How Willa Got Her Groove Back (Creative HeArts)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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.
This Entangled Teen Crush book contains an unbelievably hot bad boy, an unbelievably famous actress, and all the drama that comes with adding both to your family. Oh, and a forbidden flirtation with a soon-to-be stepbrother.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

How Willa Got Her Groove Back (Creative HeArts) “Your life is different now,” he said. “Forever.”

This was an okay story about a girl whose father get engaged to a movie star.

I could see why Willa was so bent out of shape in this book, as it did seem like her father was rushing into this new marriage, and even letting his own beliefs shift a bit to compensate for the new woman in his life. I think she could have maybe sat down with him and talked to him though, and even maybe given the new wife a chance.

The storyline in this was mainly Willa moaning about the new wife, and there wasn’t much romance at all which was a real shame. I felt like this possible attraction between Willa and Finn could have been explored a lot more, and instead absolutely nothing happened on the romance front at all.

The ending to this was quite surprising because I didn’t realise that we wouldn’t get an end to the story, and that the story would continue on in another book. I really hope that the sequel has some romance in it though!

6 out of 10
