I think Crush Entangled has been my go-to book publishers for super, light, almost no depth teensy romance. haha. Just One of the Boys is one of the latest that they have. From the title, I already know that it will be a cliche but I can’t help myself. I am a sucker even if I know that there’s really nothing much to read.
Just One of the Boys is your typical girl dressing up a boy teen romance. It is especially is all over Korean and Japanese drama and manga. The concept is nothing new but I still finished the book anyways. The story is about Alice who’s so crazy about hockey, she took the role of his twin brother who just recently scored a spot to play for the Chicago Falcons. Of course, she fell in love with the jerk-but-soft leader of the team.
I admit there are a lot of loopholes in the book like how the hell did the hockey guys not realized that Alice is impersonating his brother when the real Alexander is doing theater with a broken leg within the same school. Maybe the school is really, really, really wide but i doubt. But I did not have much expectations so it’s okay. haha.
Also, there were some references of Korean drama so I think the authors were trying to reflect Korean drama arcs in the story. The story is a popular theme in K-dramas but as an avid k-drama fan, I think the book lacks in comparison of the best k-dramas out there. It might not be a fair comparison but don’t take it to heart. This is just my opinion.
The book”s pretty much a quick read. Good to read for a past time still but will not really stick out amongst all the books you’re reading.
