I received an Advanced Reader's Copy from the Publisher via NetGalley for voluntary review consideration.
“Operation Prom Date is go for launch.”
This was a YA contemporary romance story, featuring a plan to go with a quarterback to prom.
I liked Kate and Cooper in this, and it was sweet how they both slowly fell in love with each other without even realising it.
The storyline in this was about Cooper helping Kate to snag the quarterback who she had a crush on, but instead falling in love with her himself. It was all quite predictable, but it was still an enjoyable story, although the pace was a bit slow. We also got alternating points of view, and a very steamy first kiss!
The ending to this was a happily ever after.
6.5 out of 10
This is a great cute, sweet read. The main characters Kate and Cooper are so likeable, funny and perfect together.
If you like a YA read that's light, funny and easy reading that makes you smile this is totally for you.
I'm now going to check out Cindi's backlist of her books

What I Loved: So there wasn't much 'new' happening in this book that hasn't happened before, guy helps girl land the guy of her dreams while girl is not realizing she's actually falling for guy. What makes this one a bit different is that the guy (Cooper) doesn't already have a crush on Kate before they get started. So watching them both get sucker punched with the reality was fun.
Cindi has written some major chemistry between Kate and Cooper, even from the beginning Cooper is pretty much swoon worthy, and you're ready to leave whats-his-face in the dust. As it should be. But the first kiss...watch out for that one, its a dousy! :) Cooper was so focused and determined, but I loved it when his jealous streak came out. Kate was an intro-extrovert I guess. She was kind of a loner, but at the same time had this great personality. She is a fangirl, like most of us booknerds are, so there's that too.
Not So Much: I mentioned it above, but this book really isn't new. I kind of wish there were more un-redeemable qualities about Mick, besides his unfortunate name and just being a typical teenage jock. But really that's all I can come up with.
The Verdict: This is a fun, sappy, super swoon-worthy read. It took me...eh, a day to finish it (if you count 2am as the same day, that is). It was very clean and appropriate for the YA genre, but does not skip out on the heat between Kate and Cooper. I loved it!
I am shipping Kaper so freaking hard, I can't even tell you. Like seriously, this book was just everything my little YA-loving heart was looking for. It was fairly light, with just enough depth to give it interest. And while I don't think you have to be a fandom lover to enjoy this book, if you are, I think you will definitely fall in love with Kate. I'm not even a major fandom lover, but I totally get shipping couples, and wanting them to be together, and being angry at the writers for drawing it out. And in some ways Ms. Madsen kind of fulfilled that longing and irritation and GAHness with Kate and Cooper. You could just tell that they were perfect for each other, but of course she had to put them through the wringer on the way to HEA. I'm not always a fan of misunderstandings and all that jazz, but it really fit in this storyline and worked for the story that was being told (if that makes any sense at all)...or at least it did for me.
And you know how my favourite part of any story is the characters? Well Kate and Cooper were amazeballs. Not without flaws for sure, and not without feeling like authentic teenagers, but I just really loved them both. My heart broke for Kate and how she came to be the person she was. Not just with her father, but also the circumstances with her friends. I've been that girl with no friends b/c I wasn't willing to change myself to fit in. It's all well and good to be solid with who you are and to put that above other things, but it can be very lonely. And she was just so freaking quirky and adorable!! She made me laugh so much. Seriously though, she really reminded me a lot of myself (right down to the lost father). And I enjoyed that what really drew her to Mick was her perception that he was more sweet than he seemed, based on his moments of kindness. It was a bit of a bummer that she didn't catch on as quickly to how changing herself wasn't the way to go, and that maybe he wasn't worth it, but sometimes we see what we want to see and we want things so badly that we don't make the connections until later.
And then there was Cooper. OMG, book boyfriend city man. He was just so sweet and thoughtful, and dealing with his own set of struggles, and just trying to survive in a way. I loved being in his head and reading about his thoughts. He was an interesting guy b/c he had this popularity in some ways, but didn't seem to realize it. And I adored his little bit of nerdiness, talk about swoon!! My only real complaint with his story was the resolution with his father. It didn't feel authentic, b/c his father really felt borderline mentally abusive to me...or just too toxic anyways.
Honestly though, the star of this book was Kate and Cooper together. Seeing them experience the tummy tingles for each other, and those breathless moments, and the friendship that developed...GAH! It was just perfect. My romance loving heart was so freaking satisfied, I had tingles just reading about them. And the climax was perfection. It just read exactly as I wanted it to. And then we even got some delicious epilogueness!! I love epilogueness. It was so satisfying.
So basically this story was just tailor made for me. Love. Adore. So much shipping.
The premise for the book is fairly simple and yes something you may find on other books, but the writing is what makes it unique, they way the author tells the story. I loved that this story is told from two POV's, I really, really like reading from the guy's perspective because often when you don't have it you wonder what he's thinking or feeling, what else is on his mind and this time I didn't have to because we had it, and I quite like our hero, Cooper, he's great, and very dreamy I should add.
As for our heroine, it really is hard not to love her because she's a total fangirl so I can totally connect with that! she's funny and quirky, I loved reading about her trying to explain some things to Cooper, it was adorable, and seeing how their relationship starts to develop was a joy to read!
If you like romance you really can't miss this book!!
