PUBLISHER: Entangled – Crush
DATE PUBLISHED: 13th March 2017
Kate ships tons of fictional couples, but IRL her OTP is her and Mick, the hot quarterback she’s crushed on since, like, forever. With only one semester left of senior year, it’s now or never if she wants to land him in time for prom. Since she’s flirtationally challenged, she enlists Cooper Callihan, the guy who turned popular seemingly overnight but who used to be a good friend.
Cooper lives and breathes rowing, but his partner just broke his wrist. When he remembers Kate’s good with a set of oars, he strikes a deal: help him train, and he’ll make sure her crush notices her. Only he didn’t know how addicting spending time with her would be. Or how the more successful the Operation is, the more jealousy he experiences.
The mission has been set. The troops have their marching orders. But what if the target is the wrong guy all along?
This is that cute little contemporary high school fake romance which just give you happy little goosebumps. This book does not try to be anything it is not and I really appreciate that in this book. The story is told from alternating first-person POV’s of Kate and Cooper. I found it refreshing to see both perspectives of this fake relationship as it develops into something more.
Kate is a character readers can relate to. She is a fangirl at heart. She has the lingo down and loves to ship unlikely romances which just gives me the warm fuzzies. This really endears Kate to me. I was just waiting on baited breath for that moment when my ship would come true.
The development of the two protagonists was the star of this book. Operation Prom Date stuck to what readers love about contemporary YA romances and it works. I am in love with the simple elegance and heartwarming moments that were prominent in this book.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Cindi Madsen is a USA Today Bestselling author of contemporary romance and young adult novels. She sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children.
