When Kate Bailey lets her best friend, Alana, talk her into joining their high school's podcast she did not expect to find herself as the host, or to enjoy answering calls and giving advice on the air, but she is actually pretty good at it--but when she gets an anonymous call from a boy (possibly Diego Martinez) about his secret feelings for a girl (probably Alana) she is faced with a problem, because she is developing feelings for Diego herself.

Listen to Your Heart was as fun and endearing as any of West's books, and I really appreciated how full Kate's life was with her love of the lake, family, strong friendships, and effort to grow as a person by delving into new interests.

Kate would much rather ride her WaveRunner around the lake in solitude rather than hosting a podcast, but somehow that’s just what she was going to do for a whole semester. Joined by her best friend Alana, their podcast focuses on advice and receives live calls from viewers. Their first day turned out to be a bust, but it progressively improved, and so did Kate’s speaking skills. But that wasn’t the only thing that has changed after Kate started the podcast. Diego, her best friend’s crush, started calling in asking for advice on love hinting that he himself has a crush. At first, that was great news, since Kate was already helping Alana get closer to him. But soon, she realizes that she was falling for him the whole time. Is it worth Kate risking her relationship with her best friend for someone who probably doesn’t even love her? This was a really good book with all the character development and an interesting plot that kept me guessing ‘till the end. I really enjoyed the two main characters and really connected with Kate. However, it was a little predictable and some parts didn’t flow very smoothly. Rating:4/5

A fun romance book about love and friendship along with secrets that could change everything. For fans of Jennie Han and Maurene Goo.

When Kate is talked into taking a podcast class with her best friend, Alana, she would have never dreamed that she would be a host. Kate is not a people person, she is more of a "get on the lake and have fun by herself" person. Kate's family owns a marina on the lake. Alana is more of a people person and has a way with flirting with guys that Kate does not. When Kate finds she is falling for her best friend's crush, the predicament she is in becomes more interesting when "the crush" begins calling into the podcast "Not My Problem". You will have fun getting to know Kate, Alana, Diego (Alana's crush) and Frank (the rich boy). A great, fun and fast YA read. Perfect for the beach or just relaxing.

I have liked all the Kasie West books I have read so far, so I was looking forward to reading this new book and was not disappointed. Kate (Kat on the podcast) is a very likeable protagonist and the plot that develops brings to mind movies like Sleepless In Seattle and the Shakespeare play A Midsummer Night's Dream. There are missed cues and miscommunications, but all is worked out in the end like your favorite sitcom. A great summer read.
