Blurb

 

The one day English teacher Reagan Wild is late for work—and looks like she dressed herself in the dark—she remembers Carter Anthony, a well-known football star, is coming to the school to deliver a talk to her overexcited students.
While Reagan knows Carter from her high school days, since he was her past crush, she wasn’t ready to see him again. At the time, she hated being invisible. But
right now, she wished she could simply disappear.
Carter Anthony is keen to give back to his hometown, but what he doesn’t expect is
getting something in return. When a chance encounter with Reagan, the shy girl
from his past, happens, he knows instinctively this woman is supposed to be in
his life.
With an embarrassing ability to blurt out whatever’s on her mind, Reagan doesn’t understand Carter’s attention. She has no doubt, though, he’ll soon realize his mistake when he discovers just how crazy she and her family are. But no matter what he sees, what he hears, or how her looney family behaves, he doesn’t run. In fact,
Carter’s family seem just as unique as hers.
Through dog poop, naked yoga, and the paparazzi, can Carter and Reagan have any hope in love, even when it’s fumbled?
My review:
This book is hilarious! Reagan, her family, Carter’s family, all had me literally laughing out loud from beginning to end. Reagan is a high school English teacher and Carter is a local boy turned NFL star who is retiring and moving back to their town. He is at the school for a visit and is instantly attracted to Reagan’s wit and humor. Reagan won’t herself believe he would be interested in someone like her, so keeps pushing the friends idea.  Their entire relationship (before they are even in a ‘relationship’) is so good. They are really good together.
What I liked: This is such a funny read! Reagan, her best friend Brooke, her dad and his friendship/rivalry with Tom, Reagan and Brooke’s principal, all of their families – the characters really make this one special. I also liked that this isn’t an instalove story – they both resist moving forward in their relationship until Carter is done with his season and has the time to put into their relationship.  I also love the messages in the book.
What I didn’t like: There is only one thing that bugged me, and it was so minor that it doesn’t even detract from the story. One character is a biker, and the author refers to his “MC club.” MC + motorcycle club, so it basically reads “motorcycle club club.”
Overall: Get this book TODAY! It’s so fun, and sweet, and hilarious.
