I hate Drew Woods, and she hates me.
Even so, I'm not the cold jerk most make me out to be, and I have no problem moving the single mom and her baby into my home. I do, however, draw a line when it comes to acting on the way her loose lips make me feel.
She's too mouthy, too prying, and her curves are way too distracting.
I might have lost my way after a nearly fatal car accident, but I'm not stupid. Giving in to Drew would be a short-lived fix for this pain I'm saddled with, and I knead something permanent.
I'd be insane to think what we have could be anything other than temporary...right?

In Review: My Thoughts
I enjoyed Winston and Drew’s hate to love story in I Knead You Tonight. Emphasis on hate, because dang these two DID NOT like each other in the beginning. It’s been a while since I read a book with this much antagonistic behavior between the two main characters. But even as they were having a go at each other — and I don’t mean in a sexy way — the chemistry between them was undeniable. I knew it was going to get good (and hot) when everything finally exploded. I wasn’t wrong.
I’ve got to admit, I was a little unsure about Winston because quite frankly, he was a dick to Drew at times. But, he won me over and it only took a few chapters. He was quite sweet under that prickly exterior. He was dealing with a lot and probably not doing it in the best way. Drew was good for him. Winston’s time with Drew (and her son, Riley) helped him grow up.
On the other hand, I adored Drew from the very beginning. She didn’t have the easiest life, being a single mom trying to support a baby, but she was driven and had a good heart. Winston’s comments to her hurt MY feelings at times, with some of it bordering on bully romance. I’m just glad that didn’t go on very long. My feelings about this book would’ve been very different if it had. But thankfully, it was resolved relatively quickly. Drew and Winston ended up being a really good match. Once they let go of all the nasty banter anyhow. They brought out the best in each other.
I Knead You Tonight was funny, sweet and sexy. I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read in the Slice Series. (Side note: Teagan Hunter has THE BEST punny book titles. I’m obsessed.) The characters in this series are so fun and quirky. I hope to see more of them soon!
I hate Drew Woods. But not because I don’t like her. I hate her because I do like her… and she won’t let me have her.
Winston could either love me for a lifetime or shatter me in two. There is no in-between when it comes to us, and that’s one hell of a gamble to take.
