Author: Kate Evangelista
Read on: Swoon Reads 

Genre: Young Adult ~ Contemporary Romance
Rating: 5/5

Didi. A girl from the other side of the tracks.

Caleb. A rich boy in desperate need of a fake girlfriend.

They meet after he saves her from jumping off a cliff.

The proposal: Accompany him to all the parties he must attend for the summer. He is willing to pay her for her time.

The condition: She must not, under any circumstances, fall in love with him or their relationship ends.

She accepts, but with a stern warning for him: “You might fall in love with me.”

This story took me kind of by surprise. To be honest, I didn't expect to love it this much. I've read only one other contemporary book by Kate Evangelista, which I wasn't such a fan of. The others that I have read were all paranormal and I usually tend to dislike contemporary stories more but this one? I love it and it might just be my favorite book by this author!

This is the story of Caleb and Diana a.k.a. Didi. Caleb is a rich guy that needs a fake girlfriend to attend parties and other events with so that his father will let him attend college far away. This is where Didi comes in. There's only one rule: she can't fall in love with him. Little did he know that he'd have trouble with following that rule. 

I absolutely loved Didi. She was funny, spoke her mind, creative and didn't let people walk all over her. But at the same time there was mystery surrounding her because she takes pills. For what, we don't actually find out until close to the end. I also adored Caleb. Even though he's this rich guy who doesn't believe in love he was easy to like. I thought it was simply adorable the way he was taken with Didi because it's not something he or even myself as a reader expected. 

The story made me laugh a lot, it was really funny but there was also a serious side to it because of Didi's condition. I really liked that. The romance was incredible. Caleb and Didi have crazy good chemistry and I rooted for them through the whole book. I wasn't even sure if it was going to end well so I couldn't read those last pages fast enough.

There was also a great set of secondary characters. Nathan was my favorite, of course. And I'm so thrilled that he's going to get his own story too. *cheers* I can't wait for it. I also liked Nathan's sister Natasha a lot and I was even amused by Amber because Didi kept saying her name wrong on purpose to tick her off. 

Overall, Warning! You Might Fall In Love With Me by Kate Evangelista was the perfect YA contemporary romance for me. It had humor, romance, awesome characters and great writing. Pretty much everything I want in a book like this. Totally recommended!
