I bought this book because I've read quite a few of the other stories in the Romantic Comedies Series and they are usually guaranteed to be a good read. HOWEVER, this one is horrible. I'm the type of person who gets a new book, sits down, and reads it from start to finish in one go. I have had this book for a little over a week now and I just cannot force myself to read all of the way through it. I've gotten 3/4ths of the way through, and I'm pretty sure I know how it's going to end, but the writing is terrible, the plot is boring, and you'd find more personality in an empty fish bowl than you would in these characters. I know it seems unfair to be judging this book so harshly, especially when I haven't even finished it, but... it's just so boring! I have stopped on page 216 and there has been basically ZERO romance so far. One of my biggest pet peeves is when the dialogue doesn't fit the characters, and the author is very guilty of this. The teenagers in this book don't talk like teenagers. They talk like old people who spend their free time reading the thesaurus.
I'm sorry, Whitney Lyles, but maybe you'd be more qualified flipping burgers at McDonald's than writing teen romance novels. Just sayin'.
