A full night of restful sleep apparently. This isn’t a bad thing. I will gladly trade Zs for a good book and it’s been a long time since I’ve been able to make that trade and not felt crappy about it the next morning. Yes, I was tired and crabby the next day, but it was all for a good cause.
Upon starting the book, you are immediately intrigued by Zackary (the male lead—story told from alternating 1st person point of view). The expert writing and pacing of the story keeps the plot—the crux of the tale—in the center of your mind throughout. Thus, my interest was kept, pages were turned, and sleep was not had. I was very, very pleasantly surprised to find a well-written novel with little to no typos, grammatical, or substantive errors. This doesn’t happen very often when I read. I also expected the story to come out a certain way—to be obvious in its climax and resolution—but I was even more surprised to discover some original twists and turns to a story line that has been told before.
I will admit that I was expecting more comedy given the title, and while there were a few amusing moments, I certainly wouldn’t put this book in the Romantic Comedy genre. It’s a much more emotional character study with an intense love story. I know it’s also thrown in as New Adult, but I found these characters to be much more mature than characters typically are in this category. I really appreciated that. While Kenna had much to learn, much growing to do, you were able to sympathize with her and root for her to become a better person. It’s all about the character growth and when an author can make you like and identify with a generally unlikable character you can mark one in the win column. Did I mention yet how much I enjoyed this book? I really did.
My only real criticism is the rapid change between point of view from Zackary to Kenna. Especially in the first few chapters. It’s a bit jarring. While it’s clearly established whose POV it is, it messed with my traditional sense of editing nature and OCD tendencies. However, all complaints aside, it didn’t entirely deter from the story or my enjoyment of it and in the end it made sense. The primary switch to Zack’s POV after the climax was a nice touch. It was different, and different (when done well) is a good thing.
Regardless of this title being free or not I would’ve happily paid full price for it. I’m quite pleased to have discovered it and another author to follow. I look forward to reading more Ryan Ringbloom. I highly recommend this book to others. Also, I feel I should explain, why 4 stars and not 5. As you can see, to me this was a really great book, but that being said…it wasn’t my favorite. I reserve 5 stars for my absolute best of the best reads. 4 stars is pretty darn great and, in my world, is valued very high. I hate seeing 4 star reviews devalued.
(Also reviewed for the Crafty Cauldron)
The relationship between the two is something out of this world. From the way they meet, to the way they grow as friends and lovers (sorry, no insta-love here). From their funny moments, which are hilarious by the way, to the sexy moments that will have your heart skip a beat or two. The story of Kenna and Zack keeps you anxiously flipping the pages. Desperate to know what happens next. This book not only gives you an AMAZING story but a great message as well. To everyone who suffers from any sort of insecurity, even the tiniest bit of it - this story makes you realize that a person who truly loves you, will love you for WHO YOU ARE and not for who you're trying to be. Besides, why would we want it any other way? Ryan Ringbloom - you've outdone yourself AGAIN. With every book you write, you only keep reminding me over and over why I love you and your writing so damn much. I am so proud of you !!!!!
I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

I will admit that the title and cover attracted me from the start. In this story we have a bad girl good boy angle.Read more
Admittedly the character of Kenna is easily dislikable as the story begins, with her low self esteem and lower morals.Read more
