Sparks fly when an occult expert and a disgraced archeologist become enemies-with-benefits in this steamy romance.
Riley Rhodes finally has the chance to turn her family’s knack for the supernatural into a legitimate business when she’s hired to break the curse on an infamous Scottish castle. Used to working alone in her alienating occupation, she’s pleasantly surprised to meet a handsome stranger upon arrival—until he tries to get her fired.
Fresh off a professional scandal, Clark Edgeware can’t allow a self-proclaimed “curse breaker” to threaten his last chance for redemption. After he fails to get Riley kicked off his survey site, he vows to avoid her. Unfortunately for him, she vows to get even.
Riley expects the curse to do her dirty work by driving Clark away, but instead, they keep finding themselves in close proximity. Too close. Turns out, the only thing they do better than fight is fool around. If they’re not careful, by the end of all this, more than the castle will end up in ruins.
Do Your Worst is an enemies to lovers, forced proximity story between a curse breaker and an archaeologist.
I did enjoy some aspects of this book, mostly the fact that it was fun. Do Your Worst is hilarious, and made me laugh out loud a couple of times.
Even though it was fun, I was mostly disappointed by the book. The plot didn’t convince me at all, and at times it was ridiculous. The curse-breaking aspect was interesting, but as the story progressed the plot got more and more absurd (for instance the ritual thing was so unreal and just seemed like an easy way out).
As much as I loved Riley and how reckless and chaotic she was, I didn’t feel the chemistry between Riley and Clark. I think Clark was awful to Riley at the beginning, and at the end, it just seemed like he had a sudden character change. The only thing that helped the romance was the dual POV.
It was fun but could have been better. It was longer than it should have been, and the curse-breaking climax should have been done differently.
