Perfect for fans of Lauren Myracle and Rainbow Rowell, The Romantics will charm readers of all ages. Gael Brennan is about to have his heart broken when his first big relationship crumbles on the heels of his parents’ painful separation. Love intervenes with the intention of setting things right—but she doesn’t anticipate the intrusion of her dreaded nemesis: the Rebound. Love’s plans for Gael are sidetracked by Cara, Gael’s hot-sauce-wielding “dream girl.” The more Love meddles, the further Gael drifts from the one girl who can help him mend his heart. Soon Love starts breaking all her own rules—and in order to set Gael’s fate back on course, she has to make some tough decisions about what it means to truly care.
Why I'm Waiting...
I normally start out with how much I love the cover, but I have to admit, it just doesn't do it for me. When it comes to YA Romance, I like seeing covers that have the boy and girl interacting with each other. It feels more romantic and not so childlike. What did draw me to the book was the blurb stating it would be perfect for fans of Rainbow Rowell, who I love. I'm interested to see how this one plays out because I can't tell if the character Love is a person whose name is Love or it's a metaphorical character...is it like an imaginary character like Cupid? I have no idea!! I guess I will just have to check it out!!
