“Juliet … Juliet! Wake up!” Layla says as she shakes the crap out of my body. “Tyler will be here in ten minutes if you want a ride.”
“Go… Er …. Ah,” I grumble into my pillow at my twin.
“I don’t know what you are saying under there.” She yanks my fluffy shield away from my face. “You gotta get out of bed sleepy head. You can’t go to school in your PJ’s” she sing-songs in the most chipper voice ever.
Ugh morning people suck. I roll over onto my back and shoot my twin a glare. “Watch me.” I wrangle myself out of bed and head to the bathroom.
Before I reach the bathroom, Layla says, “Run a flat iron through that rat’s nest you call hair and he sure to throw some lip gloss. You don’t wanna look like roadkill returning to school after break.”
Now scroll down…
Not quite yet, so keep going…
Just a little more…
Right Kiss Wrong Guy
(Offsides Book 2)
Published by Swoon Romance January 23, 2018
You’d think a girl with the most romantic name in the world would have her pick of boyfriends.
But Valentine’s Day sucks when you’re single. Just ask Juliet Valentine, whose last name happens to also be the name of the most dreaded made-up holiday ever.
A romantic at heart, this year is especially hard on Juliet. Her sister, Layla, is in a new relationship, her mom’s match-making business is doing great, and her school’s new fundraiser is “Love-Grams.”
Juliet’s miserable, a little jealous, and lonely.
Quarterback Jared Black is the most popular guy in school. A star athlete, Jared tops the most-eligible bachelor list year after year. But to Juliet Valentine, he’s all but invisible. She isn’t impressed.
Jared’s never had to work hard to get the attention of a girl before. Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and he’s determined to ask Juliet out. After all, if Tyler can win over Layla, Jared ought to have a shot with Layla’s sister.
Unlike Tyler and Layla, charm, flattery and good looks won’t work on Juliet. So with the V-Day dance coming up, Jared uses the school’s Love-Grams to let Juliet know how he feels. Should be simple enough, right?
Wrong. Each attempt ends up either in the trash or thrown in someone’s face. Juliet won’t play his game.
Now, without a date to the dance Jared realizes it’s going to take a Hail Mary to win the girl of his dreams.
I devoured this lovely book in less than 24 hours! So adorable and cute. I did have a little problem with the ending — it felt a bit rushed, a little forced, and kind of off. But overall, I honestly really enjoyed the story so much that I’m going to pick up the first book soon as I can. Anyway, I’ll have my review for this next week during my blog tour stop.
Have you read this book yet? What did you think? Leave your comments down below. I’d love to hear from you!
Have a wonderful weekend loves!
