My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I loved this story!! LOVED IT!!
I haven't read many stories that make a hero out of a nerd, but Meghan Quinn has me desperate for more heroes just like Andrew. His character was phenomenal and, in all honesty, he's the reason for all five stars!!
"He's a four-leaf clover in a field of weeds; you don't let men like him slip through your fingers."
Andrew was that and so much more. He was kind and considerate, sweet and loyal, compassionate and understanding, obviously a bit of a geek, but he was also hot, sexy, dominant, funny and swoon-worthy. And let's not forget he was in possession of a cannon cock .
Sadie had lived through some hard knocks and her reluctance to trust or invite people into her life was understandable (to a point). Did it grate on my nerves? Yup. I couldn't stand how she treated the lovable Andrew. Did I want her to be more transparent? Honest and open? REAL??? Of course. Andrew deserved everything good and I loved reading about how his patience slowly won Sadie over. I kinda wish she wasn't such a tough nut to crack because it took away from her overall effect on me. I could barely tolerate her but I guess that's just how their story had to be written.
If I were to pinpoint a part I didn't like, it comes down to the one line of the story that I found repugnant.
"Maybe you should have thought of my potential before you decided to impregnate me."
It implied that the man alone was responsible for contraception and I personally disagree with that notion wholeheartedly. Not when we live in an age where we as women have control over our bodies (at least in North America) and can protect ourselves.
Regardless, I gave this story five stars. Obviously what irked me wasn't enough to detract from my overall love for this book. Or maybe Andrew was just that awesome! Did I already mention his huge heart? Or the fact that he was hilarious? With lines such as:
"Oh hey, what do you know, my balls shriveled right up into a little labia."
I lost count of my laugh-out-loud moments, whether from the situations, the banter, or the inner monologues.
This story had an amazing plot, a fantastic hero, and was a little light on character development. Nothing too deep here. I adored the side characters and I couldn't help but want to learn more about them, especially Emma and Tucker. Shoot, how did I forget how much my heart hurt for poor Tucker? He was swoon-worthy in his own right with a massive heart to go along with his awesomeness. I'd love for him to get a happy ending too. Maybe with Emma *hint* I'm just sayin'. Thank you Meghan for such a beautifully funny and endearing story and I'm excited for what you'll create for us next!!
