It's all fun and parties until someone falls in love in this modern fairy tale from author Kate Evangelista.
Caleb desperately needs a fake girlfriend. Either he attends a series of parties for his father’s law firm with a pretty girl on his arm, or he gets shipped off to Yale to start a future he’s not ready for and isn’t sure he wants. And sadly, the last unattached girl in his social circle has just made the grievous mistake of falling in love with him.
Fortunately, Didi, recently fired waitress and aspiring painter, is open to new experiences. As the summer ticks by in a whirl of lavish parties, there’s only one rule: They must not fall in love!
No Love Allowed is the first in a young adult contemporary romance series by Kate Evangelista. I have read a few of Kate’s books in the past, and I now know that when I pick up one of her books, it will be a fun and light-hearted romance. No Love Allowed was no different. I liked this story. It was not my favorite of Kate’s books by any means, and I did have a few annoyances with it, but it was a fun and quick romance.
I bet you can tell where this story is going to go. As the title implies, the two main characters Caleb and Didi embark on a summer fake -nomance, with Caleb’s big number one rule flashing over everything- You are not allowed to fall in love with him. I liked Caleb, but I loved Didi. While she is a bit of a scatterbrain and she might get on my nerves if I had to keep up with her in real life, in the pages of this book she was the perfect amount of spitfire and spunk for Caleb. I loved that she didn’t take any crap from anyone. As soon as he told her that she couldn’t fall in love with him, she shot right back that maybe he would be the one falling for her. She just made me smirk.
No Love Allowed is great for young adult readers who are looking for a quick romance read that is full of sass and lots of fun. The book is pretty predictable, and the characters are immature at times. Readers that get easily annoyed by those things might want to steer clear (but if so, do try another one of Kate’s books because I have really enjoyed them. (I would recommend Romancing the Bookworm or Reaping me Softly) But there is no denying that No Love Allowed is a fun read. Give it a shot if you are looking for a quick and fluffy fun story.
