There’s a thin line between love and hate.

Elena Chestnut has been chatting with an anonymous boy late into the night. It’s a very You’ve Got Mail situation, and she has no idea who he is. He can’t be Oliver Prince, hot-and-bashful son of the family running the rival sporting goods store. Their fancy sales strategies are driving Elena’s family out of business. Elena’s mystery boy has teamed up with her in their latest sales strategy, an augmented reality game, to help her win the grand-prize plane tickets. Money’s so tight Elena’s going to miss senior year spring break with her friends if she can’t win this game.

The girl Oliver's fallen head-over-heels for online had better not be Elena Chestnut. She's his angry, vindictive Latin tutor, the daughter of his dad’s business rival, and the one girl he’d never even think of kissing. She’s definitely not his online crush, because that girl is funny, sweet, and perfect.

When Oliver asks to reveal their names at the Valentine’s Day dance, their IRL relationship will either ruin what they have online, or they’ll discover just how thin the line between love and hate really is.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains swearing, snowball fights, and sexual tension that could melt the North Pole. Read at your own risk.


5 stars: “This was so sweet and heartwarming, I do want a big hug right now. It was not too much sweetness, though, and it tackled quite a lot of nice topics, such as sexual identity, divorce, with on the one hand seriousness and on the other hand a lot of fun and humour, too! These many ingredients made the perfect recipe for a heartwarming novel that made my heart melt, for sure!–Sophie, Where Are the Books?

5 stars: “I absolutely loved Any Boy But You! It's perfect for rom-com fans, especially if, like me, you love both You've Got Mail and Gilmore Girls!” –Ambur, Burning Impossibly Bright

4 stars: “Finally something to end my disappointing books streak. I was sold when I read You've Got Mail in the summary, and it delivered.–Hristina Petrov, I’ll Be Fine Alone Reads

5 stars: “What makes this book different is one 2 sporting goods stores are involved in a town where it is Christmas 365 days a year (yep that's right 365 days) an the Chestnuts have one and the Prince's have the other. During a app game that the Prince's came up with, Elena and Oliver start talking not knowing who the other is and BOOM! Instant chemistry!–Shawna Cramer, Seashells and Puppy Tails

4 stars: “This novel was a fun, quick read. The pages kept going by!–Dee, Goodreads Reviewer

5 stars: “A Romeo and Juliet type tale without all the killing and death. Star-crossed lovers and a family feud make for an enjoyable read. Readers will be sucked in from the very first page and will be eagerly turning pages to see what happens next. Definitely recommend!” –Kristen Cambensy, Victim of Books

4 stars: “If this book was a dish, then this book was made just right. The right amount of fluff and puff romance, character development, and also conflict.–Janella, The Purple Nightingale

5 stars: “One of my favourite YA novels from last year was Julie Hammerle’s The Sound of Us. What made that novel stand out so much to me, besides its theme, was the characters. They were uniquely drawn and not falling into stereotypes. The same holds true for Any Boy But You.–Sascha Darlington, Sascha Darlington’s Microcosm Explored

4 stars: “If you like You've Got Mail and Gilmore Girls, you are going to love this story. Any Boy But You
and look forward to reading more by this refreshing author.” –Susan, Susan Loves Books

5 stars: “The best thing about Any Boy But You is seeing how Elena and Oliver’s relationship develops and deepens. The novel also has a great cast of characters in this town, some of whom will be great candidates for sequel stories in the series. I can’t wait to spend more time in North Pole, Minnesota, and I’ve never said that about somewhere cold ever. –Eve Scalzo, Definitely, Possibly, Maybe

I have had a drought of adorable, cheesy books in my life. That’s right – this Book Princess has been reading serious books. Books full of non-cliches, not as much funnies for no reason, and a ton of originality. Don’t worry, I’m cringing for myself. When I saw this book on Netgalley, I knew that... ...more

A winter romance with a super cute heartthrob and a game that rivals pokemon. So what's not to love?

The character building is done well for the MCs. For the support cast it's not bad but they feel a bit cliche and flat in compare to the MCs. Not to say that I didn't like North Pole or it's... ...more

Super cute story set in a town that celebrates Christmas 365 days of the year in a quirk way that'll remind readers of Stars Hollow, Connecticut from Gilmore Girls, but where gay, lesbian and bisexual characters are relatively common. It's You've Got Mail for the Pokémon Go generation, but that d... ...more

As an unrepentant fan of You've Got Mail and YA lit, I gobbled this book up, faithful readers.

Any Boy But You by Julie Hammerle is a breath of fresh air.

Any Boy But You by Julie Hammerle is a sweet mix of a Romeo and Juliet tale with You’ve Got Mail. It shows that romances in small towns may be more complicated due to family history, but are just that much sweeter.
