Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett

This is the second Jenn Bennett book I've read and reviewed for this blog, and it didn't disappoint! I have to say I enjoyed this book more than Jenn's "Starry Eyes". It was so romantic!
'Alex, Approximately' is about the relationship between Bailey Rydell and Alex, a guy she met online. They live on opposite sides of the country, until Bailey moves in with her father in the same town as him. Bailey debates whether to tell him or not, but ultimately decides not to. I mean, they met online! Who knows who he is in real life. 
She gets a job at a museum and makes an arch-nemesis; the sexy security guard, Porter Roth. She despises him. Or...that's what she tells herself. Will Bailey put her online crush behind her, or will she cling to the fantasy called 'Alex'?
This book may be the cliche enemies to lovers, but it was executed very well. I got frustrated at the characters a few times because it was SO OBVIOUS! But that's what made me like it. When you start to feel like the characters are right in front of youk, you know the author did well. 
This is a nice summer beach read. It goes by pretty quick and is a must for young adults.
If you want to check this book out, here's a link: Amazon: Alex, Approximately.
