Ayla Hawkins is ready to stand up for change in her high school. But winning the election for class president against popular Jenna Lee will be impossible without a miracle. When she stumbles upon Mr. Perfect Luke Pressler defacing public property and catches it on camera: cue miracle. Ayla’s got the dirt she needs to get Luke on Team Ayla—in the form of her new fake boyfriend.
One mistake. All Luke wanted was a night to goof off, to blow off steam. The pressure of maintaining the perfect facade when his reality was crumbling around him had become too much, and next thing he knew, he was pretending to date Ayla Hawkins. But his little blackmailer turns out to be kind. Honorable. Opinionated. And just the breath of fresh air he didn’t even realize he was suffocating for. But Luke and Ayla come from different worlds, and once the election is over, their fauxmance will be, too.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book features adult language, sexual situations, and plenty of girl power. Reading may result in swooning, laughing, and looking for a Luke of your own.
Ayla Hawkins is looking for a change in her high school. The arts are underfunded while the sports get all the money. The answer is to run for student president. She’s not popular enough to make it on her own. So one night she catches a video of Luke Pressler defacing public property. She uses the video to blackmail him into pretending to date her. He agrees to keep it from coming out. Luke and Ayla come from different worlds but they collide. How will they come back apart after the election?
In an Oyster Shell – A cozy romance that will have you reading to the point you can’t put it down.
The Pearls – The concept is one of my favorites. The underdog gets with the popular guy. It’s my favorite kind of story. I like that the popular guy is not all that he seems. He’s a real person with real struggles. Ayla gets to see that side of him when even his friends don’t. Luke gets to see Ayla as a breath of fresh air with her honesty and true to self-attitude.
The characters were rock solid. Ayla was a strong feminine character with her own style. She made no apologies for it and I loved that. Luke was a character with a lot of depth. As mentioned before he was a real person with real problems. He had problems he kept from his friends. The supporting characters added a nice layer to the story as well.
The romance was sweet. It was a slow burning love. It was an opposites attract story. I really enjoyed the story. If you like an underdog that overcomes story. This is the one for you.
The Sand – It was a really good story!
