Publisher's Summary

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.

Such a Shallow Shame

I liked the premise of this story, and the voice actor was really good, but so much of the story consisted of Will being large or fat, and Mac being attractive. I felt shallower for listening to the whole story, but I did want to know what happened to the library. It was an interesting story, but Will deserves so much better.

On the fence (spoilers)

I'm honestly unsure about this one. I like the premise but Greta just gets under my skin. She is shallow, obtuse and worst of all stuck up. I can excuse the first two but not the last. Towards the end I wanted nothing more than to reach through the book and slap her, especially when she called Will fat. She is such a hypocrite and that part of the story is never really resolved if you ask me. There is zero explanation for why Will would still want to be with her after she was so callous and shallow towards him. Given, before she was callous Will straight up admitted that he knew she wouldn't give him a chance because of his looks. In the end things just don't really jive with Greta's character or the outcome of the story.
All in all, not the worst thing I've ever read but certainly not the greatest. I prefer a stronger more fierce female lead and this story does NOT deliver. Not sure I would recommend it to anyone. Bit of a let down. But hey, maybe that's your thing.

Take a chance on me

A sweet romance with a little drama , secrets , and finding true love . .
The narrator did a fantastic job acting out both the male and female characters .
A clean romance
Look at the inside and not the outside and you just might find the love you have been looking for

Written for teenagers

I read this book for our book club. It is really for teens not adults so I had a hard time getting through it. I also did not like the narrators voices especially when she did the boys voices. So that made it hard to listen to. But teenagers might really like this book so my assessment may not be a fair one. I think it might be better to read it rather than listen to.
