Review: Enemies Abroad by R.S. Grey

R.S. Grey’s next standalone rom-com, Enemies Abroad, is out now! Check it out and be sure to get your copy today!

This was so much fun! The main character is quirky, high strung and has OCD. She works as a middle grade teacher and the teacher right next door is her nemesis. They’ve had a low key feud going on for several years and now they are stuck with each other on a school trip to Italy. This book had lots of fun tropes and cringey scenes that made me smile. It also had quick and over the top banter with an endearing cast of characters that made it hard to stop reading. I read this one in a day, which is not something I manage to do often nowadays. Looking for a fun, shake your head at the shenanigans, romance? Then this book is for you. 🙂

About Enemies Abroad:

It’s simple: Noah Peterson and I are enemies. Our fellow teachers know it, our friends know it—even the Starbucks drive-through lady knows it since every Monday she scrawls the name A. Hole for me on Noah’s cappuccino when I pick up the weekly group order.

The shrill whine of the school bell announces the start of each day’s no-holds-barred grudge match. Since neither of us is looking to get fired or thrown in prison, we war with our words and our wits. We prefer banter that bites. All day, I’m on edge, looking around every corner, expecting him to do his worst. Just when I think I can’t take the sight of his (regretfully) handsome face for one more minute, the school day is done.

Summer usually offers the sweetest relief—a two-month Noah detox—but not this year.

“We need two volunteers to chaperone a group of eighth graders in Rome” becomes a game of chicken neither one of us is willing to lose. We both want that bonus check.

“Back out,” I tell him.

“Scared?” he taunts. 

No one thinks it’s a good idea for us to go to Rome together, least of all me. Taking this battle abroad will only lead to mayhem and misery.

DING. Ladies and gentlemen of flight UA447 with service to Rome, fasten your seatbelts.

We’re bound to have a bumpy ride.

Stephanie Perkins trilogy

“Ah, to be young and feel the bitter sting of love.” – Dumbledore

I love this YA trilogy from Stephanie Perkins. It embodies the feeling of falling in love, to find that one person who’s made for you, your true love. I’m talking about true love, not true crush or serial love-ships, but that individual that you know to your core is the one for you. The thought of leaving doesn’t exist, through rain or shine. It’s the two of you; past, present and future.

Of course these stories are about finding that person, so it’s not all sunshine and cakes. It’s just like human nature – a roller coaster where feelings like fear, insecurities and doubts are in play with the good ones. The characters have to fight to get to terms with them, make mistakes. It’s what makes the relationships stronger. If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m a hopeless romantic. I love happy endings. This trilogy hit all my buttons. Oh yeah, if you like YA and romance, you won’t be disappointed.
