This is the first book by Gwen Hayes I have read and I really enjoyed this story. Layney Logan was such an incredible character and well defined. It’s Layney’s senior year and she is co-chief editor with Beelzebub (aka Jimmy Foster) her arch nemesis. With funding and cuts, the Journalism class is about to be void but Layney is determined to keep it alive and running no matter the cost.

Layney is set up on 12 random dates for a fundraising calendar which is anything but enticing to her. After an 8th grade break-up, Layney couldn’t let go of her hurt and hate she feels toward Jimmy Foster which had driven her to hate all high school boys….especially Foster! Little does Layney know, Foster still harbors feelings for the Ice Queen Layney and proves he’s anything but the bad guy she claims he is.

This was quite a cute story. I loved the snarky dialogue that Hayes has contributed. I have to say that one of my favorite parts was when Layney was on her karaoke date and Jimmy was called to the stage to sing “Like A Virgin”!! I laughed so hard and still brings giggles when I think about it.

This is a Love-Hate story that will have you laughing, sulking, and cheering on the protagonist to open up and feel love again. I would recommend this book and thanks to my buddy for the recommendation as well. I don’t think it would have even crossed my mind to read if it hadn’t been for that.
