My love life has been epic.
But that’s all in the past. I put my unrequited crush on Zach, my best friend’s grumpy brother, behind me years ago. My ex-fiancé, the jerk who left me at the altar, is also in my emotional rearview. Now, I’m focusing on my career. I don’t have time for romance.
Then my ex shows up and everything changes.
Zach comes to my defense in a big way, pretending to be my boyfriend. Then he suggests we keep up our mutually beneficial fake relationship for a few more months.
And it’s not long before I realize my crush on Zach might not be as over as I’d hoped.
It might not be as unrequited as I’d thought, either.
But as much as I’d love to trust him, to give him a second chance, I’m not sure I can. I gave him my heart once and he broke it.
This time, I’m afraid trust might be a luxury I can’t afford.
Broody Nerd, part of Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward's Cocky Hero world, is a light-hearted, contemporary romance standalone featuring plenty of mutual pining, a strong, curvy heroine, and a slightly nerdy, growly hero. Happily ever after guaranteed…along with a slow-burn romance.
3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
Autumn Grey writing in the Cocky Hero Club? Yes please and thank you!
I loved the way Zach stepped up and in to help Chloe when her jerk of an ex gets thrust back into her life. It didn't help that he was her teenage crush and best friend's brother. But desperate times and all that. What she wasn't expecting was for her fakelationship to turn into real feelings for them both.
There was no denying the chemistry between these two. And I loved the flirty, witty banter. Just how easy it was for them to slip into this new phase of knowing each other. And Zach's protective side where the sleazy ex was concerned was just the cherry on top (I mean it, her ex is the worst). Now, all they had to do was get Kate (Zach's sister) on board with their happy news....
From start to finish Broody Nerd was easy and fun to read. Chloe and Zach's friends to lovers, with just a touch of the forbidden was low-ish on drama and high on heart. Fingers crossed we get Kate's story sometime in the future.
