I think I’ve mentioned before that I LOVE to read and can read a book a day. Well, I just finished reading “Rules of Persuasion” by Amity Hope, and let me tell you it was exactly what I needed from a YA book.
Meg is the female protagonist who has to cope with the loss of her sister and well her family’s handling of that. She has an outlet that isn’t very legal but helps her meet Luke. Luke is the pitcher of his high school’s baseball team, and well hangs around with the popular crew.
Meg and Luke could not be more different on the outside, while he is externally what you expect a popular guy to be like, she is a little darker. She rides a motorcycle, wears leather jeans, and generally doesn’t care about what others think of her. But when Luke catches her redhanded and makes her an offer she “cannot refuse,” she must accept and pretend to be his girlfriend.
Their sizzling connection can be felt throughout the book. Can’t help but fall in love with closet-nerd, Luke, and badass but actually a sweetheart Meg. As always, there are rules to the arrangement, but will they follow them?
