It's all fun and parties until someone falls in love in this modern fairy tale from author Kate Evangelista.
Caleb desperately needs a fake girlfriend. Either he attends a series of parties for his father’s law firm with a pretty girl on his arm, or he gets shipped off to Yale to start a future he’s not ready for and isn’t sure he wants. And sadly, the last unattached girl in his social circle has just made the grievous mistake of falling in love with him. Fortunately, Didi, recently fired waitress and aspiring painter, is open to new experiences. As the summer ticks by in a whirl of lavish parties, there’s only one rule: They must not fall in love!
Love is just a word one can use often to express a feeling toward something or someone. Real love is explainable. It may hit you when you least expected. Love has no boundary, no rules. No Love Allowed is a cute story of two high school students looking to have fun. Didi and Caleb just want to get through an arrangement and enjoy their summer. Caleb but an rule but something unexpected happens... they fall for each other. Even if this is their number one rule: no love allowed.
No Love Allowed opens with Didi losing her job. With nothing to do, she takes the offer Caleb presents her. This is to be his companion to his father's events. Didi would've been the last girl he ever set his eyes on but with his reputation, he's out of luck. Surprisingly, Didi takes the offer and he makes sure she's aware there is no love allowed. Doesn't he have a big head? As we follow they're summer adventures, we see them falling for one another. But these two are very stubborn. And they will go through unnecessary drama just to finally end up together.
Okay, so I really enjoy this type of story and I did like this one. But the end was rushed and yet it took a while too long. Let me explained, as I mentioned, this book has that high school drama. Unnecessary I tell you but at that age, this is common. Then once we get there, we are find out more about Didi's condition and everything is rushed from there. You pretty much get all the details in a page. This is my only issue with this book.
Overall, I enjoyed Didi and Caleb. They're adorable, stubborn and just cute. I really like Didi. I love her personality. She speaks her mind yet at the same time she is clue-less with garden party dresses. Seriously, a very cute story. A cute, cheesy story that puts a smile in your face. So if you're looking for a fast, cute story, then look no further. No Love Allowed is the one.
