I know how things look from the outside. I’m rich. I’m a successful surgeon. I’m handsome. I should have women lining up from here to New Jersey clawing for space in my bed, but there’s one huge catch.
I’m f*cking awkward.
Every time I get a date, I spoil it. Asked if she’s pregnant? Check. Forgot her name? Check. Bought a meat lover’s pizza for my vegan girlfriend? Check, check, check.
This is why my best friend, romance fanatic Allie Jenkins, has declared that she’s swooping in to save the day. She’s prepared a list of required reading straight from The Ripped Bodice, and I’m supposed to take notes, learn from the best, and put that shit into action. After all, practice makes perfect, right?
Awkward is the first book I’ve read by Lily Kate and I’m so excited that I have discovered a new to me author that I look forward to reading more from. This book is a funny, sweet and addictive friends to lovers romance. I seriously couldn’t put it down. I tried. I had some other things to do but I kept finding myself taking breaks from other tasks just so I could read a little bit more.
Jack and Allie have been best friends since they were children. Their families run in the same circle so you would think that they would naturally end up together, right? Nope. These two have friend zoned each other. To an extent. So when Allie offers up her advice to help Jack get over his extreme awkwardness that he has on dates, it should be easy. Yet, it isn’t. Both of them start to realize that their feelings for the other might just be more than platonic but neither of them really know what to do with it.
I adored both Jack and Allie. They are actually both awkward in their own way and are perfect for each other. From the first moment we get of them I knew they were perfect for each other and I was rooted for them from the start. It was cute how hard Allie was working to push Jack on a date when it was clear that all he wanted was her. And once he realized that, I started to swoon so hard over him. This one sentence allowed Jack to steal my heart. Once you read the book, you’ll understand just how amazing these four words are.
“Allie is my extraordinary.”
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. If you are looking for a sweet, sexy and addictive story, then this is the book for you. You’ll laugh. You’ll swoon. Ultimately, you’ll fall in love with their awkwardness. I had so much fun with this and I can’t wait to read more from this author!
