Publisher's Summary

There are three things you need to know about Janie Morris:

She is incapable of engaging in a conversation without volunteering TMTI (Too Much Trivial Information), especially when she is unnerved,
No one unnerves her more than Quinn Sullivan, and
She doesn't know how to knit.
After losing her boyfriend, apartment, and job in the same day, Janie Morris can't help wondering what new torment fate has in store. To her utter mortification, Quinn Sullivan- aka Sir McHotpants- witnesses it all then keeps turning up like a pair of shoes you lust after but can't afford. The last thing she expects is for Quinn - the focus of her slightly, albeit harmless, stalkerish tendencies - to make her an offer she can't refuse.

I was looking for fluffy laugh out loud romance and other silliness with this. But I hated our Hero... he never got better and eventually I couldn't finish. Maybe when I was younger I would have liked to be whisked away by a rich liar who thought he could control everything *for my own good* but now I value honesty and partnership, even in fantasy.

I appreciated our heroines tangential thoughts although sometimes the mental ramblings bored me instead of entertained. It would have been an easy thing to move past if she wasn't so clueless about obvious things and her love interest less of a douche canoe who's only redeeming quality apparently is his god-like looks

Could Not Stop Listening.....

This is a really fun listen. On the surface this is a nerd-gets-hot-guy story, but Janie is not a typical nerd and the author does a good job making her character's insecurities believable and not annoying. Janie is a 26 year old, smart girl that is insecure and querky due to her background. She starts out having a bad day but meets Quinn, the good looking building security guard, that helps her land a new job. They develop a relationship despite Janie's insecurities, ex boyfriend issues and family dramas.

There were parts of the story that were predictable (Janie not realizing Quinn's position in the company), but there is enough other stuff going on with the characters to keep me engaged and listening. I also enjoyed the humor of this story, I liked the eccentric trivia and Janie's internal dialogues.

Over all this is a very solid contemporay romance/ chic-lit story and a highly enjoyable listen. I highly recommend this one - especially at $6 with the Whispersync.
