In this delightfully charming teen spin on You’ve Got Mail, the one guy Bailey Rydell can’t stand is actually the boy of her dreams—she just doesn’t know it yet.Classic movie buff Bailey “Mink” Rydell has spent months crushing on a witty film geek she only knows online by “Alex.” Two coasts separate the teens until Bailey moves in with her dad, who lives in the same California surfing town as her online crush. Faced with doubts (what if he’s a creep in real life—or worse?), Bailey doesn’t tell Alex she’s moved to his hometown. Or that she’s landed a job at the local tourist-trap museum. Or that she’s being heckled daily by the irritatingly hot museum security guard, Porter Roth—a.k.a. her new arch-nemesis. But life is whole lot messier than the movies, especially when Bailey discovers that tricky fine line between hate, love, and whatever-it-is she’s starting to feel for Porter. And as the summer months go by, Bailey must choose whether to cling to a dreamy online fantasy in Alex or take a risk on an imperfect reality with Porter. The choice is both simpler and more complicated than she realizes, because Porter Roth is hiding a secret of his own: Porter is Alex…Approximately.

"Just a fun romantic read!"
"4.5/5 This was unexpectedly so good I would've finished in a day if I didn't need sleep I loved all the movie talk and how at the beginning of each chapter there is a movie quote that would sort of play into the chapter in someway if you are a movie buff you would absolutely love this one also loved the love interest porter ugh I luv that man It is YA but honestly read more mature sometimes the guy would say something cringe but honestly I let it pass for him lol but as much as I love porter I love our main giri Bailey so much she was written so well and so funny to there romance was definitely so cute This book got deep which I didn't expect but actually the trope is enemies to lovers but not for to longggg this book had the right about of enemie banter which is also a hard thing to pull of I feel so I appreciated that aspect definitely can’t wait to re read "
"Loved this book! Finished it in 2 days. The story was so real and raw. Bailey and Porter’s relationship wasn’t perfect, there were a few small fallouts here and there. Personally for me that made me love it even more."
