Somewhere in the back of my consciousness a few of my brain cells attempt a moment of clarity. I’m vaguely aware that I am hardcore making out with a man I just attacked in the garden of a stranger’s house while my ex played hand paddle with some beautiful college girl.
But clarity is overrated. And carpe gardener.
Brynn is recently divorced, recently unemployed and just generally feeling bummed out about it all. Coerced into a party that she had no desire going to, she’s not too happy when she spots her ex-husband getting handsy with what looks to be a younger, prettier version of herself. Her friend insists that the best way to get over seeing him is to hook up with the next guy she sees. Which is how she finds herself leaping into the arms of the property’s hot gardener. Only Tom’s no gardener, unbeknownst to Brynn, Tom is actually the host of a popular home improvement shot. He barely knows what’s hit him when he sees this beautiful woman barreling toward him and latching on, but he’s willing to go along with whatever game she’s playing. Tom’s had some pretty crazy things happen to him throughout his career but hooking up with this intriguing stranger who leaves behind only her name and her chocolate bunny panties might just top his list. Especially considering the surprise waiting for them both once he finally tracks her down!
“Somewhere between the boathouse and your fondness for appetizers, I fell for you. Hard.”
OMG, I LOVED this book! It was non-stop fun from the first page to the last. I seriously couldn’t stop laughing while reading it. The writing, the storyline, these characters, it was all hilarious! But also swoony, sexy and sweet. I want to be best friends with Brynn. There, I said it. She was a riot, but she was so relatable and realistic. Her sense of humor and her inner musings spoke to my soul! I love that she didn’t take herself too seriously most of the time, except when it counted. I also loved her friends, Ash and Sadie. The three of them together were fantastic. Then there’s Tom, sweet and sexy Tom. He was adorable and so funny. For a TV star you might expect him to be some out of touch jerk, but he was so down to earth and easy going. I love how from the moment Brynn launched herself at him, he was smitten and that he was the one to pursue her. Their journey was a little rocky and definitely hilarious but I loved how there was no silly drama or unneeded angst. Sometimes you just need an easy breezy story that’ll make you laugh and leave you feeling all gooey inside (like one of Brynn’s dips perhaps?) and that’s exactly what this book did for me. GAH! I’m still grinning thinking about Brynn and Tom and I’m trying to resist the urge to actually squee! If you’re a fan of rom-coms, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of this book!
“What a couple of fuckups we are.”
“Not anymore, gorgeous.” He kisses my neck. “We’ve got it right this time.”
