Quick & Dirty: Adorable new adult romance filled with great humor, steamy romance, and fun characters. This was a great read and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun romance.

Opening Sentence: “I can’t believe I let you guys talk me into this,” Devi says.

The Review:

Ryan Rose knows how to win and this spring break she is going to win something big. With her two best friends she is competing in a high-profile entrepreneurial competition where the prize is $100,000 and a chance to work for a fortune 500 company. This is the opportunity of a lifetime and there is no way the girls are going to lose. They have to beat the other team, which is made up of three frat boys from a rival university. But Team Ryan does have one slight advantage: people tend to underestimate three beautiful college girls.

Jett Trebuchet’s has never had a problem with getting what he wants. He is smart, driven, rich, and talented, so things tend to come easy for him. That doesn’t mean that he hasn’t worked for what he has, but when it comes to winning he really doesn’t know how to lose. So when he finds out that the competition is a group of girls he is pretty sure that his team will win. What he doesn’t expect is the instant attraction he feels towards the other team’s leader, or the fact that the girls will do anything to win!

It is kind of pathetic how much I adore Ryan. She is someone that I am nothing like, but wish I was more like. Her confidence shines whenever she is under pressure and she is never one to back down from a challenge. Losing is never an option and she will do whatever she has to to win. I loved her sassy attitude and how she always seems to have a comeback for everything. But she also has insecurities like any normal girl would, she is just better at hiding them from others. I instantly liked Ryan and as her story unfolds I developed a deep connection with her character. She is someone I wish I was friends with in real life!

Jett is a gorgeous frat boy who turned out to be way different then I originally thought. When you first meet him he seems like your average rich college boy with a major competitive streak, but as you get to know him you see that he is so much more than that. He is actually a really sweet guy that has worked extremely hard for everything he has. He is very respectful, giving, and just an all around great guy. It was really fun to watch the relationship between him and Ryan develop. They are both ridiculously competitive, but obviously crazy attracted to each other. I thought that they had amazing chemistry and in all honesty they are perfect for each other. Jett is a boy you easily fall for and he was a great addition to the story.

Pretty Smart Girls is an adorable contemporary romance with lots of humor, sexy times, and likeable characters. When I read the synopsis for this book I was already cracking up so I figured it was going to be a funny book and I was not disappointed. I found myself laughing out loud plenty of times throughout the story, but I did feel that there was more humor in the first half of the book versus the second half. That’s not to say that there wasn’t any funny parts in the second half because there was, I would have just liked to see a little bit more. The romance was really cute but it did develop very quickly. Personally, this didn’t bother me at all and in many ways real relationships develop quickly as well, but I imagine some people won’t love this aspect of the book. I adored all the characters and I hope that we get to see more of them in future books. I also loved how Ross ingrained emotional moments throughout the story. Not everything was all fun and games, which gave the story a lot more depth than just a fluffy romance. Overall, I really enjoyed this story and would highly recommend it to anyone that it looking for a fun new adult contemporary read.

Notable Scene:

Her index finger presses to her lips, and with a wideeyed expression she hisses out a slow shhh. “I was having a perfectly relaxing morning until you showed up.” She turns her back to me but her mouth is still moving. “it’s bad enough we have to spend the day together. I know you Wolverines like to hear yourselves talk.”

In the time it’s taken her to finish her sentence, I have stepped up behind her and am hovering over her shoulder, as close as I can get without spilling coffee on her.

“Did you just shush me?”
