Review: The Right One by Felice Stevens

Ooh, I do believe I've just found the newest book to add to my list of favorite Felice Stevens reads! The Right One is an enemies-to-lovers, opposites-attract romance, and while it does have some angst to it, it also had a lighter overall feel. After divorcing his abusive husband, Morgan Cantrell is starting over. He's moved into an apartment and doing his best to make it feel like home. If you ask the building superintendent (and owner), however, Morgan's apartment is more like ground zero, what with one thing after another happening in there that requires Leo DeLuca to show up and fix it. The two men spend more time bickering than anything else, but all it takes is one kiss to knock their worlds off their axes. That kiss leads to one night--a night that they wish they could forget, but that's easier said than done. And Morgan and Leo? Well, they're far from done.
I loved this book to bits! It was so damn entertaining AND endearing, which isn't necessarily a guaranteed combo in every book I read. Morgan and Leo gave me that delicious bit of push and pull that I look for in romances that employ the enemies-to-lovers trope. While this is more lighthearted than most of the author's previous fare, the angst from Felice Stevens that I've come to love was still there, albeit in a smaller dose. Stevens has done a highly impressive job of making sure that everything is balanced out while still ensuring that the romance doesn't get overshadowed by anything else. Morgan and Leo were highly likable main characters that I absolutely enjoyed getting to know. Their relationship and the evolution of it was one of my favorite things about The Right One, and by the end of their story, the satisfied grin on my face said it all. It gets five stars.
