Taylor Simmons is screwed.

Things were hard enough when her single-minded dedication to her studies earned her the reputation of being an Ice Queen, but after getting drunk at a party and waking up next to bad boy surfer Evan McKinley, the entire school seems intent on tearing Taylor down with mockery and gossip.

Desperate to salvage her reputation, Taylor persuades Evan to pretend they’re in a serious romantic relationship. After all, it’s better to be the girl who tames the wild surfer than just another notch on his surfboard.


Five words to describe this book: Fun. Heart-stopping. Funny. Happy. Lovely. 

The Way to Game the Walk of Shame has to be one of the most fun and cute books that I've read so far. It was just so funny, it made me smile, laugh, and crinkle my eyes. 

I fell in love with both Taylor and Evan. Both of them are such great characters with a lovely sense of humor and a chemistry that left me oh so happy and full of giddiness. Their relationship was just a work of art. It's not perfect, but it has all the perfect aspects in it. While I don't usually pick up books with a "contracted relationship" I found myself really enjoying this particular one. 

I found myself connecting well with who Taylor is and finding out that I related a lot with who she is, what she does, and how well she plans her future. I loved her small quirks, her stubbornness, and her bossiness, and everything about her. 

Evan is by all mean the complete opposite of Taylor. Evan is a handsome, girl-loving, funny, carefree guy who changes in the best way because of Taylor and her quest to save her "reputation". 

I loved the journey throughout the book. I loved the transition between both of these characters and how well everything blends together. From the first page where they meet to the start of their contract, to the end. 

Of course, with all romance novels, there will always be that splash of drama. Sometimes that drama is annoying, but in this case, there was the perfect balance of drama to romance. This story was mostly rom-com. There was a small itty bitty case of a love triangle. Though, it wasn't a huge deal. 

This book was truly wonderful and it was a very fun read! I recommend this to all romance lovers, because this book is something that belongs on your to-be-read list! 

Jenn Nguyen fell in love with books in third grade and spent the rest of her school years reading through lunchtime and giving up recess to organize the school library. She has a degree in business administration from the University of New Orleans and still lives in the city with her husband. Jenn spends her days reading, dreaming up YA romances, and binge watching Korean dramas all in the name of 'research'. The Way to Game the Walk of Shame is her debut novel.
