REVIEW – CO-WRECKER by Meghan Quinn

SYNOPSIS

What do ice cream and Sadie Montgomery have in common? They’re both ice cold, but one taste is never enough.

I wanted to be friends — I would have even settled for her seeing me as anything but a nerd — but there was no getting through. So just like any hard-headed, red-blooded man out there, I made up my mind.

I’d make my coworker fall for me.

I’d like to say it was simple, but like every other epic love story, all it took was one drunken night and a lot of naked courage to get the girl. For a moment, at least.

Love with a coworker is never simple, especially since Sadie’s trying to keep us on the low. Not to mention her persistent ex-boyfriend who won’t leave her alone. But I’ve never been good at giving up, and I don’t plan to start now.

The whole thing is a recipe for a rocky road, but I plan to eat the whole gallon, no matter how bad the brain freeze.

*****FIVE CANNON COCK & STURDY TITS STARS*****

{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

When did he become so ingrained in my life? Essential. When did he matter so much to me? When did this become more that a fling to me? Because I can’t remember; it’s like it sneak attacked me, leaving me no other option than to feel like utter crap when it fell apart.

When I started reading this story, I had some reservations. Once the main characters are introduced and I realized this was an NA romance between two co-workers who work at a Friendly’s restaurant in upstate New York, I immediately was preparing myself for the impending disappointment that lay ahead of me. Yet another two to three days of wasted time reading a book that was utterly boring. To my shocking surprise and delight, I really ended up LOVING this book!! It was not only ROMCOM at its best but it also had depth and heart to it as well. It was the perfect gift to this reader who loves a good laugh combined with a hefty dose of steam and some gut-wrenching angst to complete this wonderful package. I now understand why I have seen praise over Meghan Quinn’s other books and I am definitely going to be reading more by this talented author!

In the majority of RomComs, the Heroine is usually the funny and socially inept character. It was refreshing to have the roles reversed in ”CO-WRECKER”. Andrew ‘aka’ CANNON COCK is incredibly intelligent and adorably nerdy, but he’s got the body and the looks of a male model. He 100% made this book for me! From the moment he stumbled and face-planted into Sadie’s chest and labeled it her sturdy bosom, I was a goner for him! Somehow he made being geeky and silly, mouth-wateringly sexy. So many things that he said had my belly aching from laughing so hard. I really did lose count over how many times I caught myself laughing out loud. And holy hell did he have some amazing sexual skills!! He also had a way with words. Andrew often says things to Sadie that would make any woman melt into a puddle of swooniness!

Sadie was a hard character for me to like throughout most of the story. I really do feel like Andrew was the bright shining star and there was just no way for her to measure up to him and actually that is how she feels for about 90% of this book. She hasn’t had an idyllic life. Her mother abandoned her family when she was a young girl and life had dealt her another crushing disappointment in her most recent past. Sadie has not been able to move on and tries to wallow in self-pity by dropping out of college and hanging out with her childhood friends for the entire summer. Once she meets and gets to know Andrew, she starts to find some happiness that she was certain would never appear in her life again. Sadie clings to this newfound relationship with the man who makes her feel alive once more and who has no connections to her painful past.

She lets Andrew know that what they have going is all fun and sexual, there is no potential for anything deeper between them. But honestly, who is she fooling? Each day they spend together, feelings are slowly intensifying for the both of them. Andrew opens himself up to Sadie. He holds nothing back from her, but she is like a book filled with blank pages. Sadie doesn’t give up much about herself to Andrew and eventually, it starts to deeply discourage him. Andrew wants Sadie to open up and let him into her heart. What’s ironic is she has also managed to fall deeply in love with him too but her fear of not being good enough for him, keeps her from telling him all of the truths she has withheld since they started dating.

This book was just what I needed after a long and stressful week. Not only was it hysterically funny and immensely entertaining, it even had a really powerful message. You can’t rely on anyone else but yourself to make your life better. You define the person that you are. It is a lesson that some people are lucky to learn early in life and for some of us it takes many decades but I say it’s better late than never!

CO-WRECKER is currently available and I highly recommend it!
