Holly is on the rebound after a breakup and attends a Halloween party dressed as a slutty nurse. She's been set up on a blind date and was told that her date is dressed up as a doctor. So when Holly eyes Matthew, a physician's assistant, in scrubs, she thinks that he's her date. Matthew, who is on the nerdy and socially isolated side, but still hot and sexy in his own way, cannot pass up this opportunity to hang out with this mesmerizing girl. And then one thing leads to another. This story was hilarious and filled with multiple embarrassing and awkward moments that made both Holly and Matthew lovable. Matthew's internal monologues were so entertaining and endearing with how he wanted to portray himself a certain way to keep Holly, but felt so out of his depth because he truly likes this girl as more than a fling. As for Holly, she might've had her fun, but she's a serious commitment woman at heart and doesn't think she and Matthew have a future after being so casual. I definitely want to read more about this couple!
Love makes me a klutz, too. (Okay, I was a klutz anyhow, but love can handle the blame.) This book just couldn't be set down after the first chapter. I found myself smiling and laughing all the way through it, loving my new nerdy friends. The only thought I have after reading the horrible words "THE END" is "just when in 2017?"
5.0 out of 5 starsThis was my first Ryan Ringbloom book and I loved the humor

This was my first Ryan Ringbloom book and I loved the humor! I think she does a great job of using the first-person, alternating narrators to have fun with humorous turns of phrase and descriptions. The two main characters are quirky, comfortable in their quirkiness, and believable in their connection. I have already reread some of the more humorous sections! I decided to purchase this book after seeing on Ms. Ringbloom's author page that in the event of a zombie apocalypse she's going to let the first one eat her brain and get it over with. I thought, "I think this person's humor will probably jive very well with mine," and absolutely it did. :) My kids kept asking me why I was laughing (not that I would be telling them details!).
I agree with another reviewer that this book is a little different than Ms. Ringbloom's other books - I would describe it by saying the characters in this book are settled in life and for the most part content with themselves (and of course, this book has the laugh-out-loud humor). Her other books have younger characters who are brought to us in the process of evaluating the way they've been choosing to live their lives and having to move past certain outlooks or habits. The humorous phrasing is there (the other books are also alternating first-person narrators), but on top of the romance between two characters you have the personal growth of characters who are learning to make the choices that will bring them personal contentment.
5.0 out of 5 starsFabulous and fast-paced, the perfect escape read!

Witty, sly and never disappointing, a highly entertaining and funny book that will be sure to make you smile the entire way through! Ryan Ringbloom does it again in stunning fashion as the Daniels boys are brought back for a hilarious and fresh new take on finding love when you least expect it! I've never loved a group of brothers more then the Daniels! Little Matty is all grown up...and stumble upon an unlikely romance when love falls into his lap! Fun and fast paced, The Two Night, One Night Stand will have you swooning until the very end and squealing with delight! Absolutely love and one of the fall's best new reads! Can't wait to see what lies in store next for the Daniels! 2017 can't come soon enough!

A blind date. A horrible mix-up. One wild, unforgettable night.
Holly never expected to meet a hot, sexy guy when she agreed to a blind date with her best friend’s brother. The thing was that she mistakenly assumed the wrong guy. But, for Matthew, it was Happy HallowPEEN, as he met an incredibly, hot nurse that night. But should he be honest and tell her he was not who she was supposed to meet? Well, she ended up finding out the morning after…you know…after the wild, passionate sex. But can the two get past this one-night stand that ends up happening twice?
You can’t help but love these two awkward and nerdy characters. A funny Halloween love story. Another fun one by Ryan Ringbloom.

I loved this book - it had me laughing non stop.They say that life puts you in the place you are supposed to be. For Holly and Matthew that just happened to be the case. I Loved how the author connected the character's lives together with humor and humiliating moments. My favorite character (Peen) really had me snorting with laughter. If you're looking for something light and fun for the summer, this is it. I read one of Ryan Ringbloom's other books last year and loved it as well -Ms. Ringbloom you are now on my list of authors to browse.
I was looking for something cute and funny to read and the title of this one sounded like what I was looking for. It turns out.... it definitely was! Matthew and Holly meet at a bar in a sort-of mistaken identity mix-up and end up going home together. Their story was cute, fast-paced and laugh-out-loud funny at times. This was the first book I have read by this author, but I will absolutely be checking out her other books!
I enjoyed this story from page one. I love a book that instantly draws me to the characters. A true feel good fun story. Laughed out loud several times and smiled throughout. This author is excellent will read more from her. Highly recommend

I am a massive Ryan Ringbloom fan. I just find her writing style unique and quirky. This book did not fail to disappoint. Hot boy a girl and a talking penis how can you go wrong. It was funny and sweet but most of all entertaining. At parts i had tears coming down my face from laughing and could just imagine it happing in real life. I like that its relatable. It had me hooked from the very first page. I love the fact that Matt is hot in a geeky way and Holly is sweet and cute. It was a great way to spend a rainy afternoon. If you have not read Ryan's books I would highly recommend them.
