    1. (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)“I don’t want a boyfriend. I want the right boyfriend.”This was a YA contemporary romance story, about a good girl, and a bad boy.Avery was very studious, and liked to do the right thing. She worked hard, and even helped other people, but hadn’t had much time for partying or a boyfriend, and although that wasn’t going to change overnight, she wanted to at least get [...]

    3. Rachel Hawthorne has always been my go to author for whenever I want a sweet and fun romance that is just perfect for anytime of the year. When I saw that she had a companion novel to the Boyfriend League I just knew I needed to read it.And honestly, I got everything I was looking for in this simple, sweet read that wasn't only a lot of fun, but also had the right amount of realness and romance that made me come back for more. In fact, it was really hard to put down. I truly loved Fletcher and A [...]


    4. Trouble from the Start was a very cliché YA contemporary high school romance, but it was still a cute and light read.I've been in a reading slump for a while, and pegged it down to reading too much fantasy lately. So I went to the library with my best friend, and told her to pick out some random contemporary reads for me. That's how I ended up with this book in my hands. I started reading it that night and finished it the next day. Avery is a very smart girl with a bright future ahead of her. H [...]


    5. Probably 4.5 stars! Avery and Fletcher are from two different worlds – She’s straight A’s and college and a family that loves her and he’s… well, he’s not. He’s the guy at school that everyone knows based on reputation. A new girl every weekend and not a care in the world as far as grades go. But when their paths unexpectedly cross, Avery learns you can’t judge a person based on what you hear about them, and maybe Fletcher can teach her something about following her own dreams in [...]


    6. Loved the story, the characters, and the messages. Avery is a strong, self-respecting young woman who learns the importance of not judging a book by its cover. I'm a serious fan of Avery and Fletcher right now, and it was great to see Avery's parents actually be wonderful examples of what parents should be like.


    7. This book was so cute, the characters matched really well together. Some parts where would be really cringey but where so cute in a book. I recommend it if you want just a cute high school romance who seem to be complete opposites on the outside.


    8. This book was a clichéd story and it was a predictable story about a good girl falling in love with a bad boy and all, but overall, it was pretty enjoyable. Full review to come.


    9. The review was originally posted on Andi's ABCsI have been a Rachel Hawthorne fan for a long time. Actually when I first got big into reading 4 years ago Rachel’s books Love on the Lifts, Thrill Ride and Labor of Love were 3 of my favorites. She just has a way about her writing that makes you smile and feel good about life. So when I saw she was finally coming out with a new book I was beyond thrilled. I knew it was what I had been waiting for for a long time. And I can say it lived up to ever [...]


    10. I think my options are too similar that I long for something fluffy to read. Behold, I actually have Rachel Hawthorne book tucked in my e-reader waiting to be read. There was never a time that I didn’t enjoy her books. They weren’t mind blowing in any way, but for some who occasionally likes to read light stuff, Trouble from the Start sure covered those aspects.Ms. Hawthorne books have the right blend, far from perfect but her stories are neither too fluffy or too angsty. Just the right amou [...]


    11. I really liked Trouble from the Start! I thought it was going to be the typical good girl falls for bad boy but it wasn't. Avery, while yes being the brainy good girl, she was funny, strong and didn't wallow when the bad guy didn't return her affections. If he said no he's not interested then she went on with her life, she hung out with her friends, worked and even went on dates. She didn't pine after him or started making bad decisions, which I thought was refreshing. And Fletcher wasn't the ty [...]


    12. I was lucky to receive an ARC of Trouble from the Start. LOVED it! Fletcher is a perfect hero - complex, brooding, and mysterious - a tough guy loner. I cried when he stood under the bleachers at graduation. He's a good guy who had some tough breaks. I couldn't help but fall in love with him right along with the heroine. About the heroine, Avery is smart and likeable. Her family was great, too, especially her adorable little brother. It was refreshing to see a protagonist with solid parents.


