The Leftover by Brooke Williams is adorable. It is told between Megan Malone a sweet super innocent loner and Cane Trevino a rejected reality star who has had his heart broken on television.
This book is Rom Com at its finest. Megan is talked into being on a reality show The Leftover (kind of a local Surviver type show) after her sister is unable to participate due to pregnancy. Megan is not really outdoorsy and socially awkward. She works from home and stays to her self and never even had a relationship. Although her character is supposed to be innocent Megan at times was almost too innocent based on her age. I had trouble remembering she was nearly 30 abased on her experience level with the opposite sex (she has never even been kissed) Although her character was so funny and I can tell the show really made her be someone else and find more of herself. She was a great character to get to know and so easily loved. Williams did a great job bringing her quirks and other insecurities to life and turned her into an awesome BFF character.
Now onto Cane. His character isn't as innocent but from his inner dialogue he almost is to perfect. Not many books are written where the male character falls in love easily. It was a big change from what i am used too. Although despite that his character was so sweet and would make a cute book boyfriend for quiet shy Megan.
Both Cane and Megan together though you can definitely tell the chemistry and they do not even deny their attraction. It was refreshing to see the characters did not skirt around the issue just came out and said it maybe wondered a little about reality vs show but still all in all they knew they liked each other just a few road blocks like any relationship.
If you are looking for a super fun, easy, clean read this is for you.
April Richwine definitely has the voice for quirky Megan. Although I kind of wish the book was done with a male narrator as well but Richwine did not to bad being both. Especially since it was not in 1st person it still worked. She did well making the different character stand out and it was clear and easy to understand. All and all was pretty good.
I received this audio book in exchange for an honest review
