Peek Inside It Had To Be You

James Parson’s military dad is going to pull him out of boarding school if he doesn’t shape up. What better way to prove he’s now responsible than becoming the committed boyfriend of new student Edelweiss, a U.S. diplomat’s daughter?

Edelweiss has traveled the world, but when it comes to friends, boys, and high school life, she knows exactly nothing. She’s now on a mission to learn it all. James will help her experience the ultimate high school life—if she’ll be his fake girlfriend. And fake is perfect, because he’s exactly the kind of player she’d never date.

Praise

An excellent book that young adults will love. It has everything a young adult romance should. I enjoyed it a lot.” –Kimberly Switzer, Librarian at County of Lennox and Addington

“This is your typical love story, but it was written so uniquely and so many twists that had me wondering if they were really going to be together in the end. I loved the writing style, the duo POVs of the two main characters, and the change you see in the end from each character.” –Milli, Miracle Milli Reads

It Had To Be You is a sweet escape! Lizzy Charles captivated me from the beginning, and I couldn't put my Kindle down.” –Sarah, Goodreads Reviewer

“Because it was an ebook, I was unsure if I would be able to sit down and actually read it. I started it while doing dishes. Needless to say, I was up all night reading it. I couldn't put it down. I was so engrossed in the romance.” –Amanda Stelter, Goodreads Reviewer

“Lizzy Charles has created a sweet cliché romance by showing the beauty in interracial relationships. It’s one of those ‘junk food’ books you read for a guilty pleasure, not because you’re trying to have some kind of an epiphany.” –Tara Sheehan, Artistic Bent

This book was exactly what I needed. Private high school, rich girls, rich boys and a new girl who has been homeschooled all her life.” –Kim, Goodreads Reviewer

“I loved the different characters, the wonderful friends, the loving families and I really loved James and Edelweiss together. The story is entertaining, captivating and well written.” –Irina Wolpers, Always Time for a Nice Cup of Tea and a Good Book!

Extraordinarily good YA romance. Interracial and very sweet.” –Tami, Queen Editing

It Had To Be You is another cute romance put out by Entangled Teen. I loved Edel. She was naive, but really strong.”–Kristi Housman, Goodreads Reviewer

Cute quick read.” –C. Bond, Goodreads Reviewer

“This book has the typical popular guy, the mean girl and mystery best friends. It's sweet, it's funny, and it's about personal growth.” –D.M. Duncan, Goodreads Reviewer

It Had To Be You by Lizzy Charles is a young adult, fake boyfriend/girlfriend high school romance that is sweet with a little bit of drama. James and Edelweiss both need each other to survive a year at the Academy but got so much more than they were expecting.” –Natalie Miller, Books & Boys Book Blog

“This was a fun story filled with lovable main character and tons of humor.” –P. Loveday, Lovely Loveday Blog

Let me start with this, what a stinking cute story. I have to admit that I was hooked from the beginning. I'll be honest when I started this book I had a little bit of a hard time connecting with Edel, mostly because all I could think was she was this pretentious rich girl. Thankfully as the book... ...more

My first thought ? That was freaking adorable. So cute, so freaking damn cute. Did I say it was cute ?

Obviously I liked the book, I read it in a day, and the fake dating trope is probably my favourite ... No regrets.
