Jordan Collins doesn’t need a man.
What he needs is for his favorite author to release another one of her sexy supernatural novels and more people to sign up for the romance book club that he fears is slowly and steadily losing its steam. He also needs for the new employee at his local bookstore to stop making fun of him for reading things meant for “grandmas.”
The very last thing he needs is for that same employee, Rex Bailey, to waltz into his living room and ask to join Meet Cute Club. Despite his immediate thoughts—like laughing in his face and telling him to kick rocks—Jordan decides that if he wants this club to continue thriving, he can’t turn away any new members. Not even ones like Rex, who somehow manage to be both frustratingly obnoxious and breathtakingly handsome.
As Jordan and Rex team up to bring the club back from the ashes, Jordan soon discovers that Rex might not be the arrogant troll he made himself out to be, and that, like with all things in life, maybe he was wrong to judge a book by its cover.
This book was exactly what I wanted it to be. It was a sweet romance with two realistic characters. This story follows Jordan as he’s trying to save his book club. Meet Cute Club is a book club that reads romance. I was impressed by these members because most book clubs meet once a month and they were meeting once a week, sometimes to talk about more than one book. That is something I would love to be able to do. I liked the members of the book club, but they were all pretty underdeveloped.
I liked Jordan. He was relatable as hell with his love for reading. I liked him, but I wanted more. I wanted to know more about him. I felt similarly about Rex, though we learned more about his past. I thought it was interesting the way his history was shown to be affecting his current actions. I wanted more of his interactions with his sister.
Overall, this was a fun and sweet romance, but it didn’t blow me away. I liked the characters and I was mostly invested in the romance.
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
