Tia Monroe was smart, sassy and successful. Sure, she could get a little crazy at times—life around Tia was never boring—but that was part of her appeal. And while she didn’t see herself as ‘classically beautiful’, she had no shortage of options in the boyfriend department. She just hadn’t found one who held her interest.
Until she laid eyes on Eric Larsson, and then it was lust at first sight.
He packed the perfect mix of smoldering sexy and unapologetic cool into his blond-haired, blue-eyed, ridiculously hot six-foot-four frame. One smile from him was enough to twist her insides, making her girlie bits tingle in the most delicious way. But it wasn’t just his looks, he was smart and funny—charming in the most a-dork-able way.
The only problem was . . . Tia had never actually met him.
Eric Larsson was one of Hollywood’s hottest movie stars, rising to the top of his game and leaving a trail of disintegrated panties in his wake. Tia’s were no exception—but she wasn’t delusional. Love, marriage and happily-ever-after were not part of her fantasy; she just wanted to meet him. Just one time. One time. Confident that just seeing him in the flesh would get him out of her system.
So, with her resolve steeled, Tia set off on a quest to make it happen while avoiding her mug shot being splayed across the five o’clock news.
The journey no doubt will make for one hell of a story.
Would laugh out loud emojis count as a good book review? Never have I imagined that I would not just chuckle, but guffaw as in belly laugh while reading #1 Crush. It had the kind of feel good effect, similar to when you’re binge watching your favorite chick flick, back when romantic comedies were golden. All the characters leap off of the pages, not just the major ones but the seconds as well. Tia’s sister, brother in law, best friend? Eric’s best friend and brothers? They were all hilarious! And the heroine? Tia! Woman! I secretly and ridiculously hoped that you were a legit human being because I wanted to be your friend and tag along with your craziness. All confident, witty, down to earth, no holds barred, knows herself too much without being obnoxious.
If you love romantic comedy and if you are a fangirl you should try #1 Crush. The heat started too early, kinda insta, but that didn’t bother me anymore because the story became more and more entertaining as I went along. You will also find the hero, Eric, a little less like the usual alpha male and he can be agreeable all the freakin’ time, but I swear in the end you will find out why he acts that way and you will adore him even more after realizing how crazy in love he was with Tia. I think–no–I know, that I have a new author to stalk and that is T. Gephart. She is an effortless writer with comedic timing that is addictive and on point. Tia’s inner monologues can be repetitive sometimes, but it felt more genuine to me, not at all annoying, but more in touch with her characterization. This story is every fangirl’s fantasy. Sweet, hilariously sexy, with fun, light-hearted twists! I hope T. Gephart will continue to write about all the characters in this book, especially Ryan and the Larsson brothers. I was overdosed with happy pills in my own happy zone after reading this! Aaaahhh fun times!!!!
