1) Take things slow (her rule)
2) Make it believable (his rule)
After tragedy hit her family, Meg Matthews officially crossed the line from “good girl” to “bad girl.” Motorcycle? Check. Graffiti? Check. The only thing Meg hadn’t planned on was blackmail. Too bad now a certain infuriating boy holds Meg’s future in his hands…
When Luke Prescott—star pitcher and town golden boy—catches Meg vandalizing the school, she’s given two choices: face the consequences or enter into a fake relationship with him to get his parents and his ex off his back.
But as Meg and Luke grow closer, they both realize they’ve been keeping secrets from each other. Their fake relationship might be doomed from the start—if they can’t learn to open up to the one person they never thought they’d trust.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains late-night graffiti sessions, flirty baseball lessons, and a never-ending list of relationship rules just made to be broken.

 can say, without any regrets, that I love well written YA book. Even at my age of 38. I love, love, love relishing in first encounters and new love. I cannot get enough of that warm fuzzy, euphoric feeling that YA/first love romances bring. THE RULES OF PERSUASION brought on that feeling and so much more.

And another thing I never tire of is the whole “fake relationship” plot. At least the ones I have read have been fun and unique in their own ways. And this author did a wonderful job making this story her own; giving it a different take all while adding a great entertaining value than the ones I have read before. I mean, who doesn’t enjoy being black mailed into a relationship? Am I right?

THE RULES OF PERSUASION had me guessing most of the time as to how it would end. There is just no way that Meg could get away scot free. Actions have consequences. And someone would have to pay the price. But it’s not that I wanted her in trouble. I loved this gal and hated to see her get in trouble and possibly have her future ruined.

I also enjoyed her relationship with Luke and just his character in whole. He may be a tad spoiled and used to getting his way, but Meg quickly puts him in his place. Well, as much as she can, since he seems to have the upper hand with the whole blackmail thingy. But they are just too cute for their own good. Will they recognize this cuteness before it is too late?

Fun, fresh and absolutely adorable…THE RULES OF PERSUASION is sure hit and a must read!! So far, I have loved everything I have read by this author and I look forward to many more by her. She has a knack for romance and knows how to spark that interest from the start. 5 Stars!
