My Review

I really enjoyed this new adult romance!
Lyla is a nerd girl, for her chemistry and her cat Einstein have always been more important than clothes, makeup, parties and hot guys. But one evening, coming out with her friend and roomate Whitney, she realizes you look different to the eyes of others: she is taken around by a guy who calls her boring. Lyla wants to change, wants to live fully the life of a college girl and also wants to be noticed. Not to lose sight of her goal she makes a bucket list of seven things to do. To help there is her closest friend, Beck. He's a very nice guy, that changes girlfriend every night and is a good hockey player, but  serious family problems prevented him from realizing his dream of becoming a professional player. They met at  a  laboratory work and, although they are completely different, they have become inseparable: every Sunday they meet together to see a movie on the couch of Beck.
As the points on the list are removed and real Lyla emerges, between them is born something deeper but are afraid to face it: their friendship is too precious to risk losing it.
Lyla is a sweet girl, clumsy, very intelligent. She wants to change not to please others but to feel good about herself, not to have any regrets when she's out of college. Beck is a great friend, is protective, it's a boy on whom Lyla and his little sister can always count on. And he is a guy that is really easy to lose your head.
The story is very well written, I especially enjoyed the alternation of the point of view of Lyla and Beck: each chapter is written in the first person by one of the two. Every situation has made it possible to live with both the eyes and the heart of Lyla and be with those of Beck. It has been possible identify better with the emotions of the two protagonists.
It's a sweet romance, romantic but also fun, especially text messages exchanged between Beck and Lyla and their performance at karaoke.
For those who love the genre NA and romantic stories is definitely to read

I have received this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
