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.
Review: Love Between Enemies by Molly E. Lee is an engaging tale. Two enemies who could be perfect together, if only they stopped fighting. It was interesting to watch the protagonists play sweet and fiery with one another. Sparks fly high in this read. Attraction, check. Chemistry, double check. Gets under each other’s skin…check. Fighting turns romantic as the pages are flipped. A big party gives these two enemies a chance to make or break their romance. I was intrigued.
Zoey and Gordon have fought each other over top spots with grades and everything. Nobody knows them as well as they know each other. But when it comes to the big test…can they resolve it all or take each other down for the last time?
Molly E. Lee has captured the young teens in this book down perfectly. I can see, hear, and feel everything the characters do. Absolutely, crazy. It was like being there in person. This piece of fiction felt too real. That was a good thing. For one, it made the characters likable. I laughed a lot and found myself curious as to what lies ahead for them both. Pranks, forgiveness, love, and fun are found here. The only thing, I didn’t like was how Zoey could be so selfish and yet be forgiven too easily. I honesty think she should have been punished more and not forgiven by Gordon so fast. He should have hated her or worse torn her to pieces. It was too fairy tale like. Too good to be true. When Gordon needed something Most and it could have helped him only to have Zoey take it all away…it was disappointing. Other than that kind of issue, I liked the story.
