Mai Senn knows Anthony Adams is no good for her - no matter how hard she might crush on him. She’s valedictorian; he’s a surf bum. She’s got plans, he’s got his art. Complete opposites in every way. Vinegar and baking soda, they once joked. A chemical reaction that bubbled.
Yeah, they bubbled. Maybe still do.
Good thing Anthony’s got the perfect plan: two weeks to prove just how not good they are together. Whoever can come up with the worst date—something the other will seriously hate, proving how incompatible they truly are—wins.
Like taking a snake-phobe to the Reptile House at the zoo (his idea).
Or a cooking class where they don’t even get to eat the food (her idea).
It’s all about the competition, and it’s meant to help them finally crush their crushes. But it wasn’t supposed to be so hot. Or so fun. And when Mai’s future becomes at stake, will she be able to do the right thing and quit Anthony forever?
How to Quit Your Crush is a standalone young adult contemporary romance by Amy Fellner Dominy. It is set in the same world as her YA contemporary romance, Announcing Trouble. I really enjoyed Announcing Trouble and was super excited to dive back into this world to get Mai and Anthony’s story. But don’t worry- if you are new to this world, you don’t need to read Announcing Trouble first to be able to enjoy How to Quit Your Crush. And I think I enjoyed this one a little more than Announcing Trouble (though it was close!)
Mai and Anthony were characters I wanted to know more about after I finished Announcing Trouble and I was super excited when I heard they would be getting their own story. This was a classic case of opposites attracting. However; with Mai and Anthony they both admit to their crush, but they want to get over the other one. Insert one genius (??) plan to try and out “bad-date” each other. What follows is a super cute, completely hilarious romp over a series of bad and even worse bad dates. I absolutely loved the two of them together. They are so opposite in many ways, but they still have plenty of levels and topics to connect on.
How to quit your Crush is pure fun, perfect for spring and summertime! I loved the banter that Mai and Anthony share, but there are plenty of genuine warm and fuzzy heartfelt moments that made me really connect with each of them. Watching them try to decide they were truly over the other made me smile and shake my head several times, and seeing some of the things they would do just to be near each other had me rooting for these two hard core. If you are looking for a cute, funny romance How to Quit Your Crush is a winner! I loved this book!
