About the Book

Bad at Love by Gabriela Martins

Genre: Young Adult Contemporary Romance
Publishing date: August 2nd, 2022

Rep: Brazilian, Brazilian-American, Pansexual, & Demisexual


Ever since Daniel moved to L.A. from Brazil to join the band Mischief & Mayhem, he’s become the tabloids’ bad boy. Paparazzi follow him and girls swoon over him . . . except for Sasha, who hates bad boys. When a chance encounter brings them together, Sasha sees an opportunity to get close to Daniel and write a story that will make a name for herself at the celebrity gossip magazine where she interns. But Daniel is surprisingly sweet and extremely cute—could she be falling for him?

The truth is: Daniel is hiding something. When Sasha discovers his secret, will she follow her heart or deliver the hottest story of the summer?

I enjoyed this YA contemporary. I liked the pop culture references and the setting. I felt the story to be relatable in a lot of ways in how social media portrays celebrity. Those of us on the outside of fame tend to believe everything we see on the internet and forget that they are real people. I liked how this story shed light on how that affects both the inside and outside of fame.

Sasha is presented with the opportunity to receive a scholarship, the one thing that could change her life, but in order to be in the running she needs to expose Daniel, the hottest celebrity. When a chance encounter puts her right in his path she soon realizes getting the scoop may not be as easy as it sounds.

I liked this plot, characters, and cultures we see in this YA contemporary. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a light and fluffy quick paced read.
