What didn't work for me was the whole pretend-ex's. It was difficult for me to believe that Dominic would forgo his journalistic standards (that he formed whilst in grad school lol) for a relationship podcast. Also, I question how Shay could have been so game for lying to her listeners almost immediately upon being offered the chance to host her own show. Or maybe Shay is such a veteran at public radio this kind of lie is common? The lie just felt so icky and cringey it was hard for me to trust the main characters. I would rather have had none of the faux-ex storyline and just have them host a show about relationships and then they organically fall for each other.… (més)

1. Rowan is a relatable female main character for anyone who felt the need to be a perfectionist in high school (or in general)
2. This book includes a lot of diversity - LGBTQA+ rep (Kirby and Maya's relationship), Jewish rep (Rowan and Neil's religious beliefs), and cultural rep (Rowan's mother's Spanish heritage)

4. Similar plot to The Summer of Broken Rules by K.L. Walther, seeing as though they both have an "assassin" plot line
5. Heartwarming quote: "You are never too anything for books" ... when Neil told Rowan that he was "too old" to be reading children's books

SO CUTE!

Ambitious nerds and high school rivals reveal their true feelings over a day long scavenger hunt on the last day of senior year.

Plus, it's a love song to romance novels and those that love them. It's also very feminist, sex positive and LGBTQ friendly.

I read in the author notes that she got into romance novels after the 2016 election because everything else just seemed like TOO MUCH when the world was going crazy but romance novels were happy and comforting and she couldn't get enough. And then she decided to write one and defend them as a legit genre. I've always liked reading romance, since I was a kid reading "Silhouette First Love" novels, but I've doubled down on the rom-com, chick-lit, sweet YA romance since 2016 and I have been mostly apologizing for it but this made me feel like I shouldn't.… (més)
