Operation Prom Date by Cindi Madsen
Welcome to my stop on the Operation Prom Date Tour, brought to you by Entangled Teen, Chapter by Chapter Blog Tours, and Crush Books! I would first like to thank Chapter by Chapter Blog Tours for including me in the tour and providing me with a copy of the novel in exchange for a review! Crush Books always has such cute novels, and this was no exception! I absolutely loved this novel and everything about it - the characters were adorable and I loved the relationships that developed throughout the story. Kate, our protagonist, enlists the help of her friend Cooper in order to snag football star Mick Pecker as her prom date - what could go wrong? I fell in love with Kate and Cooper and their plan, but loved their friendship even more. They had such a pure relationship and worked so well together, and I was so happy with the ending of the novel. The novel read so well and smooth, and all of the TV and book references throughout the novel was so nice to see as a fellow fangirl. Our protagonist's initial crush, Mick, first appears to be the classic high school football player trope, but surprises us at the end of the novel and slowly throughout the story. I really enjoyed how Kate's past friendships with others were repaired, and the author did a fantastic job of piecing everything together. I have always been a fan of cute Rom-Com novels, and Crush Books seems to always deliver. I highly recommend this novel to fans of The Bad Boy Bargain and Life After Juliet.

Kate ships tons of fictional couples, but IRL her OTP is her and Mick, the hot quarterback she’s crushed on since, like, forever. With only one semester left of senior year, it’s now or never if she wants to land him in time for prom. Since she’s flirtationally challenged, she enlists Cooper Callihan, the guy who turned popular seemingly overnight but who used to be a good friend.
Cooper lives and breathes rowing, but his partner just broke his wrist. When he remembers Kate’s good with a set of oars, he strikes a deal: help him train, and he’ll make sure her crush notices her. Only he didn’t know how addicting spending time with her would be. Or how the more successful the Operation is, the more jealousy he experiences.
The mission has been set. The troops have their marching orders. But what if the target is the wrong guy all along?
