Adorkable (ah-dor-kuh-bul): Descriptive term meaning to be equal parts dorky and adorable. For reference, see Sally Spitz.
Seventeen-year-old Sally Spitz is done with dating. Or at least, she’s done with the horrible blind dates/hookups/sneak attacks her matchmaking bestie, Hooker, sets her up on. There’s only so much one geek girl and Gryffindor supporter can take.
Her solution: she needs a fake boyfriend. And fast.
Enter Becks, soccer phenom, all-around-hottie, and Sally’s best friend practically since birth. When Sally asks Becks to be her F.B.F. (fake boyfriend), Becks is only too happy to be used. He’d do anything for Sal–even if that means giving her PDA lessons in his bedroom, saying she’s “more than pretty,” and expertly kissing her at parties.
The problem: Sally’s been in love with Becks all her life–and he’s completely clueless.
This book features two best friends, one special edition Yoda snuggie, countless beneath-the-ear kisses and begs the question:
Who wants a real boyfriend when faking it is so much more fun?
Adorkable is all you need to know!
Such a cute story!
I read this book really quickly and loved it. One of my favorite type of romance books is when the the book boyfriend and girl were best friends before they got together and this is one of them.
In this book, I liked how Sally’s best friend, Lilian (a.k.a Hooker), and her mom always planned things together for Sally. Sally’s mom seemed to have a good relationship with both Hooker and Becks. The only thing that I didn’t love about the story were the names in this book, they were not my favs.
I really liked how Sally and Becks were so close and shared so many memories and adventures together. They seemed to have such a fun friendship that everyone would be jealous of. This story was so fun and of course, adorkable, and I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good contemporary cute romance.
