Sloane is the kind of romantic comedy where the reader doesn’t know what to expect from a woman like her, and that’s what makes this book special.
The reader is introduced to Sloane when she is trying to check in to a hotel and she’s less than happy with the hotel employee assisting her. She has the wit and sarcasm that most people will enjoy in a woman like her, and it makes for a main character that people will either love or hate. In this instance, most readers will definitely enjoy the banter that Sloane gives to those she interacts with throughout this novel.
While Sloane may be the kind of woman that is unpredictable in many ways, Andy is the complete opposite. He is considered boring. In fact he is considered the “most boring guy in the world”, with his father in the accounting world and – being the dutiful son that he is – ends up meeting Sloane at another of his father’s work Galas. What is interesting about Andy – and may not make him a boring guy at all – is that he can see right through Sloane’s act, and that is something that she has never come up against before. It’s a wonder how these two will end up coming to terms with one another and getting involved in a romantic comedy.
I have a special place in my heart for this novel because I grew up with the author back in Hawaii, and I am extremely proud to see his writing skills grow into what I’m seeing in this novel. Kurch has done an amazing job making Sloane into a character that I love to hate, but also want to see succeed in her many cons. He has also given the character of Andy enough heart and quirks to make me want him to get out of his father’s shadow and live more of his life in the way that he wants to. I am very excited to see how the second book in the Sloane series turns out and I’m glad to be able to support Kurch in his journey.
