Love Between Enemies by Molly E. Lee is the second book in the young adult contemporary romance Grad Night series. Each book in the series features a new couple and can be read as a standalone. The idea of the series is at the end of high school there is a big party setting up a last chance at romance between two graduates.

In this book Zoey and Gordon are the top two overachievers at their school and have been battling out each milestone in their academic careers for years. It’s always been a fr

Thank you, Entangled Teen!

After reading and loving the first book in this series, I was anxious to get my hands on this!

With one of my favorite romantic tropes, Love Between Enemies shares a parallel timeline with Love in the Friend Zone. Like the first book, the story of Gordon and Zoey start at graduation day and stretches into the grad party, where we get most of the interactions between the two main characters.

I know not everyone is a fan of this for

Two rivals. Both ambitious and have similar goals.

Gordon Meyers studies hard and tries his best to be top of his class.
Zoey Handler is his biggest rival. They both want to be the best, but their motives differ.
Gordon lives with his dad. They own a store and are struggling to make ends meet. A full-ride scholarship to cover his education would take the pressure off.

Zoey is a rich girl and her dad wants to give her everything. He wants her to follow in his footsteps and learn the family busine

I picked it up literally because of the title, I thought it was going to be a hate-to-love type story. and it wasn't this needs to be renamed, "Biggest Miscommunication & Awful Revenge Ever"

This story is literally a story of 24 hours. The whole book takes place in a 24 hour period, yes I know I repeated myself.

I was bored with the characters, annoyed at the miscommunication and then when someone apologizes and you have the whole story the other one just continues with the revenge

"All is fair in love and war."

Enemies to lovers are some of my favorite troupes and I enjoyed this one a lot.
I would prefer a bit more of angst, but I do realise this is a story for teens. Mollys books are a perfect pick for moms who gets asked by they daughters for their first romance book.

** ARC provided by the author for an honest review **

High school: the cliques, the pranks and the misconceptions of your peers. Molly E. Lee has captured the high school experience and turned it into a YA/NA series aptly named Grad Night. The characters go behind the illusions and discover themselves along with just how wrongly they have misjudged others. Love Between Enemies takes the biggest rivals at the school and strips away the falsities to show just how alike they really are.

Love Between Enemies is the second book in Molly's Grad Night series. Every book is standalone within the series. You do not need to read any of the others to follow along as there is no subplot throughout the books.

I am a huge fan of YA books - I enjoy reading them and I usually breeze through them within a day or two (depending on my schedule). But this one, I actually struggled to read and continue on with it. I ended up reading two books before I went back to finish this one and still had a

The second book in the Grad Night series, I loved how this one overlapped the first book and kept that feel - like you're in the middle of an old school teenage romcom with all the expected mishaps, laughs, zany antics, and swoons.

Unfortunately, it took me a long time to warm up to this book. I think part of the problem is that enemies-to-lovers is a very tricky trope for me and is the trope I most consistently fail to connect with. I spent a good portion of the beginning of this book annoyed wi

I LOVE a good enemies to more romance and wanted to love this one. However, I had some difficulty feeling Zoe and Gordons’ story. I didn’t feel their chemistry until the end. While I enjoyed the plot, I couldn’t connect to the story or the characters. I needed more dialogue between them and more writing about how they affected each other. I wanted to see and feel those sparks that should have been present in this story.

The EntangledTeen Crush line is like a box of chocolates, in my opinion. Each books is temptingly sweet and incredibly hard to resist. Thankfully, Molly E. Lee's Love Between Enemies follows this trend perfectly. Taking place over twenty-four hours, Love Between Enemies deliciously blends together revenge, romance, and a series of mixed signals.

Love Between Enemies introduces Gordon and Zoey, two graduating seniors hoping to finally put their complicated, long-lasting rivalry to bed.

Zoey and Gordon were everything I wanted from this book. High school competitors over grades (and everything else) with sparks and lies and tricks and epic kisses... Loved it!

