The Rivals of Casper Road by Roan Parrish
September 27 2022
number of pages
Bram has just moved to Caspar Road. As the new resident, he is excited to join the yearly Halloween decoration contest. He is the kind of guy who makes fast with everyone, except for Zachary. Zachary is a work-from-home architect and a six-time winner of the contest. Bram loves to work with wood and makes an awesome sculpture that starts the rivalry between him and Zachary. A rivalry soon turns into attraction and more.
I was hooked by the synopsis of the book. Enemies to lovers is one of my favourite tropes, especially if it's combined with Halloween decoration rivalry.
However, reading the book left me feeling very disappointed. The rivalry was short-lived and soon evolved into pranks. There was not all that much enemies phase, as they got together so soon. And by get together, I mean hooked up and kind of became a couple after that. There was very little chemistry between them, no sparks and very little tension. It's just happened.
The story was lacklustre, but the biggest disappointments very the characters. I know very little about Bram and his personality, and what I do know, I don't like. He comes across as slimy for some reason.
