Review Tour -- Operation Prom Date by Cindi Madsen

We're celebrating the release of OPERATION PROM DATE by Cindi Madsen!

Title: Operation Prom Date
Author: Cindi Madsen 
Age: YA
Genre: Contemporary Romance/RomCom
Publisher: Entangled Teen


Kissing practice has never been more fun.

Kate ships tons of fictional couples, but IRL her OTP is her and Mick, the hot quarterback she’s crushed on since, like, forever. With only one semester left of senior year, it’s now or never if she wants to land him in time for prom. Since she’s flirtationally challenged, she enlists Cooper Callihan, the guy who turned popular seemingly overnight but who used to be a good friend.

Cooper lives and breathes rowing, but his partner just broke his wrist. When he remembers Kate’s good with a set of oars, he strikes a deal: help him train, and he’ll make sure her crush notices her. Only he didn’t know how addicting spending time with her would be. Or how the more successful the Operation is, the more jealousy he experiences.

The mission has been set. The troops have their marching orders. But what if the target is the wrong guy all along?

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains stargazing, accidental swimming, and poker swindling. This kissing practice will melt your ereader…and give you a new couple to ship.


"Train with me, and I'll train you on how to land Mick."

Okay, seriously though...
This is one of my favorites reads so far this year!!!

Be still my heart!!
Friends to lovers will always be my favorite, and this one is one of the sweetest!

Kate just wants a chance with her long time crush. But not just any chance...she wants a prom date.
Cooper needs help to train for a rowing compition. Kate needs guidance, and he needs a training partner.
Win win, right?

"I was falling for the girl who liked someone else."

Oh my goodness, I loved every minute of this story!

Kate could be my best friend! Her nerdy girl, fandom love is my daily life! 
She was relatable and fun. The way she pined after the star quarterback was like taking me back to high school crush days.

Cooper was the guy you couldn't help but to love.
He was sarcastic and outgoing. And even though he made a deal just to help his training, the way he assisted Kate grab her crush was both sweet, and shall I say, heartbreaking.

Sometimes pretending leads you to what you truly want.

"I stood there, beyond confused, wondering when I'd let myself fall for the wrong boy."

This book gave me heart flutters in the most wonderful ways.

You got to see two people slowly fall for each other.
The innocence of it all.
The changing of the way they saw each other.
My breath caught every time they realized their hearts were leaning towards each other.

And can we talk about that first kiss tho?!
Holy cow!!
That might be one of my favorite first kisses of all time!
All. The. Feels!!!!

I honestly could go on and on about this story!
The fandom love, the stars, the butterflies, the first many things!!

Cindi Madsen...You hit this out of the park!!
Thank you for giving us Kate and Cooper!


"I didn't want safe and risk free, I wanted the boy who kissed me under the startlit sky last night.
I want Cooper Callihan."

"For the first time in my life, I was completely sure of one thing I wanted, no second guessing, no fear of overthinking in long term scenerios.
I wanted Kate."
