About the book: Sixteen-year-old Brooke Pierce doesn’t need her mom to tell her all boys are trouble. After watching her dad break up the family for a woman half his age, dating is the last thing on her mind.
On the first day at a new high school, Brooke meets Luke, the school flirt with a reputation for heartbreak. He’s interested. She’s not. That only makes him chase her more. After a shocking revelation from her dad, Brooke and Luke form an unexpected bond, complete with crazy rules to keep them safely in the friend zone. Problem is, that’s the worst place to be when you’re falling in love.
My review: This is a cute novella about Brooke. I liked her character. I liked the fact that even though she is young, she knows just what she wants to be when she grows up, a matchmaker, she knows just where she wants to work and she's got her life all planned out with out a trace of a cheating guy anywhere in it. Brooke's situation with her parents shows her just what she doesn't want or need in her life and that's why she's continually pushing Luke away. Until one day when she needs him because she has no one else in her life to really talk about her feelings with.
I liked that you get to see just what Luke is thinking in this one too! I liked that he was always so protective of Brooke with the guys that they went to school with and that he's able to help her out when she needs it most. I liked that he was willing to go along with all of her crazy rules, in order to keep her close to him.
This is a cute, clean novella that I enjoyed reading!
I was sent an e-copy of this novella in exchange for an honest review.
