Title: Love and Other Secrets

Star lacrosse player Alex “Kov” Koviak has it all. Or so everyone thinks. He’s real good at pretending his life is perfect...until he meets Bailey. The girl challenges him and pushes him and makes him laugh like he’s never laughed before. Their friendship is their little secret, and he’s happy to keep her to himself.

Between school, two jobs, and trying to get into NYU film school, Bailey Banfield has zero time for a social life. But then she meets Alex in her express lane at the grocery store, and their secret friendship becomes the only place she can breathe. She refuses to complicate that with more. No matter how charming Alex can be.

When Bailey decides to film outrageous promposals for her NYU application, she enlists Alex’s help to plan an over-the-top, epic promposal to someone else. Too bad the only prom date Alex wants anywhere near Bailey is him.

For a guy who seems to have it all, he’s about to lose the only thing he’s ever wanted.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Crush contains a cocky lacrosse player in over his head with his secret best friend, unexpected midnight kisses, swoon-worthy slow dancing, and movie-night cuddling that’ll make you ache. You’re going to want an Alex of your own!

OMG!!! I loved this book so much. I feel like I have been starved from this kind of genre for too long. I miss reading these type of books..ha! It reminds me of my own time at high school gosh I sound so old!

Set in a high school, everyone is just focused on one thing doing a proposal for prom. These proposals are a big deal since they can quickly go viral and die down just as quick. For Bailey, this is a perfect chance to win the short film contest and so begins the epic planning of the best proposal ever.

Where do I even begin with Alex and Bailey? Don't they just sound like the perfect duo? Alex is a very wealthy, lazy, confident but sweet athlete who dominates the Lacrosse field. He is known as the 'love guru' for matchmaking for his best friend Eli and Nora. We only get a short glimpse of Nora but she seems to be down to earth person. Alex is used to getting things on his plate, girls seem to ask him out every year, he is popular and yet we see a side of him where he can't say no to anything (I found this so adorable).

Bailey is a very determined and focused individual, she has her life planned for the next 15 years. She is an extremely busy person between working two jobs, school, homework and still manages to find time to meet Alex. Compared to her, I feel so lazy it makes me want to be more productive with my day.

Both Alex and Bailey are opposites in different ways, I like that they are relatable characters doesn't make it seem so they don't exist. I loved the banter and easy relationship both of these had with one another, I liked how humor played a part in the storyline makes it less intense. Overall I loved this book.
