Blog Tour and Review: Operation Prom Date by Cindi Madsen

Operation Prom Date (Tactics in Dating #1)
by Cindi Madsen
Publication Date: March 13, 2017

Publisher: Entangled Teen Crush

Kate ships tons of fictional couples, but IRL her OTP is her and Mick, the hot quarterback she’s crushed on since, like, forever. With only one semester left of senior year, it’s now or never if she wants to land him in time for prom. Since she’s flirtationally challenged, she enlists Cooper Callihan, the guy who turned popular seemingly overnight but who used to be a good friend.

Cooper lives and breathes rowing, but his partner just broke his wrist. When he remembers Kate’s good with a set of oars, he strikes a deal: help him train, and he’ll make sure her crush notices her. Only he didn’t know how addicting spending time with her would be. Or how the more successful the Operation is, the more jealousy he experiences.

The mission has been set. The troops have their marching orders. But what if the target is the wrong guy all along?

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains stargazing, accidental swimming, and poker swindling. This kissing practice will melt your ereader…and give you a new couple to ship.   

My review: 5 stars!
Loved this one! So quirky and sweet and fun! The chemistry between Cooper and Kate was PERFECT and I think fans of YA will tear through this as fast as I did. I can't wait to read more from Cindi Madsen- her writing style is so enjoyable.

The wood creaked underneath us as Kate continued to swing her legs. Must be all that frantic energy buzzing just underneath the surface. Her head tipped to the sky. The moon waned gibbous and put out enough light to cast a pale yellow glow on Kate’s features. “Do you still know all the constellations, and, like, the history of all the stars?”
            She whipped her head toward me. “Liar.”
            “There are billions and billions of stars. You think I know the history of each one?”
            “Is it true that most of the stars we see are dead? Because that’s depressing, and I like to think they’re still up there shining their little butts off.”
            “Light travels at about 300,000 kilometers a second, which is crazy fast, but stars are so far away that even light from the closest stars takes years to get to us.”
            She frowned at me. “So you’re saying they’re dead instead of letting me believe my happier version?”
            “I’m giving you facts.”
            “Fine,” she said, her voice making it clear she was all putout about it. “I’ll allow it.”
            “You’ll allow facts?” Before I got way off topic and fell into a lecture about how facts were facts, even if you didn’t want them to be, I shifted back to the subject at hand. “Don’t go getting all sad. I wasn’t finished. Stars have crazy long lifespans, and depending on size, we’re talking high millions to trillions of years. So, no, the answer to your question is that despite popular opinion—which is not the same as proven facts—it’s not true. Some of the stars we’re seeing might be dead, but most of them—to borrow your phrase—are still shining their little butts off.”
            “I thought you didn’t know their history.”
            Part of me felt like growling in exasperation, and the other part of me just wanted to throw my arms around her and hug her. All of my perfume sniffing must’ve killed a few brain cells.
            “Glad we cleared that up.” She took a swig of her soda and then set the can down on the dock with a clank. “Now, tell me the constellations, because I know you know them. Do you still have that app?”
            “I have a better one.”
            “Well, whip it out, Galileo.”
            “Okay, okay. But you might want to be careful about instructing guys to ‘whip it out.’ Just saying.”
            She gasped and shoved me. I chuckled and righted myself, then set my empty soda can next 

to hers. I opened my stargazer app and lined it up so the constellations would show on the screen.
