Adorkable (ah-dor-kuh-bul): Descriptive term meaning to be equal parts dorky and adorable. For reference, see Sally Spitz.
Seventeen-year-old Sally Spitz is done with dating. Or at least, she’s done with the horrible blind dates/hookups/sneak attacks her matchmaking bestie, Hooker, sets her up on. There’s only so much one geek girl and Gryffindor supporter can take.
Her solution: she needs a fake boyfriend. And fast.
Enter Becks, soccer phenom, all-around-hottie, and Sally’s best friend practically since birth. When Sally asks Becks to be her F.B.F. (fake boyfriend), Becks is only too happy to be used. He’d do anything for Sal–even if that means giving her PDA lessons in his bedroom, saying she’s “more than pretty,” and expertly kissing her at parties.
The problem: Sally’s been in love with Becks all her life–and he’s completely clueless.
This book features two best friends, one special edition Yoda snuggie, countless beneath-the-ear kisses and begs the question:
Who wants a real boyfriend when faking it is so much more fun?
Because I’m a messy little thing, I read Ninja Girl before this one. If I had read this one first, then Ninja Girl would be thrown at 2nd place because this one is a lot cuter! I may have found a The Duff replacement you guys. A little back story, when I’m sad I read The Duff because it brightens my day up and there is something about the fake relationship trope thag appeals to me so this find is so beautiful for me. I have a The Duff substitute now! *happy dance* I can’t say much for the nonspoiler part, just that you all need to read this because it’s so freaking cute!
Giving this gem a solid 4 royal stars for the joy it brought to me when I’m so down at work last night.
If you are in this part but have not yet read the book then I’m giving you the chance to escape because I have a lot to say for this spoilery part.
First point for the book? The Matchmaking. I was so irritated by it. If I were Spitz, I would have gone berserk on Hooker from the first time. If a girl wants to be single, let her be.
Second, the guy girl friendship. Even though in this situation, they love each other secretly, Girls and boys can be just friends. Never assume that they have a relationship unless they come out and say otherwise.
Third, the nice guy trope. I was kind of annoyed at Becks because he lets anyone get cozy with him even if Sal was there. You don’t love someone secretly then let other people especially slutty girls touch you like that. That just builds doubt of your sincerity to the girl you love.
Fourth, the fake boyfriend ruse. Damn you guys, Becks made my ovaries melt on this one. I’m here screaming just get together for real already! It was very cute but because our little Sal didn’t think she was worthy of Becks, didn’t think that he’d look that way at her. So very wrong in so many ways but very relatable.
Fifth and final one, the grand gesture. It’s not like everyday that a guy breaks his routines and superstition for a girl. And really, Sal just wanted Beck too see that he’s so much more talented, with or without the beard.
And for the highlight of the book : Ash. Damn Ash you are way hotter in this book than Ninja Girl. Here you were so caring and charming and supporting, you are all that in Ninja Girl but I don’t know, you were just way way gorgeous here. I love it!
So that’s all you guys. If you have read this book, comment your thoughts below. Stay awesome! 😘
