Praise for The Love Interest

"This sci-fi young adult novel is the answer to all of our cliché love triangle woes. . . . If you're looking for something funny, action-packed, and romantic this summer, then this is your next read." --PBS Newshour

"There's a Hunger Games vibe here to be sure--a deadly teen-on-teen competition--and this is packed with similar questions of morality. High stakes, well-developed characters, and an LGBTQ slant on the classic spy story make it all the more intriguing. Stock up--this one has something for everyone." --Booklist, starred review

"In this subversive take on the quintessential YA love triangle, two guys--the clean-cut boy next door and the brooding bad boy--compete for a girl's affections. . . . Dietrich's debut is impressive, provocative, and a clever take on well-worn romantic tropes. . . . while the thriller elements add tension and numerous surprises." --Publishers Weekly

"Caden is a spy. . . . His competition is Dylan, a dark-souled Bad who's the dreamiest boy Caden's ever seen. . . . Caden doesn't intend to lose--but no one prepared him for the way Dyl makes him feel. . . . fans of spy fiction and LGBTQ titles will find the novel worth reading." --School Library Journal
