WELL MET – JEN DELUCA
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.
It’s official. My friends no longer recognize me! I’m a light, sweet, fluffy loving ball of mush! I blame it on Katherine Center! Lolol Anywhoo! Well Met is all those things. Light, sweet, fun, and fluffy! Therefore, TJ 2.0 lurved it! lol
Simon and Emily are the cutest!!! Gah! I’m in love with this fun and witty romance. Jen Deluca is a new to me author and I can’t wait to read more from her. The combination of an emotional storyline and witty banter between two characters who rub each the wrong way is my catnip.
Emily is unsure of herself. She’s trying to find her place and reconcile her past and future. She’s sweet loving and selfless. Her life pretty much revolves around taking care of her sister and niece. Hoping to find her place and belong somewhere or to someone who really cares about her, she ends up becoming very involved in the goings on of the small town.
Simon was a great character. He’s a bit lost and also needs to find himself. Both of these character were lost in the beginning, but thankfully found themselves and make the changes necessary to live their best lives.
Ren Faire was freaking amazing. I want to visit one. I can already imagine the looks of horror on my family’s face when I hit them with this news. Lolol
Overall, the book is witty, sexy and full of great banter. I highly recommend it!
