Sixteen-year-old Quinn Hardwick’s having a rough summer. Her beloved grandmother has been put into a home, her dad’s gambling addiction has flared back up and now her worst enemy is back in town: Wesley James, former childhood friend—until he ruined her life, that is.

So when Wesley is hired to work with her at Tudor Tymes, a medieval England themed restaurant, the last thing Quinn’s going to do is forgive and forget. She’s determined to remove him from her life and even the score all at once—by getting him fired.

But getting rid of Wesley isn’t as easy as she’d hoped. When Quinn finds herself falling for him, she has to decide what she wants more: to get even, or to just get over it.

When I saw the title, like any other people who came across this book, I was expecting a hate-to-love romance. And fortunately, I wasn't disappointed! This book was super cute and funny, just as expected.

Basically, Quinn and Wesley used to be best-friend. But one day, when Wesley was about to move to another town, he did something that Quinn thought made her parents got a divorce. Since then, Quinn blame Wesley for that fateful day and continue to hate him. Fast forward 5 years, Wesley is back in town, and turns out they have the same summer job! And thus, the rivalry begin. I actually like Quinn, eventhough I think her reason for hating Wesley is kinda silly. She's pretty nice and she will admit when she has done something wrong. And we are both obsessed with everything London! I can definitely relate with her about that. As for Wesley, he seems like a decent guy and I wish there's his POV in this book since I feel like I haven't really know him enough.

What I love most in this book is (obviously) the banter. They bicker and tease each other like an old lady all the time and yet I can't get enough of it! It's just so funny and entertaining and I kinda wish I have someone to hate just so I could bicker like that 😂 And of course, all the banters just make me ship them more. Another thing I love that I haven't mentioned is the setting where Quinn and Wesley works, Tudor Tymes. It's basically part restaurant/part theater and I found that the idea is refreshing. It just sounds so cool and I wish it's a real place here!

In conclusion, Wesley James Ruined My Life is a cute, adorable, and light reads. Not just romance, this book also has a great female friendship. If you're looking for something fun to read in the summer, this is your perfect book!

  1. Great review, Tiffany! This sounds like the perfect beach read - fun and adorable! Glad you liked it! :)

    1. Thanks Giselle! Hope you like it too :)

  2. You totally nailed it! I think that the banter is the best part of this book! It is such a perfect book to add to a summer TBR and I am glad that you enjoyed it as well. :)

    1. Yes! The banter was really funny :D Thanks!

  3. This sounds like such a fun read, the setting is different, and I love good banter in romances, I just read one where the dialogue just felt so flat and it really made the book drag.

    1. It was disappointing indeed when the banter is flat! I think banter is the best part in contemporary xD Hope you enjoy this book, Summer! :)
