Summary: It’s stupid to fall for your brother’s ex. It’s even worse to enlist another’s help to win the ex over. But Brody is desperate and Hayley, his partner in American Sign Language, is more than willing to lend him a few tips.

She’s the school’s matchmaker,’ and with her bizarre and positive personality, Brody finds her easy to talk to, even about the most awkward situations. Hayley’s tips seem to be working, but as Brody learns more about his matchmaker, he starts finding reasons to spend time with her, and not the girl he thought he was in love with.

But Hayley isn’t ready to fall for anyone. Labeled the “Funny Fat Friend” within her group, her self image makes it impossible for Brody to share his feelings without Hayley shrugging it off as a joke.

Convincing her Brody can, and did, fall for the “Funny Fat Friend” turns out to be harder than simply falling in love.

My Thoughts: These kind of books are always a hit or miss with me. Reading a book that hasn't gotten much recognition is always a risk. You might like it, you might not.

We are introduced to Brody who has been crushing on his brothers ex for a long time. His brother really messed up with her bad and Brody would love to pick up those pieces and heal her heart.

Until he gets to know another girl named Hayley. A girl who has offered to help him win her.

Yep, that is right. This is told from the male perspective, which is another thing I have a problem with usually.  I liked Brody. He had a nice sense of humor and was sweet at times. I also liked Hayley. She called herself the funny fat friend. She was so sweet and I’m so happy that Brody liked her.

Brody and Hayley get to know one another, and all throughout the story she thinks she isn’t good enough for him. She isn’t up to his “level.” But Brody thinks the opposite. He thinks she’s an awesome cool girl.  I liked the characters getting to know each other. I liked the way they talked and hung out. And I liked that the characters could see past the person’s looks. But who cares if she was a little overweight, that is totally cool and fine. I’m just glad Brody wasn't a jerk!

I liked this one. It was a fun fast read. I’d rate this probably more of a 3.5 though. I didn’t fall in love with it but I liked it enough and thought it was cute.

Overall: Very cute read.

Cover: Like it. Love how they are laying there chillen.

What I’d Give It:
