    I have always liked the Simon Pulse Romantic Comedies They are usually quick read, lighthearted fluff stories with quite a few laughs But this book was just a big no with a long list of problems 1 ValVal is just a plain, boring high school girl There is absolutely nothing about her that screams protagonist Worse than that, there s this whole bunch of guys in her school who are very attracted to her to the point of stalking for absolutely no reason It has never been implied that she is ei I have always liked the Simon Pulse Romantic Comedies They are usually quick read, lighthearted fluff stories with quite a few laughs But this book was just a big no with a long list of problems 1 ValVal is just a plain, boring high school girl There is absolutely nothing about her that screams protagonist Worse than that, there s this whole bunch of guys in her school who are very attracted to her to the point of stalking for absolutely no reason It has never been implied that she is either beautiful, smart or even remotely special she is a bumbling, awkward mess and not in a funny way As the book goes on, she only becomesinsufferable and even comes across as egotistical with her whole GNBP grand no boyfriend plan thing.2 Supporting charactersI have come to the conclusion that the author is just incapable of developing proper characters In example, Val s so called best friends, Becca and Kelly, are just as boring as Val and completely selfish Kelly has even gone so far as to sabotage Val just for a bet hey, here s an idea How about being a proper person and supporting your friend But no, she can t possibly do that because then she d have to wear an ugly dress and as we all know, dresses are permanent fixtures on your body, it s not like you can just take them off Therefore, losing that bet is basically suicide How can anyone possibly survive having to wear an ugly dress.3 Love interestAdam is actually a perfect match for Val in the sense that they are both incredibly dull You would think that an artsy emo hipster whatever that means would be at least a little bit interesting due to his non mainstream life choices think again Even IF Adam ended up being the most good looking guy in the world I m assuming that s the entire reason Val is attracted to him , his personality is a complete snooze fest This is a very bad quality to have, considering he is the romantic interest in a BOOK 4 Plot or lack thereof Every primary school student can tell you the basic recipe to a good plot intro, conflict, climax, falling action, denouement The author failed to follow even that simple recipe This book was a complete mess of blah Girl dumps boyfriend, meets a guy she might like but not really all that much , continually struggles with her need to be romantically attached to someone even though the boy she s interested in isn t even worth losing a bet for , continues her life in a very awkward and boring fashion leaving people to wonder why she is even the protagonist view spoiler call off the bet that the whole plot is based on and end up with the boring as hell romantic interest shocker hide spoiler Don t even bother reading that paragraph, I ll sum it up for you Blah That s all this book is it s just blah.5 The dialogueThe author of this book is a terrible writer I have never read any of her other work and I pray I will never have to The only thing worse than the personalities of the characters in this book is the way they talk to each other They are so robotic and methodical in everything they say that it leaves me to wonder if the author even knows how human interaction works It is this awkward way of speaking that makes the jokes so very bad the jokes were already so unfunny to start with but throw in the author s special inhuman touch and we have utterly cringeworthy.Conclusion, this is a boring book with terrible characters and even worse dialogue I would not recommend it to anybody I regret the money I spent on it if anything, I should have been paid to read it

    I just started an hour ago and looks like it s going good I just hope it doesn t turn out to be so cliche at the end, if you know what I mean

    Val thought she had the perfect boyfriend in Dave After all, it was definitely the longest she d gone out with one guy, so that must mean it s special And it was until she caught Dave making out with another girl in the parking lot of her high school.Now available , Val is suddenly bombarded with date offers from guys around the school, many of whom she doesn t even know When her friends point out that this is because she s suddenly on the market Val thought she had the perfect boyfriend in Dave After all, it was definitely the longest she d gone out with one guy, so that must mean it s special And it was until she caught Dave making out with another girl in the parking lot of her high school.Now available , Val is suddenly bombarded with date offers from guys around the school, many of whom she doesn t even know When her friends point out that this is because she s suddenly on the market , which has never been true for her forthan a week, Val realizes she s been a bit too focused on being a girlfriend and hasn t focused enough on being herself.She decides to swear off boys for the next month, and her friends make it interesting by making it a bet Winner gets to wear real diamonds to prom loser has to wear the ugliest purple prom dress and matching heels ever made.Unfortunately, it all gets way too complicated when Val meets Adam He s arty and normally not her type, but there s definite chemistry there So what simportant The possibility of true love or avoiding having to wear the nastiest dress on the planet Final thoughts I grabbed this paperback from the giveaway pile at work It s obvious cotton candy and has no literary merit whatsoever However, it s fluffy and light on the brain There are a few problems with pacing and time seems to speed up and slow down without making much sense, but it s easy to read and a good brain cleanser, especially when I ve got a few paranormal and dystopia novels on my to read list Think of this book as a light sorbet for the brain

