Then it happened.
For a reason I will never understand, this author decided to include a derogatory joke pertaining to children with disabilities.
Immediately after that, I didn't think much of Laney, but I didn't want to give up. I hoped she would redeem herself and I would get over it.
The story was charming. But with the writing and rewriting, I couldn't get past the fact this author, editor and beta readers thought it was a good idea to leave this in.
As I read more, Laney seemed less like the cute, strong funny girl and more like someone who was a taker not a giver.
When I finished, I came to the conclusion, Clarissa was the only character who had any common sense.
I hope in the future, this author will learn more about writing smart humor and will refrain from going for the cheap laugh at the expense of our society's most vulnerable.
Theo deserved more.
Readers deserved more.
Theo is a good guy who doesn’t get all the girls. He doesn’t want all the girls. He wants the ONE and all the emotions that comes along with it. He’s not a one night stand kind of guy and like his roommates.
Theo meets the outspoken and spontaneous Laney outside in the dark at a party. Even though they can’t see each other’s faces the connection is immediately. They unload on each other thinking they will never meet again. Well think again.
The second time the meet each other I was done for. Theo and Laney had me. Hook, line and sinker.
Their friendship and courtship was filled with so much humor, romance and laugh out loud moments. Starting with an instagram page. It was truly a beautiful friendship in the making and as they started to spend more time together, stripping layers of each other, they both discovered how special this bond they had created was. The build up was flawlessly written and as the story and their friendship progressed I started yearning for them to just give in and KISS. The pent up tension was insane and the reward was explosive. So hot and so worth it.
As opposites as Theo and Laney are they complement each other perfectly. Their families and friends especially Theo’s 3 older sisters and Laney’s mother and bestie Devin are fun and deliver memorable moments too.
The Guy On The Right is the perfect feel good, laugh out loud, swoon worthy summer book. Strangers who become best friends who become so much more than lovers. It’s a roller coaster of laughs and romance. From sniping hunting, to getting high to a tornado. Just to name a few highlights. It’s not even half of it. Just jump on board the Kate Stewart express and hold on for the ride.
Kate Stewart delivered comedy with her Balls In Play series and with The Guy On The Right she excels and has created a home run. Theo and Laney gave me all I could’ve ever imagined. A love story to remember. What a couple!
5 Taco & Grand Band Man Stars
"We’re polar opposites in some ways. I’m too country, and he’s a whole lot of everything else. We shouldn’t fit, but we do, and our fit is nothing short of spectacular."
One of my favourite books from Kate Stewart is her romantic dramedy, Anything But Minor. Seeing a different side to Kate Stewart's writing was like a breath of fresh air and after many of her trademark angstathons, she has delivered yet another romantic dramedy winner. I still can't believe that it eclipsed ABM for me. The Guy on the Right is hilarious, yet has the perfect balance of swoon, hot and I mean hot dances between the sheets, one of the best and hottest first kisses EVER, a little angst, a few tears both in laughter and upset, and one of the best endings. This book had EVERYTHING.
"We made love, as cheesy as it sounds, but there isn’t another word for it, not at all. It wasn’t sex, and it was far too intimate to be f***ing. Well, maybe the third or fourth time could be considered f***ing. Those were more porn than promise, but neither of us had any objections."
Theo is one of those heroes that you will champion along from the very beginning. He is not your typical jock, but a man with heart and soul. Brought up with three sisters, this man has women down pat, their behaviour, their temperament, their feisty attitudes and definitely their ways of thinking. The one thing he hasn't mastered though is his own relationships with women. He thought he had the one, but alas, had his heart trampled and he has been reticent to try again since.
When a chance encounter with Laney happens, the world as Theo knows it is turned on its axis, for the better. Laney is one of my favourite heroines ever. If this woman was a piece of rock, she would have Texas running right through her. She is sassy, she says what she thinks, she is honest to a fault and has absolutely no filter, which only makes her all the more lovable. She works hard and plays harder. Until she met Theo. Laney may have a gypsy heart, but Theo is just the man to give her a reason to plant roots.
"She’s a second look kind of girl. The first look at her is for simple appreciation for the stunner she is. The second look is a realization of what an idiot you were for not looking longer the first time around."
Theo knows he is batting way above his league, but for these two, it just didn't matter. They clicked. Friends first, these two just gelled and became the best of friends and seeing this friendship develop was in itself a story. Friends to lovers is one of my favourite tropes and give me an underdog to root for, you can bet that I will be their biggest supporter, but Theo made this a no brainer.
"We’re in the middle of the f***ing woods with a rubber slingshot. And don’t think for one second I won’t toss you in front of me at the first sign of danger, because I’m not that guy. You will die first."
