Unfortunately, cutesy books do not do anything to help if the MC happens to be a moron.
Reasons why KATE is a moronic dimwitted bimbo.
1)A boy's picture as your desktop background = creepy. (especially if you have only met him once)
2)The said object of obsession does not know your name even after 3 weeks, not a total catch.
3)He hooks up with someone else. 5 minutes after meeting them. Give up instead of making a idiotic plan called Operation Ho ...more
"4.5 stars" Love on the Lifts is a sweet, young-adult romance that celebrates the wonder of first loves. High school senior, Kate, the main protagonist and first-person narrator of the story, takes her two best friends to a ski resort to stay in a condo owned by her aunt, where they are unexpectedly joined by her college freshman brother and his two friends. Needless to say everyone finds someone to romance during a fun-filled winter break.
Kate was a very likable heroine ...more
Joe, I was rooting for you the whole time;)
Kate was one of the most oblivious and idiotic romantic heroines I've ever read. She met Brad (her brother's college roommate) once a ...more
There is something not so cute that bothered me though. It's the lack of reference to the notion of safe-sex. The three high-school girls in this book have sex at some point and there is absolutely nothing that let us know if they used any portection or, at least, thaught things through first.
I know it's a work of fiction and ...more
It doesn’t hurt to kiss a few frogs before finally kissing your prince.
Hot chocolate should be sinful, and I don't believe in sinning in half measures.

I've got better things to do than discuss my life with you.
I believe we should always listen to our own hearts, and not other people's brains.

How did a girl know she could trust a guy not to break her heart?

I do not think I have ever rated a book one star but I'm sorry...This book was just completely disappointing. I mean, it wasn't a cozy, cute, read. It was all about girls and boys wanting to be all over each other. I almost rated it two stars because the aunt owned a bookstore, but I couldn't get myself to, I just really disliked this book.
At the ski resort, Kate, her brother Sam and her two friends Allie and Leah (both are completely forgettable and I suspect they were only created to make up the numbers and to make Kate more bearable) go to a ski resort wher ...more

What i learned about this book is that sometimes people aren't always what they seem to be. For example, Kate likes Brad but he's one of those guys that looks ...more
Love on the Lifts is a great story about learning that not every one's crush live up to their expectations. I mean, just because he's hot doesn't mean that he's not a jerk. Of course, it's not really the point of the story but I honestly like the way they give a twist with Brad here. A real good point there. On the other hand, I want to give this book a higher rate, i really want to but i am kinda disappointed or unsatisfied with the ending. I like to know more about thei ...more
Enjoyable enough, but I've read better by this author.
Una historia tan sencilla la hace algo completamente hermoso por la forma de estar escrita.
Desde el primer momento me enamore de Joe, debo admitirlo me recordó a Parker de Thrill Ride. Lo que probablemente hizo que lo amara aún más. Me encanta la ambientación en la nieve que tiene, los personajes, son tan reales no hay nadie que esté de relleno. Un libro absolutamente precioso.
De esos que no p ...more
If you’re looking for a cute, simple read to enjoy while cuddled up on a snowy afternoon in front of the fireplace this winter, this book is for you! I started and finished Love on the Lifts in one day and enjoyed it from start to finish. It’s a fast and fluffy read that centers around three best friends: Kate, Allie and Leah who head up to Snow Angel Valley over their winter break to spend time on the slopes and hopefully catch the eye of a few cut ...more
her characters come off as childish when they're in high school and yet come off as old at the same time.what with the yoga/vegetarian stuff. i mean,how many teens are like that?
i think she forgot what teens are actually like.

Kate and her friends are staying at her aunt's condo in Snow Angel Valley over winter break, and they plan on making the trip all about finding cute boys to ski with and cuddle up by the fireplace. However, their plans kind of take a left turn when Kate's older brother, Sam, arrives with his college buddies, Brad and Joe, claiming that their aunt said he could stay there over the break too.
(view spoiler)[Since Kate has a major crush on Brad, she figures this could be the bes ...more
Okay so I was actually thinking of giving this book 4 stars because it's predictable, no doubt, but..
1) No matter how you you put it, I am a sucker for stories like these. First loves and happy endings.
2) The setting is so romantic with the snow and all that.
3) It being predictable was not the point. I was along for the ride. The in betweens and the happenings. ...more

"Me,too.What I've always wanted since I first saw you."
"Why didn't you kiss me again after that first time,that night on the deck?"
"You didn't give me any hints that you wanted another one."
i wiggled up a little closer to him and looped my fingers behind his neck. "What would a hint entail?"
He held my gaze."Exactly what you're doing."
"Then why aren't you kissing me?"
He touched his nose to mine."It's cold out here.What if our lips freeze together?"
"I'll chance it.”
