When Love + Hate Combine: Love Between Enemies (Grad Night #2) by Molly E. Lee, Review + GIVEAWAY

LOVE BETWEEN ENEMIES is like the best kind of book candy read, sweet and too tempting to stop after the first page. Entangled Teen is great at finding these amazing authors like Molly E. Lee that can pen a romance that has a good mix of romance, revenge and misunderstandings that is told between alternating points of view.

I began reading this story and was entertained as main character and lifelong overachievers (and somewhat enemies) Gordon and Zoey come to a turning point when Zoey receives a scholarship that Gordon has been pining for.  They have always been  academically competing against each other, but Gordon believed that Zoey wasn’t competing against him on this scholarship and so it took him by surprise and thus begins this to and fro dance between the duo and it seriously heats up over the last few days of school prior to graduation and the inevitable after party.

As I mentioned, I was entertained by this story and could see how the competitive nature between the two characters never let them become friends due to their rivalry. Yet, that all changes as graduation comes close and it skips from rivalries to romance. At times it seemed a bit over the top going from hate to insta-love but the story flowed quickly and it kept me engaged enough to keep going.

I recommend this story to older teens that like a quick light-hearted read and who enjoy a good enemy to lovers tale.

Publication Date:  January 8, 2018
Publisher:  Entangled: Crus

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.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains one epic party, complete with every high-schoolers-gone-bad shenanigan, and two rivals who discover maybe they could be something much more…if only they’d stop fighting long enough to notice it.
