Why I Picked This Up: Because I got an ARC of this book and it just sounded so cute!
True love can’t be strategized.
After book blogger Vivian Galdi’s longtime crush pretends their secret summer kissing sessions never happened, Vivian creates a list of safe crushes, determined to protect her heart.
But nerd-hot Dallas, the sweet new guy in town, sends the mission and Vivian’s zing meter into chaos. While designing software for the bookstore where Vivian works, Dallas wages a counter-mission.
Operation Replacement Crush is in full effect. And Dallas is determined to take her heart off the shelf.
This book was just so cute! Add a side of nerdy-ness and you’ve got the perfect beach read. Those who are fans of a fun, cute, contemporary books then you should totally pick this one up!
Vivian and total Trekkie and book blogger lives with her mom and works with her mom in a book store. Every book lover’s dream right? well after a heartbreaking brush-off from a long-time crush whom she’s been having a summer affair with. Viv decides to come up with a plan to turn her attention to a replacement crush by finding perfectly safe crushes to help move on. I like Vivian, she’s smart, a nerd, kind and not a total brat which I so appreciate in a female character. She’s easy to connect with and even though I may have rolled my eyes a bit she was still an overall good character.
Enter equally nerdy but HOT new guy Dallas. Sorry when I pictured his character I couldn’t help but think of Dylan, I mean he’s was just so perfect for what I pictured! totally Cute. Everything about him was pure awesome-sauce. His antics will make you chuckle-which is a huge deal for me-he’s funny, sweet, and a all around good guy! I absolutely love him and think he is realistic which is so important for young readers when it comes to a swoon worthy male character!
The story was just full of cute and fun stuff with some total nerdy things that will make any one want to binge watching after reading this book.
Overall: It’s a fun contemporary read especially of fans of Kasie West which I am so yes, pick this book up! Totally worth it!
