Any Boy but You (North Pole, Minnesota #1) by Julie Hammerle
Publication Date: February 13, 2017
Publisher: Entangled: Crush
Elena Chestnut has been chatting with an anonymous boy late into the night. It’s a very You’ve Got Mail situation, and she has no idea who he is. He can’t be Oliver Prince, hot-and-bashful son of the family running the rival sporting goods store. Their fancy sales strategies are driving Elena’s family out of business. Elena’s mystery boy has teamed up with her in their latest sales strategy, an augmented reality game, to help her win the grand-prize plane tickets. Money’s so tight Elena’s going to miss senior year spring break with her friends if she can’t win this game.
The girl Oliver's fallen head-over-heels for online had better not be Elena Chestnut. She's his angry, vindictive Latin tutor, the daughter of his dad’s business rival, and the one girl he’d never even think of kissing. She’s definitely not his online crush, because that girl is funny, sweet, and perfect.
When Oliver asks to reveal their names at the Valentine’s Day dance, their IRL relationship will either ruin what they have online, or they’ll discover just how thin the line between love and hate really is.

My review: 4 stars!
I absolutely agree with this statement: "Fans of Gilmore Girls, Pokemon Go & You've Got Mail NEED to read Any Boy But You!" Julie Hammerle was a new author to me, but I adored her writing style and her characters were so fun! This was such an enjoyable read, touching on some more serious family issues, yet somehow still being lighthearted and cute. The online gaming app in the story was especially interesting to me- I think because I spend a lot of time with my 13 year old son play Pokemon Go! A great, clean teen romance!
