    Kasie is an auto-buy author and I don’t even need to read the synopsis to know I’ll enjoy it.

    I loved Kate and her group of friends. I love her passion for the lake and how she begins to love the podcast, even when she didn’t want to do it in the first time. Alana was a good BFF and her relationship with Kate was so supportive. Of course I loved Diego and even Frank was mildly charming. And the dynamic between them quickly became interesting.

    Plot wise, it was mostly fluffy, but had touches of real life things. There was a brief bit of conflict, but it didn’t last long and the ending chapters were adorable.

    As always, I wanted more more more, but Kasie’s stories are always a perfect palate cleaner for me and this was no exception.

    This book is so beautiful it’s making my head hurt. I just finished the book a minute ago, literally, and I can’t stop grinning because of everything that I just read. This story is wonderful and was narrated in the perfect way. Sometimes a book can have a great concept but the execution may not be up to the par, but when I first read the blurb of this book I will admit I was bit skeptical because of the possibility of a love triangle, and that too between best friends. But now after everything

    This book is so beautiful it’s making my head hurt. I just finished the book a minute ago, literally, and I can’t stop grinning because of everything that I just read. This story is wonderful and was narrated in the perfect way. Sometimes a book can have a great concept but the execution may not be up to the par, but when I first read the blurb of this book I will admit I was bit skeptical because of the possibility of a love triangle, and that too between best friends. But now after everything I just read I wouldn’t change a word. The characters were written very well and each played off the others’ role very well. The writing complemented the story perfectly and I have no words for the joy I’m feeling right now. After finishing the book I turned to the acknowledgements and the first 2 sentences were that this was Kasie West’s book ten and this was the number of books she was hoping she would write and reading this just made me so much happier for reasons I can’t comprehend. It also made me want to read the previous 9 books, then I had to curse life for not giving me the next 9 days free.

    The story follows Kate, Alana, Diego, and Frank. Kate likes to keep to herself, she’s pretty quiet and would rather be doing anything but hosting a podcast. Alana on the other hand is extremely outgoing and happens to have a crush on Diego. And as we all know Kate will fall in love with him. Don’t worry, it’s not a love triangle, and if you were hoping for a love triangle I’m sorry to say you will be disappointed. Frank and Kate’s family have a long term feud going on over some land and the hate seems to have passed down from generation to generation.

    Watching this story progress was captivating, and extremely enjoyable. The story moves on very smoothly and there is no point in which the characters seemed out of place or the story moving too slowly. The relationship between each of the characters is marvelous, especially because we see a majority of it happen right in this book. I loved watching Kate and Alana’s friendship progress through the book, Kate’s relationship with her cousin’s was adorable, and so was Diego’s. Frank plays in quite differently because Kate’s long standing hatred of him which he reciprocates, but they do call a truce and realise that their hatred might be slightly misplaced.

    Now about the podcast, Alana forces Kate to join the podcast class and their teacher picks Kate as one of the hosts, much to her chagrin since all she wanted to do was stand in the sidelines. Kate’s co-host Victoria on the other hand is all too excited to be a host, and eventually her enthusiasm rubs off on Kate. They make and amazing team and once Kate gets the hang of it, the podcast really moves forward and gains a loyal fan following.

    As I have already mentioned the story is amazing, the plot couldn’t have been executed any better, and I look forward to reading more of Kasie West’s writing. I flew through this book in less than a day and I enjoyed every second of it. I give this book 5 stars and it seems to have set me on a contemporary spree. I recommend it to all contemporary lovers who have not read it yet.

    When I read West's books, I always tend to compare them to my favorite book by her, PS I Like You. And so far, none of the KW books I've read were as good as PS I Like You, except this one. Honestly, after finding the other KW books mediocre, I didn't have expectations going into this one. I just wanted something cute, and I knew KW would provide. However, I didn't expect to love it as much as I loved PS I Like You!!!

    - Cute plot

    - Diegodiegodiegoooo

    - Love triangle done right

    - Good female friends

    This book was extremely adorable. A perfect summer read if I do say so myself (even though it isn't summer right now where I live you get what I mean). The writing was simple and it made the book all the more enjoyable.

