Description

All's faire in love and war for two sworn enemies who indulge in a harmless flirtation in a laugh-out-loud rom-com from debut author Jen DeLuca. 

Emily knew there would be strings attached when she relocated to the small town of Willow Creek, Maryland, for the summer to help her sister recover from an accident, but who could anticipate getting roped into volunteering for the local Renaissance Faire alongside her teenaged niece? Or that the irritating and inscrutable schoolteacher in charge of the volunteers would be so annoying that she finds it impossible to stop thinking about him?  

The faire is Simon's family legacy and from the start he makes clear he doesn't have time for Emily's lighthearted approach to life, her oddball Shakespeare conspiracy theories, or her endless suggestions for new acts to shake things up. Yet on the faire grounds he becomes a different person, flirting freely with Emily when she's in her revealing wench's costume. But is this attraction real, or just part of the characters they're portraying?   

This summer was only ever supposed to be a pit stop on the way to somewhere else for Emily, but soon she can't seem to shake the fantasy of establishing something more with Simon or a permanent home of her own in Willow Creek.

ho hum

I didn't finish listening because the story was rather dull. It's a contrived setup for a typical romcom. I prefer less internal monologue and more punchy dialogue. I like characters with realistic personality quirks and character growth. The main character was too nice, too self-deprecating. Blah.

Steer me to the closest Ren Faire!

I enjoyed this book far more than I expected to. Not usually a romance fan, I loved the Renaisance Faire details and the snarky dialogue. The characters were likable and intelligent. In all, a very entertaining book and surprisingly well written.

A contemporary romance with historical intrigue

A contemporary romance that has sword fighting, corsets, and an uptight hero named Simon who moonlights as a sexy pirate named Ian? This book was a great escape, and totally makes me want to visit a renaissance fair.

Just ok

The first part of this book was amazing but it slowly went down hill. I really liked the main Character at first but she started getting really whiny towards the end.

4 perfectly sweet Well Met stars

Oh my gosh was this story so adorably sweet.

In my hometown we have a little renaissance faire called the Olde English Fair and I could just picture walking around the park with these characters playing their parts and being amongst them.

Enemies to lovers tropes is one of my favorites to add to the unlikelihood that they are meant to end up together you meet the hot sword fighting kilt wearing hunk first before you meet the nerdy Shakespeare loving English teacher and the reader is just positive the kilt hunk is where it’s at until one too many Shakespeare arguments happen and he just starts pulling at all the right heartstrings.

CUTE, CHARMING & ENJOYABLE FLAVOR

I figured to just read another cute story but it was so much more for me. It was truly cute, charming and very enjoyable read! I, for one, though, love renaissance faire and I do dress when my friends and I go. I was pretty excited to read this book and I didn’t expect it to love it! Simon and Emily embark on a relationship that’s a great banter with one another & the author did quite well of showing a great connection between the pair & for sure, the things they have in common & the ways they complement one another. Someone gave a review that it was never boring or too much and it provided great flavor to the book! BRITTANY PRESSLEY IS SO GREAT AS THE NARRATOR!!! SHE’S GOOD!!!! I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE 2ND BOOK CALLED WELL PLAYED!!!

What a rousing romp through the Faire!

I was delighted by Jen DeLuca's debut novel. I don't normally pick up romance novels, but I read about this one in my "Book Nerd" group and I couldn't wait to check it out. Now I know what I've been missing!

I thought Simon and Emily were very relatable. I've noticed some other reviews where the reviewer felt that Emily backslid from the strong, sassy character she was in the beginning. That tells me that those reviewers don't have a good handle on how anxiety and grief work -- how anxiety sneaks in and takes over just when you're starting to feel like you might finally have your poop in a group. Same goes for how Simon's grief dictated his behavior and emotions.

I alternated between the Kindle version and the Audible version, as I "read" this while traveling. Brittany Pressley knocked it out of the jousting arena with her audio production! I'll definitely look for her narration in future.

So, while I don't read rom-coms too often, I'm a fanatical consumer of Hallmark movies. I couldn't help myself, but as I read, I was writing a screenplay and casting the movie with all of my favorite Hallmark hunks and honeys. Then I got to the steamy parts. I decided to shelve my screenplay, because if the Hallmark execs ever checked out the source material, their chaste and proper eyes might pop out! Oh, well.

I'll definitely look for more from Jen DeLuca in future. I wish her great success. Thanks for a fabulous, fun read!

Well met, Jen. Well met.
