One True Pairing: A Geek Girl Rom Com (Fandom Hearts) by [Yardley, Cathy]

Genre:  Romance

Sounded a book I’d love, the Hollywood trope with a heroine who works hard, isn’t a simpering coy miss who falls at his feet.
Sadly though it was an OK read for me that was it, its not a re-reader, and parts dragged and I found myself skimming through. somehow it all became very storm in a teacup stuff.
The fact their “romance” only covers a week, apart from the last few pages meant there had to be some serious chemistry between them for me to believe it, but though there was lust by the bucket load, that was it for me, no real romantic feelings.

I found Haley a bit abrasive at times, I know she had a difficult past, but she verged in outright rude to Jake, and he wasn’t the Hollywood hero I was expecting, but a star on the way up who almost rolled over and let her stomp on him at times.
I like strong women, but I like strong men too, and Jake was just far too trusting of everybody!
There’s one “twist” that was pretty clear very early on but the person it affects was oblivious. That smacked of naivety, a laziness in not checking,  and made me want to shake them….
The story didn’t really have anything more to it than the blurb, very one paced, one plot where I was hoping for more. Its going to be a great read for some but for me it was just an OK one, I didn’t dislike it but didn’t love it either.

Stars: Three, a little bland for me, but that’s OK, others love it, we all want different things.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
