Well Met | Jen DeLuca
201 posts | 189 read | 101 to read
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.

How I spent my Sunday. I stayed away from social media and read the whole book in one day. I haven't done that in a few years. It was the perfect light frothy romance I needed and I loved it. I'll be sure to read the next two. Another 329 pages for #NovelNovember for a total of 681 of my 700-page goal. Also #Frenemies for #Booked2021 @Andrew65 @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

Cinfhen Yay!!!! I love to unplug some days!! So glad the book delivered 🥳 5d

Despite this typically being my least favorite genre, I really enjoyed it. Emily moves in with her sister after, her sister has a car accident to help take care of her and her niece. Then to make her niece happy she agrees to join a Renaissance Fair for the summer. Love and chaos ensues also hot guys dressed as pirates or in kilts 💚

Finding love at the Ren Fen was a super easy read, very predictable, and it matched my reading mood …Back in the 80s and the for first three years of my marriage we spent weekends from Labor to Columbus Day in a booth at the KC Ren Fen - and the rest of the year preparing for it. It was fun and our next booth neighbors remain among my closest friends. …And omg my RenFen mugs are 40 years old!

This romance was so sweet. Emily is spending her summer in Willow Creek to help out her sister after a car accident. She ends up having to volunteer in the community's renaissance fair so her niece can also participate. Over the course of the summer Willow Creek turns into home, as she starts having feelings for the ren fair's organizer Simon.

Finally catching up on my July #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Yay!! I enjoyed the sequel as well. I think a third one is coming out soon!! 4mo

Lately I‘ve been finding myself reading a rom-com between fantasy books. They‘re a nice palate cleanser before I dive back into another unknown world, I guess. Well Met was a fun and cute read - from the setting (small town summer renaissance fair) to the characters (Emily and Simon and all their love/hate banter and flirting). The best kind of summer read right here!

So I‘ve been in a contemporary romance kinda mood lately, and I read The Hating Game by Sally Thorne and The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren. They‘re both great, fun reads, but this one I feel is gonna easily become one of my favorites. I‘m only a 2 chapters in and I‘ve already laughed out loud like 3 or 4 times. And I already love the main character, her sense of humor and her love for and protectiveness over her niece.

GloVerdino I love love loved this book! I‘m a little reluctant to read any of her other books though because I don‘t they will be as good as this one 8mo
butterbeerheist @GloVerdino yeah I get that. I felt the same thing with Sally Thorne and Christina Lauren. I thought that maybe if I put some time between their books and the next ones and read something else in the meantime I wouldn‘t feel disappointed if they weren‘t as good 😅 8mo
ravenlee I loved this one so much that when I returned it to the library I immediately bought my own and read it again! Second one was good but I felt it was a slight let-down because the first was amazing. I have high hopes for the third book this fall. 8mo
butterbeerheist @ravenlee thank you now I know the second book won‘t be a major disappointment. And if the writing is as funny and as smooth as the first book than it‘s good enough for me! 8mo
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I enjoyed this one, but never found Simon to be swoon-worthy. I have to read the next one to hold me over until we get Mitch's romance in book 3! ❤ 8mo

This was really cute! Thanks @LiteraryinLititz for lending it! Gave me major drama club flashbacks, for better or worse LOL. I felt badly for how insecure Emily was, and I felt like as a reader I was able to predict all the times she misread things, but I still really enjoyed it! Would totally read other books by DeLuca.

Proud of myself that I finished two books yesterday! I enjoyed this one a lot more than The Switch. This book could easily have been overly cheesy or dramatic, given the Ren Fair setting, but I thought the author did an excellent job of incorporating the theatrical Ren Faire elements without it seeming silly. Also, it was refreshing to see a realistic timeline for the love interests and them finally realizing their feelings for each other.

A lovely, sweet slow burn romance with a side of self discovery. Simon is an intriuging character, I joined the dots on bits of his backstory faster that Emily did but I think that I was meant to. I‘ve never been to a Ren Faire but that‘s not a problem because it‘s so well described that you can really picture it. I am basically assuming all of their “English” accents are as awful as a group of Brits trying to do American accents would be tho!

This was adorable!! The best part was the setting at a local small town renaissance fair!! Something I‘ve always wanted to attend but never have. It‘s a cute little romance with lots of fun characters and a good enough storyline to keep you interested. It‘s not stellar, but it‘s what you‘d expect for this kind of thing 🤗 this audiobook lifted my spirits through a week with lots of overtime work. I will definitely check out the sequels

Loved this book! So cute, Ren Faire, Shakespeare, sort of enemies to lovers. Emily can‘t stand Simon, she thinks he hates her, but when he‘s playing the pirate and she‘s playing a tavern wrench at Ren Faire, sparks fly. There‘s a lot more to it but I don‘t want to spoil anything!

