I recently got the opportunity to read Incriminating Dating by Rebekah L. Purdy. I fell in love with the characters and story line from the very beginning. Purdy does an outstanding job creating the characters, settings and plot line. The story has two points of views, one from Ayla Hawkins and another from Luke Pressier. Ayla is what some might say a geek. She is involved with the drama club, editor of the school paper and a huge comic/video game geek. She has an ongoing dislike for Jenna and decides to run against her for class president to try to save the school clubs she loves so much from losing their funding. Jenna is the typical high school popular girl who only cares about the in crowd. This feud makes for a great deal of drama and heated arguments. While Luke is one of the popular kids, a basketball star and loved by everyone, he has a dark secret that he has only told his best friend Brady. Ayla stumbles upon a way to blackmail Luke into being her pretend boyfriend hoping this would help her get enough votes to win the election. Luke has no choice but to go along with this plan or lose his full ride scholarship. Little do they both know they are more alike then they thought and fall for each other. I really felt like this story relates to a lot of teens and high school in general. I look forward to reading more of Rebekah L. Purdy’s books. **Thank you so much to Entangled Publishing for providing me an Advanced Readers Copy of this book on NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review!**
About this book: Ayla Hawkins is ready to stand up for change in her high school. But winning the election for class president against popular Jenna Lee will be impossible without a miracle. When she stumbles upon Mr. Perfect Luke Pressler defacing public property and catches it on camera: cue miracle. Ayla’s got the dirt she needs to get Luke on Team Ayla—in the form of her new fake boyfriend. One mistake. All Luke wanted was a night to goof off, to blow off steam. The pressure of maintaining the perfect facade when his reality was crumbling around him had become too much, and next thing he knew, he was pretending to date Ayla Hawkins. But his little blackmailer turns out to be kind. Honorable. Opinionated. And just the breath of fresh air he didn’t even realize he was suffocating for. But Luke and Ayla come from different worlds, and once the election is over, their fauxmance will be, too. (Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book features adult language, sexual situations, and plenty of girl power. Reading may result in swooning, laughing, and looking for a Luke of your own.)
