It’s not chemistry between Tinka Foster and Sam Anderson that made them agree to fake date. With her parents trying to set her up with an annoying pro-track golf student, and intentionally single Sam’s family pressuring him to bring a date to his brother’s wedding, they could both use a drama-free summer.
So it’s not his muscular arms and quick wit that makes Tinka suggest they tell everyone they’re both taken. Definitely not. And it’s not butterflies that makes a kiss for appearances during the lake party go on way too long—so long that Sam wishes it were real.
But Tinka keeps people at arm’s length—she’s always been second best, even to her parents. And her relationship-for-show could crush everything when she realizes she’s done with fake, pretend, and second-best.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains bikinis at the lake, a lot of making out in dark theaters, and a meet-cute you’ll read twice.

Sam and Tinka were too lovable and adorable for a trope that is always being used in YA books nowadays.
The writing style made me fall in love with these two MCs even though the plot was cliche in all the ways possible. Their chemistry was just so undeniable. It was a very enjoyable Ya romance read and I really felt everything that each of the characters were going through. I felt it when they disliked each other, I felt it when they were slowly falling in love and I was getting the feels in every scene that I was suppose to. It was all just so on point!
If you asked me what went wrong, it’s probably that I was just looking for more originality when it came to the plot. That’s it. Everything else was just so sweet, cute, amusing, entertaining, and enjoyable. I couldn’t really ask for more when it came to the writing style.
The author did a wonderful job.
