Aimee’s life was stable, normal, and loving; until it wasn’t anymore. In the blink of an eye, she lost her childhood home, her best friend, and her sanity in one swoop.
But a misdialed number brings her an unexpected friend and a lot of new feelings.
Life is finally looking up and Aimee sets out to live life to the fullest with her newfound friend. That is until…Aimee’s text life and real life collide to ruin everything.
*I received this book free from Forever Write PR.*
Aimee reminds me of Alicia Silvertone in Clueless or someone along those same lines. She’s seventeen and going to parties and hanging with guys she doesn’t really like. She’s not really my cup of tea.
Muffin Guy (can’t ruin it by saying his name) is too sweet in the text world and even more so in real life and that’s the problem. When they discover their true identities he’ll do what’s right by everyone but him. The ultimate sacrifice of a gentleman…his own heart.
“Every time I see you, not kissing you gets more and more difficult. I know if I start, I’ll never want to stop and obviously, my self-control is lacking.”
Recipe for Disaster is a cute-ish story, but it is definitely for the younger crowd. I’m entirely too old to have anything in common with the main character and it made it difficult to stay emotionally involved with the book enough to finish it. If you are in the 16-25 age range then I’d say definitely read it, but if you’re not then don’t say I didn’t tell you so.
