Last night I finished, Keeping Mr. Right Now by Robin Bielman. I have to say that it was a cute read with a little more heat than normal Bliss books. However, not as steamy as a Brazen book. Anyway, I guess I should tell you why I liked this book.

First, I adore Sophie Birch. She's cute, adorable, and a bit of a nerd. Yes! Let's rock the nerdy girl heroines. So, she wouldn't be deem as hot. Now, Zane Hollander is a play-boy surfer who wants to clean up his act. Now his buddies think Sophie is the perfect solution to his image problems cause isn't his typical type. Plus, it helps that she will be around cause working on the film festival.

I love the fact that at the beginning of the book Sophie is understated. I mean she was a good-looking, but never saw herself that way. Plus, when you been teased your whole life for your looks you have self doubt that anyone is looking at you. So, he wore her nerd-girl self as a security blanket, but wanted to let go and create a new image. She was lucky to meet Honor to help her find a new image. Plus, it helped that Zane started to see how special she was. Bad-boy Zane who "wore his charm like a second skin", and knew his limitations that were ingrain by his lovely father (not really). After all his father would say things like:
"You've got s*** for brains, son. The only thing you're good at is surfing. Quit school. Take endorsement deal and go where they want you. The only thing that suits you is the water."
Zane is actually more than that, but when you get stuff like that ingrain you start to believe. I liked that both of them had insecurities, and they were able to help one another.

Overall, Keeping Mr. Right Now was a cute story. I liked that it had two people from different worlds come together.

4 Star Review

I tend to be a fan of Bielman's writing so I couldn't wait to read this book. Sophie is an amazing young lady with intelligence, a job she loves, and a total lack of self confidence. Presented with a wonderful opportunity, Sophie sets out from Montana to California working as the event coordinator for a surf inspired film festival. Like every other woman, Sophie is blown away by Zane, the sexy surfer with a reputation as a bad boy and lady's man. Needing to spruce up his image to pursue a position with SHE, Sophie fits the bill perfectly to keep him out of trouble.

Great things happen when the two interact. Sophie builds confidence and gains even more experience for her job. Zane realizes he is better than the negative self image his father left him with. But despite the growing feelings, the question lies whether the two can have something together.

I did enjoy this book immensely. Anytime you have the hot stud falling for the girl with self esteem issues it is a Cinderella story but with a lot more steam. Chemistry rolls off this couple and you can't help but root for them. What is great is that there is more depth to their relationship, rather than just the attraction and Bielman does a great job illustrating that.

So why only a four star review. There was a little lack of realism with some of Zane's comments. I just can't picture a surfer dude with concerns about his lack of education saying, "And I love the pink flush of arousal that does indeed spread everywhere." Beyond that my only other critique is that the ending just wraps up way too quickly.

3.5 “Zaned” Kisses

Well…that was quite an enjoyable surprise. It’s been a long time since I read a really good beach read…and Keeping Mr. Right Now is a fantastic example of just that. It was sweet, sexy, funny and had just enough emotion to squeeze my heart the way I like it. Sophie and Zane were amazing…*sigh*

Zane William Hollander…oh my golden surfer boy…there is so much more to him than his bad boy player reputation…so much it blew me away. I loved getting the know the real Zane…I was super surprised that we got his POV in addition to Sophie’s, that was an unexpected treat, but it was 100% necessary…because even the things he told Sophie…hearing his thoughts, getting every raw feeling from him was…there are no words – I loved it. Zane’s thoughts and feelings are incredibly heart breaking…his history with his father tore me apart…and the fact that it has plagued him and affected him for so long made it so much worse...and considering how he turned out, on the outside, you would never know it. He's excellent at hiding behind the hot surfer dude. The only good thing to come out of all of that is Zane’s passion for surfing. Hearing him talk about it…getting excited about his work and what he was able to do because of surfing…the opportunities that he’s had in his life…the joy was infectious – I was happy because he was happy and aside from his feelings on Sophie, that might be my second favorite thing about Zane

‘He rubbed the back of his neck, focused on the midnight-blue sea. “Out in the water, I don’t have to worry about uninvited attention or my reputation or letting anyone down. The world falls away and…and it feels good.”
“You’re feeling bliss,” Sophie said, seeming equally taken with the darkening ocean.
