This spinoff of The Replacement Crush featuring Amy and Toff is sure to melt your heart.
Shy bookworm Amy McIntyre is about to compete for the chance to interview her favorite author, who hasn’t spoken to the press in years. The only way to win is to step out of the shadows and into the spotlight, but that level of confidence has never come easy.
The solution? A competition coach. The problem? The best person for the job is the guy she’s secretly crushing on…local surfer celebrity Toff Nichols.
He’s a player. He’s a heartthrob. He makes her forget basic things, like how to breathe. How can she feel any confidence around him?
To her surprise, Toff agrees to help. And he’s an excellent teacher. Amy feels braver—maybe even brave enough to admit her feelings for him. When their late night practices become less about coaching and more about making out, Amy’s newfound confidence wavers.
But does Toff really like her or is this just another lesson?
My Review –
I Loved This Book !!! To me this book was probably the most relatable book any bibliophile could read and it was also equally hilarious.
Toff (Christopher) was a surfer wishing to become pro as soon as he finished high school. The son of a retired pro-surfer/board shaper he lived the surfing life style and was a very laidback young man. He was cute and friendly. He had a wonderful personal growth throughout the story.
Amy was wonderful. She was a book blogger and reviewer, yeah, just like all of us. She was a bit nerdy, quirky, cute but used to be sort of a wallflower. She has had a crush on Toff for a long time, but has never imagined herself as someone that could date him as he was always out of her league.
This is a coming of age and a friendship story. The story of two kids that grew up together, but were never part of the same circle until their best friends decided to date. They became friends and learned that they truly enjoyed each other and along the way helped each other to grow too.
So if you are looking for a book that will make you laugh and smile but also tear up just a little bit, then look no further and check out The Bookworm Crush.
