Her wicked revenge, or his wicked heart…

Hazel McCallister loves her life. Perfect grades. Perfect best friend. Perfect boyfriend. Until her perfect boyfriend cheats on her with her perfect best friend. Now Hazel’s in free fall—until her best friend’s brother, Felix, gives her the perfect idea. Reclaim her power by taking revenge on her cheating ex.

Felix James loves his life. Casual relationships. Loads of surfing. He’s as drama-free as they come. But he can’t stand by when his sister steals her best friend’s boyfriend, and the dude insists it was Hazel’s fault. So Felix vows to help turn Hazel into a girl her ex can’t resist—so then she can break his heart.

With an alliance in place, Hazel’s revenge is all but assured. But with each piece of payback, she feels a stronger attraction to Felix, even though revenge will turn her into a girl Felix could never be with. And soon Hazel has to make an impossible choice: revenge…or Felix, the boy who’s stolen her heart.

WARNING! This book contains betrayal, revenge, and that most tempting vice of all, the bad boy you know you can’t have.

This had teen angst written all over it, which is right up my alley, and I was not disappointed. Hazel is heartbroken when her boyfriend cheats on her with her best friend, Kimmy. When Kimmy's older brother, Felix, comes up with a plan to get back at the two cheaters, Hazel's heartbreak turns to ang ...more

I was a bit skeptical if I will like this book when I first saw it in Entangled Teen’s request list but I was seriously craving for some light and fluffy read and THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THIS BOOK HAS BROUGHT ME.

I wasn’t really a fan of the “falling-for-your-bestfriend’s-brother” trope. I haven’t read ...more

Love, love, love. It's like the Beatles could see into the future to the swoony-ness that is Hazel Basil and Felix James (aka Felix the Cat and Player of La Playa) when they came up with the song "All You Need Is Love." I've...if I'm being honest...not understood the appeal of holiday themed books b ...more

Today is the day that Not Okay, Cupid comes out, so it was the perfect day to dig into to this book and write this review.

Hazel has plans, big plans. She's got her whole life figured out until at least the age of thirty. She will marry her high school boyfriend Jay and will have a great, perfect family with him.

Not Okay Cupid is a heart-meltingly sweet read that will make you smile every once in a while. It’s just a really good book. Yes, you know that it will have a happy ending (the title gives that one away plus) all Entangled books have that in common, the happily ever after. That doesn’t mean that I e ...more

Firstly I’d like to thank the publisher for approving my NetGalley request for this eBook. This was another book where the blurb caught my attention and made me want to know more.

OMG- did I ever love this novel. NOT OKAY CUPID is pure YA gold, with a cast of endearing characters who will work their way into your heart and not let go. I loved Hazel with a thousand loves.

ARC kindly provided in exchange for honest review

I love these kinds of books. The whole "fake boyfriend" thing which ends up being more than you ever thought it'd be? I eat them up. They're predictable and fluffy and a walking cliche, but I love them all the same.

This one was a great book, easy ...more

By A Leisure Moment January 13, 2016


For a Valentine’s Day tale of epic proportions, love in all the wrong (or maybe it’s right?) places, and opposites coming together to form a cataclysmic duo, I highly recommend this book! 2016 is looking promising for new releases, and Not Okay, Cupid definitely has a spot on my list.

ARC received from the publisher via NetGalley.

Not Okay Cupid is a quick sweet read with lots of humor thrown in. This book is all high school can be at times. Friendship, love, revenge - makes getting through the days difficult, but having Felix in school makes Hazel days so much more than she could ...more

First posted at Words Fueled by Love.

A perfectly cheesy, complete with a happy ending, made most definitely with teenagers in mind, story. Seriously, this was probably the most "young adult", YA book I've read in a long time. The dialogue and the emotions were very much equivalent to the 17 year old ...more

Not Okay, Cupid is a very cute enemies-to-lovers story that threw in a touch of best friend's brother with a fake relationship/revenge plot just to keep things interesting. It's my first from this author, but it definitely won't be my last!

The characters of Not Okay were on the youngish side of high ...more
