“”Yes.” He moved closer, his thumb trailing down my jawline. “You don’t need to blackmail me into liking you, Ayla.” “I don’t” I stared at him, loving the way his blond hair flopped over his forehead, hiding the bandage. The way his eyes glittering when he was teasing me about something.”

Synopsis: Ayla and Luke come from two different worlds but brought together by blackmail and a school paper. One night Luke was trying to blow off some steam by getting drunk and recking statues in the towns park. He was trying to forget working and taking care of his little brother Landon, an his mother who is never home. He thought he could just let lose one night and he didn’t think anyone was watching them. Ayla had recorded the whole destruction scene and watched Luke and his friends wreck the place. She had already been on edge with her principle telling her they were taking the funds away from the school paper and the drama club not being able to afford new scripts, because the principle thinks the sports teams need more of the money than the arts. Ayla had also been upset because Luke didn’t show up for his interview with her for the school paper, that’s what the principle thinks people will read, not about what’s happening in society, like with transgender bathrooms. Ayla goes to the the pizza place where Luke works and blackmails him into being her fake boyfriend to win the school election and make a change. Luke reluctantly agrees because what else can he do, he would lose his scholarship and get bad marks on his record. They start to share themselves with each other and really get to know each other. Alya helps him and Landon out when bad stuff happens with his mom (check the book out to find what happened) It’s true what they say opposites do attract.
Thoughts: Raw, real, rough. These works describe the book, the characters, the emotions, the whole story. I don’t think I’ve read a book with such raw and real emotions. There are so many great aspects to this story as a whole that you just need to read it. This one of those books you stay up late to find out what happens at the end and how it wraps up. This is probably one of my favorite reads of the year. I feel so attached to this story. I was absorbed into the story for many hours and I will be going back into it when I reread it (which might be soon.) I thank Rebekah for writing such a beautiful story.
