Book Summary:

Emma Dawson and Logan Reynolds have been neighbors and enemies for as long as either one can remember. Despite the fact their BFF fathers have been encouraging them their whole lives to be friends, they’ve managed to avoid each other at all costs. Emma thinks Logan is a callous jerk who cares about nobody but himself. Logan thinks Emma is a stuck-up goody-two-shoes with no life. The two couldn’t be any more different…which is why Emma is so confused when the Emerson High Computer Club’s “Summer Fling Compatibility Test” concludes they’re a perfect match.

But Logan’s not confused. He lied on the test to make his “sometimes girlfriend” think they’re not meant to be and now Emma is furious that he made her lose out on the chance of having a swoony summer romance with the perfect guy. Forced by his stepmother to make it up to her, Logan decides to help her win the heart of her lifelong crush: his best friend, Matt.

He knows how much of a challenge this will be. Matt is good-looking, popular and outgoing. Emma is quiet, bookwormish, and scared of everything. However, Logan is convinced that with some major tweaking, he can transform Emma into someone Matt could fall for. But as the summer heats up, so does their budding friendship… and soon, they may be faced with the biggest challenge of all: falling for each other.

If you know me and the books I read you know I’m not a fan of strong language (swearing) and even less a fan of young adult books where everyone is sleeping around. So why did I read this book? Well, that’s a good question…

I finished a book on my kindle and this showed up under Amazon’s “top picks” for me. The cover was cute as was the synopsis so I thought I’d gave it a go. I loved the author’s writing style and I was pulled into the plot and the really liked characters. This?has some?swearing, but it’s not on every page or even every other page. Usually, when I come across the F-word in a book I quit reading but this one didn’t have it in it until one very well placed point near the end.? There is also?talk of sex and hooking up and teenage drinking and partying (not my thing especially in ya books). Most books like this I stop reading and go on to something else but the author had hooked me so I kept reading. In fact, I liked this author’s writing enough that as soon as I finished this I read her other book. And honestly, this is milder than a lot of young adult books that are out there. I just don’t typically read many YA romances and when I do I tend to stick to Kasie West and a couple others I know I can trust to be free of language and sex.

I can’t really recommend this one due to the objectionable content but neither can I give it anything less than 4 stars because it was well done.

4 Stars – Great book (but please take note of the content mentioned below)

Content: Language including 1 use of the F-word, no sex scenes but talk of sex and it seems as if everyone sleeps around and it’s both accepted and expected, innuendo & crude thoughts, comments
