My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Ms. Flynn is another one of my go-to authors when she has a new release and Awk-Weird was an absolute delight!
Awk-Weird sets up our quirky heroine Tess and the “Thor look-alike” hockey star Cole in an unintended pregnancy from a wedding rehearsal hookup. Or as Tess designates it — “weddinged”. Our adorable factoid spewing Tess has an apartment mishap that sends her shacking up with the baby daddy Cole who is NOT used to having his home invaded. Which includes her naughty kitten Kahn as another roomie spoil for Cole’s pristine home.
Their chemistry is compatible right off the bat which I love in a romance. POV is from both Tess and Cole’s perspective alternatively — which adds so much for me as a reader — I always want to know right now where their heads are in the story.
Tess has a fabulous girlfriend squad that offers support when all the angst begins and she falls in love with the guy. Cole’s teammates contribute all kinds of bromance advice to push him out of his routine and comfort zone. Always with hilarious shenanigans. The balance of drama and romance is Ms. Flynn’s romcom storytelling talent. I can’t wait for the next installment “Loud Mouth” — Petrov’s story — (with a little Christensen drama I understand)! Get this fun story — believe me, you will literally laugh out loud!
Just a heads up — this is a standalone book — but enjoyed much more if you have read some of Avery’s previous binge-worthy tomes (The Hartigans — Butterface, Muffin Top and Tomboy and this series starter — Parental Guidance) Trust me they are all wonderful, funny, easy reads!
