Goodreads Summary:
When Harry Met Sally for YA romance readers. This opposites-attract love story is perfect for fans of Huntley Fitzpatrick, Stephanie Perkins, and Jenny Han.

June wants high school to end and real life to begin. Oliver is soaking up senior year’s glory days. They could have coasted through high school, knowing about—but not really knowing—each other.

Except that their moms have arranged for Oliver to drive June to school. Every. Single. Day.

Suddenly these two opposites are fighting about music, life . . . pretty much everything. But love is unpredictable. When promises—and hearts—get broken, Oliver and June must figure out what really matters. And then fight for it.

 

Review

I'm always on the look out for fun and cutesy contemporary reads so when I heard Shuffle, Repeat has just that I had to pick up a copy. The story definitely had the fun factor down but it was also a little slow sometimes.

The high school vibe was very present in Shuffle, Repeat. There was all sorts of drama and outrage one would associate with teenagers. While I think they were honest portrayals, those parts of the plot bogged down the story. Sure they showed the two sides to every story but personally I felt they were unnecessary and didn't contribute much to the overall plot.

June was a very no nonsense type of gal. I loved her quick reactions. She wasn't one to drag things out and that earned her an A in my books. Her romantic hesitations were understandable and I really loved seeing her growth as she became increasingly aware of what she wanted. June does screw up but she was also quick with fixing all her mistakes. Seeing her and Oliver together made me a happy gal!

The silly humour was my favourite part about Shuffle, Repeat. June was a very sarcastic person but coupled with the retorts Oliver and her friends would give her in return, they made the story charming and fun. I delighted in seeing all of their exchanges.

Even though I thought the storyline could've been more tightly packed I really enjoyed Shuffle Repeat. The humour was spot-on and the romance was just enough to swoon over. I wish somebody would create a playlist with me ;)

  1. I remember my frustration with When Harry Met Sally so if this is anything like that movie, I might just chuck the book out. Lol.

    I'm glad the slowness didn't deter you, though.
