This is it—Tori Lomax’s senior year.

Her last chance to leave Nelson High without a bucketload of regrets.

Number one priority—get Colt Burgess to fall in love with her. So what if he’s the Raider’s number one playmaker? So what if he’s so far out of her league, the idea of them together would rupture the school’s social order?

She has to try, before it’s too late.

She’s come up with the perfect set of plays. All Colt has to do now is buy into them.

Colt Burgess wants one thing: to play football after high school. But his grades are tanking and his dreams of playing college ball are fading…fast. He shouldn’t waste time on Tori Lomax. However, she was a friend back in middle school, and he can’t really ignore her small request for a favor. How hard can it be to get the guy she’s lusting after to notice her?

He’ll help her out, and then he’ll focus on what’s really important: 

Assuming he can stop thinking about her…

My Thoughts: Gotta Stick To The Plan To Get Yo Man!
     This novel is a sweet high school romance that will have you believing dreams can come true. If you make a plan that is. ;) The dialogue and characters are real but quirky giving you taste of reality with all the feelings of a classic romantic comedy flick. Issues of social status, race, learning disabilities and self esteem are addressed in this novel making great for young adults and up.
     Deciding that her senior will be different and she will land the man of her dreams, Victoria 'Tori' Lomax hatches the plan "Operation Fall for Tori." The plan have her crush, Colt Burgess, fall for her under the guise of him helping her fit into his social circle for another guy. The issue, Tori is known as the schools weird hippie chick. Being nothing like the girls in Colt's social circle, he's reluctant to help her. Plus Colt has his grades to worry about, since he can't play if he doesn't pull in a C average. So when his poor grades threaten to take away his love Colt is crushed. Colt finally agrees to help Tori and she helps Colt in history. Tori's plan could work after all IF only Colt could see her for more than a project and friend.
      Overall, great read. Just love how Tori has a plan to catch her man, it's ridiculous but cute, classic RomCom. Colt is the iconic jock but sweet at heart. Together they are just too cute. The fact that Tori tried changing herself to get her dream man at first bugged me but it then I realized how true Tori was in representing a lot of people and situations. So many times people change to fit in when being original is the best or life would be boring. Basically, this novel is a great series opener for new author Jordan Ford and I can't wait for more. So if you're looking for a cute high school read about a quirky girl trying to nab a hot jock when everyone says stick to status quo, then you'll love this book.
