Blurb:
I can explain.
Kind of.
I realize the wig and makeup donโ€™t help my case, but thatโ€™s not the point.
The point is, Sebastian came at me first.
Heโ€™s the one who started this war, but Iโ€™m the one who finished it.
Iโ€™m not even sorry about it.
Fine. Maybe I am. A little.
Thatโ€™s the only explanation as to why I just agreed to play his fake girlfriend so heโ€”weโ€”can win a million dollars in the hottest reality show contest ever filmed on campus.
Donโ€™t get it wrong though, Sebastian and I may look like we love each other, but everyone knows reality TV is nothing but scripted lies and staged kisses.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 3.5 Stars

Subscriber Wars is a clever take on the enemies-to-lovers trope between two college students who are social media stars. A prank war between Sebastian and Valentina really made their popularity skyrocket, but when things went too far and they stopped talking, their videos stopped as well, and Sebastian’s success started to wane. So he asks Valentina to pretend that they are dating for a reality TV competition to propel him back into the spotlight.

I liked this story, but I felt like I was missing something important. The story starts in the middle of things, and I kept thinking that I was missing pieces of the backstory. The story unfolds between flashbacks of the past and the current day, and they eventually connect in the middle after a shocking twist of events.

There is a great chemistry between Sebastian and Vee, and a slow burn between them crossing the line from fake to real. But I just couldn’t get past feeling like I was missing pieces of the puzzle when reading this story.

If you are a fan of Kristy Marie’s Commander In Briefs series, there are appearances by some of those characters, which was fun.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

About the Author:

A self-proclaimed reader enthusiast, Kristy started her writing journey back in 2009, reading and writing when her daughter was napping. Establishing her place in Corporate America (because something had to pay the bills), writing became her dirty, late-night secret.

After eight long years, she released her debut novel, Commander. It was a long road, but she can honestly say, the road less traveled had the most beautiful sights.

The only thing Kristy Marie loves as much as reading and writing is sports! Especially those that require muscles and a nice ass. Her favorite is, and always will be, baseball. She’s such a fan, that she even married her small town’s high school’s centerfielder where they still live with their three badass kids.
