Amanda Setasha Hall (azenakira) | 1051 comments The one guy Bailey Rydell can’t stand is actually the boy of her dreams—she just doesn’t know it yet.

Classic movie fan Bailey “Mink” Rydell has spent months crushing on a witty film geek she only knows online as Alex. Two coasts separate the teens until Bailey moves in with her dad, who lives in the same California surfing town as her online crush.

Faced with doubts (what if he’s a creep in real life—or worse?), Bailey doesn’t tell Alex she’s moved to his hometown. Or that she’s landed a job at the local tourist-trap museum. Or that she’s being heckled daily by the irritatingly hot museum security guard, Porter Roth—a.k.a. her new archnemesis. But life is a whole lot messier than the movies, especially when Bailey discovers that tricky fine line between hate, love, and whatever it is she’s starting to feel for Porter.

And as the summer months go by, Bailey must choose whether to cling to a dreamy online fantasy in Alex or take a risk on an imperfect reality with Porter. The choice is both simpler and more complicated than she realizes, because Porter Roth is hiding a secret of his own: Porter is Alex…Approximately.

Karen Barber | 10078 comments Up to ch10. Easy read. I’m trying to finish another or I wouldn’t be putting this down. Light but entertaining.


Karen Barber | 10078 comments Up to ch15. Was wondering when things would start moving in the direction I assume they’re going to.


Rebecca (rebeccasg) Such a fun read! I didn't want to put it down either.


Karen Barber | 10078 comments Up to ch19. Liking these two together. Not too sickly.


Karen Barber | 10078 comments Finished. Review on home page. Pretty much as expected. Some nice moments and some underdeveloped characters, but generally a cute summer read.
