Well Met by Jen DeLuca
Berkley, 2019


Well Met by Jen DeLuca is thoroughly charming. It’s quirky. It’s original. A delightful debut.

The Renaissance fair backdrop of this story is so much fun. Pirates and wenches. Sword fights and Queen Elizabeth herself. It’s nerdy and sweet in all the best ways.

The relationship between Emily and Simon is definitely a slow burning one. They dislike each other at first, which is a romance thing I LOVE but I did start to wish the story would move a little faster. Once they finally kiss though I was very much ALL IN.

Personal preference here, but I might have enjoyed this story more if the POV was third person instead of first. I would have liked to have been inside Simon’s head. But still.  Well Met‘s nerd-charm off the charts great and I look forward to reading more from Jen DeLuca.

Well Met is scheduled to release September 3rd. Thank you @netgalley and @Berkley for the opportunity to read an advanced copy.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
