*thanks so much to Ms Oram for providing a ecopy in exchange for an honest review!!*
Summary:  When Avery Shaw’s heart is shattered by her life-long best friend, she chooses to deal with it the only way she knows how—scientifically.

The state science fair is coming up and Avery decides to use her broken heart as the topic of her experiment. She’s going to find the cure. By forcing herself to experience the seven stages of grief through a series of social tests, she believes she will be able to get over Aiden Kennedy and make herself ready to love again. But she can’t do this experiment alone, and her partner (ex partner!) is the one who broke her heart.

Avery finds the solution to her troubles in the form of Aiden’s older brother Grayson. The gorgeous womanizer is about to be kicked off the school basketball team for failing physics. He’s in need of a good tutor and some serious extra credit. But when Avery recruits the lovable Grayson to be her “objective outside observer,” she gets a whole lot more than she bargained for, because Grayson has a theory of his own: Avery doesn’t need to grieve. She needs to live. And if there’s one thing Grayson Kennedy is good at, it’s living life to the fullest.


Too freaking adorable. Let’s do a bit of ranting here, shall we? After a long hard week of 13 & 17 year olds in love, I come home to this. The perfect fun, flirty, light, adorable read. Did I mention how perfect this was.
There were moment (to which my family can attest) that I laughed so hard I almost peed myself, wanted to throw the kindle at the wall or into a fire. Maybe even melt a bit. Or a lot. Okay, I melted a lot. I love Grayson. He is mine. He is…something special. Even if it took one of the most awkward situation EVER for him to think of her as anything other than a non-related little sister. She’s the geeky science nerd and Grayson is the oh so  cool senior who has had the whole school as his playing field.

“I’ve got news for you, Aves. When a guy says he wants to take you out in the name of science, he’s totally full of it. He really just wants to take you out.”

“But you’ve taken me out like a million times for the experiment. You kissed me once in the name of science.


And to think all this happened because Aiden is a complete and total jerk face who I would like to kick in the face with a soccer ball. I rather dislike him and his….catty….girlfriend.
Let’s get back to the good stuff: Grayson
He is as I mentioned before, the ultra jock. But he’s not stupid….necessarily. He’s good at social science. It was adorable how he helped her with forgetting her hopeless crush on her brother…yeah..then somewhere in between he fell in love with her. And then she realized that maybe (wayyy towards the end) that she might like him too. Then of course they were stupid idiots who just cannot look each other in the eye. Avery is totally innocent. Almost. There was that one incident at the beginning of the book….
