PUBLISHER: Entangled Teen – Crush


DATE PUBLISHED: 02nd July 2018


PAGES: 270







All her life, Katie has been chosen last for everything: the last picked on the playground, the last picked by her absent father, and definitely the last picked by boys—even her secret crush, Alex, friend-zoned her. This senior year, Katie is determined to come first.

But then Alex asks her to help him find a date?!

Alex has been living life in the fast lane, but he’s ready to slow down—with a girlfriend. The last person on earth he’d consider? The girl his brother developed serious feelings for before he died: Katie. The only way Alex is going to get over Katie is by falling for someone new. And who better to help him find his new crush than the girl he can’t stop thinking about?

What can possibly go wrong?






A cute contemporary romance novel in the vein of Kasie West and Morgan Matson. The two protagonists, Alex and Katie are best friends, gamers, nerds and Katie is very much in love with Alex. Obviously this is going to lead to many fun times and hijinks when Alex asks for Katie’s help to get him a date.

This was an extremely quick read that I thoroughly enjoyed. It delivered exactly what was promised. I loved getting both perspectives within this novel. Understanding the hesitations and motivations of both Alex and Katie was very useful. At times I wanted to push these two together so much. There were so many assumptions from both Alex and Katie and situations that were misconstrued.

Overall, this is a fun and nerdy book with a friends to more trope. The characters had some great development through the novel and while the plot could be somewhat predictable there was so much to really enjoy. The perfect mix of nerdy goodness and romance. A fantastic time for the nerd in all of us.
