Title: Truce? Hating Elijah Monroe

Author: Amelia Kingston

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Truce? Hating Elijah Monroe:

A small town enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy.

Harper Delaney is a newly certified elementary school teacher with the mountain of student loan debt to prove it. Moving back to her claustrophobically small hometown is about as tempting as two week old sushi, but the allure of free rent and a guaranteed summer teaching job are undeniable.

On the hunt for her dream job in San Francisco, Harper just needs to survive the summer without murdering Elijah Monroe. He may have grown into a scorchingly hot fireman, but he’s still her nemesis. Harper gave Elijah her heart when she was sixteen, and never forgave the jerk for not wanting it. Probably for the best, since he’s also her stepbrother.

Elijah still makes Harper’s blood boil and heart race. And he knows it. She’ll wipe that smug smirk off his gorgeous face before leaving town. The only question is if she wants to do it with a kiss or a slap.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

This book was so good! It started off kind of slow for me, but once I realized that Elijah was in love with Harper, it all clicked.

As the book flashes back and forth between when Elijah and Harper first meet as teenagers to the present day, we get a glimpse into their past and how nerdy, ordinary Harper never imagines that one of the hottest, most popular guys in school would ever look at her twice. Even if he was her stepbrother and lived across their shared bathroom. All of their interactions are tainted on her side as him being out of her league, and him barely standing the sight of her, but I could see from Elijah’s side how she was twisting it all wrong in her mind. And I loved it.

In present day, she is totally oblivious to his feelings for her, and it just kicks up the sexual chemistry so much between them. When they finally come together, it’s explosive. And then heartbreaking the next moment when Harper tries to run — thinking that Elijah is in love with a woman who is not her.

This story ends on a great HEA, and it was such a delight to read. I would love to see stories for Eli’s friends, too! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Amelia Kingston is many things, the most interesting of which are probably California girl, writer, traveler, and dog mom. She survives on chocolate, coffee, wine, and sarcasm. Not necessarily in that order.


She’s been blessed with a patient husband who’s embraced her nomad ways and traveled with her to over 30 countries across 5 continents (I’m coming for you next, Antarctica!). She’s also been cursed with an impatient (although admittedly adorable) terrier who pouts when her dinner is 5 minutes late.


She writes about strong, stubborn, flawed women and the men who can’t help but love them. Her irreverent books aim to be silly and fun with the occasional storm cloud to remind us to appreciate the sunny days. As a hopeless romantic, her favorite stories are the ones that remind us all that while love is rarely perfect, it’s always worth chasing.
