Featured Review: Perfectly You (Robin Daniels)
About This Book:
Ivy Nixon is the student body Vice President at Franklin High School. Each year, the school holds a date auction to raise funds for the senior class graduation party, and this year, Ivy’s in charge. Planning the event is a huge task and Ivy is determined to prove she can get the job done right. Unfortunately, she’s still one participant short and her deadline is looming.
Andy Walker, her cute but socially reclusive art class table mate, is her last resort. He may not be popular, but he’s funny, talented, and full of surprises. With a makeover and some major social marketing, Ivy is sure he could fetch a decent price at the auction.
Andy reluctantly agrees to help, but the more time Ivy spends with him, the more her feelings shift from professional to romantic in nature. To top it off, she’s done her marketing so well, that other girls are starting to notice Andy too. Come auction time, will Ivy be able to let him go to the highest bidder? Or will she find a way to keep him for herself…
Content Description: This is a stand-alone YA contemporary romance with companion novels set at the same high school. It contains minor language, innuendo, and crude humor, some steamy kissing, a party scene where underage drinking is taking place, and a brief but tasteful conversation about sex. The author has attempted to write characters who make good choices in questionable situations, in effort to keep the content appropriate for teens. This book contains no sex, written or implied, and no explicit language. Recommended for ages 14 and up.

What I loved:
Ivy's character is strong, driven, and even a bit inconsiderate at times. Giving her character flaws from the outset makes her immediately more relatable and believable, engaging the reader from the first chapter.
The premise is adorable, and the romance develops at a believable pace. Additionally, the side characters, her best friend, in particular, really make this story shine.
What I could have used more of:
The plot itself could have been a little more fleshed out, and Andy's character wasn't quite as relatable as Ivy's.
Overall, this book is perfect for anyone in search of a sweet, clean high school romance.
