Today I am a host for the Blog Tour of Any Boy Bout You by Julie Hammerle. This Blog Tour is coordinated by Chapter by Chapter Blog Tours.
PUBLISHER: Entangled: Crush
DATE PUBLISHED: 13th February 2017
Elena Chestnut has been chatting with an anonymous boy late into the night. It’s a very You’ve Got Mail situation, and she has no idea who he is. He can’t be Oliver Prince, hot-and-bashful son of the family running the rival sporting goods store. Their fancy sales strategies are driving Elena’s family out of business. Elena’s mystery boy has teamed up with her in their latest sales strategy, an augmented reality game, to help her win the grand-prize plane tickets. Money’s so tight Elena’s going to miss senior year spring break with her friends if she can’t win this game.
The girl Oliver’s fallen head-over-heels for online had better not be Elena Chestnut. She’s his angry, vindictive Latin tutor, the daughter of his dad’s business rival, and the one girl he’d never even think of kissing. She’s definitely not his online crush, because that girl is funny, sweet, and perfect.
When Oliver asks to reveal their names at the Valentine’s Day dance, their IRL relationship will either ruin what they have online, or they’ll discover just how thin the line between love and hate really is.
This sweet contemporary romance is sure to appeal to the sweet tooth in every reader. In small town North Pole (yes the town is named North Pole) there are two rival sports goods stores and the the children of these stores, Oliver and Elena, do not like each other. During a competition hosted by Oliver’s parents store Oliver and Elena start up an anonymous IM communication and slowly (and ever so heartwarmingly) they find out they may just like each other. The friendship, family connections and relationships in this book left me gushing. I really enjoyed the small town feel, reminiscent of Stars Hollow. This was exactly as advertised – a cute contemporary that could melt your heart.
