Stone Reeves was my neighbor, and I’ve hated him since sixth grade.

Gorgeous and charismatic, he became the town’s football god, while I became the town’s invisible girl.
He went to a Division 1 school for football, while my father was fired by his father.
His team won the National Championship, while my mother died the same day.

He was a first round pick for the NFL ...

ENEMIES: Is a full length Sports / New Adult / Romance novel by Tijan.

Like a needle in a haystack an epic read had never been fulfilled until now!! God this book!! As soon as #STONE came into the story I was a goner!! This guy had my heart right from the get go!!


The angst, the drama, the tears, the emotions, the feels they all came at me like a freight train! And all those feel good swoony moments grabbed me by the heart and never let go!!

This book easily went from a read to becoming

It is no secret that I am a huge Tijan fangirl. There are plenty of books by her that I love, but especially theFallen Crest High series, I can read over and over again. The same now goes for this book. It rocked my world and I am sure I will be re-reading this one over and over again in the future as well.

Now, it has been established that I love Tijan's writing style, but do you know what I am also a big fan of? Sport themed books!! So yeah, I really hit the jackpot with this one, because

1 boring/to much drama/tragedies for my taste-dnf

I'm the black sheep here..everyone loves this book but I dnf at 35%. The heroine was annoying and I can't stand her. This girl thinks everyone is judging and hating her. She let mean girls treat her like garbage but at the same time she can be a bratty bitch with the people who wants to help her. I'm not a doctor but I think she suffers from post-traumatic syndrome: she runs from her problems and makes shitty decisions to the point of

This story. Wow. So much to unpack for you.

I don’t know how Tijan does it, but every book I have read by her has me all kinds of wound-up when I’m reading it. If there’s an emotion out there to be felt, I’m FEELING IT! It’s hella scary and very exhilarating. Her voice is unique. In the 20+ years I’ve been reading romance fiction, I’ve never come across an author as consistent as she is. EVERY.SINGLE.TIME!

Some of the paths this story takes are not easy but they’re also not dwelled on as to make

Gah! I absolutely love a good sports romance and with Tijan being one of my favorite authors, I couldn't wait to dive in to this one. And let me tell you... it DID NOT disappoint. Stone Reeves just became my new all-time favorite book boyfriend. He and Dusty made the absolute perfect couple. Stone is a sexy AF football god, and Dusty is a feisty and confident heroine who brings him to his knees.

Dusty has had a rough go at life. She lost her best friend in sixth grade. The two of them were thick

In 2017 when I read Hate to Love You, I said I was done with Tijan.
But then Enemies went live and I couldn't resist.
I don't feel like writing a review. To be honest, I don't think I need to write another review since it feels like I am reading the same ol same ol with a different touch here and there.

So, here's a link from my Hate to Love you review that applies to Enemies.

Jemima jamir aka Sentranced Jem

Title: Enemies

Tijan never lets me down and her latest release, Enemies is another fantastic book!

I finished reading this book within a few hours of it landing on my kindle.
It's been a while since I've been through an absolute book hangover and I admit that after I was done with Enemies, I stopped reading any book. I wasn't even excited to read my other ARCs...I literally didn't want to start another book.

For me, Tijan already had a massive year with her other amazing new book

A solid 4.5 Read for ME!!

I received an ARC for review from the author.

I honestly didn’t know anything about this book going into it other than it was a hate to love/sports romance. So, I absolutely wasn’t ready for all the heartache and angst that Tijan brought in this book.

Enemies is about a girl named Dusty who leaves her hometown her junior year of college to pursue her dreams of becoming a marine biologist in a town in Texas. She doesn’t know anyone there, moving into a house with

Oh look....another overly dramatic heroine who’s life has been one disaster after another and (most likely) manwhore Hero....

Can Tijan write anything else?

This best friends to enemies to lovers story was full of angst, banter, hate sex and sadness. The latter was like a punch to me because I totally wasn't expecting it.

Stone and Dusty were childhood best friends but as they grew older Stone suddenly became distant and eventually moved out to pursuit college and his dreams. As for Dusty, she tries her hardest to survive through high school and college while tragedy keeps hitting home and intensifies her hate for Stone who became an idolized

“Everything that I didn’t want to feel was gone, suffocated by the enormity of him.”

Tijan is officially the book hangover Queen!
Enemies is an emotional roller coaster and I loved every minute of it.
I didn’t sleep or eat so I could finish it.
Stone and Dustys story is a unique and unexpected enemies to love story.
I could not get enough of their love/ hate witty banter.
Dusty has many hardships and I cried for and with her several times.
Stone is headstrong but also loyal and caring.
I loved

I LOVE this book!! Almost everything Tijan writes is gold but this book was even better. Once I started I couldn't put it down. If you love college angst- sexy alpha male. This one is for you. Bravo Tijan, now give me more LOL.

