    ARC provided by Berkley Romance 1 Well Met ★★★★ It all started with a necklace When I tell you that Ren Fest romances are maybe a kink of mine I am being completely truthful I grew up going to a renaissance faire in Michigan every summer for my whole life It was always such a magical experience walking through the gate and feeling like I entered a completely new world filled with magic and music and fae and I truly looked forward to it every summer Now I’m much older and I live in a very warm place and you know we have this whole pandemic going on so Well Played was just the perfect romance escape for meThe second book stars Stacey who was the other tavern wench with Emily in book one This book starts out at the end of the faire and we quickly learn about Stacey’s friends with benefits situation she has going on with Dex one of the brother in The Dueling Kilts bandBut with faire season coming to and end and Dex and his band going to the next one Stacey is thrust back into her life where she is a receptionist living in a studio apartment over her parents’ garage After college she had big dreams to move away from her childhood small town and going to New York to pursue her passion for all things fashion but her mother started having health complications and she felt like she was much needed at home with her familyEmily has a lot of exciting things going on after everything that happened in Well Met and Stacey is helping her and her sister April plan many things She is also taking part in both of their separate book clubs which are vastly different and it just really warmed my heart because we love a good bookstore setting too am I right?Stacey is very much feeling the pressure of society’s expectations because she is approaching her later twenties and she is still very much single and very much aware because of social media that her friends who did move away form Willow Creek are starting their lives and even their own families So one night after missing her summer fling a little too much and maybe drinking a little too much wine as well she writes to Dex via the band’s facebook DMs And after waking up slightly mortified she realizes that she received a very nice message back A watched pot never boils and a watched phone never lights up with a text Something like that After this we get to see Stacey live this year of her life corresponding with maybe the love of her life while also prepping so much for the next summer’s Ren Fest But as the dates go by and the anticipations builds and builds she starts questioning a lot of things Somewhat spoiler alert and warning do not be like me get too curious for your own good and look at the cover of this book to see the dude’s hair colorThat’s pretty much all I can say without giving anything else away I will say that I didn’t like how Stacey had to do almost everything even though she is valid I just wish the love interest would have proven himself and his sincerity with his mistakes a lot in every situation Truly Stacey was a bit too good for him in my humble opinion Also I feel like at times Stacey would feel a bit dated or not like she was twenty seven No one that age is PSLs in 2020 I’m so sorry babyBut if you’re looking for a cute romance with some amazing settings and some really swoon worthy banter then I really suggest picking this one up Also Stacey is plus sized and talks about her body image and her journey with her confidence a lot and I really loved that as well Also this has a really great subplot about family expectations and how hard it can be to leave your family especially when you feel like they need you Yet how it is also really important to chase your own dreams and live the life you want to live regardless of how unconventional it may seem to othersOverall this was just such a fun read And I truly believe Jen’s settings are a tier above Also the next book Well Matched is Mitch and April’s book and when I tell you the thought of them together makes me banshee scream with love whewTrigger and Content Warnings talk of loss of a loved one in the past to cancer talk of difficulty conceiving children in the past talk of heart attacks in the past a lot of talk and thoughts of body image anxiety depiction and catfishingFull disclosure I do consider this author my friend so there could be subconscious biases here but this rating this review and these thoughts are honest and my ownBlog | Instagram | Youtube | Ko fi | Spotify | Twitch Buddy read with Amy ❤
