There is a secret organization that cultivates teenage spies. The agents are called Love Interests because getting close to people destined for great power means getting valuable secrets.
Caden is a Nice: The boy next door, sculpted to physical perfection. Dylan is a Bad: The brooding, dark-souled guy, and dangerously handsome. The girl they are competing for is important to the organization, and each boy will pursue her. Will she choose a Nice or the Bad?
Both Caden and Dylan are living in the outside world for the first time. They are well-trained and at the top of their games. They have to be – whoever the girl doesn’t choose will die.
What the boys don’t expect are feelings that are outside of their training. Feelings that could kill them both.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
The Love Interest was a book that I was super excited for and when I got approved for an e-ARC on Netgalley, I may have jumped up and down a little. I immediately started reading it once it downloaded to my kindle because there was no way that I could wait.
The Love Interest has such an unique and intriguing premise, I mean, a YA book about spies? Yes, please! I think that was what caught my eye with this book. That, and the fact that the love interest are on both side of the spectrum, a Nice and a Bad. I really enjoyed this aspect of the book, watching both boys try to win the heart of Juliet all the while knowing in the back of their mind what happens if they lose.
I also really enjoyed the other romantic aspect of this book, I don’t want to say any more because of spoilers, especially since I was spoiled on this aspect due to a Goodreads review that wasn’t hid. But I definitely felt the chemistry with these two specific characters and I think this relationship was my favorite in the book.
This book also delivers on the feels. There are so many things that happen that I wish would’ve worked out differently, once again, I’m being vague due to spoilers, but oh my gosh, certain things broke my heart. The characters and their relationships were definitely my favorite part of this book.
Overall, The Love Interest is a book that I can see a lot of people falling in love with.
