Crush du Jour - Micol Ostow

-"right now I think I've got
more than enough on my

Summary (from the back of the book):

When a girl bites off more than she can chew. . .

Laine barely has enough time for herself, much less for romance. But she's always hungry for more projects - so she signs up to teach a cooking class at her local community center. As it turns out, the guy co-teaching the class with her, Seth, is not just cute, but downright delicious! When Seth offers her a waitressing job at his family's restaurant, Hype, Laine can't resist.

Just as Seth finally warms up to Laine, she finds out that Callie, another waitress at Hype, is cooking up a plan to steal Seth for herself. But tensions really reach their boiling point when Laine's restaurant critic mother writes a scathing review of Hype! Will Laine have to put love on the back burner again?


Have I ever told you how much I love the Simon Romantic Comedy series? They're amazing when you're looking for a quick read that's still written excellent.

Micol Ostow writes so that you feel what the character's feeling. When Laine does something embarresing in front of Seth (which you know will happen eventually), you feel embarresed. I actually started blushing one of the times!

The writing was really good, and I could really connect with all the characters, not just Laine.

if you're looking for a light romance read, then Crush du Jour is the book for you.

I love Micol Ostow's books. Another good one is Popular Vote which just came out recently in paperback. Also, she's got a series of books coming out within the year that look really good. The first one's called Golden Girl.

Great Review!! I love your blog!
