Review - The Queen B* and the Homecoming King by Crista McHugh

The Queen B* and the Homecoming King
by Crista McHugh
Series: The Queen B*, #3
Genre: Young Adult
Release Date: December 1, 2015

The Queen B*, Alexis Wyndham, has only three rules when it comes to dating that star quarterback, Brett Pederson:

  1. No obligations to spend every waking moment with each other.
  2. No public displays of affection while at Eastline High.
  3. And absolutely, under no circumstances, will she ever go to the Homecoming dance.

But as her life is completely upended time and time again, she begins to wonder if some rules are meant to be broken.

This is the third book in the Queen B* series and by far my favorite. The first two books have been setting up the relationship between Alexis and Brett and now we get to see how that is going to work out. There was some angst (they are teenagers – angst is a requirement!), there were some laughs, and I really loved watching friendships be tested, new friendships being formed, and seeing Brett have a bad day (or two).

I loved watching most all of the characters evolve – from Lexi being more compassionate, to Brett having his not so perfect moments, to so many of the secondary characters showing different sides to themselves. Once again I just loved Alexis’s friend Richard and enjoyed getting to see more of him in this book. The bit of drama surrounding Richard gave him a nice feature in this story.

There were many story lines going on and at times it got to be a bit overwhelming trying to keep up with everything that was going on. On one hand it created that perfect storm for Lexi, but on the other hand I wish some of the story lines were further developed…and I’m hoping that will be the case in the next book!

As with the first two books in the series, I would recommend this book to any Young Adult romance lover, but would caution based on content for younger YA readers – there’s nothing totally explicit, but there are references that may be inappropriate for a younger audience.

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
