Available in print for the first time, and with exclusive bonus content only found in the print version! Fall in love with Sally and Becks all over again.
Adorkable (ah-dor-kuh-bul): Descriptive term meaning to be equal parts dorky and adorable. For reference, see Sally Spitz.
Seventeen-year-old Sally Spitz is done with dating. Or at least, she’s done with the horrible blind dates/hookups/sneak attacks her matchmaking bestie, Hooker, sets her up on. There’s only so much one geek girl and Gryffindor supporter can take.
Her solution: She needs a fake boyfriend. And fast.
Enter Becks, soccer phenom, all-around hottie, and Sally’s best friend practically since birth. When Sally asks Becks to be her F.B.F. (fake boyfriend), Becks is only too happy to be used. He’d do anything for Sal―even if that means giving her PDA lessons in his bedroom, saying she’s “more than pretty,” and expertly kissing her at parties.
The problem: Sally’s been in love with Becks all her life―and he’s completely clueless.
This book features two best friends, one special-edition Yoda Snuggie, countless beneath-the-ear kisses, and begs the question:
Who wants a real boyfriend when faking it is so much more fun?
Pre-order from Amazon:
So why do all of the blind dates that Sally Spitz’ best girl friend, Hooker, set her up on fail? The answer is Sally’s best friend, Becks, whom she’s been in love with since they first met. But the fact that she’s in love with him isn’t something she can share because it might be the end of the relationship she values above all others.
I really wanted to read Cookie O’Gorman’s Adorkable in as few sittings as possible because I was loving it but life kept interfering. I finally had some uninterrupted time today and oh, let me just tell you that if you love sweet, funny YA romance novels involving geeky girls and hunky, sporty (and smart) boys, Adorkable is the one to read.
Adorkable also had one of the sexiest albeit very sweet scenes I’ve read in a long time. While no actual sex was involved, it was tantalizing because of how attracted Sally was to Becks and O’Gorman deftly transferred those emotions to the reader. Swoon-worthy!
With believable characters, a sense of humor, and lots of geeky references, Adorkable is endearing and…well…adorkable!
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