    13. A sweet, meaningful romance after ages!Avery is a responsible, intelligent girl. She's respectful to her parents and takes care of her little brother (and her pristine reputation).Fletcher is a bad boy with a good heart.At the surface, it seems like they have nothing in common. But they're still perfect for each other. :)The characters were both amazing, sensible, strong. I read the book slowly and soaked every word, every emotion in and wow, this book gave me tingly toes. In love. <3


    14. I love stories of couples from different backgrounds. Avery and Fletcher couldn’t have had more different lives—Read my full review, originally posted on Gone with the Words


    15. very cute story of Avery and Fletcher who start having more interaction before graduation. Fletcher is the bad boy who makes Avery have feelings. They have a rocky romance, and I love her parents.Very cute





    16. I admit, I procrastinated reviewing this When that happens I have a heard time reviewing things so this will be short and to the point.This book follows Avery, who is the good girl: good grades, good plan, good friends. And Fletcher who is basically the opposite but, of course, not everything is always what it seems. After she gets drunk at a party a week before graduation Fletcher ends up giving Avery ride a home and it's basically the first time Avery has noticed Fletcher. Every summer Avery's [...]


    17. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: A quick, easy read that’s perfect for sunshine and beach days.Opening Sentence: “You can’t just stand here, Avery.”The Review:Avery is a straight A student. She’s spent her high school experience either studying or with her best friend, Kendall. When it comes time for senior year, she is looking to experience love before college, but she doesn’t want any old boyfriend, she wants the right boyfriend. So when bad boy Fletcher enter [...]


    18. I am so disappointed in this book. I really liked the other book: The Boyfriend Project. Of course that one had some ups and downs, but not as much as this one.Let's just say that I expected something totally different. I expected a book full of gorgeous Fletcher x Avery action, lots of tough guy actions, lots of swooning. Instead, we got drama, drama, drama, expectations and reputations and a 2 people who just seem to want to deny anything about themselves. I wanted the stuff that was hinted in [...]


    19. 4-1/2 stars.A modified version of this review also appears on Swoony Boys Podcast, along with a fabulous interview with Rachel Hawthorne.I've read a few other books from Rachel Hawthorne but I have to admit that this is my favorite. In fact, it's one of my favorite books this year.Straight-laced daughter of a cop Avery never expects to talk to Fletcher Thomas, let alone fall for him. He's the quintessential bad boy, but when he shows up at her kitchen table, Avery uses her good girl sweetness to [...]


    20. Original review can be found at kristineandterri/23.5 stars**I received an advanced readers copy from HarperTeen via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!**If I had to use one word to describe this book I would have to say cute. I can really see young readers liking this story. Although it was at times predictable and perhaps not so original it still held enough "cute" moments to look past that.There were also some lessons and great teaching moments for young readers in regards [...]


    21. Head over to HEA to find out who Rachel's most influential YA author isatoday/story/happyevFrom Rachel: Latest release: Trouble From the Start is a story about perceptions — the way we tend to judge people without knowing the complete story. Avery is a cop's daughter who is very smart and believes in following the rules. Fletcher is known for getting into trouble, often comes to school bruised and brags that people should see the other guy. Avery thinks he'll end up in prison. Fletcher thinks [...]


    22. The main character and her love interest were so wishy-washy. It's ridiculous. "Oh, let's get together!" "Oh, we should just be friends!""Oh, but I WUV kissing you!""Friends!""Together!""Friends!"*covers ears and starts crying* Please stop. Please. On a serious note, the MC was unrealistic in the sense that she was incredibly dense and the love interest went from being the stereotypical "bad boy" to being completely and totally in loooooove with the studious, unassuming girl. It kept me reading [...]


    23. A little bit of a cliché, but I liked it. Avery is smart and honest and loyal and genuinely good person. Her and her BFF aren't catty bitches and I loved that. Fletcher is a softie wrapped up in a hard chocolate shell. He's sarcastic and it's delightful seeing him snark with Avery. Of course there's a mean back story for him and some overachieving for her, but it was a sweet story with some good swoons. **Huge thanks to Harper Teen and Edelweiss for providing the arc in exchange for an honest r [...]


    24. A light book that turned out to be a godsend because it got me out of a two week slump. I didn't like the supporting characters in this one, so I won't be reading the companion novel based on their story


    25. A well written YA with high school drama at its best. The high school drama was a little too much for me BUT teens will love this one. I really liked the two main characters and how they both found themselves in the book.
