High school with some depth. Sweet.

Heartwarming and humorous, YA, G-rated, romantic comedy

Harley is suffering through the dual misfortunes of gaining an unwanted stepmother and stepbrother, Conner, who is her same age, and moving to a new town and a new school in the middle of her junior year. Her father very recently remarried, and the move came about because her stepmother got an outstanding job offer across the country.

Harley was a nerdy, artistic outsider at her old school who had been teased and bullied far too often over

(4.5 stars) - Sometimes losing is winning

[This is book 2 in a duet - it runs roughly parallel to the 1st book & will have spoilers for it if you haven't read it yet]

Now we get to learn what was happening with Harley while her new stepbrother, Conner, was struggling with his challenges.

Harley has always been on the school fringe. She successfully managed to navigate her way from bully target to invisible girl at her old school. So she's pretty freaked out, and more than a little suspicious,

-‘All combined, she’d looked sweet and vulnerable, scared but ready to fight. She’d looked like a sweetheart and a little warrior all at once. She was an enigma, and that was so very appealing. It made me want to find her, to talk to her, to—‘

-‘She was back to eyeing me oddly. “Is this a prank?” I frowned down at her. “Excuse me?” “This.” She waved a hand at me. “You, being nice, the whole ‘let me carry your books and walk you to class’ thing. This is some prank on the new girl, right?” “What?

I previously read and reviewed the first book in this duet, Charming the Cheerleader. It was good, but this one was great! I really did like reading Conner and Rosalie's story in the previous one, but I love Harley and Tristan. They're both so real, in a way that many YA characters are not. Yes, there are the typical cliches of high school, but you know? I didn't really experience those in my high school. I mean, to some extent I did I guess, but not the way you typically read. So to have ...more

I love Maggie Dallen’s books and scrambled to read this one (we are ya liking binge-fest here; it’s past 2:30am and I’m writing this moments after finishing it). I adored its predecessor, Charming the Cheerleader (separately reviewer) and thought it was the perfect high school YA romance. As great as it is, though, I was wrong as this book is better. Harley and Tristan are wonderful complex characters who have an emotional growth in this book that’s incredibly appealing. Having said that, this ...more

I already fell in like with Harley in book #1, and I was very much looking forward to reading her story.
I adored both Harley and Tristan, and the developing romance was beautifully written and thoroughly swoon-worthy (as is par for the course in Maggie Dallen's books). Case in point:
"And then I was kissing her, and I lost touch with reality for a long, sweet, blissful moment. She was warm and soft beneath me, her lips parting for mine like this was something we’d always done. It was familiar

Absolutely loved this follow up of the first book which really should be read first and follows Harley’s step brother story. This story is sweet and adorable Harley is very suspicious of Tristan who is her complete opposite while she is artsy he is a jock and her new high schools quarterback so when he shows interest in her she doubts him big time. It was a little frustrating to see Harley be her own worst enemy when Tristan is such a sweet and genuine guy but love when Conner her new step ...more

Interesting Conclusion. The first thing to know about this book is that it really does need to be read second, after Charming the Cheerleader. Why? Because the timelines start at roughly the same points and you get two people's views on a lot of the same events - even while telling their own story about their own high school romance. Also, there are some pretty decent spoilers for Charming the Cheerleader if you attempt to read this book first, so be forewarned there. Beyond doing my best to ...more

This second book in the duet was really good reading! Harley challenged her stepbrother and he made a bet with her. If he got the cheerleader to go with him to homecoming, she had to go with the quarterback! This story tells how Harley changes from the geeky artsy non-social pupil to become the quarterback's date. That guy really had his work cut out for him to convince Harley he wasn't a bully trying to trick her. But, of course, Maggie Dallen makes it work out by homecoming!

Cute read about a geeky artist and your not-so-typical quarterback. Wonderful continuation to Charming the Cheerleader. Love Ms Dallen's writing style. Witty, flowing, easy to read, likeable characters.
