Fans of Sarah Dessen, Stephanie Perkins, and Jenny Han will delight as the fireworks spark and the secrets fly in this delicious summer romance from a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author.

When Jade decided to spend the summer with her aunt in California, she thought she knew what she was getting into. But nothing could have prepared her for Quentin. Jade hasn't been in suburbia long and even she knows her annoying (and annoyingly cute) next-door neighbor spells T-R-O-U-B-L-E.

And when Quentin learns Jade plans to spend her first American summer hiding out reading books, he refuses to be ignored. Sneaking out, staying up, and even a midnight swim, Quentin is determined to give Jade days--and nights--worth remembering.

But despite their storybook-perfect romance, every time Jade moves closer, Quentin pulls away. And when rumors of a jilted ex-girlfriend come to light, Jade knows Quentin is hiding a secret--and she's determined to find out what it is.

Almost Impossible was a great summer romance novel! This was the perfect book to pick up when I was craving a contemporary with romance, banter, feels, and some drama sprinkled in!

The main character, Jade, was a very likable character. She was a very practical and level-headed girl. I related to her SO HARD when she just wanted to stay inside an read books! She was someone that didn't really take risks if she had any thought of it not working. I liked that she was always someone who tried to think things through before doing them. However, it was nice to see her let loose a little bit in this book and learn that it is okay to lose control sometimes! Quentin was the main male character and he was a dream-boat. He always said what was on his mind and wasn't afraid to do daring things, especially for the people he cared about. He was a charming and kind guy. I couldn't help but fall in love with him!

The romance in this book was super adorable and full of swoons. The author did a great job at creating characters that some wouldn't think would work, but it turned out that they were perfect together. The emotional and physical chemistry between Jade and Quentin was incredible!

The main reason this book didn't get a higher review was that I didn't like the predictability. I was hoping for more surprises when secrets were revealed, but I was able to predict all of them. I still enjoyed the book A LOT, but it was something that took a bit of enjoyment away.

Overall, this book was a fun, entertaining, and adorable book. If you are looking for a quick and romantic contemporary novel to pick up, I definitely recommend this one!
