synopsis4

Mai Senn knows Anthony Adams is no good for her – no matter how hard she might crush on him. She’s valedictorian; he’s a surf bum. She’s got plans, he’s got his art. Complete opposites in every way. Vinegar and baking soda, they once joked. A chemical reaction that bubbled.

Yeah, they bubbled. Maybe still do.

Good thing Anthony’s got the perfect plan: two weeks to prove just how not good they are together. Whoever can come up with the worst date—something the other will seriously hate, proving how incompatible they truly are—wins.

Like taking a snake-phobe to the Reptile House at the zoo (his idea).

Or a cooking class where they don’t even get to eat the food (her idea).

It’s all about the competition, and it’s meant to help them finally crush their crushes. But it wasn’t supposed to be so hot. Or so fun. And when Mai’s future becomes at stake, will she be able to do the right thing and quit Anthony forever?

A Deliciously Swoony, Adorably Fun, and Heartwarming YA Romance

4halfhearts

I’ve been struggling to read lately and this adorably fun book was exactly what I needed. Entangled Teen Crush stories never fail to make me smile, laugh, swoon, and just have a great time. How to Quit Your Crush by Amy Fellner Dominuy was no exception and I absolutely loved this delightful teen romance that had feeling giddy and hooked from the start.

I absolutely adore this story and the characters with all my heart! I found myself engrossed and enchanted by everything and completely loved spending time with Mai and Anthony. From the very beginning, I knew I would have fun with this book and I definitely did and so much more. The plot has everything I love and enjoy in romance stories – humor, banter, a little drama here and there, and plenty of adorable and heartwarming moments. I love stories about “first loves” especially the ones that are forbidden or opposites attract, so this one totally hit all the feels for me. It’s cute, it’s sweet, it’s wonderful, and it has heart. I was completely smitten and I couldn’t stop smiling while reading this book.

I think the characters are charming, realistic, and relatable. Mai and Anthony are fantastic leads and the side characters are pretty okay too. Both Mai and Anthony had their own insecurities and issues and it was lovely to see them mature and be there for each other. I loved their chemistry, their flirting, their bantering, and all their cutesy moments together. They’re just so adorable and perfect and all their interactions had my heart dancing and skipping and oh my the swoons!

How to Quit Your Crush by Amy Fellner Dominy is such a sweet, cute, and delightfully fun teen romance that had me turning the pages. I enjoyed the easy to read writing style, the wonderful storyline, the lovely characters, the romance, and all the beautiful moments that made me smile. This deliciously swoony and heartwarming YA romance is the perfect summer read and I honestly can’t recommend it enough.

I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher, Entangled Teen Crush via Netgalley. All thoughts, opinions, smiles, and swoons are my own.

synopsis

From Christina June, author of It Started with Goodbye and Everywhere You Want to Be, comes No Place Like Here, a modern twist on Hansel and Gretel.

Ashlyn Zanotti has big plans for the summer. She’s just spent a year at boarding school and can’t wait to get home. But when Ashlyn’s father is arrested for tax evasion and her mother enters a rehab facility for “exhaustion,” her life is turned upside down.

The cherry on top? Ashlyn’s father sends her to work with a cousin she doesn’t even know at a rustic team-building retreat center in the middle of nowhere. A self-proclaimed “indoor girl,” not even Ash’s habit of leaving breadcrumb quotes—inspirational sayings she scribbles everywhere—can help her cope.

With a dangerously careless camp manager doling out grunt work, an overbearing father trying to control her even from prison, and more than a little boy drama to struggle with, the summer is full of challenges. And Ashlyn must make the toughest decision of her life: keep quiet and follow her dad’s marching orders, or find the courage to finally stand up to her father to have any hope of finding her way back home.

Fans looking for clean teen fiction, with elements of drama, romance, friendship, and an unflinching look into navigating and improving even the most difficult parent-teen relationships need look no further.

Wonderfully Touched My Heart

4halfhearts

I think this story is simply beautiful. No Place Like Here by Christina June is a delightfully entertaining, fascinating, and riveting story that wonderfully touched my heart.

I haven’t read any books by June before, but that’s definitely something I’m going to change ASAP. This book is light, warm, and fluffy, but also really emotional in the loveliest way. I truly had an amazing time reading this book and cannot wait for you to meet Ashlyn, follow her on a life-changing journey, smile and swoon, and feel empowered.

This book is a gem! June blends adventure, friendship, drama, romance, forgiveness, and love in perfect harmony. I really enjoyed her writing style and felt this sense of wonder throughout the entire time I was reading. The storyline is charming, engaging, surprising, and so full of heart. It’s also a bit quirky, quite hilarious at times, whimsical in some ways, and even heartbreaking, but so genuine, real and incredibly moving. It definitely has all the best FEELS and I loved it!

I liked Ashlyn and her character development. She’s smart, hard-working, funny, and kind. She has a good heart and I rooted so hard for her. I thought Hannah is awesome. She’s actually my favorite and I just loved her personality. She can be blunt, but I admired her honesty. I adored Baxter so much. He’s encouraging, supportive, and really sweet. I was really hoping for more swoons, but I definitely enjoyed the cute and heartwarming moments he shared with Ashlyn.

I loved so many things about this story. I thought the setting is beautiful, the characters are likable and relatable, the plot is exciting with plenty of fun bread crumbs, the romance is sweet, and the overall message is important and inspiring. I loved the bond that blossoms between Ashlyn and Hannah, the friendship that forms between Baxter and Ashlyn, and the family relationships that are slowly healing. This is such a beautifully heartfelt story and an absolute joy to read.

No Place Like Here is utterly precious and unforgettable. I loved the story, the writing, the lessons, and the all the wonderful feels. I honestly can’t recommend it enough and I really hope you grab a copy of this charming book!

I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher and TLC Book Tours in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughs and opinions are my own. divider4
