Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - This book sounds incredibly adorable. I think I may need it in my life! It sounds like something I need to take along with me when I go to the beach 🙂

Estelle - Casee, Kristan definitely made me want to read more romances. I haven’t in SO long. I can’t wait to read another one of her books soon. I hope you enjoy Somebody to Love. I think you will. Some of the characters are just so quirky. And the lines are pretty hysterical. Enjoy!

Casee Marie - Ahh, loved reading this! I just got this one for my birthday (or, you know, I picked it up when I was letting people buy me presents because they always say “Casee, you have such weird, obsessive taste in books so will you just pick something out so I don’t have to buy you another gift card?”) and I can’t wait to read it over the summer. I’ve never read Kristan Higgins, and I’m always a little nervous with an author I’ve never read. I thought from the synopsis that I stood a good chance of enjoying it, but reading such a nice review definitely helps to be sure!

Jamie - One of my IRL friends LOVES this author and always tries to get me to read her but I always thought I wouldn’t dig it. I will be reconsidering that after this rave review!

Estelle - Sharon, I need a book attached to me at all times plus a backup. It’s ridiculous. I wish I had a picture of the bag full of BSC & Sweet Valley books I brought with one on vacations. I also liked the Thing One nickname. It was cute and sort of catchy. haha. Thx for commenting!

Estelle - Mands, can you get a copy of this book? Let me know! I have the ARC and I can send it to you! I think you would love it!

Sharon @ Fictionally Inclined - The idea of going on a road trip and not bringing a book along is completely foreign to me, even now.

I’m so glad you enjoyed this book, too! It really was a great read. Such great characters, and I always love a good swoon-inducing romance. Also, I had a strange liking for the “Thing One” nickname. Not sure why, but I adored it. It was so perfect.

I definitely agree about your casting for James – yes, please!

VeganYANerds - I’ve never read any of Kristin Higgins’ books but you have me wanting to read this, Estelle! It sounds like a fun read and perfect for a holiday trip!

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - First it was Lizzie McGuire, and today it’s Justin Bieber. I mean, my goodness Estelle, I want to be your friend. I was totally singing the Biebs song in my head when I clicked to open the review from my reader. AHHH! And then I started reading your post and laughed when you wrote that you thought of that song, too. I was anti-Bieber until I saw his movie (on opening night no less) and then I finally got what all the commotion was about. So anywayyyyy….. I totally saw this book in the library the other day and thought about getting it. Now I’m definitely going to pick it up! Can’t wait to read this – it sounds so cute! Plus, I’m also a sucker for books about home makeovers (and anything on HGTV dealing with said topic). Like really though. Glad I’m not the only one who loves a good home makeover 🙂

Jess @ Gone with the Words - I’m so happy you enjoyed it!! I totally loved this one too 🙂 Also, I wish I was one of those people who could read in a car..but I get carsick 🙁 But it’s ok because instead I listen to audiobooks! Great review, Estelle!

PS – Joshua Bowman would be fantastic! 😀
