About this ebook

This spinoff of The Replacement Crush featuring Amy and Toff is sure to melt your heart.

Shy bookworm Amy McIntyre is about to compete for the chance to interview her favorite author, who hasn't spoken to the press in years. The only way to win is to step out of the shadows and into the spotlight, but that level of confidence has never come easy.

The solution? A competition coach. The problem? The best person for the job is the guy she's secretly crushing on...local surfer celebrity Toff Nichols.

He’s a player. He’s a heartthrob. He makes her forget basic things, like how to breathe. How can she feel any confidence around him?

To her surprise, Toff agrees to help. And he’s an excellent teacher. Amy feels braver—maybe even brave enough to admit her feelings for him. When their late night practices become less about coaching and more about making out, Amy’s newfound confidence wavers.

But does Toff really like her or is this just another lesson?

The Bookworm Crush is such a cute book. As a bookworm and bookstagrammer myself, I loved the whole premise of this story. Fun bookish and pop culture references, talk about book reviews and arcs, book bloggers and vloggers- if it made my heart happy at this age, I can’t imagine how much I’d love this as a teen-age bibliophile! For the most part, this was a light-hearted, fun read that any bookworm will enjoy. But there were also some heavier, more emotional parts dealing with, and coming to terms with, grief. I thought I was safe reading the last 15% at work, but man did Toff pull at the heartstrings! I loved that we got both Amy and Toff’s points of view in this book. It made some of the things Toff did a little easier to accept, being in his head and knowing his reasons, instead of just seeing them from Amy’s pov. I liked seeing how Amy really blossomed in this book. It was partly thanks to Toff’s coaching, but mostly just on her own, as she grew more confident and more sure of herself. I enjoyed the back and forth between her and Toff, and how he helped her see what was inside her all along. And I loved how Amy made Toff see that romance and relationships weren’t a bad thing! I think all bookworms will enjoy this one, no matter your age!

the ending drags on, needs to create more sexual tension if the sex scenes are clean for YA, the plot line of a surfer being a winner being her one and only savior is weak considering he uses a whole other set of skills to help her. wasn't feeling it. didn't finish it

I missed the Replacement Crush so I didn't know the backstory of Amy and Toff but I need that book in my life ASAP!! I LOVED everything about this book. Usually YA tends to be lighthearted and low in angst but high in drama. There were so many times reading this that I forgot that these were high school students. There is so much emotion that I read this book in one sitting. The strength shown by these characters sucked me in and wouldn't let go. I can't wait to go back and read The Replacement Crush!!
