Sunny Shelly’s Review: Something About You, by J. Nathan

Something About You by J. Nathan is now live!

I’m what you call a god, a superstar, a winner.
Being a professional snowboarder is my purpose in life.
I know exactly how to get what I want and
I’m good at most everything I do.
I’m only at Cranmore University to appease my parents.
But, if I want to graduate, I need to pass physics.
And, since failing is not an option,
Blackmailing a nerd who hates me is my last resort.

I’m what some call a geek, a nerd, a loser.
And I don’t care.
I know who I am.
I know where I come from.
And, I know exactly where I’m going.
That’s why I’m at Cranmore University.
To get my degree and begin my life
Only, that plan gets quickly derailed
Thanks to an unbecoming video
A blackmailing snowboarder
And his ex who’s hell bent on making my life miserable.

They say everyone comes into your life for a reason.
What happens when that person is the opposite of what you want…
But exactly what you need?

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

I binged Something About You on a rainy Friday night while my family watched a Marvel movie. This book was a charming opposites-attract college romance between an athlete failing physics, the nerd he blackmails into tutoring him, and them both learning along the way that what you don’t think you want sometimes turns out to be exactly what you need.

Kason and Shay definitely get off on the wrong foot, and every run-in after that is filled with tension. When Shay gets drunk at a party at Kason’s house and falls asleep in his room, he gets the perfect opportunity to blackmail her into tutoring him. Shay is book smart, but she’s also sassy, fierce, tells it like it is and does not placate Kason. At all. He’s so used to people fawning all over him and falling at his feet — and Shay does not. She intrigues him, and he begins to realize that he feels like the most authentic version of himself when he’s around her.

Poor Shay has had such a difficult life, but she is resilient and determined not to let her past define her future. She is reluctant to trust that Kason genuinely likes her at first — they are opposites in every way, and the nerdy girl never gets the star athlete. And despite Kason’s selfishness and the lies he tells her in the beginning, Shay begins to depend on him in ways she never imagined she could. The love that Kason shows her makes Shay feel wanted for the first time in her life, and he shows a vulnerability around Shay that made me fall fast for this cocky hero.

There are a million reasons why Shay and Kason shouldn’t work as a couple. But they just do, and their story was so charming! I also loved the hints at whatever is happening between Kason’s sister Giselle and best friend Thayer! I’m definitely interested in getting their story!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
