About this deal

There was the ex’s, the fake dating to piss off mom’s boyfriend, the trying to maybe get rid of mom’s boyfriend, their coworkers and the bet, and also Charlie and Bailey falling for each other. They didn’t get off to the best start but this is a new beginning and whilst they are still polar opposites, she starts to look forward to hanging out and gossiping about the waterpark guests and their coworkers—particularly two who keep flirting with each other.

I’m never drawn to the genre, and yet, each time I finish a YA book, I’m surprised at how much I enjoy them - this one very much included.Their friendship was fantastic and I loved how it started to become more especially after the fake dating weekend. Our two main characters meet on a flight and years later run into each other and end up working together at a water park. It's rare that I plow through a book and almost devour it, but in this case, I couldn't help myself.

His relationship with Bailey was incredibly sweet and I enjoyed them as friends that slowly transitioned into something more. Much of the story is about both of their issues with recent break ups and on top of that both of them having issues with each of their parents' divorces. her internal conflict with her parents’ divorce and her mom’s new boyfriend were well done and i liked how everything wrapped up in that regard. This is my third Lynn Painter book and while i enjoyed the others i read by her more (Better than the Movies will always be my fav), this was still a lot of fun! And are we seriously going to just ignore him saying that IT'S TOTALLY FINE THAT HE SAW HER WHILE SHE WAS WEARING JUST A SHIRT WITH NO UNDERWEAR OR ANYTHING BECAUSE HE HAS A DAUGHTER HER AGE?

Charlie and Bailey meet each other randomly a few times during the course of their early teenage life. I could have done with a little bit less of Charlie being a complete ass and trying to ignore his feelings, but I liked the way things worked out in the end. Who then turns out to be a tall drink of half regular, half diet coke (iykyk), funny, sarcastic CINNAMON BUN WITH CREAMY CHEESE ICIING.
