The one day English teacher Reagan Wild is late for work—and looks like she dressed herself in the dark—she remembers Carter Anthony, a well-known football star, is coming to the school to deliver a talk to her overexcited students.
While Reagan knows Carter from her high school days, since he was her past crush, she wasn't ready to see him again. At the time, she hated being invisible. But right now, she wished she could simply disappear.
Carter Anthony is keen to give back to his hometown, but what he doesn't expect is getting something in return. When a chance encounter with Reagan, the shy girl from his past, happens, he knows instinctively this woman is supposed to be in his life.
With an embarrassing ability to blurt out whatever's on her mind, Reagan doesn't understand Carter's attention. She has no doubt, though, he'll soon realize his mistake when he discovers just how crazy she and her family are. But no matter what he sees, what he hears, or how her looney family behaves, he doesn't run. In fact, Carter's family seem just as unique as hers.
Through dog poop, naked yoga, and the paparazzi's, can Carter and Reagan have any hope in love, even when it's fumbled?
I was not prepared for this book. I don’t know what I was expecting but when I started this I immediately knew I got much, much, more than I thought I would. I certainly didn’t expect Fumbled Love to become one of my favorite books this year, but that’s exactly what happened. Fair warning, prepare to get looks if you’re reading this in public because I promise you that you will end up laughing loudly and hysterically frequently. Lila Rose is spot on when it comes to humor. Brilliantly writing in a way that delivers pure comedic gold while still building an incredibly sweet and romantic story.
Reagan is hands down one of the best characters ever. She’s both wickedly funny and smart while being entirely relatable in a way that makes you wish she would pop out of the book and become your new bestie. Carter, while definitely appreciating all that is Reagan, is much more of the sweet and swoony than laugh out loud. He’s immediately drawn to her before he even realizes their connection from the past and that draw only continues to grow the more he’s around her.
Full of absolute hilarity from Reagan, along with her family and friends and some of the sweetest romance ever this book will have you smiling on every page and make you want to go back and read it again and again!
