Abby has had a horrifying experience with her first boyfriend and is emotionally and mentally scarred from it and really has no interest in men. Ethan is her roommates brother who keeps barging into the room without ever knocking, Ethan is a player, not interested in long term but he instantly wants Abby and he's not used to being denied but Ethan is a good guy and they become friends and eventually things progress but there's a lot of fun and banter in between those steps. I love how they are both into nerdy things. It's a lovely story and Ethan really helps her and gives her the push to get past her fears and trust again. I would definitely recommend and can't wait to read the next book.
Amazing friends to lovers story! Ethan & Abby have terrific chemistry & are the perfect match.
Abby has a past that includes some pretty dark abuse. She tried therapy, but it didn't really work, so she copes with a little kickboxing, a little self medicating, and a lot of avoidance! Until Ethan literally bursts his way into her life. The friendship that these two build is one of my favorites of this kind - they connect on a level that is beyond attraction. Before Ethan knows any details of Abby's pain, he treats her with care, and AFTER - that kicks up several notches. He is constantly checking with her to make sure each step they take is okay and his sole focus shifts from himself to HER. I can't even describe it well, but it was nicely written & wonderfully paced. There is a SOB (seemingly obligatory breakup) that I didn't totally buy into the reasoning, but at the same time was done well.
I can recommend this story as one that will give you the feels - and some laughs & fanning your face time! I'm looking forward to diving into the next book in this series! : )
ABSOLUTELY wonderful read! I loved this story about Abby and Ethan! Abby has a past that keeps her from men, she shies from their contact and wants nothing to do with relationships. Ethan is a man whore that has a "No repeat" philosophy when it comes to woman. They both have a nerdy side that is enduring and their banter in incredible! They both take a chance on a friendship that turns into muh more than either one wanted.
This is a a lovely story about two people who seem impossibly broken and don't realize that they are fixing each other just by being there for each other. This story follows them as they realize that being friends just isn't enough. Abby and Ethan are beautiful together and you will enjoy their story
I didn't know what to expect from this book, so I had no expectations. I was looking for light, humor, and some bow chicka bow wow. This book did just that and then some. I really liked how the Hero and Heroine were strong and vulnerable. They were perfect for each other. Looking forward to the next Nerdy Boy in the series.
