Disclaimer: This book contains a villain pretending to be a hero, a hero pretending to be a villain, a disco-dancing heroine, two overprotective sidekicks, a little bit of bad language, and a whole lot of swoony kissing.
Spirit committee leader Mandy Pennington is secretly in love with her best friend, Gus, but when he hooks up with her archenemy at a party, she decides to win him over once and for all. She just doesn’t know how. But who better to help than hot loner Caleb Torrs?
Caleb’s got his own problems, but when he sees Mandy pining over Gus at a party, he thinks she’s finally smoked the spirit stick and lost her mind. Maybe he has, too, because he just asked Mandy to be his fake girlfriend. She’ll get her loser friend’s attention, and he’ll get his stalker ex off his back. It’s a win-win.
But soon one fake date blends into the next and before he knows it, he actually wants to kiss Mandy. For real. Too bad their plan is working, and Gus is finally noticing the one girl Caleb just might be falling for…

What do you call a book that you have a major thing for? Is it my love bookfriend? Or should I go with the classic and say that I want to marry it? Cool? That works. ‘Cause I do! I want to marry this book!
Lisa Brown Roberts totally sucked me into this book with her super comfortable characters. The atmosphere and personalities flow so seamlessly that you won’t notice how much time has passed before you are turning the last page. With a flooded market it feels that snappy, sassy, realistic teen romances are harder to find. Organically driven plot lines and engaging dialogue often are sacrificed for higher word counts creating these exposition heavy stories. I love when my stories are told to me by showing me what has happened and not told to me as a summary. When done properly you get an epic and worthy book.
Hello Epic and Worthy Book, I am your bride.
Okay so let’s say we are shipping CaNdy. That would be Caleb and Mandy; Caleb...
resisting the rebel irresistibly uses the opposites attracts theory of story-telling. even better for me, it also uses the fake-relationship-turns-real method. obviously, i loved it. it has all the right ingredients and characters you can root for.
i mean, this plot is right up my alley. bad boy caleb torrs can't help being sucked in by mandy pennington's orbit of hippy-dippy disco cheer. there's no reason he should feel compelled to help her, but he is. and he's also really attracted to her even though she is not his type. she's a joiner. he's a loner. she's been madly in love with her best friend from kindergarten, he's got a stalker ex-girlfriend. this is how fake relationships are born. she'll get a boy to make her friend jealous, he'll get a girl to let the ex know he's moved on.
both caleb and mandy end up getting way more than they expected when they launch their crazy plan. for one, caleb can't pretend to be the boyfriend of the person planning spirit...
Man, I loved this book...It's a light read, with just the right amount of funny, sweet and believable. What I liked most was the idea that a girl with issues (won't give them out) was not a victim of bullying, but someone everyone loved. That is the twist that really got me. I fell for the characters, wanted to be in their midst. That's what books should do; engage the reader, want them to believe...and hope...Love this writer!
