Thank you so much to Avon and Edelweiss for the e-ARC!

Danika Brown knows what she wants: professional success, academic renown, and an occasional roll in the hay to relieve all that career-driven tension. But romance? Been there, done that, burned the T-shirt. Romantic partners, whatever their gender, are a distraction at best and a drain at worst. So Dani asks the universe for the perfect friend-with-benefits—someone who knows the score and knows their way around the bedroom. When brooding security guard Zafir Ansari rescues Dani from a workplace fire drill gone wrong, it’s an obvious sign: PhD student Dani and ex-rugby player Zaf are destined to sleep together. But before she can explain that fact, a video of the heroic rescue goes viral. Now half the internet is shipping #DrRugbae—and Zaf is begging Dani to play along. Turns out, his sports charity for kids could really use the publicity. Lying to help children? Who on earth would refuse? Dani’s plan is simple: fake a relationship in public, seduce Zaf behind the scenes. The trouble is, grumpy Zaf’s secretly a hopeless romantic—and he’s determined to corrupt Dani’s stone-cold realism. Before long, he’s tackling her fears into the dirt. But the former sports star has issues of his own, and the walls around his heart are as thick as his… um, thighs. Suddenly, the easy lay Dani dreamed of is more complex than her thesis. Has her wish backfired? Is her focus being tested? Or is the universe just waiting for her to take a hint?

When I found out about Get A Life, Chloe Brown, a book with a main character that shared a whole ton of my qualities (including my name!), I knew I had to read it. I read it and fell absolutely in love. Then, I read another one of Hibbert’s books Work For It, and fell completely in love with that one too. So, I was very eager to read another one of her books!

Date Me, Bryson Keller by Kevin van Whye

*Spoiler free*

Thank you Random House Books for Young Readers and NetGalley for the e-ARC!

Everyone knows about the dare: Each week, Bryson Keller must date someone new–the first person to ask him out on Monday morning. Few think Bryson can do it. He may be the king of Fairvale Academy, but he’s never really dated before. Until a boy asks him out, and everything changes. Kai Sheridan didn’t expect Bryson to say yes. So when Bryson agrees to secretly go out with him, Kai is thrown for a loop. But as the days go by, he discovers there’s more to Bryson beneath the surface, and dating him begins to feel less like an act and more like the real thing. Kai knows how the story of a gay boy liking someone straight ends. With his heart on the line, he’s awkwardly trying to navigate senior year at school, at home, and in the closet, all while grappling with the fact that this “relationship” will last only five days. After all, Bryson Keller is popular, good-looking, and straight . . . right? Kevin van Whye delivers an uplifting and poignant coming-out love story that will have readers rooting for these two teens to share their hearts with the world–and with each other.

I hadn’t seen this book at all until my friend (Cody is awesome) showed it to me. Just from the, this book seemed like something I wanted to read. It’s very obviously queer, which is amazing. Plus, it looks absolutely freaking adorable. A boy joins in a dare, asking out a super popular boy. Kai is closeted and he thinks Bryson is straight. The relationship only lasts five days, but Kai is starting to fall for Bryson. It sounds incredible and I’m so happy I got the chance to read it. Trigger warnings: homophobia, forced outing
