Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains multiple PDAs, after-school detentions, and gambling on the side. Warning: betting on a boyfriend is bad for your health.
Zoe Cain knows that Grant Evertide is way out of her league. So naturally, she kisses him. Out of spite. Not only is Grant her brother's number-one nemesis, but he has zero interest in being tied down to one girl. She's shocked-and secretly thrilled-when they start spending more time together. Non-exclusively, of course, but that doesn't mean Zoe can't change his mind, one PDA and after-school detention at a time.
Zoe's brother claims Grant is trying to make her his "Ringer," an oh-so-charming tradition where a popular guy dates a non-popular girl until he hooks up with her, then dumps her.Zoe threatens to neuter Grant with hedge clippers if he's lying but Grant swears he isn't trying to trick her. Still, that doesn't mean Grant is the commitment type-even if winning a bet is on the line.

I loved everything about this book. It was cute, fun, and full of spunk.
Zoe is an awesome character. She does what she wants, and that’s that. She tries puzzling through who’s who in her new high school, and learns quickly that some people are jerks. But she also tries not to let social prejudice get int he way of what she wants to happen.
You think Grant is a complete d-bag at times, but maybe he’s not.  I loved seeing him squirm his way through his feelings for Zoe. He doesn’t want a relationship, but he can’t fight the feelings he has for Zoe.
And there are some many quotable moments in this book. I’ll share a few of my favorites.
“This is one of those suck-it-up-and-deal-with-it life moments.”
I flailed in frustration. “I hate those moments.”
“Sorry, unless you cover yourself in bubble wrap and live in a cave, they are unavoidable.”
“Eat.” Delia moved my plate closer to me. “No guy is worth skipping a meal for.”
“Life is short. Cake is good.”
“My mom says no guy is perfect, you just have to find one that makes you happy seventy percent of the time.”
That was an odd equation. “What about the other thirty percent?”
“That’s the time you fantasize about hitting him in the head with a frying pan.”
