Pride and Prejudice meets Veronica Mars in this new Love Me, I’m Famous novella.
I had always thought Owen Whitfield fit the mold of the brainless jock perfectly. Group of idiot friends? Check. Vapid girlfriend? Check. Ego bigger than the moon? Check. As long as he stayed out of my way, coexisting with his kind was doable. Until one day our worlds collided, changing everything. He pissed me off so badly that I had no choice but to give him a taste of his own medicine. Little did I know that my act of revenge would come back to bite me in the ass. How was I supposed to know Owen would turn out to be the best partner in crime I could hope for?
I never paid much attention to Kimberly Dawson, but I knew who she was. Ice Queen was what we called her. She was gorgeous, no one could deny that. But she was also a condescending bitch which was enough reason for me to stay the hell away from her. She thought I was a dumb jock and that was okay until she came crashing into my life. Against my better judgment, I let her embroil me in her shenanigans, forcing us to spend too much time together. It was my doom. She got under my skin, she was all I could think about. I never thought I would be the knight in shining armor to anyone, not until she came along.
I think I should attach a permanent notice here that said: I read this book as a buddy read with Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much. 😀 You can check out her review of this novella here.
This novella took me by surprise, because I enjoyed it so much! I haven’t read the first book of the series, but that didn’t mean I enjoyed this novella any less. The writing was on point and funny, and the action was super fast paced.
I really like the overall theme of this book, and the Kimmy and Owen’s journey to find out the truth about a certain event. Again, their journey was fun and exciting and dangerous :D, did I mention fun and sexy?
I was really in awe by how much I liked both these characters in such a short span of time. They complemented each other so well, and I was giddy about their exchanges, because they were cute.
All and all, I had fun reading this one, and I might even contemplate reading the rest of this series 🙂 .
