Genre: YA Contemporary F/F Romance
Two girls. One kiss.
The last person Riya Johnson expected to run into at her new summer camp is Courtney Chastain—her childhood best friend and the girl who broke her heart after a secret, mind-blowing, life-altering kiss. She definitely didn’t expect to be sharing a bunk bed with her for four long weeks.
Courtney has what every girl wants—she’s beautiful, rich, and the object of every boy’s desire at Camp Pine Ridge. Too bad none of them make her feel an iota of what Riya’s kiss did all those years ago. But Courtney needs to uphold appearances at all costs—even if it means instigating an all-out prank war with Riya as her main target.
Neither girl can stop thinking about the other...but that doesn’t mean they can give up past hurts and take a chance on a future together.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains drinking, sexual situations, and a fairy-tale romance sure to make your heart melt.
|Riya and Courtney shared a kiss before Riya moved away.|
It was a kiss that caused a ripple effect for both girls.
Now after 4 years they are back together at camp. Where Courtney is a Royal and Riya is a Jock, and they don't kiss, let along mingle. But they do pull shenanigans on each group to prove who is better. Courtney deals with her feelings by being a mean girl. Riya can't turn off her feelings for Courtney. While Riya comes from a supportive family who embraced her difference, Courtney's mom wants a cookie cutter Stafford Wife. But that does NOT excuse how Courtney treats people.
What I kept waiting for were flashbacks into their past and how things happened. But nope. Nothing. I did like Colt, Courtney's twin brother. He is GREAT. But Courtney, ugh, what a hag. She doesn't deserve Riya.
It is a good YA book. Maybe aimed towards the later end of middle school kids. But still a good book that isn't just about a boy stalking a girl and it being okay, cause they are creepy and in love.
