Rocco is dealing with daemons he feels only alcohol can help make them disappear.
The two meet while Sophie lives with April and Jones. Rocco, who is one of the team mechanics, is immediately attracted to her. Sophie knows he has a reputation as a womanizer and one night stands and is not in the least interested in him. She says. As things turn out she ends up accepting Rocco’s offer of a room available in his apartment, an offer she can't refuse after spending weeks on the couch at April’s place.
Rocco and Sophie develop a strong friendship and eventually open up about their troubled pasts to each other. But things are not meant to go all smooth. Just when they think they've overcome their biggest hurdles new ones are on the horizon.
I've read every book in this series but I think this is one of my favourite. You connect with the characters instantly, feeling their pain and their sorrows. You want nothing more then for them to find the happiness they deserve. An emotional roller coaster with all the drama and you can't put it down until you find out what happens next. Another 5 star read. Well done Jennifer Ryder❤️
Given it was just on a year since I had met both Rocco and Sophie in Strike, my memory of their interactions was hazy. I pretty much remembered how fresh Sophie felt, that Rocco had this air of arrogant bad boy and I’m pretty sure he made some comment that riled Sophie up big time. I probably should have had a reread before I got into their story. Really I didn’t need to worry about any of that though as I was completely sucked into Switch within the first two chapters. The balance of the characters is so perfect. You have poor Sophie who has a very clear view for her future but can’t seem to catch a break, and then there is the deeply flawed Rocco. Both have secrets and it’s when they’re revealed that you realise how special these two are.
I have to admit, this book was so much more emotional than I was expecting. I think I was expecting something fairly light hearted and a bit comical but what I ended up with was 290 pages that completely blew me and all my expectations away. Don’t get me wrong, this book has some fantastic light moments, but for me the brilliance lies in how both Rocca and Sophie develop individually and how their relationship grows. I am a massive fan of slow burning books and this relationship is one that perfectly simmers along at a rate that has you right on the edge and feeling everything. There’s a line “It’s been a slow burn … it’s gotten hotter over time, but there’s other s*** there too. An understanding,” that perfectly sums up their relationship. They gradually progress from barely tolerating each other to developing a special, symbiotic friendship to lovers. Nothing is simple for this couple but they are a pillar of support for each other.
For me the true measure of a book is how I feel when I reach the end. Occasionally you find a book so great that once you’ve reached the end, you just want to go back to the beginning and start again. This is how I felt at the conclusion of Switch. At the risk of sounding cliqued, if you only read one book this year, make it this one!
