On seeing this book we were initially reluctant to feature it in NewGen, our teen/YA category - so we thought we would ask a handful of our teenagers in our Reader Review panel for their thoughts. As you can see from their comments it got a really positive response but please - our advice is only for 15+ readers.

Holly Hughes I found Irresistible really enjoyable and entertaining to read. I would definitely recommend it to friends. It involves emotions that every girl experiences as a teenager, which is why it's easy to relate to. Click here to read the full review...

Hannah Glenton The story was nicely structured and well written....I really enjoyed this book as it had mature content but not too much, which kept it from being inappropriate, whilst keeping it sassy and fresh. Click here to read the full review...

Darcy Elliman Gripping and a fun read which keeps you hooked. I loved it. Click here to read the full review...

Safiyah Afghan I believe that this book should be at least for 16+ because of the strong language used and the topics discussed in this book. Click here to read the full review...

Gemma Bees When I began reading it I was slightly worried about the passionate nature of the book, sometimes I find it to be too much and simply embarrassing. I didn’t feel like that at all with this book. This has a genuine story to follow and these passionate scenes haven’t just been thrown in, they’re part of the story and don’t feel the slightest bit unnecessary. It is very well written too... It’s just an all-round brilliant book. Click here to read the full review...

Chloe Sheehan This is a perfect read for any teenager because if you are down or have had a bad day it gives you a bit of hope, love and interest. I really recommend this book, I look forward to her next. Click here to read the full review...

Eloise Greenberry Irresistible is the title of this book and that says it all; you cannot put this book down.....this book is suited for teens, it is a life guide for how not to make stupid mistakes, and to appreciate what you have, although I would recommend it for 15+ due to the passionate scenes.

Irresistible by Liz Bankes

When Mia gets a summer job in a country club, it's a chance to see into a whole world of privilege and passion she's never imagined. Thankfully there's Dan to keep her feet on the ground. He's laid-back, funny and could be the perfect person to go travelling with when the summer's over.

But behind everything that happens in the summer, there's Jamie. Wealthy and sexy, he's got everything he could ever want, and enjoys nothing more than messing with people's lives for his own entertainment. Mia knows that any relationship with Jamie is a bad idea,
but as she's drawn into his dangerous and madly exciting world, she finds the one thing she can't stop is herself.

About the Author

Liz Bankes

From an early age Liz wanted to be a Thunderbird. Upon discovering that they were fictional and wooden she decided to be a writer. She wrote her GCSE coursework about a
woman who cooks people in pies and later won the Tunbridge Wells Girls Grammar School creative writing prize.
She went on to study book-reading at some universities in order to avoid getting a job and to spend the next four years in pyjamas. After working on a building magazine and a science magazine, she had the wonderful and very exciting chance to write a story.
As well as all book-related things, she also likes comedy and cats.
