4.5 stars. The Guy On The Right was an epic story! Laney and Theo meet on a night where things haven’t exactly gone their way. They bare their souls to each other and this leads to an immediately friendship of sorts. Laney is annoyed with men because they’ve all previously made her feel overlooked and undervalued. But Theo is the opposite of everyone else, he makes her feel special and valued, and he totally gets her. She’s completely adorable, spirited, independent and beautiful, and Theo’s sure this will all end in heartbreak for him because he’s convinced he’s been friend-zoned. You see Theo is the guy on the right, the average guy who’s often overlooked. What starts out as a genuine friendship is morphing into something else thanks to the chemistry they have. He might be the underdog, but spoiler alert - in this story the underdog gets the girl! #livingmyrealestlife #underdoglovestory
I don’t know why I go in thinking “ wonder what this one is going to be like” every time I read a book of Kate Stewart’s. She never writes ANYTHING short of spectacular, and all I can do is just hold on , enjoy the ride and get taken on such a beautiful, emotional filled journey. Her writing always hit me right in the heart and I ALWAYS still have the characters on a reel in my head playing over and over for weeks .
This particular story I think for many reasons is her BEST to date.. yes!!!! That is a HUGE call but Shush I’ll tell you why... She has absolutely nailed a story filled with just the right amounts of comedy, romance, drama , and angst. Every word was written with such sublime precision, her characters were built beautifully and the storyline and plot were exceptional. Holy cow !!! The two main characters are (I think) her best yet, I wanna be Laney when I grow up, and I truly believe everybody needs a Theo in their lives.
The writing ability of this Stunning Author should never become a shock because she more than delivers on every single piece that is released.But... it is still shocking to me because she continues to raise the bar. How much higher can she possibly go ? I really don’t know , it’s scary how crazy talented this lady is but I am one fan that will be there for every single story.
Not only will you fall in love with Theo and Laney but all the side characters too. Theo’s 3 sisters were just CLASSIC , and Laney’s mum and best friend were brilliant also. Cannot wait to learn more about Troy , I knew that man had more depth to him and I’m looking forward to see where his story goes.
Do yourselves a favor and go get this book NOW!!! It will be in your top 2019 reads list for sure.
This book gave me all the feels, I could not put it down I had to know all the things!
Theo and Laney were everything. Their relationship started as friendship but not long into it feelings grew and it was honestly the sweetest thing to read. I loved that Theo wasn't the typical bad boy, he was one of the good guys, so down to earth he definitely made me swoon on multiple occasions.
I was definitely not expecting how amazingly good this book was. It was sweet, funny with some seriously hot scenes and just enough angst.
I loved every minute of it and I can't wait for more x
This is my latest foray into the world of Kate Stewart, I was too dumb for “Method” my brain just couldn’t understand it, and to much of a scaredy-cat to dip my toes into “Heartbreak Warfare” which from the reviews that I’ve read was wonderful but suspense-y and I am to big of a sook as far as suspense goes. Anyhoo we’re talking about “The Guy on the Right” I was right amongst it until the last little bit, not to say I didn’t enjoy it, I was just ready for it to finish and it seemed to jump around a little. But great story and characters and I’ve just realised that they were uni students (YA) and I wasn’t even disappointed in that.
If you’re looking for a heart warming, genuinely LOL read this one’s for you!
Theo and Laney’s friends to lovers adventure is my favourite kind of smart storytelling. Hilarious dialogue, heartfelt self discovery and a cast of supporting characters that makes for a rich read. I laughed so hard in parts I woke my husband up.
Kate has a real flair for comedy and I adored how she reminded us the right guy is sometimes the guy on the right. Hottie Band Geeks unite!
Love, just LOVE this book. It’s funny, it has drama, it has all the swoon worthy, romantic, sexy parts you could ever want or need. Theo is just... oh so incredible. Laney is the type of girl I want to grow up to be, without the unfortunate taste in music. Together they are an incredible couple and make for an incredible book. I have no hesitation in saying this is my favourite book of the year. Run, don’t walk, to get this book in your life!
I have no words for how much I loved this book !!!! I’ve read it all too fast and I don’t want it to be over ! It had me in fits of giggles , and the all teared up and just feeling all warm and lovey . Laney and Theo are just adorable and fun and so RIGHT together ! Honestly if you’ve been thinking about reading this book do your self a favor and read it !! It’s brilliant !!! Loved it loved it loved it .
