“Knock knock!”
“Um… Who’s there?”

Yeah. That was me, on my last date. Before you feel sorry for me 
you should know that I was the one telling the jokes. Jokes as in 
plural, because I didn’t stop with just one. Of course not. 

Hi, I’m Chloe Scott. The most awkward single girl in the city.
But I’m going to get it together. I am. 

I’m going to learn how to date like a grown up.
I’m going to have an orgasm not given to myself. 
I’m going to fall in love and live happily ever after. 

Right after I get out of this interrogation room.

My Opinion

Chloe Scott is a socially inept elementary school teacher. Sure she gets along great with her second graders. Men her own age, not so much. So she starts to use an app to find dates, only the ones that she meets are just wrong. Boyd Gallagher is the FBI agent who happens to arrest her. He also happens to be one of her bff’s long lost brothers.

Boyd is adorable. He recognizes right away that Chloe has social anxiety issues when she is in awkward for her situations. He works around them, picking up on her tells and diffusing the situation before she starts to panic. He tries to elevate any stressor so that Chloe doesn’t run away from what is building between them.

Chloe is well…how to put this nicely…clueless. She is great in the classroom. Outside it not so much. Her friends find her endearing. They rally behind her and push her towards new experiences. She attempts new things- just freezes when it becomes something that is not familiar to her. Boyd comes in like a sniper to steal her heart.

I liked this one way more than the first book in the series. This is an adult book, so be forewarned about some of the scenes. The character growth and the development of the relationship was more natural than before.

My Rating 3 out of 5 stars

  1. That's so interesting that she teaches elementary school students but she isn't a very social person. I feel like teachers have to be social! I'm glad you found some positives and mostly enjoyed the book!

    Have a lovely weekend, Angela. =)
