They used to be friends with benefits for 2 years at college and when he graduated, he just left her and never called her again. This broke her heart.

Years later, they meet again but this time he has a child from another woman. That's a kind of second chance romance I hate.

Firstly, I will never buy their LOVE. If they had been really in love back then, they would have been in a committed relationship, not just f*ck buddies. They had 2 years to decide what they were feeling about each other.

After a hilarious Tequila,Tequila, Frenemies is a disappointment. Usually a second chance romance is one of my favorite trope in romance.

In Frenemies,even the grandma can not save th strory. The story is more about 2 immature characters throwing prank to each other. And acting like 10 years old.

The prank is not even funny. Instead it signify how immature the characters are. I stop listen around 2nd hour of the audiobook.

Frenemies; A friend turned enemy. Imogen and Mason used to be friends with benefits. When college finished Mason never called. Now years later Mason is moving in next door.

Immy lives with her loud mouth gran. She is an artist and loves her job. When she sees her new hot neighbour, Imogen knows there will be trouble. His daughter is cute but he's pranks are old school. With great chemistry and a medalling grandmother, this is about to be one hot mess.

I think it’s these that actually started my reading journey with her work! There’s just something about a pretty cover that gets me every time!

I really enjoyed Frenemies by Emma Hart.

The storyline is well written, it's entertaining from start to end, I laughed, I swooned and then laughed some more and I fell in love with all the characters, especially Grandma Jen, she was a hoot! lol

I loved watching Immy and Mason get their second chance at love. They were funny, passionate and at times frustrating but overall they were two souls who truly belonged together.

Frenemies is one of those books once you start reading you won't want

Nope. Thanks to this review. Hard to root for a h that is so pathetic and desperate. He not only ditched her. But had a child with another. Even if they were just f-buddy, I still don't care for it.

“It was a look I felt everywhere–the kind of look where you just knew not an inch of your body had gone unnoticed.”

Frenemies is the latest romantic comedy from Emma Hart that will have you in stitches laughing one moment, and swooning in the next. Emma Hart really steps it up with this second chance, enemies to lovers story.

Frenemies follows the story of Imogen and Mason. Imogen is pretty happy with the life she leads. She’s a starving artist who runs her families ar

ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review.

Frenemies was a fun and light read. I always enjoy second chance romance novels, and this one was no different. Immy and Mason dated in college and now, 6 years later, they're suddenly neighbours, but there are a whole bunch of new things about them. Namely, Mason has a 3 year old daughter.

I liked the way that this was an easy going read. Whilst there are some old hurts and feelings from the past, and these two snarking at eac

Sooooooo funny! As always! And really I connected to this one because I like that her “frenemy”, Mason, was her FWB from college. I didn’t take a lot of notes as I was reading because this was such a page-turner I just sped through it! It’s a pretty light-hearted story, not a lot of major drama. The feels are real, but not deep. And that’s okay, I like to have a sweet and light and refreshing story to enjoy like this one. I loved that Immy knew how important it was to make sure Mason’s daughter ...more

I know im in the minority here, but the story is just too immature. it feels like i was reading a young adult book for 80%. and the grandma became a bit too annoying for me. Ohh and it was sooo shorT! it felt like it stopped abruptly

Imogen doesn't really have the best timing, "...and I raised my hand to knock on the door right as it opened. Instead of hitting the door, I hit Mason. At least it wasn’t in the face. “Good morning to you, too,” he said dryly..." Me thinks Mason is jealous when his woman's focus isn't just on his balls, “you don’t need the garlic balls. You’ve spent enough time with mine!” I liked this book, Imogen's granny was crazy, Maya was the cutest little girl and I loved Mason. ...more

I'm normally a big fan of this author but this story in particular fell flat for me. This was a lot of surface; not a lot of depth to anyone or anything that actually happens in the book. The grandmother and her gang were a bit over the top for me as well. Everything just felt really stiff and disjointed. I put it down numerous times only to shuffle my way through to a very abrupt ending and an epilogue from a month later. Most likely this is a case of me, not the book, but it felt lacking and r ...more

Note to self: don't read any of Emma Hart's idiotic novels with the most immature characters ever again.
The grandma. Oh GOD. Was she supposed to be entertaining? Cute? Quirky? I don't get it. I hated her character. She was annoying as heck and I wanted to slap her (never thought I'd say that, jeez) for ruining every scene. The main characters were almost 30 and didn't have one single proper conversation like adults. I don't know why I punished myself with this book. Ugh.

This was a cute week story with two characters who are attracted to each other however refuse to admit their feelings. They meet coincidentally after many years and discover the attraction is still there.

This was funny and enjoyable to read. I especially liked the sense of humour from the grandmother. She was the highlight of this book.

5 massive star read.

One of my favourite authors of this genre she always knows how to pull you into a story with her brilliant unique style of writing and addictive characters.

So this is Mason and Imogen's story. This is actually a really hard review for me to write. On Sunday my grandad died and this was the book I was reading when it happened. Afterwards I needed something to keep my brain occupied so I picked up the book and carried on where I left off. Even through my grief the characters m

This might be my new favorite Emma Hart book… it was just so funny and adorable. I am a sucker for the single father trope, as well as friends/enemies to lovers, and this combined them all very well.

Immy and Mason start their new neighbor relationship with an all-out prank war, which was super amusing. It brought back a lot of my own college memories. But to see them grow into friends, then admitting the feelings

Emma Hart is back with a new series. Frenemies is book one and what an introduction to this series! It’s a romantic comedy with prank wars, and a meddling Grandma and I adored this one! It is a standalone that hits on several tropes: second chance, neighbors, frenemies, and single dad. Imogen is living with her crazy Grandma, when the new neighbors move in: her college ex, Mason, with his 3-year-old daughter. You can imagine she’s quite surprised and angry! What ensues is her matchmaking Grandma ...more

Another gem from one of my favourite authors of this genre, a hilarious start to this year! Read on and you won't be disappointed, be prepared to snort, giggle and laugh.

When Imogen finds out that the ex who ghosted her in college moves in next door, not only do sparks fly, but also water balloons and flour bombs. Add to that a very nosey and interfering grandma with no filter and you have the perfect set up for some very funny scena
Not for me ... sadly the grandma and her friends were more enjoyable than the heroine 😂

This was a such a fun read that was filled with great characters, a good dose of crazy and a whole bunch of heart that it made it so easy to get lost in the story that I was quite put out when there were no more words to read.

Mason is a single dad and he parents like no one's biz to his lil girl. He is such a good dad. Imogen and Mason have history.

Emma Hart never seems to fail to write an amazing book! She hooked me in when she said single dad - my kryptonite.

Immy and Mason were two people who used to sleep together in college. Thinking it was something more Immy was shattered when he never called her.

Years later Mason moves in next door to Immy with his daughter. Still holding a grudge Immy doesn't welcome him with open arms, she gets her water balloons filled with flour reading for payback

In true Emma Hart fashion she gave us an absolutely fun, witty and entertaining read from beginning to end! From the very first chapter I was smiling and laughing from Imogene and her grandmother's snarky relationship and banter but the pranks between Immy and Mason....OMGEEE!!! Immy and Mason had a physical relationship in college but fell apart when Mason graduated and left her behind. Neither would admit their feelings for each other but what happens when fate brings them face to face 6 years ...more
