Seventeen-year-old Meg Flannigan isn’t very self-confident, but what girl would be after her sophomore-year boyfriend dumped her by making out with another girl in front of her locker? Now a senior, Meg catches the eye of not one but two guys at school. They vie over her attention, and both are gorgeous. Sounds good, right? Not if one of the guys is her boyfriend and the o ...more

I read Perfect for You as a draft--back up.
If you read the blurb, you'll notice this book was previously released as two novellas. I read the first novella then the draft of the novel. I enjoyed the novella but got really hooked right where it ended! Not fair! And I found the beginning of the first novella slow. I know Ashelyn worked on picking up the pace in the beginning. And the rest of the novel was already awesome. However, I know it's even better now, because I know Ashelyn made further re

Take a girl who plays tennis and whose boyfriend plays football. Add a would-be boyfriend who also plays tennis. Mix, and you have a triangle of who our heroine will choose that will keep you guessing until the very end.

In Author Ashelyn Drake’s YA contemporary novel, PERFECT FOR YOU, senior Meg Flannigan loves Ash, the quarterback of Treemont High’s football team. But lately, Noah, the tennis player, has been showing an interest in Meg too. She’s had a crush on him for years and is drawn to his

I found that Meg's bouncing between Noah and Ash almost painful to watch. Granted, it makes sense for her age but the fact that she can't figure out what is and what isn't real is very frustrating. It's a continual battle between two guys that, truly, I don't think are a good match for her. I don't see that she really matches either of them. She's young and immature--two things that, when mixed together, can be disastrous. Ash isn't much different--he seems to play into the "stupid boy" role too ...more

After having her heart ripped out and stomped on , Meg Flannigan is now in the place to settle down and finally find her happiness again as she has a great friend in Grayson and the best boyfriend a girl could ask for - Ash - the school's quarterback and football star. This should have been a relaxing year where Meg didn't have to worry about girls stealing boyfriends and hearts being broken. That is until the guy she has had a crush on for like ever Noah starts to pay Meg a bit more attention a ...more

Review also posted on my blog Between fantasy and reality

I have read a few books from Ashelyn Drake, well, from her alter ego Kelly Hashway and I liked the so when I saw the opportunity to be a part of the blog tour for her new YA romance, I signed up. I was curious how it would turn out since all her other books I read had a paranormal background. For me, this was a good and relaxing summer read. It was light and had some issues but in the end it worked out well.

Can you say wow!? That was the mother of all love triangles! LOL I think it may have been a square though with Derrick in the picture!

I like the characters and the story was easy to read even it was a bit predictable. But as far as YA Contemporary Romance goes it was a great book. Full of insecurity uncertainty crushes and first loves. It was Meg's roller coaster and what a heck of a ride it was! I really liked the true uncertainty that comes with being a hormonal teenager.

It's been a long time since I've read a teen romance novel, and Perfect for You was a great reintroduction! Ashelyn Drake wrote an incredible story about a girl torn between two great guys, as well as a great hurt from her past.

Meg is totally in love with Ash, but past experiences keep her from completing trusting her heart. When Noah begins flirting with her, she's even more confused. What ensues is a love triangle fueled by love, pain, distrust, and confusion. I was constantly jumping back and

This was a book I've had sitting on my kindle for a while. I had it on my 2017 TBR purge, so I squeezed it in right in the nick of time!
My feelings were pretty meh. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great. The characters were pretty ordinary, and I didn't feel any real connection to the MC. She was just a typical silly girl. The guys were the same, just ordinary.
I did root for Ash all along, simply because Noah was so... stereotypical.
Anyway, read it, thought it was cute, and checked it off my l

I was already familiar with Meg and her teen romance/love triangle storyline from the author’s two previously published novellas. I enjoyed being in Meg’s world again in this longer piece. Drake knows romance and I look forward to her future books.

Nice light high school romance.
Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick

Perfect for You is the first book I have ever read by Ashelyn Drake, but I thought this book sounded really good. I occasionally like to torture myself with love triangles, and this one seemed to be right up my alley. Perfect for You is a young adult book, and the characters are in high school. I do think that this book can be enjoyed by readers of all ages though as long as you keep the age group in mind. I did find the characters to be child

Meg’s never quite recovered from the betrayal and humiliation of finding her boyfriend kissing another girl during sophomore year. But two years later, she’s done her best to move on with Ash, her almost perfect boyfriend of five months, and everything seems to be going well. Until Noah shows up. Noah, the guy who never noticed her even as she crushed on him for years, who never spoke to her before, who’s suddenly paying attention to her and making it clear he’s interested in more than frien

3.5 stars!

Meg Donahue hasn’t had the best luck when it comes to romance. After being dumped by her boyfriend in one of the worst, most embarrassing situations ever (seeing him kiss another girl in front of her locker) she becomes heartbroken, wondering if she will ever find true love. Her parents are lovey-dovey, kissy and affectionate in front of her, and she becomes concerned she will never find a love like that. (Though their PDA moments really make her uncomfortable most of the time.) Meg fi

*Note: This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review*
This book had a synopsis of a cute YA contemporary, and honestly, I was pleased I got the chance to read it as part of the blog tour. I went into it with high hopes, and unfortunately these hopes weren't exactly met.
This wasn't a bad book, in fact, I enjoyed a lot of it, and got through it pretty fast because it was a light easy going book.
I had two main issues with the book though, one is that I felt it was a little repetit
Perfect For You is a great teen love story that will bring you back to your high school days when everything didn’t seem so easy, there were tough choices to make and friendships/relationships seemed to be always on the go. Ashelyn Drake does a great job of writing about Meg Flannigan and her troubled relationship with her boyfriend of five months Ash when the boy she had been crushing on for the past two years finally notices her – Noah.

Drake does a great job of staying true to her characters a

I thought this was a story I was going to enjoy...mistaken completely. I have read love triangles before and never had a problem until now. I HATE Noah SO MUCH. Every time he appeared in the book, it would ruin it for me. Thanks to him, I am giving this book 1 star.

The story started frustrating me while reading when Noah appears to take Meg to the water park. He is not respecting Meg and Ash's relationship and I downright dislike him a lot. When I got to the end of Chapter 12, I closed my iPad

I have never read a book by this author. It was really good from the beginning to the very end. I love reading books about a romance triangle between one girl and two boys. Meg has been with her love Ash for a long time. All of a sudden Noah a boy that she crushed on for a while started to notice her. Even though she has a boyfriend. Read more here ...more

A wonderfully angsty teen book! I wasn't sure where it was going to end for awhile there... but it ended perfectly! I loved the characters and felt the feelings and indecision were accurate for the characters ages. It reminded me of my younger self at times. Another knockout by the author! ...more
