What i think is that this book was to die for! It was hilarious and made me laugh so hard sometimes it made me family look at me weird.
( don't hate me) but i very much dislike kindles or nooks or whatever. I like to have the trophy on my shelf to show that i read the book aswell as holding it and smelling the pages. But i am so glad that i got this on my ipad.

Addy was sometimes a 8 year old trying to do stupid things to get at Caleb and it always ended badly but she was also funny and a strong

Wasted money.... The cover, the price($.99), and the description got me. I had to forced myself to finish this book. How it got so many stars beats the heck out of me. So Addy and Caleb end up living together because of a tragic circumstance. A fire burning down Caleb's family home and killing his mom in it. Addy is a seventeen year old "princess" having a problem with Caleb living in her home before really getting to know him. Ok....Addy acts like a spoiled 12 year old throughout this entire bo ...more
Loved this book I loved addy and Caleb's relationship they really had a love hate thing going on and it was so funny because they sounded like a married couple and ooh the pranks lol

Fav quote

“Excuse me but this is a library,” the librarian said as she stormed over to where we were sat. I never understand why the first thing that a librarian says when they want you to be quiet is, ‘excuse me but this is a library’. What do they think, that we thought we were going to the zoo but got lost?”

So freaking hilarious. Whoopsy. I don't happen to have a quarter on me, oh well. Seriously, this was a great read with a laugh-out-loud plot. The humor alone is worth the full 5 stars, but combine that with a great story, and you have a winner. Sure, there were a few grammar issues, but who cares. I loved this book. There's no doubt I'll be reading more from this author. ...more

Under all the cheesiness, the clichéd ending, and the irrelevant shouting from main character, I thought it was a fairly good-ish book.

Entertaining, yes. (If you like cheesy stories)

Immature, definitely.

Unique, not really, I would just call it immature.

And Addictive, *shakes her head* not one bit.

Don't get me wrong, there are definitely parts you find yourself giggling out loud, or just laughing like a manic, but under no circumstances did I get a moment where I was hooked to read on.

For starter, this book was beyond my expectation. I know that the title and picture gave a way too much, but trusts me you'll definitely enjoy this book especially at the end.

Now for some specifics why i did enjoy it,
FIRSTLY, the manner of writing was a perfect fitting in the story. SECOND, after finishing it you'll see a great deal on how did the author devise the whole thing. That the end suffice the few things you might find at first a trifle. THIRD, i was not a fan of childish bickering but

The first word that comes to mind when I describe this book is funny. I don't think I have ever read a book that has made me laugh so much. It was actually a joy to read. I loved the pranks. I have taken notes from this book just in case I ever need to prank anyone.

This book was really sweet as well. I am a sucker for a happy ending and this book just gave me that. I couldn't get rid of the goofy smile off my face and there were parts were I was like awww.

This book had me cracking up! The relationship between the hot headed girl and the bad boy is hilarious and I love the female lead! She's unlike other female characters in books. She doesnt sit back and take crap, nope, this girl dishes out what you have coming to you! And she gives it good!
and the ending was absolutely sweet/cute and hysterical all at the same time! It was a perfect closing and a perfect description of their relationship in a nut shell!

Oh my God! This book just made my day (..ehr...night)!
I spent most of the time chuckling, giggling, snickering, snorting like a fool and full blown laughing like a madman! It was so hilarious!
Oh and that scene of Addy handcuffed to her bed and Courtney stuck in the window with her butt up in the air was EPIC! And "Granzilla" cracked me up! Like Courtney's other made-up words. She's something else, for sure. I don't know which of them was the funniest, whether Addy or Courtney. They both were fan
I really can't comment on this book because I couldn't even finish the free excerpt from kindle. All I know is that the lead female was so irritating and irrational in that first maybe 15ish pages that I could not bring myself to buy this book. There were just so many good reviews for this book that I thought it would be really good. I might go back and read the full excerpt and actually get to the part where she and the bad boy actually interact. I'm just not sure it's worth it, but I hate not ...more

I really enjoyed Caleb and Courtney but I kind of had a hard time with Addy. She just bothered me for some reason. I get where she was coming from to a certain point but I kind of thought that she came across as trying too hard. I warmed up to her a little while reading but I just didn't like her character. Don't get me wrong it was cute just not for me. I don't discourage anyone from trying it out and forming their own opinion because that's all this review is, is my opinion. ...more

KMSL...(wipes tears)...This book was so damn funny it's unbelievable. I have to admit I literally laughed so hard at times, I thought I would pee my pants. The thong..The bra..and the little black dress, what great categories to form about dates. There are a lot of things that were great about this book. Lets just say I would recommend this book to any and everyone. Need a good laugh or just down and out, well this will defiantly lift your spirits. A MUST READ!!!!! ...more

I liked this story line. Although it dragged on a bit, the message was sweet and the push/pull between the characters kept me interested and entertained. What I didn't like, however; was the editing, or rather the lack thereof. There were far too many gramatical errors and spelling mistakes that were difficult to ignore. I would have given this book a higher rating if it had been edited. ...more

I couldn't stop laughing 'till the end. And talking about THE END, what a ride!!!

