Three Month Plan - Kimberley Patterson

3 Stars

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Kelly Callahan had everything going for her. Everything that is, except for a relationship. It wasn't for the lack of trying, it just seemed like she was a magnet for all the wrong ones. But all of that was about to change the minute she laid eyes on Jake.
On a dare from her close friend, Michelle, Kelly accepts a challenge to date and become Jake's girlfriend within three months. The consequence of losing is global humiliation, and she refuses to lose.

Enlisting the help of her childhood friend and confidant, Brian, Kelly manages to catch Jakes attention. She also unknowingly hooks Brian who tries to sabotage the plan. Kelly finds herself with a dilemma; take the final step with Jake and win the plan or follow her heart and reveal her feelings for Brian.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
Horses were one of my first loves, and writing soon followed. As a child, I spent hours writing poems, and short stories (about horses). My parents realized that I was horse-obsessed and decided to buy me one after taking riding lessons for two years. I think they hoped that all of the hard work, and hours spent mucking stalls would help me give up this expensive hobby. They were wrong. Writing is still a passion of mine, although now I primarily write fiction. My first novel, Red Rock, was published in 2010, and big surprise, there are horses in it. My second novel, The Three Month Plan was released August 2013.

MY REVIEW -
First off - Absolutely adorable cover! And the cover does fit the story. So two thumbs up for that.
As far as the story goes, it was just pretty good for me. Not bad tho, just not great. It was a cute idea for a story line but story lines like this have been done so many times before. And even though there was really good character development - I just didn't really like any of them very much! I mean, they were all nice and likable - they just didn't win my heart.

Now, this is suppose to be a YA book and I do agree. An older teen would probably like it much better than I did. My one problem was that the characters acted much younger than they were suppose to be. They were all in their 20's but if you didn't know that you would swear they were in high school. Which is good for a YA book!

One thing I do have to give credit for - the characters did stay true to themselves. I don't want to give away the story but I am so glad Kelly stayed true to hers beliefs and morals and did not give way to temptations!

And another thing I loved about the book was the way the chapters took turns from the POV of Brian and Kelly (I love books that do this) you really get to know both characters this way.

All in all this was a cute quick and enjoyable read! If you have an older teen looking for something light I would recommend this!
