This book was adorable, I’m a sucker for a great meet cute and this book definitely did it for me.
Kay is an up and coming fanfic author that is going to her first convention called GreatCon where she gets to meet her fandom friends in real life and hopefully start using her new pronouns. And hey, if she gets to kiss a girl for the first time that’d be pretty great too. When she gets to the convention, to her dismay there’s also a teen pageant being held in the hotel she’s staying at, which includes her bully Miss North Carolina that she goes to school with back in her small hometown.
Teagan, also known as Miss Virginia, is competing in the pageant to win the much-needed scholarship prize but she has some secrets of her own; she hates competing in these pageants and is hiding the fact that she’s a big nerd for GreatCon. Oh and the fact that she’s gay which she can’t let anyone in the pageant world know.
When Kay and Teagan meet the first night there are immediate sparks between the two of them. But they know that their connection will cause problems in both of their worlds. Are they willing to take the risk to be together or will they continue to hide their true selves?
Both of these characters stole my heart from the very beginning of the book. I loved the fandom aspects of this book and the celebration of femininity, it was great to read and completely put me all in my feels. I loved reading from both main characters and I honestly don’t think I could pick a favorite if I had to.
As soon as I finished this book I ran out to buy my own copy and I absolutely love the cover, it’s adorable and fits this book so well!
