Adorkable (ah-dor-kuh-bul): Descriptive term meaning to be equal parts dorky and adorable. For reference, see Sally Spitz.
Seventeen-year-old Sally Spitz is done with dating. Or at least, she's done with the horrible blind dates/hookups/sneak attacks her matchmaking bestie, Hooker, sets her up on. There's only so much one geek girl and Gryffindor supporter can take.
Her solution: she needs a fake boyfriend. And fast.
Enter Becks, soccer phenom, all-around-hottie, and Sally's best friend practically since birth. When Sally asks Becks to be her F.B.F. (fake boyfriend), Becks is only too happy to be used. He'd do anything for Sal--even if that means giving her PDA lessons in his bedroom, saying she's "more than pretty," and expertly kissing her at parties.
The problem: Sally's been in love with Becks all her life--and he's completely clueless.
This book features two best friends, one special edition Yoda snuggie, countless beneath-the-ear kisses and begs the question:
Who wants a real boyfriend when faking it is so much more fun?
Adorkable is an adorably cute young adult contemporary romance by Cookie O’Gorman. I really, really enjoyed this book. It had my inner dork smiling and cheering for Sal the entire time. Sure, the main characters were a little clueless, but they were completely, well…adorkable!Fans of light and fluffy contemporaries will eat this one up and be asking for seconds.
Adorkable is told entirely from Sally’s point of view. While, I loved Sally, I was hoping for a little glimpse into Becks mind. Poor Sally has had to deal with people trying to set her up all the time. I still have no idea why Sal’s best friend was so hell bent on setting her up with every guy under the sun. She wasn’t even subtle or nice about it. She was even telling the guys that Sal was desperate. (which I thought was pretty rude, considering Sal explicitly told her that she wanted her to cut the matchmaking out.) To get her off her back. Sal hears a rumor about her and Becks and decides to run with it. Insert fake boyfriend here.
Becks is completely adorable. I loved his friendship with Sal. I loved that they are no where near the same person, but yet they work so well together. They know each other so well, and they accept every part of each other. It was beyond cute. They are the kind of couple (fake or not) that you hope lasts forever. Not to mention, Cookie O’Gorman does an excellent job with the writing of this story. I felt like I was watching the romance of two of my old friends.
Bottom line: Adorkable is just like the name suggests. This is a cute story that will appeal to fans of light, fluffy and fun young adult contemporary romances. It plays on the fake boyfriend trope as well as the friends to more trope, and it does it all with a dorktastic twist that you are bound to love.
