Hayden and Nick used to be a hot item, but their brief affair ended with a highly publicized breakup. Now the two are "just friends," excluding the occasional flirtation.
When Hayden wins the girls' division of a local snowboarding competition, Nick is unimpressed, claiming that Hayden wouldn't have a chance against a guy. Hayden calls Nick's bluff and challenges him to a head-to-head boarding contest. Their mutual friends quickly take sides, the girls on Hayden's and the boys on Nick's, making for an all-out battle of the sexes. This friendly competition is bound to get heated -- and they might end up igniting some old flames.
Hilarious, sweet, and fun

Since their very public breakup four years ago, Hayden and Nick have been just friends, at best. So what if Hayden's best friends are now with Nick's best friends? So what if Nick has seemed to be flirting with Hayden lately? Hayden will not give in to Nick's hunkiness, no matter how much she enjoys the flirting. When Hayden wins the girls' division of a local snowboarding competition, Nick derides her victoray by declaring she couldn't hold her own against a guy. Oh, it's on now. How Hayden and Nick aren't just exchanging light insults and gibes but heavier taunts and angry exclamations they might not be able to take back. As each prepares for this new snowboarding battle of the sexes, they'll have to break past their own fears and decide what's more important: winning the competition or the relationship neither thought would work out.

Very entertaining and funny

review Hayden and Nick were sweethearts for some short weeks when they were 13. Now it's four years later and there is still something special between them. Even though Hayden has been the victim of a lot of jokes from Nick she is still interested in him. When a banter between them results in a snowboarding contest to find out if Hayden or Nick is the better snowboarder things change. While preparing for the contest they realize that the banter between them is in reality just a way to disguise their true feelings. Who will win the snowboard contest and even more importantly will they both win in the game called love?
I read this book looking for a light-hearted, entertaining and cute story and that's exactly what I got. All of the main characters are likable and there are a lot of scenes that made me laugh. The love story between Hayden and Nick is predictable but in a good way. The journey to their personal happy end is cute and makes me want to read more by... read more
I expected so much more
By D. Strayhorn "teen angster" - June 17, 2010
After reading "Going too far," and loving it I sought out other books by this author and found this one. It wasn't at all what I expected. This book lacked the depth of the other and I found the "I like you/I hate you" dynamic of the main characters annoying. They never seemed to get through an entire chapter, nor conversation, for that matter, feeling the same way about each other. There were a few comedic moments but they just weren't enough to make me completely like this book and I really did try.
