REVIEW: Best Frenemies by Max Monroe



* * * * * * * * * *


Going tit for tat with the man you hate is all fun and games until things get literal…and the jerk sees you naked.

My beach getaway was only supposed to include three things: relaxation, wine, and fun in the sun.

Mack Houston, on the other hand, should have never—ever—been involved.

In no uncertain terms, he’s the bane of my existence.

The thorn in my side.

The sexy Mr. Good-Time Guy who drives me up the wall and my work archnemesis for the past five years.

He’s the last person I want to get stuck anywhere with—it’s bad enough that I have to see him every day at work—and yet, because of a booking error (or curse of the universe, as I like to call it), I’m stuck in the same vacation rental with him for an entire week.

I’m going to end up in jail.

Or worse, I might just give in to the insane urge to find out if his lips are really as kissable as they look.

One way or the other, disaster feels imminent.

A fantastic blend of heat and hilarity, Best Frenemies by Max Monroe was a romcom riot that hit all the right notes of the enemies-to-lovers trope. Max Monroe’s writing is sharp, and their ability to balance steamy romance with laugh-out-loud humor is very entertaining. Side-splitting humor and tension-filled romance made for a light-hearted, laughter-filled, love with the last person you’d expect kind of story.

Best Frenemies was full of Max Monroe’s signature witty banter and sizzling chemistry, making for an uproarious journey bursting with snarky one-liners, comedic mishaps and a healthy dose of steamy romance. I loved the enemies-to-lovers dynamic between Mack and Katy, and it totally fed into the slap-stick style humor and kept me furiously tapping my Kindle. If you’re in the mood for a light and breezy, feel-good, steamy romcom, this is the perfect devour-it-in-a-day read. Best Frenemies by Max Monroe gets four smooches from me!
