Wonderfully Strange (Stupid Awesome Love, #4.5)

My knight in shining armor is a petite woman brandishing a wet towel as a sword. And damn she knows how to use it.

I’m Gabriel Chang, first assistant to Michael Petrov, the wealthiest businessman in Manhattan, and I’m in love with Lulu Jimenez. My love for her is embarrassingly instant after she saves me from getting beat up by a couple of goons. She's pretty much my hero.

This book was such a fun read with the well written storyline and characters that were so well rounded that I was hooked from the very beginning! The banter between Gabriel and Lulu was fun and the chemistry between these two kept me turning the pages until the very end!

I received an ARC from the author and I’m happy to give my honest review.

This was a quick read about Gabriel and Lulu. I was intrigued by their characters in the previous book and enjoyed getting to know them more in this novella.

Gabriel is an executive assistant to his ultra rich boss Petrov. He volunteers to serve papers to a former employee who harassed women in the company. He’s young and kind of naive so ends up getting beat up by the guy’s hired protection. Lulu saves his bacon and helps

I'm in love with Gabriel and Lulu. They had the most awesome, hilarious relationship ever! I just couldn't with their banter. It was that good! Though I am still a Misha girl, Gabriel is falling into a close second.
The fact that he isn't Alpha draws me in. Calling Lulu, a female, his good knight and knight in shining armor is something to swoon over. Lulu doesn't fall behind calling him her damsel and this is the kind of relationship I aspire to have.
Overall this was a very good short read and

This is the 3rd book I've read written by Ceri Grenelle; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I will definitely be reading more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

This was a fun, feel-good romance.

Lulu meets and is instantly intrigued by Gabriel. When she rescues him from a smack-down, their relationship blooms quickly into a friendship with romance hovering in the wings.

I loved the banter between the main characters, and their chemistry was obvious & tangible. Their interactions were witty and funny, too.

Ceri Grenelle really does quirky romance well. I recommend this book.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

Since discovering Ceri Grenelle I Can’t get enough of her books, very emotional and sexy.
Wonderfully strange is the 4.5 book of her first impressive series which I started because the the first book was free, 2 days later I had read the 2 other ones and preordered the 4th and this novella.
Highly recommended

This was an incredibly fun book. There is frank and conversational narration, dialogue that is so nonchalant in its wittiness that it keeps you smiling, secondary characters that keep up the fun with their own unique spins, and humor that sparks throughout. This is the first book I have read in the Stupid Awesome Love series and it won’t be my last. Highly recommend this book and this author!

Part of the Stupid Awesome Love series a book that had me smiling . I also like what WWMHLD stands for. Gabriel Chang and Lulu Jimenez's story has her being the knight he needs.There is suspense, drama, danger, a gang of thugs, and romance.

Lulu is a bike courier, she's delivering to a motel when she sees a man being attacked. She becomes his knight in shining armour and he's her damsel in distress. A lovely switch around.
A funny romantic suspense. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This was a fun read about Gabriel and Lulu. If you read the previous book in this series you got to meet him and learn about her rescuing him. It was a a sweet read that I truly enjoyed. I really like this authors writing style and characters. Would recommend as a fun quick romantic read.

A full on, insta love novella featuring the quirky Gabriel and the mighty Lulu. The characters are endearing, funny and head over heels in love right from the minute Lulu stepped in to save Gabriel. Such a treat to read a strong female character like her. I enjoyed the book from the first word to the last.
