Zoey Handler is ready to put an end to her decade-long rivalry with Gordon Meyers. They’ve traded top spot between valedictorian and salutatorian for years, but all that’s over now. Right? But after a crazy graduation speech prank gets out of hand, suddenly their rivalry turns into all-out war. Time to make peace with a little friendly payback.
Step one? Make him believe they’re now friends.
Step two? Show him the time of his life at an epic graduation party.
Step three? Don’t fall for his tricks.
Step four? Absolutely, positively, do not kiss him again.
So what if he’s cute? (Okay, hot.) So what if he’s charming? (Heaven help her, tempting.) So what if he apologizes? (That has to be fake.) She knows the real Gordon. And no matter how much her heart begs her to stop, there’s no turning back.
At this point, it’s definitely safe to say that I have a weakness for Entangled Teen Crush books. They’re incredibly cute, satisfyingly sweet, and so much fun. Love Between Enemies by Molly E. Lee was no exception and surely made me swoon.
In the span of about two days, a long-lasting rivalry between ambitious and highly competitive teens –Gordon and Zoey, will finally come to an end… But not without some shenanigans, mixed signals, swoony flirting, and sexy kisses.
Gordon had my heart from the very beginning. He was such a great lead character and I loved reading his POV. He did make some mistakes, but more than makes up for it throughout the story. He’s genuine, sweet, passionate and very caring. Oh and his relationship with his father, so heartwarming. That was definitely my favorite part of this book. I loved all their scenes together — you could just see how much they both cared about each other and how they were willing to do anything for what they love.
Zoey was a little bit more difficult to like. She just seemed so cold, unforgiving, and even heartless at times. But, once I got to know her more, I realized that she’s not as tough as she appears to be. She’s just any other normal teenager who just wants to be able to make her own choices and be seen as an independent and intelligent person.
I have to admit, it took me quite a while to warm up to this story and there were a few things I didn’t like. With that being said, I still really enjoyed the book. There were plenty of moments that made me laugh and smile and swoony scenes that definitely made my heart flutter. I even teared up a bit at one point. I do wish there had been more romance and build up — Absolutely wanted more steamy scenes with Gordon and Zoey.
This book was a quick and adorable read that you could enjoy in one sitting. I may have had a few issues and the ending did feel a bit rushed, but overall, the story was filled with fun, drama, and swoon — all the things I enjoy and love in a YA romance.
I received an advanced reader copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
