Publisher Comments:

Just in time for summer comes the perfect beach read! Humor and romance abound in this fresh, fun take on summer love.

Lexie has always had a crush on Jake, her brother Colin's best friend. But she knows Jake thinks of her like a sister, and has never made a move. But when beautiful alpha girl Bree McKennis sets her sights on Jake, he has to come up with a plan to turn her down...without incurring the wrath of the most popular girl in school. That's when Colin comes up with the plan: Lexie can pretend to be Jake's girlfriend. But Lexie has never had a real boyfriend, let alone a pretend one! Can she manage to convince Jake that they're meant to be...and avoid getting killed by Bree McKennis?

Review:

"The i ? bikinis series gets off to a spunky start with this easy-reading tale centering on soon-to-be 16-year-old Lexie who-the opening line announces-'hated bikinis.' In fact, she has stashed the new bikini her mother gave her under her bed, refusing to wear it in summer camp. Also attending the camp is Jake, the 'outgoing, adorable, smart, and funny' best friend of Lexie's twin brother Colin. When Jake bemoans the fact that another camper, the 'blonde, beautiful, and blissfully mean' (and never-denied) Bree is determined to date him, Colin suggests that Jake and Lexie pretend that they are going out to discourage Bree's advances. Unfortunately, Lexie has long harbored a crush on Jake and, as their ruse continues, falls in love with him. ('Why does he have to be so cute? Why can't this be real? When is it going to end? And... what's going to happen to me when this is over?') But her anguish is for naught. No surprise, Jake feels the same about their not-so-faux romance and, after Lexie is forced to don her bikini when Bree steals her one-piece swimsuit, he finally gives Lexie a long-awaited first kiss. Plenty corny but plenty sweet, this may be a satisfying combination for bikini-clad teens looking for a breezy beach read. Ages 12-up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Awww.... that is all I have to say about this book! It was so cute! Lexie and Jake's "relationship" was so adorable! It reminded me why everyone loves having someone special. I would for def recommend this to anyone who wants a feel good read.
