It's good but there's something missing. I feel like some things were left unresolved and I didn't get to know the H. Like I said there was something missing.

The writer Kayt Miller is totally new to me. I discovered this book by chance (Bookbub deal) and after reading the blurb I became very curious about the story. A British rugby player who accidently calls the wrong number?!? It sounded like a fun story and it was.

Quinn Maxwell is a curvy young woman who is studying to became an art teacher. She lives together with roommates in a house. She’s living a quiet life until one night she hears a man voice, a sexy British man voice. When she is

First few chapters were really funny and entertaining so I got my hopes up. Sadly, after that it all went downwards. Pretty cute and easy to read tho.

DNF @ 53%

I just...... this book is so bland, so utterly charmless I couldn't put myself through it. The main character and narrator has a lot of body issues, which honestly is fine (and expected? I don't know), but instead of something relatable, relevant or even just well written, what we got is someone who really needs therapy and better friends and doesn't communicate with us all that well. Her intern monologue is boring, and instead of connecting with her I simply couldn't care less.

Ok, firstly, I will say while this book has romance involved, it delves more in Quinn's life and how she learns to accepting herself. I enjoyed Quinn's quirky, sometimes unapologetic personality - and her self-esteem issues weren't over played. It didn't become tedious which was refreshing.

I also really enjoyed the banter between Quinn and Cooke - but the long distance, mixed in with just one chapter (ONLY one Chapter) from Cooke's side really frustrated me.

There was an obvious spark between th

It was a quick easy read but I felt that I wanted more depth from both characters. Also, I small thing but the over use of the word ‘love’ drove me mad - I’m English and I don’t know anyone who uses it every sentence like Cooke did and as he seemed to be from London I’m not sure why he said ‘aye’ all the time because where I’m from that’s a northern saying. I don’t mean to be picky but it really grates on me when I see things like this in a book I’m reading.

Anyway, my pickiness aside, the book

This was a sweet, swoonworthy read, filled with some brilliant banter.

Kind, caring and sweet, those are just a few of the the words that spring to mind when it comes to Quinn, she’s also your typical woman with the way that she struggles with her vulnerabilities especially when it comes to her own body insecurities. In steps Cooke, he may be a jock but he doesn’t fit the category of your average jock, he’s extremely sweet with a heart of gold, and sexy with it.

This was a light, fun read. I loved the premise of a modern "wrong number" turned love affair. Wish we had seen more of Cooke's side of the story. Love that he goes all in for the girl.

I want to start off by saying that this book as absolutely a joy to read! It was witty, sweet, and I freaking loved the premise! The characters and their development was done just right by the author and I enjoyed reading this slow burn romance with a really neat premise! Seriously I loved the way everything played out-- I am a fan and will definitely be checking out Kayt Miller in the future!

All in all, if you want a solid book that develops a friendship of sorts between the main characters bef

So bad. Story-wise, character-wise, everything-wise.
The premise is not merely far-fetched (celebrity athlete mistakenly Face Time unknown college student and falls in love with her) but also poorly executed.
The heroine has one of the worst cases of misplaced insecurities I’ve read in ages (beautiful and overweight she’s instantly desired by every male she encounters and yet she thinks she’s unwanted and not desirable enough).
Friendships and relationships are formed and broken in the book with

Best Rom-Com Ever!

Hands down one of the best rom-com story I have ever read! This is Hollywood is a good material for movie or Hallmark Romance Series. Cooke and Quinn are a love team to beat. Made me giggle and laugh like crazy by myself, what a splendid thing to read at the very sad pandemic situation. Love it, love it, love it!

Good premise but poor execution. There is no buildup between the characters.The authors words make Quinn seem too young for Cooke.

I stayed up late reading Bedhead because I couldn't put it down. I loved it. Everything about it. This book had it all for me. It felt like reading the goings on of a college girl in real life. It just flowed easily.

Quinn - it was nice to read about a curvy girl and while a little insecure about her body image... she didn't let how she looks stop her from living life, for standing up for herself, for getting the guy she loves. It was a really nice change in a female character. Quinn knew her wo

Love me some Cooke 🥰

I love watching a good rom-com movie, but I'm really starting to love even more reading them. It's too bad that Quinn was so self-deprecating. She's everything I would normally enjoy about a female lead, but she really has a problem with something almost like sabotaging herself of happiness. Lots of things go wrong for this girl, so she's had to overcome a lot, but I kept thinking come on and get it together. I wanted her to find that inner strength and confidence to just tak
M Reads Romance
Quinn is a curvy woman who has frequent reminders from others of her size driving overwhelming self doubt and insecurity. She is constantly drawn to unrequited love as she doesn't believe those that tell her she is beautiful. By chance she meet the very hot British rugby player, Cooke who sweeps her off her feet. But the real story is how Quinn finds her voice to stand up for herself. Does she stay invisible or choose to live large!

