Anyta Sunday´s new work: Sexy and Cute (Signs of Love#2)

Scorpio Hates Virgo (Signs of Love, #2)Scorpio Hates Virgo by Anyta Sunday
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It's not a secret that I love Anyta Sunday. I am a huge fan. She gives me that mood and makes me forget the world around.
Her stories makes me smile and gives me a silly face all the way while reading them.

With Scorpio hates Virgo the experience has been a little bit different though (at least during the first half of the book) so my "Anyta-I-love-you" face, this time has been more subtle, more "I-love-you-but-something-is-a-bit-off-here" face. A "yes but no" face. Something like this:

But leave it to Anyta to overtake that little pothole on my way and finally give me what I wanted. Leave it to her to deliver the sexy and cute I craved. Because, after a first half not feeling it, she finally did it and even if not my favorite and, even if I was expecting more (my fault and just myself to blame), this book gave me something , and I finished it loving Percy and Cal and with the peaceful and beautiful feeling Anyta always gives me. She makes me see the world full of rainbows and unicorns

So... to the matter. Scorpio hates Virgo is book 2 in the Signs of Love Series but it can be read as a standalone because the MCs first appearance is here and not in Leo loves Aries.
But there is a nexus between this installment and book 1, and that is Crystal, Theo's mom, who now delivers her beloved horoscope to another couple. There she goes, spreading hope and love around the cul-de-sac she lives in.

Our MCs has been neighbors for a few years and when this story starts, Percy is dealing with grief and Cal with a breakup and some family drama. They are not enemies, they are friends. Or something similar to Friends. The word frenemy is used in the book, so we can go with it and conclude that they are neighbors who like to call each other "nemesis" (even if I insist, they are not).

Feelings are latent since the beginning and what Anyta shows us here is the slow burn between them, the steps from the "you are my enemy" to the long-awaited "I love you". This book is mostly about friendship and even if the slow burn is delicious and the UST heavy in the second half, I missed a bit of relationship development. I wanted more. I didn´t feel the conexión between them as I needed to feel it. But probably this was just me, so don´t mind me, I just needed to spit it here, as usual.

What I really loved:

- Cal and his interactions with his family. How he takes care of his girls. I know we don't need a man to watch over us, but it's really nice and encouraging to have someone thinking you are his responsibility and trying to make life easy for you, even if that life is not the easiest to him neither. And that's Cal. He gives up his own self to be his family supporter. Sweet. Honorable. Decent.

- They are so cute and adorable... Even with my problem with the first half of the book when I started my appreciation of both, the hit came hard. Like I was all "I'm not feeling it, I'm not smiling, I'm not implied" and then, 52% in the story and all I wanted was to hug them (both) to kiss them (both) and for them to kiss each other (hot and messy or sweet and slow, I didn't care about the how, I just wanted them doing the dirty and cuddling after the sweating)

"I want to feel everything you´re willing to give me, and I hope you´re willing to give me everything"

I haven't read any reviews yet but I saw pretty high ratings so I understand my niggle with this book is just mine. Maybe I was prepared to be blown away and I was shocked when I wasn't. But it was a humor thing mostly. I missed that humor in the first half. Not because it wasn´t there, because it was but I couldn't perceive Anyta's scent in it and it had me confused. So it was like I was Deep in a hole till, abruptly, I was thrown out of it and enjoying the couple, the story and everything. I´m giving this book 4 stars after all. It´s Anyta we´re talking about here. We're talking serious.
By the way, in Scorpio hates Virgo we can witness Theo and Jaime's happiness and it is so great to watch. They came to visit and it was a very welcomed one *fangirling loudly*

Recommended, happy reading!
