The Plot (from Goodreads):

Hazel Camille Bradford knows she’s a lot to take—and frankly, most men aren’t up to the challenge. If her army of pets and thrill for the absurd don’t send them running, her lack of filter means she’ll say exactly the wrong thing in a delicate moment. Their loss. She’s a good soul in search of honest fun.

Josh Im has known Hazel since college, where her zany playfulness proved completely incompatible with his mellow restraint. From the first night they met—when she gracelessly threw up on his shoes—to when she sent him an unintelligible email while in a post-surgical haze, Josh has always thought of Hazel more as a spectacle than a peer. But now, ten years later, after a cheating girlfriend has turned his life upside down, going out with Hazel is a breath of fresh air.

Not that Josh and Hazel date. At least, not each other. Because setting each other up on progressively terrible double blind dates means there’s nothing between them…right?

The Review: 

This might be my new favorite rom-com. I’ve been a Christina Lauren fan for the longest time, but loved this one even more than the previous ones I’ve read!

The characters are just so lovely and relatable…I absolutely loved Hazel. She’s goofy, quirky, and unpredictable, and just seems so endearing. She is absolutely the sort of character that I would want to be best friends with. I loved Josh’s dedication to his family, and I loved Hazel and Josh as a couple.

The whole story was just so adorable. I’m not sure what else to say about it, but would definitely recommend it to all lovers of rom-coms!
