Sixteen-year-old Quinn Hardwick’s having a rough summer. Her beloved grandmother has been put into a home, her dad’s gambling addiction has flared back up and now her worst enemy is back in town: Wesley James, former childhood friend—until he ruined her life, that is.
So when Wesley is hired to work with her at Tudor Tymes, a medieval England themed restaurant, the last thing Quinn’s going to do is forgive and forget. She’s determined to remove him from her life and even the score all at once—by getting him fired.
But getting rid of Wesley isn’t as easy as she’d hoped. When Quinn finds herself falling for him, she has to decide what she wants more: to get even, or to just get over it.
If you’re expecting this book to change your life, you’re probably going to be disappointed but it IS a perfectly, enjoyable summer book and not everything we read needs to revolutionize our lives. I, for one, have been too tired and too overheated lately to read books that will change my life so Wesley James Ruined My Life was the perfect read for me.
Is Quinn Hardwick stubborn as fuck and will you want to shake some sense into her? For SURE but the book also has so many feel-good vibes and part of the fun is when she does realize she is in the wrong. Quinn is stubborn and holds grudges for all the wrong reasons but we can all be stubborn sometimes and I for one am still angry at that person who never gave back my mechanical pencil back in 10th grade. IT WAS A NICE MECHANICAL PENCIL, okay??? 0.7 and everything.
Wesley James is the real winner of the show and is incredibly pure and precious. He does fuck up once or twice but you know what? It’s okay because he is an adorable cinnamon roll.
Wesley James Ruined My Life features some family relationships, a hate-love romance, good friends, and some geeky band goodness so really, it’s ~just~ the read to blow off some summer steam with!

“he is an adorable cinnamon roll” hahaha! I love that! I’ve been all about the light-hearted and low angst books lately so this one may be a good one for me. I do love hate-to-love romances too. lol Great review!
I want to meet the cinnamon roll. You can never have too many cinnamon rolls in your life!
Anyways, this sounds like the super light and cute book that I like to read this time of the year.

Aw, this sounds so cute and fun! I might have to pick this one up around summer (it’s winter here in Australia >_<), I really like the premise even though it's so simple! Thanks for the review. 🙂
