Kept Me Riveted To My Seat
4.5 out of 5 stars
I saw some hype around this book thanks to Natalie Naudus and some of the accounts I follow on Twitter. And for damn good reason. She Gets The Girl was insanely cute throughout and was one of those books that just had me smiling from almost beginning to end.
She Gets the Girl was a story that I think needed to be told – the different aspects of it almost read like a playbook (a five-step plan), and others were like, “oh god, when will they finally?” I kept finding myself smiling and rooting for the circumstances to finally align or the spark or momentary realization to hit, and without spoiling it – it took an almost frustratingly long time, but the story was so good I couldn’t stop reading it.
The authors really knew how to toy with me as I was reading this. But it was all in good fun. I think they knew exactly what they were doing and could write a story that both jumped off of the page and kept me glued to my seat as I was trying to figure out what and when everything was going to happen.
Overall, add in the excellent narration by Natalie Naudus & Valentina Ortiz, and this was a book that I loved every second of. It’s a cute story about two women finding themselves, learning their flaws and their likes, and figuring it out as they go. Not everything needs a plan, and even when there is one, life doesn’t always go by it.
She’s All That meets What If It’s Us in this swoon-worthy hate-to-love YA romantic comedy from number one New York Times best-selling coauthor of Five Feet Apart Rachael Lippincott and debut writer Alyson Derrick.
Alex Blackwood is a little bit headstrong, with a dash of chaos and a whole lot of flirt. She knows how to get the girl. Keeping her on the other hand…not so much. Molly Parker has everything in her life totally in control, except for her complete awkwardness with just about anyone besides her mom. She knows she’s in love with the impossibly cool Cora Myers. She just…hasn’t actually talked to her yet.
Alex and Molly don’t belong on the same planet, let alone the same college campus. But when Alex, fresh off a bad (but hopefully not permanent) breakup, discovers Molly’s hidden crush as their paths cross the night before classes start, they realize they might have a common interest after all. Because maybe if Alex volunteers to help Molly learn how to get her dream girl to fall for her, she can prove to her ex that she’s not a selfish flirt. That she’s ready for an actual commitment. And while Alex is the last person Molly would ever think she could trust, she can’t deny Alex knows what she’s doing with girls, unlike her.
As the two embark on their five-step plans to get their girls to fall for them, though, they both begin to wonder if maybe they’re the ones falling…for each other.
