If these two don’t kill each other, they might fall in love.
Rand hates Jax because he’s the laid-back, vegan-eating, tree-hugging, total-Zen-until-I-get-a-chance-to-screw-you president of Sigma Mu Tau, the nerdy fraternity that’s the sworn enemy of Rand’s house, Alpha Lambda Alpha. What a phony!
Jax hates Rand for being the privileged, rich-heir-to-an-oil-empire, environment-destroying, soul-sucking president of the ALA jocks—but mostly because Rand hated him first. Rand has sent nothing but hateful vibes his way since the day they met. What a douche!
The enemies have never had a single conversation that didn’t involve shouting—until Jax’s old Buick breaks down on a road trip and Rand plays reluctant rescuer. Jax is forced to sit on Rand’s dead cow seats. Rand learns chickens can enter the living room and that Jax’s beliefs are more than skin-deep. The bitter rivals embark on a quest to save a family member and discover that sometimes animosity is a mask for crazy-hot attraction. With this much face time, head-to-head might become heart-to-heart.
HEAD TO HEAD is an enemies to lovers, forced proximity, opposites attract, searching for his sister, clashing cultures, MM romance—with a whole lot of fracking.
This way, hands down, my favorite of the three books in the series. While I felt the other two lacking, this one made up for it.
We got to know Rand and Jax as presidents of their fraternities. Fraternities who are mortal enemies and were forced to work together on both Quiz Bowl and Flag Football. Neither competed in them, but being presidents of their frats kept them in the story.
Being front and center of this story, we really get to know them so much better. We meet their families- which really adds to their personal stories, as well as not having Quiz Bowl or Flag Football at the center of attention.
They had personality quirks that followed them throughout and just made them more interesting overall. And I was happy that they were both out of the closet already and just two guys who happened to be gay.
You could probably read this as a stand alone, but if you read the other two, this book is an excellent ending to the trilogy.
