Lola Carlyle's 12- Step Romance by Danielle Younge-Ullman

Lola Carlyle is lonely, out of sorts, and in for a boring summer. So when her best friend, Sydney, calls to rave about her stay at a posh Malibu rehab and reveals that the love of Lola’s life, Wade Miller, is being admitted, she knows what she has to do.Never mind that her worst addiction is decaf cappuccino; Lola is going to rehab.

Lola arrives at Sunrise Rehab intent solely on finding Wade, saving him from himself, and—naturally—making him fall in love with her…only to discover she’s actually expected to be an addict. And get treatment. And talk about her issues with her parents, and with herself. Plus she has insane roommates, and an irritatingly attractive mentor, Adam, who’s determined to thwart her at every turn.

Oh, and Sydney? She’s gone.

Turns out, once her pride, her defenses, and her best friend are stripped away, Lola realizes she’s actually got a lot to overcome…if she can open her heart long enough to let it happen. 
First Line: "You could bounce a quarter off my butt cheeks."

Review: Okay so I'm not going to lie when I first picked this book up I read maybe a chapter of it and put it back down and didn't really pick it back up until a few weeks later and I don't know but maybe when I picked it up the first time, I wasn't in the right mindset to read it but the second time around I stuck with it and really enjoyed the hell out of it.

Lola is flawed down to the core and she comes from parents who are very well known in the celebrity world with her dad being some big time producer and her mom a soap opera actress. Anyways her parents are a joke they have issues for days and the dad barely keeps in touch with her, so even though Lola may think she went to check herself into rehab over a made up drinking problem so she can help some long lost friend/crush named Wade she learns that maybe she is exactly where she needs to be not for someone else but for herself.

By the end of the book, Lola is not the same girl we met at the beginning she goes through some huge character growth and development. She really went through it in rehab, at first in denial that she should be there and giving the swoon worthy Adam some serious hell, she broke every rule she could but Adam was made for the job and had some serious patience when it came to Lola. Eventually, Lola broke down and started doing what was expected of her and that is when you saw her grow as a person.

The romance was really cute and the book definitely had it's funny moments along with touching on the subject of addictions. Overall I really liked it and highly recommend it.
