New #Review @ The Travelogue of a #Book #Addict

It's Day 2 of ‪#‎MyAddictionisReading‬ Virtual ‪#‎review‬ blog tour, and I'm over at The Travelogue of a Book Addict. Am thrilled to get a 2nd wonderful review at this stop of the tour. Pasting it here with the link:

"This is a funny tale of a tug of war between 2 rival columnists who end up falling for each other unknowingly.
The beginning of the book reeled me in with the introduction of the heroine, Charlotte and her new column, Side Swipe. Her first article for it had me... grinning in delight with her sassy attitude. Then the hero, Derry entered the scene with his sarcastic reply in his column, The Squire. Their first war of words had me wanting more and eager to see its progess.
The articles by the protagonists were entertaining and fun. They had me reading the book faster and they kept me interested in their love story. Then they met in person and the sparks flew!Characterwise, Charlotte delighted me with her tom boyish tendencies. I loved seeing her vulnerability when she was trying to woo Derry with her feminine wiles. She was my favourite of all the characters. Derry managed to disgust me with his play boy behaviour at the beginning. Then his softer side came out to play which had me liking him better. The story behind his attitude made me fall for him more towards the end. As for the supporting cast, the story wouldn't have made it without them.
The romance was just done right. It wasn't very heavy and at the same time managed to convey their like and chemistry. As for the humour, the book is full of small incidents which had me laughing under my breath.
Overall, the book made me enjoy their love story interspersed with laughter and sadness. The book is full of engaging writing and I can see myself reading more of the author's work.

My one line review : A fun love story with engaging writing and humorous incidents.
My rating : 4/5
My reread factor : 4/5"
