Even after a couple of months, sixteen-year-old Amanda Bryson is still nursing a broken heart. And now her parents are forcing her to attend the traditional summer family vacation in New Mexico. She’d much rather be home taking care of her sick great-grandmother than doing chores and dealing with her brother and his friends.
But when they arrive, Amanda learns that the studio of local potter and friend Cady Sanders has been hit by taggers. Not only that, but the older woman broke her foot chasing them off. Now Amanda has the chance to give back by helping out—with the added perk of no thoughts of her ex, or family chores, or obnoxious brothers.
There’s only one problem. Cady’s nephew, Kyle Young, is staying with her for the summer. He’s surly, ridiculously cute, and clearly doesn’t want her around. That makes two of them. But as Amanda and Kyle compete for Cady’s attention, they find they have a lot in common, including a growing attraction. But is Amanda ready to date again? Or will Kyle, despite his intense gazes, turn out to be just as jerky as her ex?

Amanda Vs. The Universe by Patricia B. Tighe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book was so good, so easy to read. It's funny, but has some serious moments too. I loved Amanda's character. Her brothers reminded me of mine (I'm currently surrounded by brothers). I loved how Kyle was introduced. Story had me totally hooked. I enjoyed The Dylan Dilemma, which was the book previous (stand-alone) to this one. I enjoyed this one.
