Jules Coronado has been away from her hometown for almost a decade but when an intruder breaks in to her childhood home, she finds herself coming back. Changes evidently took place in her small town, including her childhood best friend’s younger brother, Kip – now tall, slightly scruffed, all grown up and caught climbing into their garden wall.

Kip Villamor has a mission and despite Jules’ doubts, they team up: going on fieldtrips, tackling unsuspecting men, and trespassing offices to dig up dirt. But Jules has secrets of her own, one that might be exposed – unless she keeps her walls up. But climbing walls are Kip’s forte, remember?

Will her secrets keep her on his side, or will it force her to disappear again?


My Random Thoughts

Kip or Crispin is the ultimate Bae. He's cute and a bad ass. And Jules, she's just so likable. I mean she always freaks out most of the time, especially when it comes to Kip.

The Hometown Hazard is love.

I love it! I love it! I love it! Kip and Jules! Shipped.

It's one of the few stories I felt so kilig without smutty scenes, well, what I read most of the time are from Marian Tee (you know what to expect from her, hihi) and Manga authors, but then I've read some from Mina V. Esguerra, so I'm kinda familiar with the light theme romance novel, and they're sweet. It's the kind of story that will keep you flipping the pages until you reach the end. It's a suspense thriller romance novel. I've been curious the whole time - asking who? What? Why? When? Fuck, so that's what happened. This book makes you think I guess, and it's healthy haha. It's a must read, that's why it deserves 5 stars out of 5. Yes, definitely!

RATING: 5 out of 5 STARS
