Today I am on the blog tour for this fun young adult book, that I would have absolutely fallen in love with when I was a teenager! I started reading young adult again when my older kids were teenagers, I wanted to see what they were reading, and I really truly enjoyed teenagers and enjoyed being a teenager myself…. I do read young adult books through the eyes of a mother, so sometimes I see some silly flaws that I would not have seen when I was younger… this book is a perfect example I truly found it a fun quick read, however I think it is truly meant for the young adult audience…💜
Love Beyond Opposites (Grad Night #3)
by Molly E. Lee
Publication Date: May 7, 2018

If high school has taught mathlete Jade Aaron anything, it’s that nerds never get the guy.
So when rock star Lennon Pryor starts pursuing her, It’s not rocket science. This doesn’t add up.
I mean, sure, he’s hot.
And a god on the guitar…
But he’s also the world’s biggest player. Being with him would be a bigger mistake than 2+2=5.
Until graduation night, when a reckless moment leads to a reckless kiss. And now Jade’s falling for the one guy destined to break her heart.

3.5 Cute Stars 🌟🌟🌟.5
If I were a teenage girl this would be my ultimate fantasy grad night…. apparently this is the third book in the series, although it can be read as a standalone…. The books all take place during the same timeframe, but from the perspective of three different couples… this is Jade and Lenin’s story…
Jade is the nerd and Lenin is the rockstar…. so how could he ever fall for a girl like her? I did like both of these characters… and of course they had more in common than it appeared on the surface… they also had both been harboring a crush for one another for the past four years….
Now there were quite a few things about this book that were unrealistic… like you probably should not have a career changing performance at a grad night house party… also nobody is getting into UCLA at the last minute, and they are not on the semester system (I know this is a picky detail)…. all this is to say is that this was a fun Quick read but not terribly realistic…. it was also filled with clichés and stereotypes, yet still enjoyable…
This is a young adult book I believe that is truly meant for a young adult audience… if you are a parent I think the only thing that would stop you from letting a younger reader read this is there is teenage drinking, other than that it was pretty clean…
