoy the characters. Ms. Prince does an admirable job of introducing you to the series without bogging the reader down with information overload.

This book centers around Delilah and Richard. When the two meet, they have both just gotten out of a bad relationship. Delilah's best friend and roommate, Devon, has convinced her that the best way to enjoy her newly single status is to have a great one

Well...

This is one of those stories you have to read. Like, a review isn't gonna cut it, you know?

Take the main characters. Total opposites. Staunchy, rigid, by the books. Carefree, outspoken, bold. I don't know what the universe says about attraction (how it's supposed to work) but man! These two opposite souls are meant to be.

Thing is, they'd already been there and done that. The one night stand Richard and Delilah share is off the charts explosive. You can't rate their compatibility on a scal

When Delilah’s best friend convinces her that she needs to have a one night stand, Delilah is a little reluctant at first, until she sees him. After a night of passion like she has never known before, she sneaks out not even knowing his name and now three months later regrets it. An unexpected visit at the flower shop from her one night stand sends her into shock when she finds out that he is the fiancé of the bride she is working for but also he doesn’t recognize her from their night together.

4.5 stars for book two in the Locklaine Boys series which is a spin-off of Love Hate Relationship but can be read as a complete stand alone. Although I strongly suggest you pick up both Fire & Ice and Love Hate Relationship since those were both hysterical rom-coms too.

Delilah Northcutt is adorable in her own geeky-chic kind of way. She owns and operates a flower shop. Has an addiction to rap music and is the momma to a bichon frise named Slim Shady. Delilah was content in life until her jerk of

Opposites Attract is book 2 in Locklaine Boys series, but can be read as a standalone. This was my first read from Jessica Prince and I loved it!

I Stayed up way to late reading and it was so worth it. Love how Jessica seems to make writing a RomCom so easy. This book will literally make you laugh out loud.

She had me in stitches, and I for real had a perma-smile on my face through the majority of this book. A couple lines to laugh at with me, "...friends don't give friends erections!"

I've basically read all of Jessica Prince's books and have had the pleasure of reviewing quite a few advance readers copies also. So you can say she's one of my favorite authors. From one book to the next, when I don't think it could be possible, she surprises me with yet another more amazing story. Don't get me wrong all her books are amazing but this one was by far my favorite. I think Slim Shady might have something to do with it.
