1 ill-fated hot dog costume. 2 former BFFs. 11 days to seduce a boy.

Avery James doesn’t believe in romance—she’s studied enough biology to know that love is nothing more than hormones and chemicals. Besides, she has more practical goals in mind, namely saving up for a summer humanitarian program in Costa Rica. But when her Diggity Dog House supervisor denies her a raise and Avery finds herself $500 dollars short for the trip of a lifetime, Avery has no choice but to accept an unexpected offer. The deal? She must steal her arch nemesis Hannah’s boyfriend before prom, giving Avery eleven days to seduce Zac Greeley.

Avery is sure the job will be easy. But a few midnight comedy shows and spontaneous dance parties (not to mention one particularly intimate carwash) later, Avery finds herself questioning everything she’s ever thought about love. Could Zac’s signature cherry-lime Slurpees be causing brain freeze, or is Avery actually starting to fall for him?

Will Avery be able to steal Zac away from Hannah before he steals Avery’s heart?


If there was one thing I hated more than anything else in this world, it was Giant Hot Dog Day.


“What do you want?” Hannah asked, not bothering with a hello.

My mouth had gone dry and I licked my cracked lips. The check weighed heavily in my pocket, taunting me. Could I give up Costa RIca for Zac Greeley?

“I-” I wanted to say the words, but I couldn’t force them out. What was I doing? Was I really about to give up everything I had worked so hard for?


This was a kindle freebie, so I couldn’t pass it up. It sounds interesting and I’m excited to start this one soon. The cover is really pretty and the premise of the story sounds interesting. I’m curious about how the relationship will turn out once the guy finds out about the deal, or if he finds out.

What’s on your reading schedule for this weekend? 

I hope you have a nice weekend.

Happy Reading!
