Enemies by Tijan–Review

Tijan for me is one of those ‘crack’ authors. I can never get enough, and I need more. So, when it came time to read all I knew were two things. 1) main characters were enemies and 2) it was a sports ‘romance’. Sometimes, I like to go into a book not expecting anything, it allows a full impression and not jumping ahead in my mind, waiting for something expected to happen.

To be honest, I wasn’t quite feeling the beginning. It was a little stunted/choppy. I’m not sure why, because all the great elements are there, along with Tijan’s unique writing style. I am happy to announce that this feeling didn’t last long, and I was sucked in from that point forward. This is something that I don’t experience a lot considering there are so many phenomenal writers out there.

My favorite Tijan books are the Fallen Crest High series and the spin-offs. They are OUT OF THIS WORLD and re-readable often. Why am I mentioning this, because it’s hard to look at Stone and not think of Mason and Logan. I love Stone. Despite being enemies, he was redeemable in his enemy status and turns into more of a true hero.

Dusty. For me, Dusty was a hard character to vibe with. She has had so much trauma and hardships in her life, it felt like a ‘check off’ list. In the beginning, she is a mess and is trying to get her life together. By the end, she has transformed into a tough and strong character. She achieves this on her own, yet if it wasn’t for Stone and the non-verbal communication that they share, it may have taken Dusty to get there.

If you don’t know me, I am an epilogue whore. I can’t get enough of them. Enemies was blessed with two epilogues and they were ah-maz-ing!!
