Kat Caruso wishes her brain had a return policy, or at least a complaint hot-line. The defective organ is constantly distracted, terrible at statistics, and absolutely flooded with inappropriate thoughts about her boyfriend’s gorgeous best friend, Alec…who just so happens to be her brand new math tutor. Who knew nerd was so hot?
Kat usually goes through tutors like she does boyfriends—both always seem to bail when they realize how hopeless she is. It’s safer for her heart to keep everyone at arm’s reach. But Alec is always stepping just a little too close.
Alec Stone should not be fantasizing about Kat. She’s adorable, unbelievably witty, and completely off limits. He’d never stab his best friend in the back…
But when secrets are revealed, the lines of loyalty are blurred. To make it count, Alec must learn messy human emotions can’t be solved like a trigonometry function. And Kat has to trust Alec may be the first guy to want her for who she is, and not in spite of it.

I’m all for overcoming the extreme challenges of learning disabilities as this book tries to tackle, but the characters here tend to lurch from extreme to another, displaying traits more suited to juveniles at times than college-age students that I couldn’t bring myself to get behind them at all. From oversensitive and unreasonable behaviour (Kat) to being love-sick & hen-pecked (Alec), both the H/hr do no favours to themselves when it comes to being unequally yoked.
