Lexie has always had a crush on Jake, her brother Colin's best friend. But she knows Jake thinks of her like a sister, and has never made a move. But when beautiful alpha girl Bree McKennis sets her sights on Jake, he has to come up with a plan to turn her down...without incurring the wrath of the most popular girl in school. That's when Colin comes up with the plan: Lexie can pretend to be Jake's girlfriend. But Lexie has never had a real boyfriend, let alone a pretend one! Can she manage to convince Jake that they're meant to be...and avoid getting killed by Bree McKennis?
I love how this book has the slightly predictable and typical romance story. You know, The boy-is-best friend-then-they-pretend-to-be-together-then-end-up-actually-liking-each-other-plot. I love how cheesy it is and it was packed with humor and drama and so much other mushy stuff. I admit I'm a romance type of reader. (all of us have one) Lexie is a girl with A LOT of insecurities but when Jake comes, all of those seem to disappear. Hands Down, all though the book was a short one, it definitely made a mark into my mind. And that's what I find very special in some books. They make you remember the scenes and makes you giggle and feel all tingly inside. Just like how a real romance story should be.
