A deliciously funny rom com from Random Romance. What happens when you fall in love with the man you hate?

Nicola Doyle's dating record is a disaster, and it doesn't improve when she returns to Redgum Valley, after an absence of twelve years, to look after her increasingly eccentric parents. There, she's thrown into regular contact with Blair Morrissey – the very reason she couldn't wait to leave town in the first place.

The decade-old scars are still raw from that humiliating day in high school – when Blair went from the boy she loved to the boy she hated.

Except Blair doesn't seem to be a ‘bad boy' any more – in fact, he's charming, infuriatingly helpful and extremely attractive.

If only Nicola could forgive and forget . . .

Nicola, the heroine of the story returns back to Redgum Valley after years. She swapped her place with her sister, Una for a few months so that Una can work on her novel. Meanwhile, Nicola will have to look for their parents. Anybody But Him started with a story of why Nicola wanted to escape from her hometown—Blair Morrissey, the boy who humiliated her in high school.

Anybody But Him is sweet and quick read. I enjoyed reading this one. It’s a cute read that you can finish in less than a day. I love Nicola. She had dyslexia, but that doesn’t stop her from doing her best and becoming an accountant. Blair was really charming and nice. He's the kind of guy I know I would fall in love with. The minor characters like Lainey, Dammit and Nicola’s parents were lovable.

I really like enjoy the dialogue in the story. I definitely love the conversation between Nicola and Blair. They are really witty and fun together. I can’t stop reading it from the moment I open the book. I wanted to know why Blair was being so mean towards Nicola in high school. And I did found out why. It was kind of sweet and sad. The story was straightforward without major twist. I think this is perfect for anyone who was looking for a quick romantic comedy.
