Publisher's Summary

A new romantic comedy from the Amazon Top 30 best-selling author of IOU.

In my defense, he was wet - and shirtless - and had this really cute birthmark that looked like someone had kissed his ridiculously defined hip bone.

I got sidetracked, okay? It was an accident. Especially when I kissed him so hard my wig shifted sideways, and he realized I was someone else - someone like his enemy. 

Awkward, right? 

So imagine my surprise when Sebastian shows up at my door months later with clenched fists, demanding I pretend to be his girlfriend so he can win a million dollars.

He’s delicious and all, but I trust him about as much as I trust that super-hot dimple he flashes around campus. 

But then he goes and says the magic words: We’ll split the money 50-50.

So here I am, nestled in Sebastian’s arms while two million viewers watch as he leans in, his heart racing under my palm and whispers, “This changes nothing. We’re still at war."

Subscriber Wars is a stand-alone romantic comedy about two internet rivals with a meet-prank and the worst habit of turning fake kisses into real ones.

Fun Enemies to Lovers Rom-Com

Review: I just listened to the audiobook for my 2nd read through by Heather Firth and Connor Crais. Connor definitely stole the show! He may be my new favorite narrator! He did such an amazing job bringing Sebastian's humor to life. I was cracking up. Heather is newer for me, but I thought she did a good job bringing Valentina to life. I really enjoyed this book even more being brought to life by these narrators.

This was my second book by Kristy Marie. It was a cute read with a lot of funny parts. I loved Sebastian from IOU and was so excited for his story. Valencia aka Vee is a college Freshman who would rather stay at home and watch scary movies with popcorn or go to the K9 rescue animal shelter, than go to a party. Sebastian aka Bash*hole is the mysterious funny guy. The guy to always make you laugh and internet famous on MyView with his videos. He is strong willed and won't give up without a fight or a prank in Vee's case. Valencia and Sebastian both became internet famous on MyView. They are most notably known for their prank videos on each other. Something happened between them to turn them from friends into enemies. Desperate to win the campus contest, UniCamFlix on MyView, Sebastian comes up with a plan, what could go wrong pretending to be dating your enemy for the sake of views...This is definitely a slow-burn romance, with banter and funny inner thoughts from the characters. We also get to meet more of Aspen and Bennett, along with his twin Drew. Aspen and Bennett are next. I can't wait for them! Bennett and Drew are protective of Valentina and Aspen and its some of my favorite parts!🤣

Love Bash & Valentina so much!

I gave it 4 stars until I listening to it then I bumped it to 5 stars! Kristy Marie has picked the perfect narrators for Sebastian & Vee. They truly were exactly as I imagined them in my head when I read the book. This is the 2nd audiobook I have listened to by this author and they just keep getting better and better. If you've read the book or not I recommend listening to the audiobook.

Fun and original romcom with a twist!!

This book is a fun, hilarious, sexy and original story that will surprise you in the best of ways! Kristy Marie has yet again created a unique and laugh out loud story with characters who you will fall in love with. The story of Sebastian "Bash" and Valentina "Vee" will pull you in from the first pages and you will be addicted. It is a unique story-telling that leaves you turning the pages faster and faster to find out "the secret" and wondering how this push and pull relationship between them will end up. Needless to say, there are a lot of fun pranks, some anticipated side characters who you will not get enough of and leave you wanting more, cameos from our beloved CiB crew, and sweet, sexy and angsty scenes between Bash & Vee.

I loved every side of Bash-hole...his cocky and confident charming ways to his boyish grin and dimples to his jerky pranks. He is so lovable and deserved his HEA!!! I loved that we saw a deeper side to Bash's insecurities that he tries to hide, and his story reflected the true meaning of family, unconditional love, and chasing after your dreams. Vee is just as feisty as her mom and as compassionate as her dad. I loved every scene she was in...her witty banter, her friendship with Aspen and the guys, and her genuine love and nurturing nature with Bash. She was made to love this guy!!

This book will have you laughing out loud, wanting to play poker with the guys, swooning over Bash and wanting more of every single character in this book!! Vee & Bash were a refreshing read - fun-loving, passionate and oh so real! Bravo Kristy Marie for yet another fabulous and brilliant read! Can't wait for more to come from these characters!

5 When the Pranks Make Me Snort Laugh Stars!

I read this book last year when it was released and as I was looking for an audiobook to give me some laughs this is one of the first audiobooks I thought of because I loved Bash and Vee so much!! I had so much fun listening to this story and I'd forgotten how much I'd laughed at some of their pranks and listening to Ms. Firth and Mr. Crais bring them to life had a huge smile on my face from beginning to end. There were also some touching moments along with some swoon-worthy and fanning myself moments too! I highly recommend this audiobook as it's a great listen especially this time of year while being outside and enjoying the warmer weather!

I absolutely LOVE Bash and Vee! This book from the very beginning had me rolling with the opening scene of Vee breaking into Bash’s apartment for one of her pranks. Their war has reached new levels even for them as this book progresses. Bash and Vee are perfect together… they both know what they want and go after it and that’s to win!!

This book had me rolling with how snarky and sassy these characters were. They’ll go to any length to have their prank be the best one yet. But what this book also has is heart and plenty of heat!! And when Bash and Vee give in to the pull they have towards each other holy moly they’re on fire!!!

This book is full of fun innuendos, poker games that I want to play in and friendship that can be tested at almost every turn. I loved how this book flowed with the flashbacks to prior events which made it a great read because I just wasn’t sure what was coming next.

