Thank you Ms. Clarisse David for having me review your new book! ❤


No bets. No fake relationships. Just a very real one that has to be kept under wraps.

Seventeen-year-old Melissa wants to dye her hair cotton candy pink and focus on her ukulele instead of Physics. But she can’t. As the daughter of a Catholic school principal, living up to her model student image 24/7 is a must. Something’s about to give under all the pressure. She only hopes it isn’t her.

Getting involved with a troublemaking basketball player is the last possible thing she needs…

Lance is used to getting what he wants. With a pretty face he uses to full advantage and his role as co-captain of the basketball team, the easy way is the only way he’s ever known. Until the day he notices the prim Melissa he’s known forever is actually hot and decides to ask her out. He has no idea he’s about to learn the lesson of a lifetime.

Not getting what he wants might exactly be what he needs…


“She thinks I’m too much of a flight risk.”

This is the second book written by Clarisse David that I have read and like the first time, I felt butterflies in my stomach. Prom Queen Perfect was the first one. 🙂

This book is so cute and the characters were adorable. I think it is meant for readers younger than me but it kept my attention and interest. It also made me think of my high school days and those puppy love stories. It might be a cliche but the author did something that made the book a special one.

The enemies-turned-lovers trope is so fine for me and it made me smile and laugh a little bit, especially knowing that they were teens. But what I love the most is, even at a young age, the fact they fought for their love for each other.
