Strike One-My mother named me Theodore after her favorite chipmunk.
Not cool, Mom.
I‘ve spent most of my life answering to Teddy, because I couldn’t make Theo work.
Except for here. College. The place where all bets are off, and I’ve managed to redeem myself.
There’s only one problem, my new roommate, Troy, is football royalty and looks like he stepped off the set of an Abercrombie shoot.
Doesn’t matter, I cook a mean breakfast for his panty parade, and we get along well.And anyway, this year I got the girl. And she’s perfect.
That’s right. Theodore Houseman, former band geek, now marching band rock star has finally landed the girl of his dreams.
Everything is perfect.
That is, until Troy takes a good look at her.
I’m not going down without a fight. As a matter of fact, I’m not going down at all. As glorious as these days may be for my all-star roommate, Laney is my end game.
I may not know much about play strategy, but I’ve been the good guy my whole life. I’ve been listening and I know exactly what women want. Framed in a picture standing next to me, Troy may seem like Mr. Perfect, but he’s underestimating the guy on the right.
Spoiler alert: In this story, the underdog is going to win.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
AHHHH!! Kate Stewart delivered the perfect summer read with The Guy on the Right. From page one, I was grinning like a fool. Even when things got a bit dicey, because lets be honest, it's YA- it was bound to happen, I was still wildly entertained.
I loved the dynamic between Theo and Laney. How they met. How awkward they both were. How nerdy. But most importantly, how they were always just themselves with each other. Although they were opposites in almost every way, their bond was instant and strong.
It was an achingly sweet slow burn. Even when these best friends started to develop feeling for the other, they didn't want to risk what they already had. But when they finally, and I mean finally gave into what their hearts- and bodies- had been denying it was electric. And so worth the wait.
But old habits and fears die hard and when Theo's stare him right in the face, he's left hurt and heartbroken. In the heat of the moment, he did the only thing he could, try to protect his already battered heart. And when he realized the error of his ways, let's just say he made up for it in the most epic of ways.
Crazy Laney and Bugle Boy came out of nowhere and delivered a one-two punch of humor and heart. Full Doritos and family and music and odd jobs, The Guy on the Right was an absolute joy to read. I am so looking forward to seeing this crew of characters again soon!
