Entangled Teen: Crush

Trina Clemons needed the money. Why else would she—the most organized, prepared student in school—spend the summer as a nanny and partner with the biggest slacker ever? Now she's ready to tackle nannyhood with her big binder of research and schedules. Just don't ask her about the secret job of “fixing” the bad habits of a certain high school player…

Slade Edmunds prefers easy hook-ups, and Trina is definitely not his type. She's all structure and rules, while Slade wants to just have fun. Fortunately, Trina has no idea about the bet Slade made with his best friend that he can totally get her to unwind by the end of summer…

Then the weirdest thing happens. There's chemistry. A lot of it.
But nothing gets between a boy and a girl like a big, fat secret…

From the blurb, you might expect a rather cheesy story with the *** going on and the good girl with the bad boy.

But the nanny job actually adds a freshness to the story which was quite funny and endearing at times.

Throughout the story, there aren't many big blow ups and it's fairly low-key yet the story remains entertaining.

The development of the relationship between Slade and Trina is slow and simmering so do not expect to go in and find a "boom", it takes quite a while actually.

They both bring out the best of one another yet you know they both harbor secrets which might or rather will blow up in their faces eventually.

When that happens? *dun dun dun* ;-)

This was a story told in alternate pov that followed up each other quickly which caused for a pretty quick read that kept me entertained without adding too much drama.

Lisa Brown Roberts still hasn't recovered from the teenage trauma of nearly tweezing off both eyebrows and having to pencil them in for an entire school year. This and other angst-filled memories inspire her to write YA books about navigating life's painful and funny dramas, and falling in love along the way.

Her almost forever home is Colorado, though she occasionally pines for the days when she lived within walking distance of the Pacific Ocean. Her house is full of books, boys, several four-legged prima donnas, and lots of laughter.
