by Jennifer Honeybourn
Published by: Swoon Reads
Publication date: July 18th 2017
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult


Sixteen-year-old Quinn Hardwick’s having a rough summer. Her beloved grandmother has been put into a home, her dad’s gambling addiction has flared back up and now her worst enemy is back in town: Wesley James, former childhood friend—until he ruined her life, that is.

So when Wesley is hired to work with her at Tudor Tymes, a medieval England themed restaurant, the last thing Quinn’s going to do is forgive and forget. She’s determined to remove him from her life and even the score all at once—by getting him fired.

But getting rid of Wesley isn’t as easy as she’d hoped. When Quinn finds herself falling for him, she has to decide what she wants more: to get even, or to just get over it.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

I really, really, enjoyed reading this book. It’s one of the first books I’ve read in a while that I really enjoyed. It allowed me to escape reality for a little bit and have a bit of “high school fun.”  The days when your problems revolved around friends, boys, work, and family, those were the days “insert sarcasm.” Seriously though, it was fun to go back to my high school days because I was a fellow band nerd, so reading a story involving band members and band trips is FUN to me! I loved it!

While this book has a serious undertone, overall, it’s fun, it’s light, and it’s sweet. There are some really good feel good moments, some great back and forth attitude and banter, and some really good humor.  This is a young adult book, so take my previous descriptions with the proper meaning for this category. It was still a great read and one that I would be okay letting my daughter read.

I really wanted more out of the book and / or the ending. I am not meaning the author just left the story hanging or didn’t provide enough detail, because I think she did a perfect job. However, I wasn’t ready to be done with their story. I wanted to know more and I wanted to know more of their future. I was definitely not ready to be done with their story. I applaud the author for making the reader want more without feeling like they didn’t get enough while they were reading.

Would I recommend this story to you? Absolutely! If you’re a Y/A fan than grab this baby and get to reading. You’ll enjoy it. It was a great escape for me and provided my mind some much needed reading entertainment!
