Crush Control by Jennifer Jabaley

Willow has spent most of her life as her mother's sidekick in a popular Las Vegas hypnotism show. So when she and her mom move back to their sleepy southern hometown to start over, she thinks she's in for a life of quiet normalcy. Except that her new life turns out to be anything but, when she kinda sorta hypnotizes Quinton, the hottest guy on the football team, to fall madly, deeply, head over heels in love with her. But what started out as an innocent way to make her best friend, Max, jealous soon gets way out of hand, and Willow begins to wonder if the mind - and more importantly, the heart - is something you can really control. (Goodreads)

      It's totally corny, but I was hypnotized by CRUSH CONTROL. It was interesting, funny and filled with fluff. It was also realistic because it dealt with topics I could relate to, too. My favorite character was Willow. She was so hilarious. Her life had definitely been unlike any other and she did pay for it's awesomeness. She was insecure after hiding behind her mom these past few years and understandably wanted it to be different this time back. She gets pulled into the spotlight and decides that she doesn't want to be without it. She makes a lot of bad decisions throughout the book and she doesn't realize them until she has to resolve them. She learned that most things aren't what they seem and to just accept others as they are.
Her and Max's relationship was sadly almost nonexistent until the end of book. I liked Max. He was sweet and unique. They had secret inside jokes and he just knew her. It would've been ridiculous of them to not even give each other a shot just once.
     Crush Control was a very memorable book and Willow was a n infinitely more memorable female character. From Willow's crazy eyes to her smushed-faced dog, it is because of this book that I will probably laugh every time I see the M&M commercial and smile every time I listen to Taylor Swift. Crush Control is a debut not to be missed.
