Blurb (from Goodreads):
Kate ships tons of fictional couples, but IRL her OTP is her and Mick, the hot quarterback she’s crushed on since, like, forever. With only one semester left of senior year, it’s now or never if she wants to land him in time for prom. Since she’s flirtationally challenged, she enlists Cooper Callihan, the guy who turned popular seemingly overnight but who used to be a good friend.
Cooper lives and breathes rowing, but his partner just broke his wrist. When he remembers Kate’s good with a set of oars, he strikes a deal: help him train, and he’ll make sure her crush notices her. Only he didn’t know how addicting spending time with her would be. Or how the more successful the Operation is, the more jealousy he experiences.
The mission has been set. The troops have their marching orders. But what if the target is the wrong guy all along?

My rating: 3.25 of 5 stars
This was a YA contemporary romance story, featuring a plan to go with a quarterback to prom.
I liked Kate and Cooper in this, and it was sweet how they both slowly fell in love with each other without even realising it.
The storyline in this was about Cooper helping Kate to snag the quarterback who she had a crush on, but instead falling in love with her himself. It was all quite predictable, but it was still an enjoyable story, although the pace was a bit slow. We also got alternating points of view, and a very steamy first kiss!
The ending to this was a happily ever after.
