This was a compelling and humorous enemies to lovers romance with intricate and complex characters and witty banter.
On its face this is a classic enemies to lovers romance between two childhood enemies but it was so much more; there was so much going beyond the surface. Macon had a painful past that I was not expecting that shined a light on who he was and why he acted the way he did. This was a story about letting old hurts go, personal growth, and realizing that perception is not reality and that you don’t always know what is going on in someone’s life. I don’t want to give any spoilers into the story, but I completely swooned over Mason, especially during one particular moment when he reveals something to Delilah about their past.
Let me just say that the one blight on this story is Sam, Delilah’s sister. She is absolutely horrible, to both Mason and Delilah. Her actions were kind of necessary because they were the catalyst to the storyline between our hero and heroine but it was a bit frustrating that Delilah repeatedly covered for her sister and wasn’t forcing her to face the consequences of her actions. I kind of expected there to be some sort of redemption for Sam in the long run that would make some of Delilah’s actions sort of worth it but that didn’t really happen.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book; it was was a steamy, humorous, and heartwarming romance.
