Review: The Boyfriend Thief by Shana Norris

Image & description from
Avery James doesn’t believe in romance—she’s studied enough biology to know that love is nothing more than hormones and chemicals. Besides, she has more practical goals in mind, namely saving up for a summer humanitarian program in Costa Rica. But when her Diggity Dog House supervisor denies her a raise and Avery finds herself $500 dollars short for the trip of a lifetime, Avery has no choice but to accept an unexpected offer. The deal? She must steal her arch nemesis Hannah’s boyfriend before prom, giving Avery eleven days to seduce Zac Greeley. 

Avery is sure the job will be easy. But a few midnight comedy shows and spontaneous dance parties (not to mention one particularly intimate carwash) later, Avery finds herself questioning everything she’s ever thought about love. Could Zac’s signature cherry-lime Slurpees be causing brain freeze, or is Avery actually starting to fall for him? 

Will Avery be able to steal Zac away from Hannah before he steals Avery’s heart?

My Thoughts:
This book is worth a steal!!
Avery James is barely holding on to the image of someone in complete control she wants the world to perceive.  She's cut herself off from getting close to anyone.  But by protecting herself from getting hurt she's also protected herself from all that good that comes from letting her walls down.  Avery is sure she has love all figured out & she want's nothing to with it!  After hanging out with Zac Greeley she starts to see that maybe she doesn't have it all figured out after all.  The more Avery tries keep control over her life the more it spirals out.  Avery broke my heart.  Things from her past have emotionally crippled Avery.  She tried so hard to protect her heart from being broken and in the end she broke other peoples' hearts along with hers.  By the end of the book Avery was a better version of herself.  You'll love this book.  It will wrap itself around your heart.
Recommended for 14 & up.  Mild language.