I enjoyed this romance novel but I have to acknowledge a few things upfront. First, it is SO predictable. Every aspect of it. And Emily is oblivious AF - to an unrealistic, almost obnoxious degree. But her faults & insecurities are more than realistic; they‘re familiar. I, along with many readers, I‘m sure, have been there before. I‘ve felt like I wasn‘t good enough. So Emily, former English major Emily, was impossible *not* to root for.👇🏻

monalyisha 1/2: Her initial skepticism of the Ren Faire scene (“Oh god. Was I going to have to yell “huzzah”?) is important, too, to snag readers who might also be feeling reticent about the whole scene. And Simon, English teacher (& summertime Ren Faire pirate, mourning the loss of his charismatic older brother), was just as easy to fall in love with. Except for the silver hoop earring. I could have done without that. 12mo
monalyisha 2/2: Though it‘s not the best romance I‘ve ever read, & the side characters needed more development, I‘d still recommend it. By the end, I was crying freely — not just because of the happy romance but because of the equally important message about self-love, standing up for yourself, & having the courage to change *as well* as put down roots. (Plus, there are some sexy, equal-opportunity oral sex scenes that shouldn‘t be overlooked 😆🤷‍♀️). (edited) 12mo

This was cute. The writing was solid, & the setting was especially great. There were lots of great flirty moments between the two leads, even if the chemistry didn‘t make it to the swoony parts. I liked the main characters well enough, though the narrator‘s insecurities grated a teeny bit towards the end. I think the missing ingredient for me was humor — sure, I smiled here & there, but not enough to make this book memorable or really fun. ★★★☆☆.

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick My problem was that, for some reason, I pictured a few gay actors as Simon. It was hard for me to get passed that and believe their chemistry. I'm waiting for book 3 - Mitch gets a girl! 12mo

Very impatiently awaiting Mitch's story.

4-star rom-com. Fresh out of a relationship with a total douchebag, Emily goes to small-town Maryland to help her sister April and niece Caitlyn after a car accident. Emily ends up volunteering at a local Renaissance Faire used as a fundraiser with Caitlyn. It's there she meets the insufferable & cranky Simon, high school English teacher and main man in charge of the Faire. Once they're in their roles ⬇️

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick of tavern wench and pirate, they start warming up to each other.
I like the setting, but I wish we had more of the Faire and a little more substance. Emily is 24 and spent 5 years with her ex. She stands up for hemswoods and can be assertive, but when it comes to romance she was a bit needy of reassurance. Toward the end, Simon still felt stodgy and a melding of the real Simon & his pirate counterpart would've been nice. ⬇️

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick The other characters all seemed warm & accepting so I'll certainly read book 2 to get more of the Faire (and any morsel of Mitch I can get). #crushtherush

As my August 2019 BOTM pick, it took me some time to get around to reading this one. This initially was a cute and fluffy read with an interesting premise, but I felt that it kind of went downhill after *that* scene. I also was frustrated with Emily with how she thought and acted towards the end of the book. In addition, I found the ending very cheesy, but the epilogue was better done.

I loved the characters and the setting of the Ren Faire. While I knew it was a romance, I didn‘t expect it to be so sexy in a few parts. It kinda ruined the rest of the fun vibe of the book. This is not typically my genre and I only picked it up because of the Ren Faire aspect. It could have left out the explicit parts and been a very cute romance. Also had a few parts where it went on too long. Overall I liked it though. Might read sequel.

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I'm about halfway through. It hasn't gotten sexy yet beyond the banter (and I don't mind sexy times), but the early description of Simon had me picturing a gay actor and now I can't shake it!🤣 (I'm more of a Mitch girl anyway) 1y
katy4peas @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick you will probably not mind the sexy part, but just totally not my thing. Though I‘m getting braver about reading romances! Haha!! You gotta love Mitch! 😁😁🤣 1y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Classic romances have those cheesy euphemisms that just ruin the sexy times and make me laugh. If you get brave enough, this one was a great story and surprisingly sexy without the weird phrases for their parts. 1y
katy4peas @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick thanks! I‘ll take a peek at that one. 👍🏼😁 it does sound cute! (edited) 1y
LiteraryinLawrence I completely agree with you. Those parts make me uncomfortable but I otherwise thought the book was pretty good. 14mo

I love the setting of this book. Visiting a Ren Faire through this story was such an escape, especially when our local one was cancelled this year. The first half of the book was great, & I enjoyed the ending. There was a section that turned VERY SEXY, which I don‘t mind but it felt unnecessary for this story. And in that same section, I felt myself making get angry at the MC bcuz of typical romance self doubt. ⬇️

keys_on_fire Will likely read the second book in the series and may enjoy that better now that I know what to expect. Book bingo board number 3 #superseptemberreadathon 1y
