The Girl Next Door
CHALLENGE ACCEPTED alternates POV between the nerdy Emma and the popular Logan. After messing up Emma's chances at a summer romance, Logan is forced by his stepmother to make it up to her. That's how Logan comes up with the brilliant plan to hook Emma up with his best friend Matt since she's madly in love with him.
Before Logan, Emma never dreamed of having the opportunity to talk to Matt. She's very shy and quiet, but Logan forces her out of her comfort zone. He takes her to parties and tries to morph her into the girl Matt would love to date. The only problem is that both Logan and Emma become confused about how they feel for each other.
CHALLENGE ACCEPTED is a contemporary romance about the girl next door. To me, it was a little cliche and I wish there was a little more depth with the characters, but overall it was a decent read. I did like the alternating POV and adored the perfect way it ended.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this story to fans of contemporary romance and stories about the nerdy girl next door. This was an easy read that would be perfect for the summer.
