We are so excited to be bringing you the release of AWK – WEIRD by Avery Flynn – be sure to check out my review and get your copy today!
There’s more to me than just being awk-weird. I own my own flower shop, have some great friends, and I have my eye on adopting the most adorable kitten. But sadly, hot guys don’t tend to be blown away by my trivia-spouting, dorky self.So, when a Thor-lookalike who happens to be a professional hockey player hits on me at my bestie’s wedding rehearsal party … You better believe I climbed that tree like a cat. And the face that it happened not once, not twice, but three times? Yeah, that’s pretty much a once-in-a-lifetime experience for a woman like me.There’s zero chance I’ll end up ever seeing him again…right?Until the pregnancy test comes up positive. What happens next?Oh my God, I wish I knew…
The thing about blogging that I love the most is the fact that I get a chance to find some amazing new authors and their backlists which my never ending TBR might groan at; but yay for never going out of things to read 😀
Case in Point – Avery Flynn; an author I had never heard of; but the current book’s blurb had me intrigued and interested right from the start! Being an awkward, weird and quirky girl myself, I am all for heroines who embody the same quirks in them – that pretty much makes it a fun and relatable read!
Tess, our heroine is a veritable queen of social awkward – ness and the queen of facts – her quirks aren’t loved by many, so she has a lifetime of getting used to being lonely. Her growing up years were of the lonely sort, mostly cause her mother used to drop her off at her relatives for weeks at times, so she became used to being invisible, just so she wouldn’t be considered a burden.
Cole, on the other hand, a professional hockey player (or a Thor lookalike, like Tess calls him!) is a little bit obsessed with having everything in order – it has a calming effect on him; the same plays used in every game, the same on – off girlfriend from high school and a set future schedule that he knows he will accomplish. He doesn’t really do well with change.
Tess and Cole are veritable opposites of each other, but a wedding where Cole’s ex is on a date with another, leads to some very fun times, between Tess and Cole – something neither of expect to last beyond that one night.
But life has a way of laughing at set plans; and that’s exactly what happens with Tess and Cole; when a surprise pregnancy and leaky plumbing throws obstacles in their grand plans of just co – parenting this surprise baby.
Living together makes for an interesting plot – it’s hilarious when two opposites come together, but its also heart warming to see them both grow, ‘not just individually, but also together, even with their own insecurities played havoc with their emotions.
Awk –Weird is the book that encompasses WHY communication is important in any relationship – yet somehow the author made this more of an emotional read, and one that I definitely enjoyed.
Avery Flynn is an author whose works I will definitely be picking blurb unseen; cause that’s how much I adored Awk – Weird; not to mention the sneak peak of the next book we got at the end of this eARC!
