Mai Senn knows Anthony Adams is no good for her - no matter how hard she might crush on him. She’s valedictorian; he’s a surf bum. She’s got plans, he’s got his art. Complete opposites in every way. Vinegar and baking soda, they once joked. A chemical reaction that bubbled.

Yeah, they bubbled. Maybe still do.

Good thing Anthony’s got the perfect plan: two weeks to prove just

Apr 22, 2020 rated it really liked it
The dynamics of How to quit your crush are really interesting. Both Mai and Antony have had a difficult upbringing. They are worlds apart but opposites attract.

Mai is focused and driven. Antony isn’t aiming for academic excellence. The pair seem impossible, even after sharing a sweet memory. They both sign up for the same project and decide to try and quit their feelings for each other by having a 2-week fling. Their differences are apparent, but so is their connection.

This is a fun read with

My thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for a free ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
My apologies, but I'm going to have to gush a bit here: what a great, often hilarious, emotionally intelligent (and just plain intelligent) read this was! I love Amy Fellner Dominy's writing. Her world building, her sassy, snappy characters, and witty dialogue always have me coming back for more. She gets better and better with each new book. (I guffawed when I read her tribute to her lo

Announcing Trouble was hands-down the best YA book I read last year. So you can imagine how stoked I was to get my hands on How to Quit Your Crush. I was pumped to get some more time in this world, with these characters, and this completely delicious storytelling.

Amy Fellner Dominy did not disappoint. The magic that I found in Announcing Trouble was not a fluke. I was just as enchanted with this story, every bit as charmed by the writing, and completely in love with the characters. There is such

This was such an adorable story that intrigued me from the very start. The amusing synopsis is what hooked me but I stayed for the wonderful characters and excellent storytelling.

I was really a fan of the author's writing style. It was easy to follow and felt very natural. The plot of the story was intriguing from the start and worked itself out quite well.

How to Quit Your Crush is a standalone young adult contemporary romance by Amy Fellner Dominy. It is set in the same world as her YA contemporary romance, Announcing Trouble. I really enjoyed Announcing Trouble and was super excited to dive back into this world to get Mai and Anthony’s story. But don’t worry- if you are new to this world, you don’t need to read Announcing Trouble first to be able to enjoy How to Quit Your Crush. And I think I enjoyed this one a little more than Announcing Troubl ...more

I have received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

How to Quit Your Crush was such a cute book. In it, you will meet Mai and Anthony. They were sort of together but now they aren't. Oh wait, they are.. but then they aren't? If you are confused, then that is the correct feeling. These two were trying to not be together when they really wanted to be. It was a constant roller coaster with them involved.

The reason why they couldn't be together was probably the dumbest thing I

How to Quit Your Crush is a good read for me. I loved the fast pacing and the storyline the most. I have yet read Announcing Trouble where it all started with Josie and Garrett. But it’s okay if you didn’t read it because it really is a different story but the characters are from the same school.

This book follows a story about Maya and Anthony. Both are having crush towards each other but Maya knows Anthony is not good for someone like her. The background of her family confirms that. Her parent

I enjoyed this, but I wanted to enjoy it more than I did. It was fast paced and enjoyable but I found the back and forth between characters emotional POVs annoying, the constant repetition of oh I shouldn’t but, we can’t be together but...., it was irritating. I found it just detracted too much and stop me enjoying it more.its a shame because I loved the previous book in this series (this can be read as standalone) and I’m sure I will love future books as much again, just not disappointed in thi ...more

Mai wanted the "bubbles" to stop. Anthony wanted to extinguish the flame. They embarked on a two week "fling" in order to crush their crush, but their plan may very well have backfired on them.

