A fun and upbeat paperback original romance about a girl who finds a cheat sheet for love.

Spring break . . . heartache?

For coder extraordinaire Ashley, high school is all about prepping for college. Her love life? Virtually nonexistent. She's never been on a date. Never been kissed. Never been in love.

When her plans veer off course, Ashley realizes she might be missing out on her high school experience. Now that spring break is finally here, Ashley vows to have fun . . . and, for the first time, follow her heart.

Starting with Walker Beech, her gorgeous, maybe-not-so-unrequited crush. But with Jason Eisler--her childhood friend turned prankster--in the picture, trouble is bound to follow. Will Ashley's epic spring break lead her to love, or will her heart crash and burn?

"Crush is a powerful thing."

A sweet, raw, cute story about a teenage girl named Ashley who is so good with coding. All her high school year is focused on preparing for her college entrance but none on her love life. She never dated anyone but she does have a crush on someone in her high school.

"Rejections happen. You can't let them stop you from achieving your dreams."

Ashley's character is truly felt so raw and flawed that remind me of myself when I was in high school except I'm not good at coding. When her summer internship got rejected by the famous company she really wants to work at then, she decided not to hang on to that rejection rather she should be having fun, continue working at the retail store with Jason (her best friend), went out with her crush which turns out weird where she finds her crush is not how she imagined being. 

Honestly, it is a very simple, straightforward, adorable, and interesting story that I enjoy reading. I love Ashley's character. Her determination on her future plans, study, and during the coding competition. While Jason's character, he is a prankster and yet a very good friend who has a crush on Ashley for quite a long time, or maybe he just realizes he has a feeling for Ashley when Ashley went out with her crush I guess (I think). I wish the author explore more on Jason's character also with the coding stuff. They both are so cute and didn't realize they have feelings for each other. Did I mention Ashley love listening to Taylor Swift's song? Yes, she is! 

Overall, a fun, fast-paced, light reading which quite enjoyable. If you are looking for a quick romance reading, you probably want to consider reading this one! The writing flow is easy to follow.
