Today, I’ll talk about a book that I’m actually super excited about: The Love Interest, by Cale Dietrich.
Summary: There is a secret organization that cultivates teenage spies. The agents are called Love Interests because getting close to people destined for great power means getting valuable secrets.
Caden is a Nice: The boy next door, sculpted to physical perfection. Dylan is a Bad: The brooding, dark-souled guy, and dangerously handsome. The girl they are competing for is important to the organization, and each boy will pursue her. Will she choose a Nice or the Bad?
Both Caden and Dylan are living in the outside world for the first time. They are well-trained and at the top of their games. They have to be – whoever the girl doesn’t choose will die.
What the boys don’t expect are feelings that are outside of their training. Feelings that could kill them both.
This sounds so good, am I right? It really sounds like it’s going to take tropes and turn them completely upside down, and be utterly hilarious while it does that.
A book where instead of there being an awful love triangle with a potentially awful heroine with every single cliche possible, the girl becomes the third wheel in their group of three? Sign me up.
I AM SO PUMPED FOR THIS, PEOPLE. I NEED IT NOW.
