"Her wicked revenge, or his wicked heart..."

First of all,this summary got me so excited for this book and thank God that it didn’t let me down.I really enjoyed reading this.There are dual POVs-Hazel the Bazel is a really cute and relatable character and Felix the Cat…well,he’s definitely irresistible.


But there’s more to him than his good looks-he’s really nice, charming and protective.What more can I ask for? The chemistry between them is so lovely and their love is definitely slow-burning.I

Juvenile and boring. Not interested.
I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher via NetGalley. This in no way impacted on my view.

This book was just one of those cute, fluffy contemporaries that you need to sort of cleanse your reading palette between hard hitting fantasy, dystopian, etc. I read the book in just under 24 hours, and it definitely hit the spot, though wasn't my favourite I've ever read.

In the book, Hazel's best friend Kimmy and boyfriend Jay commit the biggest sin: they get together and cheat on Hazel. As y

~This review will also appear on A Leisure Moment~

Not Okay, Cupid can be described in three words: romance, renegade, and recommended. Things have always gone well for Hazel McAllister: perfect boyfriend, perfect grades, and a perfect plan for her life—until everything changes in one day. One day is all it takes for her to end up single, without a best friend, and kissing Felix James. Felix James (!), of all people!

This had teen angst written all over it, which is right up my alley, and I was not disappointed. Hazel is heartbroken when her boyfriend cheats on her with her best friend, Kimmy. When Kimmy's older brother, Felix, comes up with a plan to get back at the two cheaters, Hazel's heartbreak turns to anger and she's ready for revenge. Things go from zero to awkward in under a minute when Hazel and Felix share a steamy kiss in the cafeteria to prove a point. Lifelong friends with a complicated relatio ...more

It's around 2.5 Stars but I will round of up- because I did like the second half

This kinda reminded me of She's All That with a dash of Ten Things I Hate About you, thrown the bad boy turned lover boy....
So your classic highschool cute & fluffy.

But I was not a fan of the first half. It was too melodramatic for me. And my biggest issue with the book: I really didn't like Felix's POV.
BUT saying this... It gets better, way better. The second half of the book, was the classic sigh-worthy cute

The synopsis is pretty simple with this one, our perfect MC Hazel leads the seemly perfect life in and outside of school but when she finds her supposedly perfect boyfriend hooking up with her best friend, her world comes crashing down. However all is not lost as Felix, her best friend’s brother decides to help Hazel get her much-needed revenger; fake a relationship and ultimately break her douche-bag ex’s heart.

Not Okay Cupid!!! First things first: I received an ARC through NetGalley.
The book comes out january 11th and you should totally check it out.
For me this book is a total 5 star book, cause at least the book has everything that I need in a good story.
The writing is really good, there is just a wonderful sense of humor and the characters are written so well. I very much enjoyed that.

I was a bit skeptical if I will like this book when I first saw it in Entangled Teen’s request list but I was seriously craving for some light and fluffy read and THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THIS BOOK HAS BROUGHT ME.

I wasn’t really a fan of the “falling-for-your-bestfriend’s-brother” trope. I haven’t read that much books that falls into this category and I’m not a big fan of third-wheels!!!

This book got me hooked from the get-go, I adored the main characters, Hazel and Felix. Hazel is smart, charming a

WARNING! This book contains betrayal, revenge, and that most tempting vice of all, the bad boy you know you can’t have.

Again, loved it! Don't know why but I really enjoy Entangled Crush's this innocent love.
Half of the book went like a flash, I was like "Woah, I am already 50% done?".
Loved the characters, I loved that Felix was not the cliché bad boy character, he was a player but he was good.

This book is a light, cute and fast read. I flew through it in no time! It's pretty funny, too. And straight to the point. Hazel catches her bestfriend and boyfriend getting chummy with each other in the school cafeteria, confronts them, and her idiot 'ex-boyfriend' says something like 'it just happened' and all that BS, making it out like he only went out with Hazel because of her brain, straight A student that she is. So Hazel is all like, Boy, you are going down. Thus the revenge plan. Her ac ...more

Love, love, love. It's like the Beatles could see into the future to the swoony-ness that is Hazel Basil and Felix James (aka Felix the Cat and Player of La Playa) when they came up with the song "All You Need Is Love." I've...if I'm being honest...not understood the appeal of holiday themed books before reading Heidi R.

Not Okay Cupid was a sweet and cute read just wished there was a little less inner monologues going on as it did get a little repetitive at times.
The characters were entertaining and the plot was ok.

