This is the eighth book in the Mates, Dates series. T.J. is doing a joint-school project and is assigned to work with Nesta's boyfriend, Luke. He tells her that he really likes her and says he will break up with Nesta so that he can go out with T.J. but T.J. is going out with Steve and doesnt want to hurt him or Nesta. Theres also Sian, a girl working with them on the preoject, and she tells T.J. that Luke said the same thing to her. When T.J. confronts Luke, he says that he didnt, and that Sian is just hoplessly in love with him and threw herself at him. Then Nesta starts to find out and she wont talk to T.J. and it becomes T.J. and Izzie against Lucy and Nesta. Read it to find out what happens!!
I find it absolutely amazing that an author can make every single book in a series as good as the last one, if not better. When I found out this book was focusing on TJ Watts, I have to say I wasn't quite sure about it. See, I've always seen her as a somewhat boring character. It just never seemed like she had any qualities that made her stand out from the rest. Well, I was wrong! In this book, you see a totally different side of TJ. For one thing, she seems to have a naughty side and she also seems extremely mixed up. In her situation, who wouldn't be? She really proves that the four of them are INCREDIBLE mates by dropping Luke. I'm so glad I gave the next book in one of my favorite series a chance.
I really like this series so far. This is because I can relate to some of the problems the characters run into. Their problems are real life situations that anyone one could have.These books never have a boring point in them you never want to stop reading them. It was hard for me to put it down it keeps you on the edge and wanting to know more.I really like how they make it feel as if your there with them and ond one their friends. Overall I loved the book and hope to read the whole series. I recommand this book to girls who are between 13 and 15 years old and whose friends are a big part in their lives.
Mates,Dates and Tempting Trouble book #8 had a good plot but throughout the book started getting a bit odd. For one thing Luke, the boy Nesta has been dating, seems much different from the book before, Mates, Dates, and Sequin Smiles. Also this book just didn't have the same feel as the other books. The others felt comfortable this one felt somewhat desperate.
