The All-Star Quarterback. A Fake Relationship. A Sweet and Unexpected Love.

Abby Murrow is an introverted investigative journalist for a school paper that no one reads. When Abby’s long-time crush, the school paper’s editor, assigns her to write about the social life of Evermore High, she’s forced to get a real taste of high school. But how do you write about a social life you’ve never had?

Chase Jones is the all-star quarterback at Evermore High. He’s a total catch – friendly, handsome, and popular. So why do all of his relationships end exactly three weeks after being featured on the school’s gossip app?

After hearing Chase has a mystery on his hands, Abby cuts a deal: she’ll pretend to be his girlfriend and figure out who is sabotaging his relationships. In exchange, he takes her to the best parties, the hottest secret spots, and the infamous Christmas Crush.

But as Abby spends more time with Chase, she starts wondering – if this relationship is supposed to be fake, why does it feel so real?


Abby is an investigative journalist for the Panther Pinnacle. She plans on making it a good year to set up to become editor for her senior year. But she is blind-sided when the editor this year, her crush, gives her the social column to give her diversity for her portfolio. She is not what one calls a social butterfly.

Chase has been dumped one after another literally three weeks after they are featured on the gossip app Click. He doesn’t know what the deal is.

Abby comes up with an idea. She’ll find out who is sabotaging Chase’s relationships, but Chase will have to get her into the “in” parties so she can write her social column. With the deal laid out now, they have to see who is the one sabotaging. Is it an ex-girlfriend or is it someone else?

Abby and Chase were adorable together. The story was a quick read but it was a good quick read. I really thought the person who was the sabotager was going to be different until close to the end when a hint is revealed.

I think I might jump into the next book.
