My rating: “Perfectly Ridiculous.”
Ok, I’m just going to say it; this is Lauren Layne’s best book! This was absolutely adorable. I loved everything about this book. I was feeling like a giddy little school girl reading it.
Andrew Mulroney and Georgiana Watkins are the perfect example of opposites attract. Georgia is a New York socialite who has nothing but time to play and enjoy life. Andrew, on the other hand, is a brilliant man who loves hard work and predictability. According to Georgia…“The man’s a lesson in sameness, like some sort of anal-retentive version of Groundhog day.” LOL. Sounds hot? Maybe not at first, but Andrew’s grumpy old ways start to grow on me and, of course, Georgiana! Together, they are the perfect mix.
“You can see why I don’t like the guy. I had a great thing going and he ruins it with every scowl.”
I’m a huge fan of love/hate relationships because I find the bantering the perfect foreplay. Georgiana and Andrew have the best foreplay. The bickering and witty comments to each other are not spiteful, but playful and fun. It was sexual tension with a sweet innocence to their attraction. It was all about the little things such as waiting for each other every morning just to have 5 minutes of bickering or the way he sends her flowers telling her she is “perfectly ridiculous.” SWOON. I got all the feels…the butterflies and the anticipation. This book brought me back to my girlish crush days of wanting of living for those small moments.
One of the best things about this book is the character development. Georgie has the potential to be annoying and spoiled, but she is painted in the best way possible. Despite being rich, she has a huge heart and she wears it on her sleeve. Her character really shines and I just love her. Andrew is incredibly well developed as well. I like the fact that he isn’t the typical hot rich guy. He’s rich, but he’s an introvert and socially awkward. This is why Georgie and Andrew are perfect for each other. They match each other’s weaknesses.
“More important, he wanted it. He wanted the happily-ever-after. He wanted it with her.”
I love this story. It has a fairy tale feel that leaves me feeling so uplifted. It is full of fun banter and sweet moments. This is a must read!!
“Love me back,” he whispers. “Please love me back.”
“You’re ridiculous,” I whisper. “Of course I love you back.”
