Ainslie Paton was one of my favorite romance discoveries last year. I completely adored The Love Experiment - it turned me into an instant fan of the author. I was beyond thrilled to find out that she was continuing the series on with The Love Coupon. I didn't think it was possible, but I think I fell for this book even more than The Love Experiment. It had all the ingredients for a perfect romance read.

I'm all for pairings of grumpy heroes and peppy heroines, and I got exactly that with The Love Coupon. Flick was an adorable ball of energy! And an ambitious ball of energy at that. I loved how hardworking she was. Flick was also a girl with a huge heart. Despite the way her family members mistreated her for being successful, she still went out of her way to ensure that they were happy. She had just gotten her dream job in Washington and had to find temporary housing, which is how she and the hero Tom come to be roommates. Of course, grumpy Tom wanted nothing to do with Flick. He found her annoying and far too chipper for his likes. I was very easily charmed by Tom. He had me swooning - I don't know what it is about the silent grumpy hero that I can't resist. Underneath all those buttoned-up layers was a sweetheart. Even though he didn't like to show it, he grew to care deeply about Flick. Honestly, there was so much to love about the guy, but I'm going to let you discover him all yourself. :)

Flick and Tom's romance had a great progression to it. They annoyed each other, but there was a lot of chemistry between them even when they were pushing each other's buttons. Flick found a way to worm herself and settle in Tom's heart, and it was adorable to watch. I'm a little bit ashamed to admit this, but I may have squeed a few times in joy. When the love coupons were introduced in the second half of the book, they amplified the tension between them. The banter, the sexy games and all the romantic declarations made my heart so happy! As always, I was engrossed in Ainslie's writing in The Love Coupon. There's something very unique and addicting about it.

The Love Coupon was a blast to read! If you enjoy hot roommate romances with some hate to love dynamics, then give this book a try. You won't be disappointed!
