Kissing practice has never been more fun.
Kate ships tons of fictional couples, but IRL her OTP is her and Mick, the hot quarterback she’s crushed on since, like, forever. With only one semester left of senior year, it’s now or never if she wants to land him in time for prom. Since she’s flirtationally challenged, she enlists Cooper Callihan, the guy who turned popular seemingly overnight but who used to be a good friend.
Cooper lives and breathes rowing, but his partner just broke his wrist. When he remembers Kate’s good with a set of oars, he strikes a deal: help him train, and he’ll make sure her crush notices her. Only he didn’t know how addicting spending time with her would be. Or how the more successful the Operation is, the more jealousy he experiences.
The mission has been set. The troops have their marching orders. But what if the target is the wrong guy all along?
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains stargazing, accidental swimming, and poker swindling. This kissing practice will melt your ereader…and give you a new couple to ship.
Such a cute and quirky feel-good read with two easy to love main characters, blessedly little angst and just the right length to keep me interested right up until the end.
"I ship us, Kate. I want us to be Kaper or Coopte or Capote or whatever weird combination our names can make."
Operation Prom Date was a sweet quick read, I really enjoyed it.

Cutest book ever!
I feel like I should write a review full of emoji and memes and pop culture references.
The MCs were the best kind of sweet, adorable and funny, with great "voices".
I definitely need to read more by this author immediately. ...more

This will most likely be one of my favorite books in 2017, which isn't really strange because Cindi's Taking shots series was my favorite of 2016. I can't wait for... ...more

Operation Prom Date was the sweet, funny, swoony book I needed in my life right now!
Kate is a math-geek and fan girl, obsessed with TV shows and her *ships* (favorite couple pairings) and has been... ...more
So, this story really brings nothing new to the high school contemporary genre – but it is rather adorable. It follows a lot of the same tropes and clichés, but if you can handle the mindless gooiness, then you’re in for a fluffy book full of fun and heart.
I did enjoy Kate as a narrator. I really... ...more

This has to be the cutest, most adorable teen Entangled romance that I’ve read in a while! This book is all kinds of amazing.
I had read one book by Cindi Madsen before, but it was a NA book, Crazy Pucking Love, and I wasn’t impressed by the book or the writing. But this one i... ...more
Operation Prom Date is a really cute YA read. Cindi really knows how to take you back to your high school days and feel like you are right there again.
This book is told from both Kate and Cooper's POVs and it's really interesting to see a book from a male's POV in a YA. And both characte... ...more
Accidentally pushing someone into the arms is bad when you fall for them, but it's all your fault. I loved the TV references of Arrow, because yes, like Kate I will always ship #Olicity

This was so beautiful! It was exactly what I wanted- easy to read, great characters, swoon-worthy guy and, of course, all the TVD and fangirl references. Note to self: look for more works by Cindi Madsen.

ACTUAL RATING: 4.5 STARS
Kate has had a crush on her school's star football player, Mick, for years. Her big goal for her senior year is to go to prom with him. The problem? Kate has never so much as had a conversation with Mick because she turns into a pile of goo whenever he comes too close. Aft... ...more
Flirty and fun. That is how I describe this book. Cooper I loved watching him fall for the girl and fight with it because he doesn’t think he is what she wants based on their agreement. He goes from surly at times to sweet and adorable.
Kate is tres adorbs. she is the one you just find to cute. S... ...more
Swoon-tastic, adorable and delicious! I flew through this book faster than Cooper and Kate could have ever rowed. I mean that in the best way possible. It has been a long time where I was able (and wanted) to not put a book down for a second. I started Operation Prom Date on a Friday night and fi... ...more

Operation Prom Date (Tactics in Flirting #1) by Cindi Madsen was such a delightful lighthearted YA book. Kate, the main character, was likable, fun, and very relatable. I especially enjoyed all the pop culture references... ...more
kate hamilton is my kind of girl. she gets 'ships and otps and lives for the love story. or the relationship story. so it's amusing to watch her navigate relationship drama without realizing what she's doing. of course, when you're the eye of the storm, you probably have no idea what's swirling a... ...more
I'm not usually a YA reader, but I have recently read one of this authors books and loved it and decided to give this one a try. I've been on a roll of reading some pretty heavy, angsty books lately and this was just what I needed. A breath of fresh air.
This book has all the makings of a great te... ...more
