Any Boy but You
(North Pole, Minnesota #1)
by Julie Hammerle Publication Date: February 13, 2017 Publisher: Entangled: Crush
Elena Chestnut has been chatting with an anonymous boy late into the night. It’s a very You’ve Got Mail situation, and she has no idea who he is. He can’t be Oliver Prince, hot-and-bashful son of the family running the rival sporting goods store. Their fancy sales strategies are driving Elena’s family out of business. Elena’s mystery boy has teamed up with her in their latest sales strategy, an augmented reality game, to help her win the grand-prize plane tickets. Money’s so tight Elena’s going to miss senior year spring break with her friends if she can’t win this game.
The girl Oliver's fallen head-over-heels for online had better not be Elena Chestnut. She's his angry, vindictive Latin tutor, the daughter of his dad’s business rival, and the one girl he’d never even think of kissing. She’s definitely not his online crush, because that girl is funny, sweet, and perfect.
When Oliver asks to reveal their names at the Valentine’s Day dance, their IRL relationship will either ruin what they have online, or they’ll discover just how thin the line between love and hate really is.

What can we expect from you in the future?
My writing future (at least for the next year) is all about North Pole, Minnesota. I have three books coming out in 2017, which seems impossible, but that’s what’s happening.Any Boy but Youis the first book in a series set in this small town. The second book comes out in July, and the third one will be released sometime in the fall. I’m working on revising book two right now, which I adore. I love Oliver and Elena (fromAny Boy but You), but the couple in the next book—they may be my favorite romantic pairing I’ve ever written. Not to play favorites or anything! That book is set in North Pole in the summer, and the third book is set at Christmastime. It’s a lot of fun playing in this world, and having supporting characters pop in and out when needed. Some characters even take on more importance as the series progresses. Characters with bit roles inAny Boy but You become romantic leads in subsequent books. See if you can guess who…
