My Thoughts 

I originally wanted to read this because I, too, have (in the past) suffered under a painfully horrible HOA (the main incident I’m reminded of was when my husband and children were standing in our cul-de-sac, playing badminton, politely - no yelling). Someone actually took a photo and emailed it to the HOA and we got a letter and really, when an HOA member tells you in all earnestness that you can’t even enjoy your neighborhood while being somewhat active - let me just say, fuck HOA’s). 

I’m not really certain why this one is being hyped as an enemies-to-lovers because there’s nothing of the sort here (enemies to lovers isn’t usually my genre, as I’ve never found an enemies-to-lovers novel that I’ve enjoyed as much as Pride and Prejudice). He’s the unwilling president of the HOA, enforcing their rules; the real enemy here, of course, is the HOA, not its president. 

This one was a cute and easy read.

No way is Amelia backing down on this one. Gnomegate? Really? HOA President Kyle Sanders would be a good friend—or even something more—if Amelia wasn't gearing up for battle with the HOA in her determination to make her house a home and her neighborhood a community...
