Battle of the Bulge is book four in the OHellNo series by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff. I’ve loved this series from the first book but still, really had no idea what to expect with this one. And of course, in the usual Mimi Jean way, I was surprised as heck! I’m adding this to my suspense shelf as well because oh my gosh, it really was suspenseful!

Favorite Quotes:

There’s a market for everything these days. Example: the horrible swimsuits Mr. Jackass wears from his sponsor, Weeno. They have things like panda or elephant faces on the front, positioned just so, in order to make the animal’s nose protrude like little penis puppets.

A generous salami does not make up for his despicable personality.

We cussed like two pirates at a rum festival.

Damn, someone should write a bad country song about it…Kissed at dusk. Dumped at dawn. Pumped my heart

What a fun book! This is a romantic comedy filled with with some over-the-top scenes that really had me laughing out loud.

There heroine was awesome. She was such a contradiction. The book starts out with her training to be a bodyguard and then we learn that she was a really shy child. I was expecting to see her fumble in this new career of hers. Instead she turned out to be really good at it.

Mitch is another contradicting character. He comes off pretty egotistical in the beginning but you soon

4.5 stars

Mimi manages to put her heroines in the most ridiculous of situations, saying the most outrageous things and making absolute fools of themselves. And somehow, it makes them all the more lovable and endearing. I honestly thing that I am seeing into the heart of the author when I read her stories because they all have the same quirky humor in them that couldn’t exist if it didn’t genuinely exude from Mimi herself. Her stories are all adorable and unique and Battle of the Bulge does not di

Another outstanding book from MJP. We first met Abi and Mitch in the last book but this book can be read as a standalone. I would still recommend reading the previous three because they are just awesome. Mimi's New Adult-Sports-Romantic-Comedy blend is typical Mimi; humorous situations, dirty jokes, characters you want to throttle at times and always a romance that hits the spot.
Abi is smart and very loyal to those she loves so when her mom hits a rough patch and is on the verge of lo

Mimi Jean does it again! This time she brings us an Aussie world class gold medal swimmer, Mitch Hofer (that name still puzzles me) and Abi Carter quiet, smart student now turned bodyguard to make some money and best friends with Georgie. Abi has history with Mitch, a one perfect night, no sex, that ends up with him tossing her clothes in her face and shoving her out the door. She hates Mitch. Mitch doesn't think women should be bodyguards. The tension between the two went from hysterical to I w ...more

Another hilarious romcom for the Ohellno series! Luckily, they can all be read as stand-alones as each book centers around different characters so previous books would give you a some back story on other characters and some deeper insight into their friendships, but you could easily dive into this book first.
Abi and Georgie are the kind of best friends that push each other out of their comfort zones constantly. Abi has always been shy but fiercely protective. When her dad dies and her mom is in

Prepare for a rollercoaster of laughs.

What do you get when you take a shy girl with a protective streak, add an excessively endowed hot Australian swimming megastar, and allow Mimi Jean Pamfiloff to tell their story? You get hidden agendas, misdirects, a speedo warehouse full of snarky nicknames, and a riot of laughs. Basically, you get a great book.

This was a fun read from start to finish. Abi is striking out on a new career for herself as a bodyguard and Mitch is her first client and he’s not too impressed to have a female guarding him.
The story had me hooked with it’s charismatic male lead “The Bulge” Mitch Hofer, an Olympic swimmer and swimwear model (his nickname just cracked me up) and Abi, his enthusiastic bodyguard. To add interest, the chemistry between them is out of this world but Mitch, who is really quite a nice guy, comes acr

Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars

Battle of the Bulge was a hilarious yet heartfelt novel filled with all the raunchy, snarky goodness I expect out of Mimi Jean Pamfiloff’s work. What I wasn’t expecting was to fall absolutely head over heels for Mitch and Abi, or to be so surprised by the final epic plot twist. (Why do I picture MJP laughing and saying “Excellent” a la Monty Burns when she reads that last sentence?)

Mimi’s OHellNo series might as well be called OHe

I've read this entire series and it just gets better with each book.  But what really sets this one apart is that even though the "bulge" is talked about all throughout the book, this is a sweet romance that relies on the characters and their dialogue instead of the smexy times.  Sure the smexy times are more at the end of the book and its hawt, but we really get to know Abi and Mitch.  Plus, come on, no one writes a rom-com like Ms. Pamfiloff.  I couldn't help but giggle throughout most of the ...more

BATTLE OF THE BULGE is the 4th book in the OHellNo series. It's actually my first read from Mimi Jean Pamfiloff but I had no problems jumping right into the middle of this series!

