Publisher's Summary

Adorkable (ah-dor-kuh-bul): Descriptive term meaning to be equal parts dorky and adorable. For reference, see Sally Spitz.

Seventeen-year-old Sally Spitz is done with dating. Or at least, she's done with the horrible blind dates/hookups/sneak attacks her matchmaking bestie, Hooker, sets her up on. There's only so much one geek girl and Gryffindor supporter can take. Her solution: she needs a fake boyfriend. And fast. 

Enter Becks, soccer phenom, all-around-hottie, and Sally's best friend practically since birth. When Sally asks Becks to be her F.B.F. (fake boyfriend), Becks is only too happy to be used. He'd do anything for Sal - even if that means giving her PDA lessons in his bedroom, saying she's "more than pretty", and expertly kissing her at parties. The problem: Sally's been in love with Becks all her life - and he's completely clueless.

This is a great Book

I just finished Adorkable . This was an amazing story . I truly enjoyed this book. The best part of this book was the narrator Andrea Emmes . Andrea is always able to use her voice to take a story and turn it into an experience. When you listen , you get drawn into the story. And when you have a great story like Adorkable , and an extremely talented Narrator like Andrea Emmes , you can't loose. I highly recomend Adorkable.

Cute, but ...

You expect a certain number of leaps of faith and lapses of logic in YA romances, but this one had more than it’s share.. The whole premise was weak and it was compounded by these sometimes ridiculous ways the author kept the plot in the air. And the dialogue. Oh my. Everyone in it was a dork.

Amazing!! And Clean!!!

It's so hard to find a relatively clean book to read these days that can really suck you in but this book can do just that!! I couldn't stop listening to it! I wish there was more by this author on audible! *It does swear a little, nothing major, but no sex or anything like that.

Not bad

This is a predictable book but too cute to pass for another night of fun reading. Andrea Emmes isn't bad to listen to :).

Passable story. Decent voice work.

I don't expect much from a teen romance story, but this seemed to fall a bit short of even that. Some character reactions seemed contrived, and the protagonist seemed too clueless to be human.

Otherwise, it's enjoyable enough.

Really cute highschool romance :)

The story and main character are really cute. Slightly hard on the suspension of disbelief (How dense can some one be XD),
but very cute and heart warming ^__^.
The narration was good as well :)

Everything you expect for the fake boyfriend trope

If you are looking for a clean, YA romance and love the fake boyfriend trope, this is it.

This is my first time listening/reading a Cookie O'Gorman novel but it was constantly recommended by my Kindle and Audible accounts.

I am a fan of the fake boyfriend story. And the adorkable Sal, aka Sally, and her hot bestie since grade school, Becks, stick to that story line. Sal is the unknowing geeky hot girl in her senior year. Her best gal friend Lillian, aka Hooker, and Sal's mom are concerned she's not living to her full romantic potential. They constantly, and for me - annoyingly, bombard her with surprise blind dates. That bit is part of the plot set up for the fake boyfriend, but it was a bit over the top for my taste.

To stop the blind dates, she asks Becks, also a top soccer player, to be her fake BF for one month. He accepts. Sal learns that just because he's 'hers' many are not fully buying into it including a lot oif his whiny, hot girl fan club. So they have to 'prove it.'

Becks and are a cute match. Cookie does a great job of taking us on the 'doubt rollercoaster' - does he really like her or not? But, to be honest, there is a stronger character in this story. The boy who challenges this duo is set up as anti-hero, but he almost overshadows the main characters. I wanted to finish this novel quickly and move to his story. (Cookie? Are you considering?)

The narration was terrific. Especially with Sal's weird habit of speaking in German when she was passionate about expressing her secret feelings.

There was light cursing, no sex scenes, perfect for younger YA romance fans.

Great book, a little predictable

I loved this book, but I found that every time something seemed like it was going to happen, it didn’t. I found it a little boring, and somewhat unrealistic. I still moved this story, although I would just add a little more excitement.
