Happy Friday my fellow bookworms! We made it to the end of the week and it is now time to soak up some sunshine and relax! This weekend I will be diving into Well Met by Jen Deluca which also happens to be my August Book of the Month pick! I have been seeing this book ALL over #bookstagram and I am so glad to now have it in my possession! What makes it even more special is that this book is not set to release until September 3rd! Not sure what this book is? Well here is a little synopsis from goodreads.
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.
Does this sound like a book that you will pick up on release day? Let me know what you think in the comments!
