Shy bookworm Amy McIntyre is about to compete for a dream scholarship, and the only way to win is to transform from sidekick to the heroine of her own life. But that level of confidence has never come easy.

The solution? A competition coach. The problem? The best person for the job is the guy she's secretly crushing on…local surfer celebrity Toff Nichols.

He’s a player. He’s a heartthrob. He makes her forget basic things, like how to breathe. How can she feel any confidence around him?

To her surprise, Toff agrees to help. And he’s an excellent teacher. Amy feels braver—maybe even brave enough to admit her feelings for him. When their late-night practices become less about coaching and more about making out, Amy’s newfound confidence wavers.

But does Toff really like her or is this just another lesson?


"Roberts has the teen voice down pat: Both of the appealing protagonists are devoted to their respective passions but also deal with deeper issues (Amy’s pastry chef father is now unemployed and Toff’s surfer dad is about to marry Vivian’s mother)." - Kirkus Reviews

“What a cute read! There's humor, book references galore, great family dynamics, and of course plenty of romantic moments. This plot was done very well.  I will be recommending it book lovers, bookstragram addicts, and those looking for a breezy romance with heart.” -Lindsey F., Goodreads

A fun beach read of a book.” -Jillian B., NetGalley

“As a librarian, any book with a main character who is a bookworm is an obvious "YES PLEASE". It was a cute book, and an easy read. Amy was a really well-rounded character that wasn't a total "nerd" trope. Toff was fun, and I loved their interactions.” -Dee F., NetGalley

Very cute, super sweet, and oh so funny!” -CeCe H., NetGalley

“Young adult readers will swoon over the cute story and love the fact social media plays a large part of the couple's success. I thought the book was well written and really, really uplifting and cute.” -Dawn W., Goodreads

“Adorable. And a bookish girl's dream come true. A perfect homage to book-loving fantasies with a healthy dose of empowerment and romance.” -Babel, Goodreads

A fun light read that any bookworm can appreciate! Lots of great pop culture references and really funny moments, I'd recommend!” -Shan D., NetGalley

“This was a super adorable fun book-nerd rom'com read. Full of swoonworthy moments and a lol of pop culture references, I thought it was an adorable book with heart and depth. I enjoyed the characters and the relationship building. I also loved all the quirky fun references as well as the shipping!!! Definitely something some of my older students would enjoy reading!” -Sarah B., Goodreads

A very cute sequel/ spin off to 'The replacement crush' by Lisa Brown Roberts. This time Amy MacIntyre, Vivian's best friend and co-blogger, gets her own chance at HEA. Amy has had a crush on Toff Nichols, Vivian's future stepbrother, for a very long time, but they seem to have very little in common ...more

Surfer Boy + Bookish Girl = Cutest Story Ever!

I laughed, cried, sighed and fell madly in love, so it's no surprise that The Book Worm Crush became an instant favorite! This story was the perfect mix of being cute and fluffy while also being deep and emotional. And with characters that leaped off of ...more

Hello, lovely readers!

It’s not the easiest time to be a romance writer, yet here I am, five-starring my own book, but more important, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️-ing romance.

I’m deeply aware of the important cultural sea change brought about by the #metoo movement and its impact on my favorite genre.

It’s more impo ...more

By Susan's Reviews February 26, 2020

Well written, often amusing, but overly long. Amy and Toff are a cute couple, but polar opposites. He is a surfer god, and she is a book nerd, intent on winning a contest to meet her favourite author. I thought their collaboration on making Amy more popular on instagram, etc., were adorable. I loved ...more

The Bookworm Crush is my first book by Lisa Brown Reynolds and now I want to go back and read the first book in this world!! This was super cute! It’s been a long time since I’ve read a really sweet and fun Young Adult novel and this one certainly hit the spot. Huge props to the author for making me ...more

This was such a cute, fluffy and endearing contemporary romance story! Loved it! After falling in love with this author's story telling when I read an ARC of the replacement crush, I was so excited to see the author was going to tell Toff and Amy's story as well in the Bookworm Crush. It was definit ...more

So I accidentally picked this one because I loved the cover and the title not realizing it was a YA romance about 18 year olds. I read it anyway and it was very cute and very sweet. ...more

By Elley October 18, 2019

GUH, this book. It's probably an older teen YA book because of some serious-times making out and lead up to sex, even though the actual sex scenes are fade-to-black. The characters are approximately 17 (summer before senior year of high school). This is one of those prime examples where YA really ne ...more

4.5 || Es war sooooo süüüüüüüss!!
Ich musste mehrmals lachen und mochte alle in dem Buch. Da war auch kein Drama das ich total übertrieben fand oder so. Fühlte sich durchaus echt an. Schreibstil war sehr angenehm. Muss mehr von der Autorin lesen. Für mich war das die perfekte feel good Lovestory. Ich ...more

The Bookworm Crush is such a cute book. As a bookworm and bookstagrammer myself, I loved the whole premise of this story. Fun bookish and pop culture references, talk about book reviews and arcs, book bloggers and vloggers- if it made my heart happy at this age, I can’t imagine how much I’d love thi ...more

This was one of those warm kind of book-with real kind of situations-where you can relate with so many things.

This book was way too cute. This book reminded me why i fall in love with books at first place. All those raw emotions about books and love for books-worked for me as a mirror. ...more

”She was a bookworm, not a daredevil.”

I feel as if I just read a book about my life—book blogger/reviewer life and all. I, too, am also way more comfortable with my nose in a book. They’re just so much easier to deal with than regular people! All jokes aside, this was beyond adorable.

Our heroine, Am ...more

Another day, another cheesy YA contemporary romance I fell in love with. Christopher, or 'Toff' was a hot surfer guy who messed around with girls. Amy Mclyntyre was a nerdy sweetheart whose world revolved around books and she loved romance. First and foremost, this book was super relatable and ridic ...more

By Tara October 27, 2019

The Bookworm Crush was a completely adorable and heartwarming YA romantic comedy. If you’re a bookworm, you’ll definitely recognize some aspects of yourself in Amy. I actually hadn’t read The Replacement Crush prior to reading this one so I can vouch for the fact that you can still understand 100% o ...more

Hello Again!

I am excited to be talking about this book! I feel like I have been dragging my feet in reading it for so long (if you follow me on Goodreads you know) up until like this past weekend I have been reading this book super slow. I honestly do not know why I loved this book. I think it was m ...more

OMG! I loved this book to death! This is the book written for book bloggers and readers alike. Especially those in love with romance books.

If you want a book that keeps a dopey smile plastered on your face, look no further. This book gave me all of the smiles and out loud laughs.

Toff was a smoking hot surfer who was everything a cocky boy is supposed to be. He even had a little bit of a broken backstory to add to his appeal. While Toff ...more
