Did you ever have a crush on the class clown? You know, that goofy (but somehow charming) weirdo who could make you laugh so hard and so unexpectedly that you might snort? Someone equal parts hilarious and infuriating, impossible to ignore but easy to get exasperated by?
Allow me to introduce you, then, to Tobin Bui: The class clown all grown up—well, at least, he’s older, but he’s not really any more mature. Ten years out of high school, Tobin’s turned his brazen silliness into an income stream as a popular gamer on YouTube. By “adult” standards, he’s doing well. He owns a house! He has an agent! And his latest video is going bananas online, increasing his follower count exponentially overnight.
But Tobin’s starting to feel burned out. He’s running out of ideas, and that dreaded mixture of pressure and expectation is a weight on his shoulders. So when his old high school nemesis, the buttoned-up, future-planning, pristine, and unruffled beauty influencer Lily Wang asks him to collaborate, he’s intrigued.
There’s nothing Tobin loves more than ruffling Lily’s feathers, and with the Whole Internet watching, it’s not long before their natural (sometimes swear-word-filled!) banter captivates viewers everywhere. And I was captivated, too, instantly shipping Tobin and Lily, eagerly waiting for them to realize that their playful hatred was actually true loooooooove.
My fellow nerdy romance readers looking for a sexy, fun, fresh new series (I’m looking at you, sister-in-law Isa), this novel is an honest-to-goodness delight. Smash that download button and enjoy!
