    Gloriously immature!, November 27, 2012

    OK, first of all I had to get over the fact that the guy on the cover appears to be the same guy on the cover of Charade. It threw me off a little bit…

    Anyway, this book is about early 30-ish high school teachers Shelly, Melissa, Matt and Chase. Shelly is getting over her broken engagement to Chase, Matt is moving in for the kill and Shelly and Melissa, BFF’s, act hilariously immature through the whole thing. That’s the best part, really – how Shel and Mel crack themselves and each other up all the time. They made me laugh out loud a lot. And it was all just so stupid. In a good way.

    And Matty (hate that name) is the coolest, sweetest, sexiest, best guy ever. What’s not to love? The friendship-to-romance relationship between him and Shelly was perfect and light-hearted. Mostly.

    But, again, Shelly and Melissa steal this show, in my opinion. I like any book that can make me laugh all the way through it and this book had that in spades.

    Recommended for when you’re looking for a light, not too emotionally taxing read.

    I won’t give you a play by play on the book, but I will comment on my opinion of this book. I considered not “purchasing” it based on other reviews, however, at $0 how could I not indulge. In the end, I’m glad I did as I thoroughly enjoyed it! Yes, there is lots of profanity or “wanna be profanity” (of which most of it was the latter). One of the reviews said teachers don’t act that way. I have been around a few teachers and yes, some do act that way. Regardless, it’s a fiction novel that is written to entertain you. If you enjoy laughing and aren’t offended by “wanna be profanity” or enjoying life to the fullest, this book is definitely for you! The author was refreshing and was able to insert humor into a romance novel. I get bored reading about the same story, different cover, of main characters and their sex scenes. This was a good read and kept my attention throughout the entire book.

    This is one of the funniest books I’ve read in a while. I was literally snorting out loud – which was embarassing because I was reading this in public. This is written in the first person, and while I’m generally NOT a fan of first person narratives as I think it lends itself to WAY too much emoting and introspection and self-torture by the heroine, this worked. Probably because I loved the heroine – she’s smart, snarky, self-aware and completely hilarious. Her BFF too – I can’t wait for the sequel! Yes, she indulges in some self-pity, but who doesn’t when they’ve been dumped by their boyfriend of 10 years and has to see him and his new ho EVERY single day because you work at the same school? And yes, I thought it took Shelly a little too long to figure out that she loved Matt – but even though she’s confused and conflicted, we see her slowly letting go of her ex (Chase) and falling in love with Matt from the random thoughts that ran through her head.

    Example: in the beginning, when she was still in love with Chase and would jump at the chance to take him back – home-wrecking ho notwithstanding – she described him as having chocolate brown eyes, mocha eyes, Hershey Kisses eyes…. Basically different variations of how swoon-worthy and sexy he is. As her healing progresses and she falls in love with Matt, super sexy Chase’s eyes go from Hershey Kisses eyes to poo-colored eyes. So even though she keeps saying she’s conflicted, we can see by her thought processes that she is indeed moving towards bigger and better things.

    Aside from the hilarious snark, Matt is to die for. Even with the first person narrative his feelings and motivations are laid bare, which I think is hard to do when a book is written in the first person. The friendship between Shelly and her BFF Mel was also very well drawn – don’t we all wish we had girlfriends like that! Also, the story itself was just sweet. This is a funny, quick, sweet and great read. This is not an angsty book at all – but truly a hilarious light read that I finished in one afternoon. Highly recommend!
