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.
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.
