Title: "The list"
Book 1 in series The list
Main characters: Simon and Cassie
I voluntarily reviewed an early copy of this book :) I've had this book for a while on my Kindle, but somehow just never got around to reading it... it wasn't until my sister inhaled it in record time and started to pestering me about how awesome it is and how I absolutely have to read it, that I pushed it up on my list... and what a great decision it was... because I absolutely loved this hilarious little gem... let me tell you why ;)
First of all, let's start with the titular list... well... it all started with our heroine, Cassie, and how she wanted to convince her sisters that she's not just some boring soil scientist... that is why she started coming up with all sorts of... sex adventures :) she made up all the stories, but now that the wedding of one of her sisters is coming up, Cassie realizes that she needs to prepare better so she won't be caught up in a lie... so one evening she comes up with a great plan to write all of those stories down... as you can guess, alcohol is involved... and of course she spills something on her laptop and it freezes... yep, with the list smack in the middle of the screen... :) so, mortified, she heads down to the nearest computer shop / repair place... where she gets help from none other but the owner himself :) but she doesn't know it at the time... ;) Simon can't help but be intrigued by the list and the reasons behind creating it... so he offers and she agrees to his help with checking off those points... ;) trust me, it's not as weird as it may sound to some of you :) their whole relationship is absolutely hilarious and awesome to witness ;) now that we have this little explanation out of the way let me tell you about all the reasons why I loved this book so much :)
First of all, the writing style... this was my first book written by Tawna, but definitely not the last... I already have a few others on my wishlist, because I had such an awesome time reading this novel... it was hilarious and sexy but also so surprisingly emotional... especially with Simon's sister Junie... I won't go into more details, cause I don't want to spoil you anything but just... aaaawwwww.... ;) both main characters are great... yes, they have flaws and maybe not the best reactions to certain situations... *coughs* Simon *coughs* but that didn't bother me... mostly because the whole story is written in the most hilarious way :) seriously, reading about all the sex-shenanigans was very entertaining... ;) and to see how during all those adventures Simon and Cassie grew closer to one another was just a lovely bonus :) it's definitely a sort of story for a lighter mood... when you want something fun and easy to read... a book that you will just fly through and have a lot of fun doing it... ;) with entertaining main characters, phenomenal writing style and one hilarious adventure after another this little gem is pure perfection... I highly recommend you to give it a try if you haven't already... I'm definitely gonna go back to not only this series, because yes, there is a sequel about someone we meet in this story but I won't spoil you who... ;) it's easy to find if you really want to know especially since that second book is already available... PS my sister read the sequel as well and loved it ;) but I will definitely read more books by this author... someone who can make me snort-laugh as much as she did in public places is definitely someone I will read again... ;)
