A pitch-perfect summer camp rom-com about two teens with nothing in common who come together to help break up a romance and unexpectedly start one of their own

Sixteen-year-old Paisley Manning has been attending Camp Seabrook since she was a little girl, when her parents ran it together. For the last few years, since her father’s death, she’s been the one helping her mom run the camp behind the scenes. This year, however, will be Camp Seabrook’s last hurrah because Paisley’s mom has met a guy online and they’re getting married.

Enter Hayden Bennett, who is working alongside Paisley. Paisley and Hayden are like oil and water. She follows the rules, and he seems to live to break them all. But when Hayden catches wind of Paisley’s predicament, he has an idea. If a matchmaker in some computer algorithm caused the issue, a couple of real-life matchbreakers can fix it.

As they work to break up the happy couple, Paisley discovers that maybe Hayden’s not so bad after all. Has she met her own perfect match in her fellow matchbreaker?

Underlined is a line of totally addictive romance, thriller, and horror paperback original titles coming to you fast and furious each month. Enjoy everything you want to read the way you want to read it.

The Matchbreaker Summer is a fun-filled summer romance. Two polar opposites, Paisley and Hayden, are on a matchbreaker mission this camp season. She and Hayden are up to no good, with harmless pranks and shenanigans to break her mom’s relationship.

Paisley was desperate to save the camp her dad built with his love and hard work. It was not as if her mom’s new boyfriend wasn’t mean to her or anything. He was a dork, but Paisley didn’t want him replacing her dad. So she teams up with the school’s troublemaker to break them apart.

Paisley’s hostility to new changes grew more when people kept telling her that change is good. She wanted to hold onto the last thing that was of her dad’s, so I understood her POV. I wish the elders in the book saw that she was struggling to accept change even after all these years and gave her some time to process things on her own.

Forget about the missions working or not, it only brought Paisley and Hayden together. He was obviously making her break the rules, but it wasn’t anything too serious. He didn’t have a bad-boy persona per se, but he found trouble wherever he went. Altogether, he was a sweet guy with cute surprises.

 If you’re looking for a light teen-romance with camp crushes and bird trivia, then The Matchbreaker Summer is your book for this summer.
