2017 NEW ADULT READING CHALLENGE | Book Set In the Summer
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.
I read this book as a buddy read with Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much, so go to her blog on the 30th to check her review of this book.
Guys, if you don’t know by now, shame on you, but I love Meghan Quinn’s books! And this one was no exception. I can always count on her writing to make me laugh like a crazy woman, even in the middle of the street. Co-Wrecker is told in dual POV, from Andrew and Sadie’s point of views, and both character have such distinct voices. The writing is witty and hilarious, even if some of Sadie’s chapters are a bit darker. AMAZING!
Andrew is without a doubt one of my favorites male main characters ever! He’s right up there with Hollis, eheh. I’m a sucker for hot nerds, and Andrew is definitly nerdy and he’s most certainly HOT. Also, he’s so much fun! He says the most absurd things and he cracked me up all the time.
Sadie was tougher to love, because she’s more reserved, and she also had a lot of bad stuff happening to her. But as she lightens up when she starts hanging out with Andrew, and her personality shines, it was impossible not to like her. She was sarcastic and self assured and she was the perfect complement for goofy Andrew.
The romance was pretty cool and hot. I really liked how Andrew saw right through Sadie, even when she tried to hide herself. But I also liked that they pushed each other, and that he wasn’t willing to let her give up on herself. This was the best kind of romance!
So, people, have you read any of Meghan’s books? No problem!
Read this one!!!! 😀 I’ll assure you that you won’t be sorry. This is a fun story with some harder tones and great, amazing characters. READ IT!
About the Author:
Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.
Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
