Two random strangers. Thirty-six questions to make them fall in love.
Hildy and Paul each have their own reasons for taking part in the psychology study (in Paul’s case it is the $40, in Hildy’s the reasons are significantly more complex). The study poses the simple question: Can love be engineered between two random strangers?
Hildy and Paul must ask each other 36 questions, ranging from “What is your most terrible memory?” to “When did you last sing to yourself?” By the time Hildy and Paul have made it to the end of the questionnaire, they’ve laughed and cried and lied and thrown things and run away and come back again. They’ve also each discovered the painful secret the other was trying so hard to hide. But have they fallen in love?

I recieved a copy of this book from Readers First in exchange for a review.
This is going to be a pretty short review I think as I don’t have a lot to say about it. This book didn’t overly excite me to be honest, the beginning half, I wasn’t t exactly keen on it, Paul just frustrated me, a lot. I absolutely despised him, the ending was okay, as we see character development with Paul but Hildy pretty much remains the same throughout the book. It was a quick read, it was one I wanted to finish quickly, it had just under 300 pages.
The two characters take part in a study to answer 36 questions, which Hildy takes seriously and answers properly whereas Paul is only doing it for $40 so doesn’t really give much to go on about him.
In the book there are drawings inside which are pretty nice, I did like that aspect of it. I would say that this is just a general love story that you can pretty much find anywhere, this book was okay but I don’t think I will be reading it again. If you want to read a typical boy meets girl book that is fast paced with a usual ending, you will probably like this one. I don’t really read a lot of romance books and I don’t think I’ll carry on with reading many romance based YA books.
