Tongan Book Lover
I've honestly been looking forward to reading this book for quite some time because of the teasers and snippets I read. But I hate that I'm disappointed over it. I feel like I've been let down and that I'm letting down the author by not loving it the way I hoped too. I found myself having difficulty trying to connect with the characters and the story. It hurts me to say this but it felt forced. Even when the characters were opening up to each other and it was an emotional scene, I couldn't get ...more

Monday Nights will never be the same.....

This was a fun relatively angst free college romance....the story focuses on Addison and Parker; initially they both seemed to be rather shallow and I did not immediately warm to them...Addison was just a little too feisty and prickly, Parker was too inconsistent in his dealings with her, and both of them blew hot and cold too frequently...... however, slowly but surely their relationship developed and I began to appreciate Addison's strength and Parker’s

This was a good book, but a quick read. It's young adult or new adult, I'm not sure of the distinction yet, but it made me feel old! I thought the characters acted a little too young and immature but I would forget that they were in college. I thought the characters were great, but a few of the secondary characters caught my attention a little bit more than the main characters did.

Addison is a college student with an abusive boyfriend. She made a mistake months back that he still keeps

Liz Lovelock penned a charming tale full of great friendship, family drama, humor, love and romance. It also touched on some deeper issues too such as infidelity, bullying and physical abuse. I thought the characters were very well written and the story moved along with a nice pace to it. I was pleasantly surprised with just how much I enjoyed it. If you like a book that is a quick, cute and light-hearted read, then this one is definitely worth checking out.

This is one book that I had been looking forward to reading as I was a big fan of both Liz's previous series of Lost and Letters in Blood. I have to admit I was hoping for a bit more of a punch with this book and came out slightly disappointed. Overall, if you are looking for a good NA College romance than Monday Night Guy is the read for you but if you are wanting a bit more action than this isn't for you. I felt in parts that the author could have gone deeper as the book starts with our main

Addison and Parker met at a party. Addy already being in a relationship, during a drunken moment, her and Parker kiss. This was a kiss to question everything. But, she feels guilty about the kiss and immediately tells her boyfriend. Well, she's been paying for it ever since. Addison changes, her personality becomes, sorta reclusive, scared, becomes a "little mouse" her relationship is toxic. She becomes meek in character and doesn't show her true self. This story was fast paced college romance. ...more

I will admit that I'm a huge fan of Liz Lovelock. Everything that I've read by Liz has been nothing short of phenomenal so when Monday Night Guy landed in my kindle I couldn't wait to dive in.

Guys let me just say I devoured this novel within hours. I literally couldn't put it down. It was simply perfect.

In short and without giving anything away we meet college students Addison and Parker.
Parker is the all round popular guy. Plays basketball and the girls just adore him (and let's be honest so do

Monday Night Guy is a good read. For me this was a quick read. I was hooked and able to read it in one sitting. Addison is in a bad relationship with Hayden. At first I felt bad for her and thought she was going to be a weak character but when she found her voice and started to show her true self I really liked her. Parker is a great guy. He and Addison have a connection but Addison is just out of a bad relationship and doesn't want to get into another one. Parker is a basketball player and ...more

Monday Night Guy by Liz Lovelock
4 stars
Anyone who knows me knows I love a fast paced college romance. It's nice when I find one where the Hero isn't a A hole player. While Addison thinks Parker is those things he really isn't and Addison hold her own she isn't a weak character like lots of females in these books. This is a great start to q stand alone series and it's very rare I want to go on and read the next but I'm excite to read My Aussie Guy. The only thing I wished we saw was that one game

I had the opportunity of receiving an ARC copy of Monday Night Guy by Liz Lovelock in hopes of leaving an honest review after completion.

Monday Night Guy by Liz Lovelock was the first book that I have read by the author. Monday Night Guy is certainly fast-paced, but in no way does it hinder the story. It actually works in my opinion. I liked the writing and carefully done characterization. However, I wanted more back history between our two main characters, Parker and Addison, just to deepen
It was OK. I didn't hate it, but it was so... flat, for lack of a better term. And formulaic, like the author was checking boxes. Rather underwhelming.

The plot. So much packed in, but at the same time, there's so much undeveloped. It was like the author was going down a checklist of "How to Write A College Sports Romance." Abusive ex? Check. Mean Girl ex? Check. Bad boy player with heart of gold, totally smitten over heroine? Check. Family drama? Check and double check. But nothing really got

College Romance – A good quick read.

Everyone makes mistakes in life – it’s a given. Sometimes the impact of the mistake is worse than the mistake itself, and in Addison’s case, it certainly was. It was a gateway to the abusive relationship suffered by Addison at the hands of her seemingly perfect boyfriend, Hayden, and is something that we as mothers fear for our daughters. She made a mistake and he took it as a reason to be abusive.

