SYNOPSIS: What do you do when the entire nation is on lockdown?
If you’re an heiress to a billion-dollar fashion company, then you quarantine in a glamorous cabin and finish your final semester of NYU online. The best way to focus on her upcoming valedictorian honor is away from her family, classmates, and the paparazzi. Cameron St. James is ready to get out of the big city and head Upstate for seclusion, despite her parents’ pleas to stay home.
What do you do when a pandemic is sweeping the world?
If you’re barely making ends meet, then you isolate yourself in your best friend’s mountain cabin with breathtaking views and no neighbors for miles. It’s the perfect safe place away from three roommates who don’t take the life-threatening epidemic seriously. Elijah Ross is ready to work remotely and focus on his next big promotion, assuming he’ll still have a job after this.
What happens when things don’t go as planned, and you’re stuck with the one person you dislike the most?
You improvise and do whatever it takes to avoid each other, though it proves to be impossible. The cold evenings alone turn into movie and popcorn nights together by the fireplace. Days turn into weeks, and eventually, more than just a friendship blossoms. As the unknown haunts them, they lean on one another for comfort—until someone pops their safety bubble and threatens everything.
The Two of Us is an enemies to lovers, brother’s best friend standalone romance set in the current affairs of history in the making. Though the character’s storyline is fiction, the circumstances are very real, and we’re sensitive to this topic. This is a story about hope, love, and so much more with a guaranteed happily ever after.
REVIEW: I truthfully didn’t now what to expect with this, but Kennedy Fox brought their usual writing style and made it as good as always! With all the relevant elements around what it means to live through what we are living through right now, I was completely invested in this book. I also really liked Cameron and Elijah together. It was fun seeing their growth during the story. And in true Kennedy Fox fashion their is a moment I was not expecting thrown in the make my heart race (not in the sexy way, but don’t worry that’s there too). Haha. Overall, I just really enjoyed this take on a romance during quarantine!
I also want to say that I sincerely appreciated how Kennedy Fox portrayed some of the realities of anxiety. I’m always thankful for authors who normalize mental health conditions in their books!
Thank you to Kennedy Fox and Wildfire Marketing Solutions for an eARC in exchange for an honest review!
