Catching Liam by Sophia Bleu
Publication date:  Summer 2013
Genre: New Adult Contemporary

I must admit the beginning of the book got me into it fast! I liked the idea of a few really close girlfriends acting like a trio of alpha males on the loose. Jillian has a mental block when it comes to relationships. The girls have this fishing thing going and they are happy to catch and let them swim away. I think when it runs it’s course and her friends seem to be dropping into the relationship lifestyle, she seems more determined to keep her rule in place.

So of course a little plan goes awry and Liam is introduced. The way is very cliche and I had to look past that. I am not spoiling anything but who is picked as a partner on the project? Please it was a neon sign.

What I didn’t like was the extreme negative attitude she had towards him. He does state he is from a family of all girls, so I am sure he probably chalked up the first 20 nasty comments as PMS. It was too much for me to swallow honestly. That was where, for me, it went wrong. There is not a guy in the world I know that will be put off, spoken rudely to and told NO so many times and keep coming back. I understood that Jill had a mom who was probably nastier than she was, for a good reason (that is spoiler alert), but still so overboard.

It was really when a sort of truth came out that made a redemption possible. Still, it hurts to think that he saw her as a challenge. Maybe it was a manly sports like mentality. I dont know.

3 stars

Sophia Bleu is a secret identity where I can write about fantasies and falling in love and all the smexiness in between.  In real life, I’m likely catching a plane, chasing kids, or making out with the love of my life—all 6 ft 3 inches of hotness that he is.  Life is pretty good.
