The Heartbreak Cure by Amanda Ashby has an expected publication date of December 4th, 2017 by Entangled Publishing and is a contemporary young adult novel. How to get over a heartbreak: Step one: Eat your body weight in brownies. Step two: Throw yourself into your dreams of becoming a famous writer. Step three: Beg your (hottie) ex-neighbor to act as your fake boyfriend. Step four: Skip step three unless you’re ready for some serious fallout. After being dumped and humiliated over the summer, Cat Turner does what any sane girl would do. She asks bad boy Alex Locke to be her fake boyfriend and show the world (and her editor at the school newspaper) that she’s fine. Problem is, the more time she spends with Alex, the more she risks getting her heart broken. For real this time.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a swoony bad boy who will melt your heart, brownies, and witty banter. One, two, or all three might prove addictive.

My thoughts: The Heartbreak Cure was a fun fast-paced romantic read. The romance between Cat and Alex is cute and sweet with a fun high school vibe. The characters are well thought out with fun personalities. The playful arguing between the main characters is the extra touch that is needed to make this a swoon worthy read. The Heartbreak Cure takes place during Cat’s junior year of high school making it the perfect setting for this high school drama. Overall, a fun contemporary young adult read that I recommend to anyone looking for a swoon worthy romance. ** I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
