AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'If you don’t like a smattering of serious on a bed of parody, clichéd characters, and over the top situations that know exactly what they are, then this book is definitely not for you.

'What do you get when you introduce Deadpool’s personality to Giselle’s? If you answered a love story for the ages, you wouldn’t be totally wrong… But, you wouldn’t be totally right, either.

'With a heroine who won’t let a stupid little thing like being too good get in the way of showing her stupid ex what’s what and a hero who wants no part of being the male lead in a romance novel, these two opposites find themselves in an unconventional partnership.

'When peppy-go-lucky Avery eventually wears down bad-to-the-bone Davin’s defences, he agrees to help her trash her reputation. And, if Davin can help her pass math while he’s at it, all the better. So, it’s goodbye to Little Miss Goody-Two-Shoes, and hello to a whole new Avery.

'Davin was only supposed to be Avery’s mistake – the guy that everyone would eventually call her ‘little phase’ – and he figured it would be good for a laugh when he looked back on it. But, the more they’re together, the less either of them feel it’s a mistake.

'Now, if only one of them could mention that to the other and ease all that angst-ridden tension…

'A laugh-out-loud modern-day fairy-tale in dual POV for those who know life never quite goes according to plan.' (Publication summary)
