Renee Lockhart is lovable and funny. She doesn’t have a nasty bone in her body…so competing with two dozen other women for the city’s most eligible bachelor is completely out of her comfort zone. But she needs to raise her visibility if she’s going to nail a spot on her station’s coveted morning show. Anyway, it’s not like she has much of a social life. Who knows? It might even be fun.
As you can probably predict, Renee’s efforts at manipulation and gamesmanship go horribly wrong. Awkward, uncomfortable, she takes “bumbling” to a whole new level–setting herself on fire, fainting at inopportune moments. Worse, she develops feelings for Ben McConnell. Tired of being labeled a womanizer, he’s trying to improve his own public image by coming off as romantic and serious about finding someone to build a relationship with. He finds Renee’s antics amusing and endearing and keeps her on the show when anyone else would have voted her off.
Ben is appealing, but he’s also quite jaded. It’s nice to see him soften over the course of the novel. I do think he overreacts when he discovers Renee’s “ulterior” motives for being on the show. Especially considering that he has his own. I would’ve dialed down the angst in the last two chapters, but that’s probably because they made me cry.
ACCEPT THIS DANDELION made me laugh, sob, and cringe in embarrassment. It’s a great “fish out of water” romance and my favorite Brooke Williams book to date.
What made Renee so endearing to the reader was because she was just your every day girl that did clumsy things, such as accidentally setting herself on fire on the first show (not something someone usually does) but the fact she wasn't perfect. She was just her humble self that did in fact get the guy of her dreams in the end, even with a few faux pas' along the way.
I did find several typing and grammar errors, where words needed to be added or changed but it didn't detract from the story.
Accept This Dandelion was most certainly a Rom-com that would make a funny movie! I enjoyed it and look forward to seeing what else Brooke Williams writes!
Their chemistry draws them to each other and they enjoy their time together. Another constestant tries to use a story about Renee to wreck her chances of winning. Will Ben listen and decide his future doesn't belong with Renee.
Quite a fun read.
Many thanks to the publisher and Net Galley for the chance to read this one.
Ms Williams writes engaging and flowing stories with believable and endearing characters and this one is no exception.
