Great Story and Characters
Weddings, Crushes and Other Dramas - Emily McKay

Willa’s father- Matt  was marrying Mia who was one of America’s most famous actresses and known as America’s sweetheart. Mia had a son named Finn that would also be with them he was a couple months older than Willa and ready to graduate in five months just like Willa. Finn was hot and Mia felt attracted to him and resented Finn because he was so hot and unattainable. m even though she had a boyfriend named Damien. Willa’s father was a cinematographer. Mia’s mom had died when Mia was eleven and until a couple months ago it had been pretty much just Willa and Matt even if Matt was gone a lot with his job.  Finn felt an inexplicable pull come over him whenever he was near Willa. Finn excited Willa more than her boyfriend Damien did so they stayed away from each other as much as they could. Finn thought he was falling in love with Willa but fighting it every step of the way. Willa’s best friends were Himesh and Mariely since freshman year. Willa was the lead writer for the Senior Seminar - a web series. Damien is the male lead  and horrible as the love interest but Willa doesn’t know what to do about it. Then Willa decides she wants to break up with Damien as he isn’t what she really wants. She goes to Finn for advice and he kisses Willa and it is her very first kiss. They are now staying at home while their parents are on their honeymoon for the better part of the  next three weeks. Finn was excited that Willa had kissed him back.

I absolutely loved this story. The plot was absolutely great. I loved the way it was written. Willa going out with Damien to protect her heart. I felt bad the Willa was so scared of loving and being let down as she basically had been all her life.  I felt like i was there with Willa and Finn and everyone else. I loved how Mariely pointed out to Willa about why she went out with Damien and made Willa reexamine why she did the things she had. I can’t think of anything i didn’t like about this YA story. It was the best one I had read in a long time and my new favorite. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I highly recommend

Blog Tour w/Review - HOW WILLA GOT HER GROOVE BACK
 
 
How Willa Got Her Groove Back
by Emily McKay
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Romance
Series: Creative HeArts #2, companion series
Publication: February 25th, 2016
 
 
When your life feels like a bad movie, rewrite the script.

When Willa Schofer's father comes home from a business trip with an über-famous new fiancée, Willa's senior year blows up in paparazzi-fueled flames. Overnight, she has a new house, a new car, and a new soon-to-be stepbrother--the unbelievably hot, unbelievably arrogant, Finn McCain. Thank god he's constantly pushing her buttons, or she might do something irresponsible. Like fall for the jerk.

Just when Willa's decided to avoid him for, oh, ever, Finn lands in the center of her senior project team. Seriously--how hard is it to shake a guy? At least her work on the project snagged the attention of the (second) hottest guy in school. He might only be into her because of her famous stepmom, and he's not quite as exciting as a certain annoying housemate, but at least she's allowed to crush on the guy.

Because crushing on your annoying stepbrother? So not cool.

How Willa Got Her Groove Back (Creative HeArts)How Willa Got Her Groove Back by Emily McKay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book # 2 in the Creative HeArts series. It can be read as a standalone novel. This book and the others will make more sense and give more reader enjoyment and understanding, should you choose to read them in the order intended.

Willa gets her father back only to find out he has been secretly dating a starlet. Then he is getting married? And she gets a lying hottie for a stepbrother to go with it.

Willa cannot decide if she is happy for her dad, or bummed out that everything is changing in her life and not a single thing is for her! Now she has two boys attention and she is not sure she wants it. What is a girl to do?

Senior year is supposed to go smoothly, right? Well Willa has so much going on in a book just full of surprises and twists on every corner. I think this was a great part of the series and cannot wait for the next book.

Emily McKay is a life-long fan of books, pop-culture and anything geeky. She has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and baking cookies. When she’s not kicking-ass and scooping cookie dough, she’s watching videos from Screen Junkies (her favorite Youtube channel) or Pemberly Digital or Classic Alice. Okay, she has a Youtube problem! She’s seeking help. Really. Though, she may also have a slight problem with procrastination.

When the internet is down and there are no chocolate chips in the house, she does write books – everything from Harlequin romance novels to post-apocalyptic YA. Though her interests may appear broad, the common denominators are swoony heroes and snarky humor.

Review


I absolutely adored this book.


I love Willa.  She’s intelligent and doesn’t know how to adjust to what her new life is going to be. She thought she shared everything with her father, but this new surprise shows just how much she doesn’t know. My heart broke for her when this news is just sprung on her. She deals with it well enough considering the level of famous her dad’s fiancee is.


Finn is totally hot, but maybe not all what he seems to be.  He hides behind his mask, and you never know if what he’s doing is real or for show.  He has so many walls up it’ll be hard to tear them down.  There are definitely sweet moments, but then he acts like a selfish punk, and you get frustrated again.


I love the way these two interact with each other. They fight attraction, and throw words back and forth.


And what Finn does for Willa….. swoon!


This is a great series, and I can’t wait to read more about these students in Austin.
