Gemma can't believe her luck when the star football player starts flirting with her. Max is totally swoon-worthy, and even gets her quirky sense of humor. So when he asks out her so-called best friend Addison, Gemma's heartbroken.

Then Addison pressures Gemma to join the date with one of Max's friends. But the more time they all spend together, the harder Gemma falls for Max. She can't help thinking that Max likes her back--it's just too bad he's already dating Addison. How can Gemma get the guy she wants without going after her best friend's boyfriend?
Whenever Jennifer Echols has a new book coming out, I always add it to my list because her books are so enjoyable to read. And this one was no different!
All the characters are a great, unique bunch who I found totally relatable! Apart from Addison, the “so called best friend”, I loved the characters and enjoyed that they weren’t stereotypical. I especially liked Gemma, as she reminded me a bit of myself.
I’d classify this book as YA but it also had a pinch of Middle grade-ness to it, with first dates, first kisses and cute crushes.
The banter between Gemma and Max was gorgeous and will definitely conjure up smiles!
Whether you’re a long-time fan or you’ve yet to discover the awesome-ness that is Jennifer Echols, this book is a great place to start! If you’ve got this book on your ever growing pile of books, move it to the top and read it soon or if you don’t yet have yourself a copy run to the shops and get one immediately!!
So darn cute and totally addictive, once I started I couldn’t put it down!
