Title: Rule #2: You Can’t Crush on Your Sworn Enemy
Author: Anne-Marie Meyer
Series: The Rules of Love #2
He was my enemy, but my heart had other ideas.
I live by three rules.
One: I never get lower than an A in any class.
Two: I never lose a cross-country race.
And Three: I never talk to Cade Kelley
Well, number three came crashing down the moment Principal Connell asks me to guide Cade back onto the right path. Something about helping him turn his life around. If only Principal Connell knew our history, he’d understand just what he’s asking.
But, I have an incessant need to please all adults, so of course I say yes.
When Cade seems pleased as well, I can’t help but wonder if this is part of some scheme. A plan he’s worked up to finish me once and for all. Apparently, what he did in junior high wasn’t enough.
Just when I think I have everything figured out, my life spirals out of control. Suddenly, adults suck—especially parents—and pleasing them becomes the last thing I want to do. What confuses me even more is in the moment I choose to run away, the first person I go to is the one guy I swore I would never get close to.
Hopefully, the Cade I’ve uncovered won’t hurt me because I’m so close to breaking.
He was the bad boy. She was the good girl. They were enemies. Or so they thought…
What I like about this series is that, yes, they are cliche, but I love the idea of it. The ‘rules of love’ is such a fun idea to put into a series.
I honestly enjoyed this story so much and even though it may be thought of as cliche, I still really liked it. This book was in some ways similar to the first book, but it also had a completely different turn to it.
I loved how the story developed and was even surprised that I got a few butterflies from this which is always a good sign for me.
I recommend this book to anyone looking for a cute contemporary romance who loves books like this! Once again, this was a fun book to read and I of course read it so quickly and I know I’m going to enjoy the next few books in this series.