Mitch Hofer is an Australian Olympic swimmer who's known for more than just his skills in the pool. But he's in need of a bodyguard and Abi Carter just happens to be perfect for the role. The only problem? Mitch and Abi's almost one-night stand and the fact that they can barely stand to be in the same room together!

Thank you to Mimi and her team for the ARC copy of this!!!

I think a few tears slid down my leg while I was reading this!


Mimi has really let her natural snark lose in this, the fourth book in the OHellNo series, I'm thinking this is the best so far!
I absolutely loved it!
This time we get Abi and Mitch's chance at a HEA, and Mimi goes crazy!

A delightfully fun and fast paced rom-com

I'm not sure quite what I was expecting from this book. Having read some of the other OhHellNo books I knew this would be really well written and highly entertaining with some great characters to boot. What I didn't expect was the very witty plot that twisted this way and that and in some totally unexpected directions. In fact at one point I though MJP had dropped the ball and left a very loose thread in the story line, but no a few paragraphs later she

This is a reluctant 4 stars for me. I laughed a lot and totally fell in love with Mitch. But I just couldn't get behind the heroine. On one hand I live the idea of a female body guard. But I didn't like this female body guard.

Anyway this book was well written and is sure to be a hit for anyone who enjoys insta love and a well endowed athlete.

I love how Mimi mixes together new characters with previous characters in the series; in Battle of the Bulge, we literally get to catch up with all of them, YAY.

Adorkable heroines and douche to darling heroes make up the OhHellNo series with lots of sass to accompany the steam, Battle of the Bulge is no exception. However, Mimi takes it a step further with the addition of thriller elements when Mitch is life is threatened and a bounty placed on his head!!! With Abi’s new career as a bodyguard in

Forth installement in the ohhellno! Series.

Featuring character cameos from the previous books, Abi and Mitch.. who we met in book 3..this book is a wonderful mix of enemies to lovers/RomCom/contemporaryRomance and a thriller all rolled into one. This book is independent enough to be read as a standalone, but there are too many great characters with their own interesting back story for it to be read as so. If you haven’t read the earlier books in the series.. and to enjoy it at its fullest I wou
Absolutely fantastic!!!! Once again M.J. writes another amazing, LOL book of awesomeness! I loved the dynamics, and the flow of the story. Of course the characters are perfectly written and leave you unable, or unwilling to put it down.

Abi is a riot! I love her! She is one baddass and hilariously snarky bodyguard. Miss Mimi has become one of my favorite go-to authors. She never fails to entertain. I also learned some interesting new slang words, my favorite being crunt. Want to know what the heck I'm talking about? Go read and find out. Another satisfying read.

Soooo... I’m in the minority here, the reviews for this book have been high. Yet I found it to be simply ok. This was my first time reading something from this author. While it wasn’t horrible- the story was silly.

The light-hearted nature was ok- considering I was reading some pretty dark stuff prior to this story. But overall this was a 2 star rating reading for me. The chemistry between Abi and Mitch was lacking... even the report of them being in love- had me scratching my head

This is book #4 in the OH Hello No book series. You do not need to read the books in the series as they are each standalones. The characters from the other books do interact within this one but everything is explained as you know who they are.

In this book we have Mitch Hofer, he is Australia living and training in the US. Mitch is a swimming legend. He’s 25, and looking to compete in his next Olympics in 2020. Mitch is very proud of his looks, muscles and his “package”. His swimsuit modeling de

This is another hilarious read by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff! Battle of the Bulge is a standalone romantic comedy in her OHellNo series that features the protective Abi and the cocky Olympic swimmer Mitch. At first I wasn’t sure about Abi being a bodyguard, but she actually fits the role well. She is self-sufficient, a loyal friend, a loving daughter, and a bit snarky which makes her an entertaining, quirky character - the type of friend that I would love to have in my corner.

Well the wait was worth it, and I am so happy to have finally read the fourth book in this series. I stumbled across the first one, quickly moving to the second, waiting and waiting for the third, and finally reading the fourth. We get to meet Mitch at the end of the third book, and of course Abi is a friend of Georgie's so we have met her before. Each book in the series has left ya hanging wanting more, and I promise each time the wait is worth it. Abi is a single girl who likes to take care of ...more

Abi is in need of a change of pace. So she decides to do what any normal person would do... She becomes a bodyguard. Who's sexy body is she guarding? None other than "the Bulge" himself, Mitch Hofer. Unlike everyone else, Abi doesn't fawn over him. Well, she might have if he hadn't humil

Battle of the Bulge by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff is one of those fun, loving, and quirky books that you can't put down. I loved it as soon as I picked it up and dived in. Such a great read. I loved the story line and the characters were phenomenal.
