Emily knew there would be strings attached when she relocated to the small town of Willow Creek, Maryland, for the summer to help her sister recover from an accident, but who could anticipate getting roped into volunteering for the local Renaissance Faire alongside her teenaged niece? Or that the irritating and inscrutable schoolteacher in charge of the volunteers would be so annoying that she finds it impossible to stop thinking about him? The faire is Simon's family legacy and from the start he makes clear he doesn't have time for Emily's lighthearted approach to life, her oddball Shakespeare conspiracy theories, or her endless suggestions for new acts to shake things up. Yet on the faire grounds he becomes a different person, flirting freely with Emily when she's in her revealing wench's costume. But is this attraction real, or just part of the characters they're portraying? This summer was only ever supposed to be a pit stop on the way to somewhere else for Emily, but soon she can't seem to shake the fantasy of establishing something more with Simon or a permanent home of her own in Willow Creek.… (més)

This is definitely a classic enemies-to-lovers contemporary romance and that's exactly what I was looking for. I loved the fact that the story involved the Renaissance fair, which made it a fun read. I enjoy contemporary romances with a strong female leads that don't necessarily need a man and I felt like Emily fit that description. In general, Emily's personality and story was fairly relatable. The only problem I had with this book was that the ending felt rushed. Normally these novels include some sort of conflict that leaves the reader wondering how the story could possibly end, even though they traditionally have positive endings. This book's conflict-resolution sequence was really saved until the very end, which didn't leave much suspense for the reader. Besides that, I really enjoyed this book and it is definitely one of my favorite contemporary romance books. I highly recommend this book to my fellow romance lovers and to my fellow nerds who have dreamed of falling in love with a pirate at the Ren fair. ( )

Emily has just been dumped by her high powered lawyer boyfriend, whom she had supported through law school, so when her sister April shatters her leg in a car accident, Emily packs up her life and goes to stay with her in the small town of Willow Creek, Maryland. April's daughter, Caitlin, wants to participate in the local Renaissance faire, but Emily is told that since Caitlin is underage, she must have an adult participate with her. Emily sees no choice but to join in, even though, Simon, one of the organizers, makes it seem as though she can do nothing right. The animosity between Emily and Simon grows until the time for the faire nears when Emily starts to see that there is another side to Simon.

Well Met is a term used during the Renaissance period, meaning nice to meet you or pleased to meet you, which describes Emily's indoctrination into the world of the Renaissance faire. Emily's position as serving wench at the faire is symbolic of the way Emily looks at herself after her boyfriend left; she feels unworthy of attention or love. Her lack of confidence borders on annoying, but never tips too far over that line. Overall, this is a fun, light romance with likable characters and an enjoyable plot. ( )

Well Met by Jen DeLuca
1st book in the Well Met series. Contemporary romantic comedy. Enemies to lovers troupe.
Emily moves to a small town in Maryland to help her sister recover from an injury. As a chaperone to her niece, Emily volunteers to be a part of the local summer Renaissance Fair. Emily meets Simon during rehearsals. Heat between the two increases where the wench is hand-fasted to the pirate for the weekends.

A cute romance with too much angst (the heroine brought it all on herself) and a wonderful HEA. I look forward to reading more of this series.
If you’ve enjoyed attending a Renaissance Fair, you’ll recognize the player roles, the skits, the food and the partial farm/forest land format.

A line that struck me as humorous.
“I tilted my head like a cocker spaniel.”

🎧 I listened to a audiobook version narrated by Brittany Pressley. She did a wonderful job with voice variations and expressing emotions. There were distinct voice for Emily and Simon which made the story easy to follow. I listened at my normal rate of 1.2 which was a good conversational pace. ( )

The "ren faire" was a fun backdrop for the story and I learnt something about the concept, including a cute hand fasting ceremony. The audiobook was read by Brittany Pressley who did a great job of the male voices and at varying the female voices. Not to put it too crudely, the H/H's baggage was a touch overworked but that is more usual than unusual in the average romance novel. Still, it was an involving listen. ( )

3 1/2 stars! I thought it was a very sweet story and it had a unique concept that I had never read before. This was a great rom com that had me laughing throughout the story and had great characters. I read it in one day but it still took me longer than normal to get through it which is abnormal for me when it’s such a short book. I would still recommend this book to others and can’t wait for the sequel, Well Played to come out in September. ( )
