About the Book: Lexie has had a crush on her brother's best friend Jake since they first met. When popular girl Bree sets her sights on Jake, Lexie is sure there is no way she could ever win Jake over. But Jake has no interest in Bree and needs a way to get her off his back without incurring the wrath of the popular girl-so a plan is formed: Lexie will pretend to be Jake's girlfriend. If only their relationship wasn't pretend...
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I had enjoyed Save the Date by Tamara Summers so I decided to check this one out. Plus, I was in the mood for a fun book that I knew I would enjoy. And even though I didn't like it as much as Save the Date, it was still pretty cute.
He's With Me is a typical romantic comedy. The thing I did like was there was no annoying miscommunication between Jake and Lexie. Even though Bree tried to pull an evil trick on them, they were smart enough not to fall for it. The plot was more about Lexie and Jake realizing they liked each other, not getting mad at each other because of what someone said. So for that, it was a refreshing romantic comedy!
It's a light, fast read and perfect if you're looking for a summer romance. There's not a lot of depth, but it's cute read. I really liked Lexie-she loves to read and even named her dogs, Thorn and Alanna, after characters in her favorite book. (Extra points if you know what book they are from!)
If you're not a fan of romance, I wouldn't pick this one up, since it is a romance-pure and simple. But if you're looking for a fun light read with a crush-worthy boy, give He's With Me a try.
