longshotreview My musings…

3.5 Crowns

Long shot is my first novel by Kayti McGee, and if I had to sum it up in a couple words it would be cute, funny, and heartwarming.

This story follows the crazy antics of Meredith and Rob as the navigate their relationship with jobs that others may frown upon.  Both of these characters are a little crazy, in a fun and entertaining way, and they made me laugh so much during the book.  I really enjoyed Meredith’s development as a character.  Seeing her move from being so focused on everyone else’s concerns to letting go a little bit was fun to watch.  But Rob really stole the show for me with his unending dedication to wooing Meredith.  Getting her to date him, watching him support her, and making his apology are some of my favorite scenes from the whole book.  I loved that he was sweet and so proud of her.

Although I liked them as characters, there were times that I became bothered by some of their behavior.  Several times I face-palmed and muttered why would you do that?  Why would you say that?  This often pulled me out of the story.  I did enjoy watching their courtship.  It is sweet and cute, but again, the antics of Meredith and her embarrassment got to be a little too much for me.  I think mainly because I really liked Rob, and I didn’t like her inner-dialogue or embarrassment towards him due to his profession.

Now the ending of this story bumped up the rating for me a little bit.  This ending is exactly what I was looking for and what I love about romance.  It is sweet and wonderful and romantic, and I even went back to re-read it again because it left me with that happy glow after reading a good book.  I just wish it would have been that way the whole through the story for me.

So, would I recommend this book to others? Absolutely!  It is hilarious, sweet, and romantic, and it has a good plot-line and likable characters, but ultimately, for me, I just didn’t connect with them, which has absolutely nothing to do with the quality of the story.  So if you want a light, fun quick, romantic comedy, definitely check out this newest book from Kayti McGee!

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

longshotpink Synopsis:

Meredith definitely drank too much last night. Why on earth else would she have woken up without her purse, and the distinct memory of giving her number to a stripper? So gross.

The good news is, she never has to see him again. Except to get her purse. And to discover she did another terrible, horrible, very bad thing while drunk- she accidentally became a professional penis photographer.

Rob wishes more people would believe him when he says he truly is stripping his way through journalism school. It’s the only way Millennials can afford school with no student loans. When Meredith quite literally stumbles across his path, he’s super smitten. Sadly, she is less so once she sobers up.

Can he trick her into dating him?
Can she trick her mother into thinking she has a respectable job?

And can anyone recover once the internet picks up their story? It’s a long shot for both of them.

undercoversvpinkv2 Synopsis:

Halfway through her first year on the job, Melissa Montclair decides the best part of teaching is winter break. And the best part of break is the Perfect Ten she meets in a bar on New Year’s Eve. Why not celebrate a semester under her belt with a Perfect Ten in her pants? The one night affair is all she hoped for, until she walks into school a week later and sees Mr. Ten is Student Twenty-nine on her roll call. She should be mortified—and she is—but that doesn’t stop her from banging him again. And again. And again. So much for job security. Posing as an exchange student at Hamilton High is finally the assignment Officer Spence Vega has been hoping for. Now he has a shot at getting to the bottom of the town’s recent molly epidemic. There’s only a couple of problems: first, history is taught by the curvy bombshell he banged on New Year’s. Second, his growing suspicion is that she’s the dealer he’s looking for. The job was supposed to be an easy in-and-out, not the teacher. If only they could stop getting under the covers, staying undercover would be so much easier.

toppedpink Synopsis:

Mr. Hottie Pants isn’t the cover model Miranda assumed he was… 

Miranda Rose lives for writing passionate, heart-wrenching romances. Unfortunately…there aren’t many readers that live for her books.

So every night, Miranda distracts herself from bad reviews by drunk-trolling her arch nemesis, writer Charlie Shivers, online. That click-baiting, dinosaur-smut peddler wouldn’t know real literature if it mounted him from behind!

Then, at her favorite romance writing conference, Miranda meets the world’s hottest guy and finds a new–ahem, sexier–way of distracting herself (and plenty of new material for her novels).

Except Mr. Hottie Pants isn’t the cover model she’d presumed–he’s her archenemy in the (naked) flesh, Charlie Shivers! To her surprise, sleeping with the enemy is kind of hot.
And scandalous.
And awesome.

But when she finds herself falling for the upstart hack of a novelist, she’s pretty sure there’s no way in hell that she’ll make it out on top.
