New Release Review! GUTTER GIRL by Lynn Rush and Kelly Anne Blount (Twin River High #1)

Gutter Girl blog tour banner

Gutter Girl
by Lynn Rush and Kelly Anne Blount
Publication Date:  May 10, 2021
Publisher:  Entangled Teen

Star football player Jace Rovers has a secret. And not just any secret—a shocking secret… He writes romance. The kind with swords. And dresses. And kissing. 

Nobody knows. Not the other kids at Twin River High. Not his overbearing parents. And certainly not the millions of fans who’ve read his book on the writing platform Scribbles. And that’s the way he plans to keep it.

Except suddenly one of the other football players grabs his notebook in jest and starts reading a kissing scene out loud…and Jace knows he’s busted.

But then McKenna Storm, resident goth girl who avoids the spotlight like a virus, snatches up the notebook and tells everyone she’s the author. And lucky for Jace, she later agrees to continue the ruse…for a price.

Heck, he’d give her anything not to reveal his secret. But when they start to fall for each other, he knows he’ll have to keep the biggest secret of all—his darkest character is based on her…

A fun start to a new series!

I can’t honestly say I’ve ever read a YA book where the hero wrote epic fantasy romance, but I am here for it! And the reason why he started (inspired by the stories his little sister asks him to tell her each night) is just so freaking adorable…

I really enjoyed Jace and McKenna’s story. The premise is fairly unique, and though I think I told Jace to ‘fess up to his secret authordom at least as many times as McKenna did (if not more) it was still a fun read. Things do come together a bit easily in the end (and more off page than on, in parts) but still, it was hard to say that these two didn’t deserve their HEA.

Ready for book 2! 😉

Rating: 4 stars / B+

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
