Mia and Jake have known each other their whole lives. They’ve endured summer vacations, Sunday brunches, even dentist visits together. Their mothers, who are best friends, are convinced that Mia and Jake would be the perfect couple, even though they can’t stand to be in the same room together.After Mia’s mom turns away yet another cute boy, Mia and Jake decide they’ve have had enough. Together, they hatch a plan to get their moms off their backs. Permanently. All they have to do is pretend to date and then stage the worst breakup of all time—and then they’ll be free.
The only problem is, maybe Jake and Mia don’t hate each other as much as they once thought…
This was so freaking cute! Honestly, this would be such a good book for summer reading. I loved our characters and thought they were perfect for each other. Even though they didn’t want to admit at first.
Reading about Mia and Jake fake dating was such a treat! Every time they bickered, had cute moments, and just basically being together added 10 years to my life. Mia was hilarious and quirky while Jake was super cute and ending up being a very swoony guy.
While I did enjoy this, I can admit that it did have its issues. It was very predictable and I did get a bit frustrated with these two not realizing how they felt about the other. But whatever.
It was worth it!
All in all, pick this book up when it releases later this month. Take it to the beach or just cozy up at home. Just read this cute story. I’m off to go pick her debut!
