The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson • RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW


I’ve sworn off men. 

All men. 

Famous last words, right? You’re expecting some epic tale of reluctant love and my dramatic change of heart? Well, you’re not going to get it. 

I’m stubborn. And headstrong. And I’ve just survived the worst three years of my life. After escaping an abusive boyfriend to live in hostels and cheap hotels while I worked my way across Europe, I’ve come to two conclusions. 

The first? Now that I’m back home, I’m going to squander my expensive culinary degree on a food truck that caters to the late night drunk crowd. 

The second? I’m going to prove to the bastard across the plaza that my street food is better than his fussy five course monstrosities.

Killian Quinn might be Food and Wine’s Chef to Watch Out For. He might have a Michelin Star. He might have every food critic in the city wrapped around his too-large fingers. But he’s also pretentious and unbearably arrogant and the very opposite of me. 

So he can keep his unsolicited advice and his late night visits and his cocky smiles. I want none of it. Or him. 

I want the opposite.


Review by: Tatia 

There's something to be said about an author that is able to have you completely entranced with the story from the very beginning. I was obsessed with this cover. The words within were just as beautiful.

Vera is on her last plan. She's extended all of her resources, she's been all over the world, she's ready to accomplish her dream. Only, running a food truck wasn't part of that dream. Life has a funny way of showing you where you're supposed to be.
Killian. Dark. Mysterious. Brooding. World-renowned, award winning chef. You think he's a complete ass in the beginning and then you start to peel back the layers. Very surprising layers.

Ms. Higginson has a gift that keeps me coming back for more. Her ability to write this enemies to lovers romance in such a way that these characters become a part of you. Vera really came out of her shell. Some walls had to be broken down, picked away. She and Killian both had things they had to overcome. Little details here and there craft a story that I became absolutely addicted to. I couldn't get enough.

Review by: Flavia 

I Enjoyed this book. I don't know why but I was anxious for most part of this book.

Vera has had a terrible relationship and did the only thing she could to hold onto her dreams, she ran away to Europe. There she spent her time cooking in different kitchens and just soaking up the chef experience. Until she had to come home as her dad was sick.
So now she's home, and she has a food truck in her brother's parking lot. She caters to the late night club going people on their way home. 

That is where she meets chef Killian Quin. She is in awe of him, until she meets him and then she thinks he is just a

I loved their banter, the way he would sneak her food to him and then send her critique was hilarious. But she can't also deny that he is HOT and sexy and he is just what she doesn't need right now in her life.

“He’s too familiar. I don’t want a guy like Killian Quinn. I want the exact opposite of him.” 

But the both of them can't deny that they do have feelings for each other or some kind of attraction. But Vera doesn't trust men after what she's been through. And she wont let another man stand in her way of her dreams again. So she has to keep her emotional distance from him even though she can't keep her physical distance

“You’re all mystery, Vera. Half-truths and bold statements, but you hide everything about you.

This book was told entirely from Vera's point and it was a bit different, cause you kind of want to know what is going on in the guy's head. But not too different that it would take away from the story.
And I absolutely loved Killian. He looked to be this brooding sexy guy who is all about food. But there is so much more to him.

Definitely a story about learning to trust the opposite sex after going through the worst but also learning to trust yourself.
