Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Starts
Release Date: September 14, 2015
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
I wanted to start off by saying despite the semi low rating, this book was really cute, sweet and well written. I just wished there was a bit more oomph to it.
Paige Westfeld is the ultimate perfectionist, with dreams of going to med school at Standard. She is fourth in her class, but that still doesn’t seem good enough, especially with the pressure her parents are putting on her. To say she is stressing would be an understatement, and when she receives a D on her calculus test, she is pretty sure her dreams are over.
Then she has a chance encounter with Ben Franklin, who is third in the class and a whiz in calculus. When Paige begs him to tutor her, offering him money, he is tempted to agree. Coming from a single parent home, they aren’t doing the best money wise, and Ben is saving for Texas A&M. However, as nice as extra cash sounds, there is something he wants more from Paige- a date with her best friend Zoey.
Paige agrees, even though she doesn’t think Ben is Zoey’s type, and the more time they spend together, the more Paige starts to realize he might just be her type. And while Ben is suppose to be tutoring Paige to get closer to Zoey, suddenly Paige is the one he is thinking of.
While I thought this book would be completely predictable, there were a few nice twists and turns along the way. The characters were nice, each with a dept to them and each with their own voice. I even started to really like Zoey, who first came across kind of shallow. There is an epilogue from Zoey’s POV, which makes me believe there will be a book from her POV.
