Blog Tour - Check Me Out


About the book: Greta loves her job as assistant librarian. She loves her best friend, Will, the high school civics teacher and debate coach. She even loves her mother despite her obvious disappointment that Greta is still single.

Then she meets Mac in the poetry section of the library, and she is smitten. Mac is heart-stoppingly gorgeous and showers her with affection, poetic text messages, and free hot chocolate at the local cafe where he works. The only problem is that he seems to be a different person in his texts that in his face-to-face conversation.

When the Franklin Library is threatened with closure, Greta leaps into action. She arranges for a "battle of the bands" book jam, hosts a book signing by a famous author, and finally, stages a protest that raises more than a few eyebrows.

Through it all, she slowly realizes that it is Will, not Mac, who she turns to for support and encouragement. Mac has the looks; Will has the heart. How can she choose between them?

Check Me Out is a contemporary romance—with just a hint of Cyrano de Bergerac—that reminds us to never judge a book by its cover.

My review: This book was so much fun! I loved the plot, I loved Greta and I really loved all of the twists and turns she had to take on the way to her happily ever after.

Greta's character was so great! You see the whole story through her eyes, and that works for this book. I still wish I knew what Will or Mac were thinking through some of it, but...it wouldn't have worked as well. Greta is so passionate about books and the library in general. I loved the way she would go through the old papers and all of the people in them become so real to her. I was so happy that she was able to figure out what happened to some of those people. I also loved that she was able to work hard to save the library and learn a really big lesson throughout the whole thing.

Will is Greta's best friend. I loved the way he was so in tune with her that he pretty much always knew what she needed. I kind of felt bad for the way Greta and sometimes others would talk about him, he seemed like a really great guy! He always goes out of his way to do things for her and get her the best birthday gifts.

Enter Mac. I had to laugh at the way Mac was presented as Greta's 24th birthday present. But there were many things about him that just seemed off. I kept wondering just how Greta couldn't see the things that weren't quite right, but she never seemed to. 

I can't tell you much more without giving something away. There were so many things that I loved about this book! Can't wait for more from this author!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
