  • Pure Perfection!

    There are sooooooo many things I want to say about Well begin, I’m just going to say....GRAB THIS BOOK NOW!!!! I absolutely loved Emily’s character; we all have been in her shoes in some way or another.....she rose above everything and became such an inspiration!!!! Simon....oh Simon....he is welcome to woo me anytime!!!! The supporting characters had so much depth to them....they certainly added to my joy of reading!! I was texting my girlfriend and told her how I loved “Emma” and “Ian”’s connection I am blown away at how this could be Ms. DeLuca’s first novel!!! I just want to read more of her words!!! Annnnndddddd......I want to attend the Renn Faire now!!!! I’m going to end with a few of my fav quotes: “Above you are the stars and below you is the earth” “When I woo you, you’ll know it” “But then you came along, Emily, and you weren’t a should. You were a want.” Swwwwwwoooooonnnnnnnnn😍

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great story with wonderful characters

    Emily Parker's life is in turmoil since her boyfriend dumped her after she put him through law school. So with no where to live Emily decided to move to Willow Creek, Maryland from Boston, MA to help take care of her sister April and niece Caitlyn while April is recovering from a bad car accident. While Emily doesn't mind being the cook and chauffeur, she didn't expect to get dragged into volunteering to be in the Willow Creek Renaissance Faire that runs the entire summer, but since Catilyn really wants to do it she agrees. At auditions Emily meets Stacey Lindholm and together they volunteer to be the bar wenches. She also meets Mitch Malone, the good looking gym teacher, Christine Donovan, a local book store owner and Simon Graham, the grouchy and stiff English teacher who is organizing the faire. Emily and Simon do not hit it off at first but Emily slowly sees sides to Simon that intrigue her. Whenever he is in his pirate costume he is a sexy, flirty person that Emily enjoys being around. As these two spend more time together their attraction to each other is fun to watch. Both of these two have issues from their pasts that is making it harder to move forward in their lives. Just when it looks like Emily and Simon are going to get their happy ending, the past comes back to haunt them. Some really tough decisions need to be made by both of these two if they ever want to get their happy ever after! I really enjoyed this story. Emily is such a strong woman but at the same time she has such low self esteem when it comes to relationships. Simon is the perfect catch on paper but he has some demons in his past that he needs to overcome before he can ever find his happy ending. Together they balanced each other well and I just adored their happy ending that they did finally get. I also really loved the supporting cast...especially Mitch....he brought some fun humor to the story. Overall this was a great story with wonderful characters and I would highly recommend it!

  • Cute and Sweet Debut

    3.5 - 4 stars This was a really cute and sweet read. It had a nice enemies to lovers vibe, but also stressed the importance of putting yourself first and knowing your worth. It started a bit slowly for me, but I loved the Renaissance Faire backdrop and small town location. I had no idea how much work and preparation went into putting on this kind of event. Though very interesting, sometimes I found myself overwhelmed by all the details and descriptions of the Faire itself. I would have loved to have more time spent with the colorful cast of characters interacting in the space with each other. I liked Emily and Simon, but I'm not sure I really felt the connection that got them from point A to B. Things were very sweet between them once it all came together (the wooing!), but I think a little more time in the enemies zone would have built up more tension and anticipation for me. I really enjoyed them as Emma and Captain Blackthorne though, and those interactions really made me smile and swoon. I appreciated how family dynamics, sibling relationships, and familial/societal obligations were explored in this book. The difference between doing something you think you should do versus something you choose to do. The ending and epilogue were adorable and left me with a goofy grin on my face. Well Met had some emotional surprises I wasn't expecting, but I really enjoyed this debut novel by Jen DeLuca. I'm hoping we see stories for Stacey and April (maybe with Kilty ;)) in the future. *I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book*

  • delectable story

    Disclaimer: Penguin Random House International has given me an e-copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine and mine alone. A delectable story with an entertaining hate to love relationship trope, Well Met offers a delightful ride for the people who wants to have butterflies in their stomach whilst also enjoying the thrill of annoyance with every bit of the process. Jen DeLuca did great in writing this novel. Her pacing is quick with just the right amount of slowing down to perfect the process of falling in love. The insertion of the sex scene was brilliantly done as well. It wasn’t cringe-worthy like any other typical romance novel out there. Overall, this was a fun and fast read. It is highly entertaining and the flow of the story is neatly done.

    Thanks for your feedback!
