Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a kickass heroine, a boy so hot he’ll make you shiver, and a falling-in-love story fit for the big screen. You’ll want to settle in and have the popcorn ready.
After Mariely Hinojosa and Cabot Wheeler both break up with their significant others at the same party, Mariely sees a way to get even with both of their exes. Everyone knows that the best way to get over a breakup is a hookup—a fake hookup, that is. Three weeks, all fun, no strings, and definitely no heartbreak at the end.
But somewhere between the sweet hand-holding and melt-your-mind kisses, their fake relationship starts to feel less like an act and more like the real thing…but Mariely’s a free-spirited girl from the other side of the tracks, and Cabot’s the hot trust-fund guy from the Hills.
They’d never work for real…

DISCLAIMER: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and not under influence of any other opinions.
My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars.
Wow, what can I say about this book, other than it is amazing. The way the author incorporated each detail worked really well. I love that Mariely is Spanish (I felt like I was her for this detail), I rarely find/read many character with any sort of Hispanic background, which made me love the story more. I did not realize it before, but Cabot does make an appearance in Ten Things Sloane Hates About Tru, and It was fantastic to follow his story as he slowly fall for Mariely during a staged hook-up. Which they both needed, since they both got out of a break-up. This book was jut oodles of fun to read as well as nerve-wracking at one point because . . . . I will not tell you. My advice would be that you grab a copy of the book and check it out for yourself! I look forward to the next Mariely & Cabot book!
About the Author
There are three things (besides her family) that Shellee loves more than Netflix: Dr. Pepper, OTPs, and book boyfriends (I’m looking at you, Gilbert Blythe).
Shellee has been told that her life goal as a writer should be to win prestigious awards that will grant her literary immortality, but as an OG ‘shipper (like, seriously, Tad and Dixie--my first hardcore ship) all she really wants is to create two characters that people love so much they give them a cool mashup name.
Shellee spends her days living the dream with her family in Austin, Texas--and by living the dream she means waking up at the crack of dawn to go to work, chauffeur, walk dogs, do dishes, and fold laundry. At night she gets down to to real business, basking in the warm, blue glow of her computer screen and bringing the stories in her head to life on the page...or watching Veronica and Logan fan videos on YouTube till 2am.
Tomorrow she’s definitely going to kick that procrastination problem to the curb.
