How to get over a heartbreak:
Step one: Eat your body weight in brownies.
Step two: Throw yourself into your dreams of becoming a famous writer.
Step three: Beg your (hottie) ex-neighbor to act as your fake boyfriend.
Step four: Skip step three unless you’re ready for some serious fallout.
After being dumped and humiliated over the summer, Cat Turner does what any sane girl would do. She asks bad boy Alex Locke to be her fake boyfriend and show the world (and her editor at the school newspaper) that she's fine. Problem is, the more time she spends with Alex, the more she risks getting her heart broken. For real this time.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a swoony bad boy who will melt your heart, brownies, and witty banter. One, two, or all three might prove addictive…
In an Oyster Shell – It was a cute book with a sweet heroine and a bad boy love interest.
The Pearls – I love how the book starts out with heartbreak brownies. It was a great way to start the book and set the tone for what was to come. I love that Cat is a writer. I think books that have writer’s as characters are bold and funny.
The characters were distinctive and made the story. I love a book with great supporting characters this one had it in spades. Cat was a sweet character with a little bit of spunk. Alex was a haunted character that needed the encouragement Cat could bring him. My favorite character was Alex’s grandmother.
The romance was my favorite kind friends that fake it until they are something more. It was nicely paced not too fast.
