Then there’s Sadie who is a girl that has a tough outer shell that she doesn’t really want to let people in. She’s got her circle of friends and that’s it…no new entries…until Andrew that is. What starts as an almost adversarial relationship, Sadie has to train Andrew on the fountain area of the restaurant they both work at, eventually turns into a friendship which leads to romance….with lots of snarky comments, baseball, whipped cream, ice cream and cough syrup in-between.
I can honestly say that from the first page I was drawn into each of our H/h lives. I felt Andrew’s awkwardness and his need to be on his own without his helicopter mom and an “incident” that he’s trying to get a fresh start from…and let me tell you, this “incident” made me snort laugh!!! Sadie on the other hand has some secrets she’s hiding that really explain how she became who she is and my heart hurt a little for her…but once Andrew enters her realm, all bets are off!
The writing in this book is pure Meghan Quinn gold! All the characters are so well developed including the secondary ones like Smilly…that girl…wow, along with the storyline. It all fits together so perfectly and once I got into the story, I didn’t want to put it down. This is yet another reason why Meghan Quinn is an automatic 1-click author for me…she’s never let me down!
Andrew is trying to made a name for himself. Eager to learn and work towards his goals, he gets a job at Friendly's as a fountain worker. On his first day, he's trained by Sadie, who seems to have a chip on her should and wants nothing to do with him. Although Andrew isn't having that. He's used to his charm winning people over and he just knows he can win over Sadie. Plus, there's something about her that just makes him want to be around her and to make her smile.
Sadie hasn't had the best year and honestly she isn't in the best place in her life right now. She has a strong support system with her friends and she doesn't want or need anyone else in her life. She wants to stay drama free and out of the spotlight. When she has to train Andrew, she's annoyed but at the same time, she can see that his charm actually gets to her but she sure as hell fights it.
These two are complete opposites and that's what makes them so relatable and likable. Sadie is fire and frisk and Andrew is a charismatic geek with a dirty mouth and a heart of gold. They completely balance each other out. Their path to each other isn't easy. The past holds them back for a while and all you want to do is reach out to them and hug them and tell them how perfect they are for each other. To fight for each other, no matter what.
While I love the humor in the books, it's the small things that Andrew did that won me over. Of course, he's that lovable dork who makes you want to love calculators, computers and all things nerdy. He makes it all look sexy but what's the sexiest about him is his heart and how much he wants to make Sadie happy.
"I want to be the man who raises you up, who helps you accomplish your goals. Not the man who hides you."
And that right there, melted me. I've never wanted my own personal sexy nerd until Andrew.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. If you are looking for laughter, insane humor, and a bunch of crazy friends who you'd die to be a part of, then this is absolutely the book for you!
“…that’s the problem with shame. Shame doesn’t like company. Shame’s not something that likes to be shared.”
Meghan Quinn’s ability to make me laugh holds no bounds, this author just has to type the word “the” and I’m laughing…seriously though, Meghan Quinn is just a natural when it comes to romantic comedy. After reading Co-Wrecker I will never look at baseboards, a marriage proposal, liberal Europeans, ice-cream and bats without bursting out laughing, seriously I had floods of tears, but tears from hysterical laughter. This was the perfect book at the perfect time, laughs were desperately needed and Meghan Quinn more than delivered.
“She lost her socks. Couldn’t find them.”
“Oh yeah? ...Did you search her vagina well enough? Or are you going to take a second look?”
I love a geek, especially a glasses wearing geek, I was one…once…but nowhere near as attractive or outgoing as Andrew. Despite his passion for calculators, Derek Jeter and Tron our Andrew has personality. Andrews personality was infectious, his innate wit and comedic timing was perfect and the dialogue was sincere yet cheeky. I loved everything about Andrew, there was nothing to hate, he was the kind of character that you just click with, he rubs off on you, in all the right ways (wink wink).
“He’s kind, sweet, handsome, smart, and has a good head on his shoulders. He’s a four-leaf clover in a field of weeds; you don’t let men like him slip through your fingers.”
Sadie is a woman that came from a rough background yet made the most of it. Sadie was extremely intelligent, was valedictorian, got a scholarship to Cornel…until she gave it up. Sadie had her reasons and now she finds herself just existing. Sadie has lost her smiles, lost her personality and has turned into a bristly, cough syrup drinking, sour puss that needs to find her true self once again.
“Within twenty-four hours, he’s firmly placed himself in my life when I believed there were no vacancies.”
Andrew and Sadie’s paths cross when Andrew takes a summer job at the restaurant where Sadie works. Training newbies is Sadie’s idea of hell, even if they are decent eye candy. While there is plenty of candy in the toppings they find themselves using every day, the only candy these two are interested in is each other. Sadie has baggage, trust issues and is closed off. Andrew is persistent, compassionate, understanding but sometimes that is not enough, sometimes tough love is the only love.
“I love you, Andrew, but you’ve never been able to be just friends with a girl. You always hand over your heart.”
Andrew and Sadie were perfect for one and other, they complemented one and other but Andrew was far from a settler, he didn’t want a piece of Sadie, he wanted all of her. I adored Andrew for forcing Sadie to love herself first and foremost, to sort herself and her issues out. Meghan Quinn delivers a book littered with some fantastic side characters that all had their parts to play. I loved Tucker and he was another guy with a huge heart and I would love to see him get his happy ever after, the guy deserves it.
In summary, this was a cute, swoon-worthy romance that was light on angst and huge in heart. Hilarious in places and sensitive when needed. Another winner from Meghan Quinn.
