Contemporary Romance, Young Adult Romance
Mai Senn knows Anthony Adams is no good for her - no matter how hard she might crush on him. She's valedictorian; he's a surf bum. She's got plans, he's got his art. Complete opposites in every way. Vinegar and baking soda, they once joked. A chemical reaction that bubbled.
Yeah, they bubbled. Maybe still do.
Good thing Anthony's got the perfect plan: two weeks to prove just how not good they are together. Whoever can come up with the worst dateŚsomething the other will seriously hate, proving how incompatible they truly areŚwins.
Like taking a snake-phobe to the Reptile House at the zoo (his idea).
Or a cooking class where they don't even get to eat the food (her idea).
It's all about the competition, and it's meant to help them finally crush their crushes. But it wasn't supposed to be so hot. Or so fun. And when Mai's future becomes at stake, will she be able to do the right thing and quit Anthony forever?

It's a real treat when I come across a YA contemporary romance done well. HOW TO QUIT YOUR CRUSH is certainly that. It's got me giggling and swooning, and I fell in love with the cute, lovable heroine and swoonworthy hero. Understated humor that's got me laughing more than I should. I have plans to reread this book soon!
I love Mai, she's so funny and adorable. I love Anthony, he's the best YA hero I've read in a long time. Not only is he a sexy hunk (with the requisite muscles, being a baseball player), I think what made me decide he's a keeper is the way he feels about Mai, the way he's protective of her and takes care of her. He's also very sweet. Like I said, the best (YA) hero I've read in a long time.
From their first scene, you can really see the chemistry between them, and how they're both so right for each other, despite all the ways they're different. Their dates are the highlights for me--so funny and romantic. They helped each other grow and change to be their best selves, which I think is something we all want with the person we love.
In closing, I super love this book and would recommend this pageturner to every romance junkie who loves YA contemporary romance. There's a previous story (Announcing Trouble) featuring Mai's best friend Josie and I'm off to read that one next.
