Review/ The Heartbreak Cure

The Heartbreak Cure by Amanda Ashby
Publication Date: December 4, 2017
Publisher: Entangled Teen: Crush

How to get over a heartbreak:

Step one: Eat your body weight in brownies.

Step two: Throw yourself into your dreams of becoming a famous writer.

Step three: Beg your (hottie) ex-neighbor to act as your fake boyfriend.

Step four: Skip step three unless you’re ready for some serious fallout.

After being dumped and humiliated over the summer, Cat Turner does what any sane girl would do. She asks bad boy Alex Locke to be her fake boyfriend and show the world (and her editor at the school newspaper) that she’s fine. Problem is, the more time she spends with Alex, the more she risks getting her heart broken. For real this time.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a swoony bad boy who will melt your heart, brownies, and witty banter. One, two, or all three might prove addictive…

I quickly have to thank Chapter by Chapter Blog Tours for allowing me to be on this book tour and for graciously sending me a copy of the book to read for my review today.

I am so happy that I got the chance to read and review this because Amanda Ashby is a new to me author that I haven’t read up until today and after reading this I am curious to read more by her.

This was a super fun and quick read that I almost devoured in a day. I love reading books like this and I had a hard time to put it down when I had to.

Our main character is Cat who use to by just your typical high school girl but over the summer she got humiliated by her ex boyfriend on Youtube and dreads having to go back to school in the fall.  She needs to come up with a plan to show everyone at school especially the school’s newspaper editor that she is fine and this was just a bump in the road.

Enter next door neighbor, Alex. She convinces  him to be her pretend boyfriend out in public so that people will just get over her and move on to something else. Little does she realize but Alex has always liked Cat but never told her. I think deep down he know he would never be good enough for him and why risk a friendship. Will Cat feel the same way? Will she feel the same way in the end?

I loved reading this and watching the budding relationship forming and deep down you know Alex isn’t as bad as he seems. You can’t help but root for something to happen.

Reading this I realized that no matter the generation kids are still cruel and mean to each other. Looking back I don’t think I would survive being a kid in this generation with all the modern technology that is out there at least back in the day we had to relay on gossip and rumors with no proof to back it up.

If your looking for a light fun read then I have to recommend this.
