Johnaka's Review:

“New series same humor, 5 stars”

Some days it feels like Ellie and Wyatt have always been at war since they were younger. He was the typical older brother’s best friend. They have mastered the art of verbal foreplay before they even realized it. She didn’t know he was going to be in town during her best friend’s wedding and he scared off her fake date, now she finds herself flirting with her frenemy. But will the flirting turn into more?

Wyatt has always loved that Ellie gives it all back as much as he dishes. She’s the only one in his life who has never held back from him. One night their relationship changed and its changing once again. How much can things change in a week? One thing is for sure though, no matter how much he loves spending time with Ellie, he’s in town for his son. Will he be able to keep his priorities straight or will he make space for both of them?

Grant gives us humor, pirates, and bad luck in Flirting with the Frenemy. One thing is for sure Grant never disappoints when I need a book to make me laugh. I got a kick out of Ellie, Wyatt and everyone surrounding them. I cannot wait to see where the rest of the series goes and who’s next.

Erin's Review:

Flirting with the Frenemy is the first in a new series by Pippa Grant. While a new series, there are elements that connect to previous books, though we see all new characters. As you can guess, our main characters are enemies; she's the little sister to his best friend. I was excited for a new Pippa Grant book-she's one of my favorite authors!
This book differs from many of Ms. Grant's in that we get to sneak peeks at many time period's in the characters lives to get a feel for them at different stages in their journey and underlying motivations. Besides the obvious enemies to lovers aspect, we see the book tell the story of amazing personal struggles and growth, and of great friends and the power of love and laughter. I enjoyed the quirky characters that are a Pippa Grant trademark, along with the off beat town setting. 
I loved the blurb about this book, but while it was entertaining it didn't give away much about our characters. Maybe since it's the first in the series, so we hadn't met them in previous books. There was so much unknown going in! Ellie is our female lead who has known Wyatt since childhood, when they annoyed each other for fun. They reconnected on Christmas over crappy life situations; culminating in Ellie's life being changed forever. Now Ellie is floundering and in need of the fake boyfriend. Wyatt is a single dad who is loyal and strong and fiercely protective but highly motivating to those around him. I liked their characters individually, and as a couple. There were a lot of secondary characters to keep track of with townsfolk, family, and exes; while I know they all played roles in the main story and I'm sure we'll see them all again in future books, it was a cit confusing and jumbled for this book.
It wouldn't be a Pippa Grant book without searing heat between our leads. Ellie and Wyatt just have a few chaotic issues with their chemistry. Their first night is both a pity sex and the culmination of years of lusting after each other. Coming back together later is a renewal of lust combined with both being in a new headspace about their lives. And while tragedy seems to strike every time they come together, they don't actually burn the house down (just the metaphorical sheets).
The book was very evenly paced. I didn't get sucked in like I did with most of Ms. Grant's work though. I liked all the characters, situations, and settings; though there were a lot of small details to process, all of which were important to this book -or will be to a future book I'm sure! 
I'm still not sure how I feel about this book. It is not one of my favorite Pippa Grant books (Charming as Puck) but it is a solid addition to her work. I liked how the characters worked to overcome situations, I liked the dialogue, I liked the comedy, the families, the exes, the kiddo, the goats, the pirates...but it just wasn't my favorite. But maybe it will be yours!

Favorite Quotes:
“How do you protect someone you love so much from ever getting hurt? Or let them hurt when they have to? How do you survive it?”
