Girl least likely to Marry - Amy Andrews

Talk nerdy to me 

 

Samuel Tucker is absolutely the last person scientist Cassie Barclay would ever date. Yes, he's gorgeous, but he's also far too cocky for his own good and thinks that Pi is a tasty afternoon treat. So when he asks her to dance at her friend Reese's non-wedding she's wondering why on earth she says yes! 

 

Tuck is used to people assuming he's all brawn and no brain, and amuses himself by winding Cassie up. But when he finally takes her to bed, suddenly it's Tuck who can show Cassie a thing or two! Can he convince her that love and sex have nothing to do with logic and everything to do with chemistry?

Ok so I'm afraid to say I really did not like this book. It was long, pretty dull and lifeless. The characters didn't really do much for me and being a 31 year old myself found it a bit off putting that a 30 year old was still at college doing a PHD and her friends still had a very childish name for themselves.The plot itself was actually OK, but everything together just didn't sit right with me. I found myself pretty switched off and in some parts struggling to keep my eyes open. I did try my best to get into it on a few occasions, but It just did not pick up my interest at all unfortunately.

 

I had a few issues with it too. These being Cassie's constant sniffing of Tuck. The worst parts being when she sniffs his arm pits and penis to get off on. I don't think I know anyone at all who would think that a turn on do you?
I also know it's supposed up he all scientific and the like the Big Bang Theory, but it really went on and didn't stop. I'm all for geekiness and learning, but this was boring.

 

Last but not least, as you know I'm scouse so regardless of which country the word kitten heels comes from in a book or anything for that matter I cringe and die inside. So when the word sparkly kitten heels is seen I want to kill myself, the person wearing them, and in this case the author. Why do people not realise that kitten heels are a no go? Vile they are! I've got a broken pelvis for crying out loud but still if needs be my crutches are highered up and the Vivienne Westwood skyscrapers are donned. Girls/authors come on please no more kitten heels.

 

Sorry, bit of a rant there. 

 

This is a series book and I actually haven't read the first one so maybe I'm missing out on something and that's why I disliked the book. I'm a big fan of Harlequin kiss and their choices usually so I'm a bit deflated by this.

 

1/5
