I have read quite a few books from this author and usually enjoy them. Unfortunately, in this case; this story was one of the dullest I have ever read. The friendship between Wes (H), Caden and Roman (Wes’ friends) was far more entertaining than the boring relationship between the hero and the heroine.
Wes writes dating advice for guys, think Carrie Bradshaw. He has an assignment to find a woman, make her fall for him, and document the steps along the way, think the reverse of the movie “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days”. Wes, who has a job, college degree, and actually seems to be a great guy, meets June July (yes, her middle name is July....eye roll). June (h) is a wanna be broadway actress/dog walker/part-time doll clothing seamstress. She is 25 and apparently still trying to figure her life out....another eye roll. I have no idea why authors insist on writing about heroines being quirky and scattered. Basically, Wes and June have nothing in common. Maybe that is why I felt zero chemistry between them.
This story just drags on and on with Wes spending almost half of the book running into June, and asking her for her phone number. She doesn’t have a cell phone and I think somewhere around 50% of the book, she finally gives him her landline number. Around 70% they share their first kiss. If you are hoping for a sizzling sex scene, you will be waiting until 80%, and since I was skimming pages at this point, I don’t remember much about it. Also, this entire book, except for 2 chapters towards the end, are told from Wes’ POV. If you prefer dual POV, you will be disappointed.
This was a miss for me, but hoping Meghan Quinn’s next book will be much better!
