Perfect for fans of Stephanie Perkins, Sarah Dessen, and Susane Colasanti, The Art of Lainey tells the story of how, with the help of The Art of War, Lainey plots the perfect plan to get her boyfriend back. But is getting him back really what she wants?

Soccer star Lainey Mitchell is gearing up to spend an epic summer with her amazing boyfriend, Jason, when he suddenly breaks up with her—no reasons, no warnings, and in public no less! Lainey is more than crushed, but with help from her friend Bianca, she resolves to do whatever it takes to get Jason back.

And that's when Lainey and Bianca stumble across a copy of The Art of War. With just one glance, the girls are sure they can use the book to lure Jason back into Lainey's arms. So Lainey channels her inner warlord, recruiting spies to gather intel and persuading her coworker Micah to pose as her new boyfriend to make Jason jealous.

After a few "dates," it looks like her plan is going to work! But now her relationship with Micah is starting to feel like more than just a game. Can fighting for what she wants help Lainey figure out what she really needs?
I always wanted to read Sun Szu, but never really get passed the first chapter. But, when I saw The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes, I wanted to read it. I mean, I simply could not ignore the gorgeous cover. Besides, I do love books with coffee/food related. And I thought that maybe I could get through some of Sun Szu wisdom without reading The Art of War ;)

I absolutely adore this book. The story was cute. I enjoyed reading Lainey and Bianca's plan to win Lainey's ex back. It was very interesting to see how they would apply The Art of War by Sun Szu into Lainey's strategy to win Jason back. There were tons of moments that made me laugh out loud. I must admit that I wasn't a fan of Lainey at first what with her attitude. But she grew up on me. It was fun to watch Lainey matured throughout the story. And Micah! He's cute (despite his mohawk appearance) and fun to be with. He's one of the reasons why I love the book so much. Lainey and Micah were so cute together!

The Art of Lainey is definitely a cute, fun and fluffy read. I'm looking forward to read more from the author.
