What They Say
The Way To Game The Walk of Shame got off to a bit of a slow start, I felt. It took a while to really warm up, but once Evan and Taylor start fake-dating, things pick up the pace a little bit, especially as they just get on so well. Like, so well that you can hardly believe these two people have said barely any words to each other, ever. So well that you just can't fathom that this whole thing wouldn't have happened if Taylor hadn't woken up in Evan's bed the morning after a party, because they were clearly fated to be together. It's intriguing to me that two people who barely speak, and have to be co-erced into fake-dating can get along so well right away, with no awkwardness, but there was no awkwardness between Taylor and Evan.
This was an interesting read, probably not my favourite book ever, but a fairly decent YA novel. I liked that we got to see both Evan and Taylor's points of view, and I appreciated the fact that Taylor had a goal, and wanted to achieve it and I understood how using Evan helped that goal - I got irrationally annoyed when, a few days after the party, Taylor was dropped from sorting out an event from her teacher because she wasn't paying attention, as if the teacher was listening to gossip, it was all a bit out of hand. It just really irritated me, because are teachers REALLY like that? REALLY? But I liked how Taylor handled it, how she drove into the skid and did whatever was necessary to keep her reputation (NOT THAT SHE SHOULD HAVE TO, BUT YA KNOW).
The Way To Game The Walk of Shame was a good little read. I LOVE that we got to see what happened at the party, too. It was like Jenn READ MY MIND, because you always, always, always want to see the scene that was the catalyst for the whole book and it was beautiful. I loved Taylor and Evan and this was such a fun, cute read. And am I the only one who wants a spin-off with Aaron? He seemed SO SWEET.
