I bite my tongue, staring him down with the force of twelve years of pent-up hatred. He stares right back, those blue eyes crackling with amusement. Damn him for laughing at me. Still. Elizabeth Logan Miller is single-handedly responsible for ruining my life. Tackling me with the force of a professional football team. Spreading rumors at school. That one thing I won’t mention. E I bite my tongue, staring him down with the force of twelve years of pent-up hatred. He stares right back, those blue eyes crackling with amusement. Damn him for laughing at me. Still. Elizabeth Logan Miller is single-handedly responsible for ruining my life. Tackling me with the force of a professional football team. Spreading rumors at school. That one thing I won’t mention. Ever since the eighth grade I’ve been known as The Panted Lady because of his evil antics. Turns out, twelve years isn’t long enough to get over my hatred for that jerk. And to think, we used to be friends. Those days are long gone. Now that I’m jobless, broke, and living with my terrible match-making mother again, I’ve got nothing better to do than exact revenge on an old enemy. But when Logan has the gall to start flirting with me, you can bet things are about to get messy. Logan Liz Clements is back in town, and she’s just as feisty as I remember her. I’d forgotten how much fun it was to push her buttons. She turns everything into a competition, and I’m never one to turn down a challenge. Especially when that challenge involves a twelve-year-old feud and a woman who fights dirty. But this time, fighting with Liz feels more like fighting for her. Having her back in my life makes everything more interesting, and I don't want to lose her again. If there’s one thing I know about that woman, it’s that she appreciates a good battle. So that’s exactly what I’m going to give her. And then I’m going to do what I should have done all those years ago. Make her mine. Author’s Note: A smoldering hero with a penchant for mischief, a hot-mess heroine looking for trouble, shameless panty jokes, a quirky small town obsessed with relay races, and a whole lot of messing around. This small town is paradise. Beautiful beaches, year-round warm weather and friendly neighbors. There’s only one thing missing—single ladies. It’s Raining Men in Spring, Florida and the lonely residents are hungry to find their soulmates. Some of your favorite instalove authors are bringing you stories set in this fictional town where the men significantly outnumber the ladies.

Except this time around, they both have to admit to themselves that underneath the tension is a fierce attraction. Watching them navigate their explosive chemistry while trying to move on from the past is a highly entertaining read and a wonderful kick-off to to this brand new series!

This one didn’t go on for long and it was clear to each mc pretty early on that they had some deeper feelings for each other, so it turned into a sweeter romance than I was expecting. I will definitely be trying more by this author.

    Frenemies make good lovers 🔥 This is a cute story about two people who can’t quite figure out how or why they have always yearned to push each other’s buttons...since the eighth grade. Elizabeth is back in town after a job gone bad and it’s game on when she meets Logan again, after twelve years. Only what’s the prize they’re competing for this time? This is a fun, fast paced rom-com. I adored Logan and had a bit of a time warming up to Elizabeth, who seemed bitterish. But she has her reasons and Frenemies make good lovers 🔥 This is a cute story about two people who can’t quite figure out how or why they have always yearned to push each other’s buttons...since the eighth grade.

    Nice Great ideas, funny moments, sex moments were Luke warm at best. Overall a ok read. Would have been better had characters been more developed. Did Liz go to school, is she helping Logan with his business. She wanted to be his equal. The story made her seem like her life’s purpose was to marry Logan. It was old fashion and outdated on the moms part to think that what’s best for her daughter is to get married and have babies even if the man in that scenario is 20 years older?!

    I am voluntarily leaving a review after receiving a free copy. I loved the humor in this book. Elizabeth and Logan have been competing for years but it was a cover for their emotions. The two shared pantsing over the years both ends and starts their friendship. They realize that they have loved each other and a year later appropriately Logan proposes after they win the Spring into Spring Competition.

    If I ever find myself in a reading slump I will be giving this a reread. It was fast paced, comedic and the perfect enemies to lovers romance. There wasn’t any ridiculous drama or miscommunication keeping these two apart. I’m pushing through with this series and will definitely be reading more by this author.

    Logan and Liz Absolutely love the first book in the It's Raining Men series. Logan has competed for Liz since they were little kids, and when she returns home their live story is so worth the read. Always a five star read from this author.
