Seventeen-year-old Claire Collins has a plan: get into college and leave North Carolina behind. What she doesn’t have is an idea for how to get rid of the local football star and womanizer extraordinaire—Adam Meade, who she can’t even avoid (despite many efforts), because Claire’s dad is the high school football coach.
Seventeen-year-old Adam Meade never fails. He always gets what he wants… until he meets Claire, the new girl who leaves him unnerved, pissed off, and confused. But there’s something about her that he just can’t resist…
With the bite of lemon meringue pie and the sugar of sweet tea, Surviving Adam Meade is a sexy and compelling young adult novel about two strong-willed people who think they know what they want but have no idea what they need.

Surviving Adam Meade is an enemies to lovers story. Claire is forced to change high schools her senior year, starting in a new school leaving behind her entire life. Also, she’s coach’s daughter what leads her to meet Adam. Quarterback, heartbreaker and a bit of an asshole.
Their chemistry is clear, they both prank and attack verbally each other (the use of sarcasm is so good, I loved it). They realised they like each other but are afraid of their future together.
The first part of the book, all the banter and bickering is, for me, the best part of the book. Although it loses its force when they start dating. I expected it to be more passionate. Also, the jumps between scenes inside chapters are to fast. One paragraph you have Claire in class and the next she’s at home, without making a big separation between them. It was weird for me while reading.
Overall, I truly liked it. Both main characters are funny and sort of real-life related. Perfect read for summer.