    Hard to Get was a cute, light read The writing was simple and easy to get into The only negative aspect was the predictability of the storyline However, I did really like the characters Val was sweet, intelligent and was always surrounded by her supporting best friends I love when the main character has a group of best girl friends I, on the other hand have close friends but best friends Nope So, it s nice to see a group of girls who love each other unconditionally Val was going through Hard to Get was a cute, light read The writing was simple and easy to get into The only negative aspect was the predictability of the storyline However, I did really like the characters Val was sweet, intelligent and was always surrounded by her supporting best friends I love when the main character has a group of best girl friends I, on the other hand have close friends but best friends Nope So, it s nice to see a group of girls who love each other unconditionally Val was going through a rough break up and she made a bet with her friends that she wouldn t deal with guys until the end of the year Ha, that s easier said then done Once word got out that she was single, all hell broke loose She was bombarded with gifts and stalkers who practically threw themselves at her At that point, I was like oh come on that doesn t happen in real life, but it is fiction after all.My favorite part of the book was when Val met Adam, a guy that she normally wouldn t go for I thought he was adorable He reminded me of those punk guys who wear skinny jeans and are artistically gifted You know which ones I m talking about I enjoyed seeing Val fight the urge to like him because of her bet Overall, it s a nice, quick read with a cliche storyline But if you are looking for a book to relax your brain cells after reading an emotional novel, pick this up

    This book was quite cute, but I really thought it should have ended differently Val has JUST broken up with her boyfriend of like 6 or so months after she caught him kissing another girl, and she is suddenly bombarded that s a good word by gifts, texts, facebook friend invites, and other crap from guys at her school, as if they d been anxiously awaiting for a day when Val was freeBut Val is understandably upset by Dave s betrayal, and could use some time to get over things, you know S This book was quite cute, but I really thought it should have ended differently Val has JUST broken up with her boyfriend of like 6 or so months after she caught him kissing another girl, and she is suddenly bombarded that s a good word by gifts, texts, facebook friend invites, and other crap from guys at her school, as if they d been anxiously awaiting for a day when Val was freeBut Val is understandably upset by Dave s betrayal, and could use some time to get over things, you know So she decides to swear off guys for a month Her two best friends make a bet of it the winner gets to wear a super fancy diamond jewelry set to prom and the loser has to wear a REALLY ugly purple 80s prom dress Except then Val finds out and becomes part of the bet, so there are either going to be two winners one wears the earrings, one the necklace or two losers one wears the uglodress for the first half of prom and the other the second So yadda yadda, she ends up doing this project with Adam and totally falls for him But then she s BOUND AND DETERMINED to stick to this stupid plan And what ends up happening SPOILER ALERT is that her friends find out how upset she is over this guy and both back out of the bet month challenge But what I think SHOULD have happened is that she should have said, Screw the embarrassment we will feel in wearing purple tafeta I want this really amazing guy as my boyfriend and worn the purple nastiness for half of prom I thought that would have been 1 funnier this IS a Simon Romantic COMEDY, after all and 2 beenappropriate for her personality issues that she obviously needed to get over Plus, I don t know I felt like Adam would have should have beenunderstanding about her personal challenge He sorta reacted like a girl Of course, the book was written by a girl, so shrugs So yeah, 3.5 stars Not the best of the series, but cute nonetheless
