At least according to every news outlet and online hater imaginable.
Not only did I love this book, I FLOVED it! How does Cambria do it? I love her standalone Take It Off series and then I practically INHALED her Hashtag and Gearshark series. This author has a gift. She can sweep you into a world, a lovely, all the feels kind of world with her magical ability over those 26 letters of the alphabet. I can't wait for the next book!
Anyway, let me get to the story and my actual review.
Nate. Lovely, very funny, goofy Nate. He's unlike any of Cambria's previous characters. I felt he was a little more unsure, his head was funnier and he has a very dry sense of humour. He also kind of lets his thoughts run wild.
"There was an attraction between us. Don't tell anyone, but it shocked the hell outta me."
I really liked the way Nate was with Aerie. He's a no bullshit kind of man, very up front with his feelings and geeky with it. He doesn't even have to say the best lines because whatever he says is pretty adorable.
"Just in case you're wondering, Fruity Pebbles is my favourite thing ever, and you just beat them out."
Having never had Fruity Pebbles in my life ( WHY!?) I feel like the UK version is Fruit Loops. Not the same I don't think but when I'm next in America, I'm trying those bad boys. But I'm going to say that if you really love a food (like I love all food!) and you admit someone beats that food, then you love that someone quite a lot really! And it's so sweet.
Aerie was a really likeable character, just the right amount of sass and vulnerability.
"He didn't understand. I didn't expect him to. I was a toad, but he saw a princess. I wasn't sure if I should love him or hate him for it. I think I probably want to love him."
I really liked this book and I hope that there's some sort of follow on with the characters!

Toad by Cambria Hebert is definitely a book about opposites attract, and redemption!
If you've read Butterfly (another Public Enemy stand alone by Cambria Hebert) you've met Nate before, as Ten's cousin, and the one who helped him write some songs for his hit album. Now Nate is back and has his own book, and it is amazing! Nate has the opportunity of a lifetime to write a song for Aerie Boone who has had it rough the past few months. She's been in the spotlight and not for her music. She trusted the wrong man, and he's taken her reputation down, and now Aerie is drowning and trying to redeem herself. Her tough exterior is just a facade and not who she really is, she's been beaten down and just trying to survive most days and find herself again.
Nate is trying to make a name for himself and to start his career, while Aerie is trying to get out of a marriage she doesn't even remember getting into, and saving her career. She doesn't want anything to do with Nate at first, but to save her career she knows she has to work with him, and the more she's around him, the more she begins to find herself again. I adored watching her start to loosen up and not be so uptight when she was with Nate, and I loved Nate's carefree banter with her, and how he didn't treat her like she was the superstar that she is. Nate knows she has something she's hiding but doesn't push to get it out of her, he knows she'll come to him when she's ready.
Watching Aerie struggle with everything Will has put her through and continues to put her through was hard to read. No one deserves what she has gone through and my heart broke for her, but throughout this book she starts to find her strength and she realizes that not every person is out to get her. Watching her start to fall for Nate when she least expected it was beautiful, especially since these two are complete and utter opposites on paper, but they just seem to work together.
Seeing how protective Nate was of Aerie and how he'd do anything for her, even after just meeting her, made me swoon and I fell hard for his goofy boy next door character. This story was unique, and beautifully written. I loved how Cambria Hebert developed these characters and how they both got their HEA together and individually. We got to see them both chase their individual dreams as well as figure out where they belong in each others lives and deal with the struggles that brought them together to begin with.
If you're looking for a new adult romance that has a bit of angst, suspense, and a lot of laughs, then Toad by Cambria Hebert is definitely the book for you. I truly adored Aerie and Nate's story!
^ I literally woke my husband up laughing whilst reading this line. The humour and banter coursing through the pages was exciting and hella funny. So many one liners had me laughing out loud.
Nate isn’t your usual main character, he wasn’t perfect, all American jock with the “Adonis” looks, he was real. He had red hair, was addicted to his favourite brand of cereal and had next to no control over his mouth filter but he was probably one of the best MC’s I have read in a while (excluding all Ms Hebert’s Books).
I loved how we seen Aerie grow, when we first met her she was rude, aloof and very self centred but once you get further into the story and see all those layers pulled back, it was heart breaking to hear all that she went through.
Aerie and Nate are one for the record Books, I truly recommend for all to read this masterpiece.
If you have read Butterfly you will remember Nate...the sassy and loveable cousin of Ten, the most hated and most loved pop star. Nate is a budding songwriter and helped his cousin make a comeback. Now its his turn for the spotlight...and for him to help the wayward country star Aerie Bone.
The personalities that Hebert writes are fantastic and real. You will laugh and cringe (in a good way.....you'll see what I mean) and fall in love. With Nate, with Aerie, and with Cheeto.
Toad is a standalone so you don't need to have read Butterfly but I feel like it deepens the story in Toad. You will see bits of Ten and Violet and have that extra little oomph that Cambria Hebert's puts into her stories.
