If it had started before she was asked out with more about what her relationship was like with Alec pre-tutoring, that would have been preferable. The author did do a pretty good job of keeping the characters fairly transparent and making me care about them in so few page though.
The Dating Tutor by Melissa Frost
Despite what another review said, there is mild swearing and sex though it is not described, it just happens so it is not completely innocent. It's not exactly seedy either though. I'd say it is okay for teens but not so much for tweens. A very cute story, but also very very short. It could have been developed better.

Letting the reader know details of Ellie and Alec's friendship, his pranks, how they met etc. The characters could have been better developed too. If the author added more details, descriptions, and past scenes and didn't jump from a scene in the present to 2 weeks in the future like when Alec and Ellie have a fight and then the story jumps to the Prom night a few weeks later, skipping details of Ellie' A very cute story, but also very very short.
If the author added more details, descriptions, and past scenes and didn't jump from a scene in the present to 2 weeks in the future like when Alec and Ellie have a fight and then the story jumps to the Prom night a few weeks later, skipping details of Ellie's hurting feelings it would have been a longer story and could become a better book, worth of the price too.
I liked Ellie and felt connected to her from the start. I'm much like her, I'd say.

I didn't like Alec much, most of the time, especially during the beginning of his tutoring sessions and the practice date. He was crude, rude and annoying. He and Ellie became real fast friends and he did a real big thing for her at Prom night.
It was also freeing for himself, but he did it mostly for Ellie. That was a very nice thing to do. So, all in all a very nice read. And the ending was just sooooo cute!!! Dec 16, Peggy rated it really liked it. I've been in a mood for light hearted books, and this book filled my expectations!
It is a cute story about two best friends falling in love, and while it uses all the stereotypical moments of "I love him and I didn't realize it before", it delivered for my current reading desires. I would definitely re-read my kindle version of this book when I got into a mood for fluffy romances. Mar 05, Fernanda Leite rated it really liked it Shelves: OMG, I really really like it!

The end from his POV was that much more romantic knowing how they both felt and the added material at the end was a real treat.

Alone, the two stories are perhaps a bit lacking but together they are good entertainment. Jan 22, Fernanda Leite rated it really liked it Shelves: For those who have read the Ellie's version, you already know what's going to happen here, but it's still worth it. Alec's point of view is well developted and it gives the romance more base I know that is not the right word, but I can't remember right now.

Ellie is hardly the most sought after girl at Noble High, so she is completely surprised when the boy most likely to become prom king asks her out. After a fair amount of wheedling, she convinces her best friend and hockey star, Alec, to tutor her in the ways of love.

Only once things start, she finds she knows even less than first suspected. Dating is full of more codes and unspoken rules than she ever imagined. Even more difficult is the effort not to cross lines with Alec. Shadow of the Crone. Instinct - Episode Stuart the House Pig. How to write a great review.
