BETTER BOOK: This is definitely so so so much better than Not the girl you marry even though Im a big fan of How to lose a guy in 10 days and curly hair of Matthew McConaughey but retelling didnt work with me. We needed Kate and Matthew on the board!
BETTER CHARACTERS: I loved Bridget, tough, prideful, hard-worker, confidant, successful lawyer, but when it comes to deal ...more
I wanted to get my hands on Not That Kind of Guy the second I heard about it after my experience with Not the Girl You Marry. To say my expectations were high is a huge understatement . . . .
I didnt bother reading the entire synopsis. I thought this was going to be a fake date trope since I was aware the jumping off point of the story was Bridget being an attorney and Matt being a summer clerk who somehow ended up as her date for ...more
"Bridget Nolan had lush auburn hair, piercing gray-blue eyes, cut-glass cheekbones, and a voice that was better than a hand job."
Matt Kido. So, where could I find one like him? He's ...more
Bridget Nolan is one badass attorney. Shes tough as nails - especially with men.
In walks wealthy, hunky Matt Kido. He is also the son of the powerhouse woman heading up the perfect fellowship Bridget is applying for. Matt is Bridgets new law intern for the summer. Can Bridget keep the relationship professional and gain the fellowship all in one swoop?
With her brothers wedding right around the corner- Bridget needs a date and fast. When the internship ends and emotions get out of control- no ...more
🌟The Proposal with a twist
🌟Lawyer - Intern
🌟Banter + Romance
I loved Bridget from the first book and I cannot express how much I loved the fact "Not that kind of Guy" follows Bridget!!!
But this book had the same issues I had with "Not the girl you marry". There was too many telling of emotions while it was obvious. I had to skip pages to get through the book.
Full review will be posted closer to the publishing date.
*I received the ...more
Let's start with a quick list of things I enjoyed:
Fierce and fabulous heroine
Sweet and swoony hero
Fantastic family times
Lots of rom-com moments
This is sort of like that dilemma but with a twist-she's an attorney in need of a date for her brother's wedding-he's a legal intern and she's his boss.
Well, it can still work if the star's align? Right?!
No fret- we got this!!
Enter hot guy Matt who takes the world by storm along with Bridget's heart.
So we are off to fun in the sun -beautiful Nevada- and what happens ...more
I really applaud Andie J. Christopher for her main character Bridget Nolan being older then her Love Interest Matt Kido. I havent read a lot of romance novels where the woman is just a few years older then the man. Which makes it unique in ...more
This one was modelled after the proposal, following Bridget, Jakes sister. Bridget is an attorney who doesnt have time for relationships. However, this stance is tested when she gets a new intern, Matt. The two find it hard to ignore their chemistry, ...more
Just FYI for expectation-setting, since I *did* see a lot of HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS in NOT THE GIRL YOU MARRY: I keep hearing that this is modeled off THE PROPOSAL, but I just don't see it. THE PROPOSAL is a forced fake relationship (which sounds bad but I love this movie shhh), but here the main conceit is an office attraction that they hold off on until their professional relationship is ...more
With that out of the way, I will note that once again I find myself torn by a book. I really loved the characters and the story. I came pretty close to giving this 5 stars. I'm not a huge reader of contemporary romance, but I have been dabbling in them a lot more lately. I haven't encountered a story quite like this one before and I found it refreshing. For example, the main characters mostly ...more
I'm going to be honest and let everyone know that I didn't have high hopes for this book after reading Andie's first novel, Not the Girl You Marry. I listened to the audiobook of that one and enjoyed it fairly enough despite the poor reviews on the writing and the characters. Maybe it was because I had someone reading enthusiastically to me instead of me reading it in the same monotone inner voice I have?
This one was a ...more
Are you confused? Yes? Me too. I think...this may have been a character thing for me?
I know this makes me a hypocrite because I don't have this issue with spoiled 19th century British lord heroes... but I just REALLY struggled with a 2020 'Trust Fund Kid' hero. I can't help it. It is what it is.
The particular "class" and money ...more
I really enjoyed this book and I didnt want to put it down after I started reading ...more
I don't know if it was my mood or what but this one didnt catch me like Hannah's book. I just felt like it was okay and I don't know why. all the tropey goodness was there! oops we got married in Vegas and now we gotta keep pretending we are actually married. BUT I just ofund myself skimming scenes to see how it all would end.
This is an interracial romance which i feel like i haven't really seen ...more
With that said, I liked this book, for the most part. The characters were wonderfully crafted. I like how Andie created the back story for each of the main characters.
I didnt prefer how the chapters change perspectives without ...more
After being disappointed by Not the Girl You Marry (I'm not a fan of How to Lose a Guy in 10 days), I was not looking forward to reading Not That Kind of Guy by the same author (Andie J Christopher). However, my stack of non-YA novels, was incredibly thin. So why not, especially since it is the drunk marriage in Vegas trope. This book was much more to my liking.
