The one guy Bailey Rydell can’t stand is actually the boy of her dreams—she just doesn’t know it yet.

Classic movie fan Bailey “Mink” Rydell has spent months crushing on a witty film geek she only knows online as Alex. Two coasts separate the teens until Bailey moves in with her dad, who lives in the same California surfing town as her online crush.

Faced with doubts (what if he’s a creep in real life—or worse?), Bailey doesn’t tell Alex she’s moved to his hometown. Or that she’s landed a job at the local tourist-trap museum. Or that she’s being heckled daily by the irritatingly hot museum security guard, Porter Roth—a.k.a. her new archnemesis. But life is whole lot messier than the movies, especially when Bailey discovers that tricky fine line between hate, love, and whatever it is she’s starting to feel for Porter.

And as the summer months go by, Bailey must choose whether to cling to a dreamy online fantasy in Alex or take a risk on an imperfect reality with Porter. The choice is both simpler and more complicated than she realizes, because Porter Roth is hiding a secret of his own: Porter is Alex…Approximately.

After I read the blurb, I knew I would love the book, the cover sealed the deal.

Bailey often talks with her online friend, Alex. Alex, her online friend lives In California, halfway across the country. Bailey then moves to live with her dad who lives in California.

As days went by she got a job at a museum.                                                                

Not only was it boring, she had a mutual hate to Porter Roth, a handsome and ignorant worker at the museum. After a few days and weeks, she and Porter develop a friendship and soon feelings for each other.

Bailey did not know that Porter is her online friend, Alex. And Bailey is Porter’s online friend Mink…YEP! I KNOW RIGHT! There were definitely moments that made me want to scream at them, like, THAT’S HER and THAT’S HIM. The entire book definitely got me on the edge of my seat.

At one point, my friend told me to stop shrieking because I was up to the middle of the book. Trust me. It. Was. So. Good. And Porter Roth, holy guacamole. *Turns on air conditioner*


Alex Approximately, was a super fun book to read. I read the book during winter cuddled in blankets, hot cocoa and with the heat running, while there was a snowstorm outside.

Nevertheless, the summer setting has made me feel like it is summer outside, when it’s the complete opposite. 

This book was so cute and swoony (*ahem..more Porter please)  and SOSOSOSO FLUFFY!!!!! Alex approximately is definitely a MUST read !!
