Received: Netgalley provided an e-arc in exchange for an honest review.
How to get over a heartbreak:
Step one: Eat your body weight in brownies.
Step two: Throw yourself into your dreams of becoming a famous writer.
Step three: Beg your (hottie) ex-neighbor to act as your fake boyfriend.
Step four: Skip step three unless you’re ready for some serious fallout.
After being dumped and humiliated over the summer, Cat Turner does what any sane girl would do. She asks bad boy Alex Locke to be her fake boyfriend and show the world (and her editor at the school newspaper) that she’s fine. Problem is, the more time she spends with Alex, the more she risks getting her heart broken. For real this time.
Opening Sentence: “Bennet Miller lay on the ground, blood pouring out of the gashing wound in his skull.”
“The Heartbreak Cure” reminds me why I love Entangles Crush stories. Cat Turner a girl who looses herself in her Writing and when a guy dates her for a week over the summer and puts a YouTube video about it saying it was for a “challenge” series he was doing her World gets turned upside down. In her humiliation to turns to her friend and the town bad boy Alex and asks him to be her fake boyfriend for a short time to get some of the talking away from the video and he agrees (the fact that Alex always wanted to be a bit closer to her then she was definitely aided his agreement).
This adorable novel is filled with sweet moments and awkward situations as Alex and Cat find that love may have always been an arms length away from them both.
I really enjoyed this short and sweet read. This kind of book where characters slowly find their ways together through fun little circumstances make me really happy. It’s always nice to see two characters who are friends finding themselves realizing they want so much more. It gives me all the warm and fuzzy feelings and I absolutely love it!
