Quirky, romantic, and so much fun! I TOTALLY ship these two! ~ Rachel Harris, author of My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century
"Operation Prom Date is a sweet, swoony, hilarious romance that I couldn't put down! I totally shipped this couple with each turn of the page! Another big win for Cindi Madsen!" -Molly E. Lee, Author of the Love on the Edge series
5 stars: "This will most likely be one of my favorite books in 2017, which isn't really strange because Cindi's Taking shots series was my favorite of 2016. I can't wait for next book in Tactics in flirting series, not just because it was so much fun and falling for characters and their story was as easy as breathing, but also because I'm really interested which other couples are we going to see." -Anna B. Doe, Bookmantic
5 stars: "Kate Hamilton is my kind of girl. She gets 'ships and OTPs and lives for the love story. Or the relationship story. So it's amusing to watch her navigate relationship drama without realizing what she's doing." -Eva Scalzo, Definitely, Possibly, Maybe
5 stars: "Operation Prom Date is an adorable read that will make you want to fall in love all over again. A sweet escape with a couple that is meant to be together. The blurb isn't lying, you will want to ship this couple." -Angela Copa, The Reading Cave
4.5 stars: "I absolutely loved this book. It was so cute and fluffy and I loved both Kate and Cooper. [...] To be honest, I started shipping them at their first conversation. (Mick who?)" -Sara Newhouse, The Bibliophagist
5 stars: "Fans of Jenny Han and Kody Keplinger will fall in love with Operation Prom Date by Cindi Madsen. A fun romance with a twist. What happens when the "fake" relationship suddenly becomes real?" -Kristen Cambensy, Victim of Books
4.5 stars: "This book was quirky, cute and fun. It's like my favorite '90s teen movies came to life through the pages of a book." -Taylor Bellito, Goodreads Reviewer
5 stars: "If you're a fan of fangirl moments, prom, and a couple that you'll go with shipping them, you're in for a sweet ride." -Keanna Lewis, Key Read That
4.5 stars: "I really enjoyed this book. REALLY, REALLY enjoyed this book. It was the perfect combination of flirting, romance, humor and happiness. Mix in some awesome pop culture references we have a winner." -Nicole Kaderabek, Snoopy Doo's Book Review
5 stars: "Cindi Madsen has yet again left me with a smile on my face after reading this book!! What a sweet and charming story!!" -Gabriella Navarro, Read A Book
4 stars: "Supporting characters in this story that add more humor and fun are Kate's mother. Think of Rory and Lorelai Gilmore kind of relationship." -Traci, Book Plus Heart
5 stars: "This book <3, it's sooo light and fluffy, so I absolutely loved it.

I am shipping Kaper so freaking hard, I can't even tell you. Like seriously, this book was just everything my little YA-loving heart was looking for. It was fairly light, with just enough depth to give it interest. And while I don't think you have to be a fandom lover to enjoy this book, if you are, I think you will definitely fall in love with Kate. I'm not even a major fandom lover, but I totally get shipping couples, and wanting them to be together, and being angry at the writers for drawing it out. And in some ways Ms. Madsen kind of fulfilled that longing and irritation and GAHness with Kate and Cooper. You could just tell that they were perfect for each other, but of course she had to put them through the wringer on the way to HEA. I'm not always a fan of misunderstandings and all that jazz, but it really fit in this storyline and worked for the story that was being told (if that makes any sense at all)...or at least it did for me.
And you know how my favourite part of any story is the characters? Well Kate and Cooper were amazeballs. Not without flaws for sure, and not without feeling like authentic teenagers, but I just really loved them both. My heart broke for Kate and how she came to be the person she was. Not just with her father, but also the circumstances with her friends. I've been that girl with no friends b/c I wasn't willing to change myself to fit in. It's all well and good to be solid with who you are and to put that above other things, but it can be very lonely. And she was just so freaking quirky and adorable!! She made me laugh so much. Seriously though, she really reminded me a lot of myself (right down to the lost father). And I enjoyed that what really drew her to Mick was her perception that he was more sweet than he seemed, based on his moments of kindness. It was a bit of a bummer that she didn't catch on as quickly to how changing herself wasn't the way to go, and that maybe he wasn't worth it, but sometimes we see what we want to see and we want things so badly that we don't make the connections until later.
And then there was Cooper. OMG, book boyfriend city man. He was just so sweet and thoughtful, and dealing with his own set of struggles, and just trying to survive in a way. I loved being in his head and reading about his thoughts. He was an interesting guy b/c he had this popularity in some ways, but didn't seem to realize it. And I adored his little bit of nerdiness, talk about swoon!! My only real complaint with his story was the resolution with his father. It didn't feel authentic, b/c his father really felt borderline mentally abusive to me...or just too toxic anyways.
Honestly though, the star of this book was Kate and Cooper together. Seeing them experience the tummy tingles for each other, and those breathless moments, and the friendship that developed...GAH! It was just perfect. My romance loving heart was so freaking satisfied, I had tingles just reading about them. And the climax was perfection. It just read exactly as I wanted it to. And then we even got some delicious epilogueness!! I love epilogueness. It was so satisfying.
So basically this story was just tailor made for me. Love. Adore. So much shipping.
What I Loved: So there wasn't much 'new' happening in this book that hasn't happened before, guy helps girl land the guy of her dreams while girl is not realizing she's actually falling for guy. What makes this one a bit different is that the guy (Cooper) doesn't already have a crush on Kate before they get started. So watching them both get sucker punched with the reality was fun.
Cindi has written some major chemistry between Kate and Cooper, even from the beginning Cooper is pretty much swoon worthy, and you're ready to leave whats-his-face in the dust. As it should be. But the first kiss...watch out for that one, its a dousy! :) Cooper was so focused and determined, but I loved it when his jealous streak came out. Kate was an intro-extrovert I guess. She was kind of a loner, but at the same time had this great personality. She is a fangirl, like most of us booknerds are, so there's that too.
Not So Much: I mentioned it above, but this book really isn't new. I kind of wish there were more un-redeemable qualities about Mick, besides his unfortunate name and just being a typical teenage jock. But really that's all I can come up with.
The Verdict: This is a fun, sappy, super swoon-worthy read. It took me...eh, a day to finish it (if you count 2am as the same day, that is). It was very clean and appropriate for the YA genre, but does not skip out on the heat between Kate and Cooper. I loved it!
So this book was completely amazing. Second book I've read by Cindi, and I can't wait to read more. She has a way of making you feel like you are there with the characters. I love it. She doesn't need sex scenes to make her books good. They are swoon worthy on their own!
When Kate asks Cooper to help her catch her dream guy, she didn't realize their closeness would cause a ripple effect in both their lives.
