It began with the forging of a great friendship.
For three months, Lydia Bell has watched Craig, her best friend and the love of her life, be in a happy relationship with someone else. But she’s over it. Or thinks she is until she hears Craig’s voice on the phone. Desperate to put her romantic feelings behind, she joins her roommates for a night out. Maybe she’ll meet someone.
And meet someone she does—a guy named Scott, who looks a lot like Craig. Despite their awkward introduction, flaming arrows fly, and soon Lydia is running off the dance floor to get away from feelings she shouldn’t have. So much for getting over Craig, and so much for Scott.
Until Monday morning, that is. Turns out Scott goes to her school. Worse, they share a class. As if that’s not weird enough, Scott is also trying to get over someone. To help both Lydia and himself, he proposes a fling, and reluctantly, Lydia agrees. Now she just has to hope this fling rules and doesn’t crash into a fiery mountain.
One Fling to Rule Them All has got to be the most entertaining, funny, and nerdy book I’ve ever read. It was awesome, simply awesome! And I just know a lot of readers would absolutely love this book as much as I did.
Lydia’s been in love with her best friend Craig since forever. Unfortunately he has a girlfriend and doesn’t feel the same way. Then Lydia meets Scott and finds out he’s exactly in the same situation as her, trying to get over a girl named Cathy. When he proposes a fling to try to get over their feelings for Craig and Cathy, Lydia agrees and sparks start flying.
So I really liked how both Lydia and Scott started out having feelings for other people and tried having a fling together to forget about them. It may started out rather awkwardly but it wasn’t long before they really had a great dynamic and chemistry between them.
Really, this book was just loads of fun. I laughed my ass off reading Lydia’s inner thoughts (really she’s a riot!). And Scott was just super cute, although there was a moment where I thought, no bad Scott, what are you doing?! But anyway I enjoyed One Fling to Rule Them All so so so much!
And last but not least another thing I loved were of course all the pop culture references. I’m talking about Lord of the Rings (obviously!), Harry Potter, Pocahontas, Star Wars and so on. And it all really spoke to my inner nerd. It was all kinds of awesome!
