Blurb (from Goodreads):
Sloane Whitaker never expected to like living in Texas, but after a few months in the Lone Star State, she has to admit she likes the food, the school, and the boy next door. What she doesn’t like is the fact that half her family is still back in New York. Convincing her dad to relocate to Texas requires making their upcoming visit as perfect as possible. The perfect dinner, the perfect daughter…with the perfect boyfriend.
But when her not-so-perfect boyfriend Tru Dorsey is suddenly not-so-available, Sloane has to find another dad-impressing guy to show off at dinner. Tru himself suggests enlisting the help of a fake boyfriend, but the reality of another guy with Sloane on his arm might be more than Tru can manage. Add in a mysterious blackmailer and a divided family, and Sloane and Tru’s relationship might not be able to handle the heat.

My rating: 3.25 of 5 stars
This was a YA contemporary romance, featuring Sloan and Tru from Ten Things Sloane Hates About Tru.
Sloan and Tru were both okay characters, and Sloan’s opinion of Texas had changed a lot from the first book. I also thought that Tru was quite brave to admit what he did to Sloan.
The storyline in this was about Sloan having to find a fake boyfriend to try and impress her father at their Christmas eve dinner, as well as Sloan wanting to talk her dad into moving to Texas. Thankfully the fake-boyfriend part of the story didn’t last too long though, as things got a bit silly when Tru got jealous.
The ending to this was okay, and it seemed like things were good between Sloan and Tru again.
