One real boyfriend + one fake boyfriend = a whole lot of trouble.
Sloane Whitaker never expected to like living in Texas, but after a few months in the Lone Star State, she has to admit she likes the food, the school, and the boy next door. What she doesn’t like is the fact that half her family is still back in New York. Convincing her dad to relocate to Texas requires making their upcoming visit as perfect as possible. The perfect dinner, the perfect daughter…with the perfect boyfriend.
But when her not-so-perfect boyfriend Tru Dorsey is suddenly not-so-available, Sloane has to find another dad-impressing guy to show off at dinner. Tru himself suggests enlisting the help of a fake boyfriend, but the reality of another guy with Sloane on his arm might be more than Tru can manage. Add in a mysterious blackmailer and a divided family, and Sloane and Tru’s relationship might not be able to handle the heat.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a bad boy next door, the good girl who snags his heart, and one epically disastrous ruse-gone-wrong. Join the fun at your own risk.

It's no secret that I love the Creative HeArts series. There's only one more book after this one, and I'm sad to see it come to an end. But Tru and Sloane don't let us down.
I loved that both Tru and Sloane are dealing with th... ...more
I didn't realize how anxious I had been for the continuation of Tru and Sloane's story until this book landed on my Kindle! These characters really captured my heart in Ten Things Sloane Hates About Tru and I've been patiently waiting to find out what was going to happen with them, because we wer... ...more
OVerall liked. Liked the storyline. Like the writing and the characters. Loved Tru..
Tru wasn’t perfect. He didn’t claim to be either. He did what he thought was best and at the end he was amazeballs. I loved how he decided on his own to get help so he can become a better person. And although this... ...more

I KEEP LOVING THIS SERIES!
After reading Ten Things Sloane Hates About Tru, I was excited to keep reading their story, and this one most definitly did not disappoint. Actually, this book was deeper and heavier than the first one, and I really appreciated that.
Once again, I rea... ...more
I love the Creative HeArts series and was excited to read more about Sloane and Tru even though I didn't read 10 Things Sloane Hates About Tru. I wish I had read that book so that I could see how they got their start.
Sloane is finally adjusting to Texas actually surprising herself by wanting to... ...more
Yes, yes, yes, yes, this is what I’m talking about! This book proves the “the first book is always better” theory wrong. Falling For the Girl Next Door more than made up for whatever was lacking in 10 Things Sloane Hates About Tru. It was full of the feel-good factor and just overall cuteness and... ...more
Finally, the follow up. At last, more Tru and Sloane.
I absolutely love that we got to see more of Sloane’s little brother Dylan in this book and I’m dying to see what happens in the next Sloane and Tru book in the series.
I’m really glad that this book addressed Tru’s drinking problem and we get t... ...more
"Received an advance reader copy for a fair review".
Thanks to Entangled Publishing and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review Falling for the Girl Next Door by Tera Lynn Childs! This story begins right where Ten Things Sloane Hates About Tru leaves off. Tru admits he has a drinking prob... ...more
I didn't read the first book about Sloan and Tru, and felt that I had missed some important back story information. But it didn't stop me from becoming involved in this pair's entanglements. It was great to be able to watch them find strength deep inside them, and be able to work through issues,... ...more
I enjoyed Sloane and Tru's newest adventure at Austin NextGen Academy. Like their first book together, they are both dealing with some difficult situations with their families and for Tru, the way he deals with them. However, as the story twists and turns along the way from the last weeks of scho... ...more
Tru and Sloane are back!
I really enjoyed their second installment, even though I couldn't get behind one (okay, two) of the big decisions they made in the book. They saw the error of their ways eventually, and really, who hasn't made dumb decisions while in their teens and beyond? Far be it from... ...more

I quite enjoyed Falling for the Girl Next Door by Tera Lynn Childs. It’s a fast-paced, entertaining, and really well-written YA contemporary romance. It was cute and sweet, but it also had a little bit of angst and drama, too, which made for a great well-rounded read... ...more
An entertaining read with well-developed characters, a wonderful creative setting, some real-life problems, and a sweet romance I could totally get behind.
I haven't read any of the other books in this series (including the first book which tells how Sloane and Tru got together) but it didn't matt... ...more
I received this book via NetGallery in exchange for my honest review.
This book continues on from book 1, but this book deals with a bit more serious issues. I would recommend reading the first book before this one to be able to follow the whole story.

I love this series. Everytime I get right back into the world of Austin and NextGen, with all the characters from the other books and it only makes me want to read more and more ^^
Though this is one of my favourites, not only because it was the first one, but because I really like Sloane, a kick... ...more
This is a cute YA romance. I haven’t read the others in the series (this is Book 5), but I don’t feel it is absolutely necessary. It would have helped with the back story of Sloane and Tru, but I was invested in the characters anyway.
Sloane is a Texas transplant who is slowly learning to love her... ...more

Okay, so I wasn’t completely thrilled with the Sloane and Tru’s first book but this one was marginally better. We learned a lot more about the problems these two main characters face and how they over come them. I enjoyed the characters and a plot a lot more in this book than I did the last one.... ...more
Falling for the Girl Next Door by Tera Lynn Childs....I enjoyed the story, it was well written with likeable characters. I loved watching Sloane and Tru's stories be told.
