Publication Date: January 23, 2018
Publisher: Swoon Romance

Blurb :
You'd think a girl with the most romantic name in the world would have her pick of boyfriends.

But Valentine's Day sucks when you're single. Just ask Juliet Valentine, whose last name happens to also be the name of the most dreaded made-up holiday ever.

A romantic at heart, this year is especially hard on Juliet. Her sister, Layla, is in a new relationship, her mom's match-making business is doing great, and her school's new fundraiser is "Love-Grams."

Juliet's miserable, a little jealous, and lonely.

Quarterback Jared Black is the most popular guy in school. A star athlete, Jared tops the most-eligible bachelor list year after year. But to Juliet Valentine, he's all but invisible. She isn't impressed.

Jared's never had to work hard to get the attention of a girl before. Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and he's determined to ask Juliet out. After all, if Tyler can win over Layla, Jared ought to have a shot with Layla's sister.

Unlike Tyler and Layla, charm, flattery and good looks won't work on Juliet. So with the V-Day dance coming up, Jared uses the school’s Love-Grams to let Juliet know how he feels. Should be simple enough, right?

Wrong. Each attempt ends up either in the trash or thrown in someone's face. Juliet won't play his game.

Now, without a date to the dance Jared realizes it’s going to take a Hail Mary to win the girl of his dreams.

My Musings :

I had already the previous book in the series and I had quite a bit of fun with it. So when I came across this one, I didn't hesitate to pick it up.

The starting of the book was quite good and it kind of left off where Layla's story had ended. So it was a continuation for me. But it can read as a standalone. There aren't that many references to confuse the reader.

I was quite looking forward to Juliet's story. So the change in her character had me blinking in surprise. I so didn't see that coming. I knew she would be hurt but not to the extent that her character is completely changed. But still, I liked her in this book. She was feisty and a bit grouchy and yet entertaining with her quirks and reactions. As for Jared, he was the sweetest in his actions and his plans to woo Juliet with the love grams. He definitely made me swoon with his long lived love for Juliet!

As much as I had a fun time reading the book with the continued efforts of Jared in winning Juliet over and her continued rebuffing of Jared's actions, there were few points which made the story weaker in my opinion. Juliet's blind hatred of Jared could have been better explained in the story. And though Jared was a great guy, he seemed to be holding back when it comes to his love life. And the ending felt kind of rushed for me. It literally had me blinking at the abruptness. It could have been played out a bit more.

Inspite of it all, I did enjoy the tale of Juliet's stubbornness and Jared's patience. Now I can't wait to read about Addie in the future!

I received a copy voluntarily for reviewing purposes. This doesn't impact my thoughts in any way.

My one line review : A quick school romance with a rushed ending.

My rating : 3.5/5

My reread factor : 3/5
