3 stars

Blurb (from Goodreads):

Nik Gustafsson has a secret: He’s not really Nik Gustafsson.

He’s not a spy. He’s not crazy.

He’s just the son and heir to one of the most important families in Europe—one where duty always comes first. And his posh, too-public life is suffocating him. So when he gets the chance to attend boarding school in America, pretending to be an average exchange student is too big of a temptation to pass up.

Then he literally runs into Amber on campus. And she hates him at first sight.

It’s kind of exhilarating to be hated for who he is, not for his family name or his wealth. Maybe if he turns up the charm and turns down the aloof mask he habitually wears, he can win her over. Even though a bad past experience has made her swear off dating this year.

But the more he gets to know her, the more uncomfortable he is keeping things from her.

Because Nik Gustafsson has a secret. And it’s a big one.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a hot boy who’s the strong and silent type, a studious girl who refuses to believe in fairy-tale romance, and one epic secret that could be disastrous if it comes to light.

My Thoughts

This book was sooo cute! I really loved Nik and Amber and how the story progressed between these two despite how different they were from each other.

Nik Gustafsson has a huge secret (can’t tell you… shush!), his life is too privy to the eyes of the public and he desperately needs a break. He jumps at the chance of attending school at America where no one would recognize him. Amber doesn’t need a boy in her life after her breakup but there’s something about Nik that she just can’t shake off but she understands he’s hiding a secret as well. Can a relationship is possible between two people who are polar opposites to each other?

The plot was executed really well and I enjoyed this story quite a lot. Nik has been granted only a year to study abroad outside Europe and he wants to make the most of it. All he just has to do is stay away from cameras. I absolutely loved Nik’s awkwardness, it was just so cute! But he tried his best to fit in but I definitely agree with Amber’s statement, a little different is good.

I enjoyed the relationship between Nik and Amber, although it was a bit sudden but it didn’t matter much. However, the middle portion of the book felt a little low for me and I felt a bit bored but it picked up its speed near the end again, and oh my god!! How much I adored the every little thing that happened in the last few chapters. And I simply looooved Nik’s dad’s reaction when Nik finally confessed everything to him.

Overall, There’s Something About Nik was an enjoyable read. I liked the plot and I enjoyed the character growth. The romance between Nik and Amber was just so sweet! The writing was smooth and simple and the pace was even throughout the book.

  1. I put this book on my TBR for a future rainy day. When it’s rainy and yucky outside, I love reading silly little contemporary romances. It sounds like this is perfect for that! Shame it slowed down in the middle… but that happens often with contemporary romance, in my opinion. Did Nik and Amber have other characters to interact with?

  2. I was actually going to read this book but I changed my mind because currently I have lots of books in my plate and this one sounds like a book that I would definitely enjoy reading but I don’t think I would love it. Anyway, Great review! 😀
