He’s my arch nemesis. The bane of my life.
And I spend the night in his arms.
Jude Jenkins lives for one thing only: driving me up the wall. We work on opposite desks, glaring at each other the whole time. He’s the devil. I wouldn’t trust him to put me out if I was on fire.
But our rooftop work party changes everything. When we dance… it feels like coming home.
We’re still bickering.
But we’re inching closer, too.
Maybe this tingly feeling isn’t hate after all…
Dancing with the Enemy is a short and steamy instalove story, starring two boneheads who are GONE for each other.

Short, sexy and satisfying
Cassie Mint is one of my go-to authors for a quick, pick-me-up, short and sexy story that I’m sure to enjoy. I would call her an insta-love author but that’s not always the case, as with this book. What she has over other authors who write similar books is that her plots and characters feel likeable and real and the connection between them always electric.
When we meet our couple – Jude and Violet – they’ve known each other for a long time working for the same company. And boy do they infuriate each other. Lots of silly nicknames, hair ruffles, bickering and badgering. You can tell from the very first that this is classic school yard pulling pigtails – and our couple are mad for each other, even if neither of them realise it.
But they do realise it – so we get some yearning, angst and unrequited love – or so they think. I’m a sucker for an enemies to lovers but I’m definitely not going to say no to some yearning! The fact that Jude seems to be in a bit deeper at the start of the story just makes me happier. Love my men to be miserable!
Both Jude and Violet are likeable, relatable characters and I was definitely rooting for them to work things out. The pair have immediate chemistry and whether they’re fighting or flirting, you can feel the connection between them. The sex is deliciously hot but also adds to – and fits with – our couple’s story.
Much of the action takes place at an office party which I’m assuming is the Night To Remember in the series of the same name, of which this is the first book. We get teasing snippets of the other couples and I am so looking forward to the next two books Faking It With Her Crush and Tangling With The Boss.
This was the fun and fresh, quick and sexy story that I needed to kick off my year’s reading. It’ll take you less than an hour to read but you’ll definitely be satisfied by the end. 5 stars.
