Bloom by Elizabeth Scott

Lauren's boyfriend Dave is perfect. He's popular, friendly, good-looking and is in love with her. She doesn't understand why he thinks she's so special, because she feels less than desirable. But then Lauren meets Evan Kirkland, an old friend now back at school. She feels bad betraying her boyfriend, but she can't help falling for Evan. As she gets in deeper with Evan, she must make a choice: her "perfect" boyfriend Dave, or the love of her life Evan.

This book was so cute! It sounds kinda straightforward and unoriginal, but the book was really good. All the characters were interesting and had some kind of backstory to them. The only character that I didn't really like was Dave - even though he seemed like a great boyfriend. He was too perfect and when he talked he sounded robotic. So he was kinda boring. But Evan, I loved him. I thought it was kinda weird that Evan and Lauren lived together when they were kids because their parents were dating (it seemed awkward) but then it just gave their relationship some tension. Though, it was weird reading a book about a hot guy named Evan, because that's my younger brother's name and I couldn't help but think of him whenever I saw the name. That was the only thing I didn't like. Anyway, Elizabeth Scott is a fantastic writer and I can't wait to read her other books!

8 out of 10.

I just saw this book on Melissa Walker's blog.

I love books with a little romance I'll have to check my library for it.

Lol, I have a younger sister named Evan!

I have a older brother named Dave, well David, but close enough. It's so weird!
