about

James Parson has a problem. His military dad is going to yank him out of his expensive boarding school if James doesn’t prove he’s no longer hooking up, pulling pranks, and charming his way out of consequences. What better way to show he’s now responsible than becoming the committed boyfriend of a U.S. diplomat’s daughter?

Level-headed, book-smart Edelweiss may have traveled the world thanks to her dad’s job, but when it comes to friends and boys, she knows exactly nothing. Newly enrolled in boarding school, Edel is now on a mission to learn it all. James says he’ll help her experience the ultimate high school life—if she’ll be his fake girlfriend. And fake is perfect, because he’s exactly the kind of player she’d never date.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains red-hot romance, all the feels, and a soul-mate bad boy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't put it down! Lizzy Charles is one of my favorite authors. Her books are an auto-buy for me, always! And IT HAD TO BE YOU might be my new favorite. Warning! Make sure you have time to read it all in one sitting. I sat down to read "just one chapter" before practicing my presentation for a conference ... and didn't put it down until hours later, after I'd finished reading the entire book and no longer had time to practice my presentation. (Actually, this turned out to be a good thing, because I was totally stressing about the presentation, and this book was just the right balance of thought-provoking moments and delicious fun to pull me out of my nervousness, so I was relaxed when it was time to present!) James and Edel are adorable, and the fake dating trope is one of my favorites. I'm usually frustrated by the miscommunications that keep conflict going in a story like this ("why don't they just TALK to each other??"), but James and Edel do talk. The way teens are likely to communicate. He tries to have a heart-to-heart with her, she misinterprets what he's saying and responds in a way that accidentally confirms his fear that they could never be a real couple. She tries to let him know that her feelings are real; he misreads her meaning and responds in a way that confirms HER biggest fears. Add in the friends, frenemies, and nemeses who pop in and out of the story in their attempts to help (or hurt) ... and you have a story that's equal parts realistic and total escapism. The perfect way to spend an enjoyable afternoon!
