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 fun YA contemporary romance. The book follows Maya (Mai) and Anthony, who seem to come from different worlds. They have recently graduated from high school, and Maya has big plans for her future- plans she is afraid to deviate from. She was adopted as an infant, and carries a lot of feelings around that adoption. She is desperate to fit in with her family, and so, she lets her parents have strong sway over her actions- so that she can be the perfect Senn.

Anthony is an athlete whose life was thrown for a loop when his father died. Now, he can't imagine making any plans and has a hard time connecting with other people. He lives each day as it comes, and is planning a semi-unplanned trip to take his father's urn for the traveling his father spoke about when he was alive. He has not thought about college or what he wants out of his future long-term.

Mai and Anthony seem like oil and water, but they feel an intense pull towards the other. When Anthony proposes a two-week fling to get each other out of their heads, Mai agrees- and they begin to plan dates the other will hate. However, that seems to be tough to accomplish, when they both enjoy being with the other so much.

This book was delicious tension and so much chemistry, it heated up every scene the two were in together. Each has a big hurdle around parents and growing up that they must overcome to be able to be with each other. There are a lot of great points about love, family, and balance that shine through their stories. Overall, this was a highly enjoyable romance read with a couple that was exceptionally easy to cheer for. This series is really fantastic, and this book (stand-alone) is heartwarming and steamy tension (kisses only, second base mentioned/not described) and loads of fun.
