“Saved!” meets To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before in this laugh-out-loud romantic comedy that takes a meaningful look at consent and what it means to give it.
“When CeCe’s born-again ex-boyfriend dumps her after they have sex, she follows him to Jesus camp in order to win him back. Problem: She knows nothing about Jesus. But her best friend Paul does. He accompanies CeCe to camp, and the plan—God’s or CeCe’s—goes immediately awry when her ex shows up with a new girlfriend, a True Believer at that.
Scrambling to save face, CeCe ropes Paul into faking a relationship. But as deceptions stack up, she questions whether her ex is really the nice guy he seemed. And what about her strange new feelings for Paul—is this love, lust, or an illusion born of heartbreak? To figure it out, she’ll have to confront the reasons she chased her ex to camp in the first place, including the truth about the night she lost her virginity.”
This was LITERALLY one of the cutest books that I have EVER read…
I enjoy storyline tropes where there is a LARGE love triangle and all parties are attempting to figure out where they now stand in the eyes of the one that they currently or used to love. CeCe’s character was one that I felt all girls and women have found themselves to be casted in, as they navigate the tricky waters of dealing with an ex-boyfriend and a potential new love interest. I loved how the author expanded on the complexities and difficulties of dealing within the confines of these circumstances, while still making the story fun, chaotic, and romantic. Hartl brought me to laughable tears as I rooted for CeCe’s evolution into someone who could be proud of where she came from as well as where she was going. The fun atmosphere of camp also brought a light- hearted texture to the story that made me feel young and full of first time hopes, dreams, and wishes.
As a debut novel from Sonia Hartl-
I look forward to many more!
