Any Boy But You Review...


Elena Chestnut has been chatting with an anonymous boy late into the night. It’s a very You’ve Got Mail situation, and she has no idea who he is. He can’t be Oliver Prince, hot-and-bashful son of the family running the rival sporting goods store. Their fancy sales strategies are driving Elena’s family out of business. Elena’s mystery boy has teamed up with her in their latest sales strategy, an augmented reality game, to help her win the grand-prize plane tickets. Money’s so tight Elena’s going to miss senior year spring break with her friends if she can’t win this game.

The girl Oliver's fallen head-over-heels for online had better not be Elena Chestnut. She's his angry, vindictive Latin tutor, the daughter of his dad’s business rival, and the one girl he’d never even think of kissing. She’s definitely not his online crush, because that girl is funny, sweet, and perfect.

When Oliver asks to reveal their names at the Valentine’s Day dance, their IRL relationship will either ruin what they have online, or they’ll discover just how thin the line between love and hate really is.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains swearing, snowball fights, and sexual tension that could melt the North Pole. Read at your own risk.

REVIEW!!!

This book has a Romeo and Juliet feel to it.
 
Elena Chestnut and Oliver Prince come from rival families.  But when Oliver’s family store comes out with a new game that is similar to Pokemon Go Elena signs up to win the grand prize.  Oliver also signs up to keep an eye on the game that his sister is now in charge of.  The two of them start up an online flirtation with no idea as to who they are talking to.  Does this flirtation save both families?  Do they let the rival get between their families again?
 
I love R & J but this book left me reeling.  The characters and plot were absolutely fabulous.  I didn’t want to stop reading it even to go home for the day.  There were new twists at every single turn and I absolutely loved it.  I did get a little confused a few times as to who knew what about different things but it didn’t hugely affect the story.  It flowed really well and was paced impeccably.  I adored the authors writing style as well.
 
I will be keeping my eyes open for the next book to take place in North Pole.  Such fascinating people to hear about!
