Earn Your Extra Credit by Meghan Quinn


Earn Your Extra Credit

"She went home with someone else that night?"

Hearing the disbelief from my best friend's mouth makes the events of my failed date sting that much more.

I would like to make it known, I have a lot more swagger than what it seems. I don't normally ask a girl out, have her fail to recognize it's a date, and then give me a high five--as if I'm her wingman--and take off with someone else.

No. Normally I'm the one taking the girl home but with Stella, it's been one failed attempt after another and frankly, I'm done trying.

But thanks to my best friend getting married in Hawaii right before the school year starts, I'm stuck on a tropical island, watching Stella parade around in what she claims is a bathing suit.

Unfortunately, that's not the worst of it, just the tip of the iceberg. Because what I think is going to be a relaxing vacation, avoiding the one girl I can't seem to make it work with, has turned into a spectacle of being recruited as Stella's doting fake fiancé so she can save face with an old "friend" from high school.

Now I'm navigating through purgatory while trying not to get turned on by the way she holds my hand or kisses my jaw. It's all fake, that's what I keep telling myself, even though it feels entirely too real.

Note from author: This book is a smattering of tropes: Enemies to lovers, turned friends to lovers, and also coworkers to lovers. Not to mention, a fake fiancé romance that takes place in Maui and Chicago. Lots of heat--a balcony scene that will make you blush--absurdly funny pranks, best supporting cast, a surprise "mom" you'll never see coming, and a grumbly guss of a hero who can't stop pining after his girl. Enjoy!


4.5 stars

I read the companion book to this series, See Me After Class and am so glad I did. It gave me a good background into the cast. All of the teachers are going on vacation with Arlo and Greer to attend their wedding. Stella and Romeo have been good friends forever but Romeo wants more and felt the sting of rejection when Stella brought one of their other friends to their date. Now they are in paradise and Stella runs into her dad who is engaged to Stella's old high school nemesis. She tells them that she too is engaged and swindles Romeo into helping her.

This book is full of good times, angst and great friendships. I enjoyed watching Stella try to dig herself out of the hole she'd dig herself into.

This is a slow burn so don't think things get resolved immediately. These characters have to work for their love.

Highly recommended.
