<em. You can never judge the depths by the surface...
For Cohen Rodriguez, getting dumped by his girlfriend was bad enough. Being told he's "not impulsive enough" was just the cheap parting gift. Still, he takes a break from his über responsible ways and dates his way through Silver Strand. Except it's not exactly turning out the way he thought...
On top of that, there's Maren Walshe, whose combination of sexy and down-to-earth is everything Cohen wants in a girl. But while they've recently been talking on the phone and texting every day, they've never actually met. Now Maren wants to meet. In person.
Faced with turning his oh-so-safe fantasy girl into an uncertain reality, Cohen and Maren are both about to dive head first, ready or not.
Kassiah: OMG I loved this book! After Cohen’s long-term girlfriend unexpectedly breaks up with him, citing that he’s boring and predictable, he goes on a string of dates that end in epic disaster. Trouble is, there is one girl who’s been on his mind–Maren, the mysterious problem-solver who works for his family’s business. They’ve never met face-to-face, but they’ve talked on the phone for months about orders, shipping, and sales, and sometimes things got a little personal. Cohen’s put her up on a pedestal as his dream girl, but does it have to stay that way? When they meet in real life, sparks fly, but Maren isn’t ready for any kind of relationship, though. She’s been taking care of her alcoholic father for years and can’t pull anyone as awesome as Cohen into her mess of a life. What will it take for Cohen to make Maren see that they’re perfect for each other?
A lot of people don’t know that about me, but my husband and I met through work. We talked on the phone for months about orders and counts before we ever met in real life. Of course, I thought he had a totally sexy voice 😉 and it wasn’t long before we met IRL. Six months later, we got married, and the rest is (ongoing) history. ♥ So, even though neither of us had anything going on like Cohen and Maren do, I can relate to falling in like with someone over the phone.
I don’t believe in love at first sight. …But love at first phone call, I’d buy.
I loved the way this story was told, in both Cohen and Maren’s points of view, and I really loved both of them. Cohen was such a great guy, and he was so sexy!
“I love freckles.”
I loved their families and their chemistry and pretty much everything about this. There were some things that drove me crazy, of course, like Maren’s wishy-washy-ness and her complete inability to see what was going on with her dad at first. I was so happy that everything wasn’t all wrapped up in a bow at the end, though it was happy. And Cohen’s bromance with his best friend, Deo, was awesome, and I am so excited to read the next book in the series.
