Alex has big plans for camp this year, starting with making it the best summer ever. Having fun and breaking some rules will get her the payback she wants against her parents and her ex-boyfriend. Because of his disgusting texts, she's headed to a super strict all-girls school in the fall. Then she meets Javier and revenge doesn't seem nearly as important as getting to know the troubled loner determined to keep a low profile at camp. But Alex's trouble-magnet personality and Javier's need to stay in the background don't mix nearly as well as their irresistible chemistry. With her home life eroding under her feet and her last year of summer camp speeding to a close, Alex wants to make her mark on the world and squeeze every bit of fun out of her time with Javier. Too bad her old plans for revenge turn back on her just in time to ruin everything. Will she lose Javier too?


I forgot how much I loved this series. I need the rest of the series right now. This was beautiful. I forgot how much I loved Camp Boyfriend and I set this aside for a month or more even and now I'm just in love with it all over again. J.K. Rock, you got me hooked again!

Camp Payback was about a different girl than Camp Boyfriend. This one was about Alex, who has been taught to be perfect, because her parents own a blog about their Wholesome Family. But Alex is done with doing everything wrong and being judged for everything, so she wants payback.

The dual narratives worked this time, even though I'm not a very big fan of it usually. But it worked in this novel. It's a cute and fluffy read. Expect romance, but also expect lots of drama. And let's just talk about Javier. I love Javier. I feel so bad about his situation, but I'm so happy that everything ended well in the end.

The writing was again great in this part of the series. It was cute and easy to read and I didn't want to stop reading. That's just what a good book does to me. I need a physical copy for my collection. I love this series so much. I highly recommend this one! I still envy the authors for being able to write this together, without making it seems like it are two people writing this.

I highly recommend this series to everyone that is a fan of cute contemporary romances. This is definitely one that you would want to pick up if you're a fan of them. I loved the entire series and the next two parts are coming out this year as well, so stay on the look out for those! The novellas are free to download online.

  2. Sandra- I <3 you, girl! That review rocked. Thank you so much!!!! xoxo

  3. I felt so bad about Alex and Javier too! They were just so trapped. I'm glad things worked out well for them, but it sure wasn't easy to see what they had to go through.

  4. I keep hearing really good things about this series - looks like a great read for the summer!
