Sawyer Roarke was my best friend.

Growing up, our families were inseparable. We spent summers vacationing at the beach. In the school yard, it was us against the world. Then puberty hit, and we skated the thin line of staying buddies, or becoming more. Until I accidentally found the pros and cons list he made about whether or not to date me. And there were definitely more bullet points on the no side.

Acting out of rage and hurt, I embarrassed him in the most public way possible. Now, we’re enemies.We’ve spent the last two years tearing each other to pieces. Everyone knows that Blair and Sawyer hate the ground the other walks on, and unfortunately, I got the unpopular end of the stick while he became Mr. Prom King.

Until senior year starts, and I’m tired of running scared. For the first time ever, I stand up to the golden boy with the whip-smart tongue. As the challenges and dares pick up speed, hearts start to fall and feelings get entangled. Despite my initial discovery, I wonder if being caught by each other wouldn’t be so bad.Except Sawyer has no idea what I found all those years ago.

And if the truth comes out about why I pitted us against each other, not only will he add one more con to his list … but he can add my broken heart as well.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

I binged Foes & Cons in a day, because I could not put it down. Sawyer and Blair’s story hooked me from the prologue, and I had to know how things would turn out after that disastrous game of Seven Minutes In Heaven.

Sawyer and Blair were once best friends, but after she humiliated him that night, they have been sworn enemies. And Sawyer had no clue why the person he knew better than anyone would have done that to him. Blair has kept the knowledge of what she knew he wrote about her to herself for years. But when they have to work on a project together, her resolve starts to crumble. And Sawyer is hella confused about his growing feelings for the best friend who betrayed him.

By the time I got to Blair’s confession of having seen Sawyer’s pros & cons list, I cried for these two. He loves her, she loves him, always have and always will. But have they done too much damage to repair their fractured friendship?

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
