Per her 537 rules, Harper Campbell keeps her life tidy—academically and socially. But the moment Sterling Lane transfers into her tiny boarding school, her twin brother gets swept up in Sterling’s pranks and schemes and nearly gets expelled. Harper knows it’s Sterling’s fault, and to protect her brother, she vows to take him down. As she exposes his endless school violations, he keeps striking back, framing her for his own infractions. Worst of all, he’s charmed the administration into thinking he’s harmless, and only Harper sees him for the troublemaker he absolutely is.
As she breaks rule after precious rule in her battle of wits against Sterling and tension between them hits a boiling point, she’s horrified to discover that perhaps the two of them aren’t so different. And maybe she doesn't entirely hate him after all. Teaming up with Sterling to save her brother might be the only way to keep from breaking the most important rule—protecting Cole.
Harper has 537 rules for her life and believes all should be followed for everything to be perfect. Her rules cause a few fights with her twin brother, Cole and her nickname at school is “Harper the Hag”. When Sterling Lane enters her life, he is constantly breaking her rules. She is furious and wants to stay as far away from him as possible at all times. There’s just one problem. He is Cole’s roommate and the two of them quickly become friends. Will Harper be able to stay away from Sterling? Will he be able to show her that sometimes in order to really live you have to break your rules?
I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. I immediately had a dislike for Harper because she comes across as really uptight with all of her rules. If the character development hadn’t been excellent throughout, I don’t think I would have finished this book. As it is really well done, I ended up being okay with Harper by the end. I’ll admit I was rooting for Sterling the whole time with how he would rile Harper up. I could tell he would eventually win her over. This was a good YA romance.
