**Thank you to Entangled Teen for allowing me to read this in exchange for an honest review!**
Before I start off my review, I just want to tell you that you seriously need to check out Entangled's Crush line, because the books are literally so swoon-worthy. They're just such cute contemporary reads that are perfect if you're in a reading slump! I've read almost all of the ones that have been released so far, and I've LOVED every one.
Not Okay Cupid follows Hazel who recently found out that her boyfriend was cheating on her with none other than her best friend. Mind you, this happened very early on and I was just sitting there feeling so bad for Hazel wondering how her best friend and boyfriend could possibly do this to her.
She immediately gets very upset and doesn't know how to handle the situation, so her best friend's brother, Felix, comes to the rescue. He tells the school that the two of them are dating now, and soon enough, they get everyone to believe it. However, before long, it might not be all for show anymore.
I LOVED THIS BOOK. I don't know why, but there's just something about light-hearted contemporaries that make me incredibly happy. I adored Felix so much. He was just so hilarious and big-headed but he was also very sweet deep down and would do anything to make sure that Hazel was okay. It's very possible that he has cared about Hazel longer than he'd ever even admit to himself.
Hazel was also a great character. I felt so incredibly bad for her that her boyfriend was cheating on her best friend though! What kind of best friend did she have? The best friend just kept claiming that she couldn't help her feelings which just left Hazel to be completely alone.
One of my favorite things about this book was the dual POV. The reader gets to get inside both Hazel and Felix's mind, which was pretty awesome. It was great because you could read about them slowly falling for each other yet they never admitted it to one another till later on. I know that I'm definitely going to check out more by Kling in the future and until then I highly suggest you give this one a read!
