Beach Rivals

Beach Rivals

Escape to Bali with this summer's hottest enemies-to-lovers beach read


Brought to you by Penguin.

One bookshop in paradise. Two sworn rivals. A whole summer to get through...

Clare thought that by now she would have her life figured out. Instead, she's living with her parents, working a job she hates and has absolutely no idea what she wants to do with the rest of her life.

When she sees a viral job advert for a three-month bookseller position on a Bali beach, she jumps at the chance. But it's not until she arrives in Bali that Clare realises she won't be working in the bookshop alone.

Instead she's sharing the bookshop - and a flat - with a handsome but infuriating American man. Jack is Clare's opposite in almost every way, and it's not long before they're driving each other crazy. But fighting with Jack is also the most fun Clare's had in years, and it's only a matter of time before their relationship turns less than professional...

Beach Rivals is an escapist, slow-burn enemies-to-lovers rom com - the ideal summer read!
