Review: Falling For The Wingman by Shannon Stults


When Bentley Erikson’s first crush moves back to town, she believes it’s fate’s way of giving her a second chance at the boy of her dreams: Liam Haynes.

But three years is a long time, and she has no idea what to expect.

Desperate to get it right, Bentley enlists the help of Cooper Bradshaw, her arrogantly charming next-door neighbor who’s in dire need of a ride to school after he totaled his Maserati.

Cooper is as famous for his skills on the soccer field as he is notorious for his one-night stands with college girls. But he also happens to be Liam’s best friend, and he used to be Bentley’s too.

When these three childhood friends reunite, Bentley learns Liam and Cooper are keeping deep, dark secrets, and because of their lies and deceptions, her heart is being torn apart.

Bentley is my new girl crush. She’s smart, funny and wise beyond her years, yet still manages to be innocent and strong. She’s a typical teen in so many ways but in others, she’s extraordinary, like the way she balances all of her extra responsibilities at home with having the highest GPA in her class. Or second highest GPA, there’s no consensus. I absolutely loved her story. I wasn’t a big Liam fan so I was Team Cooper from the beginning. Something about him just drew me in right away.

These characters are so real and true to life, which I adore. If readers can picture sitting down with your character for a cup of coffee and good conversation, then the author is doing everything right. This is a bittersweet story at times but gives us the perfect happy ending for these characters.
