A Kiss by the Book (Kiss & Tell #2) by Christy Hayes

Although this is the second book in the series, you do not need to read the first book; this is a stand alone book. 

Zach Chamberlain's life is perfect; he is the school's golden boy, football star and he's dating a pretty girl he plans to propose to.

There's just one problem with and that is his girlfriend is in love with someone else and that someone else happens to be his younger brother and her best friend. Which seriously, how could he not see she wasn't really his girlfriend, their relationship was solely physical. If your girlfriend turns to someone for every little thing there is something going on there.

To save face Zach turns to his tutor Jenna Peterson for help. Along the way and few kisses their friendship turns into a real relationship and Zach realizes he never really loved his ex. He realizes he stuck around because she was safe and just there; which sounds really bad, but come on, it seems she basically stuck around because he was the popular guy. They were both bad.

Jenna was a really funny and endearing character, she knows how to stand up to Zach and take him down a peg. Zach and Jenna made a cute couple because they actually, and Zach wasn't such a bad guy, a little blind maybe, but not bad.

I will say though, Zach's ex should have come clean forever ago and his brother, dude low blow. He knew his brother was thinking of proposing and just goes along with it, when he's already starting something with his brother gf, DRAMA. Still, things worked out great, Zach got someone good and even if his relationship with his brother will be a little strained for a while. Definitely an enjoyable read.
