The Boyfriend Thief by Shana Norris

This book is great because the author has created real, flawed, believable characters that you can picture hanging out with. A lot of authors can't really achieve that three dimensional feel, and believe me I know it is almost impossible to get a character out of the two dimensional area. But other than that there's a real sweetness in Zac and Avery's relationship. It feels real, ya know? And honestly, as coldhearted as it sounds, it's probably something I would have done if I needed the money. But I don't know anybody who's rich like that. This whole Book describes what I would have done.(Except for Impulsive Cleaning cause really? No).
Here's the Blurb:

Avery James has her life planned out: this summer she'll work with a humanitarian program in Costa Rica, next year she'll graduate at the top of her class, and after that, college and medical school. Perfect, planned, total order.

The only problem: getting the rest of the money she needs for the trip before the deadline. Hannah Cohen, her biggest competition for the valedictorian title, makes an unexpected offer: If Avery can win over Zac Greeley and make him break up with Hannah before the end of the school year, a check for five hundred dollars is all hers. Faced with the prospect of spending yet another summer working as a giant hot dog, it's an offer Avery can't refuse.

Zac is nothing like Avery expected. Within his chaotic world of midnight slushie runs and spontaneous dance parties, her total order is quickly falling apart while Hannah seems poised to get everything she wants. But just how much is Avery willing to give up for the perfect, planned life?

                                                   I give this Book Three Stars.

“The only person who can make you miserable is yourself, if you hold back because you’re too afraid of failure to take a chance.”
