Published by: Swoon Reads
Publication date: June 12th 2018
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult
Debut author Alex Evansley delivers a sweet summer romance in this inventive novel about a young heartthrob and teen author falling in love.
Teddy Sharpe is kind of famous. He might actually be on his way to being really famous, especially if he’d nailed an audition for the lead role in the movie adaption of the newest bestselling young adult book series. There’s just one problem: He totally blew the audition. And he’s stuck in a tiny North Carolina airport. And his maybe-ex-girlfriend kind of just broke up with him.
The weekend isn’t exactly looking good until Bennett Caldwell, author of the very book series he just auditioned for, takes pity on him and invites him to her family’s lake house. Away from the glitz and glam of Hollywood for a few days, Teddy starts to relax . . . and somehow he and Bennett just click. But dating is hard enough when you aren’t the subject of several dozen fanblogs, and the Internet is full of juicy gossip about Teddy and Bennett . . . gossip that Bennett might not be prepared to handle.
Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan’s young adult imprint Swoon Reads, Alex Evansley’s debut novel, written from both Bennett and Teddy’s perspectives, will have teens laughing, swooning, and falling in love along with these fantastically relatable characters.
Wonderfully Charming, Adorably Funny and Beautiful Written
[Warning: I may have gone overboard with using the word SWOON in this review, but in my defense, this book is one of the swooniest teen rom-com I’ve read.]
A wonderfully charming, adorably funny, and beautifully written debut novel, Love Scene, Take Two by Alex Evansley had me positively captivated. It was just so fun and cute and endearing that I never wanted the story to end. I definitely know without a doubt that this book will be one of my favorite YA contemporary reads this year.
I’m very impressed with Evansley’s writing style that I quickly fell in love with this story. Her writing is genuinely realistic, beautiful, and delightfully engaging. It was easy to read that I was able to connect with the characters from the very beginning. Even though the story was written in third-person, it felt like I was actually reading in first-person from Teddy and Bennett’s POVs. I felt what they felt and really cared about what happened to them. I was emotionally invested and satisfyingly engrossed that I could not put the book down.
I loved the premise of this book so much! I thought it was sweet and just the cutest and yeah…. I was definitely addicted. The plot was so amazingly well-developed, entertainting, and hilarious. There were so many moments that made me smile, laugh, and swoon. Honestly, I don’t even know how my heart is still whole cause it melted over and over again. I’m just so in love with this story and Teddy and Bennett and Emma and Oliva and pretty much everything about this beautiful novel.
The characters were all quite charmingly interesting and ridiculously lovable. Yes, even the ones you want to hate, you really can’t cause they’re part of what made the story a success. And as frustrating as they were sometimes, they were realistic and had this vulnerabily that made them so relatable. I wouldn’t change anything at all even if a certain character did really annoy me.
I Loved Loved Loved Bennett and Teddy so much. They were so stinkin’ cute together! Bennett was smart, witty, and passionate while Teddy was all kinds of swoons and sweetness. They definitely had some fun witty bantering, heart melting scenes, and their sarcasm too damn adorable. Their chemistry was EVERYTHING and I honestly cannot get enough of them. I think I have a new favorite OTP and an absolutely dreamy and swoon-worthy book boyfriend to add on my list.
Love Scene, Take Two is delightfully sweet, incredibly funny, and absolutely swoony. With so much heart-melting FEELS, intriguing family drama, great friendships, and cute romance, this book is the perfect rom-com story you’ll want to read this summer. I smiled so much and swooned so hard that I know this fantastically fun book will always have a special place in my heart. I definitely cannot wait to read more books from this author.
I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley and for participating in a promotional Blog Tour hosted Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Alex Evansley is a twenty-something-year-old writer from North Carolina. Her specialized talents include putting on workout clothes and not working out, sleeping during the day, losing socks, and procrastinating stories she’d like to write. Love Scene, Take Two is her debut novel.
Hope you enjoyed reading this review. Until next time love! Have a wonderful day.
