Of Octopuses and Men
My grandparents’ grumpy neighbor is as hot as the lethal Florida sun. And like the sun, he’s bad for me. My taste in men is the worst—just ask my ex and his restraining order.
What am I doing in Florida with my grandparents, you wonder? Well, my best friend is an octopus, and he needs a bigger tank, so I took a job at an aquarium in the Sunshine State.
I didn’t expect that sexy, long-haired grump to try to buy my octopus for some nefarious purpose. Nor did I expect to make out with him during a late-night swim at the beach.
And the last thing I expected was to run into him on my first day at my new job… where he’s my boss.
NOTE: This is a standalone, raunchy, slow-burn romantic comedy featuring a sun-phobic marine biologist, her scorching hot grump of a boss, and an octopus who likes to go on walks in his mobile tank. If any of the above is not your cup of tea, run far, far away. Otherwise, buckle in for a laugh-out-loud, feel-good ride.
Such a fun read!
Another fun read from on of the Hyman girls! Olive was pretty tame compared to some of her sisters books. She has a weird obsession with mermaids. I should say she has a weird obsession with sunscreen as well, but let's face it, she's right about UV damage so I can't even fault her.
We got to meet the grandparents in this book and I adored them. The grandma had a few cringe worthy moments but that does explain why Olive's mom is the way that she is. I think you really can die of embarrassment if you lived through some of what Olive and her sisters had to experience with this family. It makes for an entertaining read for sure.
Last but not least, Oliver was drool worthy. Based off his descriptions, I couldn't help but search for pictures to fit him and I found some good ones! I just love how these hunky men fall for these slightly neurotic women and love them all the more for it.
Creative and Hilarious Romance
I loved this creative adult romantic comedy which tells the hilarious and steamy story of Olive and Oliver who are both marine biologists. Add in her quirky family, an ex-boyfriend, a wiener dog named Tofu, and Beaky the octopus and you have all the makings for a laugh out loud adventure. I highly recommend this well written and imaginative book with its amazing characters, fun self talk, witty banter, and humor.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Such a lively and entertaining read! Lots of humor, innuendo and goofiness wrapped up into a quickie. Could not put it down!