I adore how Ms. Marie writes her books. She draws us in with wit and fabulous characters making us care about them and gives us a story that in this case, had me snort laughing my way through a lot of chapters. Her humor is phenomenal to come up with some of these pranks!! And let’s not forget about the secondary characters that play some pivotal roles in this story. I for one am on board for all the books she wants to write set in this world!!

Great Listen!

I love Sebastian and Valentina's story. This story sucks you right in from the prologue that had me dying to know what she did that she was apologizing for. Then we are introduced to Valentina and her friends who if you read Kristy's Commander in Briefs Series know these are their kids (Super excited and hope they all get a story). I love the banter between these two. I enjoyed reading as these two struggle between their hate relationship and the lines they cross in their fake relationship. Great story and wonderful characters. As always leaves me wanting more. I've read the story and now I listened to and it was just as great as the first time. The narrators did a great job telling the story.

Subscriber Wars

Kristy Marie knows how to write fun, sassy, and unique characters that draw you into the story from the beginning.

In this case it's Sebastian and Valentina who were one-time friends but now don't get along after pranking each other. To win a competition, though, they have to team up and fake date. Of course, things don't stay fake for very long.

I am a big fan of the Commander in Briefs series and I love that her newest books feature their kids all grown up. Valentina's dad was one of the heroes in the Commander in Briefs series and Sebastian was introduced in the book IOU - which I also highly recommend.

Both Valentina and Sebastian were entertaining characters to read about, especially during the interview scenes that started each chapter.

Subscriber Wars is a great read and I really enjoyed the story and characters. Future couples/books were teased here, too, and I cannot wait to read more!

These two narrators were new to me and perfectly cast! The narration can make or break the audiobook for me and I loved getting to listen to Subscriber Wars this time. I am already looking forward to listening to more of Kristy Marie's books.

Love Sebastian and Vee’s story!

OMG, there is something about Connor Crais’ voice that I fall for. Love him! Heather Firth does a great job for Vee.
I have to say, I actually loved this even more this time with the audiobook than my first read. And I really loved it the first time.

I stand by my original review:
The beginning of the book made me snort out loud. Oh how I knew this was going to be filled of greatness!

I love the Dual POV and the set up for the book is unique and extremely entertaining. It gives you piece by piece of what really is this big complex puzzle that keeps the suspense going and makes you wonder what just happened.
It is different, unique, quite a bit confusing but very fun. At first I wasn’t sure what to think and where the timeline was and honestly this made me curious for more of the story to put it all together. I didn’t want to put this down. The characters of course were great (no surprise there).

I was very excited to see some of the other characters such as Tim, Theo, and Maverick. Tim my absolute favorite from the CiB series, Maverick from the prior book.
I think this can be considered a stand-alone however why miss out on the amazing back stories? I would recommend reading the others too.

Again this was different than I have ever read but it kept me captivated. I was laughing out loud, fanning myself, and swooning. A perfect ending and makes me keep thinking about the whole story long after it is done.
I feel I should read it again to pick up more clues. Enjoyable and a definite re-read in the future.

Absolutely phenomenal !

To say that I love this phenomenal book is such an understatement.
I was so immersed in this witty, romantic, and entertaining story that I found myself watching the sunrise to postpone having to put it down.

This was one of those magical books where every page turn was both a blessing, as the story unfolds and a heartbreak, being one page closer to the end.

As always, Kristy managed to hook me from the first page (or actually from the dedication) with her exception writing, fresh and original story and well developed characters, completely captivating me.

I am waiting with bated breath for Aspen and Bennet's book, and it really can't get here fast enough.

5 stars and a prank

I loved these two crazy pair!.

So Vee is actually Tim and Milah's daughter from the commanders series and just for reference they were my favourite aside from Theo and Anniston. Vee is a hilarious mixture of her fiery mom and her moody unsociable dad. Her crazy snappy clap backs and pinching shenanigans had me roaring with laughter. She just amused me greatly. I also love how her character is all kinds of hard on the outside but once you get to know her more you get to see the sweet nerdy girl who loves her ugly chair and her terrible horror movies and you realise there is so much more to her than her cranky attitude.. which I also love btw.

Sebastian is everything opposite to Vee. But when you jump in you don't see the same wicked bubbly personality you get from him in IOU. Obviously we learn why he's become all kinds of grouchy and short tempered as their story goes on. I loved his wickedness and need to constantly get one up on the girl who finally got the better of the jokester himself. He fought with his emotions throughout and I enjoyed it greatly because the higher you are the harder you fall and lord did he hate to love her is every way.

These two are a hot mess of competitiveness, bickering and banter and it made for a entertaining read. You could feel the connection between them despite animosity and the chemistry building was positively explosive as their story progressed. I just felt they were meant for eachother and I loved that is wasn't easy and they fought it every step of the way. Their crazy antics and teasing had me creased with laughter. I enjoyed the fight to not give in between them but it was clear to see they were it for eachother despite what had happened in the past and their resentment towards one another.

It's a frenemies- friends to lovers romance with a few wacky twists. I laughed and swooned and rooted for them the whole way and I was thoroughly entertained throughout. It's not my favourite from this author but it's still a really good read. I feel like a little bit more backstory in the beginning would've made it easier to connect to the characters straight from the beginning but honestly the more I read the quicker I forgot my trouble in the beginning. Over all I enjoyed it a lot.

Having read the book first and then listened to the audio I feel like I got the beginning so much better this time around. Heather and Connor do a great job of getting the story across in a way that makes it easier to understand the back and forth between the characters. Especially in the beginning where it can easily get confusing. Hearing this book gave me all the feels and I loved how perfect the voices matched the picture I had formed for the characters in my head. Another great read and Listen from Kristy!.
