bad chick vibe Underneath her tough exterior though is someone who is really sweet funny caring and hurt chick vibe Underneath her tough exterior though is someone who is really sweet funny caring and hurt felt so bad for her and wished I could jump in the book and give her a hug I do want to say this though the girl that is supposed to represent her on the cover is all WRONG The cover chick should be wearing some bike leathers and some bootsWith Luke I had a feeling right away that he wasn t going to be what Meg thought he was He seemed to be perfect but when it came to his family life I felt almost as bad for him as I did Meg Luke was a sweetheart though even if he was making jackhole decisions like blackmailing her He had a few moments in the book where he needed to be put in his place and I was so relieved that he realized that as well In the long Run He Really Was A Great GuyMeg And Luke S he really was a great guyMeg and Luke s Dynamic Had Me Hooked From had me hooked from second they bumped into each other literally The whole thing was like an exciting game of cat and mouse where the cat already had the mouse by the tail With the added drama of parents and a crazy ex girlfriend it was insane not to love this book The chemistry and sparks practically flew off of each page along with a lot of snarky banter and uick witted comments those are always the best Five stars to you Amity Hope. And his ex off his backBut as Meg and Luke grow closer they both realize they’ve been eeping secrets from each other Their fake relationship might be doomed from the start if they can’t learn to open up to the one person they never thought they’d tru. ,
review The Rules of Persuasion The Rules of Persuasion #1,
Nality The short chapters The characters developmentTHINGS I DID NOT LIKE The too fast paced romance thing unfolding between Meg and Luke At the beginning the immaturity of Meg and Luke but that has changed by the end of the book as there were improvements in their characters The time lapses it confused me a bit it felt like suddenly losing consciousness and waking up not nowing what is going on and what I have missed out I definitely wanted to see of Jaclyn Luke s ex she was probably the most interesting character in terms of messed up ones so I would absolutely have loved to see of her Overall I gave it a solid 3 stars if you are looking for a light contemporary book that is well written and will distract you from your daily tasks I totally recommend you this one and I am sure you would enjoy it I ve been dying to read The Rules of Persuasion ever since I first heard about it Late night graffiti sessions a fauxmance and flirty baseball lessons It sounded like the exact recipe for a perfect romance read Luckily The Rules of Persuasion was everything I hoped it would be and Much Much Meg Matthews Knows much Meg Matthews The Wedding Band (Save the Date, knows shouldn t have been tagging her high school that fateful night It was risky and slightly careless but she couldn t resist giving her sister such a public tribute At first it was going well no one sees her and then Luke Prescott showed up Luke Prescott the spoiled richid as Meg refers to him as is the from one of the richest families in their small town Arrogant and used to getting what he wants Luke is someone who Meg has always managed to avoidbut that s not the case any Offering her an ultimatum either he turns her in or she pretends to be his fake girlfriend Meg is left with no choice other than to be Luke s girlfriend Now with a set of Rules of Persuasion Meg and Luke set out to fool everyonebut is there a tingle of real behind those explosive Chinas Search for Democracy kissesFauxmances are nothing new in YA literature but I still love them just the same They leave so much room open for potential romance suabbling and whole lot of awkward yet funny moments What makes it even better in the case of The Rules of Persuasion is that Amity Hope does such a fantastic job of of developing Meg and Luke s fake romance turned real It s chaotic and slightly messy It has increasing and well placed tingles of real romance More importantly it opened up so much funny banter as well as hilarious disagreements really the two things I live for in romantic comedy type reads When Meg and Luke are first introduced it s hard to imagine they ll ever find common ground Meg is determined mostly fearless and always uick to speak the truth Her situation with her family was heartbreaking yet incredibly realistic I particularly liked how while Amity offered up some hard topics with that she still managed to give the perfect ratio of the tough topics as well as the light At first glance Luke seems like the stereotypical golden boy however there s a lot to him than meets the eye I loved how dedicated he was to giving back to the community especiallyids at risk as well as the fact that he strived to be better than his father even if it meant risking an easier future Making Luke even better was how charming he was Sure
he could be a grad a jerk sometimescould be a grad A jerk sometimes the moments where he truly left his charmer come out I was full force swooning I loved the way he was with Meg especially towards the end Basically if you love books about fake relationships containing very real isses late night graffiti sessions and charming banter The Rules of Persuasion is for you But word of warning you ll be swooning all the way throughGrade A ARC received from Netgalley for a fair reviewThe Story The Rules of Persuasion was 95% predictable but 100% full of angsty cuteness Honestly if you have read any YA contemporary where a boy or girl get s someone to be their fake boyfriend or girlfriend then you have read this book The only the thing that is different is the circumstances surrounding the initiation of fake relationship This review may contain what is considered spoilers but honestly I think everything I write in here should be. Now a certain infuriating boy holds Meg’s future in his handsWhen Luke Prescott star pitcher and town golden boy catches Meg vandalizing the school she’s given two choices face the conseuences or enter into a fake relationship with him to get his parents.
