The Rules of Persuasion
2) Make it believable (his rule)
After tragedy hit her family, Meg Matthews officially crossed the line from “good girl” to “bad girl.” Motorcycle? Check. Graffiti? Check. The only thing Meg hadn’t planned on was blackmail. Too bad now a certain infuriating boy holds Meg’s future in his hands…
When Luke Prescott—star pitcher and town golden boy— ...more
The Story-The Rules of Persuasion was 95% predictable, but 100% full of angsty cuteness. Honestly, if you have read any YA contemporary where a boy or girl get’s someone to be their fake boyfriend or girlfriend then you have read this book. The only the thing that is different is the circumstances surrounding the initiation of fake relationship. This review may contain what is considered spoilers, but honestly I think everything I write in here sh ...more
The Rules of Persuasion is a young adult contemporary romance from Amity Hope. It follows one of my favorite tropes...the fake relationship trope. But this one starts out with a little blackmail, which is always fun. The Rules of Persuasion was a cute read that I really enjoyed.
Meg and Luke are the main characters of The Rules of Persuasion, and I have to say they were really interesting. Together and separately. Fir ...more
I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it either, it left me somewhere in-between. There are definitely some parts that could have been improved or written differently, but over all I did enjoy it.
THINGS I LIKED:
-The writing style
-The relationship between Meg and Luke
-The lack of sexualisation? not ...more
So much to love in this fake relationship turned true love story.
Five Things I Loved About The Rules of Persuasion:
1. I have read many books where a fauxmance turns into a romance, but I still love it. I really adored seeing Luke and Meg's relationship evolve and change. In an effort to make their relationship look "real", they began spending time together, but eventually, they began seeking solace in each other. It was all sorts of awww-sweet for me.
2. The sibling connecti ...more
I received this E-ARC via NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
If I had not read To All the Boys I Loved Before by Jenny Han in the last few months, I would have probably given this a 3 star instead. But the plot line comes off almost the entirely same story, but not as well written. Some of the characterization of the characters is problematic and there's no real development of the characters - things just sort of happen to them. And their story progresses. Bu ...more
Meg Matthews knows she shouldn't have been tagging her high school that fateful night. It was risky and slightly careless, but she couldn't resist giving her sister such a public tribute. At first ...more
And another thing I never tire of is the whole “fake relationship” plot. At least the ones I have read have been fun and unique in their own ways. And this author did a wonderful job making th ...more

I LOVED The Rules of Persuasion! This story never had a dull moment which made it impossible to put down.
First, you have Meg, who is dealing with a serious family tragedy and tries to cope by driving around town on her motorcycle, spray painting graffiti. Even though her doing all this was the result of somet...more
This book was one of the first I read from Entangled Teen, and it helped me to fall in love with all of the books they publish, as they are just perfect YA contemporary reads. The Rules of Persuasion follow Meg, who has become a 'bad girl' who loves going around town and vandalising different things, to leave her name on something, and cope with the tragedy her family have faced. When the 'good ...more
I LOVED IT! Five stars and here is why:
First off, the sweet and sassy banter between Meg and Luke kept the book's pacing at a rapid rate. I read pages and pages without even reaching over to grab my cup to sip my coffee! Enemies to lovers or a faux-romance is a story I absolutely enjoy because there is so much an author can do with it and Amity Hope roc ...more
Things I Liked
The fake dating trope is always a win for me. Yes, it's predictable, but it's always a lot of fun too!
GUYS I really loved this book! Meg and Luke are such couple goals they are so awesome. I really do love books from Entangled they have such awesome variety of contemporary romances they never fail to disappoint.
Luke the golden boy and star pitcher has everything or so it would seem, in reality he has a father who tells him what to do. Luke finds it hard to tell his father he has no desire in joining the business but he wants to be a ...more
The secondary characters were props; their presence added zilch to the story. Yes, they listened to Meg complain about kissing the guy she now likes but that was about it. I didn’t connect with any of the friends and I kept forgetting their names. What good are they for except listening ...more
I'd like to thank Netgalley, Entangled Teen, and Chapter by Chapter book tours for giving me the opportunity to read this amazing read. As with every Entangled Teen read I've read, I'm going to have to get a physical copy ...more

This book, as much as I was rooting for it, did not ‘wow’ me as much as I wanted it to. Don’t get me wrong, it was still a pretty good book, but I did have a few issues with it. Before I talk about those, I do want to give it some praise. The Rules of Persuasion is an adorable story following badass biker chick Meg and trust fund future ...more
Meg and Luke were never on each others radar, until one night he catches her doing something bad and realizes he can use that to get her to be his fake girlfriend, easy right? With some rules set what could possible go wrong.
I felt for Meg and Luke. Both were dealing with major stuff, both completely different problems, but nonetheless they needed someone. I felt they were good together and I loved his caring side, always wanting to do nice things for her.
My only complaint is, ...more
Meg is a feisty rebel, but unfortunately for her, she has just been caught getting up to mischief. Meg has her reasons, but she is not big on sharing.
Luke needs to get his ex-girlfriend off his back. After catching Meg damaging school property, he decides she is the perfect girl to help him with his problem. He blackmails her into being his fake girlfriend.
This story has been written a million times before, but I really enjoyed this version. Luke may be popular, and g ...more
Rating: 2,5 stars
The Rules of Persuasion was a cute and typical YA contemporary. It was a fun read, but nothing special. The characters were likable enough, despite lacking some depth and the plot was very predictable yet still enjoyable.
I am so happy I found this book.
Sweet and caring male MC √
Smart female MC √
Good and healthy friendship potrayal √
Pretend lover trope √
This book made me cry, made me smile.

This review is based on the ARC provided by the author and/or the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
I gave this book 4 stars. I flew through this book so quickly, mostly because it wasn't very long to begin with, but also because it was a very character driven book. What I love about contemporary novels is that the books are always about the people, so if you don't like the people, you won't like the book. I'm happy to say that I loved the main characters in this book, meaning I really enjoyed this book.
