Review: The Love Hack by Lauren Helms

Review: The Love Hack by Lauren Helms

This year is all about discovering who I really am. A road trip to a place seven hundred miles away, might not seem like much, but to me it means freedom. I set out looking for adventure, I never expected Ryker would help me find it.

I’m no prince charming, but I may just be her knight in shining armor. First, captivated by her ridiculously long blonde hair, I soon find out there is so much more to Zella then her hypnotizing locks. Turns out those hacking skills I’ve been practicing are about to come in handy.

A straight-laced good girl meets a bad boy is this modern fairy-tale retelling full of first love, music, a road trip vacation, and just a little illegal hacking.

Note: this book was previously published as Innocent Princess. The Love Hack features the same loveable charters and the same wonderful story.

“I fell for you the moment you showed up in my tower.”

If you’re a fan of modern fairytale re-tellings, you are not going to want to miss The Love Hack. The Love Hack is a sweet, and fun take on Rapunzel that will leave readers with a huge smile on their faces.

The Love Hack follows the story of Zella & Ryker. Zella is the good girl who’s life has been totally sheltered. Now that she’s away at college, Zella is determined to live and experience everything that life has to give. And when she meets Ryker all bets are off. Ryker is a total bad boy hacker. He’s the complete opposite of Zella in every way. But, when Zella needs help, Ryker is right there to save the day. What started off as a quest to find answers, turned into the road trip of a lifetime. A road trip, a biker bar, and a bucket list…what could possibly go wrong??

The Love Hack is a super fun and entertaining read. Ryker and Zella were easy to connect with and root for. I loved how sweet and innocent Zella was. She always saw things in a positive way and wasn’t afraid to take risks. And then we’ve got Ryker, the hacker with a heart of gold. Yes, he’s a bad boy, there is more to him than meets the eye. He’s unbelievably sweet and cares for Zella more than he wants to admit. The chemistry between Zella and Ryker was real and instant. While they might seem like an unlikely pair, I for one, couldn’t help but root for the two of them.

The Love Hack captured my interest from the very first page and is definitely the kind of story you can finish in a single sitting. This story is well written and I could easily visualize everything that was happening. With a smartly written heroine, witty humor, and oh, so sweet romance, author Lauren Helms nailed it with her modern re-telling of Rapunzel. This story hit all the marks and had just a dash of drama to balance things out.

If you’re looking for a sweet romance with light drama, look no further. The Love Hack is just the book you’ve been waiting for.

*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review*
