James Parson has a problem. His military dad is going to yank him out of his expensive boarding school if James doesn’t prove he’s no longer hooking up, pulling pranks, and charming his way out of consequences. What better way to show he’s now responsible than becoming the committed boyfriend of a U.S. diplomat’s daughter?
Level-headed, book-smart Edelweiss may have traveled the world thanks to her dad’s job, but when it comes to friends and boys, she knows exactly nothing. Newly enrolled in boarding school, Edel is now on a mission to learn it all. James says he’ll help her experience the ultimate high school life—if she’ll be his fake girlfriend. And fake is perfect, because he’s exactly the kind of player she’d never date.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains red-hot romance, all the feels, and a soul-mate bad boy.
Coming into this book I was not expecting whole lot. Just another love story gone bad, then they end up together because of love. I barely read romance because I feel like every story is the same and nothing changes. which makes the story predictable from the beginning, but….
I was WRONG about this story! This is your typical love story, but it was written so uniquely and so many twist that had me wondering if they were really going to be together in the end. I loved the writing style, the duo POV’S of the two main characters, and the change you see in the end from each character.
Edelweiss, daughter of a US diplomat, traveled all over the world and never experienced the physical school life. To get better recommendations for her college resume, she convinced her parents to put her in a high known school. This private school was dormed and coed, but there were serious amount of rules. Edel’s first day and she was trampled by James Patterson, the bad boy, who is her dads best friends son. Not knowing of who he was, they were already late and James helped her sneak into the student assembly without getting caught or so they thought. Everyone knew about there entrance and James ex best friends, Emma, had it set out for Edel since then. As the story unfolds, there are twist, untold secrets, and conflicts between characters. A fake relationship was proposed, would feelings get in the way of the perfect “fake” love?
I asked the author a few questions, but I picked my favorite one. Her response was so funny and unique. I love how friendly ad outspoken she is. Lizzy is super responsive and an amazing writer.
Are there any secrets you hide in your books that only a few people will find?
- None of my main female characters like Oreo cookies. Even though I have a powerful imagination, I can’t seem to grasp how anyone can like them compared to a delicious oatmeal raison cookie, or any cookie for that matter!
