Synopsis from Goodreads: It’s been twelve years since I’ve seen him. Twelve years since he won our war of wits by outsmarting me with a tactic I didn’t even know was allowed. But tonight…I resurrect the battle.


Ryan Henderson is back in town for our best friends’ wedding, and I plan on showing him exactly how much I don’t care about him—or the almost kiss he ruthlessly dangled over me after graduation.


A lot has changed since our feuding days. I'm a successful bakery owner now, and I plan to rub every delicious detail of my life in his ugly face.


Just one problem: his face is gorgeous.


He wasn’t supposed to look like this or pursue me like a sexy guided missile. I must stay strong until the wedding is over and Ryan scurries back into whatever alternate universe he escaped from.


His interest in me is nothing but a continuation of the games we played in high school...right?


But the longer he stays, the more I wonder if I’m wrong and his tender smile and heated attentions are genuine. Maybe it’s not a game.


Ha! Who am I kidding? This is Ryan we’re talking about. Of course it’s a game. A game called war. And this time, I will win


My Review: From the synopsis I really thought this was going to be an enemies to lovers and it was most certainly not. Instead it was a book about two people who were pining for each other the whole time. Wishing the book was something else sort of ruined the it for me. I do think the writing was good and I enjoyed the setting. The narrator also did a fantastic job.