You can find this review of Enemies on my blog, Heart’s Content!

A large shout out and thank you to Social Butterfly PR for including me in the blog tour providing me with an Advanced Reader’s Copy in exchange for an honest review!

I’m pulling a Jerry Maguire and saying “You had me at Tijan.” Tijan is one of my auto-buy authors and there’s barely anything that she writes that I wouldn’t read. When I came across Enemies and I just knew I had to read it. There was really no thinking beyond that.

Enthralled, engrossed, enchanted, I would definitely say Enemies ticked all my boxes and more.

Tijan has given me yet another book, I could not put down and I felt a loss when I reached the end.

Enemies is more than a sports romance, more than a enemies to lovers romance, I was moved, I was invested in the characters, I loved it.

Dusty is a young woman starting college and once upon a time she had a best friend called Stone, they grew up together but through sad circumstances and a fallout

OMG! WOW! This my friends is without a doubt the must-read-romance-book of the year!!!
I have another sleepless night behind me, but damn, this book was worth more then that.
I was so full of adrenaline after reading it, that I couldn't fall asleep later anyway .

Again, Tijan has written a book with so many emotions, grief and heartbreaking feelings that you could feel it deep in your bones.
I could feel the mourning and trauma of the main character so damn deep in my heart , that I was torn

I LOVE Stone Reeves!! Tijan brings out all the feelings with this book!

Stone and Dusty may just be my new favorite Tijan couple! I mean what is not to love about them? A hot AF football hero, and a fiesty, determined heroine who brings him to his knees.

Dusty's life has been full of heartache and lose. She lost her mom to cancer her senior year of high school, she lost her best friend in sixth grade when he thought she was no longer cool. She's had a horrible thing happen to her all because of

I was happy-dancing when I received this ARC because I have been hoping and drooling for this ever since it was announced.

As the title indicates it's an enemies to lovers romance but technically it's a best-friends to enemies to lovers romance.

Dusty and Stone were best-friends growing up then one day during sixth grade, Stone just stopped being friends with her cold turkey... but the details on "why" will come to light as you read along. There were a handful of twists and turns, and all I

Everyone who knows me knows that Tijan is my go to author for kindle crack. Her stories are like magic to me and I can't get enough. Enemies was a fantastic enemies to lovers sports romance and I was completely here for Stone and Dusty.

While I did feel like the writing was a little disjointed and choppy at times, I could not escape the magic that was Stone and Dusty's connection. It was always there and despite years and tragedies between them, it still remained. Dusty was strong and assertive

As always Tijan puts me through an emotional wringer. Enemies hits home a lot. I felt like I was living in Dusty's head. I felt the pain. I felt the disconnection. I felt the numbness. I felt it all. I've been where she is. So I related to her so much. Dusty is one character I'll carry with me everywhere. She's raw. She's real. She's perfectly imperfect and ok with it. She's broken but ready to be put back together again. Of course the one to put her back again just happens to be the one man she ...more

Heart wrenching, beautiful, angsty, steamy, jaw dropping, addictive...I could go on and on with all the things this book is forever. When it comes to Tijan I always expect to be left with a massive book hangover, but I don’t think there is anything to prepare anyone for Enemies. You will be put through the emotional wringer. You will be unable to put this book down. You will be left filled with SO MUCH love that you won’t know what to do with yourself.
Dusty and Stone have one of those stories

FIVE FOOTBALL STARS for Dusty and Stone !!!

To be honest, Tijan is the new author to me.

Yes, I read her a few books but I still feel like someone who needs to read more than four books to be really familiar with her writing.

I love Tijan's writing style.

It's beautiful and it steals your attention at the same time you start reading one of her books.

"Enemies" is a college romance book with enemies to lovers trope.

But, this isn't enemies to lovers book like you use to.

It's much

All. The. Feels.
I was absorbed in the world of Dusty and Stone. Their connection, the hate/love relationship between them. It pulled me in and I was there to stay. I found myself crying more than once reading this book, I smiled, I gasped, it was a whirlwind of emotions. It broke my heart, touched my soul, and had my kindle on fire. I swear I saw steam coming from it. Lol. All of the hurt and pain that Dusty dealt with was so devastating and

Stone is a passionate, alpha man when it comes to his lady, "he strode in. His gaze went to me, and he was growling instantly. “Jesus! She’s freezing.” Stone is a real generous man, “now that we’re all good, right? I can offer my ***k’s services. Happily .” He was smiling..." Stone isn't one for having idiots interrupt his alone time with his woman, "Stone unlocked the door and swung it open in that second. A full scowl on his face." I loved this book, I adored Stone.
