What would you do for a second chance with your first crush?

 Brynn McAdams isn’t the awkward drama geek she was in high school—she’s grown up and confident, or at least she likes to think so. But when her old crush, the impossibly handsome and impossibly unattainable Sawyer Raines, comes back to town to direct her community play, Brynn finds herself determined to be someone other than the girl he doesn’t even recognize. Good thing she’s an excellent actress.

After his bad breakup in NYC, the last thing Sawyer wants is to get involved with another actress. But the glamorous and beautiful Brynn draws him in, even though as her director, he knows she’s off-limits. There’s just something about the woman that feels…familiar. Like home.

As Brynn’s lies start to snowball, she struggles to stop acting and come clean. But what if Sawyer is already falling for the fake Brynn, not the Brynn she truly is? 

I love romantic comedies and chick-lit and I felt that this books was within this genre, I really like it a lot and I had fun reading the mess in which Brynn got herself in, because what starts at the beginning as a misunderstanding between Brynn and Sawyer then she takes the opportunity to create another identity and act like a different person as she is regularly with the help of the good or bad advice of her brother.

Brynn is an attractive woman, she is a theatre actress and she loves romance (movies, books, plays, etc.), but usually she doesn´t have good luck with men because she starts quoting lines from plays in a regular talk. And she was not always attractive because in high school she took really bad decisions regarding her appearance, so in her high school years she was a insecure girl who loved the theater. She used to have a crush with one of the most popular boys at school, but he never notice her so when six years later Sawyer returns to the city, to remodel a house that he wants to sell; and he also ends up been the director of the play where the main actresses is Brynn.

Sawyers is attracted to Brynn, but after the romantic disaster he had in New York, he has vowed never to date another actress, and apparently that is not going to difficult to accomplish because Brynn, the actress to whom he is attracted, seems to hate him for no apparent reason.

The story is told from Brynn´s and Sawyer´s POV, and I love dual POVs because they allowed me to get to know and like both characters.

Overall, this is a fun romance novel, very entertaining, very cute romance and with a happy ending. It is highly recommended book for fans of romance/chick-lit novels.

Thanks to Entangled: Bliss for providing the ebook in exchange for an honest review.
