Review: Syler McKnight by Cora Brent

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Give Me Books Promotions.

I had no idea that Syler McKnight was going to be my first ever Cora Brent read until I realized that while I had several of her books somewhere in my Kindle cloud, I've yet to actually read them. Yeah, I admit it: I'm a book whore AND a book hoarder. With a blurb that snagged my interest and my need for more holiday romances before the holiday season closes out, I dove into this enemies-to-lovers story with a hint of falling-for-my-bestie's-sibling.

When Syler McKnight learns that his older sister Gemma and her kids has been left high and dry by her cheating husband, he knows heading back to their hometown to be with them over the holidays is the right thing to do. He doesn't expect, however, for Katrina Feldman to be there. She's Gem's best friend, so Syler shouldn't be all that surprised. Also not surprising? How they still push each other's buttons...and how they're still hot for each other.

This was a lighthearted read with lots of snark and back and forth between the main characters. In the ten years since an eighteen-year-old Syler and a twenty-year-old Katrina ended up spending one hot night together (all thanks to a case of mistaken identity), these two still had that crazy chemistry going, even though they couldn't seem to resist getting on each other's nerves. The humor was very good as was the romance with very little drama.

Admittedly, it took me longer to warm up to Katrina than it did to Syler. There were times where she just came off as though she felt she was better and more mature than Syler, but you couldn't even tell that she was older than him by a couple of years based on how she acted. She did manage to win me over, and I liked how their story ended. Dare I hope that Syler's siblings, Ryland and Gemma, also get books? I'm giving Syler McKnight four stars. ♥
