It opens when Leah is 10 years old, it's her birthday and she's waiting not so patiently for her mum to get home from work so they can go to Sea World. This birthday is going to be the best she just knows it, parties haven't worked out that well for her in the past so this is a fresh start birthday wise. While she's waiting for her mother we get the highlights or should that be lowlights on some of her birthday disasters. The problem is Leah's mother chooses this day of all days to pack up and leave without a word to anyone leaving poor Leah on her birthday looking out of the window and dreaming of Sea World.
As the years go by not only Leah but all her family and friends grow to believe in her birthday curse and as a result she sequesters herself away on that day to suffer in silence.
I enjoyed this book so much it had me laughing to the point of tears on several occasions especially Leah's first meeting with Myles, her first Brazilian and .... oh the list just goes on and on.
From the blurb you'll have gathered that Leah is effervescent and completely nuts so when grumpy yet gorgeous Myles moves in next door sparks are bound to fly. The more time these two spend together the more attracted they become to each other but Leah knows she has to keep Myles at arms length at least until after her birthday but Myles is equally determined to prove to Leah that she's not cursed.
This book is hilarious and I'm seriously going have to check out other books from this author, it's taken me days to read this partly due to real life getting in the way but mainly because I generally do most of my reading in bed and I couldn't with this because I was laughing too much it was driving my husband crazy.
Because I've been so long reading this I'd forgotten it included an additional book so I was surprised when the epilogue appeared about half way in but that's my fault.
I will add that I very rarely give 5* but this book came very very close.

Leah is quirky, superstitious and feisty. This puts her at immediate odds with her new neighbor. Myles comes across as grouchy at the start but as he and Leah interact you begin to see the big heart underneath that crusty exterior. He’s caring, swoon-worthy and definitely sexy. These two clash right from the start and the witty banter that happens is top notch. Some of the best I’ve read. And while it’s a slow burn romance, there’s sexual tension throughout the book that you can practically feel seeping from the book. There are some eccentric secondary characters that make their appearances as well. A couple of whom I hope get their own stories.
As I mentioned, it’s not all fun and games—Gail tackles a couple of tough topics in these pages as well. These are handled gently and with class. The care that each of the main characters takes with the other’s issues gave me the warm fuzzies. And while they weren’t overly complex, there was some great development with them. This is a pretty low drama book with little angst. It’s definitely going on my re-read list for when I just need something to make me smile.
I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a sweet, sexy read that’s low on the drama, high on the humor and heart.
I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
Leah Whitfield is definitely an insane chick who I'm pretty sure doesn't know boundaries of society. In real life, I would probably drown her in Myles Bellamy's pool but thankfully this is book world so reading about her shenanigans is quite hilarious. Although I would probably do it just so I would have Myles Bellamy all to myself. Hot, moody, Neanderthal next door... YES PLEASE!
From the moment that two find themselves in the same pool (Leah trespassing to take a dip and Myles taking a skinny dip in his pool... in his NEW house) they develop an irresistible push and pull of attraction. As always things are not as easy as they should be. Someone is always watching their heart and delaying the inventible joining of two people who are CLEARLY (to us readers only of course) meant to be together. The perfect yin/yang situation, which is exactly how you can describe Leah and Myles. Where Myles is super serious and practical, Leah is a hilarious mess (in a good way).
Why a mess? I know it sounds like a bad thing but the reason why I say that is tied completely to the title of the book. I won't mention what it is but the story does go into more serious and in a way truly sad territory, which adds more characters and complexity to the story. So on top of it being well written with loads of burst out loud hilarious moment this book just gives enough to turn this Pinocchio-type of story into a Real life situation.
So take a chance on this book and on this author... if you have not done so you won't be sorry. Swear!
And that is exactly what I got. I loved every word of this story. It was different from what I was expecting since I had this idea that Leah was going to be a new age, flake that would make me laugh but who I wouldn’t be able to relate to in any way. And Myles sounded kinda like he had a stick in his you know where so I expected there to be a lot of comedy when these two collided.
Myles had the perfect mix of growly, possessive alpha and sweet, sensitive caring guy to absolute perfection. I loved his brand of sarcasm and watching him fall for Leah and come to terms with her and her crazy friends. While Leah was just crazy, she was also so beautiful I couldn’t help but love her. There was so much sweet and funny in this story and I loved every second.
I did get quite a few giggles from both of these characters and I couldn’t put the book down. But what I didn’t expect was how much I genuinely liked them both and couldn’t wait to see how things were going to play out for them. The secondary characters were great and I really enjoyed the writing.
Now I am off to stalk Allie Gail and see if she has any more books for me to run off and one click.
The chemistry between Myles and Leah was off the charts hysterical! Leah is a quirky girl who thinks she is jinxed every year because bad things happen to her on her birthday. Yes...she is a little nuts, but you instantly fall in love with her and her kooky personality. Myles...well, he is a self confident male who moves in next door to Leah, and swears she's certifiably crazy.
Everything that happens to Leah is just too funny and there really isn't a dull moment in this book! I was in love with the internal dialogue and quick witted responses between the two. The sex is off the charts hot too!
I have to say, Ms. Gail...I had NO idea what a Salad Fingers stuffed doll was, and I was so curious I had to close the book and start searching on Google! OMG! So funny!! I have to admit...I've never seen the show, but now I really want one because it's so ugly it's adorable! Thanks for the laugh!
This is a HEA, no cliffhanger. I WILL be reading more of Allie Gail's books.
