What's a little blackmail between classmates?

Opinionated, unconventional Ayla Hawkins isn’t the type to use blackmail, but sometimes a girl has to stand up for what’s right. So when she catches Mr. Perfect Luke Pressler doing something decidedly un-perfect, Ayla’s got the dirt she needs to get Luke on her side—in the form of her new fake boyfriend.
One mistake. All Luke wanted was a night to goof off, to blow off steam. The next thing he knew, he was pretending to date Ayla Hawkins. But his little blackmailer turns out to be kind. Honorable. And just the breath of fresh air he didn’t even realize he was suffocating for. But Luke and Ayla come from different worlds, and once the terms of their agreement end, their fauxmance will, too.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book features adult language, sexual situations, and plenty of girl power. Reading may result in swooning, laughing, and looking for a Luke of your own.

Its a fast read novel, I liked that it switched between Lukes and Aylas point of view without repeating everything that happened twice.

I'm part of the blog tour for this book! Check out my blog on April 14th for an excerpt and a guest post from the author:

A heart-warming YA about a ‘rich’, popular jock and a sweet, creative ‘nerd’. This story could have been so cliche and predictable but it actually was pretty unique and didn’t go the way I expected. I liked the characters and how realistic they were, and, also not as they seemed. Everyone has many s ...more

I wouldn’t say I instantly fell in love with this contemporary romance. I think there were moments where it fell a little flat for me. A lot of the story was predictable, especially the Jenna thing. I knew it was coming and I knew it was going to be the phone. I wish there would have been more of a ...more

By Wendy June 19, 2017

Incriminating Dating by Rebekah L. Purdy is a YA contemporary romance. Some discretion may be necessary for younger readers for the explicit language.

Ayla isn’t part of the popular crowd at school. She cares about things outside of school and wants to make a difference in the world. While this alon ...more

By Danielle's March 22, 2017

I enjoyed Luke's story in this book. He is a complex character with so much to offer and a great guy. His home life is the best part of this novel.

Ayla, I didn't like as much. Overall she was okay she just had her moments. Ayla is a super geek. She dresses in sci-fi t-shirts and plays video games. S ...more

How can you bring about a change if you're a nobody? Date a somebody!

Incriminating Dating is sweet story of trying to fit it, and fight for what you believe in.

The plot is a little predictable yet the author has managed to put a unique spin on the fake turn real relationship story line.

Ayla is comf ...more

Love this author. A nice ,cute read. Opposites flung together- the popular jock and pretty though not so skinny nerd. This story is all about looking below the surface and really getting to know someone as things are not always what they seem. It's also about friendship and standing up to the 'mean' ...more

By Sabina March 25, 2017

I loved reading "Incriminating Dating' so much that when it came to the climax when things got complicated I just couldn't stand the thought that Luke and Ayla may be torn apart. Gosh, that was suspenseful! I loved the way these two people, coming from different social groups, found out that they ha ...more

I received a copy of this from Entangled Teen through netgalley.

Ayla and Luke are a new favorite couple for me. While it sucks that Ayla blackmailed him, I'm so happy she did. I loved that while she was confident in so many things, she also freaked out about a lot. Especially when it came to how oth ...more