I'm always up for reading antagonistic love stories. I'm a sucker for those kinds of books, so you can imagine how thrilled I was when I got this book and read it's summary. I was quick to dive into Love Between Enemies and mostly enjoyed the book.

Both have an ongoing rivalry going on from childhood. Heroine is rich. Hero is not. Both are kind of immature. So when the heroine decides to finally end the rivalry something goes wrong. Misunderstandings...Drama...Love...!!!

Love Between Enemies is one of those reads that practically turns the pages for you--it's that readable. The whole book (with the exception of a tiny prologue) takes place in a single day--the bulk of it during the evening, at their graduation party--hence the title. It occurs simultaneously with books one and three in the series ( Love in the Friend Zone and the as-yet unnamed book featuring Lennon and Jade) and though you get tiny glimpses into the drama that is going on with the other coup ...more

This was a really quick read and considering the entire story takes place in one night, it kind of made sense. I'm going to have to think on my review for this one because on one hand, I absolutely adored Gordon. He saved this story for me. Had it not been for him, I probably would have DNF'd this one once I realized what Zoey's plan was and that brings me to the reason I almost walked away from this book. Zoey. Her privilege, her thinking, her every breath pissed me off and even at the end when ...more

I’m on the fence with this book. On one hand it was a light, easy read that I read in one go. On the other hand the story was all a bit ridiculous and over the top.

I liked the interchanging points of view of Zoey and Gordon, it gave us a nice insight to them both. However their relationship came out of nowhere, they went from frenemies to really hating each other to being in love all in the same night. This story was insta-love to the max and I found that factor a bit cringey. I wouldn’t have m

Gordon and Zoey have been in competition with each other since they were young kids. They both make judgment and assessments of each other without knowing the full story or background. Gordon is a hard working student with a heart of gold!! I loved him and his hard work ethic. Zoey surprised me as well as she wasn’t your typical rich kid and worked twice as hard to prove everyone wrong.

I’ve never read anything by this author and this was a cute read. At first I thought it was going to be your t

After reading a serious mystery thriller, I had been in search of a sweet YA (,because it's my comfort genre, if that's even a term!) novel and though this was far from sweet -until the very ending- it did the job pretty well.

The story spans twenty-four hours, a single day, that changes the lives of Zoey and Gordon.

One misunderstood conversation leads to a day full of destruction, hurt, revenge plans and broken dreams.

But the story ends on a positive note, and that's what made me raise up the ra

Another super cute YA from Molly E Lee! I love YA and this series is no exception. It's so awesome that there are so many different stories happening at the same time and overlapping with one another. I will admit, I didn't love this story as much as the first, but it was still really good. I fell hard and fast for Gordon, but it took me a bit to really like Zoey. I understand Zoey had her own personal struggles that she kept to herself, but doing so made it hard for me to care for her. I still ...more

3.5 stars — This one started off fantastically and ended leaving me super duper happy… It was just the middle that stretched a bit more than I’d like. Basically the book suffered from some similar pitfalls, or rather things that bothered me, as the first book in this series; I think I just had slightly less patience than I did for the first one.

Well, this one, although not horrible, was definitely yawn inducing. In the beginning I was engaged and then all the thrill and the character development as well as the writing went downhill. The chapters that detailled the grad party were boring and quite frankly there was so much name dropping out of nowhere that I just couldn't keep up and I also di

Days away from graduation, the years of fierce competitions and challenges are coming to close especially with this big internship both Zoey and Gordon. These two have been enemies since elementary, but when bad news of his father's shop is closed, a botched grad speech, a revenge plan, stolen keys, a couple of drinking games later, and an eye-opening kiss later; these two are in for a rollercoaster of feelings.

I really love these two! Despite always being against one another their entire lives;

A special thank you goes out to Entangled Teen for allowing me to read this early. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

3.5 stars.

Please note: even though this says #2 of the Grad Night series, you can read this as a standalone.

This was such a fun book, even though I struggled to rate it. I felt 4 stars was too much but 3 stars was too low. It took my favorite trope, the friends to lovers trope, and reworked it into something that was totally different but still the same trope I know and lov
