Summary from Goodreads:
When a humiliating picture of Blythe goes viral, she's instantly the target of ridicule at her new school. To salvage her reputation, Blythe teams up with Luke to win the Senior Scramble scavenger hunt. But Luke is an unlikely ally and potentially can't be trusted.
Perhaps it's his Shakespearean witticisms that reel Blythe in despite her better judgment . . . or maybe she just craves the thrill of the game. But as the hunt progresses, their relationship heats up. Soon their madcap mischief spirals out of control. Blythe is faced with arrest and expulsion, among other catastrophes - until Luke shows her what the Scramble (and love) is really about.

7 Clues To Winning You is definetly a book you should turn to if you need a laugh or just feel like reading something light-ish and hilarious. The cover is not a favorite of mine, but I really like how most of the characters are displayed on it. It also gives a fun vibe to it due to the colors.
I have to admit, I couldn't fully connect with the main character but I enjoyed reading in her point of view, even if she did annoy me a couple of times. Luke was really cute and wasn't what he appeared to be; he had a lot of good intentions and was a sweetheart though. My favorite characters were actually a couple of ladies from the place Blythe volunteers at. They just made the book so fun and hilarious to read! They were the reason this book appealed to me so much because of the crazy things they did and said. 
The romance was really intriguing. At first glance, Luke and Blythe couldn't be any more different than they seem but they're actually very similar. You, as a reader, are able to experience and witness them going through several events that change them both as character and develop a connection between them.
The ending was awesome! I admit one of the reasons it was great was because the two ladies were incorporated into it but the romance added was a bonus too. 
I recommend this to anyone looking for a light fun and hilarious read. You're in for a ride full of romance, two old ladies who are hilarious, and lots of character development. Plus, there's a cute guy! (x


  1. Sweet short review! Yeah, I don't think I'm too fond of that cover either, but the story itself really sounds like fun, and honestly, that's exactly what we people need once in a while. Great review!

  2. Awesome review! I've been looking for a light book to read and this seems like a Grinner :D
