Dear Ms.Davis:
I really like your story. I wonder how you got your idea for the story? The idea of the story reminds me of a big event happening to all students in my middle school. Or. more like evenyone's habit. The habit is that when a girl fights with a boy, that means that they are inlove. There's a phrase that was say,"Girls hit boys, or the other way around, it means she/he likes him/her. Hwne girls argue with boys, that means they are in love." Some thing like that. So when a girl fights...more

Young adult romances seem to always have a swoon worthy, beautiful, boy who says all the right things and has all the moves to make girls just “awwww” all over him. Well…this book is not one of those tales. :D

Paul and Holly have this adorable, yet tense flirt-fight chemistry going on. Paul is adorable, but he can say some rude comments at times. Just when you think he is the rudest boy ever though, you turn the page to find him doing the cutest thing or showing such concern for Holly. UGH!! Boys...more

Cute, funny, and a quick read. :)

Excerpt:

"We should have worn Hawaiian shirts or something. That reminds me --- I have your shirt. Remind me to give it to you before we leave tonight."
"Give my shirt to me before we leave," Paul said. "There, I just reminded you." When Holly frowned at him, he said, "You said to remind you. You didn’t say when."
"Okay, could you not be so obnoxious when the heat is, like, a thousand degrees in here?" Holly stood at the grill, cooking four hot dogs and one veggie b...more

I really like this book! Its remind me of some movie i saw. This book show how this girl and guy keep arguing and eventually ended up together! I like these kind of story because its funny how the girl and the guy hate each other at first and then fall in love. They will first argue, then slowly realize that they love each other. I think these kind of relationship happen in real life too! Overall this book is amazing. I think some couple started off arguing with each other. I think they're the o...more
Heather
gosh.what to say about this?? i don't even know where to start.
well,how about here-
the main character was completely unlikeable.she was so uptight and took everything wayy to seriously.
caitlyn davis did not make ONE likeable character in this book.
everyone had some weird quirk about them that made it impossible to like them.
the things in the book were boring and at multiple times throughout i found myself thinking 'why am i reading this?!'
i don't know what it's still doing on my shelf.you know,i...more

I thought the story of this book was pretty cool. The main Character Holly in this book has a summer job at a country club and she is always running in to trouble. Even though Holly runs in to lots of trouble she still tries hard to make everything right again. Working at the Country Club her co-worker Paul are always fighting. I thought the ending was pretty ironic because in the beginning of the book Paul and Holly weren't getting along that great but in the end they weren't all up in each oth...more
Leesaaaa
This book was really cute and she was just 16 to find someone like Paul. It was also a nice storyline that they hate each other at first but then realize they love each other. I loved the part where they were at the party and ... Swim much and him grabbing hold of her hand in th rain.... It was funny when he tells her that he likes her, he was being careful of what to say real cool and fun especially the summer job.

Holly is spending the summer at the local country club, working at the hot grill and dishing out burgers and fries to all the hungry, cute boys. But the one boy she keeps focusing on is Paul! He and Holly are always fighting and arguing, and soon, they know that they have something between them.But when Holly's best friend Ainslee tells her that she wants to ask out Paul, she doesn't know what to do.
Saymon
Oh my god this book was so cute. I loved the ending when Paul and Holly finally got together. I was waiting for this part in the whole book. It would have been better if they used more details to explain there relationship instead of just ending there. I really like the characters and how the author made all the characters so likeable. I recommend this book to everyone again.
Sandra Uresti
Yeah, it really is OK. I read the first book of the I heart bikinis series and it is way better than this one. Not sure why I felt “That's hot” a little incomplete. Describes all the situations, the places but lacks of somenthing I can't quite figure out yet. Maybe it is because Paul was such an asshole to Holly all the time...anyways!
Abbi Heart
WOW! LOVED THIS BOOK!!!

This book was a great read, though it was a bit short! I have never read a book where I LOVED every single character in it...it was truly a great read. I would have liked this book a bit more if it was a longer novel but overall, it is a book worth reading!
Kelly
This is a cute, fun summer book although the plot is dull and the actual story takes a long time to get going. This isn't a book I would recommend even though it does point out a lot about friendship!
Heather
Delightful! Fun and clean read. This a perfect summer series. The name I Heart Bikinis is a little weird but I'm loving the books.
Vicky  del Rio
So far I am enjoying the book.I dont want to be a spoiler but ill only say that its is about relationships and boys liking girls.
Shanna
it was a cute light fluffy story but i feel like there could have been a bit more too it. but it was a really easy quick read.
Linny
a girl working in the summer as a summer job and a guy they pick fights with eachother but is that really just it?
