Kate DelVecchio is a business woman. When it comes to matters of the heart, she has no time. Look at her own parents. Total dysfunction.
At seventeen, Kate has one goal in life: to become a millionaire before the age of twenty. (Okay, twenty-five if she hits some bumps in the road.) And as far as she’s concerned, college will only slow her down. Unfortunately for Kate, the one thing her parents do agree on is that they totally disagree with her strategy. And so the deal is born. If Kate can raise five thousand big ones by graduation day, her parents will hand over the balance of her college account to invest as she pleases. No college, no degree, and no way she’ll ever be able to pull it off.
Surprisingly, it’s where her heart isn’t that’s precisely what might solve her dilemma. Since when has love ever helped anyone?
When Kate reluctantly agrees to go to the sports banquet with the hottest guy in school, she stumbles on a possible cash cow. The rest of the senior class is amazed that no-nonsense Kate could hook such a hottie, and one by one they approach her for help hooking their own. She doesn’t know anything about getting guys, but for a hundred dollars a pop, she’s more that willing to invent a Six-Point Plan. And how could that possibly backfire?
This was a cute, quick read that was perfect for taking my mind off of a rainy afternoon. I don't really know what to say about it other than I enjoyed it. I'll definitely be reading Tina's Ferraro's other two novels because no thought is required what-so-ever to get into them. The less thinking the better, I say!
I did like how Kate realised that money wasn't everything and sacraficed her life savings to help someone she didn't like all the time, though.
A short, sweet review, for a short, sweet book!
