To be honest the ending kind of ruined it for me. Ruined Henry as well. I liked this guy until the end. He was so eager to jump another girl right after he got the girl of his dream? Ugh. I'm still angry about that one. And Rosie just overlooked it like it was her fault. She didn't even do anything but listen to her voicemail.
I wish I could erase that ending from my mind.
Other than the ending, the book was awesome. It was def one of the most hilarious book I've read. Rosie was dorky and cute and naive but also ballsy. She was willing to try things out of her comfort zone. She had me rolling on the ground with some of her incidents.
Henry was the perfect book bf until the end. He turned into a complete arse and I'm still jot over it. He didn't deserve Rosie in the end. If he was so in love with her for so long why was he always sleeping with other women. Made no sense. Typical arse I guess.
I just could get over the fact that Rosie for so naive when it came to sex. Okay, so you were home schooled and your parents sheltered you but have you never seen an R rated movie? You have access to the internet, half the stuff Rosie was in the dark about she could've Googled. It's 2014, not 1914.
I think the author tried too hard to make the reader laugh and same of the situations Rosie found herself in. The vibrator incident was hilarious. It did take a lot out of me not to LOL while I was reading on the bus. But then there was vomit incidents, or the queefing incident or the balls kicking incident that had me rolling my eyes more than laughing.
I did like the interaction with Rosie and Henry. From the bat, you could figure out that he really loved her but never wanted to do anything to hurt their friendship. Despite his feeling for Rosie, he was a guide while she went on date with different guys. While reading I imagined Henry with a British accent but that might be just me. There is not natural conflict when friend become potentially more but in the end there is a HEA.
Like I said, I had high hopes for this one but it just didn't do it for me.
But, it was cute, and for the most part funny. It was fairly predictable, the characters were likable, (although I wanted to just slap both Henry and Rosie at times). If you're looking for a quick, light and easy read this might be for you.
Rosie is a recent college graduate who scored a job as a writer at a magazine that is 100% focused on cats. And yes, there are even cats around her office, one of whom is her arch nemesis, aka Sir Licks A Lot. Obviously, this is not her dream job, but it pays the bills. In her free time, Rosie is writing a book…a romance novel to be exact. The only problem? She’s a virgin. So yes, this book is a little cliche, but it was okay, it worked for me. Her roommate’s, Delaney and Henry, catch a glimpse at what she’s writing and immediately determine that she needs a lesson on romance, and more importantly, how to get laid and lose the V-card. This starts a series of cringe-worthy moments, and since they weren’t happening to me, were absolutely hilarious :)
Overall, I loved this book! Like I said, it’s seriously funny. Rosie’s character was a little too naive for me, but for some reason it just worked. Her roommate’s kept things going, and were great side characters who only had Rosie’s best interest in mind. Her roommate, Delaney, is straight to the point, knows what she wants, and lets Rosie know how to get the job (losing her virginity) done. Henry, the other roommate, is pretty much swoonworthy…sigh. While the situations Rosie found herself in were sometimes over the top, they totally made the book and were like watching a hilarious tv show or movie where you think to yourself, “Can that really happen?” but know it’s purely for entertainment purposes. So if you have a good (dirty) sense of humor and are looking for something to make you laugh, I strongly recommend you get your hands on this book :)
