New York Times bestselling sensation Kylie Scott's sexy, smart and unconventional opposites-attract love story looks at what happens when fate refuses to give up on what's meant to be

When Susie Bowen inherits a charming fixer-upper from her aunt, she’s excited to start living her best HGTV life. But when she opens the door to find that her contractor is none other than her ex’s best friend, Lars
the same man who witnessed their humiliating public breakup six months agoshe isnt exactly eager to have anyone around whose alliance is with the enemy. But, beggars can't be choosers and the sooner the repairs are done, the sooner she can get back to embracing singledom.

Things go from awkward to unbelievable when Lars discovers a divorce certificate hidden in a wall and dated ten years in the future
with both their names on it. It couldnt possibly be realcould it? As Susie and Lars work to unravel the documents origins, the impossibility of a spark between them suddenly doesnt seem so far-fetched. But would a relationship between them be doomed before it’s even begun?

Susie + Lars

We already met those two in the prequel novella BEGINNING OF THE END. You don't have to read that - but it was a cute introduction.
Susie is thirty years old. And she just inherited a fixer upper house in Seattle from her aunt.
Enter Lars. He's the best friend of her idiot ex. And he'll be working on her house.
Can she be friends with someone who likes her ex?
And that's not the only complication between Susie and Lars!


That was soo cute!
I could've lived without the weird divorce papers in the wall. That made it all a bit silly. I just don't know why it had to be in the book at all? But the rest of the story was so adorable. I just love those two together. I especially love their meal-sharing thing. That would be SO me with the right person!

I really loved reading this. Cutest romance with the cutest cover!

A tiny thing that I noticed in Kylie's books. The stories just ... start. We open the book and we're right in the first scene with both main characters.
There's no prologue/intro/a first page describing the location or situation. No IT WAS A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT ...
We're just bam! Right in the story.
It's not that I hate it. But it's a bit weird, right? I hate unnecessary bla bla and drama and too much redundant stuff in books, but the way Kylie does it somhow bothers me a tiny little bit... no idea why.

But pfft - I loved this book!

END OF STORY was an adorable rom-com-HGTV love story.
Run to your nearest amazon for your own Lars - this one is MINE!

ARC received for an honest review!
Sweet read with a bit of a Sandra/Keanu Lake House vibe to it.

I will say though, that you really do need to have read the prequel novella Beginning Of The End first, as End Of Story throws you right into things.  I will admit that I went back and checked that I didn't start half way through a chapter, I scratched my head and was a bit confuzzled at first.

I liked the story, I like Lars and Susie (gah, I had to go back and check her name, I completely forgot it, stupid bookzheimers!) - though the mystery papers in the wall thing I could have done without, but I guess we had to have the fate thing brought in somehow.

Now, I love everything I have read by Kylie Scott, but to me, this one kind of dragged. They fought things so hard for so long, I was just "get on with it already!"  For me, there could have been less of the will they/won't they, but that's just me.
