1)Take things slow (her rule)

2)Make it believable (his rule)

After tragedy hit her family, Meg Matthews officially crossed the line from “good girl” to “bad girl.” Motorcycle? Check. Graffiti? Check. The only thing Meg hadn’t planned on was blackmail. Too bad now a certain infuriating boy holds Meg’s future in his hands…

When Luke Prescott—star pitcher and town golden boy—catches Meg vandalizing the school, she’s given two choices: face the consequences or enter into a fake relationship with him to get his parents and his ex off his back.
But as Meg and Luke grow closer, they both realize they’ve been keeping secrets from each other. Their fake relationship might be doomed from the start—if they can’t learn to open up to the one person they never thought they’d trust.






I am a big fan of the fake relationship trope, which was what drew me to this novel. Ultimately, it was the character journey and the complex characters that made this book a home run.

Meg and Luke are completely different characters with completely different backgrounds. This was what really endeared the characters to me. Their lives are more than just the developing relationship between them. Meg’s home life is strained with the loss of her sister and the emotional departure of her mother. On the other hand, Luke’s parents enjoy micromanaging his life without a concern for his wishes.

This was a sweet novel with amazing characters that I instantly fell in love with. The plot was fun and engaging with a romance that was truly swoon worthy.
