Ellie Ryder thought she knew what she wanted in life. She had the career she wanted. And the man she’s been dating for the past two years checked off all the boxes. Until he dumped her on Christmas Eve. Not wanting to be alone at her own place, she goes to her parents home and who does she ...more
He is just out of a nasty divorce.
She is just dumped by her boyfriend.
He is her brother's best friend who always annoyed her.
They are at her parents' house - alone.
She takes of her clothes and basically attacks him.
He tells her to stop but she doesn't. So he can't stop himself.
And they have sex.
Then he says they shouldn't have done that.
She runs out of the house, pissed at him and has a car accident.
6 months later, she is going to a wedding and he will fake as her boyfriend b ...more
It's here!! It's HERE!!! And now the world can see Wyatt and his #bookboyfriendgoals, and Ellie and her vulnerability and strength, and the Long Beak Silver and his foul mouth, and have I mentioned the pirate-obsessed best friend/bride? Because if she hadn't demanded a pirate-themed wedding, Shipwreck wouldn't exist, and I kinda love Shipwreck more than I probably should... (and yes, the characters totally boss me around, even though I know I shouldn't let them, bu ...more
It's just SILLY!
MCs have been friends since childhood. Always upped one on each other, teased each other. Then they grew up and grew hot. Finally, after her breakup and his divorce, they have a shot at each other.
The rest of it is just plain SILLY!!!! This is where I'm reminded of DNF'ing the first book I attempted to read by this author , the highest rated of all her books thus far. And I coul ...more
Pippa Grant is one of those author's that I have a hit-or-miss relationship with. I either like the craziness of the characters/story or I think the humor is too OTT. Sadly, this one was a miss for me. I didn't laugh at scenes that were supposed to be funny. And ...more
Ellie and Wyatt have a crazy history. They practically grew up together, and have consistently annoyed the heck out of each other for years. Their relationship has been to goad and cajole and generally find fault with whatever the other is doing. And that worked for them for years. Until it didn't.
Until they finally realized what they were feeling for each other wasn't annoyance at all, it was actually somet ...more
But Grant gives us that irrational thing some writers saddle the ...more
I started reading Flirting with the Frenemy a little hesitantly. I have read one Pippa Grant story before and while I didn't hate it, I did have some problems with it. I think you have to be in the right mood for stories like this one, and I obviously was in the perfect mood today. I read it in one day and I haven't done that in donkey's years. I was sucked into the dynamics of this couple, the storyline kept me entertained from beginning to end, and the a ...more
There are too many funny scenarios in this book from the bubble bath scene to the wedding. Wyatt’s son is too funny and of course as a kid doesn’t even realize it.
Ellie was wonderful. She went through so much but yet she was a fighter.
“I don’t have enough fingers to count the number of times I’ve heard someone say Ellie’s annoying, or god knows, the number of time ...more
This book is a meld between a enemies to lovers, brother’s best-friend and single dad tropes. It was a cute standalone read, and there wer ...more
Ares, I love you boo, I always will, but this book has pirates. PIRATES!!!!!!!
I WILL NEVER NOT LOVE PIRATES!!!
Black Sails ,
Captain Hook from Once Upon a Time ,
Pirates of the Caribbean , just give. Me. PIRATES!!!!! Talk Like a Pirate Day is one of my favourite things. I used to make a joke about answering the phone at work with my growly "Arrrrrrrrrr" in p ...more
Before I picked up this book I heard rumors that other readers were saying that Wyatt was replacing Ares as their favorite Pippa Grant Hero. My immediate reaction was NO WAY!! Well, I just finished this book and it sort of pains me to admit that it might just be true for me too!
I will ALWAYS, ALWAYS love Ares but, man, Pippa really brought it when she wrote Wyatt.
Sexy military man ✔️
Single, AMAZING dad ✔️
Great friend ✔️
I mean, what’s not to like?
However, it’s the banter, ...more
The title says is all. It is as promised, a Frenemies to lovers book. Add in Best Friend's little sister and there is bound to be some tension. Loved the whole thing!
Wyatt and Ellie have a long history having grown up together. They have always bickered and tried to one up each other. Apparently, everyone but them say it for what it was---foreplay. The chemistry is off the charts with these two. They know each other so well, I really think that is what finally sealed the deal for Ell ...more
I saw a snippet of this book and thought it looked good enough to try it since I was in the mood for something lighthearted, also not realizing I have read this author before, and I have the same problems with this book that I've had with her other ones. The slapstick, not funny humor, pretty much.
The blurb sounded decent, but that's pretty much the only good thing about the book. The humor was cheesy and trying too hard, making it more annoying than being close to funny. The ...more
Other than that, the characters and story are meh. It's the execution here more than anything that takes a standard trope that people love and makes it into something unenjoyable for me. The female lead is OTT clumsy, the people in Shipwreck are OTT ridiculous, and the male lead is OTT as well. Everyone feels like caricatures, not people, and that makes it hard to relate to them or a ...more
It was cute. It's what I expect from Pippa Grant, though it's more middle of the road for me than some of her other books. It was cute, though the humor will not work for everyone. It's set in the same 'verse as her other books, so you'll recognize some characters if you've read her books, but you won't need to read them. It's got some of the standard flaws as well, so it's cute but it's not a standout. But I think if you usually like Pippa Grant's writing, you'll probably enjoy this.

This is the brilliant beginning of a series by this author and it is told by Ellie and by Wyatt as they navigate the waters six months after having one night together, before Ellie got into a massive car crash that has changed her life around.
Wyatt is one of her brothers best friends and also the man that Ellie has been fighting with for as long as she can remember. With her best friend getting married in a crazy t ...more
At this point after having read all the books from Mr. McHottie to Charming as Puck I thought I knew what to expect from Pippa Grant. But Flirting with the Frenemy surprised me. And Not always in a good way. This book starts out a little darker than all the other books of her’s I’ve read. Ellie our heroine has been dumped by her long time boyfriend two days before Christmas. Wyatt her older brother Beck’s best friend has just received his divorce papers and has had to accept the fact that ...more
“Ellie Ryder and me?
We mix as well as water and lava.”
The books get crazier and crazier and I love every minute of it. Flirting with the Frenemy is so hilarious and addictive that there was never a dull moment. After all the heavy books that I have been reading, this was the perfect remedy. It made me feel light and free. It was exhilarating.
Ellie and Wyatt have never gotten along from the time they met. He was her brother’s best friend from childhood. Fast forward many years and they s ...more
This was such a great read! It was a light and hilarious book with some ama,ing characters. The bad luck these two had was epic and so crazy but it's what made This book what is was. The ending wasn't quite a cliffhanger but it was just a tease and now I have to read becks story to see what the heck is going on!
I loved all the characters in this, the friendships between Monica and Ellie, and all the boys who would do anything for each other. Tucker was a scene-stealer, such a cutie. Ellie and Wyatt were inevitable and their banter and trading of insults was just a way of first masking their attraction, but in the end their feelings. They were perfect for each other, even though Ellie thinks the universe ...more

Flirting With the Frenemy was a nice enjoyable read.
When Wyatt went to live with his grandma he made a lot of new friends around the neighbourood.His best friend's little sister always wanted to play with them and in the end he always found himself bickering with the girl.
Now after so many years their relationship is still complicated,they are not friends nor enemies and maybe they are only deceiving themselves about their real feelings for each other.
I liked Ellie and Wyatt since the beginning
