This is a cute novella about two seniors in high school whose animosity for each other land them in detention together. Robin has hated Grayson since he pranked her in front of their class in grade school. She despises him, and he delights in teasing her and egging her on. When they finally stop taking digs at each other, they realize their enemy is actually a person and the ice begins to melt between them. But can Robin trust Grayson, or is he just running a long con on her?
I enjoyed this quick read. The author does a great job building the animosity, and apathy, between the duo. I enjoyed their banter, although it did get excessive at times. I liked Robin and Grayson a lot more once they both chilled out a bit, and started acting a bit more reasonably. I especially liked it when they showed each other their vulnerable side, and when Grayson protects Robin from bullies. There is also a mystery surrounding a vigilante plaguing the police department that provides some interesting teasers toward the end of the book. I look forward to seeing where that leads in the next book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Romance Me With Books and the author. All opinions are my own.
