Fell a bit flat for me unfortunately

Manic Pixie Dream Boy (The Underdogs, #1)Manic Pixie Dream Boy by K.A. Merikan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


So this had one of the most brilliantly mixed opening chapters of any book I’ve read as it throws the reader into the humorous and sexy initial meeting of the two MCs.

It also manages to bring the Merikans’ own unique blend of crazy to the fake boyfriend and rock star romance tropes with a bit quite insta love connection between the somewhat over confident Dusk and the truly individual drifter he nicknames Lolly.

But, I don’t know exactly what it was but I didn’t fall totally in love with this couple or with this book like I usually do with this author duo. I think perhaps the angst was a bit ‘teen’ dramady and the characters all felt young – although I don’t remember it ever been said how old either Dusk or Lolly were.

There was still a lot to like though, this is the first in a new series about the band members as I understand it and I looking forward to finding out more.

I did like the resolution of the conflict though, there was an understanding and an acceptance that mistakes had been made and more honest conversation was needed but I did believe both Dusk and Abe (Lolly’s real name) did love each other completely.

And, as is always the case with books from these two, the cover is gorgeous and the sex is scorching.
