Caroline | 1 comments It's a historical romance where the two characters (M/F) have a love-hate dynamic (but I can't remember whether they grew up together or had met as adults) and nobody suspects their feelings for each other given their past dislike. I think there was one scene where they're in the pantry/kitchen and one pushes the other into a bucket of water. I also remember the girl's father walking in during that scene and laughing at their antics without the slightest inclination that there was something brewing between the two characters. It's a very light-hearted novel with witty dialogues between the protagonists.

Possible authors: Lisa Kleypas, Julia Quinn?? I'm not entirely certain.

Caroline, around what year did you read this book?

What's the time period and location (country, region, big city/small town) of the story?

Families are friends. The H is an annoying little shit... a family trait. Picks on h and she humiliates him and then it flashes forward to adults where H is planing to get away from the still echoing humiliation, and he and she hate each other and start a prank war that brings them together.

It’s a flashback/prequel type book to the origins of the Neighbours from Hell series. The ever eating, ever annoying, hella good looking Bradfords.

No problem. I added a spoiler alert to the topic header.
