Review ~ Perfectly Oblivious

Cameron Bates (Cam) could have almost any girl at Franklin High School…except for the one he wants. Unfortunately Bebe seems to be immune to his flirty charm and good looks, which means one of two things: a) she’s completely oblivious to how he feels, or b) she’s just not into him. If that’s the case, declaring his love would be disastrous for their friendship. 

Bianca Barnes (Bebe) has a huge problem: the universe hates her. Every time she admits feelings for a boy, he ends up falling for her sweet, popular, and beautiful sister Beth. To avoid a broken heart, Bebe has sworn herself to secrecy. Nobody can know how she feels about Cam…Ever! 

Neither person wants to confess their feelings, but the universe has its own plan. Out of the blue, Bebe is courted by a secret admirer. Cam has to step up his game and Bebe has to make a choice. Play it safe and accept the affections of her mystery man or challenge fate and take a chance on the boy she loves. 

Content Description: This is a stand-alone YA contemporary romance with companion novels to follow. It contains minor language, innuendo, crude humor and steamy tension but is generally very clean. No sex. Recommended for ages 12 and up. 

Jewelz Review~
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It's a delightful YA that sucks you in right from the start - I'll admit I stayed up late and read it through in one sitting. Fortunately, I was on vacation so I could get away with it :) 

Daniels alternates between Bebe and Cam's POV so you get all the inner workings of how this relationship develops. I quickly and easily fell in love with both Bebe and Cam. Of course, I couldn't help but get frustrated with their inabilities to admit their feelings for each other, but that's how things often are in high school relationships. And there is that very real fear of damaging an amazing friendship by trying to move to a romantic relationship.

Beth is an amazingly wonderful sister to Bebe. While they are so close in age, Beth has that "older sister" vibe going where she seems to have more experience and is willing to patiently guide her sister through the tumultuous waters of high school relationships.

Simply put, this was a delight to read and I look forward to more from Robin Daniels
