Sypnosis:
What started as a DEAL, unexpectedly turned into LOVE.

Mars Ochoco is your typical, hormonal high school student-socially awkward, insecure at times, and ma-drama to death. She isn’t a popular girl either. The only thing that’s going for her? She’s charming. Ang problema nga lang, she doesn’t know how to work her charm on the boys.
Things take a sudden turn when she gets rejected by Zeke. Ang hindi niya alam, ang heartbreak na ito mismo ang magdadala sa kanya kay Mark Villareal, one of the most popular boys in school. He offers Mars an unconventional deal that she can’t seem to refuse: tuturuan niya si Mars how to kiss to help her win her crush back!
Mars eventually accepts Mark’s proposal. After all, Mars has nothing to lose but everything to gain. At isa pa, wala naman halong feelings at attachment ang deal na ito ‘di ba? Or wala nga ba talaga?

Review:

As what stated above, this story started as a dare. I know right, it sounded so cliché,and I don’t even know what made me read this book. But I was glad that I did!

I was just starting with the first chapter but the scenes we’re already so sweet. Not too mushy and too corny but is really sweet. And surprisingly, it didn’t annoy me. All the scenes we’re perfectly executed and the execution of lines we’re great. The author really made me imagine that it is really Mark (main male character) who’s talking. What I mean is that, she made all those male character sounds male, and not gay lol.

I wasn’t fully impressed with the story, so I am giving it a 4 star rating. The way the writer writes the story made me think that she’s really just writing it just to have fun. No offense meant, but I think this story isn’t really meant to be published. Urgh, this is so frustrating, I don’t even know how to say it without confusing you, hehehe. Well, just forget what I said and just read the book. Hehehe. I think the published story seems better than the wattpad edition. Hmmm.

I don’t remember being confused while reading the story. But those simple things that could be done without complicating it were visible in the story. That one did annoy me. Oh well, I think that’s natural in every Tagalog Romance novels. And oh, I almost forgot, I was really dumbfounded on the part wherein their teacher is giving a love advice to the female main character. What the? Seriously?

Any complains about the characters? Mars (female main character) character is really crazy. I mean, she’s very tough and I almost see her as a bitch. And I somewhat like that, ehehehe. The only complain that I have on her was on how she pitied herself just to make Mark change his decision on breaking up with her (oh yeah, so sorry for the major bummer, hehe). And about Mark? Well, I don’t really like his character, and I don’t even hate it. Maybe I’m in the middle? Hehehe. But seriously, Mark’s character didn’t made me squeal for his sweetness unlike the previous stories I’ve read. He wasn’t that heartthrob for me. But I don’t really like how he acted like a jerk to Mars. Duh! I almost want to kick his eggs and scramble it dude! (so sorry for the mean thought, hahaha)

The ending is really depressing. I remember that I almost threw my cellphone (for I was reading the wattpad using the cp app) because of the supper hanging ending. And after knowing that it has a second book, I quickly murdered the search button.

The story made me laugh, fall in love, annoyed, pissed off, and cry. Read the story and join my miseries. The story is still open to read in wattpad, the link is provided. Enjoy!

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
