Operation Prom Date (Tactics in Dating #1)
by Cindi Madsen
Publication Date: March 13, 2017
Publisher: Entangled Teen Crush
Kate ships tons of fictional couples, but IRL her OTP is her and Mick, the hot quarterback she’s crushed on since, like, forever. With only one semester left of senior year, it’s now or never if she wants to land him in time for prom. Since she’s flirtationally challenged, she enlists Cooper Callihan, the guy who turned popular seemingly overnight but who used to be a good friend.
Cooper lives and breathes rowing, but his partner just broke his wrist. When he remembers Kate’s good with a set of oars, he strikes a deal: help him train, and he’ll make sure her crush notices her. Only he didn’t know how addicting spending time with her would be. Or how the more successful the Operation is, the more jealousy he experiences.
The mission has been set. The troops have their marching orders. But what if the target is the wrong guy all along?

First thing I saw about the book was the author's name. In the past I have loved her books, so I was ready to read this one too and was hoping it will be as good as the others. Read on to know what I think about the book!
I read YA contemporary romance when I need something which would be light and fun. This one just hit the spot with its slight humour and squealing moments. I loved the protagonists. They are so much fun with their antics in their quest of getting Kate paired with the quarterback. They are so sweet and cute!
Kate and Cooper are both smart, witty and add lots of character to the story. Without them, there wouldn't be a good book to enjoy. Kate seems guileless inspite of her plan and I loved her attempts to snag his attention while Cooper add the much needed romance intrigue as they fall in love with each slowly while their attention is focused on something else.
The romance part was nicely done and I was relieved that it didn't much teenage angst. One thing I really love about YA romance is the light and fluffy and floating happy sensation I have when I read a good book. The author delivered again for me except for one small detail. It felt a bit slow at certain parts. It could have speeded up a bit.
All in all, it was a right good fluffy light romance with feel good vibes.
I received a copy for reviewing purposes.

She sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier.
