Review: What You Always Wanted by Kristin Rae
If only…he was the boy she’s been dreaming of.
girl Maddie Brooks has always had high standards for guys. But she has
yet to find one who can live up to the classic Hollywood heartthrobs,
especially the dreamy song-and-dance man Gene Kelly. When Maddie begins
to carpool with Jesse Morales, her new neighbor and star pitcher of the
baseball team, she’s struck by his wit, good looks, and love for his
family—but a guy so into sports is definitely not her style. Then Maddie
discovers that Jesse was raised as a dancer and still practices in the
community theatre’s dance studio to keep in shape. Perhaps her perfect
dream guy exists after all! But when it becomes clear that baseball—not
dance—is Jesse’s passion, can Maddie find a way to let her dream guy go
and appreciate the charms of the amazing guy in front of her?
This fun, high school theatre romance in the If Only line is for anyone who has ever wished for that impossibly perfect guy.
