It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time by Kylie Scott
Genre: contemporary romance

Seven years ago Adele made a grave mistake than estranged her from her loved ones. She never looked back. She would have spent an eternity hiding but then her father had to go and get married.
Avoiding her father’s best friends and her long time crush, Peter is impossible. What’s more, she has to live with him for the duration of the wedding.
Peter hates her. Adele can’t face him. Can they get through without killing each other?
I absolutely adore this story. I don’t think anyone was more excited than I when I heard the premise of this story. Kylie Scott pulled off the taboo theme so brilliantly. I can’t even begin to express all my love for Adele and yes even Peter. *(can’t resist them abs)*
Adele is a bamf and honestly an utter inspiration. She messed up as a kid but who doesn’t? I admire the way she took responsibility but I love her more for standing up for herself. Also, she’s is so damn funny. I just want to be bffs with her.
Peter is a complicated man. I get why he was angry but after a point it was like dude please shut up and kiss the love of your life AND OWN IT. I kind of wanted to hear things from his perspective as well just so I could really understand what he was going through. But to each their own.
The ending seemed a bit rushed to me and I really wanted to see the both of them fully embracing their relationship but otherwise this story was bang on amazing.

Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at eighteen hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was.
Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation—confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Add her father to the misunderstanding, and Pete had been left with a broken nose and a business on the edge of ruin. The man had to be just as glad as everyone else when she left town.
Seven years on, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but a fully grown adult more than capable of getting through the wedding and being polite. But all it takes is seeing him again to bring back all those old feelings.
Sometimes first loves are the truest.