Announcing Trouble was such a hit for me, and I jumped at the chance to get back into this world. I was always curious as to why Mai and Anthony didn't work out in the last book, and therefore, was interested in getting the full story. I must say, I was surprised by some of the things I learned about these

If you are in the mood for a YA romance that is finally about standing up for yourself despite your family's approval, then How to Quit Your Crush by Amy Fellner Dominy is the read for you. I have to admit that this was another slow-burn romance which seems to be the theme around here lately in the books I have read recently. I have to admit I wasn't keen on the main female lead but at least she finally came to her senses at the end after a bout of jealousy kicked through, but took her long enou ...more

How to Quit Your Crush was an adorably sweet young adult romance that had me swooning like a little school girl falling for her first crush! Mai and Anthony were an unlikely pair and even though she was convinced that he was the WRONG guy for her, I just knew that he was Mr. RIGHT and she would eventually realize that he might just happen to be her happily ever after. With every moment these two shared I found myself falling even more hopelessly

How to Quit Your Crush by Amy Fellner Dominy is a sweet summer story about Mai and Anthony and their efforts to stop being attracted to each other.
Obviously things do not go as planned (not a spoiler!) and that's when the fun begins.

I cannot tell you how happy I was when I got a notification that this book was up on NetGalley! I loved the first one and couldn’t wait to delve back into this world but this time focusing on the lives of Mai and Anthony.

This can be read as a standalone but it will spoil Announcing Trouble!

I found myself completely addicted to this story and ended up reading it in one sitting. I could not put this book down and I was so desperate to find out how their story finished. This book made me laugh, i

I love this book so much. I love the characters, the flirty banter, and just the whole story. It’s an enemies to “lovers” story with a little something extra. Mai is driven. And that’s an understatement. She has a plan for everything, knows what she will do with her life down to the most minute detail, and absolutely doesn’t take risks. There are reasons for this, reasons that make Mai so much more than a one-dimensional character. Anthony is the complete opposite. For his own reasons, he is an ...more

HOW TO QUIT YOUR CRUSH is a sweet, heartfelt, swoon-worthy romance. The characters are endearing and easy to like, with plenty of charming banter, and a story that pulls on the reader's emotions. A delightfully entertaining read from beginning to end!

These characters were really great! I loved Anthony! Oh, my word! This boy! He made me laugh so much! He was all charm and bad-boy swagger (the innuendo and lines that came out of his mouth!) mixed with this good heart and a serious addiction to Mai

Despite the Wattpad-romance cover, this book is excellent!

Mai is determined, a planner, and she expects to be what she is expected to be, a Senn, however she is adopted and feels out of place sometimes.

Anthony is a slacking high school student who is and hangs out with jocks, he also experienced a tragedy— losing his father to cancer.

As soon as I saw Fellner-Dominy was releasing another YA novel, I knew I needed to read it. I didn’t even read the blurb. So it was a pleasant surprise to be put in the same world as Announcing Trouble, and my excitement somehow grew even more. The author nails the fragile but exciting precipice of adulthood again with, How to Quit Your Crush.

Maya seemed to be a manifestation of anxiety. I found this critical (and it caused a few adorable scenes) in today’s world. Not just teens

This was a little tale of opposites attracting in the cutest way. Maya, aka, Mai, is a type a personality. She has a plan for her future. A future that doesn’t have room for high school baseball star, Anthony. But for some reason, the two of them can’t stop thinking about each other.

I actually really liked this but did not end up loving it as I expected. The chemistry was on fire, the banter was swoony, the writing (unsurprisingly) was amazing. But mother eff, this was probably the most frustrating book I've ever read. I don't know why, but the back and forth about Mai and Anthony's feelings with each other just pissed me off.

Every decision that Mai makes in her life is based on what those she cares about would think. Whether it comes to her studying, her plans for the future and the boy she likes.

How to Quit Your Crush by Amy Fellner Dominy is a sweet, fun, and delightful young adult contemporary romance and part of the Entangled Teen Crush series. Mai Senn is the high school valedictorian, and all round high achiever. Anthony Adams is an artist, and has no plans to go to college. Despite these two being opposites, they can't stay away from each other, even planning bad dates to get over each other. I really enjoyed this sweet story and all the emotions both Anthony and Mai went through. ...more

Anthony and Mai are complete opposites and they don't make sense on paper. Now, if they could only convince themselves of that and so they decide to have a 2 week fling to make each other hate the idea of being together. I LOVED this premise!

This is the second book with characters from the same school, but it can be read as a stand-alone. I haven't read the first book and have understood everything.
