She is the sassy-mouthed Tiny Dancer. Prima ballerina with a beauty, brains, and a never ending reserve of insults for me- her brother’s best friend John Brandt, known to her as Jonny B. Nerdballs. I am no good at social interactions, usually too forward and direct. Also, I spent way too long building my empire- a tech start up and a name for myself. I was always coming back for her, though… Olivia was always the only one for me, ever since I saw her dance in a recital when she was far too young for me. I have taken care of myself. I think I am finally worthy of her… not all I have to do is convince her and not get killed by my best friend.
I don’t often write reviews on the romance novels I read unless they are really, really good. I am super picky. I want it all- the meet cute, good character development, chemistry, good story line and, God help me, more story line than sex. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a prude and will read books that are more erotic in nature…. but I want to feel for the characters and to like them as people. This book brought it all. I was half in love with John from the word “go”. He is determined, loyal, loving…. and awkward as all hell. There were times where the whole “workaholic” thing was played a bit much, but I feel like it stayed in line with his character. Olivia was a great character too, sassy and strong willed, loyal and loving. Watching the two interact was brilliant. For me, it was a four star book.
On the adult content scale, I would give it an eight. The sex scenes are pretty explicit and there’s some language.
I read this whole book with a goofy smile plastered to my face and my fingers crossed that this couple would find love and happiness together.
John’s personality is so quirky and throughout, he is written consistently. He is nerdy but he made my heart flutter a lot. These two were so darn cute! Olivia’s family and restaurant work colleagues make up a loving and fun supporting cast I loved reading about too.
I laughed out loud a lot and swooned too. What a great mix in a romance novel. I recommend it.
This is a new-to-me author. I loved her fresh writing style. I'll be reading more Kayley Loring books for sure.
So my review... I loved this story. I loved Olivia more than John. That rarely happens for me. The back and forth in time was hard for me to keep up with or enjoy in the beginning. By the end, I was dying for young John. I liked him more. I did like his character but I didn't love him. I can't decide if he is yummy or not for me. That's a new thing too. I usually love or hate a character. I did love Olivia. I think that Olivia and John are perfect together and I love them together. I was left wanting more at the end and hating the rush to the end. It skipped so much that I felt cheated rd out of something amazing. It would be nice to get a short story with a few details. I loved the brothers role in the end. I know my review is chaos and sporadic but that's kinda how my mind feels after reading this. I definitely recommend this book but I am not sure if I will revisit it in the future. I only leave 5 starts for those books I'll definitely read again. And would be 100% recommended. I will recommend it but with my reservations about the time jumps and whatnot.
Overall a great story!
You’d think that a voice from a socially stunted (at least in private) CEO/Techie/MIT graduate would be uninteresting, but that’s not the case at all. The heroine is pretty funny, too in a more intentional way.
The story takes you back and forth from various times when they were kids, with him growing up in their house (because his workaholic parents were always working). At first it felt distracting, but then it’s a way to see how his love was so slow-burn, and how he fell into it so deeply he can’t get out. And with the heroine, too.
Wonderfully written, deserves all the five starts it gets.
(Oh, and the cute & sexy cover model? Is totally Johnnie)
I laughed out loud several times, snorted many more times, I cared about the characters. The male POV was unexpectedly funny and more realistic than most.
This was the first book I’ve read by this author, and I will be reading her others ASAP.
..it is told in dual POV, and also has flashback when they were young.
John, comes up with the idea with fake dating his Best Friend sister
She is a ballerina, his polar opposite, which makes their banter comical
Sparks start to fly, and some miscommunications...
Enjoyable story that will make you smile
Book was originally titled 'Cocky Nerd', but there is something going on with some lame author who thinks they can copyright a word, so that no one else can use it in the title of their books. Doesn't seem very fair to me.
I loved seeing how John & Olivia had known each other for most of their lives but didn’t really understand each other until now.
This was just an awesome, funny, sweet, & sexy book. I really enjoyed it!
