The Heartbreak Cure by Amanda Ashby
Publication Date: December 4, 2017
Publisher: Entangled Teen: Crush
How to get over a heartbreak:
Step one: Eat your body weight in brownies.
Step two: Throw yourself into your dreams of becoming a famous writer.
Step three: Beg your (hottie) ex-neighbor to act as your fake boyfriend.
Step four: Skip step three unless you’re ready for some serious fallout.
After being dumped and humiliated over the summer, Cat Turner does what any sane girl would do. She asks bad boy Alex Locke to be her fake boyfriend and show the world (and her editor at the school newspaper) that she’s fine. Problem is, the more time she spends with Alex, the more she risks getting her heart broken. For real this time.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a swoony bad boy who will melt your heart, brownies, and witty banter. One, two, or all three might prove addictive…

List your all-time favorite literary characters and why you like them
Jane Austen is my favorite author and while I adore all of her books and characters, Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy are my favorite couple.
Elizabeth is so smart and not scared to speak her mind, and watching Darcy fall for her, against his will and judgement is so thrilling. As for Lizzie, who prides herself on her intelligence, I love how she slowly discovers how much she’s misjudged him. And of course Darcy proves himself to be the ultimate hero when he does the one thing she longs for – he saves Lydia and the family name. To me this is the action of a true hero. Of course the fact he owns Pemberly, which is a very fine estate, doesn’t hurt!!!
There are many other things I love about the book as well, especially the way she uses humor to build her secondary characters such as Mrs. Bennet, Mr. Collins and Lady Catherine. It really is perfect.
