Publisher's Summary

I live by three rules. One: I never get lower than an A in any class. Two: I never lose a cross-country race. And three: I never talk to Cade Kelley. 

Well, number three came crashing down the moment Principal Connell asks me to guide Cade back onto the right path. Something about helping him turn his life around. If only Principal Connell knew our history, he’d understand just what he’s asking.   

But, I have an incessant need to please all adults, so of course I say yes. When Cade seems pleased as well, I can’t help but wonder if this is part of some scheme. A plan he’s worked up to finish me once and for all. Apparently, what he did in junior high wasn’t enough.   

Just when I think I have everything figured out, my life spirals out of control. Suddenly, adults suck - especially parents - and pleasing them becomes the last thing I want to do. What confuses me even more is in the moment I choose to run away, the first person I go to is the one guy to whom I swore I would never get close.   

Hopefully, the Cade I’ve uncovered won’t hurt me, because I’m so close to breaking.

Cute, fun, flirty and plenty of YA angst!

I'm really enjoying these Rules of Love books! I've already read book #3 as well. I couldn't help myself. They are just so much fun. Yes, they're YA and I'm a grown woman. But I just can't help reading these fun, lighthearted and very sweet stories about young love and teens figuring out life and how to navigate through the craziness of those years.

If you're a YA lover, I highly recommend this series. They can be read in any order and bring hours of enjoyment! ;-)

Do you remember your first crush? What about your first "sworn enemy?" I definitely remember several of my first crushes. Ha! Young love at preschool and on the elementary school ground. *.*
I don't think I really had a sworn enemy though, a couple girls that I didn't quite mesh with but more so on their part than mine. But I think that's the same with everyone in life, trying to navigate friendships, relationships, struggles, school, work, everything.

Penny thinks she's doing pretty well and life is going swimmingly. Until the moment when it all changes. How did her life get so messed up and complicated. Definitely the moment when Cade came into it. Well, maybe not the moment back in Junior High with his comment and teasing, but the moment in high school where she's asked to help him with his school work. Yep, definitely then. Now she's running moment to moment trying to figure out her feelings, her life and friendships.

The author knows how to write some cute YA scenes and mix in plenty of angst and drama. It can't be YA without all of the angst and drama right? I love it! Penny and Cade were fun characters to watch them realize that what they thought wasn't quite what was real. I loved the flirty banter and sweet/tender moments. Not sweet and tender necessarily in a romantic sense but in a friend being there for another friend in a moment of need.

Grab a copy, or one of each of the three books in the series and have fun! My teenage daughters and preteen have been listening to these with me or reading them and have enjoyed them as well. I'm really enjoying this narrator a lot, her voice works great as a teenage girl and she can add in a lot of personality for the characters while narrating!

Content: Clean. Some kissing, the couple fall asleep together after a late night talking, nothing sexual happens. There is talk about divorce, jail and broken families, and how the characters navigate those different circumstances. I thought it was written in a great way but if those are sensitive topics for you, now you know that this books discusses them.

Happy Reading!!!

Fun story

This was a fun story. The plot thickens and twists and turns throughout. Liked the growth of the characters. Definitely worth listening to.

Great series!

Another fun read about The Rules of Love! Meyer’s second book in the series brings a new love story with new challenges. Readers will relate to the angst and excitement of teen love along with real life trials. Will long-held grudges and prejudices keep Penny from recognizing Cade’s potential? Is it possible one’s nemesis can actually be one’s knight in shining armor? Some fun adventures with this unlikely couple, who have more in common than appearances had let on.

Cade & Penny

I really liked Cade and Penny's enemy's to falling in love relationship. They both experienced character growth separately and as a couple. They both have cheating parents - I really could have done without those storylines especially Penny's parents. The narrator did a good job of switching voices to fit the different characters. The ending was really sweet and brought them full circle.

loved everything but...

this series caught me off guard. it is one of those rare decent books where a relatable heroine faces unexpected changes good and bad owns up to mistakes and meets love, point is great story... only one issue there are a few phrases and words that are taken from '#1 Rule Don't Date the Coaches Daughter.' the most common 'contemplative'
