Ms. Romance, Hannah Arden, writes one of the top read relationship advice columns in the nation. Mr. Reality, Brooks North, writes the top read relationship advice column.

Ms. Romance believes in true love and soul mates. Mr. Reality believes love is a term humanity has assigned to the primal instinct to procreate. She believes in fate—he in chance. She knows there’s one right person for everyone—he knows there are multiple ones. The two writers couldn’t be more polarized on relationships. They’re professional rivals, and philosophical antagonists.

For eight years, their battles have been fought with words and ink. That changes when they apply for the same position at the World Times and find themselves face-to-face for the first time. Brooks isn’t the sour-faced, antiquity of a man Hannah pictured. And Hannah isn’t exactly the middle-aged shrew with cat hair on her housedress that Brooks imagined either.

In lieu of competing for the promotion traditional ways, the two writers are presented with playing the leading roles in a social experiment unlike any before. Can a person be tricked into falling in love? Can a relationship be crafted under the right string of circumstances? Hannah knows the answer. So does Brooks.

Agreeing to the terms, the two set out on a three-month dating experiment, live-streamed for the world to watch. All Hannah has to do to win is not fall in love with the narcissistic brute. All Brooks has to do is get the starry-eyed dreamer to fall in love with him. Both are so confident in their philosophies, they expect the challenge to be easy.

With the world watching, Brooks and Hannah will be forced to confront their beliefs and conclude, once and for all, who’s right. The answer is one neither of them saw coming.

Liezel’s Thoughts:

“Dating The Enemy” is about  a man and a woman who are out to prove two opposing points. We all have our opinions about various subjects, right? So, what’s the big deal? Not only are Hannah Arden aka Ms. Romance and Brooks North aka Mr. Reality jobs are on the line but their reputations and all that they stand for are put up for debate on national TV no less.

What was so great about these two were the arguments. Hannah’s claims was so convincing and so was Brooks’. The dialogue and of course the flirtation between the two was spot on. I loved how they managed to challenge each other at every turn. For a romance, “Dating The Enemy” didn’t have any “heated moments” as anticipated but that did not deter me from enjoying the story.

Looking for a book that will have you smiling from ear to ear? Something that will bring you the warm-fuzzies? One that will brighten your day? Nicole Williams’ “Dating The Enemy” is that book for you!