This is very much Quinn's story, it's even told mainly from her

Bedhead is the first book I have read from this author and it was cute. I definitely want to read more about Quinn and her friends.

Quinn is woken up during the night to a wrong FaceChat call not meant for her. On the video call screen is someone Quinn would never expect to talk to her but he does call her back...more than once. He's in England and she's in Iowa so there's no pressure to be 'on' with this guy. It turns out her late-night caller is a professional rugby star and one who is downrigh

Kayt Miller is a new to me author, and Bedhead was a read that I really enjoyed. It's the story of Quinn Maxwell, a girl who was quirky & lovable, especially her no filter, which I loved. She gets a facetime call in the middle of the night by some very sexy dudes who were looking for Maxwell Quinn, but obviously, they mixed it up. They all finally realize that it's the wrong person they rang, and so Quinn goes on with her life, though she really thought one of the dudes, Cooke, was hot, but figu ...more

(4 stars)

It all starts with a wrong number, a face time call in the middle of the night, a hot guy on the screen and Quinn looking like she had just been woken up at three in the morning... which she had. When Cooke calls the very next day to apologize, Quinn realizes that nope, she wasn't dreaming, Cooke is super hot; which in Quinn's world means he would not be interested in her. Striking up a friendship over the phone with Cooke gives Quinn a person that she can talk to, so

I had a couple of issues with this story:

First, I think the book could have used some Cooke's POV. Without it, the romance comes a little unbelievable. (Why does a very successful and famous player fall for someone like the heroine? She may be beautiful, but she's far, far away, and too prone to pity-parties. He doesn't tell us until the very end)

And second and more important, is he really good boyfriend material? He comes too possesive for my peace of mind. And if my boyfriend had ever gone sev
This was pretty cute and a nice read for a cold Sunday afternoon. I do appreciate when I read a plus size heroine written by a plus size author. Her experience rings far more authentic than when written by a skinny author. Like the similarly setup Melt for You, this one features a rugby player hero and a heroine with low self esteem for a variety of reasons, but mostly because of how she’s treated because of her weight. It’s easy to tell which one was written by a plus size author and which one ...more

I debated on the rating, but in the end I decided I liked the story too much not to give it a 4 stars. Here's my thing though, it's kind of marketed as a romance and it does contain a romance but it really isn't one.

This book is definitely more chick lit than romance. Honestly at one point I didn't have a clue who she was going to end up with. Cooke had a couple chapters of his point of view but not enough to make it obvious he was the love interest. Luke, Jack and definitely Gage had en

This is a first time read from this author. I was really intrigued by the concept of how the 2 main characters meet. And it played out really well.
Cooke is a dream, I’m from the U.K. and the author does a really great job with all the lingo etc. And Cooke is such a great character. Quinn, is quirky and it’s great that the author wrote her as plus size. But she’s so sensitive and self deprecating that at times she kinda frustrated me. She puts herself down constantly and yet every other man she

its exactly what you'd expect for better or worse. writing is a bit below average due to choice to make it seem like it's a diary?? but then the girl is explaining basic shit to us like we toddlers. and she's corny and not funny and in no way representative of a college student. unless she had been homeschooled for the past 12 years.

characters around her were also weird af by acting either way older than their age or mean/immature as hell. her best friend was garbage and 6 diff dudes fell i

A bit amateur

Was a bit silly.
The main character was not very likeable the writer was trying to portray her as a wholesome person but she seam a immature insecure shallow airhead.
The story was far fetched and the rugby referencs wereike they just googled them.
A flyhalf would not be 6foot 5
And generally a rugby player wouldn't be that rich at the age of 26 unless with major sponsorship that was never mentioned.

Hilarious and delightful!

Wow Quinn has so many crappy days .. I felt so bad for her .. I mean wow .. but she made me laugh so much .. I loved this light and funny read.. I think her issues with her weight weren’t something most people saw when they looked at her... it definitely goes to show you how we let a few negative comments control our thoughts and feeling about ourself..
Cooke wasn’t having it .. he really made effort and she still didn’t believe it .. not for a long while.. I am so gla

Bedhead was a really good book. Since this was my first time reading a Kayt Miller book I really didn't know exactly what to expect but I honestly can't wait to read another book by this author. Cooke, a sexy English rugby player, and Quinn, a quirky college student, meet by complete accident but their unusual relationship grew from there and I loved being along for the ride.
