Zoey Handler is ready to put an end to her decade-long rivalry with Gordon Meyers. They’ve traded top spot between valedictorian and salutatorian for years, but all that’s over now. Right? But after a crazy graduation speech prank gets out of hand, suddenly their rivalry turns into all-out war. Time to make peace with a little friendly payback. 

Step one? Make him believe they’re now friends. 

Step two? Show him the time of his life at an epic graduation party. 

Step three? Don’t fall for his tricks. 

Step four? Absolutely, positively, do not kiss him again. 

So what if he’s cute? (Okay, hot.) So what if he’s charming? (Heaven help her, tempting.) So what if he apologizes? (That has to be fake.) She knows the real Gordon. And no matter how much her heart begs her to stop, there’s no turning back. 

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains one epic party, complete with every high-schoolers-gone-bad shenanigan, and two rivals who discover maybe they could be something much more…if only they’d stop fighting long enough to notice it.

“Help me out here,” Gordon whispered, his cheek brushing against mine as he spoke in my ear. “I’m blanking.” 
The breath stalled in my lungs with how close he was, and how his soft words sent warm chills across my skin. The notion that he thought I was someone he could ask advice from both thrilled me and made my nerves twist. Or that could be because I could smell him again, which seemed to have a direct line to my crazy-button. Because only an insane girl would be wishing her enemy would keep whispering in her ear like that—he could recite the alphabet for all I cared, as long as he kept talking. 
“Um,” I said, stumbling over my own words. New experience. Not exactly fun. My eyes darted over the faces in the room—completely oblivious to the battle raging inside me, the one that screamed to give in to what I was feeling for Gordon, and the other side reminding me how he’d slayed me this morning. I finally spotted the quarter on the table and remembered how to use my brain. “Any time someone says quarter, they have to drink.” 
Gordon smiled and I felt it in my bones. “Thanks,” he said. “What she said.” He spoke a little louder as he sat up straight again, and I instantly craved the warmth of his nearness.  
I’m in so much trouble. 
I focused solely on the game and on the plan, but my body…my heart…wanted what I couldn’t have.

A misunderstanding leads to revenge that turns into a lover.

A story starts off with two very ambitious human being. Compete with each other throughout anything at school yet they don't really have a true conversation with each other and during the final year, they are competing for a scholarship and an internship place. But both of them has different reasons for why they need the scholarship.

Gordon Meyers - He is a bright student, very competitive yet also a humble person. He lives with his dad and they run a restaurant which almost shutting down thus the scholarship is very important for him to have it.

Zoey Handler - She is also a bright student and very competitive. She always finds that competing with Gordon is something that she enjoys to do but she has no ill-intention towards Gordon. Being a rich student in school, people always talk about her behind her back - not really good things that she would like to hear about. Because of that, she works really hard just to prove to everyone and her dad and that's why she wants the scholarship.

The writing flow is flowing beautifully that makes me stick to read it from start to finish. They are two perspective view from the two main characters that help us to know what they both talk and thinking about each other. I love that kind of a point of view.

I admit that I hate Zoey's character at first. It's like "come on, seriously? Why did you do that?". But as after one to another page, I started to see why she did that and it comes to me that she is quite a nice girl. That being said, Molly E.Lee did a great job that at first makes me hate the character and then, like the character after that.

On the end note, it is light reading with a cute fluffy between the characters which I do enjoy reading it. If you like to read something sweet, light and short, I suggest you should read Love Between Enemies.

The storyline looks sweet! I wonder how they 'fight' against each other. Haha. I was about to ask from which perspective the story is portrayed in this novel (either Zoey or Gordon) and it is nice to read that you mentioned there are both. 😊

It has a happy ending right? Pretty please? Haha I just read a novel with a bit of heartbreaking ending. Sobsss.
