When your life feels like a bad movie, rewrite the script.

When Willa Schofer's father comes home from a business trip with an über-famous new fiancée, Willa's senior year blows up in paparazzi-fueled flames. Overnight, she has a new house, a new car, and a new soon-to-be stepbrother--the unbelievably hot, unbelievably arrogant, Finn McCain. Thank god he's constantly pushing her buttons, or she might do something irresponsible. Like fall for the jerk.

Just when Willa's decided to avoid him for, oh, ever, Finn lands in the center of her senior project team. Seriously--how hard is it to shake a guy? At least her work on the project snagged the attention of the (second) hottest guy in school. He might only be into her because of her famous stepmom, and he's not quite as exciting as a certain annoying housemate, but at least she's allowed to crush on the guy.

Because crushing on your annoying stepbrother? So not cool.

So far so good, I have enjoyed every Entangled Crush book to come out that I’ve read and this book did not disappoint.  This was an adorably cute quick read that kept me interested throughout the whole book.  There was a lot of drama and angst between the characters and their families.  Very interesting plot as well, even though I may not see it happening, I guess it could if you knew the right people, but still adorable.

We meet Willa who is all pro dad coming home finally from his work project until he comes home with the star of the movie and is about to marry her.  Talk about life turning upside down! Of course as you can imagine there will be drama, after all it’s not every day a movie star as big as Mia comes into your life, now you have to deal with paparazzi, and a new soon to be stepbrother Finn.  But I don’t think that’s the biggest part of this book, I really think it’s more about the relationship between Willa and her father.  They have spent so long being alone together that it’s different when he finally has a chance to move on from the loss of Willa’s mother.  This I think is the more significant story line, its tough moving on from a loss even if it did happen so long ago. 

But let’s not put any less light on Finn, because he is adorable.  He wants to protect everyone and you see a budding romance between the two characters.  Right now it’s more of a crush but oh it can be so much more, and I can’t wait to find out how it progresses.  But the short moments they do have even if they infuriate Willa, they definitely have something there.  I almost feel bad for his mother because she sounds like she is really trying hard with everyone and everything, I do hope it works out for her in the end. 

Overall this was a cute story, but I will say that when I received this book I too did not know it was part of a series.  Will have to research more in the future before I pick up a book, but that’s okay because now it just makes me want to read the second book that much more because I was left wanting more of these two main characters.  Well really all the characters.  It was cute that we did get to see a bit of Sloane in there.  But really I need to know what is going to happen with Willa and Finn, and their parents.
