Any Boy But You
Received from Netgalley
ANY BOY BUT YOU by Julie Hammerle is the first book in the North Pole, Minnesota series.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains swearing, snowball fights, and sexual tension that could melt the North Pole. Read at your own risk.
ANY BOY BUT YOU is the story of Elena and Oliver. Their families are rivals as both families own sporting goods stores, but lately both stores are really really slow. Oliver comes up with a Pokemon Go type of game to bring some traffic to the Prince store. Elena knows she has to come up with something to help her family as well, but right now she has accepted Mrs. Prince’s offer to tutor Oliver………her arch enemy. Elena agrees to do it because she wants to earn money for Spring Break and knows her parents won’t be able to help her.
I really felt bad for Elena and Oliver. They didn’t know why they were supposed to hate each other, just that they did. They had no idea what the history behind the feud was and when they find out, they are shocked. At the same time, they start texting each other on the game APP but don’t know who they are talking to as they have user names not real names. I really enjoyed the banter between Elena and Oliver and I totally got why she would think ANY BOY BUT YOU. What will happen when they find out the truth of who they are texting? Will their feelings of hate grow or will they pursue how they really feel?
ANY BOY BUT YOU is a very cute, sweet, Teen romance. I really enjoyed learning the history behind the feud of these two families. If you like You’ve Got Mail and Gilmore Girls you are going to love this story. I’ve never read anything by Julie Hammerle, but I really enjoyed ANY BOY BUT YOU and look forward to reading more by this refreshing author
