"This book had me swooning, laughing, and crying - a truly enjoyable read." -Brett Jonas, Goodreads Reviewer

Emma has been best friends with Eli since she moved to his neighborhood ten years ago. Tired of being cast in the role of the girl next door, Emma creates a fake Facebook profile in the hopes of starting an online friendship with Eli, which would hopefully lead to more. Like...way more. From friend request to In a Relationship--it all seemed so completely logical when she'd planned it.

Eli can't figure out what Emma is up to. He’s pretty sure she's the one behind the Facebook profile, but then again, why would she do something so drastic instead of just admitting she wants to be more than friends? And who the heck is this new guy he saw her with? Eli starts to think that just maybe...he missed his chance with the girl next door.

Two best friends, one outlandish ruse. Their status is about to become way more than It’s Complicated...

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains one fake Facebook profile, two best friends who secretly crave each other, and a dreaded sex talk with parents…boy crush in the room included. Pushing a relationship beyond the friend zone has never been so crazy…

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could Have Been Better Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. From this summary, I assumed it would be more catfish and less ... everything else that was included in there. It seemed like the author wanted to make all these different stories and plot lines but they got jumbled and none of them were fleshed out enough to make any of them interesting. I liked the beginning and thought it was pretty good: Emma thought she had it all figured out but really Eli was already onto her. And I liked that Eli came to realize that he actually was in love with Emma. I also liked that their problems stemmed from miscommunication. THIS STORY LINE WAS FINE. It should have been the ONLY story line in the entire novel because once the weird suggestion of a double date and Jake came into play, the whole book went downhill. I didn't mind that Emma started to realize that maybe she wasn't as in love with Eli as she thought, but I wasn't a fan of how it came up. It was weird that Emma went from head over heels for Eli to "well maybe I like-like Jake more than Eli" after one date. I get that teens are flipflop-y -- I was a flipflop-y teen but not to that extent. It was like 0-100 in both directions. Jake was nice and I liked him but then he turned ... weird? I would have liked it a lot more if she got to know Jake more and started to have feelings for him slowly and then had to really decide between whether she wanted to be with Eli, who just realized he was in love with her, or Jake, who saw her from the "beginning" of their relationship. IDK I am sucker for that kind of shit. The first 47% of the book was good and the rest could have been better if it weren't for the added plotlines that went nowhere and the other characters serving as sounding boards for the main characters.