    This book follows 16 year old Kathryn Bailey who, as an extreme introvert, prefers to not be in the spotlight. She'd much rather spend all her time on the lake in her family's marina. She didn't want to sign up for the podcasting class in her school or even expect her podcasting club theme to be chosen but it happened anyway. Now she's expected to give advice to random callers on air? Impossible. But later, she realises that maybe, just maybe, she might be enjoying this whole podcasting thing after all and goes from a total nobody to one of the most popular people in town. Turns out, she is actually a pretty good advice giver. When an anonymous caller- who everyone has taken to calling 'Looking for Love'- asks for advice about a girl he likes, Kate immediately suspects that the caller is Diego Martinez, the cute boy her best friend Alana is crushing on. As Kate gets to know Diego, both on and off air, she starts to fall for him...hard. Torn between loyalty to her best friend and herself, Kate must decide whether to listen to her head..or her heart.

    As I mentioned earlier, this book was a really fun read. I haven't read any of Kasie West's books before but now I definitely will. I loved the story, the 'plot' and most of all the budding romance. I didn't like the characters as much as I would have but I loved reading about the protagonist's relationship with her family and his much she loved them and cared about them.

    Overall, I feel like I would've loved this more had the characters been written a little better because I didn't really connect with them that well. Other than that, I really enjoyed reading this book and you all definitely will too.

    Kasie West’s 10th book did NOT disappoint. This is now my second favorite, after

    I did something terrible.

    After being disappointed by my last Kasie West book, I claimed that she and I would part ways. Her books didn’t satisfy me as much anymore and I thought it was time to turn to other authors that understood me as a reader a little better.

    It’s only when I noticed this new book from her that I realized how wrong I was to even think about avoiding Kasie West’s future stories. The moment I laid eyes on it, I knew, somehow, that this book and I would click.

    And would you look

    After being disappointed by my last Kasie West book, I claimed that she and I would part ways. Her books didn’t satisfy me as much anymore and I thought it was time to turn to other authors that understood me as a reader a little better.

    It’s only when I noticed this new book from her that I realized how wrong I was to even think about avoiding Kasie West’s future stories. The moment I laid eyes on it, I knew, somehow, that this book and I would click.

    And would you look at that, we totally did. This was exactly what I needed today. After finishing a pretty heavy read, it felt like heaven to pick something light, romantic and utterly fun. While Kasie West may not always get ‘‘me’’ personally, she does get teens in general. She knows what they want to see and what will hold their attention.

    In this story, Kate is forced to co-host a podcast that she didn’t want to be part of to begin with. She also struggles to get over her ex and tries to understand her feelings for another guy on whom it may not be such a good idea for her to crush, seeing that her best friend Alana is smitten with him as well.

    Although I did find the relationship between Kate and Diego adorable, my favourite scenes were between Kate and Alana. I remember complaining in my reviews of other Kasie West books that the heroines’ best friends don’t do much and are basically part of the story only so they can offer support to the heroines, which is not what real friendship looks like. It has to go both ways. Fortunately, it’s as though the author herself saw my comments because this friendship was wonderful in so many ways, and realistic especially.

    This is Kasie West’s 10th book but like she says in her note, definitely not her last. I wish her more success in the future and I love how far she’s come. She’s growing not only as an author, but as a person as well, since she is including more and more diverse characters in her stories, which I’m sure many of us appreciate. I’m so proud of her and I’m genuinely sorry for saying I would stay away from her. I certainly will NOT. You couldn't make me if you tried.

    3.5 stars. This isn't my favorite Kasie West book, but it's still pretty adorable! The story has hints of Sleepless in Seattle, since the guy who likes Kate keeps calling her podcast for advice. It was a cute setup with a range of great characters and a lake setting... basically, a fun summer read.

    However, I never really got that into the story or connected with the characters. I had that problem with By Your Side, too... I still

    those books, but was nowhere near as invested as I was with

    those books, but was nowhere near as invested as I was with other titles by this author (like P.S. I Like You or Love, Life, and the List). I think huge Kasie West fans will still be thrilled with this new addition, though!

    - thank goodness for no girl hate when boys get involved 👏👏

    - even though there was a love triangle, i didnt find it nauseating or cliche, was handled well imo

    - while the characters usually seem more juvenile to me, i found these characters to be a bit more mature

    - the audiobook narrator was GREAT

    - there wasn't anything

    about the book

    - it was very much an easy summer read, but it didnt hold much impact for me

    - all of kasie west's mc's seem to have the same thinking and internal monologue, which is finnnee but it just feels like one character throughout her books

    im actually impressed i managed to enjoy this one, bc lately all of kasie west's stories were going to bust and im just happy it pleasantly surprised me :')

    3 stars!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Kasie west will forever write and publish full length novels in 2 days and i will forever keep reading them
