Alicea Springer was Boyfriend Whisperer Enterprises’ top success story. That is, until her dream date, Ty Walker, dumped her a week before prom. Now it’s senior year, and Alicea has taken over the business and given it an upgrade using an automated matchmaking program designed to help her classmates find their perfect match.

Alicea has no interest in using the program herself. She already knows who her perfect match is … Ty. She doesn’t need an app to tell her that (or worse, match her up with someone else). In a moment of weakness, Alicea allows her friends to convince her to give the program a try. To her horror, it matches her with the last boy on earth she’d ever want to date — Darius Groves, the class deadbeat.

When she and Darius are paired up for a class project, Alicea learns there’s more to him than his bad reputation. But the more she spends time with Darius, the more she questions their match. They have so little in common. Why did her program match them?

Can Alicea defy the odds and make a match of her own heart’s desire? Or will the matchmaker remained unmatched?

Top Fav Movies

  1. The Sting: This is my favorite movie of all time. I love everything about it. I won’t say any more than that, because if anyone out there has not yet seen it … Find it. Watch it. Please.

The rest of these are in no particular order. They’re all so different, it would be impossible to rank them:

The Hunger Games (all of them):  One of the rare instances where I felt a movie lived up to—and in the case of the ending, even improved upon—the book. (Well, OK, I didn’t love that they split the third book into two movies, but then again … more movies, more to love!) Also, Jennifer Lawrence.

Bohemian Rhapsody: Maybe this is just top of mind because it’s the last movie I saw in the theater, but, wow. I loved it. Great story, great acting. Also, Queen.

Hoop Dreams: Beautiful. Heartbreaking. I fell in love with those boys.

The Hangover: Hilarious. I laugh every time I watch it. And I’ve watched it a lot. Favorite scene: Mike Tyson.

It’s a Wonderful Life: Christmas is huge at my house, and we watch a LOT of Christmas movies. This is my favorite “oldie.”

Elf: My favorite newer Christmas movie. Zooey Deschanel makes me so happy.

ET: Had to pick something from my childhood. I was the perfect age to see ET when it came out. Magical.

Sharknado (all of them): Hahaha, these only work if you can live tweet while watching, of course. The tweets are the best part. Well, the tweets and the sharks.

Princess Bride: Last but certainly not least, a romance! I do love romance movies as much as I love romance novels, and of course, this is the epitome of the genre.

Linda Budzinski is the author of four young adult novels, all published by Swoon Romance YA: The Boyfriend Whisperer and The Boyfriend Whisperer 2.0, Em & Em, and The Funeral Singer. When she’s not writing, she works in nonprofit communications and outreach. She lives in Northern Virginia with my husband, Joe, and is active with her church’s youth group.
