Smith always delivers the most interesting characters. He makes me chuckle and warms my heart. This story didn't fail. Ian's been in love with Bronwyn since he was a boy. But, every time he gets close to her, he bumbles and stumbles. Finally, he gets his chance to "win the girl of his dreams" and ends up helping to solve their families' "financial crimes."

I didn't love this book (didn't hate it either). It was about a RM finally dating the love of his life. It was written by a guy about a guy and of course from the guy's perspective. Not really a romance as much as a series of events (many comical) that lead the main character, Ian, to where he wants to be in life. I felt no connection to the characters and if you had something else to read, I would probably skip this one. I got it from the library book sale, so if anyone wants it (after that glo...more
Just finished this one. Ian is a rather appealing, if goofy, character in search of true love. His family is slightly off center, and his dad is under suspicion of embezzlement. Ian heads off to college in pursuit of the girl he has loved for years, Bronwyn. But even when things seem to be going well, he can't help tweaking things a bit. Made me laugh at the hamster part.

I just finished this book, and i LOVED it!!!! it was so good! it is a book about this mormon guy named Ian and his obsession for this girl named Bronwyn. it takes you through a series of funny events that happen throughout his life! READ IT! you will love it!
It was an easy quick read. It's not one of my favorites just because of the type of book it is - the unrealistic comic-type book. One main thing that was unrealistic to me was that he actually ended up with the girl he'd liked all his life.

This book is delightfully witty. It makes a suspenseful turn towards the end, which doesn't really fit the author's writing style. But all around, I think this is a good book when you want something silly and easy to read.
This was such a wonderful book. It was hilarious and witty with church history and scriptural references throughout. I really enjoyed the foot in mouth experiences as he was attempting to date.
I really liked this book. He has such an interesting way of writing, and I absolutely love it! Though his best books I wish they would turn into movies ONLY if they did justice to them.
This was my least favorite of Smith's books I have read. Maybe I'm just getting too old to enjoy college romance books. However, there were a couple of really funny parts.

I read this on kindle. I really enjoyed it. I laughed out loud a number of times. I read this very rapidly, as much a credit to the kindle as the quality of the book.
Not the greatest book. I didn't really feel like I understood the main character, but it was very funny in some places. I felt like reading and it was available.
Cute book. The author writes in a witty and somewhat sarcastic manner. I love it. The book made me laugh through it. I am looking forward to read many more of his Novels

A crazy story about a guy finding the girl of his dreams. So many wacky things happened that it almost seemed unbelievable, but it was funny just the same.
This book made me laugh out loud - numerous times. So read it if you want a laugh. It's a really quick read.
This book was funny as a 'spoof' of all the over the top LDS romances out there (at least that is how I read it!).
Kind of cute; kind of dumb. Not my kind of humor. The main character was such a dork that it was annoying.
It started out slow but then picked up. It was funny, but I felt it was more written for YA not Adults.
This is a really funny book. My mom had a hard time reading it to us because she couldn't stop laughing.
Not great but okay. It has a little mystery to it. Read if you don't have anything better.
Hilarious. Yes it's cheesy and absurd 1ds humor, but it's supposed to be, and I laughed hard!
Cute. The ending was a tad underdeveloped, but the characters were fun and silly.
A good book if you are ever in need of a good laugh.
