There’s a fine line between love and hate. And these two can’t decide which side they’re really on. . . .
Poetry professor Naomi Price is loved by her students, happily works around the clock, and has credentials no one could deny. Except, it seems, for her arch-nemesis at Hainamor University. The man never has anything polite to say, and now the two of them are competing for a prestigious honor that just so happens to come with a cash award. With every move Naomi makes to impress her colleagues, her rival is right there beside her, elbow to elbow, making it impossible to ignore how devastatingly hot he is—even if he is a total bastard.
Sebastian Blake knows what Naomi thinks of him, and he’s trying hard not to care. Maybe he’s been grouchy with her in the past, but she isn’t making his life any easier with her crusade to win over the Personnel Committee and earn an honor that is rightfully his. Naomi just doesn’t quit, and though he’d never admit it, there’s something sexy about her. Something that has him tied up in knots. Something that makes him want to move beyond his painful past and take a chance—at least for as long as it takes to kiss her silly and see what happens next.
Warning: Intense bickering leads to intense sexual chemistry!

Smart, sexy, bold, and brilliant—Elizabeth Hayley brings it all to the page! I worship their mad storytelling skills!”—USA Today bestselling author Angel Payne
This is my first book by this duo and it definitely won't be the last!!
Naomi and Sebastian are colleagues in the English Department at a Vermont university and have been at odds since Naomi's first day. When they are tasked to compete against each other for an award from the school, the competition hits new heights but so does their explosive chemistry.
I'm a sucker for enemies to lovers books but there were times in this one that I had to remind myself that these two were old enough to be college professors. There was an immaturity to their interactions that I had a hard time believing. I did love the back stories of both Naomi and Sebastian and how once they got past all the sniping, they were actually pretty perfect for each other. I hope Naomi's friends get HEAs too! This world is definitely one I'd love to revisit.
