Blog Tour & Review: How to Quit Your Crush by Amy Fellner Dominy

Title: How to Quit Your Crush
Author: Amy Fellner Dominy
Publication Date: May 4, 2020
Publisher: Entangled Teen Crush

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?

Disclaimer: I received an Advance Reader Copy at no cost from the publisher/author. All opinions in my review are my own. This was such an adorable story that intrigued me from the very start. The amusing synopsis is what hooked me but I stayed for the wonderful characters and excellent storytelling. I was really a fan of the author's writing style. It was easy to follow and felt very natural. The plot of the story was intriguing from the start and worked itself out quite well. I enjoyed these characters so much. Mai is a character that travels the straight and narrow, always has a plan, and meets the perfect expectations set by her parents. Anthony is a character that is still reeling from the loss of his father three years ago, struggling to let anyone in. Both of them really had such different and distinct personalities. I loved how much depth the characters had as well as their incredible character growth. I liked that while this was a romance book, the main characters still had things that they had to overcome as individuals in the story. Mai and Anthony couldn't be more different but they chemistry that they have together just worked. I loved how they both really brought out the best parts of the other without even trying. Their relationship had a lot of ups and downs but the fact that they both cared about the other was ever-present in the story. Mai and Anthony had this pull towards each other that they couldn't get away from. They had the cutest banter and such a strong connection. The fast-paced flow worked well for this story but I wish that the book had been a little bit longer. I felt that the ending was a little rushed. I honestly didn't feel like I got enough closure. Overall, this is an entertaining opposites-attract story that was packed with plenty of emotion. This was a sweet YA romance with humor, insightful moments, and a romance that will put a smile on your face. I'm excited to read more from this author.
