DJ gets the mix just right between light-hearted banter and collage age angst

Matched COVERMatched By My Rival by D.J. Jamison

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

This is fab, it’s just the right kind of mix between light-hearted college age banter and that feeling when you know your life is changing forever.

It’s also a brilliant enemies to frenemies to lovers romance that works through all the stages at an excellent pace and never feels rushed.

Simon and Parker are both distinct characters with unique voices and I loved how DJ had them almost mirroring each other’s expectations of where they thought the other one’s life was going.

It’s also hot, one of the hottest books that DJ has written imho because even from the off, its more than just the lust of getting off.

They’ve had a connection from the start, even when Simon was drunkenly punching Parker after he thought he was stealing his girlfriend.

The hookup app trope that’s connecting all thus series together works really well too, as they get to know each other through anonymous conversations.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and make sure you grab the deleted scene too because that’s smoking too!
