Well Played by Jen Deluca is an excellent sequel to Well Met. This series is rom coms at the Renaissance Faire.
Well Played can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading them in order. If you are going to read both books reading them in order is a must.
Well Played is Stacey’s love story. Stacey is friends with Emily and Simon from Well Met. Stacey moved back home years ago to help out with her mom’s health problems. Stacey is always single. She’s had a fling the last few years at the Renaissance Faire with Dex. Their relationship was always only physical. After Faire this year, Stacey starts texting Dex and they quickly bond. Everything is not as it seems and Stacey will be surprised to find out the truth.
I absolutely loved Well Played. I also loved Well Met so was impatiently waiting for Well Played to be released. This story is cute and funny while also having some emotional points. I was engaged from the first page.
I loved Stacey and Daniel’s characters. Their relationship and connection is amazing. Stacey is self-conscious of her appearance and weight. Daniel is self-conscious because Stacey never paid attention to him. How will both characters react when they find out the truth? The ups and downs of the characters reactions to revelations had me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next. I feel like all of Deluca’s characters are very real and relatable. I wish I could be friends with all her characters. Well Played is the sequel to Well Met, so all your favorite characters return.
I listened to the audiobook and Brittany Pressley did a great job narrating. Her narration added to an excellent story.
I highly recommend Well Played to fans of Jen Deluca, Renaissance Faire’s, and romantic comedies.
