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. (Goodreads)

Well Met by Jen Deluca was another book that has been sitting on my TBR for entirely too long, and I was SO excited to finally read the book. It definitely did not disappoint!

You’ve probably noticed that I have a bit of a rom-com theme going on my blog and with my reading lately. That’s because rom-coms are generally happy, and I need all the happy I can get right now. I’m very much enjoying how these books make me smile and give me all the feels. It’s a nice break from the reality in which we are living at the moment.

And Well Met was JUST the book that I needed at the moment. I love pretty much everything about this book. It has a great cast of characters, all of which I enjoyed. The main character, Emily, was awesome, and I loved watching the relationship between her and Simon, the love interest, grow as the story went along. This story also had some great secondary characters as well, including Emily’s sister and niece, and I’m excited to catch up with them all again in the next book, Well Played!

I also have to say that I LOVE the storyline for this book. I have never been to a renaissance fair before, but this book definitely makes me want to go to one. Jen did a great job with the descriptions for the setting, and I could picture the fair perfectly in my mind. And the storyline for the book was pretty adorable as well. I can’t wait for the next book in the series!

Overall; If you can’t tell by this review, I really, really enjoyed reading Well Met. It made me smile, and took my mind off reality for a while, which was just what I needed. I absolutely can’t wait to get my hands on the next book, Well Played, which is currently set to release this September. I’m so excited for Stacey’s story!
