Book Review: A Longtime (and at one point illegal) Crush by Janette Rallison

Title: A Longtime (and at one point illegal) Crush
Author: Janette Rallison
Publisher: self
Release Date: February 2013
Pages: 62
Series: none

From the day Elsie’s older brother brought his friend Kye McBride over to their house, Elsie adored him. When she was eight, she secretly blew kisses to him. When she was twelve, she sat on the stairs unnoticed and watched him escort another girl to prom. When she was a senior in high school, she walked into math class and found out he was her new math teacher.

With that much emotion fueling her, things were bound to go wrong. And they did. Elsie not only spent the last two weeks of school avoiding him, she turned avoiding-Kye-at-all-costs into her life-long philosophy.

Now three years have passed and Elsie has come home for her brother’s wedding. She’s got to face Kye-–hopefully without getting crushed again.

My Thoughts:
Oh sigh, Janette Rallison can do no wrong. I love her books! She writes the best embarrassing moments. This one was painfully embarrassing and made me cringe . . . and laugh. Great great stuff. This was the first book by Janette I’ve read with an older Main Character. The other books I’ve read were teenagers. Elsie was in college and so probably early twenties, but she does flashback to her high school days too.

This is a must read for anyone who wants a sweet romance with a good laugh. Seriously, the girl was in love with her math teacher who happened to be her brother’s best friend. Classic. I loved every minute of this read! I just wished it was longer! This was a novella so only 62 pages of blissfully fun reading.
