Mia and Jake have known each other their whole lives. They’ve endured summer vacations, Sunday brunches, even dentist visits together. Their mothers, who are best friends, are convinced that Mia and Jake would be the perfect couple, even though they can’t stand to be in the same room together.
After Mia’s mom turns away yet another cute boy, Mia and Jake decide they’ve have had enough. Together, they hatch a plan to get their moms off their backs. Permanently. All they have to do is pretend to date and then stage the worst breakup of all time—and then they’ll be free.
The only problem is, maybe Jake and Mia don’t hate each other as much as they once thought…

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Mia is having a miserable year. Her mom is still pushing her to date the boy across the street. She hasn't been on a real date in a long time. Maybe fake dating is the answer?
Jake has known Mia his whole life. Their moms are pushing them to be together because its what they want. Why isn't anyone asking their kids what they have in mind? One kiss tears the whole plan apart........
This was such a surprise read! These characters are wonderful and funny. The banter is top notch. I loved the parts where they were so in sync you could tell they knew one another forever. A total slow burn but a thrilling ride.

Jenn Nguyen fell in love with books in third grade and spent the rest of her school years reading through lunchtime and giving up recess to organize the school library. She has a degree in business administration from the University of New Orleans and still lives in the city with her husband. Jenn spends her days reading, dreaming up YA romances, and binge watching Korean dramas all in the name of ‘research’.
