What I wanted for my birthday: Books.
What I got for my birthday: my brother’s best friend playing matchmaker.
Let it be known that I, Kinsley Lane, am one hundred percent against being set up with somebody.
And I’m one thousand percent sure that Josh Carter is not the man to find me a boyfriend.
I mean, if I’m so great, why isn’t he the one dating me? (For the record, I don’t know the answer. That’s just what the guy on the internet asked.)
Still, I’ll humor him. If I go on his little dates, he’ll teach my bookish, introverted self how not to be totally, completely, utterly, unforgivably awkward on every single one of them.
And all I have to do is fall in love with one of the lovely gentlemen he’s serving up for me on a silver platter—all of whom fit my very specific guidelines.
It would be.
If only I could stop falling for Josh.
The Bookworm’s Guide to Dating follows the story of Kinsley and Josh. Kinsely is the ultimate bookworm. She’s addicted to the written word and wants nothing more for her birthday than books. However, Kinsley got more than she bargained for. The last thing she wanted was for her brother’s best friend to try and set her up. In spite of everything, Kinsley finds herself going along with Josh’s plan. Seems simple enough. Too bad Kinsley ended up falling for Josh instead….
Overall, I thought that this was a really cute book. Kinsley could be my soul sister. She’s an introvert who is completely addicted to books. However, when it comes to real-life romance, she’s a complete wreck. So, when Josh offers to help Kinsely find Mr. Right, she can’t help but jump at the offer. Unbeknownst to Kinsley, Josh has had a crush on her for the longest time and never acted on it because Kinsley’s brother is his best friend. The last thing he really wants to do is set Kinsley up with another man, but maybe, just maybe this might be what Josh needs to finally get over the woman he can’t have.
The Bookworm’s Guide to Dating is a fun and entertaining read. The characters are real and easy to connect with. Josh and Kinsley’s romance is the ultimate slow burn that will leave you begging for more. Their story has the perfect balance of romance, drama, humor, and sexy good times.
When it comes to romantic comedies, Emma Hart never disappoints. This story is filled with her signature heart and humor. Josh and Kinsley’s story stole my heart and I had the best time getting lost in their story.
