The Hoemance Book Club’s January 2023 Read: Highly Suspicious and Unfairly Cute by Talia Hibbert

Hey everyone, welcome or welcome back to my blog! Back in 2021 Rebecca and I started The Hoemance Book Club and we’ve absolutely loved discussing romance books with our book club every month so we’re keeping the book club running this year too and we have so many exciting romances to read with you all! Last year we read some real bangers like Weather Girl, Delilah Green Doesn’t Care & The Romantic Agenda. You can find everything we read in 2022 here.

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Brown Sisters trilogy, comes a laugh-out-loud story about a quirky content creator and a clean-cut athlete testing their abilities to survive the great outdoors–and each other.

Bradley Graeme is pretty much perfect. He’s a star football player, manages his OCD well (enough), and comes out on top in all his classes . . . except the ones he shares with his ex-best friend, Celine.
Celine Bangura is conspiracy-theory-obsessed. Social media followers eat up her takes on everything from UFOs to holiday overconsumption–yet, she’s still not cool enough for the popular kids’ table. Which is why Brad abandoned her for the in-crowd years ago. (At least, that’s how Celine sees it.)
These days, there’s nothing between them other than petty insults and academic rivalry. So when Celine signs up for a survival course in the woods, she’s surprised to find Brad right beside her.
Forced to work as a team for the chance to win a grand prize, these two teens must trudge through not just mud and dirt but their messy past. And as this adventure brings them closer together, they begin to remember the good bits of their history. But has too much time passed . . . or just enough to spark a whole new kind of relationship?
