Goodreads Synopsis:

Summers are supposed to be fun, right? Not mine. I've got a job at my dad's company, which is sponsoring a college scholarship competition. I just found out that, in addition to my job assisting the competing interns, I'm supposed to vote for the winner. Totally not what I signed up for. 

There's a crazy guy running the competition like it's an episode of Survivor. Then there’s Carlos, who is, well, very distracting –– in a good way. But I can't even think about him that way because Crazy Guy says any fraternizing on the job means instant disqualification for the intern involved.

As if that's not enough, an anonymous weirdo with insider intel is trying to sabotage my dad's company on social media...and I'm afraid it's working.
Much as I'd love to quit, I can't. Kristoffs Never Quit is our family motto. I just hope there's more than one survivor by the end of this summer. 

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

Entangled Teen asked me if I was interested in reviewing this book since I participated in the Julie Cross blog tour. I jumped at the opportunity (as always) because this book sounded really good. I cannot wait to get this started.

Thank you so much to Entangled Teen for providing me with a copy of this book. Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book for free. Please note that this does not affect me in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

I loved how simple the writing is. I think that this style worked really well with the story. I also think that this added to strengths of the book. I loved the dialogue. I am absolutely in love with the banter and awkward moments in this book. They were done so well.

Plot Thoughts:

I loved the plot. There wasn't insta-love in the typical sense but I still felt like it a natural progression in this case. I also really enjoyed that the book focused more than just developing the relationship between the love interests. The book focused on developing the relationship between each character who was part of the internship.  The book was filled with geeky moments that just made me so happy.

Character Thoughts:

I loved our main character, Laurel. She was funny and considerate. She was a strong character that I could relate to. She was pretty much the representation of me on paper. I loved the other characters. They were all interesting and fun to read about.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I thought this book was really good. I absolutely loved everything about this book. It was the perfect book to get me back into the mood of reading. I powered through this because the writing was easy to get into and it was simple. The plot was entertaining and overall just a great experience. The characters were a joy to read. I liked seeing how their relationships developed and how this book wasn't what I expected. Thank you so much to Entangled Teen for providing me with a copy of this book.

About the Author:

Award-winning romance author Lisa Brown Roberts still hasn’t recovered from the teenage catastrophes of tweezing off both eyebrows, or that time she crashed her car into a tree while trying to impress a guy. It’s no wonder she loves to write romantic comedies.   
Lisa’s books have earned praise from Kirkus Reviews, Publishers Weekly, and the School Library Journal. She lives in Colorado with her family, in which pets outnumber people. Connect with Lisa at www.lisabrownroberts.com.

Yours in Reading,
