Anti-Romance (Anti-Romance #1) by Cassia Leo
- This is NOT a romance. This is a hilariously screwed-up love story.
- This book does NOT have a typical happily-ever-after.
- The hero and heroine in this book are NOT billionaires who look like supermodels. They are normal people, like you and me.
Laney Hill is screwed. On the bed. On the treadmill. On the hood of a BMW. And on her boss’s desk. Then she’s screwed again when she steps into the free clinic and finds out she has gonorrhea. That dirty prick gave her gonorrhea! She’s totally going to break up with him...until he breaks up with her...because he’s married!
A night out drinking with friends leads to a fateful--yet awkwardly-sloppy--kiss between her and her best friend George Bratton.
George has been single and pining for his ex-girlfriend ever since their breakup two years ago. When his ex invites him to her destination wedding in London, self-destructive George and gonorrhea survivor Laney make a deal to go as each other’s dates. It will make great material for Laney’s “Anti-Romance” blog and maybe it will help George finally get over his ex. Nothing could possibly go wrong, right?
As a born and bred Texan, I connected to the story instantly. I love Austin because of the music, food, and people. It's truly a one of a kind city, and Cassia dived into it perfectly.
Laney Hill is a blogger about romance. But instead of writing about happily ever afters, she posts about previous dates to prove that romance is dead. Her worst experience was getting an STI. Yet she still hopes that one day Mr. Right will come into her life.
Somehow she gets stuck in a position where two really nice guys are pinning for her. One is her best friend, and the other is the sexy musician neighbor. I have to say no one writes steamy love scenes like Cassia Leo.... it gets pretty HOT!
Anti-Romance is a quick and funny read, full of awkward moments. This jaw dropping story is addicting, and I can't wait to get my hands on the next book.
