Check Me Out by Becca Wihite, Book Review
Greta loves her job as assistant librarian. She loves her best friend, Will, the high school civics teacher and debate coach. She even loves her mother despite her obvious disappointment that Greta is still single.
Then she meets Mac in the poetry section of the library, and she is smitten. Mac is heart-stoppingly gorgeous and showers her with affection, poetic text messages, and free hot chocolate at the local café where he works. The only problem is that he seems to be a different person in his texts than in his face-to-face conversation.
When the Franklin Library is threatened with closure, Greta leaps into action. She arranges for a "battle of the bands" book jam, hosts a book signing by a famous author, and finally, stages a protest that raises more than a few eyebrows.
Through it all, she slowly realizes that it is Will, not Mac, who she turns to for support and encouragement. Mac has the looks; Will has the heart. How can she choose between them?
Check Me Out is a contemporary romance--with just a hint of Cyrano de Bergerac--that reminds us that it is what's on the inside that matters most.
I love, love, love LOVED this book! Did I mention that I loved it? First of all, Greta is just great, she loves books, works in the library and which one of us book nerds doesn't relate to that or desperately wants to work in a library ourselves? So Greta? She is AWESOME!!! And let's talk about her amazing and super hot best friend Will! Holy heck, Will is awesomeness and probably the best friend anyone could ever ask for! He was always there for Greta, always helping, always there! He was her rock and her constant! And he sent her a perfect guy for her birthday? Seriously, this cannot be real folks! Who does that? Anyhow, the story definitely has more depth than just the best friend/boyfriend/Greta trio. There is all of the library possibly shutting down issues and what Greta can do to try to save it! You do not want to miss out on this story, you NEED to read it! I loved every second and I am sure you will too!
You can pick up your own copy via Amazon.
