Enemies to Lovers
After centuries of sleep, the gods are warring again. But eighteen-year-old Iris Winnow just wants to hold her family together. Her mother is suffering from addiction and her brother is missing from the front lines. Her best bet is to win the columnist promotion at the Oath Gazette.
To combat her worries, Iris writes letters to her brother and slips them beneath her wardrobe door, where they vanish―into the hands of Roman Kitt, her cold and handsome rival at the paper. When he anonymously writes Iris back, the two of them forge a connection that will follow Iris all the way to the front lines of battle: for her brother, the fate of mankind, and love.

I have come to savor the moment when I sit down to read a Rebecca Ross novel, knowing I will be sucked in by the rich settings, beautiful magic, and lovable characters. It is safe to say her latest novel, Divine Rivals, does not disappoint. This is a cancel your plans, order takeout, phone on silent type of book.
Iris Winnow has a lot on her mind. Her brother has gone missing on the front lines of a war brought on by gods, while her mother struggles with addiction. On top of all that she is competing for a columnist promotion at the Oath Gazette, which she desperately needs. She finds solace in writing letters to her brother on her typewriter and slipping them under her wardrobe door—where they magically vanish. One hitch: the letters aren’t making it to her brother . . . they’re ending up in the hands of fellow Oath Gazette writer and Iris’s bitter rival, Roman Kitt. But when Roman decides to anonymously write her back, the two will form a bond that will see them through the many challenges that lie ahead.
The hardest part about reading Divine Rivals is deciding whether to speed through as quickly as possible to discover the fates of Iris and Roman, or to take your time and revel in this world of warring gods and magical typewriters that can make even toughest rivals come together. Make sure to add this one to your box. To put it simply, this story is divine.

This review is not fresh off the press of my brain finishing the book📝🤍 Did not expect to breeze through this one, magical typewriters rule and this love story is epic. Hope for more mythology in #2
Cue my heart being shattered in a million pieces 😭 In this book we are lead on a journey from the offices of a newspaper to the front lines of a war between gods. It's mostly told in Iris's POV, but
