True love can’t be strategized.

After book blogger Vivian Galdi’s longtime crush pretends their secret summer kissing sessions never happened, Vivian creates a list of safe crushes, determined to protect her heart.

But nerd-hot Dallas, the sweet new guy in town, sends the mission and Vivian’s zing meter into chaos. While designing software for the bookstore where Vivian works, Dallas wages a counter-mission.

Operation Replacement Crush is in full effect. And Dallas is determined to take her heart off the shelf.

My review:

I received an e-ARC of The Replacement Crush from the publisher via NettGalley, in exchange with an honest review.

The Replacement Crush will leave you with an aching jaw,  painful cheeks, and lots of looking like a fool as you swoon , scream, and laugh !

I really loved the fact  that the main character was a book blogger. This made the book even more interesting for me. I love how creative was Lisa when she created the rating scale for Viv’s book blog. It was not only creative , but also hilarious.

A good way to display how the little things always matter is to look even beyond this book’s plot, and focus on how people interacted in this story. A simple question like ” Are you vegetarian/ vegan?” can give others a sense of modesty, and respect.

At first, I wasn’t sure why the book was that long. I had a feeling that the story could have  been over by 80%. Then, things happened that made reconsider that thought, and even admire this book much more.

Lisa is the Queen of Contemporary Romance and Humor; she always find a new way to tell her stories and make her readers giggle and swoon. I think I just came up with a new word ! 

                                                                 Wait for it !!!

Lisa never fails to make me Swiggle ( Swoon & Giggle )

I really enjoyed The Replacement Crush, and I can’t wait to see what she writes next.


About the Author:

Lisa Brown Roberts still hasn’t recovered from the teenage trauma of nearly tweezing off both eyebrows and having to pencil them in for an entire school year. This and other angst-filled memories inspire her to write YA books about navigating life’s painful and funny dramas, and falling in love along the way.
