Libby Garrett is addicted to Owen Jackson’s hot lovin’. But the sexy, popular college basketball player doesn’t appreciate all of Libby’s awesomeness. He refuses to be exclusive or even admit to people that they’re dating. The relationship is ruining Libby and she’s the only one who can’t see it.

When Libby’s behavior spirals completely out of control, her best friend Avery Shaw and the rest of the Science Squad stage an intervention hoping to cure Libby of her harmful Owen addiction. They put her through her very own Twelve Step program—Owen’s Anonymous—and recruit the help of a sexy, broody, hard as nails coffee man to be her official sponsor.

Adam Koepp has watched Libby Garrett for years. How could he not notice the sassy girl with the purple skateboard and helmet plastered with cat stickers? But in all the years he’s crushed on her, Libby has failed to take notice of him. Why would she when he was just a nobody high school drop out who served her apple cider several times a week? Especially when she was hooking up with a guy like Owen Jackson—a guy with a college scholarship and more abs than Kyle Hamilton.

Adam finally gets the chance to meet Libby when his co-worker Avery Shaw recruits him to take Libby on the journey of a lifetime. With his ability to play Bad Cop and his experience with the Twelve Step program he’s the perfect candidate to be Libby’s sponsor. But will he be able to keep his personal feelings out of the matter and really help her the way she needs? And will Libby hate him when he forces her to take an honest look at herself?


OMG! As in oh my gosh! This book is so damn good that I’m still having this Libby Garrett Intervention hangover and I’m sure it will last for a very long time. I’m even wondering why I’m still breathing after not reading something from Kelly for a long time. (so guilty)

The Libby Garret Intervention is a sequel/companion to the Avery Shaw Experiment but it could also be read as stand alone. But I wouldn’t recommend such, because, dang! Avery Shaw Experiment is as fantastic as this book too. Oh Grayson..<3 (He has an appearance in this book too!!!)

I honestly don’t know how to write this review right now because I’m still in my “swooning” mode today. Actually, that’s partly the reason. This book is just so dang great that I don’t know how to write this review for it might not do justice to it. Imagine, just at first chapter but it’s already a swoon worthy scene? (though, that was because of Owen) I’ve been waiting for this story eversince I’ve read the part where Libby harassed Owen in that photo booth, haha. And the waiting is really worth it. Though my first assumption about this book was different, I still can’t believe how the author’s mind works, because this was greater than what I’ve imagined. And also, this is the very first book that made me want to get inside it and be one of the science squad (though I don’t like science that much, haha) so bad.

And just like Avery’s story, this was also told from both the main characters (Libby and Adam) point of view. It’s always great to know what both of them thinks to each other eh?, especially Adam’s. (swoon) And knowing Kelly, this book is so easy to read because of the words and terms she used. Though, Libby’s “language” wasn’t part of it, haha. Gluteus maximus and holy hyena feces 😀

All of its characters were natural, especially Adam. Which I first assumed as a “too perfect” character. But the ever unpredictable Kelly added something in his character that made him so vulnerable yet so likeable (that’s forever in my eyes) and so realistic. Libby on the other hand, oh well, what can I say? I just love the girl. But what’s disappointing is she has to change because of that blonde adonis Owen. Grrr! To think that I almost (as in almost) fell in love with him. So yeah, from being a cute, gorgeous, handsome, to being a j*rk. I should never trust anyone with that name again (haha, I’m really taking this seriously).

What I also love about this story is that it wasn’t just about romance with science and a little humor but it also tackles a very serious topic. I don’t want to elaborate that one because I’m afraid I will turn mushy-mushy and cry again. Yeah, this story did made me cry. Huhu Adam. Why is the world (or maybe the author? haha) so cruel? But it was also rewarding to know what happens to Adam afterwards.

That’s it. I really need to end this or I’ll end up crying myself to sleep. Read it and be ready to fall in love. And oh, it’s official, Adam is already promoted and was added to my list of book crushes, haha. (wink)
