When Caleb Gray heads to the Texas coast to mentally prepare for a future he isn’t sure he wants, the last person he expects to see is Catie Dixon. Yeah, their mothers have been planning their wedding since they were born, but he and Catie are most definitely not friends. He can’t see her as anything but the annoying kid who followed him everywhere. Except, it’s really bothering him that everyone is staring at her in that bikini…

Catie got over her crush on Caleb ages ago. So why can’t she see past his ripped body or how unsettled he seems? She’s got her own problems, though. Her future has been set for years and now she’s dreaming of pulling the plug. A week at their families’ beach house is just what she needs to pull herself together, and she has no intention of letting Caleb back into her heart...which would be a whole lot easier if he’d put on a shirt.

But a forced week of togetherness full of beach parties, waterslide mishaps, bonfires, and roller coasters sparks more than an understanding. What do you do when the person standing in the way of your future is the one person you grew up hating...but now don’t?

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains summer thunderstorms on the beach, an, er...awkward waterslide incident, and an infuriatingly hot boy who you'll no longer be able to ignore.

I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher via NetGalley. This in no way impacted on my view.

This book was such a quick read, and I found myself unable to put it down - it was good I didn't really have anything planned for the day, otherwise I don't know what I would've done. In Stuck With ...more

This was a cute story. I do enjoy a nice contemporary romance and Caleb and Catie were fun characters. I liked their back and forth, the way they both had crushes on each other but didn't want to say anything because they've known each other forever. They also both want different futures than the on ...more

Stuck with you is the first book that I've read by Christina Mandelski, but it certainly won't be my last. This story was so sweet, romantic, and heartfelt. It had all of the elements that I look for in a young adult contemporary romance!

I would like to thank Entangled Crush and the Netgalley website for allowing me to read this book which is the third in the series: "The first kiss hypothesis".

I wasn't sure about Caleb and Catie, but I was really happy with the way things turned out for them.

Caleb and Catie had been in each other's orbits for as long as they could remember. They were childhood friends, who became frenemies in their teens, but it seemed as though both may ...more

Stuck with You by Christina Mandelski is the 3rd book in the First Kiss Hypothesis series, and a great young adult love story.

Clean Contemporary Romance; Young Adult

First Person; dual-POV

Book #3 of The First Kiss Hypothesis series; can be read as a standalone (I haven't read the first two books and had the full experience with this one)

We were born to be together, Catie Dixon, right?


By Janae' April 13, 2020

This book was a mix of romance and comedy. I was smiling the entire time. It shows what can happen when opposites attract. * Small Spoilers ahead* Don't read if you don't want to learn too much about the book:

I loved how secretly they both liked each other in the begging but still hid the fact that ...more

Such a super cute read! I love the romance and the characters. Some things were cheesy and a bit of a cliché but I didn't mind it.

Feel good young adult(spoilerish)

It's not very often a book in this genre really moves me. It's not even a favorite genre of mine yet I find my heart welling with a bittersweet wonder, remembering love in it's new moments. I rarely give five stars, and even this one is more a 4.5. I cannot find a si ...more

Aw Caleb. It's so nice to see him paired off with someone. Finally. Especially with Catie, who I think is indeed, the perfect match for him. I loved this story. It's safe to say that, I think. I've basically followed this series from the very beginning - I reviewed an ARC of the first book - The Fir ...more

A sweet end of summer read!

I enjoyed Caleb and Catie's story--a forced proximity (at a beach house on the gulf coast, the poor dears ;) ), frenemies-to-lovers, unrequited crush story with a dash of figuring out what you want for yourself vs what your pa ...more

This is a cute, light teenage romance. Catie and Caleb have known each other since they were born. Their parents own a business together, where they live in Texas, and are all best friends, so therefor Catie and Caleb have spend tons of time together growing up.
