Publisher's Summary

One night and my life completely jumped the tracks. Actually, a pack of expired condoms did that - the rest of the night was pretty amazing. Open bar at a friend's wedding. Bad dancing all around. Stupid trivia bets with my fellow Ice Knights hockey teammates. And Tess Gardner. The factoid-blurting, fandom-T-shirt-wearing, no-I-don’t-want-a-relationship-with-you woman makes me forget for one night that I’m a man with a routine and my future all mapped out. Still, it sucked she left our room without giving me her number. 

Fast-forward to when she tracks me down and tells me I'm going to be a daddy. Jaw, meet floor. Now I've insisted that she and our little peach pit move in with me after her apartment floods. She agrees as long as there’s no funny business, no shotgun weddings, and no more nights spent naked together. Sounds easy enough. I was prepared for the late-night runs for more pickles and peanut butter, but I wasn’t prepared for Tess. She’s like a glitter rainbow sparkling in the middle of my all-neutrals house, messing up my rigid schedule and turning my world upside down. What the hell do we do next?

Adorkably brilliant!

AWK-WEIRD is perfectly titled. I instantly loved Tess and her amazingly unique personality. Cole is also weird, which is wonderful! Nobody is perfect, but life is all about finding someone who complements your weirdness. This book nails that connection. Add some self doubt, stubborn characters hell bent on protecting themselves my NOT changing anything and then sprinkle in some serious connections on a soul-bending level with some delicious sexual tension and you get something wonderful. I listened to this on audible and loved every moment. Tim and Kelsey are excellent and I will definitely listen to more of their work. Definitely worth the credit. Sweet, dorky, sexy, wonderful!

meh

I've really enjoyed this author in the past but this book packed sparkle, instead it felt pumped out and relied too much in basic room com tropes and specific ones to this group of friends. by the end, I felt like the h wasn't worth rooting for and the H was only slightly better. this is not up to the Lucy and Frankie caliber

Fun. starts strong

I rather enjoyed the first half of the book. Despite not being a fan of failed condom plot plots, this one wasn’t terrible. We have two trivia fans with chemistry and some coping mechanisms that are becoming more hinderance than help. Wedding hookup with complication. The problem is, that’s the whole plot. After the very well handled “this baby is happening” scenes, things bop along well enough for a while. Two people like each other and have great sex, but keep convincing themselves to part ways despite a baby on the way and no real need to part ways. Halfway through, the push-pull with the coping mechanisms stagnates. The issues recycle a couple times without moving forward. It’s intensely shallow and without nuance. It makes for a breezy read, but I wanted an actual discussion about the ex. I wanted a path for not-Thor’s OCD to not go away, but be accommodated since she already knew it was, in many ways, helpful to him. Her issue, while deep seated, needed a less complex solution and got it, but only after beating her head against the same wall and not discussing it a few times. More discussion would have helped and added depth. I don’t really understand why they work. He has drunken rebound sex and… somehow she’s the one? I mean, she’s fine and all but he is an athlete who makes (presumably) millions of dollars and would be draped in available women but somehow doesn’t date. It’s just too simple. The friendships are the best part of the book. Both main characters have good friends who provide good advice and come to their aid and hang out and joke with them. The cat, Khan!, is enough of a character to be worth including, but if he’s still bitey when the baby comes, that’s unsafe. We don’t find out beyond an expectation that’s he’ll outgrow biting. Steam: Medium-low M/F. Starts off page, moves on page. There are a couple hot scenes but nothing particularly spicy. I never really understood how this guy who doesn’t date at all, even platonically, for months st a time outside the ex, got good at sex if he’s a basic guy who doesn’t like variety or trying new things. Narration: well done. good quality.

Awk-weird

I was so looking forward to this book as the culmination of Gina, Lucy, Fallon, and finally Tess's story. The narration for the others was all done by the same narrators so I didn't think too much of it when narrators were switched out. It was so distracting that I couldn't concentrate on the story . It sounded so FAST, nasally and high pitched. I tried slowing down from 1 to .75 but that was too slow. Maybe it was just me... but I would suggest sampling and then sample again before purchasing.

One of the best audios I've EVER listened to!

Have you ever listened or read a book that you identified with the characters so much? Well, this was it for me. This book was exactly what I needed to listen to. Tess and Cole have an unconventional start to their relationship. Then poof! There is a surprise pregnancy to complicate matters. They both fight their attraction and feelings for each other that it hurts. This book seriously had it ALL. Comedy, hot guys playing hockey, hilarious animal and HOT scenes. Tim Paige has quickly become one of my top narrators and he does an amazing job on this book. Him and Kelsey have a great combination of voices that lend so well together. Kelsey is always amazing and captures the spirit of Tess perfectly. I really can't say enough amazing things about this book. Now I want a kitty named Khan too! Thank you Avery for writing a book about awkward characters. As a seriously awkward person myself, this book seriously hit home for me. And thank you to Tim and Kelsey for bringing it to life. HIGHLY recommend.

Very funny!💜

I loved this story! Charming and witty, but more than that it has heart!! This fun-filled RomCom will have you laughing out loud!! The ramblings of random facts are hilarious!! The narration was amazing! Kelsey was wonderful as always. This is my first Tim Paige book and he was absolutely perfect. They both really brought these characters to life. I highly recommend this book!! Sisters Spotlight 💜

ok story, but calling this a romantic comedy is a

I personally don't feel that this book, or any that I have listend to By this author should be in the romantic comedy category. There's not really much laughter and the girls are so stupid and act so ridiculous that I can't make myself listen to another story even though I really want to know about the other men in the series. I am also so over how the author also makes out the male lead to be the bag guy when it's always the girls being dumb and using their bs to push the man away.

Love!

I have loved the Hartigan/Ice Knights universe!! I wish there was more!! Tess and Cole meet at mutual friend Lucy's wedding. They hit it off despite Cole being stuck on his on and off again former flame. After wedding shenanigans, they don’t think they will see each other again until they get a little surprise.

Funny and predictable but sweet

After reading a whole bunch of more serious books it was nice to have a sweet little romance. Even though you know what’s going to happen the journey there is delightful.

Good

I enjoyed the way the book began. Tess allowed do much doubt to cloud every single part of her life. why did she stay with her family is beyond me. Her family treated her like crap. She was a true door mat. I didn't like that Cole wasn't an Alpha. He was a regular guy with a real man's doubts a indecisions. I don't want reality. Also this story wasn't really funny. It had some fun parts but not enough to call it a rom-com. The narrators were great both very appropriate. Still a good book to read which is why I rated it a 4.

good vacay read

Both characters are likable and the story was entertaining. Nothing too deep but fluff and entertaining enough to keep you company for a day at the beach. Just what I was looking fot.

Strong start

This is one of those books I have found browsing through and then had to wait a long time till finding again. Wanted a giggle fest, Am let down sadly, the beginning of the story is good, but then ... Other people have said it here better.
