Awkward. – Lily Kate


I know how things look from the outside. I’m rich. I’m a successful surgeon. I’m handsome. I should have women lining up from here to New Jersey clawing for space in my bed, but there’s one huge catch.

I’m f*cking awkward. 

Every time I get a date, I spoil it. Asked if she’s pregnant? Check. Forgot her name? Check. Bought a meat lover’s pizza for my vegan girlfriend? Check, check, check.

This is why my best friend, romance fanatic Allie Jenkins, has declared that she’s swooping in to save the day. She’s prepared a list of required reading straight from The Ripped Bodice, and I’m supposed to take notes, learn from the best, and put that shit into action. After all, practice makes perfect, right?


I’d like to thank Give Me Book Promotions for sending me an e-arc of this, the description drew me to this immediately and I loved every moment of this book! I was hooked from the start!

I loved Allie and how she was willing to help Jack with everything, and their friendship, I also loved how every Sunday night they had a little takeaway date. It was so cute, I loved how sarcastic she was. I loved that she was also awkward but in a different way to Jack. They were both awkward but differently. Together they worked perfectly.

Jack, oh my god, he was funny although some of the stuff he was doing was rude when it came to dates and offensive. It was hilarious. I loved how much he cared for Allie.

Jack and Allie both represent what it is like to love your best friend and yet be scared that if you act on it the relationship will change. Being that I’ve been in that situation I get where both Jack and Allie were coming from, it’s hard and you have to weigh in the good and the bad options for changing their relationship. Lucky for them two it worked and they managed to not destroy their friendship by having a relationship. At times it was dicey and sometimes at times they were both willing at different times to try and go back to being friends but with both fighting for each other. I loved their relationship and it’s a positive that it turned good for them. From best friends to love.

I love how Allie went into blogging about Jack and it was really good to see blogging in stories. I also loved how much books were mentioned and that she got Jack to read some romance stories!

Basically, in short, I loved everything about this novel and it was so cute and lovely and it was what I needed to read!
