Reviews The Way to Game the Walk of Shame

  • V. PARENTAL GUIDANCE: A Court of Wings and Ruin is NEW ADULT/EROTICA but Goodreads editors won't tell you
    Update: Just to add some parental guidance, this is one of the few YA reads marketed as YA that are indeed clean, but I'll add a warning for language. Nothing particularly innaproppiate, no f- bombs. Nothing they wouldn't hear on TV.4.5 stars rounded because FINALLY! A young adult is REALLY a young adult book, and not a NEW ADULT book pretending to lure underage teens to its dirty sex scenes (cough ACOMAF cough)This book is REAL, age appropiate y...

    The Way to Game the Walk of Shame by Jenn P. Nguyen was a book I fell in love with as soon as I read the title. Suddenly I was pulling up everywhere to try and get a review copy of this one. Which was why I was so happy to snag a place on this tour here! I was anticipating it like crazy. I recently read another fake dating kind of story which was No Love Allowed by Kate Evangelista. I've quickly gone from not having read any of these kind to two!...

    Find all of my reviews at: StarsYou’re all familiar with the “Walk of Shame” right . . . . . Oh wait, wrong genre. This book was about the other kind . . . . Meet Taylor. She’s gone through high school pretty much like this . . . . When she gets waitlisted to Columbia rather than immediately accepted, she doesn’t take it well and ends up not only . . . . But also?????? Or at least that’s what ...

    Such an enjoyable book! Proud for this to be my 200th book of the year, honestly. I will be writing a full review for this, hopefully, it may, however, be sans gifs since i won't be updating as frequently for the next week and a bit due to lack of wifi implemented by moving. Thank God for books.

    5 Absolutely Awesome Stars!!! What's it about? After a night together that neither can remember, a straight-A student and the school's hottest player strike a deal in order to protect the girl's reputation and pretend to be a couple. But the lines between pretense and reality soon begin to blur... The best bits: I just love fake-boyfriend stories, especially when they are done well and both characters develop slowly and realistically. This is...

    Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book for review. This does not affect my rating or opinion.”You know this will probably backfire on you."”How?"”You might fall in love with me and won’t want to let go in the end."At some point while reading this book (in one sitting), I asked Jamie if I was allowed to write a love letter to Evan as my review. She said yes, but I’ll tone it down and simply start with Evan.Evan was just the most...

    Same Review Also posted In My Blog: Dreamy AddictionsThis book was one delicious sweet cupcake that will definitely melt and warm your heart. When I first read the synopsis of this book, I knew it was going to be a fun read. The story was so cute and sweet and even though it was a overused fake relationship trope, I really enjoyed this book. Taylor and Evan are so adorable in this and I loved how their fake relationship slowly turned into somethi...

    This is more of a 2-3 stars read. The first half and the last dragged which put me in an odd position. But, the third half is engaging so. I enjoyed reading the banter, and the fake dating trope. I just wish, there’s no slut-shaming, and, “you‘re not like the other girls” litany. I highly advocate for Nguyen not to use the same plot drive next time, because she really knows how to write an engaging contemporary-romance book.
