Parker Kent . . .
Complete and utter jerk
I made a vow—a vow to steer clear of guys like Parker. But when he shows up every Monday night at my workplace, that vow is torn to shreds. As much as I’d like, to I can’t ignore a customer.
At some point, a friendship forms. It’s not what I expected; he’s not what I expected. Those walls I put up are being torn down piece by piece, allowing Parker into my heart. Am I setting myself up for disaster, or is my Monday-night guy just the antidote my wounded heart needs?
I was looking for a good enemy to lovers romance and I found it I Monday Night Guy. Was I blown away by the book? No, I wasn’t but I did enjoy it and felt that it showed a side to some relationships that isn’t made known. Not all abuse is physical, it can be emotional and mental and that is something our heroine is dealing with.
Addy is not a fan of Parker, at all. In fact, she thinks he is a huge jerk and makes it known she doesn’t like him. They shared a moment a year before and unfortunately her boyfriend has made her life a living hell ever since. Don’t think that Addy is weak, physically she isn’t, in fact she can handle herself, but sometimes emotional hits can do more damage than any physical ones could. Trust me, I know from personal experience. When she takes her power back I was proud of her. Now did I like her throughout the entire book? Yes and no, I think her character just needed something more to her.
Parker may come across as a jerk but is he really? I liked his character even when I wanted to beat him for some of the things he pulls with Addy. He will surprise you I think, I know he did me. When he is with Addy you see the side of him that makes you like him.
Now while I liked the book I do think somethings were brushed to the side way too easily and should have been expanded more or even just taken out completely. I felt the chemistry between Addy and Parker, but I felt that at times it wasn’t enough, like I wanted more heat and more passion. Those things aside I did overall like it and plan on continuing to read this series.
