between him and Lacey, and I d love to hear a song from him on the radio Definitely a fun book that you don t want to miss One thing you might not know about me is that my favorite thing to read are fluff young adult books So maybe my viewpoint on this book could be affected by that Meaning, I absolutely loved this book so much because of all the unproblematic cuteness around Lacey is a teenage

absolutely loved this book so much because of all the unproblematic cuteness around Lacey is a teenage girl who has a successful youtube channel about make up tutorials Her goal is to make a career out of it, and she finds herself closer to achieving that goal when she s picked as one of the three youtubers to intern at a magazine called On Trend Her job this summer is to work alongside the other interns to make the cover boy, Tyler Lance, look good in front of his fans As someone who watches youtubers on a almost daily basis, I really enjoyed seeing the characters as one of them, it was fun and light, at times exaggerated though I mean, I know it must be difficult getting backlash and you can t please everyone but I don t think it could get to that extend Maybe that s just me being naive though.I m one of those girls, that like Lacey, loves make up and wears it everyday, and it s honestly so rare to find protagonists that are like that that I instantly connected to her, and of course, it made me start loving her But seriously though, that aside, she was still such a good character, she s charming, fun and enthusiastic, I related to herandwith every decision she made The romance wasn t something overwhelming that I was totally into I liked the idea of it, although it felt maybe insta loveish from Tyler s side I didn t really feel they had a lot of chemistry or connection However, how it progressed was enjoyable and very cute I m conflicted over the fact that it wasn t something I kept wanting to seeof, I wasinterested on how she was going to deal with her career and the choices she d have to make then to see how she d work things out with Tyler, and I m not sure if that s a good or a bad thing.Tyler was a fun character, I liked him overall, but he s at times somewhat gullible and a little naive when it comes to his family So even though I liked him, he frustrated me to no end as well.The writing was something I really enjoyed, the only thing I wish we could have seenof is Lacey and Cynth s friendship, but other than that everything was really fun and cute to read, I loved it I received this book via NetGalley in return for an honest review

including a sarcastic eye roll Now here s the deal, I m not big into makeup, jewelry, or even clothing AND IT DIDN T MATTER By the end of the story, I was totally in love with the idea of that world where makeup is the center of the someone s universe To draw me, the ultimate stand off reader to that happy place, now that s a job well done.The romance was sweet, but not overpowering As a reader, I was conflicted right along with Lacey, and I truly appreciated that element of reality The romance also didn t overpower the other aspects of the plot themes of friendship, change, and family took an equal share To top it off, I wouldn t blush in the least about handing this book off to my 12 yr old daughter to read That s huge.At First Blush will make readers reevaluate their life priorities, and I foresee it ranking in my top 10 reads for 2017 Thank you, Ms Summer for a wonderful reading experience Content warning Clean I was very excited when I got to read an Advanced Readers Copy of At

loved YouTube She was a beauty Tuber, you know, the kind that make you feel like crap because no matter how much you try and can never make your eyeliner look as awesome as theirs wait, just me Never mind.Lacey is starts out loving YouTube, even missing prom for it I like how she starts to change through the book, how she starts to see that there isthan YouTube, that she is missing out on life for this website.We get to see her struggle with lying to her fans for money and I really loved how she finally said, no She didn t like the crap they were trying to make her sell I loved watching her come into her own See what made her happy I do not like Tyler that much I mean I m iffy on him I don t hate him but I don t love him I feel he needed to be fleshed out a lotto fully work for me I m still not sure what all happened with his family and the band and if they are fine now or what we also didn t a reason for how he acted in the beginning Not really, he was just a jerk.The writing is super easy to follow, it s a super easy read It s fun and entertained me Though it s nothing profound Just a cute little fluff book If you want a happy fun time, this book is for you.Thanks to NetGalley for this ARC AT FIRST BLUSH is officially in the world To everyone who has taken the time to read it, rate it review it, thank you SO much Everything about this book was perfection This book takes you behind the scenes into makeup vlogging and magazine interning The reader is also immersed in a fantastic main character Lacey , her personal growth, and her romantic life that presents conflicts I m glad to see books that present online personas, since it s timely and many young people have their internet selves via Youtube, Instagram, and other platforms, which may or may not be compatible with their real selves This is a fast read that I read in two days.