I think Not Okay Cupid would be a hit with a younger reader.

Thank you Entangled Crush via NetGalley for the advance copy.

First off, I am so mad at myself for not getting to this book sooner. I blame it on my horrible reading slump and most of all ME. I don’t know what I was thinking, I don’t know what my reading slump was thinking, getting in the way of me and this gem of a book.

Oh my God, the horror.
I wish I could reverse the time and stop myself from wasting my time. And money.
Like, why oh why did I read this book?
I guess it was the sugar high of reading one good book from this publisher's line made me wanna read another from them.
Anyway, my complaints:
- Characters that have one single characterisation. Seriously. This is even worse than Twilight (and that was one book I would never ever even wish upon my enemies to read and bear the pain). At least in term of cha

Hazel has her entire future planned out. She and her boyfriend are going to get into the same college, then the same grad school, and then they’ll have 2.5 kids together and live in a house with a white picket fence. At least that was the plan until he cheated on her with her best friend Kimmy. Now Hazel doesn’t know what to do. Luckily, someone else does. Felix the Player of La Playa (also Kimmy’s older brother) has a plan for revenge.

This book had so much potential. I really mean that. The pre

NetGalley. Thanks for the copy.

"Everyone hates Donald Trump," says the internal thoughts of the main character, Hazel McCallister. Honestly, at this point I don't care whether or not the book is downright horrible (which it isn't, for your information), I'm giving this book a Five just for saying that. But unfortunately, that's not very positive of me and let's not bring too much politics into this. (And I myself will not bring any more politics into the mix.)

Today is the day that Not Okay, Cupid comes out, so it was the perfect day to dig into to this book and write this review. I have to be honest, after reading The Girlfriend Request (also out today), my hopes weren’t that high for this book… BUT, I was wrong! Not Okay, Cupid totally surpassed my expectations, and that’s part of why I gave it 4 stars, besides some problems that it did have.

I absolutely loved the writing. It was fun, witty and easy to read I’ll tell you guys this, whatever else

From the summary of this one I should have ate this one up: fake relationship, perfect girl falling for the bad boy, FAKE RELATIONSHIP. It was a recipe for success...except, it wasn't. I had a hard time connecting to the characters and thought that there was too much in between the fake relationship stuff that made it kind of blah.

Fluffy. Frothy. Shallow. Light.

The story is not unusual. Best friend cheats with the perfect boyfriend. Cue devastation, tears, frustration and plans for revenge. But as with every plot there is always a way to set it apart from others. This one however, goes with the sea of sameness. In other words, unimpressive.

Hazel and Felix are very different in that she’s a Type A girl while he is known as the La Playa, as in sleeping-around-with-commitment-iss

Hazel has plans, big plans. She's got her whole life figured out until at least the age of thirty. She will marry her high school boyfriend Jay and will have a great, perfect family with him. Of course that won't happen until after university and while they're students they will of course stay a couple. Only then Jay betrays Hazel with her best friend Kimmy and Hazel is heartbroken.

Not Okay Cupid is a heart-meltingly sweet read that will make you smile every once in a while. It’s just a really good book. Yes, you know that it will have a happy ending (the title gives that one away plus) all Entangled books have that in common, the happily ever after. That doesn’t mean that I enjoyed this book any less at all.

Firstly I’d like to thank the publisher for approving my NetGalley request for this eBook. This was another book where the blurb caught my attention and made me want to know more.

Once I started reading, the first thing that stood out for me was the young feel to the storyline. The writing style matched this beautifully so that I could almost imagine I was right there alongside the characters.

The cheating scene was uncomfortable to read and left me with mixed feelings – pity for Hazel but also pr

OMG- did I ever love this novel. NOT OKAY CUPID is pure YA gold, with a cast of endearing characters who will work their way into your heart and not let go. I loved Hazel with a thousand loves. She's eager to please and scorned by her best friend and cheating boyfriend, sending her right into the arms of Felix, who is equally adorable. The banter between Felix and Hazel alone is worth the price of this book. Seriously, the dialogue is quick and witty, and absolutely the most fun I've read in a l ...more

I love these kinds of books. The whole "fake boyfriend" thing which ends up being more than you ever thought it'd be? I eat them up. They're predictable and fluffy and a walking cliche, but I love them all the same.

This one was a great book, easy to read and a quick read as well. I loved Felix. He was the best character by far. He had his own personality and he owns it. Plus he's a real softy deep down.
