It has been a long time since I have smiled through the majority of a book. I obviously like romance but when you add comedy its a winner for me. Ellie is hilarious while trying to find Mr. Right. She does the online dating thing & honestly I can see all of that happening in real life. Curtis is just trying to keep up with his garlic business. The situations they end up in are great. There are several secondary characters that you will fall in love with too.
I reallly enjoyed this book & I think you will too. Its not often that you can laugh and smike while reading. Rich doesca great job of entertaining you while you fall in love. Go get this book. I am giving it 4.5 stars out of 5.
“He kissed me in the library!” said Ellie. “That’s my place of work and it’s completely inappropriate.” Ellie forked some noodles on her plate. “I’m up for the biggest promotion of my life and if that kiss has repercussions, I’ll kill him with my bare hands.”Grandpa Frank laughed. “You’re not overreacting a bit?”
“You don’t go kissing people in their place of work.”
“Well, I don’t know about that. Things happen in the moment of passion and sometimes you just can’t help yourself. I kissed your grandma in the malt shop … a few times.”
Ellie stopped chewing.
“Don’t look so surprised. I wasn’t a prude, you know.”
“I know, but …”
“Is it about the promotion? Or is it something else?”
Grandpa Frank knew her so well.
No. It wasn’t about the promotion, now that she’d thought about it. The real issue was she enjoyed the kiss and didn’t want it to stop. That scared her, because she still wasn’t sure about who he was. She was attracted to Cedric that was for sure. He was witty and charming, but she had a lot of unanswered questions and doubts about him.
“Have I ever told you that you’re a wise man?”
“Yes.” Grandpa Frank chuckled. “But I don’t get tired of hearing it.”
“I enjoyed it. The kiss.”
Grandpa Frank nodded.
“And I slapped him.”
Grandpa Frank grimaced. “Poor guy. I guess this is one of those times where we men don’t understand you women. Why would you slap him if you enjoyed the kiss?”
Ellie shrugged and fidgeted with the salt and pepper shakers. “Nervous reaction, I guess.”