I was championing these two along from the very start, and while Laney usually goes for the bad boys, the fly by nights, like Theo's roommate, Troy, Laney finally sees the other side and wonders what in the hell took her so long. This is no instalove, it takes time for Laney's eyes to open and see the perfect specimen in front of her, but the fall, OMG the fall. Kate Stewart delivers BIG STYLE! I had a permagrin while reading this book, had a stitch through laughing and while it isn't all plain sailing (of course where is the fun in that) the angst that is thrown in was well delivered, tear-inducing and made the make up all the better.
"If I’m completely honest, I’ve been falling for him in pieces since the night we met. And for the first time since we started the relationship, I’m unsure if I’m worthy of such a gift. The gift of knowing him, of seeing him this way, of being on this side of his affection."
The Guy on the Right is the perfect summer read. This book will make you feel good, it will brighten the gloomiest of days and with a nod to the southern women's bible, Steel Magnolias, there is many a one-liner that will have you crying with laughter in the best way possible. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
Top international reviews
Theo and Laney have both had bad experiences with the opposite sex. Theo found that his girlfriend of 3 years had cheated on him, so had trust issues. Laney on the other hand had literally just dumped her boyfriend the minutes before she met Theo. In fact he heard the phone call. They were both sat in the dark garden, chatting honestly about how they were both swearing off the opposite sex.
When out grocery shopping a few days later Theo hears a familiar voice and realises that its Laney. He decides to approach, but of course she doesn't recognise him. After introductions they start chatting again and on leaving the store swap numbers deciding to be friends.
They are so different that their friendship shouldn't work, but it does. They are hilarious together. All the angst they both feel really comes through in the story. I loved them both equally for their differences.
So, I normally only buy ebooks and then purchase the paperback if I love the ebook enough. Welp, that wasn't the case here. I read the blurb and straight up bought the paperback instead of doing the safety route. I just dove straight in because the blurb reeled me in hardcore. And I have never been more pleased with a purchase. Seriously. This book was everything. It made me wheeze laugh, made me groan with frustration, and made me cry. It's hard to make me cry unless it's a darn good book and I'm hella invested. And boy let me tell you, I was invested. I was gripped by the very first page. The writing is flawless, and the story is one I will always remember. I simply don't have a bad thing to say about it. I'm already nagging those closest to me to buy and read the book. They're idiots if they dont listen to me, because this has been my favourite read of 2019 thus far.
Sigh. Now what am I going to do with my life? Because I'm currently wallowing in self misery thanks to the hangover this book has given me!
Worth it, though.
Kate Stewart is without doubt one of my favourite authors, her characters are so beautifully written and they come to life. I was consumed from start to finish. This felt like so much more than a college romance or a rom com. I laughed, I swooned, I filled up with tears (and yeah I shed a few)
Theo is swoony and loveable in every way: the responsible good guy. And Laney is so my kind of girl: I love her gypsy heart, her quirkinesses and her witty banter.
I laughed, and I mean laughed out loud-OUT LOUD- way past midnight reading this. I love the banter and everything about these characters, their relationship, this story, and the secondary characters too.
Kate you steal my breath and make my heart skip a beat and beat faster all at once!! I really needed a LOLOL book and I cannot recommend this book enough. The Guy On The Right is unputdownable in every way. Your writing never ceases to blow me away. Ah-May-Zing
I’m so looking forward to Troy’s story. Eeekkk!!! So so excited!!
5+ STARS all round.
It was terrific and I highly recommend ☺️
The beginning cheesed me off. Bullying or pressurising someone to lose their v card be it boy or girl is not cool people. Not cool at all.
I did like Theo (until near the end when I wanted to kick him up the backside) and I liked Laney too. They were funny together. I just don’t like books that are too full of dialogue and scant on descriptive prose. Not my jam.
So of course now I'm going straight to the guy in the middle. I feel like this is going on the re-read shelf, the highest order of praise for any book!
One night, under hilarious circumstances, Laney gets to know Theo. He's not her type and she's not his. Perfect! Because they both want different things in life. So they decide to become friends, best friends. This works for both, until they eventually develop feelings for each other.......
OMG, I love this story so much. But it's less about the romantic aspects (I mean, I love them too), I really love the friendship between Laney and Theo. It's so fresh and honest and absolutely beautiful 😍.
Wow, Kate Steward did it again and I know she will continue to amaze me with every book she writes. I love her style and how she gets to me with her words. Her characters are always realistic and loveable.
I cant wait for Kate's next book.
Theo is a hardcore charmer and Laney the girl you want as your bff.
For all their differences in their personalities, they’re truly the perfect match!
