Sloane Whitaker never expected to like living in Texas, but after a few months in the Lone Star State, she has to admit she likes the food, the school, and the boy next door. What she doesn’t like is the fact that half her family is still back in New York. Convincing her dad to relocate to Texas requires making their upcoming visit as perfect as possible. The perfect dinner, the perfect daughter...with the perfect boyfriend.
But when her not-so-perfect boyfriend Tru Dorsey is suddenly not-so-available, Sloane has to find another dad-impressing guy to show off at dinner. Tru himself suggests enlisting the help of a fake boyfriend, but the reality of another guy with Sloane on his arm might be more than Tru can manage. Add in a mysterious blackmailer and a divided family, and Sloane and Tru’s relationship might not be able to handle the heat.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a bad boy next door, the good girl who snags his heart, and one epically disastrous ruse-gone-wrong. Join the fun at your own risk.
The Sloane and Tru duology is best enjoyed in order.
#1: Ten Things Sloane Hates About Tru
#2: Falling for the Girl Next Door
The Sloane and Tru duology is part of the larger, multi-authored Creative HeArts Series, which can be read out of order. If you loved Sloane and Tru's stories, you'll love the complete series set at Austin NextGen Academy, including:
#1 - Ten Things Sloane Hates About Tru
#2 - How Willa Got Her Groove Back
#3 - Crazy, Stupid, Fauxmance
#4 - The Secret Life of a Dream Girl
#5 - Falling for the Girl Next Door
#6 - Weddings, Crushes, and Other Dramas
Mixed feelings on this one. The good points - it's well done with great writing. It wraps up Sloane and Tru's story and I love these characters. The story moves along nicely and deals with real issues. What I didn't care for - In my opinion there wasn't a lot to the story. At least not enough for a whole separate book. It simply wrapped things up that started in book 1. I didn't feel that Tru's issues and the help he sought out was realistic. It all seemed too simple when in reality it's a very real issue and not so simply dealt with.
