Before I get into my review, let me tell you a bit more about the author. 


The Author

Sariah Wilson

Sariah Wilson has never jumped out of an airplane, never climbed Mt. Everest, and is not a former CIA operative. She has, however, been madly, passionately in love with her soulmate and is a fervent believer in happily ever afters—which is why she writes romance. She grew up in southern California, graduated from Brigham Young University (go Cougars!) with a semi-useless degree in history, and is the oldest of nine (yes, nine) children. She currently lives with the aforementioned soulmate and their four children in Utah, along with three tiger barb fish, a cat named Tiger, and a recently departed hamster that is buried in the backyard (and has nothing at all to do with tigers).

Sariah’s book ROYAL DATE was selected as one of the first winners in Amazon’s Kindle Scout program and is Kindle Press’s most successful author to date. She has sold five books to Montlake Romance, three to Kindle Press and helped launch Amazon Publishing’s Kindle In Motion technology with her latest release, ROYAL DESIGN. She was given her own Kindle World for THE ROYALS OF MONTERRA. Sariah has repeatedly hit Amazon’s overall Top 100 (both in and outside the U.S.) and been a #1 bestseller on Amazon category lists multiple times. Her books have been featured in USA TODAY and GLAMOUR UK.

About the Book

Now that life has finally given her everything she’s ever wanted, Mattie Lowe has one thing on her mind: Prom. Determined to throw the most epic prom ever, Mattie sets out to plan a memorable and magical event—one that would make the late John Hughes proud.

But when her gorgeous and perfect boyfriend, Jake Kingston hasn’t popped the most creative promposal of all time, Mattie starts to worry. Actually, Jake hasn’t asked her at all—he’s been distant and quiet. And Mattie isn’t about to go to her senior prom solo. Suddenly, it seems that everything is stacked against her and falling apart quickly. With rivals vowing to sabotage her event and her boyfriend’s odd behaviour, Mattie’s convinced the night is headed toward ruin. Will the snarky, purple-haired manga artist lead her class to an unforgettable night of fun and frolic or will she go down in high school history as the worst president to run the school?


My Review

Being so young at heart, I love a good Young Adult novel and this book didn’t disappoint. My only problem is that I hadn’t realised when I had requested it from Netgalley that it was the 2nd book in a series! How did I not know this? I found this out part way through the book so figured I would continue and read them in reverse order; kind of like seeing a prequel!

I had to remind myself that these guys were just kids because at times I disliked how immature some of the characters were; this didn’t take away from the book or the writing style of the book. If anything I think the author did very well to create such believable characters, even if some were nauseatingly annoying. When a character gets to you emotionally, whether that is in a good way or a bad way, then that just shows how well they have been written. Shaking off my judgement, I read as though I were a 17 year old with nothing but prom to worry about and I found myself really enjoying the story.

The cute romance between Mattie and Jake is lovely to read; and the dialogue felt real between the characters. I related to the bitchy, bully who wouldn’t leave her alone. It reminded me of my own school days and it was a nice relaxed read. It was enjoyable and charming. I will definitely be looking out for the first book in the series. I am hoping that we see more of these characters in the future, because it was a very enjoyable read.


Conclusion

This was a good read; cute, charming and full of fun. The writing style flowed very well and I have now added the author to my follow list on Goodreads! She has a vast array of books out and I look forward to seeing what else she has written.

Rating – 4 out of 5!

Thanks for reading 😀
