Totally late with this one considering how much I loves me some Meghan Quinn! The Virgin Romance Novelist will forever be my favorite romantic comedic book. The puff of smoke from her cooter is comedic gold and I laughed until I had tears coming from my eyes and my cheeks hurt.
Now with that said, I am always looking for her books to be just as funny as that one. She’s set the bar so darn high that I tend to be disappointed when I get one that doesn’t measure up. Not to say they are bad, they are just different or not as funny to me. This one, Co-Wecker, fell into the not as funny category.
Blurb: What do ice cream and Sadie Montgomery have in common? They’re both ice cold, but one taste is never enough.
I wanted to be friends — I would have even settled for her seeing me as anything but a nerd — but there was no getting through. So just like any hard-headed, red-blooded man out there, I made up my mind.
I’d make my coworker fall for me.
I’d like to say it was simple, but like every other epic love story, all it took was one drunken night and a lot of naked courage to get the girl. For a moment, at least.
Love with a coworker is never simple, especially since Sadie’s trying to keep us on the low. Not to mention her persistent ex-boyfriend who won’t leave her alone. But I’ve never been good at giving up, and I don’t plan to start now.
The whole thing is a recipe for a rocky road, but I plan to eat the whole gallon, no matter how bad the brain freeze.
Written in dual POV, I loved reading Andrew. I wouldn’t call him a “hot nerd” maybe a sexy intellectual but nerd, not so much. His obsession with the gym and the fact that he was called…well you’ll see, I won’t tell that part, totally qualifies him as a hot piece of tail. If nerd was what she was going for he was too cool to actually be one. He had his moments but they were more endearing than anything. The Bat chapter had me giggling my @$$ off because I totally felt his pain. With his dirty mouth and witty comments, Andrew is the guy you can’t help but fall in love with and you definitely will
Sadie…not so much. She wasn’t a bad character and I get that she was “damaged” but she annoyed me at times and surprised me at others. Her life was definitely filled with drama but to be so young she felt more like a depressed middle-aged woman that a college sophomore. That and the fact that she and her friends drank like fish, but I guess that’s what you’re supposed to do in college. Anywho, she grew on me as I continued to read but I loved Andrew so much more.
This was a pretty quick read and not really a romantic comedy although it had some funny parts. For me, to be a RomCom I should have spent more time laughing and swooning. I would give it a strong 4 if you’re looking to bust a gut laughing this isn’t it but if you want a sweet quick read this will do the trick!
