New York Times bestselling sensation Kylie Scott’s sexy, smart and unconventional opposites-attract love story looks at what happens when fate refuses to give up on what’s meant to be…
When Susie inherits her beloved aunt’s house, the last person she expects to help renovate it is Lars – her ex’s best friend. The same man who witnessed their humiliating public breakup six months ago. She isn’t exactly eager to have anyone around whose alliance is with the enemy but beggars can’t be choosers and the sooner the repairs are done, the sooner she can get back to embracing singledom.
Things go from awkward to unbelievable when Lars discovers a divorce certificate hidden in a wall and dated ten years in the future – with both their names on it. It couldn’t possibly be real…could it? As Susie and Lars work to unravel the document’s origins, the impossibility of a spark between them suddenly doesn’t seem so far-fetched. But would a relationship between them be doomed before it’s even begun?

A message from the future
Hot damn these two
It’s no secret that I’m a Kylie Scott fan and End of Story demonstrates why so well. This romance is all ease but with plot depth and the right amount of steam. I flew through this book and didn’t want to put it down.
Susie the FMC inherited a house from a close family member and the contractor who came to work on her house was the best friend of her vile ex. Lars was a pretty great guy but he seemed a bit of a light weight in terms of romance at first. There was more to him than that first glance.
Susie was a strong, relatable heroine. She had a tough shell, she didn’t tolerate any BS from anyone. She was the kind of friend you wish for, all loyalty and goodness and inside her heart was huge and soft. Add in a cat called Kat and the appearance of something from outside our time and this became a great hook for the book to be orientated around. The plot was perfect weekend reading material, nothing too heavy but meaty enough.
Scott has released a prequel novella that came at the back of the arc for me, so I’m presuming it will for the finished copy. The prequel filled some gaps in but I wouldn’t have bought it.
Thank you Piatkus Books for the review copy.
