What do ice cream and Sadie Montgomery have in common? They’re both ice cold, but one taste is never enough.I wanted to be friends — I would have even settled for her seeing me as anything but a nerd — but there was no getting through. So just like any hard-headed, red-blooded man out there, I made up my mind.I’d make my coworker fall for me.I’d like to say it was simple, but like every other epic love story, all it took was one drunken night and a lot of naked courage to get the girl. For a moment, at least.Love with a coworker is never simple, especially since Sadie’s trying to keep us on the low. Not to mention her persistent ex-boyfriend who won’t leave her alone. But I’ve never been good at giving up, and I don’t plan to start now.The whole thing is a recipe for a rocky road, but I plan to eat the whole gallon, no matter how bad the brain freeze.
I am officially in love with a nerd. Yup, you heard that right. I love the nerd with the calculator collection, his name is Andrew and you are just going to swoon your little heart out when you meet him. At first I could not see what he and Sadie were going to have in common, besides work and their love of baseball. Sadie was such a pessimistic character, however she had good reasons.
“I’m a realist, someone who sees the world as it is: dull and grey with limited potential.”
Andrew was just the light she needed in her life. He is so sweet and funny and determined to get to know Sadie. I loved how he was always trying to get her to smile and laugh with his antics.
“You know that laugh of yours, the one you so annoyingly keep hidden? You should really use it more often because it can brighten some of the darkest of days.”
Then comes the heat. NEVER would have imagined the amazing connection that would spark between them. There was a lot of resistance emotionally on Sadie’s part and I really couldn’t blame her, once you hear her past you’ll understand why. Physically on the other hand…WOW resistance was futile. There was NO WAY she was going to be able to stay away for long…
“My body ignites. I’m hot for the nerd.”
Watching their relationship develop was sweet. You can feel the embarrassment and the hurt they have both suffered in the past but you can also feel things shift for them. This is not just a book about a boy and a girl. The idea behind it is based on a real life love story and it’s just perfect!!! Thank you for sharing this with us Meghan <3 <3
