“The Enemy”

Independently Published Aug 2020

Book Description:

It’s been twelve years since I’ve seen him. Twelve years since he won our war of wits by outsmarting me with a tactic I didn’t even know was allowed. But tonight…I resurrect the battle.

Ryan Henderson is back in town for our best friends’ wedding, and I plan on showing him exactly how much I don’t care about him—or the almost kiss he ruthlessly dangled over me after graduation.

A lot has changed since our feuding days. I’m a successful bakery owner now, and I plan to rub every delicious detail of my life in his ugly face.

Just one problem: his face is gorgeous.

He wasn’t supposed to look like this or pursue me like a sexy guided missile. I must stay strong until the wedding is over and Ryan scurries back into whatever alternate universe he escaped from.

His interest in me is nothing but a continuation of the games we played in high school…right?

But the longer he stays, the more I wonder if I’m wrong and his tender smile and heated attentions are genuine. Maybe it’s not a game.

Ha! Who am I kidding? This is Ryan we’re talking about. Of course it’s a game. A game called war. And this time, I will win.

My review:

We read this for book club and it was so fun! Perfect enemies to lovers with pranks. Kind of a second chance romance too with commitment phobia. This can be read as a stand alone from “The Match”.
🍩
June co-owns a donut shop with her bestie Stacy. Stacy is getting married and moving. So June, a tad dramatic and a flair for southern charm and sass, is the maid of honor. To her horror, Ryan aka the enemy, is the best man.
🍩
Ryan wanted to return sooner and see June but he couldn’t face her. What if the idealized version of her didn’t hold up to the real life tiny fierce one?
🍩
I really liked their chemistry and their struggles were realistic. A few times I was getting mad at Ryan for not listening to June when she’d say to leave. Yes she’s stubborn but he was a little too forward letting himself into her home.
🍩
Now I want donuts and pretzels 🤤 there were swoony kisses, wet shirt/shirtless man. June was hilarious. Can’t wait to read the next book by Sarah.
