It’s hate at first sight…

Nik Gustafsson has a secret: He’s not really Nik Gustafsson.

]He’s not a spy. He’s not crazy.

He’s just the son and heir to one of the most important families in Europe—one where duty always comes first. And his posh, too-public life is suffocating him. So when he gets the chance to attend boarding school in America, pretending to be an average exchange student is too big of a temptation to pass up.

Then he literally runs into Amber on campus. And she hates him at first sight.

It’s kind of exhilarating to be hated for who he is, not for his family name or his wealth. Maybe if he turns up the charm and turns down the aloof mask he habitually wears, he can win her over. Even though a bad past experience has made her swear off dating this year.

But the more he gets to know her, the more uncomfortable he is keeping things from her.
Because Nik Gustafsson has a secret. And it’s a big one.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a hot boy who's the strong and silent type, a studious girl who refuses to believe in fairy-tale romance, and one epic secret that could be disastrous if it comes to light.


I always love Sara Hantz books and this is no exception!–Amanda Ashby, author of Fairy Bad Day

“A lot of young adult romances have featured an undercover princess, but this turns that story on its head. Very cute read! Lots of fun!–Diana Rodriguez Wallach, author of Proof of Lies

“I really enjoy secret identity books. Throw in some high school angst, and what's not to love?–Emily May, author of The Earl’s Dilemma

This book was so stinking cute! I love the royalty falling for a commoner trope. It’s so unrealistic that when it does happen in real life, I can’t help but swoon.” –Moriah, A Leisure Moment

“Overall, this was a very entertaining and fast read. If you’re in the mood for a very cute (royalty) romance, pick this one up.–Cristina, My Tiny Obsessions

The chemistry of the two is so cute! Most of all because Nik and his sincereness about wanting to blend in and be normal, it is so cute!. Maybe because I can quite relate to him about some of his questions when he first settled in America (e.g. Why do American people only use fork when eating? lol but I'm get used to it now so).” –Throne of Readers

“This was a super cute and super adorable, quick read about a fantasy I’m sure many girls / women have had all their lives, after all, who doesn’t want a prince charming? Sara Hantz did a wonderful job transporting us to this private school where it seems even royalty attends.–Catherine De Los Santos, Addicted to Books

“This is a cute story that does everything you expect from the blurb.” –Bobbie Killip, Escape Into Words

The story is sweet and romantic and one of the reasons that I recommend these books to my students is the appropriate amount of romance.The lack of ridiculous sexual content is perfect for a younger student to read and as a mom, I would let my daughter read this book! Cute and fun!” –Sarah Bittel, Educator at Canisteo-Greenwood CSD

“Sparks fly between Nik and Amber, and once they get over their judgy hang-ups, the chemistry between the two of them is really quite sweet. They develop this wonderful friendship, and when it slides into something more, it happens so naturally, it doesn’t feel forced.” –Eva Scalzo, Definitely, Possibly, Maybe

When Amber runs into Nik Gustafsson she doesn't like him at all. He just rubs her the wrong way. But Nik is not really who he says he is. He's an undercover prince from Europe. This book was really fun watching Nik lose his uptight default character was really something. All he wanted was to be love ...more

Awkward beginnings and a hate-to love friendship that made me smile.

I really did enjoy reading this book.
This may sound weird but I felt like I was reading more a script for a movie than a book, I am saying it in the sense that this book was that good. As I read I had a whole movie playing in my head, Like how I imagine Nik's body guard mopping the floor ...more

About the author

Sara Hantz

Sara Hantz has been a prolific reader all her life, but it wasn't until she was an adult that she got the writing bug. She writes contemporary adult and young adult fiction and her debut book The Second Virginity of Suzy Green made the prestigious list 'New York Public Library Books for the Teen Age'. Sara lectured for many years before deciding to devote more time to her writing and working in the family hospitality business. She has two grown-up children and when not writing, working, or online with her friends, she spends more time than most people she knows watching TV - in fact if TV watching was an Olympic sport she'd win gold.
