My rating: 5 Stars
I absolutely adored this book! It had me laughing out loud from the first page. I loved Rachel Blaufeld's writing style. It helped me connect with the characters even more and I felt like they were friends telling me a story than a book I was reading. I loved the romance and how it actually progressed naturally for Andi and Reid. Nothing felt rushed and I think the steamy scenes were well done. There were not too many of them and they did not overshadow the story at all.
Andi was snarky, funny, sweet, and caring. It was clear she cared for her family and was a great mother willing to do anything for her daughter. Something—that wasn't named for a while—happened to make her become this blogger who calls other bloggers out on their sh*t. Say if it's a blog about someone who claims to be frugal and show you how to live on a budget, she would create a snarky posts that calls them out for spending a year's worth of wages on one shopping spree or calling mother's out for using their families for their gain. Andi is a single mother who has to make money to take care of her little girl and her blog has grown to be successful in a way that allows her to get big time advertisers and really expand her brand. The blog is mean-spirited even if the things she says are true. I also felt like it was a bit hypocritical for Andi to call people out on doing things for advertisers when she was doing the same thing but she justified it by saying she was doing it for her daughter but most of the bloggers she attacked were mothers too. I found this dynamic to be amazing and loved how Andi started to see that maybe the route she took wasn't the best one no matter the reasons.
Reid is a statistics professor by day and a shirtless blogger by night. He runs a grilling and grooming blog—Grill and Groom—that he started on a dare and it took off, becoming more successful than he ever could have imagined. Something else he couldn't imagine was liking it so much. The problem is that his bosses at the university seem to think it's not appropriate for one of their professors to run a blog where he's shirtless. Reid doesn't want to give up his blog so he turns to UnAffectionate Blogger for advice since he sees how successful it is and just wants to know what he should do. Reid also has advertisers and gets opportunities during the novel to expand his blog. He's doing something he loves and talking about what he wants to talk about without tearing down someone else's choices.
Reid is unaware that Andi runs UnAffectionate Blogger so when they meet for the first time when she is out on Halloween with her daughter and her daughter's friend, Andi doesn't tell him. She lets him believe she is just a medical transcriber like she tells everyone except her sister and her sister's husband, James. Andi knows who Reid is since she has been stalking his blog as per her sister's insistence once James becomes interested in the blog. Reid and Andi's relationship starts with that chance meeting. They start to run into each other after that and Reid is able to get Andi to go on a date with him. Of course Andi and Reid will have some things to figure out since Reid does not know that Andi is the blogger he has been corresponding with for advice.
I loved Reid and Andi together. They were cute and amazing. It was clear Andi was dealing with some things that made her cautions about getting into a relationship plus she wants to do what is best for her daughter. The supporting cast of this book was excellent. There were not too many that I got lost with who was who and they added to the story. The secondary characters did not seem to just be there for the sake of being there. Leona was the typical older, nosy, and pushy neighbor who made things happen between Reid and Andi on more than one occasion. Gabby was a peppy and so adorable. Delia—Andi's twin sister—was too funny and so dramatic. I loved James and the kids as well. The story was amazing and funny and I really enjoyed reading it. It only took me a few days and that was only because I had to work. As soon as I got some uninterrupted time, I devoured this book.
