Amanda's #OMPReads today is WELL MET by Jen DeLuca "Hear ye, hear ye! The time has come for me to announce... I loved this book! With chemistry sharper than a knight's sword and more potent than a tankard of mead, this is the romance for all of you renn-fair nerds out there. Whether you're in it for the sultry pirate or the well-read English teacher with a chip on his shoulder (hint: THEY'RE THE SAME PERSON), you're guaranteed to fall for the hero of this book as hard as the heroine does - and cheer right along with her as she finds her place in this weird and wonderful world. Buy it!"
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.
