BLOG TOUR AND REVIEW - ADORKABLE BY COOKIE O'GORMAN
Release Date: March 31st 2016
Summary from Goodreads:
Adorkable (ah-dor-kuh-bul): Descriptive term meaning to be equal parts dorky and adorable. For reference, see Sally Spitz.
Seventeen-year-old Sally Spitz is done with dating. Or at least, she's done with the horrible blind dates/hookups/sneak attacks her matchmaking bestie, Hooker, sets her up on. There's only so much one geek girl and Gryffindor supporter can take.
Her solution: she needs a fake boyfriend. And fast.
Enter Becks, soccer phenom, all-around-hottie, and Sally's best friend practically since birth. When Sally asks Becks to be her F.B.F. (fake boyfriend), Becks is only too happy to be used. He'd do anything for Sal--even if that means giving her PDA lessons in his bedroom, saying she's "more than pretty," and expertly kissing her at parties.
The problem: Sally's been in love with Becks all her life--and he's completely clueless.
This book features two best friends, one special edition Yoda snuggie, countless beneath-the-ear kisses and begs the question:

"You're not seriously going to listen to them," I said flatly.
"What else can I do?"
"Becks, beware the dark side."
"What's that supposed to mean?"
"It's a Yoda-ism," I said, "and you know exactly what it means. Becks, have you no shame?"
"Nope," he said, lifting the jersey over his head in one swift pull, causing a mixture of applause, screaming and appreciative sighs.
I shook my head, struggling to keep my eyes north of his jaw line.
"What can I say, Sal?" he said, backing away. "It's like that line from that show Oklahoma. I'm just a guy who can't say no." Flicking his jersey at one of the cheerleaders, he hot footed it out to center field, grinning all the while. He gave a frowning Coach Crenshaw a swat to the backside, and then the team got down to business.
I wrote down Becks's quote, making a side note to include it in my next article, while the girl who'd caught Becks's jersey gripped the shirt to her heart and pretended to faint.
At least, I hoped it was pretend.

“Adorkable (ah-dor-kuh-bul): Descriptive term meaning to be equal parts dorky and adorable. For reference, see Sally Spitz.”
This book in essence was a cliché yet the write did gaver her own spin to the story.
Sally Spitz is a unique young woman who babbles in German when she is upset and carries a secret crush towards her best friend and golden boy of the school Becks.
Becks, the school’s soccer phenomenon and Sally’s best friend has secretly harbored a crush on Sally for years.
You see the problem here? They’re teenagers, of course they don’t just come and spit out their feelings.
Enter Hooker, Sally’s other best friend and resident match maker. Although it might not be her best quality.
That’s why Sally forms a plan to ask Beck’s to pose as her fake boyfriend for a while until Hooker realizes Sally can fend for herself.
A disaster waiting to happen or not? How long until they realize it is no longer a game?
What happens from start to finish is a fun, fast and quirky read that’ll make you laugh, swoon and root for them.
Recommendation for sure if you want a quick escape back into the teenage era.
