My Review: 4 Stars

This author has made a great transition to the YA genre and this one is my favorite of the series so far. 

Olivia and Ethan have been best friends forever and why would she want to ever ruin that? In an attempt to win over her crush and help the high school band get to Paris, she comes up with a brilliant plan--Match with the Quarterback. It's a way for everyone to take a matchmaking test and the draw is to see who is matched with the ever elusive Ethan.  

I remember back in high school, we had something similar. Everyone could take a test, for a small fee, and see who their top 10 matches were and I was sooo curious. Of course, I did it and of course, I was surprised with my matches. I don't recall if anyone "hooked up" because of their results, but that seemed to be the case for Olivia and her school. Because of my past experience, this aspect of the story delighted my inner teen and when the results caused Olivia to realize her true feelings, my heart nearly sang with joy.

Ethan and Olivia were great characters with a fantastic friendship that almost made me envious. I love the way the tangles were all smoothed out along the way, especially when Olivia asked for almost more than Ethan could give. In a typical teen fashion, communication is lacking, oblivion is prevalent, and the insecurities are strong, but it's ultimately swoon worthy. Please keep writing the Rules of Love Series!

Content: mild romance, some light innuendo, but perfectly acceptable and clean for any teen.
