Publisher's Summary

Spending time with my nemesis never felt so good. 

Carson Brooks has been my enemy since the day he moved to Sweet Water and tried to drown me in a rogue wave. 

Not only are we enemies, but we're not quiet about it, either. We're polar opposites. Where I'm a perfectionist and methodical in all things, he is carefree and the life of the party. 

While Carson tries to trip me in the halls on a regular basis, I'm busy glaring holes through his disgustingly thick skull. 

Oh, and did I mention I'm best friends with his little brother? Talk about inconvenient.

But it's our senior year, and my life is unraveling. My parents are at each other's throats, I have yet to hear back about early admissions at the college of my choice, and I have no date to the Snowflake Ball. So, when Carson whacks me in the face with a basketball during gym class, I snap. I go for his throat - literally.

Now, Sweet Water's principal is giving us a choice: face suspension or find a way to work together on the holiday Angel Project. Great. As if living in a war zone weren't enough, now I have to spend time with the enemy.

But as tensions rise and we begin spending time together, I realize there's more to Carson Brooks than his cocky exterior. Maybe, I like him more than I thought. Maybe, a little too much.

Enemies to love

A great book about finding love in unexpected ways. First time author for me and I’m definitely going to read more of her books. Narrator was awesome.

Loved It!

YA isn't my usual choice to read. I'm so glad that I listened to this though. I'm going to look for some more in this series. This was a good story and I really lines the narrator, too

Entertaining YA enemies-to-lovers romance

The enemies-to-lovers trope is one of the toughest ones for an author to pull off. Typically, one or both of the main characters ends up being too unlikeable to fully redeem for readers.

This one is better than average. It does well enough to succeed with all the happy, warm fuzzy feels. The author does a good job of building their relationship over a relatively short period of time. And their encounters are amusing.

Carson did do some fairly obnoxious stuff, though, and is too old for some of the crap he pulls on poor Mia, especially knowing she's going through hades. My heart really went out to her towards the end. When she finally starts speaking out for herself, I was so with her.

The author writes it all so well, that it's really only after reflecting on it after finishing the book that those points kinda bugged me. So... not perfect, but I still liked it a lot and it still did well enough to be absolutely worth the read/listen.

*Clean romance level: passionate kisses
*Religion: secular, takes the Lord's Name in vain once, sadly & unnecessarily, but at least not as a curse

[The narrator reads naturally, and does a great job with making the different characters' voices appropriate as well as distinguishable]

Fun!

Mia and Carson have a sweet magnetism that is as flirty as it is antagonistic. When Carson pings Mia in the eye with a basketball, her throat-rushing response probably has more to do with the other stress factors in her life, than the stinging pain of a blooming black eye. When they are sentenced to work together on getting donations to provide Christmas presents to underprivileged families, they may find that there is more than meets the eye and the strained relationship between them.

Great YA romance

I really enjoyed this friends-to-lovers sweet YA romance. It’s book 6 in the Sweet Water High series, but is a stand-alone, and worth the listen! The characters were well-written with a lot of chemistry between Carson and Mia. Penelope Graham was the perfect voice for these teenagers. Well done.

Perfection. Loved it.

Falling for my nemesis was what I needed. I've been reading outside the YA genre of late and this book reminded me why it's my favourite.

Mia is best friends with Ethan. He's a little younger than her but their friendship works perfectly. Except for one detail. His older brother, Carson.

Carson and Mia have been enemies since he moved to Sweet water. When an incident at school throws the pair together, the reasons Mia hates him so much don't seem as obvious. He's actually being pretty decent. After a few confessions at a party, Mia is questioning everything she thought was true.

I really enjoyed this audiobook. The narrator was great. Mia's back story adds an extra level to the tale and Ethan was a great best friend.

I won this in a competition with no obligation to review. It's also available on KU.
