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.

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.
A fun story told from the point of view of the guy (not change from it always being about the girl) who is awkward and has a difficult time finding the right things to say. Ian has had a crush on Bonwyn his entire life. I was frustrated for him throughout the entire,enjoyable book.

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.