Sharlay THANK YOU for this. It was totally refreshing to read a masterpiece like this. I really can say that turned out to be the best reading I've done this year.

This was a great short read, it was cute, funny, and had heart. The only thing I would change would be making it longer.

But a funny worthwhile read! I laughed out loud a few times. I would recommend this book, if your looking for a quick, light read!

Don't get me wrong. It was a cute, fun, fluffy and funny read. And that's great.

Unique? Nope.

Intriguing? Wouldn't say so.

Mature? Absolutely not.

At times it was pretty funny I admit, and I grew to like Addy by the time she stopped behaving like a 12 year old. Which took a while.

Celeb was pretty funny at times, but by the time he confessed his feelings, it felt a tad rushed. Scratch that. No, a lot rushed.

Only a few days before they were barley friends, and then out of the blue there's a whole dr

Caleb I loved him, "ok, well I'm just warning you that I get impatient, so if I can't find one then I'm more than happy to walk around naked." He's just something else completely, "as if telling the entire school that I was in love with my best friend wasn't bad enough, now you want to damage my vital organs too?" He said with a slight smile on his face." Seriously when you get these two in a room it's all pranks, attitude, and a whole lot of sexual tension:

Living with the Bad Boy was a very unique story. A bit immature at times, but all together it was cute and funny. The tricks and pranks really had me giggling my way through most of the story. Although, also at moments cringing, because these two characters are so ruthless. Nothing in this story really jumped out at me, but it was a really good story. Entertaining and shocking keeping readers into the story, if for nothing else, but the anticipation of seeing what they will do next. I have so ot ...more

I was a bit disappointed in this one. I felt it was a little immature and unreal for my tastes. And I felt some of the lines were taken out of funny pop culture lines/quotes. I usually like the stories where you have the crazy, funny heroine, and then you have the bad boy player type. They hate each other at first then they realize they love each other. But this one just didn't do it for me. I was able to skip over a lot of the paragraphs without feeling like I missed anything. Therefore it was ...more

It made me laugh at start but I think halfway through the pranks just kinda irritates me. It goes like erm I'm think OTT now. It makes sense how it went but the dislike is kinda OTT as well. I sort of skipped through to like a few pages after hitting halfway of the book and continues skimming the book than actually reading every part. It's interesting and a good read but it felt like the dislike between each other kinda drags. ...more

Addy hates Caleb's gut after a prank that was not so nice and never forgotten. Now Caleb is moving in after his house is destroyed and Addy vows to make his live a living hell. Caleb likes this challenge and vows to do the same.

This book was funny some of the pranks were hilarious.
I liked the love building and Addy has the best friend you could wish for, Courtney is so sweet but also funny she cracks me up with her always hungry scenes.

Very funny read. 3.5 stars.

What would you do if you were forced to live with someone you really didn't like???? Make their life hell :) I loved the banter of all these characters!!! This is such a great group of characters. I loved each and every one of them. This book will make you laugh, cry, laugh some more, say awe, and make your heart melt. This is a wonderful story of coping, having fun, growing up, having amazing friends, and falling in love. ...more

Amazing book!

I have never cried with laughter all the way through a book like I did with this book. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars.

I loved the book from start to finish.

I loved the ending, was really cute. I was really sad thinking it was going to end on a cliffhanger.

I wish this was a series I loved all the characters in the book.

I have never read this author before but am excited to check out her other books.

“A bra looks good, gives you comfort and support but every now and then, you need to get rid of it and be free. Then there's the thong, it's hot, sexy, and cute but eventually it becomes a complete and utter pain in the butt. Lastly, there's the little black dress, the one that goes with everything, it's hot, sexy, cute, makes you feel confident and no matter what, it's the one that you always keep. Just try it, next time you a guy, see which one he fits into, I promise you, you will soon be able to form a whole list.” 5 likes
