A story about a school trip to London, and boys, and where rules are broken? Count me in!
First, I need to gush over the cover. If it was a poster, I’d hang it on my wall, I love it that much. As soon as I saw the cover, I knew I had to read Meant to Be. Yes, I completely judged this book by its cover, but reading the synopsis only confirmed its must-read status. And yes, the story (Beatle references included), lives up to the cover!
This book made me laugh out loud, roll my eyes, and my heart flutter. Julia and Jason have great chemistry, and I became impatient to find out what would happen with them. Jason is the class clown, constantly getting into trouble and always causing a scene. Julia is a rule follower, a planner, and earned the nickname (from Jason) of Book Licker for a reason.
But the more time Julia spends with Jason, the more she realizes that she doesn’t know him at all. He constantly challenges her, surprises her, and she’s confused by his mixed signals. All the things I love in a romantic read!
Meant to Be is a fun debut, and contemporary romance fans will eat it up! I can’t wait to read more from Lauren Morrill.
