This dual perspective book is the final installment in The Perfect Series. Jayden Valdez is an overachieving intellectual. Mike McGinnes is Franklin High School’s dumbest jock. Even though they barely know each other, she finds his personality repulsive and he thinks she’s got a giant stick up her you know what. Mike and Jayden are surprised and annoyed when their teacher pairs them together for Spanish tutoring. Both feel it’s a complete waste of time, since nobody could learn from a person who bugs the crap out of them.

Not to mention that their reputations might be ruined if people realize what they’re doing. But it doesn’t take long for Jayden to discover that Mike has a secret—he isn’t the person he appears to be. Much to her dismay, Jayden finds 'Secret Mike' strangely attractive. And for some crazy reason, Mike is amused by Jayden’s clever insults and witty banter. Suddenly, they have a much bigger problem than their mutual disdain. What started as irritating tension is beginning to feel more like romantic tension and acting on it would be a very bad idea.

 Content Description: This is a stand-alone YA contemporary romance with companion novels. While part of a series, each book can be enjoyed independently. It contains minor language, innuendo, crude humor, kissing, and conversations that mention sex. There are no sexual relationships, written or implied, and there's no explicit language. Recommended for ages 14 and up.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  An author with a flair for teen drama and a writing style that draws you in.  The book four in this series seems to be able to standalone.  The chapters have a good flow and for a Teen reader who enjoys light romance with vast degrees of moments that would make them blush.

I'm probably best described as snarky or sarcastic. I also love to crack jokes and consider myself a bit of a comedian. I've been married to a wonderful man since 2005 and have five highly energetic children. We live south of Phoenix, AZ. In addition to cooking, cleaning and playing chauffeur, I coach competitive volleyball, sell real estate and am extensively involved with my church. When I finally get a little down time I like to read and binge watch Netflix. My favorites list includes: Christmas, the color green, chocolate, pizza, pedicures, naps and Diet Coke.
