The Blurb:

Alexis Wyndham isn’t quite sure what to think about her “friendship” with star quarterback, Brett Pederson. Sure, he has more intelligence than the entire football team combined. Not to mention that fact he’s a great kisser. When he asks her to help him with his college admission essays, she isn’t sure if he’s doing it to spend more time with her or if he’s just using her for her brains. But after her nemesis, Summer Hoyt, makes it clear she’s not finished chasing after Brett, Alexis begins realize how hard she’s fallen for Brett. Now the war is on, and the head cheerleader will find out why she should never take on a Queen B*.

My Review:

Sweet, fun, and enjoyable, this is “Grease” for the 21st century.

Lexie, exposé blogger of Eastline High, is trying to be “friends” with Brett, the hunky star quarterback who’s trying to convince her he wants to be something more. When he asks for help with his college essays, and the head cheerleader starts making it clear that Brett is hers, Lexie becomes unsure of Brett’s motivations, and whether he can be trusted.

I loved the first in the Queen B* series (read my review here), and this (the second) book had a lot of the sparks and freshness of the first (although this can also be read as a stand-alone novel). There are misunderstandings, insecurities, comedy, intrigue and some unexpectedly dark situations, and the characters are all so well-drawn. A great little highschool romance.