She was also the target of bullying, for quite some time by

This is my first book by this author. This book did not overwhelm me. It was a run of the mill college romance. I enjoyed it, it was entertaining, but I didn't feel gripped by the story or the characters. There was some lull here and there, where I just skimmed, there was conflict that was just brushed aside when the author could have used that and made the book a little more meatier. The premise was there, it had me hooked, I just wish there was a little more to it. Told entirely in

So I really enjoyed this book. It was kinda fast paced. But once you get to reading you really get into the story and want to find out all the different issues going on. This book really shows you not to judge a book by it’s cover, or a person by how they seem. That maybe you should get to know someone before you judge. And to not make fun of people or just be mean in general. But it’s also a fun college romance with a sexy basketball player. I can’t wait to read the next book!! And I love all

This is completely different from the authors previous series
It's quirky, fun & a little quick read that I really enjoyed
Addison & Parker aren't what I expected but I loved these 2 characters & watching how things progressed with them
So if you want to find out how this all turns out, then I recommend you one click this book on release day
Congratulations Liz, loved it
Katrina Jay
This was a fun read. There is some hinting at possible physical and emotional abuse, but the author doesn't delve into it too deeply. The hints are relatively subtle, (view spoiler) Otherwise it's relatively free of any major sticking points.

I enjoyed it and it held my interest enough to make it a quick read for me. It's definitely a college age read so if you go into it expecting older adults this isn't what

Who doesn't love the college sport star falling for the quiet unassuming girl? Addison needs to get out of her abusive relationship with Hayden and Parker needs more than just his Barbie groupies when they find each other. Their story has a few ups and downs. I adored their slow burn journey to love. Definitely worth your time to read! Just enough substance to pull you in and enough sweetness that leaves your heart happy.

If you’re looking for a easy, light hearted and cute read, this is it. Monday Night Guy is a college romance and deals with things such a drinking, bullying, physical abuse but also friendship, unspoken loves, lost relationships and romance. Very good read.

Addison and Parker are both at college, both had scumbag partners, but both are total opposites. Addison and her 'girls' Elsie, Willow and Jane all share a dorm room and have each other's backs. Parker, Jimmy and Dane are the same but live in a 'basketball' house due to being star players on the college team. This is 'the getting to know them better' story, mainly Addy and Parker.

I have to say right from the beginning that this age group in a story is not my usual preference however I did enjoy

I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher to review for Stephanie's Book Reports.

Parker Kent is deliciously good looking. The captain of the basketball team. But, he is a complete and utter jerk. I made a vow to steer clear of guys like Parker. But, when he shows up every Monday night at my workplace, that vow is torn to shreds. As much as I'd like to I can't ignore a customer. At some point, a friendship forms. It's not what I expected; he's not what I expected. Those walls I

I've never read this author before and I loved the sound of the blurb, but the story was just OK for me in the end.

"I liked Parker at one stage, but because I rejected him and stayed with my boyfriend, he plays these stupid games."

Addison is stuck in a relationship made toxic by a mistake she made a year earlier. Her life is further made miserable by the antics of Parker Kent, captain of the basketball team and jerk extraordinaire. When her relationship blows up, Parker is suddenly everywhere.

Monday Night Guy, the first installment in Liz Lovelock's My Guy Series was a great, quick, little read! Lovelock reeled me in pretty quickly when she placed the temptation of crush worthy basketball star Parker Kent on my radar. Although Parker was a bit misunderstood at first, his priceless defense of Addison had me begging for more.

I love angst in a novel and at the beginning Lovelock really brought on the angst between Parker and Addison. Her buildup of heat between these two had me turning

I was looking for a good enemy to lovers romance and I found it I Monday Night Guy. Was I blown away by the book? No, I wasn’t but I did enjoy it and felt that it showed a side to some relationships that isn’t made known. Not all abuse is physical, it can be emotional and mental and that is something our heroine is dealing with.

Addy is not a fan of Parker, at all. In fact, she thinks he is a huge jerk
Payne’s Bookworm Reviews (Samantha Payne)

This is a new to me Author, and I can say I wasn’t disappointed.

Monday Night Guy by Liz Lovelock is a college romance that follows the relationship between Parker and Addison.

This story deals with a few challenging issues abuse, bullying and cheating; although these matters are serious the author has written this into the book with a light touch that prevents the book from becoming to dark.

My first initial impression of Addison was that she seemed to have a split personality; one

This was my first book by this author and her first book in this My Guy Series. After reading Monday Night Guy I can not wait for book two. This is an enemies to friend to lovers troupe and I loved how well written it was. It deal with new adult college age. It takes a lot of very important subjects which grabbed me. Addison and Parker shared a very hot kiss at a party sometime ago but actually was in a relationship with Hayden who at the time seemed perfect but instead of choosing Parker she
