The Art of Lainey - Paula StokesThe Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes

Paperback: 384 pages
Publication date: Harper Teen
Publisher: May 20th 2014
Add on: Goodreads

Soccer star Lainey Mitchell is used to getting what she wants, and when her boyfriend Jason breaks up with her for no reason, what she wants is to win him back before the start of their senior year. Lainey and her friend Bianca check the interwebz for tips and tricks, but the online dating advice is all pretty lame.

Then the girls stumble across a copy of The Art of War. Didn’t someone once say that love is a battlefield? Jason isn’t going to stand a chance once Lainey and Bee go all Zhou Dynasty on him…

Old school strategy and subterfuge meet modern-day dramarama in the story of a girl who sets out to win at all costs and ends up discovering what’s really worth fighting for.

I’m always on the hunt for a fun YA contemporary! And this definitely has that super cute romantic-y YA feel. Also, did you know Paula Stokes is Fiona Paul!? Yeah, I’m probably  late to the party since I only figured that out not too long ago but I’m excited! I really enjoyed her Venom (even though I’m a little behind on the series,eep!). Anyway, Edelweiss has this on request/download, so I snagged it!

  2. You’re not that late, I didn’t know that either… haha, I haven’t even read Venom yet, but this sounds cutesy, so it should be a fun read, I’m 50/50 whether to download it right now though. I’ll probably cave soon.

  11. This one does look super cute and like a great spring/summer read. I loved Venom too! This one sounds like a good romance like maybe she will realize he wasn’t worth fighting for and find someone better?! Will have to read it and see. Thanks for stopping by!

  12. I’ve been debating whether or not to download from Edelweiss and I think I will because it just sounds like my kind of read.

  15. I am always late to the game with author pen names.

  16. Download download download!! 😀 I guarantee at least one giggle and five smiles for everyone who reads all the way through. It’s very different from VENOM though–much fluffier and faster-paced.

    And then please please write a review. Your honest reviews are my life force, and I need some extra guys to make it through the next level (AKA my revisions for LIARS, INC, which is another totally different kind of book).

    Thanks for choosing LAINEY for your WoW.

    PS Download! 😀
